16 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello everyone!
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: I am sensing a possible double NMR from France and Germany. We still have 15 hours but still this was an open game
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings, and good luck to all!

Nope! No NMR from me. Hopefully France will check in as well.
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Yay!
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Still waiting on France...
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1901: I would say we cancel if France doesn't show up, everything else ruins the balance of the game.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm so happy to see The west working together. That jugg threat was really making me nervous. Engkand, Germany, you both have my support.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Is there any need to be hostile to me over private chat Austria and gloatful in global chat.

I understand that you re mad that I did not verbally explain for a planned bounce in Galicia as a DMZ (since it is usually assumed that a planned bounce happens between Austria and Russia in Galicia).

I was hoping for a good game and that people would practice good sportsmanship but I was wrong for hoping of such things.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Thank you Austria. I am going to be going into civil disorder as I am quiting playing diplomacy on this site. Have a great day.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Quitter.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Just saying a bounce in Galicia is very different than a DMZ. a demilitarized some implies no forces try t enter unless otherwise noted. Considering in my message I also suggested the benefits of moving Warsaw into Ukraine as opposed to Galicia; it was pretty clear what I intended you to do. It's okay, play the victim card now that you have a crumbling north and see if it gets you any brownie points in response to you leaving the site. It's diplomacy people respond to the crap you do; if you can't handle it get out the kitchen.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: And having readied orders is a bad way to go into CD. Just saying. Before anyone really thinks you plan on leaving.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: So... you're going to quit because someone said something mean? That's not a good way to look at a game that you're playing online. Or life.
I mean, it's actually easier to deal with in a game, because you can just kill them off. If you really don't like him, just take him out. If you can deal with him, then deal with him. But leaving the best site for a game you like because someone was a jerk is a horrible idea.

But hey, if you are gong to leave, make sure you get a replacement. That way, you can leave on the note that you're the better man by staying polite enough to keep it fun for other people.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Alright I will stay. Me going into civil disorder and changing the course of the game through that wouldn't be fair for everyone.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Why thanks you.
23 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1903: Aaaand three NMRs.

sigh. This is why I save my orders, instead of readying.
23 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1903: Oh. Only two. Nice save, Austria.

Either way, it's seven NMRs too many. I'm up for drawing, game is messed up. Maybe even a Cancel, but people seem to be less okay with that most of the time
23 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1903: Those were the first two NMRs this game. It is in general bad sportsmanship, but while I am always for cancel in the first year, there is nothing you can do when the players, who already faced elimination, don't put orders in. If one would then always draw or cancel, those people would have a spotless record.
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I would swear I put orders in. But obviously not. I've played lots of games, and I play to the end. Sometimes I miss turns, even when winning. So, sorry about missing the last one. Which is too bad because I did have a plan. :(
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: What the... I put in orders! And when did the phase time shift? Again?!


Crap.
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Anyway. Good game, France. I'll probably be joining you sometime soon.
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hey Guys, I will have visitors at my place the next few days, so in case I only answer "yes" or "no" to something you write me, please don't take it as a lack of politeness!
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: You know, there was another game where I had a single retreat, and it is a game where I am ahead. I would swear I did the retreat, but the unit was disbanded for no order submitted. Good game all.

Italy, tell your visitors you have priorities! :)
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italy, while i respect you visitors. I would respect them more if they played a game or two and showed they were worth their salt.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm inclined to agree with Austria. They must prove their worth.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: If they do not we shall vanish them to Switzerland. The black hole of neutral dread that creates excuses for draws and breaks up the center of the board unnessecarilyZ if Germany wants to roll panzers through Geneva and into Marseilles then by George he should. I also think if France is overtaken by Germany (German control of Paris) a French army should be built in North Africa and both Germany and France must agree on its moves each turn or it will hold. (Essentially the Vichy French)
29 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: I held out hope but I kinda expected that. You've played a good game Italy.
29 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wait, Turkey, are you just putting in holds? The heck? If you want out, email the mods. If you don't, give it an effort. It's not fair to hurt the whole game because you might be losing.

Best of luck, Austria. But yes, Italy has done well.
29 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: yea, its odd the amount of people on this map willing to puss out. I give russia credit for not leaving but still to threaten it was a bit off; and now Turkey just being a sour sport. not cool play guys.
30 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: I wanted to quit pretty bad haha. But I didn't. I'm enjoying the party with Germany and england. They know how to through a party fellas.
30 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1905: You've grown on me.
05 Nov 16 UTC Good game everyone. I will see you all next time I am sure of it.
06 Nov 16 UTC Good game by all, I hope to play again with you sometime in the future.
