Game drawn
26 Apr 17 UTC Guys (I'm guessing France, because England is more reasonable and probably did what they said they did), can you actually put up your draw vote instead of going for this last desperate attempt to break us up?? This game is done...
26 Apr 17 UTC I can promise I'm not the holdout...for obvious reasons
26 Apr 17 UTC Draw vote is up
26 Apr 17 UTC Why would I keep going after England just stole Holland from me?
26 Apr 17 UTC I believe France
26 Apr 17 UTC Russia, come on
26 Apr 17 UTC Oh hahaha I missed that. Sorry for the accusation then France (genuinely that's my bad). Guess I should change my prime suspect...
26 Apr 17 UTC I believe Turkey. I want to believe England but I can't afford to be wrong, so I can't trust either England or Russia.
26 Apr 17 UTC It's not me! If it was me why would I have been pushing you (EF) to draw all this time?!?! Why did you take holland?
26 Apr 17 UTC I think Turkey is obviously telling the truth too.
26 Apr 17 UTC France I literally told you my draw vote was up before phase change, and I told everyone when I was refusing to draw
26 Apr 17 UTC I took Holland to incentivize France into drawing
26 Apr 17 UTC ^ True statement. Like I said I want to believe you and kinda do
26 Apr 17 UTC I meant England's first statement is true
26 Apr 17 UTC It should say "Votes: pause, cancel Cancel: draw", right?
26 Apr 17 UTC A big space between lower case cancel and upper case Cancel
26 Apr 17 UTC Yes.
26 Apr 17 UTC What
26 Apr 17 UTC https://imgur.com/a/ihotr, this is a draw vote?
26 Apr 17 UTC Hm. Taking Holland makes sense for that reason. Now I don't know who to believe. This could be a clever joint EF thing, but that seems like a stretch? I don't know. Whoever is up to something is definitely confusing me for what that's worth.
26 Apr 17 UTC Double checking because I'm new to this site
26 Apr 17 UTC Nice acting Russia
26 Apr 17 UTC Not
26 Apr 17 UTC Hooray for hidden draw votes!
26 Apr 17 UTC I really don't like HDV. I wouldn't make a game with one myself. #shamingvalis
26 Apr 17 UTC It follows the rules but it's a stupid rule.
26 Apr 17 UTC HDV is the best
26 Apr 17 UTC Gg all
26 Apr 17 UTC Don't insult my acting DO. That was uncool :(.
26 Apr 17 UTC Oh, and yeah I think HDV is probably better too haha.
26 Apr 17 UTC That was a fun game
26 Apr 17 UTC GG
26 Apr 17 UTC Good game Turkey. Genuinely think you dealt really well with a tough situation and I'm impressed that you made it into the draw when the easy thing would have been to give up.
26 Apr 17 UTC I enjoyed playing with you john
26 Apr 17 UTC DO sorry for the pathetic stab. If Socrates hadn't bailed on me it could have worked.
26 Apr 17 UTC Yeah tom, come back of the century or something
26 Apr 17 UTC Pathetic stab is better than a successful stab...
26 Apr 17 UTC For me! :D
26 Apr 17 UTC Nice game everyone. It was really enjoyable.
26 Apr 17 UTC It wasn't a pathetic stab, I think it was a good attempt, and really was only undermined by me bailing out. In hindsight I wish I hadn't, I just thought there would be other chances to break up the EF. DO stuck by you a lot more than I thought they should do.
26 Apr 17 UTC Yeah I don't know why I can be bizarrely loyal sometimes.
26 Apr 17 UTC It's ok I got that last minute stab in so I'm golden right??
26 Apr 17 UTC Last minute stab didn't offend me
26 Apr 17 UTC Nah. You stabbed me despite my loyalty. Refused to ever consider going after France. Definitely the opposite of golden :-(. </3.
26 Apr 17 UTC I probably should have moved on Russia when I built those fleets. That was the plan until about 20 minutes before the deadline and then I chickened out and wen the safe route. If I hadn't worked so hard to not be eliminated early, I would have definitely risked it.

But I didn't want to expend so much energy to stay alive this game and then see it be for naught because of an attempted stab at the end.
26 Apr 17 UTC It wasn't that he never considered going after France, it's that you pulled down your pants, bent over, and then asked for him to not fuck you. Look at the board after Spring 1903. You were 100% the easier target.

Also GG Turkey what a comeback.
26 Apr 17 UTC Turkey we could have forced a 3WD but I get your concerns about being cut out.
26 Apr 17 UTC Sorry Soc <3
26 Apr 17 UTC I thought that was the plan with the fleets. I think I would have managed to throw the game if you (turkey) did that. Not that you guys knew that, but I would have full on thrown that game the second Turkey stabbed me. And if I ever had the chance I would have had Turkey eliminated. I'm glad you didnt stab me though :-)!

@ DO - look at the person you didnt stab. The person who thinks a metaphor like that is in anyway appropriate? Gross. Anyways, I'm referring to not going for you *after* you stabbed them. Stabbing me in 1903 makes sense. After you stabbed them, they definitely should have gone after you. Even in 1903 though they should have guessed that I wouldn't stab them and you would. Stabbing me opened them up to your stab, which could have been a real problem for them, if I did the predictable thing and followed it through with you.
26 Apr 17 UTC it's okay DO <3
