07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: At this point i have my draw vote up. I see no way to win (England beats me to Tunis) and i only see a draw now or an English solo.
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: My vote's up too
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: same lol
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Damn you italy!
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: So who isn't drawing at this point?
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy probably hasn't seen the board yet, given that he hasn't submitted retreats yet
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I demand that Austria halt his advance and return the colony of Greece to Italy, or I shall welcome and aid English victory. A 3-way draw can happen, but not if it means I leave with less points then I bet.
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: *4way
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria is so soloing .
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I shall not meet any demands along the lines of 'help me or I'll let England win'. Otherwise France and England will start saying similar things. Frankly, you aren't in a position to make demands so i suggest that you draw quicly.
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Draw Italy... for the frenchmans sale!
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sake
09 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy have you got your vote up?
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Wow, Austria. I guess Turkey was right about you. You've now stabbed every player in the game except for France
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm gonna go ahead and guess that you're the one who named the match, eh?
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: You stabbed me and germany soooo
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Fair enough!
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: You will all rot in diplomatic hell for your deeds in this game. May your austrias be plagued with italys moving in on trieste in spring.
But seriously, well played.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Wait i am not stabbing you, just keeping a secure border, i don't have the forces to attack!
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Come on don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining. What you tried in Livonia is exactly the opposite of what we talked about
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: But how am i supposed to attack you from here? Your move is equally not what we agreed!
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Who hasn't got their draw up at this point?
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: We both agreed it was best for my fleet to be in Livonia. Looks to me like you wanted to put your army there instead, but hey maybe I'm just reading the board wrong.

Anyway, if you've got more to say, let's move it off the pub chat
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: No keep it here!
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I have nothing more to say, are you trying to solo here or are you happy to draw?
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: You stabbed me after literally weeks of asking to draw. How can I trust you to draw at this point?
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Well put your draw vote up and see! I haven't stabbed you, I'm just ensuring the draw as i have always asked for.
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: one of you bastards haven't put up your draw and i'm curious as to who that might be
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I think its Italy initially: he was annoyed at me but having not taken Venice, I assume he will now. England has taken his down because he is hoping that Italy might remain annoyed at me and let him into Tunis so England can grab some extra points!
11 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: My bet is that's England will continue to play the "affronted " card while running out the turns and moving towards 18 SC's .... it's the " I can't trust you and so I must fight on " tactic that is often used when one side senses complete victory . Only if Italy and Austria move against him in unison this turn will a solo be avaoided .
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: ^what he said
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Germany your powers of perception are unmatched. It's no wonder you've been such an important player in this game. A powerful ally, a dangerous foe.
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Heh that was pretty good.
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Some games you win . Some you don't. What's clear is your comments show that you are in fear of the truth . Admit it .... you're playing the game ... all good but please dont get childish ... argh ... sigh ... teen girlish . We've all lost games ... particularly when playing middle powers . No biggie ... your strong reaction to my remarks ... well that just shows I hit a nerve ... it's what you fear the most ....
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Idk England, it just seems that you are the only one with something to gain by continuing the game, so I wouldn't be surprised if you were the one that did t have a draw vote up. Nothing wrong with that hah
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm not denying it though...I already said publicly I'm not drawing right now.
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: O sorry I thought you were :)
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I also thought that. Finally, an admission!
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Sorry, I thought it was clear when I said that I don't trust you to draw that I'm not drawing. I'm too "affronted," as Germany says
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: You don't trust me to draw??
12 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I have my draw vote up, there's no need to trust me?
12 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: Alright let me put it another way for you: you don't deserve a draw anymore. You poked too many hornets nests, you tried to play ring around the rosies with me all game, and then you attempted the most pitiful stab I have literally ever seen from someone with 14 centers.
12 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm down to speed this up if you guys are? I'll start pressing ready on my orders once I'm done negotiating instead of letting the clock run out.
13 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: This is a crazy game, good job England!
13 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Yeah, it's been a fun one!
14 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1910: G game England .
14 Apr 17 UTC Good game all. Sorry to those I stabbed, thanks to those who worked with me, hope to see you all on the next one.
14 Apr 17 UTC Good game! Hope to play with you all again
14 Apr 17 UTC Congrats England . Well played .
14 Apr 17 UTC Great points too !
