11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I have to say, Autumn 1902 is the earliest I have ever had someone threaten to throw the game because something isn't going their way...
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: What I am saying is if I lose munich at att then I will give every single center I can to Russia. Simple as that. So think before either you or Austria help Russia take Munich. Because no matter who gets it russia will be the one to benefit. If that I will be certain.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: And now everyone here on global can see who I was talking about.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fuck yea they can. I want them all to know why Russia solos.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Because you can't accept you made a mistake? Because if you can't have your way then you'll just give up? Because your a toddler?
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: What mistake did I make? That's where I'm confused? I'm suppose to assume you and Austria want to hand Russia a solo?? Well then by all means I made a mistake, and will take your name calling in stride. As a toddler I will allow the board to take on a huge russia as I hand him Berlin. Denmark. Kiel. And whatever else I can give him.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: You assume that our move that direction is toward you, which I also did inform you of before the turn happened. You haven't let it play out at all yet, and assume that Munich will be changing hands. I could easily have moved there seeing a move coming from the east toward you in order to help you keep Munich, but you instead assume and start to immediately plan to throw the game. So mistake 1 is assuming stuff and immediately accusing people of attacks that haven't happened yet, and mistake 2 was overextending yourself west and giving Russia an opportunity to invade you in the first place.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Just let the game play out before you try to assume things are going to happen. You're overreacting before anything has actually happened to you. If someone takes Munich then by all means react and do what you want, but to start planning that kind of action before you lose it means you are being short-sighted and giving up too quickly instead of trying to negotiate with those surrounding you. Don't give up before something happens, you have the ability to try and persuade people of what they should do still, use it.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: You do realize this is the global chat...
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fully aware.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: alrighty then
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I didn't drag it into global. Keep that in mind. Italy clearly can't keep his press professional and private.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The comment I made in global was a global comment to everyone. You were the one that replied to it in global. I intended to say to everyone that Autumn 1902 was the earliest I have ever had anyone threaten to throw the game, so that all the players knew something was going on, but I wasn't going to identify who that player was. You chose to respond to it in global, not my problem.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hey Italy. Eat a dick.
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: And before you get all pissy it doesn't break site rules since I didn't threaten you physically. So again I say... eat a dick
11 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: No worries, I think the point I wanted to make has been made. Thank you.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1904: "Come one, come all, to the midnight call, the invitation said,
come alone, and I'm drivin' home, so help me I do declare, it's a free for all,"
Quick, what song and artist is that?
18 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hell if i knkw
18 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: From a 5 second google search, I'm gonna say "Free for all" by Ted Nugent lolll
18 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: you got it.
18 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wow amazing, do I win anything??
18 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: You win recognition for your resourcefulness. Congratulations.
19 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thank you
19 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey got it.
19 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Et tu, Russia?
19 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: well
11 May 17 UTC Spring, 1914: Let's go Italy! Get that solo before I'm eliminated!
11 May 17 UTC Spring, 1914: I'll do whatever I can to assist.
14 May 17 UTC Spring, 1915: Hey hey, new turkey here
15 May 17 UTC Spring, 1915: hello
15 May 17 UTC Nice job.
15 May 17 UTC Good game everyone.
15 May 17 UTC No offense to the new Turkey that I'm very thankful took over to keep things moving, but I wish we knew who the original Turkey was in the game. They gave me a great fight in the Balkans until the very end. It was sad to see them CD out so close to the end of the game when they realized they were defeated.
15 May 17 UTC I knew the solo was coming when I saw the army in Livonia. Actually before that. Congratulations, Italy. Good game, everyone.
