20 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone
20 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: good luck
20 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: I hope people can see me as a trustworthy player, and not a big, bad Russian like Putin because in everyone game I’ve played Russia has been ganged up on, and I hope to make some allies in this game (except for maybe England because no matter what England goes for St. Petersburg which is hella annoying)
20 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: bring back the union, russia
26 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I forgot to enter a support move with Moscow. Rip
30 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'll ready up the builds when Italy, Russia have readied up.
03 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well - that was certainly the turn-key year of the Game thus far. Two Powers reduced to 1 SC and two Powers stabbed the other. Repercussions will flow aplenty from this momentous season.
14 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hey i just noticed that the interface has changed so that you cant see who has entered Orders / Readied up orders. Im a green tick anyway ;-)
15 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Guys it appears that GER has decided to be totally self-absored and preoccupied with petty vengeance. Apparently for GER that is better than playing for a Draw. Accordingly it looks like its goid game and congratulations toTurkey for a game well played. GERMANY has to be one of the most conceited and arrogant Diplomats ive ever had the misfortune to be located next to.
15 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: It is charming how your wording and attitude differs from the private messages, France. So to set the record straight, let me just mention that sharing a draw with someone who thinks their fellow players to be "fucking idiots" and "dickheads" is not something I find particularly desirable.

I would like to thank everyone else for maintaining good sportsmanship and express my regret for you being forced to bear witness to this exchange.
15 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hey everyone, Ger is an arrogant c#ck. Lets get the record clear. Throughout Game i sentt him.lots Press. Not much back. Most of what GER achieved up to 1906 was enabled by Fra. Taking BEL in 1902. Invading Eng, then also moving East against Russia - only happened because i withdrew from BUR and signalled clearly a peace across.the Maginot. Yet when it came to us cooperating together in 1907 to take NORWAY. Ger decided it best that he take it - even though he couldnt make build. Thus he prefer to deny FRA a build rather than act coopperatively and working together for Draw. So then in 1908 I ragdolled Germany - absolutely smashed him and outwitted.him tactically on the RUH move as well - for good measure. Its because of that 1908 that he now throws the toys out of the bath in 1909 and prefer to retribution against FRA rather than work constructively with me to try to hold the Draw. I made Diplomatic overtures to him AUT09 - moved out of MUN as sign of good faith. He sad nothing and then.move against FRA. So you can all make.your own minds about about who has acted Diplomatically and who has not.
16 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: You should have kept our alliance France. Big mistake to stab me and work with Germany instead!
16 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm trying to keep my end of the bargain ]about seeking a Draw] and fight to take back the Iberian.
Lets see how Germany plays it.
16 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: .....suffice to say that we're not talking to each-other ;-)
16 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: No small part of acting "diplomatically", be it with small or capital letter, is one's ability to foster amicable cooperation and end conflicts.

When I turned east in order to stop the Juggernaut, you greedily took the low-hanging fruit by taking completely undefended BEL, HOL and EDI. It was per se a reasonable, if short-sighted move, but presenting it as a proof of your tactical brilliance is rather laughable.

From then on, all you try to achieve here is trying to alienate me further, going as far as to bring your whining to the public and naming me... well, we won't even know whether it's supposed to be "cock' or "cuck", as you lacked the courage to write it properly :P .

So here's a hint for you - this sort of behaviour won't ever get you a draw that you so badly want. What I suggest is - take your own advice and start acting "diplomatically".
17 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1910: I've cast my Draw vote.
17 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1910: Stet - waiting until Build phase complete.
18 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1910: Stet - waiting until Build phase complete.
18 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1910: Turkey, what is your position?
18 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1910: It seems to me that it would take an error for the stalemate to be broken and I don't see any sense in playing out multiple years hoping for a mistake. I'll be voting for a draw after the build phase.
18 May 18 UTC GameMaster: damo72 was banned: no reply. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
18 May 18 UTC Who was damo72? (Which power, I mean?)
