03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm not feeling too good.
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm kind of screwed now lol.
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Also does anyone know why I got an email saying I'm meta gaming? (I'm not)
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: What’s meta gaming ?
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Playing with someone who you know off the site.
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: With France, you were in the same game called "Ace-4". That's why they maybe called you out for it.
03 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I doubt it- a bunch of us were in that game that we ended due to multiple nmr's.
04 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well gentlemen, I don't think I'll be in this one for much longer. Nor am I in much of a position to slow the inevitable.
04 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: @France, I never implied that you actually are cheating, I just said that the reason why WebDip mods might think you are cheating is because you were in a previous game with Russia, with a similar name. I never said you were cheating.
04 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I appreciate the clarification, England.
04 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: and dont give up turkey, this game is too much fun for that
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1904: It's fun when you are winning.
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Its always fun
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1904: That is true though - when you're losing it can be a bit boring.
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Eh I got absolutely trashed in a live game as italy last night, still was fun- the player's personalities and strategies always make for an interesting game
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1904: I don't mind losing, it's just that the position I was in once I was stabbed is essentially impossible to recover from. Which is why I try to immediately take the Black Sea. Ah well.
07 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey can be a difficult play- I've bombed spectacularly as them
08 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: I got really confused because I'm playing a game where I'm Austria, and I was thinking "What? I didn't take Warsaw."

Well gentlemen, hopefully you guys at least leave me Syria. I did my best, or else my name isn't Assad!
08 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: I know, I’m Russia Nd Turkey in other games and it’s confusing!

I gave up playing multiple messaging games because it was too confusing what I’ve said to everyone. Gunboats are probably bette for multiple games
10 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm impressed you're still hanging in there England :)
10 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1906: I had an Austria in my last game as Turkey that was down to 1 center by 1902. He survived to the end of my solo. I think his final SC was in Berlin lol. I respect those that know there's no hope for them, but they carry on.
10 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Honestly, my favorite game of Diplomacy was as Germany, and I was down to 2 SC's, and managed to just keep changing sides, because both sides were about equal, and knew the other supported me at the time. I think I got down to one SC at one point, and I forget how I recovered, but I think I ended that game in a draw with like, 4 or 5 SC's in like, 1927.
13 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1907: GG England, you lasted a long time :)
15 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well that's pretty much the game- congrats to Austria, you played a great one. And... sorry to England.
16 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's fine. All of this is just a part of this game. It's a shame that you didn't see that our geographical position would let us face the east together but we can't change our decisions now, can't we.
16 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Not often I get to see an Austrian solo.
16 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: What you say is true, Phoenix. Accept my humblest apologies. As for me, hindsight is 20/20. GG nonetheless.
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: New Italy
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Bit late :)
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Though it would have been much harder if Germany and Italy had have carried on playing and worked to enforce a stalemate rather than giving up. I reckon it could have happened.
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: hey at least im still here lol
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Proud of you Russia!
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Ah thanks!
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: ^2nd'd, good for you man
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: yeah I mean it makes sense that someone wouldn't want to play if they're losing but it isnt fair the the rest of the players, and some valuable lessons can some during a loss. (This isn't meant to bash those who have left or are planning to leave, rather an expression of my alternative point of view).
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: I either try to get myself to the stalemate line to hope for a draw, or make life hell for the one who stabbed me :)
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Ah that's a good strategy. You betrayed me this time so ...

:)
16 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Only 4 times I think :)
17 Dec 18 UTC I was waiting for that to happen :)
17 Dec 18 UTC purevital, have you given any consideration to nmr'ing this turn?
17 Dec 18 UTC Let me just put my holds in before I forget :)
18 Dec 18 UTC good game all
18 Dec 18 UTC gg congrats!
18 Dec 18 UTC good game congratulations! somehow i ended up not dying!
18 Dec 18 UTC And I took over an NMR and survived.
18 Dec 18 UTC nmr? What's that?
18 Dec 18 UTC no moves received- it's what italy did twice in a row, and that gets you booted
18 Dec 18 UTC ah I see.
That sucks !
18 Dec 18 UTC Good job Austria, well played.
18 Dec 18 UTC yeah congrats! playing austria is always hard
