07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh yeah for sure great move by him totally out of the goodness of his heart lol
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: (and no hard feelings for anybody regardless if thats not clear)
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: that's fake news all i know is that italy is undefended and instead of preventing anyone fro taking his centers he continues to persist on an utterly pointless stalemate with me
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: (no hard feelings either)
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Are you saying I'm lying about you threatening to give Russia the solo unless I got Italy to back off?
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Not to say that Italy insisting on a stalemate with you at the time was a smart play or anything, no issue with your opinions there
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes I'm saying you are either lying or you have been mislead by the italian media
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lol alright fair enough, guess you have to lie here so you don't look bad. Germany/France just know that Turkey is intent on giving Russia the solo, so if we can't make a line he's going to win
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Germany/France just know that austria is trying to save his own ass
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: i welcome our new russian overlords
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turkey did insist on helping give Russia a solo if Italy continued attacking when I asked if he was allying with Russia.
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: okay guys, i've realized that i told too many people
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: hahaha
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh for God's sake!
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: but can anyone else get on board that italy's choice to stalemate with me is futile and won't get him anywhere
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: like look at it, we're just stuck there
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Global chat is so much fun after all! It's a pity it's not being used more often!
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: England: please stop resisting french rule. we have way better food than germany.
07 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: England: Germans have beer
09 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: good game everybody
09 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: hopefully you can all get the petty squabbling done with before Russia solos with Turkey's help
09 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: i think we could also blame the italian for persisting in the pettiness which in turn fuels my desire to screw you all. I blame italy. and look, what he just did last turn was just short of nothing.
11 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: germany, why the north sea?
12 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1905: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
16 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
17 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: time to pretend I know what I'm doing
17 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Evidently the dude I replaced had a lot going on
18 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
19 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: germany had so much going on it needed another ruler?
19 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: New Germany checking in. Just doing my part to help out with NMRs
19 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: seriously? I'm the 3rd Germany?
19 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I case there are any doubts, Turkey has in fact been threatening to lay down if he didn't get his way. Also, Italy and no German leader (how ever many there has been) have spoken since 1901. So not sure whats what here. You guys can fill me in on the Deutschland private channel and I'll do my part to get this game moving along again.
19 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: no I see why everyone is leaving this game.....
20 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: because everyone stabs each other?
20 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Of course not. Because no one is talking. Might as well be gunboat
20 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: well i think there is communication but absolutely little to no follow through, literally nothing italy has told me has been the truth, and russia needed my help for a quick sec in his step to dominating europe but then that was it. I mean who else were we all gonna talk to if everyone's a liar
20 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Hahaha. I will say the global press gas been an interesting read. Anyways, I just jumped in to help out. I'm sure Germany will be toast soon enough
20 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: well it looks like everyone is just doing their own thing, so that's cool with me. My orders are in, best of luck against Russia....you're all going to need it. lol!
21 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: That turned out better than I thought
24 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1907: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
24 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Hello all. New Turkey here gl gl
25 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1907: anybody interested in a draw?
25 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Yeah, after Germany is formally eliminated
25 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1907: hey!! I step in to help game with a CD and that's the thanks I get???

hahahahaha
27 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: have fun guys! Good game
28 Feb 20 UTC Good game everyone!
28 Feb 20 UTC Well done France!

Just curious, why didn't you continue the game? It looks like you could at least get Italy and then you'd have pretty good chances of winning solo. No?
28 Feb 20 UTC i'm in too many games of diplomacy, so i'm trying to pare it down.
28 Feb 20 UTC i think it would have been difficult for him to really go solo. i tried earlier but clearly 1v3 doesn't work well
28 Feb 20 UTC that's the thing. i needed 5 more SCs. I could've broken into the North Sea next turn, but then Russia flanks me in NAO. it would've taken a long time to break into the north and by that time russia would likely have made common cause with italy to go after me.
