13 May 10 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi everybody!!
17 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I am going to post a thread in the forum to try to get a new Austria.
17 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Unless people wnat to draw now, which I suspect Russia will not.
17 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: put a post in the forum
17 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: be a man russia and draw....
17 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry guys for missing all those turns but its hard for me to get on most the time.
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia you had 3 people next to you miss turns. This wud be bs if you didnt draw this game. Especially with so many points. Ive seen pots of 35 get drawn for much less than this.
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: england miss his turn, and that was good for france not for me (because he was my allied); Austria miss one turn and that let me the opportunity of taking Bulgaria without problem (so all that turns missed as you said only gave to me 2 SCs, so what's the point?)...i've been in more games with CD and the people didn't vote draw
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: but i will vote draw, is just that i want to build :)
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: Russia...you said yo0u wud draw? this is stil bs in my opinion
19 May 10 UTC Spring, 1905: yes that can be considered as bs...and also forcing a draw is not "elegant" the CD has made the game different, but remember that the one the went into CD was my ally, and normally that's not good for the remaining player (in this case me), of course finally i will draw (because everybody wants and i cannot do anything against everybody) but i want to enjoy the good position that i had in the first year (and in that moment there was no CD or missing moves)
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1905: Sorry man i was just syaing though that is just really changing the game too much
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: XDD, don't need to apologize (but remember that Austria was my allied, so i would be more happy if he would not gone to CD)
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: LOL, I'm not sure I follow that logic. Instead of having an ally in Austria, you had an easy path to take over all of Austria, so you still have an ally in Austria. If you want to win a game like this Russia, thats fine, but stop pretending like the NMRs hurt you.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: i didn't pretend that, i just said that i didn't give as much as you said (it didn't give me the game, in fact the one that is helping me a lot is Germany)
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nah, even without Germany, you would win this game, you just would have taken German centers instead of either Italian or French. As I said, I have not told you you should draw. Its your decision to make. But lets stop pretending this win required any skill on your part.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: sorry but i'm not going to attack Germany, and when Austria was moving i had 10 SCs, and my advance before he went into CD was of 2 SCs, (that means some skills right?)...once he has gone to CD i get 2 new SCs...please look the orders and the board before speaking :)
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm not saying you should attack Germany. My point was that even if Germany wasn't helping you now, you still had the easy win. And I've given you kudos for turning Germany in private.

I've seen the orders, I've been in the game. Take the win, as I said its your right.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: thanks, bu that depends on Germany...but i would like to play another game (at least the 6 players that we are still in this game :P )
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: No, I think I would have to pass on another game with you. I enjoyed the Diplomatic aspects of the game with you, but the idea of the game is to have a battle of skill. When all your neighbors CD, it changes the game too much and it becomes a battle of luck, whoever is luckier to have their neighbors CD. I'd rather not waste my time with such a game.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: jajaja, irepeat again, only Austria went to CD (only one), England just disppear between you and me (and his no moves benefit you not me)...in any case up to you
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: LOL. Whatever. Turkey stopped moving, Austria went into CD, with only you in the area to take his SCs. England was already half dead, with French troops in Liverpool, but regardless, its another country that wasn't participating in the game, regardless of who it helped, it ruined the game.

I merely answered you when you asked to play another game with me - no, I think not, because you prefer to continue games that have 3 countries that stop making moves.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: ok, lets see if turkey stop moving
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Whats the difference with Turkey now?
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: You had already said once you would draw, then changed your mind, I suspect you are doing the same again. As I said, if you want to win, thats fine, just stop pretending its an accomplishment or that you might draw.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: he can join forces with italy
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oh give it a rest, seriously. Whether he does more or doesn't is irrelevant. Just say you plan on winning this game regardless of what happens and stop being such a slimy worm.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yeah, that one fleet of Turkeys will turn the tide and beat back the Russians. LOL, give it a rest.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: i say the same give it a rest
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: leave the game and i will draw
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: No. I'll take the loss. Not a retired.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: hey now that fleet can be pretty intimidating...
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ha russia is just going to keep playing and steal our chips
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: W/e russia you do not deserve this vicotry at all and you know this....I hope you feel good about it. Everybody else just knows your a bitch.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: is right russia is a bitch, he get 3 builds the first year because everybody moved, and the next year get another one for the same reason...and that's not all he gets after that 2 SCs more taken for countries that were moving!!! and then came the "not moving" Austria that gives him a third SC....


you are right the CD of Austria gave me a lot!!!! one SC!!! incredible :)
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: TURKEY CD'd the 3rd TURN! AUSTRIA the 4th TURN! THIS THAT IS THE ONLY REASON YOU CUD EXPAND UNCHECKED!
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: what!!! turkey was moving all the time, come on
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: upps you are right he didn't move that autumn
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: and please don't shout
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: im sayin dont play off that it was "skill" it was just lucky you got surrounded by incompetence and cd's that is it and a real diplomacy player wud draw and respect his other dip players
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, Turkey made no moves in 1902, which was coincidentally the time you invaded him.
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Russia just stfu? you are going to win. We cant stop you. Know why? Because 3 countires quit! 2 were right next to you, one cud have stopped you and Germany failed to contain you! You are a cheap bitch.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: i forgot about turkey (i'm playing too many games) so sorry for the misunderstanding, and sorry for my words; i was lucky and is not fair. Italy stop insulting me because i never shout you or insult you (things that you have done). Now i'm a bit upset because of your behaviour.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: you lose your nerves very easily... and you know i hate that, i'm really freaking out with your words (if you want to learn just take a look to the french words in this chat); i hate to be called "cheap bitch"....i only feel sorry for the others that have to suffer the consequences of your words
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Russia that is crap. That is now your 4th excuse for not drawing. As I said a long time ago just be a man and admit you like the cheap victory. Don't blame the lack of a draw on Italian words. That's just an excuse, your 4th excuse, so please save the sanctimonius BS blaming Italy. I dontlike his words either but that is not your reason for not drawing.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: I get heated when I get stolen from! Especially in this manner! Straight BS...every turn you dont draw just increases my anger! If using derrogatory statements against you gets my point across I am fine.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Idk how a person could be so inconsiderate. You disrespect us and this game with your actions Russia....I will NEVER play a game with you again after this. And if I happen to end up in one, I will ONLY attack you. Maybe I will try to only end up in games with you...that way I can make your life on Webdip hell.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: You didn't get stolen from. Lighten up. It's just points. And Russia apparently highly values points. This game just had a lot more luck than most and a lot less skill. I've entered in all holds. That should make it go quicker.
20 May 10 UTC Spring, 1906: But seriously Russia, when the game is over and you see who I am, I would ask that you try to avoid games I am in.
