26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Apologies. I meant if you meant yourself or Italy.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: obviously myself as austria, italy just couldn't defend himself worrying about turkey, clearly turkey is doing well, but there won't be any mercy coming from you in the south OR the north.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: this is just a complex situation where I will more than likely not survive, but hey who cares right? haha
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: So explaining all of this Austria... why did you attack me again? I feel it would have been wiser to let me attack Russia, instead of trying to defend an ally AND attack two other countries at the same time.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I don't have the man power to defend in the north OR in the south, my units will slowly dwindle away. in regards to attacking you, you gave me an ultimatum in warsaw. I don't do ultimatums, you want to work together and make an alliance but you demand things from your "allies" that's hardly an alliance at all. you could always make offers and suggestions but I don't see the point of demanding a power center from someone.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Is diplomacy or a friendly tea party? I was attempting to use deception (as you were). To have an advantage. But the past cannot be changed. I wasn't going to attack you until Russia was finished. So pur fight was inevitable.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: then why ask? and honestly pure fight ISN'T inevitable, you and france chose it to be so because after all "italy and austria are multi's" not true but still. I guess that's what happens whenever austria does so well. Like I previously stated, I will support whoever attacks the other and draw it out that way. germany, you're in a superior northern position, until you moved your units east. France, well, he could honestly take hol move up with his troops and destroy you in the back. I wouldn't want to see you lose because of a warsaw grudge.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: truth is france knows this already, and to be completely honest I hope he does attack you, before you get a single build. sure you will take st. p knocking russia out of the game. but he gets two italian builds this year, paris and brest. a fleet in brest, army in paris, moves MAO to english because let's face it, he can already do enough damage with his 4 fleets against my 2. Just make sure you're not TOOOOO thin when you're attacking me. Because if you do, france might get the tempty munchies. and its because of THIS eye opening conversation, I do so well in diplomacy, because you obviously know you are thinking about a possible attack now.
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: our*
26 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I think there has been enough talk. Let's all ready for the next round.
30 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1908: So, when I finish off turkey, would you care to draw? or no?
30 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1908: because if you want to do this i'll support whoever throws himself at the other. full fledged, I am an ally to the death! >:|
30 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1908: France needs 7, I need 9 to win. France has more of a say, at the moment, if you survive or not.
31 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1908: so what happens when you both find out at the end of the game I'm not a multi. and furthermore realize you only used it as a lame excuse to continue to attack me on my borders? in all fairness that's hardly a good reason.
31 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am unaware of when I have been aggressive toward you so far. I have only been eliminating Italy after he attacked me.
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I did not accuse you of being a multi, I was going to attack you anyway.
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm going to go out like scarface lol
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Chey hello to his little friend.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oh Austria, don't be so dramatic :) France needs but 6 more and you have 11. If it is not an insult, I will do my best to make sure that you are not completely wiped out.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: im not being dramatic, but I must admit scarface was a badass...lol
06 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1910: anybody want a draw? ^.^
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Italy does.
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Heck yes I do. And I want to be absolutely clear that it is only because I believe in world peace, and am sick and tired of having to kill the best and brightest of the young generation of France. Enough, France! Our children should be sipping wine together in the Alps, not firing guns at each other in the Med.
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Autumn 1903. That is why you lost your homeland.
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Hahaha.
Nice.
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: so what you're saying is kill italy and it's a draw?
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Perhaps.
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: It's a yes or no.
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: How does Italy feel about that
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: happy I'm sure....lol
10 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1911: Opps, accidently cut my own support. Oh well.
10 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1911: why didn't galicia support hold....wtf
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1913: Austria. Are you really going to not submit just so we have to wait.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1913: yes because i have 7 other games and I am timing them so they are all at the same time. It's quite smart actually.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: timed it just perfect...5 of my 7 are now at 24 hours remaining. :) super excited I can just log on twice a day instead of 4
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: lol nice.
But how will you respond to my urgent strategic messages in a timely way, Austria?!
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: not sure I know what you mean there italy :/
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: Just an attempt at humor.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: ahhhh. :) ha ha ha... :|
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: You know, I've been thinking. I really hate players who stop trying hard to prevent a win, just because they can get points out of it (germany). Remind me when this game is over to never play with you again. In fact, never play PPSC any more. The heart of the game is to win. and the win is what is deserved, everything else is second best and doesn't deserve merit. I resent you for not wanting to stop france, wholly and completely. You should learn the heart of the game, rather than worry if you are or arent getting enough points. I am disappointed in you sir.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: Oh good grief Austria. Your comments get more and more desperate the more you're pushed back. Your attitude enough and germanys interactions with me over chat alone could drive me to attack you alone purely based on personality. Like you implied earlier, you can't get made just because you got teamed up on. It's part of the game.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: It's not desperation France. if I was desperate I would be asking you to ally with me and germany to ally with me, I have stopped doing that a loooong time ago. I was merely commenting on game dynamic. it's both of your attitudes that have me annoyed. no willingness to loook at all options. and incase you didn't notice oh wise one. I am pulling back my units even though I could have held the line much longer. I'm not here to waste my time if nobody is going to actually play the game right.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: Please elaborate on how we aren't playing the game correctly.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: PPSC encourages others to solo while you pick up the scraps...elaborated. now ready up.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: There is no "right" or wrong way to play this game. I am growing tired of these anonymous games and being talked down to for my style of play.

It seems like those who claim that they play the "right way" are really just sore losers. I play for my own reasons, as well as anyone else.

There's such a thing as losing with dignity, apparently that is a skill that some players in this game are severely lacking.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: HA HA HA...it's okay, you're going to learn someday yea? :)
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: if I was a sore loser btw. I would have just resigned...that's a sore loser.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: and losing with dignity is what I am doing. :) Because I am still here trying to work diplomacy.
17 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1914: Woops. I missed a turn.
17 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1914: woops
