22 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1902: England is back and ready to party!
17 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm the only one in this game that has had my nearest opponents play the entire time and it's finally catching up to me. For whatever reason, you both have chosen to ignore the middle of the board which leaves me no choice but to attack only one of you. I may be cornered, but I can determine who wins the game. I will begin retreating entirely from one direction unless some semblance of rational strategy is displayed.
17 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: u mad bro?

1) Italy played the entire game until you and Austria teamed up to crush him. And then you crushed Austria immediately after. Even then Italy came back to support you that one time, and you again crushed him the turn after. You wonder why you have no friends and are now alone against two opponents.

2) A strong alliance is a rational strategy. Your inability to create one doesn't make you better than anyone.

3) It's been "catching up" to you for several turns. England came back and I committed several units to finishing him off, and he pestered Russia significantly too. You were still unable to gain ground on either of us.

In conclusion, please do fully retreat from one direction so this ends much faster. Thank you.
17 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: It should be noted that Germany's surrender was provoked, not unprovoked. Also, you'll notice that both SEV and STP are missing from the Russian territory. Implying I had an easy game is a bit ridiculous, no? In addition, I offered you an alliance, I believe, and all I asked for was SEV in return. You chose to be obstinate, and now you're paying the price.
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Go get Turkey, boys.
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Please don't "u mad, bro?" me. This isn't a t-shirt shop on the Jersey Shore. Anyway, perhaps my frustration showed a little too much. And to get frustrated over this game is a little silly. True, your alliance allowed both of you to focus on where you needed to focus. Plain and simple. However, Russia's "alliance" request was a tad disingenuous. Offering help into an opponent's territory in exchange for one of your home territories that I was able to take from you earlier is not a genuine offer of partnership. I would've netted out my territories while you would have gained one. Regardless it's over and done with, and it's been a pleasure.
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Right on. The "u mad bro?" was just a popular internet joke... not the way I actually talk. Anyway, I've been known to let my frustration show in this game too, I get it.
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: well it was a pleasure for me too and a learning experience. It was only my second game ever so I definatly made mistakes!
Anywhoo, good game guys ;)
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Can I be blamed for offering aid in exchange for what was mine in the first place? It makes me the philanthropist, really.
19 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Lol. Ever the diplomat philanthropist.
19 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Quite. I thought it was clever, at least.
