Game drawn
06 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Poor Italy...
07 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Am I _REALLY_ the only person who has a draw vote up?
07 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Nope.
07 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Me too! The Triforce votes as a bloc haha.
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I'm stabbed! Betrayed by the English, whose ambition now outweighs their loyalty! Curse you, fiends!
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: The Triforce had grown too mighty. We had no choice but to act.
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: At least Germany signed off calling us his friends :) oh, wait....
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Haha. Good game, gentlemen.
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: How long until Russia breaks through now that I can't cause havok in his midst?
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: He won't. It'll end in a 3-way draw between England, France, and Russia I would guess. Russia no longer has the firepower to overpower E/F even with your help, and E/F would be foolish to go to war because it would ensure a Russia solo.

It was great playing with all of you. I really enjoyed this game, even if my final SC count leaves a bit to be desired ;) The time I was knocked out is perfect because I'm just leaving on a vacation, so I won't have to check WebDip.
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Good game Germany & Austria.
08 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I wonder who will be next.

Oh, wait. Nevermind.
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1911: I don't want to die :(
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1911: I don't want to go :-( /*High-Fives Dr. Who fans who recognize reference*/
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1911: It is hard for people not to recognize the reference these days.
13 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: And that's a wrap for me. Thanks everyone. Good game.
13 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Come, TUrkey, Join us here on the bench. Help us generate the bad juju.....
15 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Happy 3-way!
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Great game, everyone. Are y'all still up to share message logs? Last I checked, everyone but Germany and the new Russia had said they would do it (old Russia said he would).
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: (for new Russia's info: we had agreed at the end of the game we would copy-paste our entire [long] message histories. I am going to compile it and then send a readable archive to everyone that sent me their message history. The point of this is to see how the game unfolded from other perspectives and learn from how others played.)
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm fine with that. I know I didn't have too much to add but it should make for some good reading.
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: I never particularly wanted to but I mean if everyone else is doing it, I can't stop it anyway haha
15 Sep 15 UTC I can do that too.
15 Sep 15 UTC GG all
15 Sep 15 UTC Good game everyone; when Valis invited me in to take the position, I thought it was a pretty enviable spot to be in. It still was, but there was some good heavy lifting done by France and England both to shut down taking this game to a solo.
15 Sep 15 UTC Anyone going to post an EOG thread? Also, Austria, how do we get you the compiled messages for each country? And do you want in chrono order? Reverse chrono?

Also want to say that I found this group to be one of the most enjoyable I've played with on the site. It was really a fun game. Hope to see all of you again!
15 Sep 15 UTC Thanks everyone. To get me the messages, please copy-paste your message history from beginning to end into a text file. I would prefer chronological order, but if you send me reverse chronological order I can reverse it -- just make sure it is consistent because each page is in reverse chronological order.

Once you've got it in a text file, please send it to me as an attachment to dipcompile@matsh.net. It took me about 20-25 minutes to copy-paste all of my messages. Once I get all of yours', I will compile them together and send the archive to anyone that contributed.
15 Sep 15 UTC Good game, everyone!
15 Sep 15 UTC GG all
15 Sep 15 UTC Thanks for a great game everyone. Two of you have already sent their chats to me. Once I get it from everyone, I will compile it and send it back to everyone that sent theirs to me. If you want your messages redacted from what others send for privacy reasons, please send me an email to let me know that and I will redact messages that involved you. I'm hoping this will be a good tool for all of us to learn from this match and improve the way we play Diplomacy. I know I am looking forward to seeing behind the curtain!
17 Sep 15 UTC Hey guys! I made a horrible typo. The email address to send these to is dipcompile@mattsh.net (two "t"s). If you already sent something, can you resend it?
17 Sep 15 UTC Just sent it in.
18 Sep 15 UTC I'll get mine together so the complete legacy of shame that was my play can be made public to complete the humiliation. :-)
18 Sep 15 UTC Haha. Wait till you read mine! I bet you will all laugh at the infancy of my play.
18 Sep 15 UTC Are we really having a poor match competition?
18 Sep 15 UTC Who's left who hasn't given you their press transcript?
18 Sep 15 UTC moi
18 Sep 15 UTC me. I'll find the time sometime in the next couple days
18 Sep 15 UTC me.
18 Sep 15 UTC I haven't sent mine
19 Sep 15 UTC We've got 3: France, Russia, and I. Hopefully we can get the rest soon :) Is anyone NOT planning to send it, so I don't wait for them? (if you don't send it, you won't get the result)
19 Sep 15 UTC Ill be sending mine over the weekend, lost the original copy I had been planning to send (typing in notes right before I have an automatic update was not a smart idea) so Ill get to copying it again here shortly.
19 Sep 15 UTC Thanks Espi.
19 Sep 15 UTC Germany's messages are in. We now have 4/7. Italy (Espl) promised his over the weekend, and still waiting on Turkey (jmspool) and England (diplomat554).
19 Sep 15 UTC (Thanks everyone who already sent them. I'm working on a script to present it all.)
20 Sep 15 UTC Good luck with that; I admire the tech skills.
22 Sep 15 UTC England's are in now. Just waiting on Italy (Espl) and Turkey (jmspool).
22 Dec 15 UTC I sent out the logs everyone sent me a few weeks ago. Did everyone that sent in their logs receive logs in return?
22 Dec 15 UTC How do you mean? I got an email from you with the logs. Was there something else to get?
26 Dec 15 UTC Nope, that's it. Life got busy and I didn't get around to doing anything fancy.
