21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear

shout out to austria for being austria
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: everyone in this game, if you're still in, you're not out, and this shit ain't over

not while i have any mother fucking thing to say about it

21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: which i do
02 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: This game is a complete bust. For the sake of game integrity, we should vote cancel. Too many missed turns.
02 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: You're voting Draw.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: How convenient for you Italy...
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: This guy. Over here. Can you believe this guy? This guy over here?
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: What we can do. Wipe Italy off the board then draw. Given, in all honesty, a France afk mostly just helps Italy.

So integrity deems we take him off board and then draw. In all fairness.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: In my experience, you only vote Draw for one of three reasons:

a) You're being forced to.

b) Everyone except you and your Draw Buddies are dead.

c) Someone else is going for 18 and you're part of a Grand Draw Alliance to keep them away from it.

I don't think any of these reasons apply. I think Italy is calling for Cancel, and yet voting Draw, for Some Other Reason.

I don't even know what it is, but I don't trust it.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Say "integrity" again, motherfucker. Say "integrity" one more goddamn time.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: You saving-and-not-readying so we all have to wait the full turn type of person, you.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qr91dJvbqs

Good night.
02 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: I might not be here for the next day. Not sure if we need to pause I forget the time limit
03 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: We should pause for England.
03 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Agreed. Pausing for England.
03 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry I'm back
04 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Leaving my Pause vote up just in case it's needed on short notice later.
04 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: You know how you know when you've got a good ally? When you agree on something, and then you do what you agreed to do, and the future ends up being exactly the way that you predicted it would.

To win this game without rushing 18, you need two of those.

06 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Hey y'all, I live in New Orleans, which is currently in the projected path of a hurricane. I and everyone within several miles around me might lose internet access in the next 48 hours. Got my pause vote up, and y'all know I don't miss turns. Please vote Pause if it looks like a deadline is creeping up and I won't be here for it.
06 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Sure, sorry to hear.
06 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Sure, sorry to hear.
08 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hurricane missed us completely. Game on.
08 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thursday: "The hurricane hits Saturday night! The governor's office is recommending that everyone be in their homes no later than 8pm Saturday."

Friday: "The Mayor's office has ordered a citywide 6pm curfew Saturday night! If you're out in the streets after then, you will be arrested!"

Saturday: "GET IN YOUR HOUSES OMG APOCALYPE nevermind curfew lifted lol"

09 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Alright, this is seriously a jam that you can listen to while you're playing Diplomacy:

This is no fantasy.

The purpose of our common military effort is - War in Europe. - War in Europe.

The destruction of nations - We are proud of this record.
09 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: It goes away with age.

11 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1908: You see what DeNiro just did there? That's what we call a "carebear" play.

11 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1908: How come the devil smiles?
11 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1908: 18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: What did you think I was going to do, convince him to attack me?

Vie to Rum keeps me neutral until one of you gets the upper hand on the other, and then I stab the loser.
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: And no matter who I'm allied with, my border is Vie-Rum.
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: I mean, you're smart, and I'm smart. Both of us understand the game. At least bullshit me. But I don't agree to a losing proposition lol.
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: You know what's a losing proposition? Fighting over Vienna while Turkey is coming at you and I'm not stabbing him.
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: As for me not having done anything adverse to Turkey yet, it's Fall 1901 and I'm in Black. What more could I have done by now?
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: I mean, I *would* build in Sev, but taking Vie is my top priority, and helping France is my second, and I've only got two builds.

Unless you're planning on stabbing France at some point because you don't think you have enough centers with what I've offered you, which I respect. But I'd prefer you tell me now so I can start working with England instead of France.

Yes, I am willing to renegotiate our entire board-wide alliance structure around Vienna.

Just lemme have it, and kill Turkey, and we'll draw with either France or England, depending on how stabby you're feeling.
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: I will take Vienna now, and I will give it to you when you escort me into Serbia (trade).
18 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: I'll have Vienna this year. Put a smooth move on Turkey this turn and my decision process will get a lot easier.
18 Sep 2017 Spring, 1902: I'm working on Turkey
18 Sep 2017 Spring, 1902: And fine, you can have Vienna. I will go east.
18 Sep 2017 Spring, 1902: Hooray! Now we don't have to worry about anything except your center count, which I suspect you may wish to increase by stabbing France at some point.

Do you intend to do this? If so, I can start working with England now.
21 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1902: So now you're just going to be killing the Turkish Monster you created, right? He's got an awful lot of fleets, and I'm willing to bargain with him because there's only one way for them to go.

You could have just let me have Vienna and fought Turkey. And then France, if you felt like it. But no, you created a mutant Turkey to come after me.

This is all about Vienna, and it sucks.
21 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1902: I'm more than happy to fight turkey with you, as a mutant turkey is bad for both of us. I but I wanted to kill Austria first. Now I have some firepower.
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qr91dJvbqs

So here we are. Do we have anything to talk about?
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: You know where you fucked up? You went for 18 right off the bat, and didn't even try to convince anyone otherwise.

You didn't just run down the hill, you yelled your ass off while you did it.

Organizing a coalition against you was not hard.
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: Coulda been a nice F/I/R, but you fucked that up.
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: France is still in the draw.
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: I'm going to support France into Venice.
Tue 26 Sep Autumn, 1904: So is Turkey.
Thu 5 Oct Autumn, 1906: So I figure that if Germany retreats to Tyl, he's going to make a run for Mar, because he doesn't have to disband this tun, no one is in a position to stop him from getting to Mar.

That means a French disband, which probably means a stronger England, which is probably no good for you.

I think your best move might be to retreat to Tyl instead of disbanding, because the results of Germany getting into Tyl are worse than just annihilating each other there.
12 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1908: That's sort of an accurate transcription. There's some stuff missing, and and it's not clear in a lot of places which of us is saying what.

"8 Sep 2017 Autumn, 1901: I mean, you're smart, and I'm smart. Both of us understand the game. At least bullshit me. But I don't agree to a losing proposition lol."

That was Italy.
12 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1908: I've already had the transcript =)
12 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Drama
16 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1909: "carebear"

Carebear.

Talk shit again.
16 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: There is a procedure.

17 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: We have removed the heretics, rejoice
17 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Not doing any moves, just Tyr > Tus and Ven >Pie to remove the ugly off the map.
