21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks so much for joining, Italy. Thanks for starting to play WebDiplomacy, you have made it a while! Hit enter for the next one and we can make it as fast as possible if you want.
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: by the Italy, a live game is /not/ the best place to start out as your very first game ever, regular 24 hours games, you have more time to think, much better... and people can mentor, help and advise you, no time for that in live.
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: What do you mean hit enter? I have clicked ready.
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ahah I'm in a few of those. This is my first completed game however :)
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: And of course. I'll be around here quite a bit this is fun.
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: it's not completed yet..
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: True
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: True
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Jesus
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you for sticking around Italy. I look forward to playing with again on more friendly terms ;)
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game all! And me too :)
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: man, what a game.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I know, right?
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: ;)
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: gg all!
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: gg Russia!
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: gg Russia!
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Turkey is going to ALL HOLD. First person of England or France who attacks me, I throw the solo to the other.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: I have to go to work soon, so I am serious, kill Austria vote draw, anyone touches me, I throw, done and gone.
21 Feb 19 UTC I fought the good fight
21 Feb 19 UTC gg Austria, let's end this now.
21 Feb 19 UTC gotta cycle thru the retreats first.
21 Feb 19 UTC gotta cycle thru the retreats first.
21 Feb 19 UTC All right, that's it
21 Feb 19 UTC I wouldn't have listened to you, Turkey, if I weren't sure if it was you back last year
21 Feb 19 UTC France! damn it, go for the solo!!!!! Are kidding me man? shit!
21 Feb 19 UTC gg all, only one NMR this time! Really nice
21 Feb 19 UTC Excellent game all.
21 Feb 19 UTC what do you mean England?
21 Feb 19 UTC gg all. Kudos to Magnetic: great ally!!
21 Feb 19 UTC going to have to take France out to the wood shed and knock some sens into him...
21 Feb 19 UTC sense
21 Feb 19 UTC You threatened me about moving to Armenia and how you would throw to France. If it weren't you, a player of your caliber, I would've. Your press & ability to survive with an excellent line made it clear to me.
21 Feb 19 UTC Good to see both mag and rj in this game- they work too well together though :'D
21 Feb 19 UTC England, you actually knew it was me, my username exactly? really?
21 Feb 19 UTC I don't think I've ever had to do that much diplomacy
21 Feb 19 UTC I'm surprised Italy didn't fuck us over sooner
21 Feb 19 UTC Press has tells, Tug- I haven't played press with you before, but if mag has, then there might be something in your writing style that gives it away.
21 Feb 19 UTC Well, I had no idea until Fall 1908, but then when you were sending me messages, the pieces all came together. I'm familiar with your press because I've been in some press games with you, and based on the fact that you had an excellent line kind of made it clear to me. Obviously I wasn't sure, but you pick up on press after you've played with them long enough. For example, after I stabbed Russia I realized that Russia was NEFS
21 Feb 19 UTC Tbh I was surprised he didn't hit you hard early
21 Feb 19 UTC Haven't played with rj before though. A pleasure to work with you!
21 Feb 19 UTC well shit, there are so many players here, that's so hard to do, I have to disguise my press better, but in live game, it;s so fast, so little time to think.
21 Feb 19 UTC I know that press has "tells", but it's so hard to hide that stuff. and in a live game, it's even hard to think about it, especially if you have 14 or 15 units to orders without any times.
21 Feb 19 UTC ^rj is literally the man
21 Feb 19 UTC That has always made me a better play, Turkey: I'm ready!!
21 Feb 19 UTC I don't know what my tell is, but I know it exists.

It's not necessarily good or bad to have tells, I didn't change much because I knew it was you, Tugster. I would've probably gone for the draw around now because I need to go to bed
21 Feb 19 UTC yeah me too, nite all, great game!
21 Feb 19 UTC Thanks, Mag. Likewise.
21 Feb 19 UTC i think my biggest tell is that I write too much, too long, too much explaining things! LOL Cannot shut me up!
21 Feb 19 UTC makes my personal tells even more distinct.
