26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Gosh I hope that’s it.
26 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Virtual Diplomacy League!
27 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1902: I nominate the “Dish R/A/G” as a nickname for an opening game alliance between Russia, Austria, and Germany.
27 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1902: But will the DishRAG have a FITE on their hands...?

(I’ll see myself out.)
29 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi all. I got some press from Russia and was about to respond to him privately, but I think the response should be public, so here it is:

Russia:

“hi France, it looks like you have found a way to cooperate with England, and I have found a similar way with Germany. However, i would like to stress your are not the enemy for me... regardless that we are on different sides of this conflict, longer term we are allies, i hope you think similarly.”

My response:

Are you kidding? A seven-center Russia in 1902? Already in force on both sides of the stalemate line? Every player who cooperates with you in any way is suicidal.
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Doesn't Russia start on both sides of the stalemate line?
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: If you want to get into semantics, France said that Russia was "in force" on both sides of the stalemate line. So there is a difference.
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Also I have decided that Russia will be the country to conquer turkey. Germany and Austria, you had better plan accordingly.
30 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: That is, of course, your prerogative.
02 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi everyone I’m out camping this weekend so I’m going to let the full turn pass. No need to pause but I may be out of touch tomorrow.
02 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks for letting us know, have fun!
06 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: lol @ simultaneous stab Germany
14 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1906: just fyi I finalized my retreats long time ago
14 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I’m not surprised it’s Germany holding it up
14 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, they might still have a chance to work on some diplomacy :)
16 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
16 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: All quiet on the western (and eastern) front today
16 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Looks like a player will drop
16 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Might be the Austria? Haven’t heard from them
17 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game, Italy!
17 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Pretty interesting I’m gonna keep watching it
28 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I've readied up. Russia I'm afraid it's time you accept defeat so we can move on to the inevitable 4-way draw.
28 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Also fun game everyone. Good press from everyone.
28 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: I laughed out loud, Turkey. Thanks and well played.
29 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1910: We need more action here. How about Austria going for solo?
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Shhh you're not supposed to say that out loud. Although the game is essentially over. My draw vote is cast.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: @Italy, I really thought I had a good solo game ahead of me going into 1906, but when I got dragged into a war in the east, I knew there was no way to get across any of the stalemate lines. At this point, I’d need to capture Munich, Berlin, or Marseilles while taking all the Italian centers and Tunis. The timing just doesn’t work, unfortunately.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Plus, France easily has a credible solo throw threat which I think is keeping England and me in line.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: This is news to me.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well, I'm voting draw during Spring 1911. It's been a good game, folks.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: This is either coasting neatly to a draw, or I am being set up in a big way.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You've been paranoid the entire game, France. Has it been justified? Occasionally. In the current situation? It's very unlikely I'd help Austria. We have very conflicting goals in terms of solo.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You have a point. I always feel like I underperform as France, so I probably have played this one a little tight.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: That said, I have been expecting you and Austria to collaborate to take me apart between you in a rush to the stalemate line for quite a while. (That doesn’t mean I’m suggesting you try it...)
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: France can never solo. I don't believe it.

They frequently get crushed in the end game in a situation such as this.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: That’s what I just said
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Lol
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Ah, France, I meant if either of us attack you, it’s very easy for you to throw the solo to the other player.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: England and I will vote draw during spring 1911. Hopefully France and Austria join as well. If not, we'll know for sure someone is going for the solo.
30 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Also France you can see how greedy Austria was being. Planning a solo. Right up until Turkish soldiers valiantly poured into the breach. Alas the French reinforcements sat idly by.
31 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Good game, Russia!
01 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
03 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: Alright good game folks! I'm planning to draw once Turkey is officially eliminated. Hopefully, we wrap it all up this coming turn.
03 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: Seconded.
03 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: I have my orders locked in and ready. Didn't want you to think I was drawing these last few turns out. I'm a rip the band-aid off type of guy
03 Nov 20 UTC Sorry, that was me. My draw vote is in.
03 Nov 20 UTC Mine as well.
03 Nov 20 UTC Good game.
03 Nov 20 UTC I made one critical error that kept France and I in lockdown, moving my unit in Picardy out. Could have been a serious solo threat
03 Nov 20 UTC Wow I didn't realize France went in to civil disorder!
