1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
06 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1901: Pretty standard openings. Now the real game begins.
09 May 21 UTC Spring, 1903: 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.
10 May 21 UTC Spring, 1903: 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.
24 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Don't quit, England! You have an hour to submit orders!
30 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1909: Total collapse mode activated. I'm glad it's just a simulation.

...or is it?
05 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia may not intrinsically want a solo. He is just obsessed with the idea of eliminating me. So I'm leaving it to you, guys, if you want to help me survive, or not so much. Please, however, remember that my 5 centres, if in the hands of Russia, will inevitably push him towards a solo.
I've sent individual press to all potentially interested in not losing the game.
05 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1911: As i said at the begining i will be happy with 3wd. My allies know about It. Austria stop crying. I have trusted you and you betrayed me. Your decision. You have refused any communication and muted me. And do nothing to regain trust.
07 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: I just have stopped reading your press. But let's have a 'second opinion', because apparently you have built a religion around the idea of me having betrayed you. I'd like to invite all players here, including Turkey, to take a part in a survey. Please look at Spring 1906 and Russia's moves in the South. They were taken right after we had agreed with Russia to demilitarise Anatolia. Now, please choose one of the following options:

1. Russia's moves show hostility.
2. Russia's moves appear to be friendly.
3. Russia's moves are neutral.

If I have even one REASONABLE answer to 2 or 3, I will apologise to you, Russia. Otherwise, please re-evaluate.
07 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Obviously, you, Russia, are invited as well ;-)
07 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1912: My answer does not quite fit any of the 3. it is a composite, but still simple. I think Russia's words and actions show that Russia is telling several of us he wants peace, but that Russia's actions show opportunism and the willingness to grab centers whenever possible, quite possibly from the people he just made a deal with, that is this is possibly the case. In other words, Russia is a Diplomacy player. My only small complaint is that at one point Russia wanted a dmz that was way too dangerous for me. That is simply asking for too much, and it made me very wary. Russia, I am not angry. I have to problem drawing with you, but I still fear you may change your mind and solo. Last remark: Let's all be open to being talked about. Let's not gang up on any single player. Mainly, this has been a great game, thanks everyone.
07 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1912: Yes you are right:) and i try to avoid betray as long is possible.
08 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1912: I'm inclined to make another survey in which I could ask why nobody took part in the previous one.

"We are here to have fun, and not to answer your stupid questions requiring analyses of the moves of other players weeks ago! Shut up and have fun!'
08 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Now this is diplomacy.
10 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1913: Quiet season...
11 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1913: I honestly didn't realise that you enjoyed my prose, Germany.
12 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1913: 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.
14 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: From the begining i said that i want to 3wd. If Germany will take my Norway i declare to risk 2wd with italy.
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: That's fine. But what if he solo?
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: Germany, take Norway, but hurry. It's Tuesday, and on Tuesday, Russia wants a 3wd. It will change on Wednesday, or maybe even late Tuesday. But take Norway.
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: Just a side note: Be careful using personal pronouns in Diplomacy in this format. (he, she, they). It's more cautious to name what country you are talking about, as in, "I tried to make an alliance with France. France has not responded yet. I then approached England, but then France got back to me." Think about putting "he" in there. Country names make things very clear.
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: What if who solo? See what I mean?
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: I reckon Germany referring back to himself has some stylistic and pragmatic reasons ;-)
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: lol
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: Austria This is ONLY a game. I will not talk with you because your private messages are too personal...

Once again i will be happy with draw. I said It from the begining. I believe in Germany and Italy that we will fast finish the game and eliminate Austria.
15 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1914: Russia, mate, your press has become so chaotic that I began disregarding its content and adjusted my messages to your 'style'. Do not forget to put in your profile that you have singlehandedly eliminated a 1500+ player.
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: So, just wondering. What are italies and russias visions of how the next few years turn out?
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: No mercy for traitor like you Germany:)

I give my vote to Italy.
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: But I am not a traitor. I violated no treaty. I declared my intentions before hand. And have been nothing but consistent in word and deed.
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: You took my Norway...so if italy wants to not finish yet i am fully in !

Remember Austria? Austria also betrayed me:)
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: I didnt betray you. We had no formal long standing agreements. All previous agreements were fulfilled. You can not just say that people betrayed you because they did something that displeased you.
16 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1914: The more lies and messages from German the more will to figth with you.

Italy decide please.
17 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1915: Draw submitted from my side. It is all up to you now Italy.
17 Jun 21 UTC Spring, 1915: and up to England ;-)
18 Jun 21 UTC Autumn, 1915: Oops. I can't believe I let that happen. Actually, I can.
21 Jun 21 UTC What is wrong in draw? :)
21 Jun 21 UTC Your shocked?
21 Jun 21 UTC I pushed Draw. Germany has pushed draw. Russia, if you push draw this is over.
21 Jun 21 UTC good game, everyone.
21 Jun 21 UTC To be honest from the begining i wanted to draw with Austria. But we can not find common language and solution for our misunderstandings.

What is interesting in this game i was betrayed by England, Germany, Austria and Germany again (Norway case).:)

In spring 1911 i made the bighest mistake supporting Greece to Bul instead Bul to Greece... and Almost lost the Austria front.

GG
22 Jun 21 UTC GG
22 Jun 21 UTC I never betrayed you. I did things you did not like. These are two separate things, russia.
22 Jun 21 UTC Germany, do not even start! Let's just all admit that we have betrayed Russia, jointly. I am completely convinced that Russia also betrayed Russia. Hell, even Syria betrayed Russia, and that's why it shamefully shines in yellow and not in... I don't know - Russia, what colour are you? Pink it is not, as England was Pink, but they turned green.
22 Jun 21 UTC Taking my Rumunia (Austria) and my (Norway) without permision is something which most of diplomacy players call 'betrayal'.
22 Jun 21 UTC It's not betrayal. Betrayal implies were had a formal alliance and had negotiated terms of non aggression. There was nothing to "betray". You created an alliance in your head that did not exist.
22 Jun 21 UTC And contrary to my own advice, I'd add that you, Russia, jeopardised a true and non-imaginary alliance by moving full force towards my borders when we'd agreed (alliance, hello) to demilitarise. But it's just screaming in the wind, some people will die for their fantasies. Plus, I've lost, so what do I know.
22 Jun 21 UTC if you understand the meaning of Betrayal you will start wining:P
