02 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello everybody. I hope we'll have a great game :) Good luck to all.
06 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: GameMaster: flattman has taken over France.
07 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1902: Wow. England has certainly made up his mind quickly.
11 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1902: GameMaster: she670 has taken over Russia.
12 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Austria has a navy now?
13 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1903: And one neighbor who made several poor decisions, and two neighbors who are in CD! He'll win if we don't work together to stop him.
13 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1903: No neighbor of Austria is in CD. Turkey just hasn't been doing much of anything lately, and Russia has been taken over from CD.
13 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1903: Effectively, until this turn, they have been.
15 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: diegobarcos has taken over Turkey.
15 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hello all.
15 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Finally somebody takes over Turkey!
17 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: shiondev has taken over Russia.
21 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: GameMaster: melihbek94 has taken over Russia.
21 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: wasup
23 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm not going into CD, guys. Just FYI :)
25 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1905: I was too busy enjoying my pizza and looking at fancy architecture to notice the rest of Europe was being led by scheming tyrannical dictators. :/
25 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1905: *and pasta
26 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: nevergone has taken over Russia.
26 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: why do people keep taking over russia and going CD without making any moves?
26 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Someone stacking the pot? I smell a conspiracy.
29 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: At some point it would be nice if you guys realized that Austria has 11 centers, with more coming from Germany, and stopped squabbling, and took him down.
29 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1906: Someone bitching over being eliminated? I smell a bad loser ;)
29 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1906: I have to agree with Austria on that one.

patpat. It's okay. We all have to play Italy once in awhile!
31 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I wonder if Austria is attacking me. HM.
02 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: Speaking from a corpse's perspective, while the CD's in this game were disastrous for Italy and very beneficial to Austria, I also botched diplomacy and tactics. I'm confused as to why Turkey insisted on suicide, though. :P Maybe Germany too. *cough*
02 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: A three-way blue-brown-yellow alliance is still the only was to stop Austria.
02 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: *way
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I can't say it looks like I've insisted on suicide given my orders. And if I WERE an Austrian multi-account, I probably would have given Munich to the Red Armies and not to the blue beeyotches.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I feel 100% confident in saying that Germany, Turkey and Austria are separate players. I still dont understand the various Russias we've had, though.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm rather puzzled by the Russian take-overs as well; France and I actually discussed this a while ago. I think the Italian insinuation that I'm multiaccounting (that's what it is, isn't it?) is rather lame, to be honest. I can understand the frustration of being eliminated (for what it's worth you've done way better than I ever do when playing Italy) but I really wish you would take it as a man instead of accusing me of cheating. I find it a bit pathetic, really.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: As far as I can see, you have only yourself to blame for your defeat: you threw away your alliance with me over a trifle and from the looks of it you subsequently attempted to stab your only other ally (Turkey) over a single SC (Bulgaria). I may not be a diplomacy oracle, but that both dispositions seem more than a little short-sighted to me, and in my humble opinion they are the main reasons for your exit from the game. That being said, I respect you for surviving this long, and I wish you good luck in your future diplomacy games.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: Austria, I didn't say that you were multiaccounting, and I didn't think you were. I just pointed out the truth, which is that the CD's benefited you and did not benefit me.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I didn't throw away my alliance with you- you invaded my home centers. :P I was counting on your support to Bulgaria, which you didn't need to give because Russia stopped making moves after he threatened you on the first spring turn.

The move to Bulgaria was a misorder, which is why I was assisting Turkey with my other moves before that, and on that turn. At that point, however, Turkey was already attacking me and moving away from you.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: Austria, if I had been in your position, I would have done the exact same thing to Italy! :P
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm insulted by your saying I'm not "taking my defeat like a man", and "being pathetic". I'm just giving my opinion on how the other countries can prevent a win by you.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: Looking through my/other people's comments, I see where there could have been a misunderstanding: when I said "suicides", I meant that I thought Turkey and Germany made moves detrimental to their own interests, not that I thought they were under the thumbn of Austria.

Good luck to all of you in your future games too.
03 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: Concerning our in-game conflict: Interesting perspective. I beg to differ, but you have the right to your own point of view, of course. Let's just agree to disagree, shall we? ;)

Concerning multiaccounting: all right, perhaps you didn't accuse me of multiaccounting after all, in that case I stand corrected.

Thanks and take care.
08 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Pollyvoo Francy?
10 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game. Bye all.
10 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thanks for a good game and a good effort. The best of luck in your future games.
