14 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh cool, welcome to your first game! If you need any help with the rules or specific scenarios (If I have this unit support there, and that happens, what's the result?) let us know. I promise to give completely unbiased answers as long as they don't hurt me :)
14 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1901: lol....;)
sarcasm clearly did not translate.

I've played many games.
@Germany and France I'll await your moves and see who is willing to play nice.
14 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: wow apparently no one..
Interesting moves on russia's part.
14 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: We all said he should move north -- looks like he's good at his word. As promised, Russia, I'll support-hold Rumania if you want. No offense Turkey, but Russia's offer has been better thusfar.
14 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy Perhaps an alliance against france? since you are going that direction/
14 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'd like to hear what France has to say. He is yet to say anything on the message board but you seem true to your word and a very good ally. I'll move out of Venice this turn as a sign of good will. Let's keep Venice, Trieste, and Tyrolia demilitarized unless requested.
14 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: that was directed towards austria btw.
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Glad to hear it Italy. Best of luck in Iberia :)
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Russia is not wanting to anger anyone...Unless he is angered first. So Turkey leave the Black Sea.Now. Austria, be my ally. Dont go to warsaw. I trust you. I moved north so you move...anywhere but into my country. Germany....Stay in Germany. Italy..Dont kill france. France...Kill England. England....Die.
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Great message...
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: En lieu of France's lack of communication I accept fully accept your proposal Austria. I'll move my army out of venice now and hopefully you'll keep yours out of trieste. along with that, we'll have tyrolia as de-militarized and I hope we can agree that any movement into tyrolia by anyone will be followed by mutual defense (ex: if germany moves in we both get him out of there).
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Russia! I told you I was going to Bla S. And now you have finalized your move without talking to me. I will stay there. I could try for Greece or what do you think?
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Poor form, Italy. This is global-chat, where everyone immediately sees your treachery. Congrats on your extra build, but I'm saddened by your loss of potential allies.

France, I'd be glad to assist you against this Italian traitor.
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Don't take it personally. You left it open after one move without feeling everything out. Maybe you should've been more cautious at the onset of the game. Hopefully you can get over it and we can still have a positive relationship. Trieste is too much of a threat against the Italian soil and I don't plan on moving any further against you if we can arrange something
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Trieste is hardly a threat to you -- if anything, Venice is too much of a threat: one of your armies in Trieste threatens every single SC I own. I simply can't allow you to stay there. Back out and I will reclaim my home SC, and we'll be fine. Otherwise we won't be --you don't go making friends by making enemies, simple as that.
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moreover: "You left it open after one move without feeling everything out." No. I left it open after an assurance from you that we had a peaceful arrangement. If that's how you see all of your negotiations, I feel sorry for anyone else who foolishly decides to call you a friend.
15 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Austria, what you don't understand is this: 1) It wasn't wise of you to leave open a territory after on the first move, 2) Italy is always subjected to France or Austria's will and by starting strong it seems to be the case that I won't have to as of now. It was a smart decision and anyone else in my position would've done the same.

That being said, France: because you never answered me I assumed we didn't have peace. But, if you wish, I'm willing to start negotiations. Austria, if you want peace, you can have it but I will not move out of Trieste
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Anyone would have done the same? Nonsense -- Several moves this game alone prove that. You had a peace offer and you betrayed it first-round. If this were a private-messaging game, you could probably have gotten away with it, but this is public, so everyone can see how casually you disregard alliances. And again -- I'm not willing to be your ally-at-gunpoint. You don't get to take my home centers then ask me to be friends while you occupy them. "Anyone else in my position would do the same."
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Wow I forgot how annoying global chat is...
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: So, this is how its gonna go down. Turkey, your my ally. Austria, your my ally. Lets us three work together and move west! Destroy everyone and us three draw? Deal?
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Quoting Italy earlier..."I'll move out of Venice this turn as a sign of good will. Let's keep Venice, Trieste, and Tyrolia demilitarized unless requested." HA!!! Well so much for that shit. What a great lie. Hint..Austria. Might wanna kill him now.
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Russia: I'd love to ally with you and Turkey.
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Or me and you can just take over Turkey together? Because you can handle yourself agianst Italy. So why not gain some easy centers. Attack Turkey with me.
16 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1902: And Italy. Dont invade Austria anymore so we can take out Turkey.
16 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Turkey, you've got my support to the Ionian if you want it. I think the three of us (you/me/Turkey) can work well together.
16 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Turkey, I can support you into Greece if you'd like
16 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Italy, Yes support Bulgaria to Greece if you like.
16 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Support me ot Bulgaria from Rumania, Austria.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Greece: I can support you into Greece from the Aegean
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: No from Bulgaria
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: I will gladly support you from Aegean. That's the offer
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: You're better off working with Russia and I, Turkey -- Italy will have it his way or not at all.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: I Do not think that Russia is interested in working with me.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: England with my help you can take Denmark... I'll help you if u leave the barents sea
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: England! Norway is yours if you want (without help from anyone)...
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Turkey shut up.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia! This is a game of treason and backstabbing, but there is no need to be rude.
By the way, this is not a very interesting game, as both England and France are inactive.
A Draw? Or shall we continue?
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: aww man... the weekend kills my diplomacy games...
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Happened to me, too.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: let's you and me work something out, England. I'll support SKA to Sweden so you can support yourself to Norway, if you use North Sea to boost me into Belgium.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: It's a low-point game, I'd be fine with cancelling rather than drawing.
17 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Germany. Lets make this work. We can worry about what to do with france if it works out.
18 Dec 12 UTC ska to nor
18 Dec 12 UTC Nor or Swe?
18 Dec 12 UTC Moving to Norway. attack Sweden
18 Dec 12 UTC Turkey. You look to be making good advances. With luck perhaps we can meet in moscow?
18 Dec 12 UTC Are we going to cancel?
18 Dec 12 UTC I suggest that we who wish to cancel gang up on those who do not.
18 Dec 12 UTC England, please support Holland to Belgium.
