17 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 1902: I apologize for the slow play, but I'm traveling and need to take the full time on moves this weekend.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ouch, that hurt! Lol.

Turkey just clearly went "suicide" and decided to help Austria into not only my centers but also his own. Austria just gained 3, and has 2 more quickies in Cons and Ank.

Since I can't hold two fronts against both Austria and France, I am also going "suicide" now! France, you are welcome to Sweden, St. Pete, Denmark, Kiel, Munich, and Berlin. That gets France to an easy 17 that no one else can stop. I'm sure my remaining units can then help France into Warsaw or Moscow for the win.

Since I clearly won't be around for a draw, it will be my great pleasure (and ever dying mission!) to help France solo now. (Look up my stats. I never resign. You can also look at gameID=110251 where Russia had an easy draw, but was greedy and didn't cooperate with me as Germany, so I SUCCESSFULLY gave the game to France.)

Austria, you had your chance for a draw partner. Now, instead, you will end this game with a defeat, just like me.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: I like your style, sir Russia
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: P.S. I'm not going to whine, complain, use profanity, and cry like a baby like Turkey does when one single move doesn't go his way. I'm just a super practical player, and if I'm not going to be around for the draw, then neither are my former allies.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks (I think)...It's too bad, the game had gotten interesting prior to the suicide by Turkey.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey still looks very much alive to me. Do you all think it possible that what you see is different from what it is? What if Turkey wanted assistance in crushing an opponent he felt wronged him, and realized that an army would be better than a fleet... Arranging a deal with his neighbor to provide him with that army...
And the complaining? Please... France and Russia have been happily gobbling up the territories of a player who didn't even show up to play.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Your logic is sound to refute the suicide assumption (but that is what it looks like). Perhaps we should hear from Turkey.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: I guess it makes no difference in practice... If Turkey wants to turn over all his center, he is free to- I won't complain. Russia appears to be doing the same thing now, so not sure where he thinks he's maintaining the moral high ground.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: I've unmuted Russia because obviously he's up to something stupid.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nope, just more blithering self-justifications for his retarded actions. Re-muted.

As for my handing over Smyrna to Austria, there are more potential reasons than just 'suicide' for this. Perhaps, for instance, I offered him two centres in exchange for his guarentee of protection of the third thusly contributing to my chances of a "survival", or perhaps the intention is to get another unit in there to help push out ARM while Black Sea does something else, and its worth losing the worthless unit in Aegean temporaily to achieve that? Perhaps I wanted to make the bear blow his brains out and get a survival from an impossible situation there? Or perhaps I'm just suiciding - frankly, its nobodies business but mine and those whose business I choose to make it, just like the secret workings behind any other move.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: let's play. and try to have fun.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: I agree with France -- it's a game and the main goal is to have fun! So no crabbiness, please.
France, it will be fun for me to help you solo now, but we'll have to together very carefully. If Austria or Turkey take Moscow or Warsaw then they have the stalemate line covered. I will give you Munich this turn, as Munich is a key center for you to get around Switzerland. You may have to delay taking Denmark/Sweden/ Berlin/ St. Pete, so as to not cause me to lose units to fast. I will need some units in order to hold Warsaw and Moscow. I can also put my units at your disposal to help you attack the others. Consider all my units at your disposal starting NOW! Please message me privately to coordinate the best defense of Warsaw and Moscow, and also the best counterattack options as well.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1905: Feel free to post those messages publicly as well.
02 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1906: ;)
03 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1906: Favorite Star Wars character = Hans SOLO
Fav Italian song = o SOLO mio
Fav part of this game = watching France SOLO

No one can stop us now. (Yes, "us" -- I decided to live vicariously through France in this game! Lol.)

:)
04 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh no austria we had a deal i cant believe you betrayed me oh well guess i have been defeated
07 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Would everyone please get their orders in quickly so we can end this game already. The outcome is obvious.
08 Mar 13 UTC All, I'm am playing for the draw now, with Austria's cooperation and change of heart. I will retake Moscow now (which France cannot stop), thus securing the stalemate line.

However, if Austria makes one single deviation from this cooperation, I immediately throw the game to France (by giving Moscow or Warsaw to France), and I suggest Italy also throw the game to France IF Austria makes one funny move on my side or Italy's side, which would indicate Austria trying to cut us out of a draw.

You can all put your "draw" votes up now.
09 Mar 13 UTC Russia and I have made a suicide pact. Should Austria try any funny business, we will both ensure France's victory. Draw votes, get them up.
09 Mar 13 UTC Suicide pact confirmed. NO funny business! The stalemate line is up and cannot be broken unless Austria chooses to play with fire.
09 Mar 13 UTC Good game everyone. It was a little more stressful that I anticipated, but a nice result and well done all around.
09 Mar 13 UTC Good game all. Definitely stressful and precarious, but super fun!
