28 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [South-Africa]:Wow
28 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [Russia]:Excellent. Good for you, anyway, South Africa, if no one takes the position.
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [South-Africa]:I hoped for a game without drop outs
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:could we pause until the 31st? i'm going camping and wont have internet access
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:why would you start a game when you knew you wouldnt be able to play for the first three days
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [Russia]:It's alright, China's generally doomed anyway. Possibly the worst positioning on the map, next to Libya.
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:thats the thing, i didnt know about this -_-
29 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [India]:I too voted pause, but if ALL the players don't vote pause, the game will go, obviously, in 4 hours, sorry for you China.....
31 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: [China]:could have been worse...
04 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Near-East]:India is so mad.
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Russia]:They should have seen it coming. I mean, no matter how close you're working with someone, you DON'T leave your back open like that.
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:Near East is not only insulting in the global but also a trahitor in the starting phase of the game: I invite ALL the players not to trust in him because his words have no value and in this manner he shows also to be a very inexpert player, thinking that is good to show all over the world that he is a no-confiable ally, from the starting of a game!!!!!!
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:Russia, at the starting of a complex game with so many anonymous players everybofy need to have a real alliance and to trust in the ally; only the poor and foolish gang-members try to have many enemies and to show their dark attitude from the beginning, so it's not an error to leave the back open...., it's an error to exploit this little advantage in the starting phase, when everybody can stop forever to trust in the author of a trahison.....ahahahah!
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [South-Africa]:Wait, in a game of Diplomacy you are complaining players betraying you? Excuse me, Sir, but that is what the game is all about.
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:no sir, you don't understand or I'm not able to explain....
betrahing is normal in Diplomacy; betraying in the first turns is a gang.style act, expecially in a game with so many anonymous players! do you understand?
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:the first turns need to build alliances, to share points, to reinforce himself without be obliged to think that the "ally" is betraying you from the starting...! if you act in a different manner you simply show to all the other players that you are not confiable and in such a game with so many players you can damnage your "ally" but you will be destroyed by the other ones, simply refusing any pact with you. do you understand, now, sir? I hope yes......
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:consequently, betraying in the starting phase is a simple gang-style act, without any sense and logic, a little gangster "stratehy": no less and no more.....

of couirse it is completely different if A has a secret pact with B against C from the starting and one or two of them create a false "pact" with C to attack it better: this is strategy (and loyalty between A and B....), the gang-style betraying in the starting remains olny...gang-style without future....
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:course*
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:strategy*
05 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Russia]:Expecting an ally not to betray you when the opportunity so readily presents itself is incredibly naive. It's ok to trust your ally, but you need to temper that with caution. Otherwise, you're probably going to be backstabbed. That's the game. If you don't like it, don't play.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Near-East]:I'd prefer to cripple a potential threat from the outset. But hey, I'm just a trahtor
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [India]:yes, Near East, you're only a trahitor because you've built many fake messages to me, many false messages to me and now I post here the exchange of messages to show to all the other players what kind of so called "player" are you:
------------------------------------
Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Hey india, just extending lines of communication in case you had any desire for an alliance. Let me know what you think.
Tue 30 Jul Autumn, 2000: [You]:I agree, but in this case please don't move moreb to east...and let me afghanistan: wer need to cooperate against Western Russia.....
~Tue 30 Jul Autumn, 2000: [Near-East]:Yeah, I'm going to armenia with my eastern army. No worries.
Tue 30 Jul Autumn, 2000: [You]:ok, pay attention to Libya: Kenia is not playing so Libya and SAfr can grow up fast....!!!!
~Thu 1 Aug Spring, 2001: [Near-East]:Alright, I''ll be moving my iraqi fleet into the arabian sea, and armenia into iran, but that's so I can convoy the army to somalia and hit libya from the south
-----------------------------------------

so that nobody will trust in you in this game, my dear........ perhaps a part your "lawyer" Russia that is defending your acting....

ehi, all, pay attention to these 2 "players", ok?
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Near-East]:Haha, so mad.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:SO mad.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:What, is this his first game or something?
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [India]:poor insulting gang-members.....I played board version of Diplomacy before the starting of the online one...poor insulting gang-members.....
it's interesting that only you 2 (2?....or only 1 multiaccountimg....? mmmmmmh....) are reacting saying that I'm mad....

don't worry...there are so many other playersc that now know perfectly what the gang-members Near East and Russia think and what Near East has done....and I'm interested only to inform them, the real players, of your durty acting...ahahahah!
bye bye.....I want to see who will trust in you now....!
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Quebec]:I think the rest of us are just sitting back and enjoying the show.. buttered popcorn and all. This game IS about backstabbing.. get over it
08 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:"Poor insulting gang members"? What does that even mean? Are you insinuating that Near-East and I are in a gang together? Or are we the same person? I'm very confused here. Obviously, if two people agree on how the game is played, then they MUST be cheating. You know what, stick the the board game. You're obviously not cut out to play online with the big kids.

24 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Quebec]:Watch out for Argentina... he's a gang member and can't be trusted! ;)
24 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2014: [South-Africa]:we need three more players for a classical europe game. deadline's in 2 and a half hour. gameID=126552
