22 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1901: hi and gl all
22 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1901: greetings to everyone!
25 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello all. I'm sorry for being late. The game started earlier than I expected. will talk to all of you after this turn.
25 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1901: that was close^^ you got us worried for a second
19 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: lol this game is cursed
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: There have been so many NMR's I would recommend a draw.
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: This game isnt cursed, this game has become a bad joke and a boring waste of time ...

I am not in the position to ask for a draw or a cancel, but IF we do draw or cancel, I definitely prefer to cancel. Because in my opinion a draw is something you fight for if a solo is no longer possible
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I vote for cancel since the game actually went down the drain but I also vote draw since it is no chance or luck that some of us got that big they are now
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I don't really want to cancel or draw. Germany was basically trapped anyway. Who knows why he quit. I don't play this game very much, and really don't like the idea of wasting 2 or 3 weeks of my time to start a new game just because someone else quit. I say we play on.
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Just join another game England. Dont refuse to draw like a jerk. Or say that 'its Germanys fault for ruining things''.. Blah Blah. This is basic Diplomacy etiquette.
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: We vote on things for a reason, Italy. You can kiss my ass for calling me a jerk.
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I totally understand that you don't want to draw or cancel when you are in a leading position. But honestly, if you manage to get the solo victory, would it feel like a well deserved victory to you in a game with that many NMRs and 2 CDs?
You say you dont want the last 3 weeks to have been a waste of time - continuing the game now will only change the 3 weeks into 4, 5, or more weeks. But this game is ruined anyway, and therefore also a waste of time
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Look, I may well draw the game. However it's my right not to.
France- Germany's cd hurt me the most since he was my ally, and I had the same dominant position on him before he left. I needed him to fight off Austria which kept me in a good position. Now I have to scramble to claim Den are maybe Bel or Hol, so I don't want to hear that if I win the game, it wouldn't have been well-deserved.
What was well-deserved is my current position in the game.
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: It's always easy to jump on the "etiquette" bandwagon when you've played the game as shittily as Italy did. Ha, shittily Italy, I like that.
03 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I do not say you don't deserve the position you are in. I say the game has become a waste of time when Russia CDed and then Germany and Austria missed a phase, and then germany CDed (even thouh his profile showed logins, he abandonned this game). An active Germany could maybe have been convinced to stab you (me for once, I would have suported him in order to survive the game), while your strong position against him when he CDed imballances the coming phases in your favor compared to an active germany who could have faught Austria and/or you (at least for a while) and would have negociated agreememts ...
Again, I am not in position to ask for a draw and do not say I deserve a place in a draw, because this was definitely not a good performance from my side, but I do say this game is ruined by the fact of 2 CDs and multiple NMRs.
Imo a cancel would be the best solution here
04 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm ok with a draw or a cancel, but I haven't played the most stellar game either.
06 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Ho Lee Shit! Welcome Newcomer
15 Mar 14 UTC Looks like we are about to see the thrid CD of this game ... I stopped counting NMRs ...
15 Mar 14 UTC I see even 2-3. This is a bit sad.
17 Mar 14 UTC I'll vote draw/cancel after Germany cd's
17 Mar 14 UTC I'll vote draw
18 Mar 14 UTC germany is out, lets draw
18 Mar 14 UTC While I would like to say "good game", it wasn't at all. It's unfortunate that the game ran aground because I had such a strong opening position. I'm disappointed to draw this game, and to see so many quit, especially one of the top 10 ranked players. Thank you Italy for the lesson in etiquette. Well played, Austria. Props go out to France for remaining active.
18 Mar 14 UTC I have to agree, not the best game there ever was. Nonetheless at least some of us tried their best. I wish you all (more) luck in finding better games in the future.
