05 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi all, gl!
05 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: gl hf
05 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck, everyone!
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: I understand that some of you may still be waiting on press, but might I request that since this is a two day game that we try to click ready as opposed to just clicking save whenever possible?
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Whenever possible, absolutely! For the first year or two, though, press is vitally important to shape the rest of the game... I'd rather not miss out on any.

But I definitely agree that ready should be used whenever possible.
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Here Here
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Says Germany, who still hasn't pressed ready. :P
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Sorry Austria, but we do have different neighbors who reply at different speeds.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Lol, no worries i'm just teasing.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Looks like Russia wants to fight both Austria and Turkey at once. What a boss.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Always open to try something new.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: GameMaster: BobtheKnob was banned: Repeat multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well then, RIP France
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sigh...

When I joined this site way back whenever the hell it was(08), I pretty much knew everyone here and multi's were fairly uncommon. Now? Almost every game I join there is at least one person who has the shadiest looking name and at least one person is banned for being a multi. I even had one game earlier in the month where THREE people out of seven were banned. Another game had someone get banned only for the person that replaced him to be banned as well.

This is just getting ridiculous.

It's a fucking online, free-to-play, nothing to win, diplomacy board game, so why the hell cheat? There is literally nothing to gain from it except Diplo points and even then, you aren't going to catch Split. The dude plays 5 minute games like he stays up for weeks with 10 games running at once while taking ecstasy and snorting coke.
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I just want to play "honest", fun, "relaxing" games of diplomacy and instead I get bombarded by 3 year olds getting put in timeout cause they can't share their toys.
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Welcome to the internet man. People do this shit all the time. Best thing is to play w/ friends, :\
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: True that Turkey!
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: The only problem with that is when your friends don't want to play it... I'm pretty much forced to come to this site to play diplomacy. Maybe advertising private games on the forums has a better chance of getting honest games, but I don't keep up with them much.
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I don't know - it is annoying but multis don't bother me THAT much. Think about this, that kind of man has so little going on in his life that winning in an online game is probably one of the most important things, if not the only good thing that's left for him. Of course - it would be much better if he had just put his life together and don't feel or at least try to win by fair play, but nevertheless, I only feel pitty for him.
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Editing long messages on the phone is HARD
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Wait... If he was banned for multi, doesn't that mean there should have been two nations CD? Do we have a criminal among us?
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Perhaps, but he could have multid in other games, and here he had only one account
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ahhhhhhh
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: You know - unless Germany want to tell us something : D
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I always wondered whether a guy doing multi writes to himself to make it look legit
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: hahaha true
09 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hear hear Germany and Russia :-(

What shall we do now then? Hope someone new joins or just cancel/draw and start over?
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I say we hope someone new joins, otherwise it might be fairer to start over- France remaining empty would give us and Germany an unfair advantage over the rest.
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Germany is most likely not going to want to draw, and he shouldn't have to. DC seem to be just another part of the game at this point, and If worst comes to worst, we will simply have to band against him.
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: ^True that. The game is unbalanced right from the start and we bring back the balance by adapting our strategies. Now we just have to take into account that England, Germany and Italy have just a little bit more easy on one border an that's it. Of course if wo do chose to draw I won't stay against though
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: If you want to draw or cancel then vote.
11 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: I don't want to finish, but if you guys want I can cancel. No draw though.
11 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Why would you rather Cancel, that makes no sense. Everyone gets 58 points back for a draw instead of 50 points for a cancel.
11 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: I'm not after the points, I'm after the ratio.
11 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: That's just 8 points, it's like nothing.
12 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: What is wrong with France?
13 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Her ser?
14 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: OMFG, why the hell this France even join? : O
16 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: The title is specifically directed towards France at this point...
16 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: And maybe Turkey
16 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: haha true
19 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Thank god Turkey and France don't have moves. Maybe we can get this game moving again!
19 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: hello
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Awww....
01 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Agreements have been made I see.
02 Apr 15 UTC Gg all.
02 Apr 15 UTC Good game everyone.
