10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I apologize to my fellow players. My moves and messaging were not up to par in this game. Since what is par for me isn't all that impressive (well, some call my messaging nothing short of spam), the result might well have been the same had I played at the top of my game.
10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: No need to apologize Italy. I think you played a really good game, and had some bad luck that just allowed me to grow too fast.

Incidentally, because this game is no longer in doubt, I don't think anonymity is important any longer. My screen name is Balki Bartokomous, but I believe I'm listed on the tournament page as El Conquistador from PlayDiplomacy.

This was my first completed game over on this website. And I have to say that the quality was very good. This particular game suffered from a couple of absentee players, but there were obviously some really strong players here too. You guys seem to have a thriving community and a lot of active and talented folks. Thanks to all of the participants and the organizers, and I hope to see you guys again in the next round.
10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, it isn't quite over yet. They could mount a comeback and draw the game. Though I have to apologize for my play, I was busy when this game started and seriously messed up my early game (which consisted of allying either with Russia or Italy, of which i got neither) and by the time I could do anything, I was pretty much dead.
10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Nah he's done. There's no stopping him from getting three this turn.
10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: It sure would be embarrassing if I miscalculated and ended up losing.
10 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: We can win unless we work as one... That's unlikely to happen.
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: good game I guess
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: All... case in point of Russia and his lies...

He just asked me to hit ready... here is my reply to him.

You can wait... and in the mean time find the lie in the text below that you sent me. Once you find it and let me know where it is I will click "ready".

"That was Italy. (truth!)

I'm honestly not sure I can help you at this point, especially with your destroys. I can't support Munich against Italy's attack. I don't plan to take Holland just yet, but that's about all I can offer."
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Wait, a diplomacy player (and one who was clearly going for a solo at that) lied?
....How surprising.
Please, just ready up and end this misery.
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Actually, that's the other reason not too... I like listening to everyone who didn't see this coming complain. It's really the only enjoyment I'm getting out of this game so I'm trying to milk it for what it is worth.
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Wait, people didn't see this coming?

Actually the only reasons I tried to broker a deal with Russia over Italy was
1. He was more active (though my activity was still shitty)
2. I was expecting you to be prepared for the stab
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Also. It's to, not too.
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: 1) Not sure which deal you are referring 2.
To) Thanks for correcting my grammar. It's late and I just don't care enough to proof read my posts and I'm sure you had a hard time understanding it.
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, you may notice I kind of turn my back to Russia in a failed attempt to attack Italy, that was the "deal" I was referring to. It didn't go so well.
12 Jun 15 UTC Despite the loss I did enjoy the game. Take care everyone.
12 Jun 15 UTC Good lord... how do you lose 4 centers in the final year...
12 Jun 15 UTC Holy shit Italy... You said you agreed to the moves I sent you and you followed none. Had you listened he would be at 17 right now you ass.
12 Jun 15 UTC Again, great job on the solo balki. You deserved it.
12 Jun 15 UTC Thanks England. You are correct that one set of moves would have kept me at 17 this year, but to what end? I'd have certainly crossed 18 in the next year.

In any event, interesting that this game had players who were in the money in all three other finished tournament games. Hopefully those draws will provide enough points to get you guys through.
12 Jun 15 UTC You underestimate my powers Russia... ;)
