26 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1901: wow, didn't think it would start the same night I joined! GL and HF everyone. Going to sleep now so keeping first messages on the shorter side, sorry about that.
03 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry about. The wait for press all I've come down with something and spent the day sleeping. Expect responses soon
04 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, that's me fucked.

GG all.
04 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Very solid WT you've got there.
13 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry about letting the clock run on the builds phase. I had/have exams all week and wanted to wait as long as possible to start the clock running on the Spring so I'd have time to talk to all of you.
19 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1905: well shoot.
22 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Good morning.
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG Italy
25 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well orchestrated 3 way - gg guys
30 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: gg guys. i'm hoping someone solos.
30 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Expect press from me tonight, in about 8 hours
30 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Still hungover?
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: My draw vote is up. England says his is too. Et tu Austria?
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Noooooo you should fight it out
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Mine wasn't up. It is now. Ergo one of the two of you is lying :P
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: it's England
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I have no solo, I'm more than OK with the 3WD
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: DEATH DEATH DEATH DEATH
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm sure Germany is unbiased :)
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: ░░░░░░░░░░░█████████████
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Well... now I guess I have to decide who is lying huh? My draw vote is up and I have absolutely no reason to lie. Therefore it is either England or Austria lying. Thoughts all?
31 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: well i personally thi-

oh you know
01 Nov 16 UTC My draw is up and I have absolutely no reason to lie. All I see is two people moving towards me :)
01 Nov 16 UTC Well, I thought you were lying to being with. But after the NMR and the fact that Austria put moves in already I think Austria is the one holding out now.
01 Nov 16 UTC Well that and the fact that I told you my draw vote isn't in. :P I mean. That's pretty cut and dry.
01 Nov 16 UTC yeah... it's Austria. England you are honorable in this case.

otherwise you're shit.

but i love you.
01 Nov 16 UTC In all fairness. I did actually put a draw vote in when I said I did. I just took it back down when nothing happened. And haven't put it back up again.
01 Nov 16 UTC Meaning one of France or England really was lying about the draw vote initially.
01 Nov 16 UTC It seems England was lying about the vote initially, but with the NMR he has now put it up
01 Nov 16 UTC I got too many games going to drag this shit out. It was a great game, let's not spoil it :)
01 Nov 16 UTC I'm unimpressed with both of you. A 3 way draws a pretty boring result I find it hard to believe I'm the only one who wants to keep playing to see if I can solo. But it sure looks that way. Fine, you'll get your draw.
01 Nov 16 UTC gg

01 Nov 16 UTC Yeah, good game.
01 Nov 16 UTC I was playing for the solo, I just didn't whine and insult others when I didn't get it :)
01 Nov 16 UTC Damn you Valis you creationist tyrannosaur
01 Nov 16 UTC <3 sorry buddy
01 Nov 16 UTC Last I checked the only person I insulted was France :P
I'm not whining about not getting the solo, I'm whining about the general lack of drive to see this game through, and to push for the solo.
01 Nov 16 UTC Maybe its just because I'm not in very many games, so I really didn't care if things drag out for a long time, and we end with the same result, so long as the conclusion was definitive (stalemate lines and what have you).

But both you and France made it very clear you wanted this over now, and this is a game, so if neither of you were having fun with this anymore, I wasn't going to force you both to continue. Since we play this bad boy to have fun.
01 Nov 16 UTC You could always not draw. It didn't take much for you to throw it up
01 Nov 16 UTC France made it clear he wanted to throw the game if I didn't draw. I considered calling him on that bluff, but in the end decided it wasn't worth the trouble.
01 Nov 16 UTC Good game all. A three way draw is a tame and fairly boring result, but I have three midterms this week and way too much work to put the effort in to avoid getting steamrolled.

The main reason why I avoided any two way proposition is no matter who I decided to side with I would have to do the most work to take centers. As it stands my units in Italy and way too open for a stab while if I pushed south towards Austria the north would have been exposed. That coupled with my unlikely solo chances and England's threat to throw to Austria if I pushed towards him made me decide it wasn't worth the effort.
