~Wed 12 Apr UTC Autumn, 1902: You've never muted someone? Another lie lol. I've read the conversation when we had it, I know what was said. It was just you saying the same thing over and over again.

@England, he's not getting into my head at all. I've said the following multiple times to France:
"I don't know why you keep going on about it. You know my view and I know yours. It's a shame you can't ally everyone but that's what the game is. There's no need to try to insult me, we're supposed to be having fun after all."

I just wish he'd shut up and get on with it.
~Wed 12 Apr UTC Autumn, 1902: I have never muted someone. You're the first. Why don't you take the first step in shutting up? Again, hilarious how you keep wishing other people do stuff, but do the opposite yourself. QED I'd say.
~Wed 12 Apr UTC Autumn, 1902: You've never muted someone... except me. So you don't include that for some reason.

Of course I'm going to reply when you send me long ass messages. It would be rude to ignore them. But you don't even bother replying to what I actually say and just go on ranting about the same thing all the time. As I said, I know your view, you don't need to keep telling me it.

What are you talking about? I haven't done the opposite of what I said.
~Mon 17 Apr UTC Spring, 1903: You should be ashamed of your play France.
~Mon 17 Apr UTC Spring, 1903: Or should I say dummy spitting lack thereof?
~Mon 17 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry about my nmr guys. Thought i filled in my moves. Maybe should have asked for a pause, didn't want to hold it up though. Good to see it didn't change much.


And oh russia: let's count words sent after the game is over. See who played more..
~Mon 17 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: And then'll subtract my global/private rants ;)
~Mon 17 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Indeed. If you're going to NMR that isn't a bad urn to do it.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Ouch.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: I don't think Germany liked the way you crossed him helping France before, Italy.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Poor Italy. Friend to all, but his magnanimity was the end of him.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: I am, incidentally, _so_ down to discuss strategy once this game's over with. I'd like to up my Italy game, and clearly I have made some mistakes.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Meh - your only big mistake I saw was splitting your bet each way on West and East. Picking the moment of a stab is always easier in hindsight.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: So here we are entering the End Game. Austria and Germany dominate the field, with the German doing so by neat timing and only 1 stab, the Austrian extraordinary diplomacy, followed up by 3 stabs in succession.

A 2 way is unlikely at best, so the rest of us need to start placing bets and who to side with:

May the bidding commence!
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Splitting my attentions does seem detrimental, yeah. I've had more success with neutrality in the east and a hard focus on the west. I'm not very amenable to the standard Lepanto, since it leaves one open to exactly the situation that just played out.
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: I think not moving Arm - Smy, s Syr, s Eas Med is a mistake and the A Nap build. For the rest I think you played rather well Italy. The thing is, in Diplomacy, very small mistakes can have huge consequences. Take my spring 1901 for example. Not moving into Burgundy, just one silly order, costs me a good start in the game and I still haven't recovered.

If Austria has stabbed you all Italy, Russia and Turkey, why not team up? ;)
~Wed 19 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, A Nap was very stupid, I realised that before the stab even :P
~Thu 20 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: @ France: That is an option for sure. However, Austria and Germany are remarkably unlikely to opt for a 2 way, and neither is yet close enough for a solo. That can change if one of them attacks the other decisively in the next few phases - but still they are a long way from solo.
That means a tripod remains the most likely outcome. Now Germany and Austria can choose a 3rd between themselves, and that will probably be the least potentially disruptive and threatening, or the 2 of us outsiders could try to convince one or the other to team up with us to roll the rest of the board.

I would of course recommend myself in both scenarios :D
~Thu 20 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia has played this game before, I think
~Thu 20 Apr UTC Autumn, 1903: I think you guys are getting a bit ahead of yourselves. It's not over yet but it really depends who attacks who this year.
