18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: It is very difficult to stay positive when playing a game like this, where half of you can't speak English properly and the other half of you are either bent on my destruction or insist on messing me up in the smallest, most annoying ways possible for absolutely no discernible reason whatsoever.

Hey France! Listen up! If you move to Navarra, I will give you Portugal! Get it yet?

Navarra! Not Mid-Atlantic! NAVARRA!

It's like talking to a brick wall.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Hopefully he gets it right this time, folks. Third time lucky, right?
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: It's not just France though. I think that Poland, Spain, Ukraine and Egypt are the only sensible people on this map. None of them though are any help to me, for various reasons.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Lol. Thanks :-)
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Germany has attacked every single one of his neighbors. he'll be dead within two years, tops. He also screwed over Poland even though it gained Germany nothing at all to do so.

Russia refuses to build any armies to defend his completely vacant homeland from the inevitable Ukrainian stab. That will be glorious to watch go down at least.

Italy should have seen what was happening to Spain and Turkey and known that it was up to him to stop Egypt from getting as strong as he is. He just gave Naples away.

Turkey is alright too, he just got hit bad by a nasty early alliance.

France keeps flip-flopping back and forth between Spain and myself with no goal in mind. Spain cannot give you London, but I can can give you Portugal.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Go on Russia, take my home centers! You've won! You beat me! And it only took you leaving your own homeland completely defenseless to do it!
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: If you're so great at this why are you about to get defeated ?
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: I believe that England is the problem and has to be stopped
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: It's amazing how much better I feel after a good rant. But seriously, it seems like no one is looking at the bigger picture at all and it's driving me up the wall.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: As a part of the international society I believe we should have a collective attack on England as it has ruined Europe
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Please, someone work with me, I just trying to help.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Says the German who's currently in Venice for some reason.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: I'll work with you against the UK
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: Attacking someone who annoyed you (got grumpy in global chat) instead of someone who threatens you strategically is another of these mistakes that make no sense.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: I think that we'll see more alliances formed against England
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: If you want to play a game of 'let's get revenge on whoever wronged me this turn', then go ahead and eliminate me, whatever. If you actually want to play the game I love, a game of delicate checks and balances, a beautifully simple and elegant experiment in conflict of interest and negotiation, then let me know. I am, and always have been, actively looking for for someone to be useful and loyal to.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: oh god this was hilarious to read, brit.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: nice rant there
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: I'm in better shape than I thought! I didn't realize how terrible you all are except for England, and he's kinda far away.
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1996: so proud, that i got called all right
