Classic, Anonymous players, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game won by Arch-Duke (100 D)
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Where is everyone from? I'm in California.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: From Australia, but I live in the Netherlands.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm based just outside London handy the random dice roll gave me my home country.
A point I would like to raise I started watching Matts Videos to become a better DM yet thanks to his last video instead of preparing for my session tomorrow if been thinking about this.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Same. I need to get to righting.
I am from Texas.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Washington DC
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I really should be worried my players got Nozuls marvellous pigments last week and they have spent a week thinking about how to break the game with them
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm from Connecticut. I have a session to run Friday that I should probably start prepping for at some point
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I've got a flintlock-era pathfinder game set in Varisia. The PCs are outlaws, on the run, and are unintentionally invoking pretty much all of the western tropes that they can. They're currently helping some helpless hippy peasants start a new commune beyond the reach of the law. If they're interested, they'll be able to develop this settlement into a stronghold, grow it, and eventually get to essentially playing Diplomacy on the regional level. I'll follow Matt's cue and have random friends control the other regional powers. It's early days, but I'm looking forward to it.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Living in Texas but I used to live in DC. I've watched a couple videos of Matt's but I played Diplomacy off and on for a couple years. If you guys like DnD, you should listen to the Glass Cannon Podcast. I'm a big fan.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Wow, a very international group. Nice.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: I am confused.
How was England able to move their unit from York to Brest?
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Nvm, just found that you can convoy with multiple ships. my bad.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: It is with a heavy heart that I announce England is again at War with France
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: :(
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: As pleased as we are to have Belgium unopposed, our Holland fleet wasted an awfully large number of shells supporting the manoeuvre :\
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_of_Belgium#/media/File:Remember_Belgium.jpg
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hot off the press in America, I apologize for the rated R content
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Those American pigs need to mind there own business.

18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Aggression in the Low Countries, seizing of the Balkans. And now Russia has just been informed to consider herself at war with the alliance of Germany, Austria, and Turkey. I ask that the remaining four of us can come together to smash these Axis powers. For if we delay, they will raise new armies out of the ashes of our cities and become unstoppable.

Hopefully, we can consider the army in Brest the BEF and turn a new page.
18 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Lies and propaganda. The Belgians welcomed the German Heer as saviours, securing them in these troubled times. The Central Alliance merely consolidated the traditionally Austro-Hungarian and Turkish peoples of the Balkan Peninsular, whilst popularly rejecting unwelcome Russian irridentism in Rumania. It is the Russian who violates Germany, charging into Silesia, raping and pillaging all in sight.

The Kaiser calls on all Europeans, and our friends in Turkey too, to throw back the Russisch horde.
21 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry. Worked 16 hours yesterday. Missed the phase
21 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Newsflash: differing railway-gauges in the patchwork Austro-Hungarian Empire plunge troop deployments into chaos! Serbian nationalists throw off Austrian invaders only to be occupied by the Turks. General Aleksei Brusilov leads breakthrough Russian victories in Bohemia and Galicia. Germany occupies Burgundy, whilst clashing against Russian Expeditionary Forces in Denmark. Britain takes Norway and wages war against the French in the Mid-Atlantic. Italian General Luigi Cadorna the first battle of the Isonzo River, siezing Tyrolia.
22 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The fall of Paris, 1902, a case study in Machiavelli's advice against the use of foreign auxilliaries:

23 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: An out of character message, sorry guys if it seems like I am slowing down the game by not ready-ing my orders. A 1 day phase is actually pretty short for me, in-fact the only other game I am playing currently has a length of 10 days.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: No worries, Russia.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well it looks like Turkey is CDing. Normally I'm okay with CDs occurring and continuing the game, but both cases of missed turns have been in my favor at critical points. The first broke a strong alliance and the second has handed me SCs in the corner of the map.

I will place a draw vote and focus on eliminating Turkey from the game. I will support hold Austria so he can stay in the game and will cease fighting with Germany. I ask that you all do not wipe France as they have been an active participant in the game.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: If you all disagree, please let me know.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: What does CD mean??
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Civil Disorder, it occurs if a player misses consecutive turns and new player can take over the nation at that point. But it is hard to recover from especially if it happens early in the game where a player missing turns can lead to a runaway scenario.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turkey did miss the last phase, right? Im just looking at the time and it isn't the same.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: They placed orders it seems according to the order log anyways
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, I guess he logged in just to place the disband order. I did not check the game from the end of last phase until now.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well if he misses this phase, the offer still stands.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I tend to think of civil disorder as just part and parcel of online play. It happens often, and there's not much to be done about it. Certainly don't blame you for benefiting from it. In my head, I handwave it as inconvenient political incidents which have far reaching ramifications for the balance of power in Europe.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: OOC I think we should carry on regardless.
25 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Very well.
30 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hello all, new France here. What have I inherited?
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Clearly, you've *donald trump voice* inherited a mess.
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: As Trump is probably used to saying now, "Da!"
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Clearly, you've *donald trump voice* inherited a mess.
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: sorry about the double post
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: This is a diplomatic slight that cannot be forgiven, for this, France and all of her two armies are now set to destroy Turkey
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Come get some, France
01 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1905: My single naval ship will destroy you, and your people
06 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's all folks.
19 Aug 17 UTC It is with great regret that I declare the war won for Germany. It was truly my heart's desire and sworn path to end the nationalist bickering of Europe once and for all with an shared Anglo-German co-prosperity sphere. I even wanted to unite the houses of Hohenzollern and Saxe-Coburg Gotha, to realise Charlemagne's noble vision of a united Europe. But short-sighted, lesser men could not tolerate such lofty goals. Ludendorff and Hindenburg are in charge now. They say I am to remain Kaiser, but that they've taken command of the military "for the good of Germany."

We were so close. Now, I fear, Europe is doomed to yet more wars of revenge and reinstatement. This brutal peace will not be tolerated for long. Germany cannot rule the world alone. This war may be ending, but mark my words, an even greater war looms ahead. Europe, I have failed you.
19 Aug 17 UTC France will rise again! Viva la France!
19 Aug 17 UTC History is full of imperialist tyrants who have usurped the causes of peace, stability, or even democracy to rationalize their quest for power. Et tu, Germany?
Fun game, though. Thanks.
20 Aug 17 UTC You should have let me make a grand comeback
