28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: Austria I can guarantee you that I have a better ghost rating
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: Russia - you are extremely narrow in your thought process. "13" - had nothing to do with "trust", it had to do with good risk assestement and risk/benefit ratio.
Italy - funny you mention it "guarantee", since I told you before that I just returned after 3y...I added you to the group just based on your comment. Yes, you know how to play. I'm happy for your ghost ranking.
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: That's fine I just picked a number with a general idea behind it. That general idea is that no sensible player would willingly put themselves in a position where you could stab them since you have shown yourself to be completely untrustworthy. The risk/benefit ratio is bad:

*scenario 1: 3 player draw gain 233 diplomacy dollars; high chance of success
*scenario 2: fight for 2 player draw 350(ish) diplomacy dollars; low chance of success

Who would pick scenario 2? Obviously no one.
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: Can we all agree that we think Austria is a douche?
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: Italy, what is your problem?
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: I thought you are ok.
28 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1916: Austria, the question to ask is not what is our problem. If we are all in agreement, then the question is what is *your* problem
29 Sep 17 UTC Last year before the game is drawn hype.
29 Sep 17 UTC This has been utterly unbelievable. I've never seen a player as childish as Austria.
29 Sep 17 UTC Yeah this guy is fucking unbelievable
29 Sep 17 UTC Oh I've see much worse. Their play has been very good. The recent behavior makes sense since it is the only way to get what they want is be obnoxious it makes total sense. It's a long shot but they also loose nothing.
29 Sep 17 UTC Except our affection... and that's worth nothing.
29 Sep 17 UTC I wrote to Italy and repeat here: the goal of the game in not to be liked by other6 players. Russia finaly gets it! I also asked Italy several years ago if he would draw and he replied "if I was in a good mood, I might". England's accusations did not provide foundation for good mood, so I did not draw then. Why dead people care when the game is done I have no idea.
France, you clearly have not seen many players.
29 Sep 17 UTC I once played with an Italy who for the whole game wrote everything in an exaggerated Italian accent. At first it was funny, then annoying and then infuriating (and brilliant) it totally pushed a player into making bad moves. I am reminded of Miyamoto Musashi's psycho out tricks in his duels.

And as so for why dead players care: we're all at the same poker table. Just because we're not in this hand doesn't mean we have no interest in how it finishes.
29 Sep 17 UTC Q I asked in not how, but when. Why do you care when
29 Sep 17 UTC Why do I care when...? These questions have no answers

29 Sep 17 UTC Finally...

Not sure if Austria drew the game or if the mods did. Whoever it was, thank you.
30 Sep 17 UTC I did
I had 1 more year
But it became too boring
30 Sep 17 UTC Finally. Good game folks. Not sure how to assuage my guilt about popping into the easiest 200 points out there in dipland, but at least it was fun?
30 Sep 17 UTC I wouldn't feel any guilt. It was dumb luck but if you haven't had showed up it could have been way worse... or maybe I'd be finishing this game.
