Game drawn
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: we are kinda using you as a balancing beam, this game is almost certianly going to end in a 3 way draw, if i stab russia its between russia you and austria, if russia stabs me its between me you and austria. if austria stabs me or russia its a 2 way draw
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm confident that I can hold off turkey indefinitely. However Russia will be able to slowly overcome me, in turn by the end, austria won't even matter since Russia will solo on me/england/germany->21 SC.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You cant hold me off indefinitly, that much i can garuntee
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: I mean, I'm gonna be honest as an outsider, it would make most sense for France to be the third wheel in a draw, as Austria wouldn't really be able to help keep any rogue nations in check. That said, France back stabbed me and Austria is a total class act even after I back stabbed him. So I'd much rather see Austria survive than France.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Maybe not, but I like Russia more ... so I'll just defend my north side less, allowing Russia to plow over me and get the solo. He has nothing to worry about, Turkey, you on the other hand have much to worry about. Unless of course you wanted to just draw it.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Come on Italy I wrote that in response to Turkey's message and you just cut me off lol.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: ;) That's my job.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: The proud German diplomats believe we should all come together and draw. If we draw, Germany will throw a party, uh, in Holland for everyone.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: What type of food are we talking here?
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Just Hollandaise sauce. We've been eating straight hollandaise sauce for like 2 years over here.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: What a bleak existence. As I still have Morocco I'll bring some hookahs.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: alright new plan conquer morocco
05 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Smart Turkey! I was going to counter that naval manuever but i couldn't account for that and you forcing. gg.
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Forgot to give my Fleet in Hel a support move order.... D:
I think we could all take a break and should head to Morocco and hang with Italy for a bit xD
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: hey france you up for conveying smyrna to morocco?
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: lol
that would be...really amusing to see
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: if it didn't hurt me i would because yes it would be amusing, if i move a navy into MAO we could go from smy to norway or st peter with some work.
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: :c
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy can't into empire.
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1908: I just wanted to take Ethiopia.
10 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: MOROCCO IS MINE!
10 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: No more spaghetti. Only upsetti.
10 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: this game is cancerous
10 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hey Russia IMA start preparing for convey syria to st Petersburg
10 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: I want to go through NAO and Barents sea
11 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: thats a loooooong way to just go get your butt frozen off in the winter time
11 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Support west med into MAO
11 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Oh that was supposed to go to Austria..... *whistles*
11 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Austria can't support that, do you mean Russia?
11 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: no im just very very tired and have no idea what im saying, clearly
13 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: Shhhhh...clearly nothing is happening and you don't need to worry at all
14 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: wait, can a fleet in constanople convey?
16 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: sry we could draw with you france, if it counts for anything, but i dont really want a 4 way draw and i would feel really bad stabbing austria. Hi there germany. Hows it going.
16 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Sorry everyone - family stuff came up yesterday and I never had a chance to get on to submit my orders >.<
17 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Dude this is literally diplomacy, you need to be able to stab people even though it feels bad. SMH its the point of the game.
17 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: im a fairly new player of the game so i havnt been broken down and transformed into a honorless diplomat yet, give it time
17 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: For the record, when I entered the game, I opened up to just about everyone. Russia offered me a great deal and promise of my defense, and Turkey and Russia seem like good enough players to keep their promises. Diplomacy doesn't have to end with one player winning.

France, you failed to correspond with me in any meaningful way, and I have a feeling it explains why both Russia and Turkey did. Or throw away their alliance for you.
17 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: We western nations were shifty shitbags. I'm glad Austria turned things around after my treachery.
19 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: ITs been nice playing with yall
