13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: England, lets move all out against Germany
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: France, I was just about to propose the same. Burgundy is critical for you and moving out of it would be crazy. I totally forgot this game had public messaging... I'm moving all out against Germany in the north and my English Channel fleet is just going to be holding there. I can lend you support into Belgium if you want it?
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Let me know how I can help.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Holland will support Belgium, so there is no point to attack it. In spring we are better positioned.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Alright, I'll hold off until then. Let me know if I can assist anywhere else this turn.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Come on fra eng ger! The world is seeking peace... What would you gain from a bloody war? Let s be friends, hug each other and pray for eternal peace. From now on Turkey will focus on education and art...
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: A French and English partnership never works out. And attacking your territory? The only things Burgandy couldve done that turn were move to Ruhr or defend Belgium, both of which were bad for me. If you want to use that as a reason to team up for a few years, be my guest, but it's hardly a good one
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: French and English partnerships always work out. Ever heard of WWII? :P

And Turkey, I'll be your friend too. Hugs and peace and education and art sound good to me.
14 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Hello again my dear English friend! Can you support me from Bur to Belg?
14 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Hey turkey, how about we have some peace while I go help Germany out with this bully France
14 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Sry Italy, I did not know that you will move to east.
14 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Italy you have the best cuisine here, deliver me from this baguette
14 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: France, support from Bur to Belg is all set!
15 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: England, how you gonna do me like that? I could've bounced you out of Sweden in 1902, but I retreated to let you have it.
15 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Eng s eyeing st peters... :D
16 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Hi Ger, Are you not pressing ready just to annoy Fra and Eng? :)
16 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Nah, I just have very limited time as of late and need to make sure the rounds go to full usually! Sorry for the delays
16 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: With his dying breath, AH says - watch out for the Eng Fra coop, it may be the death of you all.
18 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey France, just FYI: I have Eng Chan set to support hold Bel.
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Turkey, retreat from Black Sea and I'll stop attacking Rumania. By forcing me to fight over Rum/Sevast, you're throwing the game to England.
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Retreat from what? U serious?
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah, I am. You may not have noticed, but I supported Black Sea for several rounds in the hopes that youd take that as a friendly overture. If you wanna waste your time on Sevast, though, be my guest.
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I mean it looks like it's England's game either way with France choosing to scrap with me :D
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: @Germany- you invaded France, took Paris, and are probably going to retreat into Brest. How does that translate to France "choosing to scrap" with you??
20 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I mean of course I'm retreating to Brest! I had to answer aggression with Aggression, just means you get to clean house and sweep Russia unopposed
23 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: New France here
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey russia, you won’t have to worry about me taking Vienna. I’m going for turkey since he attacked me in Ionian earlier
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I didnt attack you, I just went fishing :)
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: And craved some pizza napolitana
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: You are welcome for some baclava :D
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: You attacked me in Naples even when I asked you for peace
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey New France. I'll continue to support hold Belgium unless I can help elsewhere.
23 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks
29 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: France, sooner or later, england will go for a solo. And I would not blame him. You are wide open :)
31 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: You're not leaving me much choice here, Turkey.
31 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: What do you mean?
31 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Happy new year everyone!! Best wishes
31 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: By attacking Budapest, you're forcing me to abandon Warsaw and hand it to England. Your short-term gain is helping England to go solo.
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: It s ok
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah I'm sure it's fine!
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: So, you all basically blame england expension on me? I am not your ally, had no alliances, backstabbed nobody, and owe you nothing... what if I am ok with England winning it? If you did not make it, blame nobody but you...
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: "What if I'm okay with losing?"
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: lol, if you aren't going to make alliances, you've missed the point of Diplomacy entirely. Also, there's no second place for solo wins. If you don't force a draw, you lose like everyone else.
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Like me!
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: 100% on Turkey's side in this discussion. I haven't seen Russia or Germany make a single attempt to make an alliance in this game. Original France and I made an alliance early on and no one else even attempted to talk to their neighbors to stop us. Turkey is further away from me than anyone else. Russia boxed Turkey in and then complained when Turkey attacked him as Russia was crumbling. I didn't see any effort on Russia's or Germany's part to create an alliance to stop the early England/France alliance.
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: See Spring 1903. Turkey was not boxed in, I had never attacked, but Turkey still decided to go after Sevastopol.

I'm not mad about that. Stabbing happens. It's refusing to read the board to see where the game is headed that baffles me.
01 Jan 18 UTC Spring, 1908: That s not stabbing, that is playing the game... You were never my ALLY to call it stabbing... How am I supposed to expand if I dont attack anybody?
Get over it seriously or this game is not for you... seriously
01 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: You are Russia... if you speak about reading the game... why did not you ally with Germany to counterbalance Eng-Fra alliance?
Replay you first moves up north in the early game to see how badly you played there...
01 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: ... you even lately destroyed the unit in the SC the closest to nation you claim I indirectly helping them to win the game...
01 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: I cant believe I am having this discussion... I m out...
