02 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1903: did austria just leave? :'(
02 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: well, Austria wasn't long for this world anyway ;)
05 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: aangaang was banned: Multi/meta.
05 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Uhh ok
19 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Did Turkey just kill his own support by hitting Western Med?
20 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yep.
22 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Ugh, destroyed the wrong unit. Doesn't matter anyways...
26 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1911: Anybody willing to explain all of those hold orders last Fall?
26 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1911: probably people missing turns? Idk? I missed my turn accidentally :/
27 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: As this stands, I have made it effectively possible for Italy and I to solo. Even if I were to lose I have given Italy the chance to solo as well.
27 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: you can't both solo lol...
28 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'm still unsure how Italy has as much of a chance as you do Turkey. Italy has as much of a chance as England to solo.
28 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: If I mismove, it is much easier for Italy to win.
28 Feb 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: Yeah, but you're holding all the cards. It's your game to lose not his game to win.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1912: Turkey, how about we make an agreement, If I beat you, I won't fully conquer you, we'll draw but you'll be extremely weakened, the same will go for me, If you beat me, you won't fully conquer me and we'll draw.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1912: There ain't beating anyone unless someone solos or someone is defeated. All of this points to me getting beat 100% of the time.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1912: Yeah, you need either at least a 3 person draw or a solo.

Either draw after France is eliminated or go for broke.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1912: A survival looks better than a defeat. But there's essentially no chance a survival will happen.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1912: Unfortunately, with draw-size scoring they get more points if they eliminate you before drawing. Eliminating England afterwards causes one of them to win by default, so that is less likely to happen.

If I was Turkey I would position myself for a stab against Italy as best I could and then after France was eliminated give it a go. Tell England you'll agree to a draw if it fails so worst case scenario he's still in a draw.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1912: I don't have the necessary armies to completely eliminate france. Also, I know it looks like I'm about to get beat, but I am far from that. Also, worst comes to worst, I will throw the win to whoever doesn't try to solo, so I suggest we draw. If one of you can eliminate France, I can't stop you but if you won't cooperate it looks kinda tough lol. Also, I have the most ships by far, there is no way you will be able to get into any of the north to attack my mainland. Therefore, I will set draw.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1912: If I do manage to pull this off, yea. I won't full conquer Italy. I only decided to go for the win because this will be the last Diplomacy ill play for a while.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1912: England, why did you only build fleets this game?
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Uh oh. A 3 way draw is clearly written on the wall. France will be eliminated. Prepared for any and all moves.
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Shouldn't have backstabbed me :P As far as building ships, that's what I needed to push france back. I used to have another army but it got destroyed. I don't need many armies. maybe just two or three.
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: You could use a couple more.
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Fleets keep England safe, but her armies win her wars.
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Which, due to the lack thereof he didn't win the war. He stalemated...
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1913: I overslept.. oops :/
06 Mar 18 UTC I'm just going to get ready to hold my defense now. Thanks for making my last diplomacy (for a while) worthwhile :)
06 Mar 18 UTC You're welcome, thank you for making the diplomacy worthwhile with your great playing :)
06 Mar 18 UTC Yeah! This has been fun :) Still not up for a draw?
06 Mar 18 UTC Who said I wasn't?
07 Mar 18 UTC Not you France, Italy and Turkey both still don't want a draw apparently
07 Mar 18 UTC Put the draw vote up England! Show them you stand steadfast to a draw and use your powers to force them to draw! I believe in you England!
07 Mar 18 UTC I had it up for the last two turns...I'll put it back up just as soon as italy and turkey do
07 Mar 18 UTC Who said I didn’t want to draw?
07 Mar 18 UTC You not having your draw vote up says that
07 Mar 18 UTC ^^^Genius.^^^
07 Mar 18 UTC Lmao
07 Mar 18 UTC England for President! England for President!
07 Mar 18 UTC There, my draw vote is back up...you happy now?!
07 Mar 18 UTC Rah! Rah! England has entered the election as a 3rd party and polls currently show him leading 40-32-28 over the competition! Woo hoo!
07 Mar 18 UTC To be fair, I know I am most definitely going to be out of the race for a solo now. With that said, Italy has the best chance for this if I give up now. I'll put the draw vote up, but I respect Italy's decision if he chooses not to. After all, I did instigate this mess.
07 Mar 18 UTC Ok, the game has been drawn, good game to all.
07 Mar 18 UTC Ok, the game has been drawn, good game to all.
07 Mar 18 UTC gg
07 Mar 18 UTC Good game! I'm going to be honest with you guys, I would not of drawn the game with me if I were you.
07 Mar 18 UTC Well, I decided to be nice :)
07 Mar 18 UTC <3
07 Mar 18 UTC I was seriously considering trying to solo at this point, tbh, since I was really well positioned to. Italy/turkey didn't seem to be able to eliminate you France, and I couldn't really without armies. Even though I wanted to because you stabbed me. Good game all, a draw is an fine outcome :)
