14 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello Comrades, I look forward to a peaceful and diplomatic future with all of you.
14 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck to all.
14 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: +1

Good luck everybody
17 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1902: Hello! Just joined as Turkey! Good game.
03 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: The moderators says, that everybody are on vacation, so the problem won't be over shortly...
03 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well we could always take this as a draw! (Please save me)
03 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yes, I definetly can't see a way, where this would not end in a 7 man draw!
05 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: ADR to Apulia ?
05 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sure.
05 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Done.
07 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: No skill in this guys. 24 against 10. If you wanted to draw you should have gone to art classes. Very disappointed in you France thought you were a better player.
07 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Watch your back Germany this is not a three way draw game.
07 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Warsaw is doomed.
07 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: "If you wanted to draw you should have gone to art class" Lol
08 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hahaha sounds like the words of a man on a sinking ship! Just accept the fact that you got outplayed and walk on!
08 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: If you ever fancy a one to one game your on. As long as I don't have Italy.
How anybody wins planning that God forsaken country I will never know. You are far to reliant on trusted allies and they are like hens teeth to find.
08 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I will happily take you in a one to one but I'm focusing on finishing this game first!
08 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ok we can set it up after this game.
09 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1910: So... If this is just a giants waiting to get to a draw-game, I will play accordingly. If anyone have plans to do something different, they can write pm.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Okay, France, Austria, listen up. I need both of you to stop making moves against the other. Once Austria eliminates Turkey I propose a 3 way draw. Be warned that whoever makes aggressive moves towards the other next turn will have to face Germany as well as your previous enemy.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Austria, feel free to finish off Turkey and then cede me Norway.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Wait! What kind of way is that to play the game?! It is designed to play to 18. The draw is a way to end games, that takes too long, or have reached a state, where nothing happens. This way, you can just make a three-way alliance from the start and win, or make an incredibly boring 2-fixed alliances-game. It ruins the balance.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: I can't do anything from my position, and it is your game from now on, but I think it is a very shitty way to play the game...
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: I'm with you Turkey, it is a really crap way to play and gives no hope to the players with the rubbish countries who generally think themselves lucky to get a survive.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Based on this game I think I will stick to the one on one. At least your result is based on your own efforts.
17 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1913: That way, you can put yourself in a corner, and win by default.
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: This is the problem with the points system ,instead of playing to win people draw for the sake of 13 points extra on their profile.
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: But nobody can win, the moment either makes significant process towards winning I’ll have to turn on them to prevent it. Nobody is going to be able to win in this situation.
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Well, that is a bold statement... It just sabotages the system, where you are never sure, if you can trust the other, or when they will turn. If you just end up drawing, when there is plenty of game left, then this game was decided in spring 1907, where you were three giants left. In a "real" game, the tension would be, that neither of the great powers can be sure of one another, since they now, that sooner or later, they need to turn.
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Ok Germany if you are convinced that a draw is unavoidable why not draw now and include Turkey he has played well and not walked away when it was obvious he could not win. A lot of player would done that . He deserves a draw as much as yourself. You more than anyone should see that because France and Austria may decide to eliminate you for those extra points.
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: France is after a solo!
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hold the front page. ' Diplomacy player attempts to win game!'
18 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: I haven't said to anyone that I am going for a solo
21 Sep 18 UTC Gg
21 Sep 18 UTC That move shows that I am not in a position to solo anymore so calling a draw now is the best option for me
22 Sep 18 UTC GG, hope everyone enjoyed the game.
