15 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I suggest an alliance of all of us not part of the Germany-Austria-Greek alliance.
15 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: If we keep fighting each other we are handing them the game
15 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Together - our odd pairing of countries can defeat this Alliance of Evil and allow our countries to live under our own banner!
16 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Damn those Greek scum!
21 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: This is a very good game. Everyone is playing really well.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: England and Italy: Well done. I believe you have definitively withstood my effort to go for the solo.

As you can see, my draw vote has now been entered. I would submit that the two of you should eliminate France and then vote draw yourselves.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hey!
06 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1913: France survives another year!
06 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1913: I don't understand how can this be happening. At the end he will defeat us
06 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: I accepted my fate
06 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Thank you for disappearing
07 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: France is officially eliminated. My draw vote is still in. You guys going to vote draw, or no?
07 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1914: What are we doing here guys?
08 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1914: We were loyal to each other so we will try to draw the two of us
09 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1916: Loyalty matters
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: maybe not?
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: I was hoping you would realize that earlier Italy.
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: In this moment, I would like to remind Italy of my prior warning:

"Second, 2-way draws are notoriously difficult because they put both players so close to the 18 center victory condition. Unless both parties are very careful, a quick stab can change a 2-way draw to a solo.
Third, you have left yourself very vulnerable to England in the west. The English Channel moving to the MAO would certainly cost you a center or two. Not to mention Paris sitting wide open as it is. England has to be tempted to try to go for the solo itself given your position.

In short, why don't you go ahead and vote draw?"

Not to say I told you so, but . . .
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: you did, and you were right.
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: Well, when you come out and acknowledge it like that, it makes me feel bad for rubbing it in. :)
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1918: The truth is that I feel very bad about it but I saw Austria letting me conquer easily it's supply centers.
Also I asked for brest a long time ago and also to let my fleet go to the Mediterranean to help and I got no for an answer.
The first option would be wiser because a fleet in the mid Atlantic Ocean could stop me easily.
The second" no" made me suspicious. A yes would have shown more confidence in an alliance. The truth is that we have not work together. Just a couple of moves.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1919: There is never any shame in going for the win. That is the point of the game, after all. It obviously did not work out for me, but I don't regret going for the win when I saw an opening.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1919: I don’t know. I remember names of players who are good partners and those that backstab.
12 Oct 18 UTC Congrats to England on a deserved victory. You repelled my effort at a solo and set up Italy perfectly to later solo yourself. You were strong tactically throughout the game.
12 Oct 18 UTC It's also rare to see a player join in 1902 after NMRs in year one, and then get the solo.
12 Oct 18 UTC I just wish I had support held Tyrolia in 1915 instead of Trieste. If I had kept Tyrolia and gotten the build from Greece, I think I could have forced the draw. I just guessed wrong.
12 Oct 18 UTC Thank you Austria! I feel bad and happy at the same time
12 Oct 18 UTC Congrats England. Well played.
