03 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Welcome
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy, can I just say that this was one of my least favorite games played on the site. It seems as if I was not playing diplomacy, but a game of how long can I hold off Italy while France swoops in for the solo and Italy welcomes him in with disbands.

I don't appreciate a neighboring power ignoring all my press. I don't appreciate a player throwing a solo to another power in order to attack a smaller power.

Was there something I did that caused you to play the way you did?
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: To be fair to Italy, once England and Germany were quite clearly allied, non-aggression was pretty much assured with me, which allowed him to focus on you. I happened to stab at a pretty fortunate moment. Italy is far from dead, and if England had put up more of a fight and kept my fleets in the north, he'd likely be the one in the lead. As far as giving me a solo, he's putting up quite a fight, and it's not like Germany is laying down.
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Why did he disband in Venice?
Also doesn't excuse the fact of playing this game as almost a gunboat. I've tried to work with Italy in a number of different ways, but silence...

Italy attacking Austria at the right time in the right way can be very powerful, but I feel like Italy's sole goal this game has been to destroy me, not to win.
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: He's foolish not to talk to you while being invaded by france
russia equally foolish if not talking to you...
08 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just curious -is the plan to hand the game to France and just play it out? ;-)

08 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Happy to help stop France
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: italy = germany - russia ... wakey wakey ..... :-)
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: italy can't hold out much longer .. neither can germany...

russia- it's mainly on you actually - you need to defend germany and england
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: may be too late to stop french juggernaut at this point but might be possible -- if evryone communicates and cooperates :-)
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: And you just built a fleet to help?
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: good point. i didn't think anyone talking .. and the A gae me more options for defence
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: most important right now is for russia, germany and italy to talk
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: and british fleet stp good too - russia don;'t waste time killing it...
22 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1913: Convoy alb to apu.
