12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello everbody.
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Howdy.
13 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi everyone
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Looks like Turkey wishes to stay neutral this year?
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yes, I hope we are all gentlemenly enough to respect Turkey’s neutrality. :)
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sounds good to me!
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Welcome, Sultan.
18 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Ok..Italy is scared now!
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1903: I wonder why
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Very bold of you Austria...getting into a two front war!
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Just don’t do a land war in Asia
28 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1907: This game is stalemated. Nobody's going anywhere. Let's declare a draw.
28 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Why wouldn't you take out T and win?
28 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Because if he does that's too obvious and he gets banned
28 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Banned?
28 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I’d rather a band
28 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Are people speaking code or just using incredibly bad puns?
01 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I’m just making a bad pun
01 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well, cut it out, they're killing me.
01 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Poor baby...
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: I don't think they are killing you. From the looks of the board, they are killing me. ;)
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Fair enough.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey Turkey, it's your conscience. You know it's worthwhile to attack Austria and gain some ground while he leaves you alone. You could get a nice chunk of supply centers from the Balkans should you act.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Save your breath. Turkey is not playing Diplomacy. Turkey is playing a different game. webFinlandization.net. I don't think that game is going to catch on.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: ;)
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Turkey is great at it though.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: The best!
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: I know
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Oh yeah!
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: That sort of gameplay is a little boring though. I would guess.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: But I guess it is satisfying to be the kingmaker.
01 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Much more satisfying than complaining in global chat
02 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Oh, I don’t know. That’s pretty fun too.
02 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Turkey you can't throw a game and expect no one to call you out on it
02 Mar 19 UTC I didn’t throw anything, I’m still very much playing
02 Mar 19 UTC But if being mad at me softens your loss by all means
02 Mar 19 UTC In terms of "throwing a game." That's not only wrong, but unwarranted. Every one of these games is different. When you have played more games you will understand that what makes this game unique is that each game IS different. I have played games in which allies quit mid-game at crucial moments. I have played opponents whose two nearest neighbors were no-shows. I have played games in which guys deliberately took each turn to the final minute before entering moves for the entire game.

You do not get to dictate who can ally or what the details of that alliance can be. If you could, it wouldn't be much of a game.

I notice that you have an excellent reliability rating, France. Good. That's the one stat that means anything. All the others, ALL of the others don't mean squat. Suck it up and become a better player, both tactically and strategically. We can all improve.
02 Mar 19 UTC This really has you worked up man
02 Mar 19 UTC Yeah, it does.

This is a game. It's supposed to be fun. I don't come on this website to be accused of cheating. One of the players in THIS game called me an "asshole." While that may very well be true, I don't come here to hear it. Now I've been accused of cheating.

We didn't cheat and the jury's still out on whether or not I'm an asshole.

Stop blaming others for your own inadequacies. Improve your own play.

Good luck in your future games. I'm finishing this one and another in which, oddly enough, I am also allied with Turkey and doing very well as Russia. Then, I'm shutting down.

I am especially proud of the fact that I taught my ally, Turkey, how to mount an amphibious assault and then showed him how it was done by convoying St. Pete to Clyde as I began the gutting of England.

Now THAT'S fun.
02 Mar 19 UTC When you invest your time and energy in playing this game, there is a basic presumption that everyone involved has agreed that they are playing to win. Obviously the game is more fun when people don’t drop out, quit, or throw the game, but that is life. It is too bad the game doesn’t have a concede option, so like in this situation you can just end the game and give Austria the win.
02 Mar 19 UTC I agree with the concede option, but I will say this; your presumption of other players' motives is just that, a presumption, and not necessarily true. Not every game goes until there is a winner. People frequently play for a draw. Others just play to survive.

At any rate, I'm sorry your experience was sub-par.
02 Mar 19 UTC Yep, they totally need a concede feature.
02 Mar 19 UTC Good win Austria
02 Mar 19 UTC Everyone else, I’m not sorry that I didn’t stab Austria. I know my doing so would have made it possible for one of you to win and you are sore about that. But bummer for you. Your whining doesn’t make me regret my decision in the slightest
02 Mar 19 UTC Fair enough, but you do have to admit it is pretty weird for an experienced player like yourself to not try to win
02 Mar 19 UTC I mean you have a pickup basketball game and one of the guys keeps passing the ball to the other team. You say, “what the heck are you doing?” And he says, “I have my reasons” or he says, “I’m doing it because you guys are a bunch of whiners.” That would be sort of weird, right?
02 Mar 19 UTC I’m just saying
02 Mar 19 UTC ;)
02 Mar 19 UTC *shrugs*
