29 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.

16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Should of expected two newbies to mute me. They couldn't even offer a rebuttal on why my arguments were wrong... Sad, if the had made the right choice, they would be able to rebut my arguments.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, you had no arguments, you where just telling me, that what I am doing is wrong. But Italy is still a democracy, and if my people fear France I have something to do against it.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll be home France: I didn't even bother opening your message as I knew what it would be
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: *I'll be honest
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Really? So you're admitting you couldn't even rebut what I stated in my message?
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: No: I'd rather lose to someone I worked with who played their cards right than someone got lucky and snowballed in the corner
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: And I'd rather not lose to somebody who refuses to follow their win condition and instead give up an SC and lose another SC for no gain; anybody stupid enough to try stopping a solo attempt when the offending country is at 9 SCs deserves to lose.

If you'd rather kamikaze your whole game just to fuck up mine solely because I'm a replacement who played his cards right in regards to stabbing England, than that's your noob idiot problem, not mine - as I'm not the one losing points.

England didn't "play his cards right", otherwise I wouldn't of made such a great move to backstab him.

You're an idiot for not reading someone's messages solely because they took over a good position and turned it into an even better position.

Holding biases or grudges in Diplomacy is a key characteristic of poor players. If you can't even rebut my argument using logic, than what logic is there in your reasoning?
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's some rant there France.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's what happens when people make moves that aren't based on their self-interest - actually hurting their own interests.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: You where getting too strong there France. Let's just keep it to that.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: 9 SCs. AND you were doing pretty well holding me off.

Bull shit reason; they're idiots if that's the reason.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Their alliance was worth 13 SCs - and that number would of gotten greater had they stuck to the plan and finished off Turkey.

Instead, Russia kamikazied his position against Turkey and in return, he's going to get a big fat jar of NOTHING. He also gave up a free SC like an idiot.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: More or less the same thinking I had when you backstabbed me:)
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Plus your back is more open than mine was.
The fact that you where successful and I miscalculated is another matter.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I counted on my two neighbors not being stupid and playing for a 3 way draw. Instead they've set themselves up for either a 4 way draw, or a solo (not from me).

Would be hilarious if their attempts to stop a solo threat that didn't exist resulted in a solo.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: This whole thing reminds me of people in a club getting mad I was playing Spades wrong...all the while they were losing 60-70% of their games to me.

Let people make their own decisions. The whole point of this game is you have to read the person. If Russia is the type to "kamikaze his position against Turkey for nothing" and you failed to read that, that is on you.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's on me? I can't read the idiot who's stupid to give up a free SC and one of his own SCs for nothing. I also can't read when an idiot's about to backstab me because he thinks I'm a solo threat at 9 SCs.

You can't predict stupidity.
16 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I think far in the future (around 2019) your great-great-great-grandson will lead the USA.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh dear France. It would seem in an attempt to show your superiority you've shown your true colours. Clearly you're just a spoilt, immature child who throws a tantrum when things don't go their way.
I, for one, am glad (even if it does turn out to be a mistake) that I didn't work with you
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: You even supported Italy to Munich! You fool! What SCs are YOU going to take from me? Now your neighbor is as big (and will be bigger) as me!

Fucking idiot.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: When people are being idiots (like you), yes I'll react. Italy's actually making a good move, with you as his mule boy, he'll easily solo.

You on the other hand are going absolutely nowhere and you set yourself up for an Italian solo.

Even if you're smart enough to prevent that Italian solo, you'll, still get a 4 ways draw because it's impossible to eliminate both me & Turkey without Itsly taking advantage and soloing.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: They were allies, and you aren't doing much to discourage them from remaining hostile.

Since that attack saved me. By all means, Keep on digging.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's the problem, they saved YOU. They've basically guaranteed an Italian solo or a 4 way draw because it's damn hard for two non-neighbors of Enhland to eliminate him.

Russia's an idiot; Italy's making a good move in the path of a solo.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey man, what's the name of the game? Diplomacy? Well, you aren't being very diplomatic here, you're just making a scene and digging your grave.
What's your aim here huh? Clearly you're trying to isolate me from the group and encourage Italy to stab me so that you'll have a chance to survive. However, as you can see, we have trust right now. He's had various centres open for me to take this entire game, as has England and yet we have trusted each other not to which has in turn strengthened our alliance. Your approach has been a purely practical one, and while it worked in the beginning, because you overextended and did not anticipate anyone not working with you, you're now at a disadvantage.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: So would you leave it alone and let people play the game how they want to play
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: After all, this is what this is meant to be; a game.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ha! If I wanted Italy to stab you, I would of said so privately.

I'm only on Global because you admitted to not reading thr messages I sent you privately.

I didn't anticipate you being a moron - giving up a free SC - and enabling Italy's solo. I thought you were smart enough to realize that we were headed for a 3 way draw; but I was clearly wrong there.

Let me tell you something Russia, if you want to team up on somebody, you negotiate to get a good portion of that country's SCs. YOU are stupid enough to support Italy into Munich - thus guaranteeing yourself NO SCs from me.

That's how much of an idiot you are.myoure literally devoting units that could help you take Turkey's SCs solely to SUPPORT Italy against me and take NO SCs from me.

That's stupidity on another level - especially since you gave up a free SC. You're helping England & Italy against me while hurting your own efforts against Turkey WITHOUT GETTING ANY SCs out of it.

I can't fathom anybody, not even a new player, being THAT STUPID! You're not even getting ONE SC out of me! And even if you did get an SC out of me, you should be getting 2-3 SCs out of me AT THE VERY LEAST to be worth your time helping your ally.
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Whatever man. I'm out of here. I'm supposed to be on holiday with my friends celebrating the end of my A levels, not arguing with some man child on the internet. You can clearly see the entire game is at odds with you so you have no reason to even be speaking and I'm sure the game master doesn't want to have to be continually notified because you can't deal with being beat
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: The "GameMaster" is an automated bot that sends the message if someone NMRs/CDs; so no, no one is being notified. I can't deal with rampant stupidity - I hope you use those A levels to get an education, because you need it!
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Right, and if someone NMRs/CDs, he'll have to sift through the piles of your meaningless whining
17 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: It's a bot; there is no sifting. It's done automatically by the site's software.
22 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Lol, how did you noobs fuck that turn up? Still alive!
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: You guys are getting good at this taking SCs from me thing - you finally took an SC!
26 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: What the point of you continuing this whole thing on. We get it.
30 Jul 19 UTC Get rekt idiots!

I warned you this would happen if you stabbed me! Great job Russia - this was definitely worth not doing these idiots the favor of letting them know the massive move you were about to pull off. I'm just happy you were smart enough to pull off the move (even if it wasn't a smart move for you to get involved against me).

You fools should of 3 way drawn with me when you could - instead you stuck to your useless "alliance" with England and cost yourself the draw.
30 Jul 19 UTC And I didn't bet anything in this game, so y'all can suck on that!
30 Jul 19 UTC Sorry guys :P well played regardless
30 Jul 19 UTC ah France, you really are special. last time you talked about how stupid Russia was, and now you tell us, you warned was :D you are such a funny person, your life must suck so hard. please enjoy it.

Russia... I am really disappointed in you and I was at first really angry But well played. I will take this completly on me. I lost this game. It was my first game played from start to finish. And I hoped we would play together. You played me well. GG to England, Germany, Austria, Turkey and Russia.
30 Jul 19 UTC I warned that it would either be 4 way draw or a solo - and yes, it was a stupid move by Russia; what was even more stupid was you & England's complete lack or border security.
31 Jul 19 UTC GG Russia!

Live and learn Italy. I'm in my first Italy game elsewhere and it is an interesting place to be.
31 Jul 19 UTC GG Russia.
