Game drawn
02 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1904: When Xapi hits unpause.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: I hope England and France enjoy getting no points for this game because they're retarded and let Russia solo.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Don't be a whiner.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Not my choice Italy, sadly France is determined to attack me rather than Russia
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, it was your predecessor's choice. Not really yours. But I hope he enjoyed CDing.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Kiss and make up?
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: Dude. Diplomacy is totally against the spirit of the game. It's so much more fun to mindlessly attack people you don't like while someone else benefits.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: I have offered that, even of the prospect of a French kiss is ....
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: If this was about attacking people I don't like, I would have built F Mair a long time ago.
12 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1906: I was using an idiom. Basically suggesting that it might be time to change course rather than just ploughing on regardless
14 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: So, I have decided I'll play along with you guys and try to force the draw under one condition:

That we do it fast.

I don't care if this game ends in a draw or a solo by Russia, I really don't. But I would like the game to be over with.

So, If you guys make a line that stops Russia from advancing and forces a draw ASAP, I will play along with that.
14 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'd suggest voting "draw" then...
14 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's usually a good start to drawing the game...
14 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: There you go, but what you need to draw this game is to convince Russia that he can't win it.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: For a masters game to end with a 7-way draw, this is rather pathetic.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: A perfect game would end in a 7-way draw...
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Lol, no it wouldn't. There are inherent better alliances in the game then others. If everyone was a perfect master, some countries would lose out.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Not to mention those masters would realise such an outcome being possible, and play to better their own odds of winning (thus alliances, thus inevitable countries being killed off to the advantage of the whole.
16 Jul 10 UTC lols
