08 May 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I think that Germany and Italy's invasion of France have really only left him with one other option.
08 May 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Are you saying that France's one remaining option is to assist Turkey?

I see both Russia and France in the same position, as hinges that are trying to keep the game in equilibrium. They don't have viable chances at solos so they want to prevent some other solo and instead force a draw. If it were PPSC it would be different, but in WTA there is no merit to survival.

Same thinking would be for Germany (and russ/italy/fra) to want to eliminate England.... it increases the chance that Turkey would agree to draw (since the split would be less)
09 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I just want to be clear that I am not acting out of spite, I will disclose my full diplomatic reasons for my actions at the end of the game.

: )
09 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: If we are to stop the Turks from taking over the world, Germany and France must work together.
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Why would you want to stop the Turks from taking over the world?
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: i guess they aren't big on gyros.

Russian Report: Back to survival mode. not growing much. Tried serving two masters and confused turkey by it. so turkey turns on me and ends up not holding to the deal we had. naturall ymaking germany my new "master" goal was to set up to be able to hold.
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I turned on Russia not because I was confused, but because he explicitly stated that his goal was to prevent me from winning.
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: by saying there is a change of plans meant i wasn't sure yet of who i was going to be used by.
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I meant this quote: "its a winner takes all game so i dont; want someone to solo. how could we get a draw?"
10 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: germany was getting big too but i can see how that does look like i was going mainly for you
10 May 10 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm dead - good game thank you. I think in conclusion my diplomacy was at fault. I made too many commitments and could not follow through on all of them, so nobody trusted me.
10 May 10 UTC Spring, 1908: This last year I could not persuade France to work with the united front against Turkey. With six fleets it seems inevitable that Turkey will find its final 3 SCs in por/spain/mars. Had France kept its fleets I would have fooled myself into believing we had a chance to stalemate Turkey; though its probably technically impossible at this point.

one problem i always have is holding this type of stalmate line (from Switzerland to Moscow). Does losing Boh mean we lose the line?
10 May 10 UTC Spring, 1908: So I guess last year I ended my few remaining alliances. Russia had set himself against me winning, so I didn't really feel bad. France seemed much more receptive, and I may regret that stab as a stall on Germany, but I wasn't sure when I was going to hit a stalemate line, so I decided to go for broke and grab the SCs, hoping I could force my way through a line before I ran out of steam.
13 May 10 UTC Spring, 1909: As long as Bur. support's Mar. and Gas. support's Spain we have a stalemate.
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: You guy's couldn't let me survive :-(.
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Sorry. Four way draw won out over five way draw.
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I didn't get to vote!
13 May 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: yeah, it was secret ballot. so secret that you may not have known about it.
14 May 10 UTC Good game everyone!
15 May 10 UTC good game everyone. it was fun and educational
