18 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everybody! Let’s hope that whoever created this game is more trustworthy than the name suggests!
22 Jul 20 UTC Hi all, new Germany is here.
22 Jul 20 UTC As I see noone is talking with Germany till now, but it could be difrent now.
22 Jul 20 UTC Russia sends its congratulations on the overthrow of the previous government!
22 Jul 20 UTC I see now that Turkey has left too.

Given that Germany and Turkey both left at about the same time seems to confirm suspicions I already had about those two (and voiced to Italy as soon as the game began):

1. Both accounts were created within 10 minutes of each other just days ago.
2. Both accounts joined this game within 1 minute of each other.
3. Both accounts are in multiple games with each other, despite having just joined the site.

Taken together, this seemed to suggest something fishy was going on. I emailed the mods days ago, but have heard nothing back. But now we can add to this list:
4. Both accounts left the game at approximately the same time.

Given all of this, I propose we draw. I know it might seem self-serving since things aren't exactly rosy for Mother Russia right now, but I think these antics have ruined the integrity of the game. Any objection?
22 Jul 20 UTC I have no objection
22 Jul 20 UTC I've just arrived in this game and don't know what was happened before, but reading that and in the name of honesty, I will support Russia, if all of you thinks in the same direction.
22 Jul 20 UTC think*
22 Jul 20 UTC Or the other option is to Cancel, so me and the potential new Turkey not to have some point benefits of the Draw.
22 Jul 20 UTC I have no problem with it
23 Jul 20 UTC Austria?
23 Jul 20 UTC Lets all just kill Austria if he does not want to draw
23 Jul 20 UTC Well thats pretty odd Russia considering I'm still here so???
23 Jul 20 UTC However since everyone wishes to draw I will draw, however idk how we force a draw. Because as Russia has said i am in-fact new.
23 Jul 20 UTC You didn't do anything wrong, the previous player was cheating and it created an unfair spread on the board
23 Jul 20 UTC Austria, we can see you’ve entered orders since these public messages began, but have not voted to draw. What’s the harm in ending this?
23 Jul 20 UTC Wasn't home till late and set orders without reading, just to be sure.
Now I read all and yes the shared suspicions came true. Sadly.
23 Jul 20 UTC Thank you. Turkey, you just need to click the draw button and the game will end.
