14 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: He didn't put in his orders, missing this turn will put him in CD.
15 Aug 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry guys.
Life got in the way a bit. (Stupid Work)
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: This game's combat resolution mechanic is fked up. My Rome army's support to Naples should not have been broken with the Venice support hold. I'm done with this game until the game's programers figure out how to read the rules from the original game and implement them properly.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Tuscany broke your support.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: In the board game, it would have taken TWO armies attacking Rome to break the support, since I have a support hold from Venice.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Venice succesfully supported the hold at Rome
Rome was forced to change its order from 'support hold' to "hold" as it was being attacked, AKA having its support cut.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: It's support should not have been broken with the Tuscany attack since the Rome square had an additional strength point from Venice. In the board game, it would have taken TWO armies/fleets attacking Rome to break its support of Naples.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: Like I said, the rules they are using are NOT the same as the board game. Like I said, I'm angry about the differences in the rulesets.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: The 'support hold' from Venice, only did that. It supported the unit holding against mine. It didn't 'support the support'. Thats per the boardgame.
19 Aug 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: and for the most part 95%, the online version stays faithful to the tabletop. Self dislodges, Self disbands didn't make it to the php version.
19 Aug 08 UTC Spring, 1906: No sir, there were two ways to stop your Tuscan army from interfering with the Rome support. One was to have Venice attack Tuscany, the other was to have Venice support Rome and thuse give rome a strength of two. This is per the Avalon Hill Diplomacy rules 1976
19 Aug 08 UTC Spring, 1906: This will be the last time, the affluent, respected nation of France will offer alliance to Italy.

Time to kiss the Emperors ring

: )
19 Aug 08 UTC Spring, 1906: Venice attacking Tuscany would have caused a bounce, Tuscany still would have bounced at Rome (cutting support in the process)

Anyhow, I'm willing to place a gentlemans bet of one chipotle burrito as to the legality of the whole thing. (with guacamole)
01 Sep 08 UTC Spring, 1911: Titty!
01 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1911: ohh well good game all had lots of fun fare well from the austrian empire
04 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1912: Dammit! Work ran longer than expected. I thought I'd get home in time. :(
06 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: rapscallions!
06 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: Raconteurs!
06 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hey , if you jerks stay on for the next 10mins we can end this tonight.
06 Sep 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: lol
