Game drawn
06 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: That would be ideal. Russia is now on my blacklist and I would be all for knocking him out and drawing
06 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Yeah something like that would be totally acceptable.
06 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: In order to do that, you have to back off from the stalemate line.
06 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: We could ask a mod to replace him.
06 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I think knocking him out would be the simplest solution. Everyone else has fought well in this game. Austria and France can go all for it.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I'll back completely off from Italy this turn. and Hang tight in StP.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Alright, Austria, lets make quick work of it. I'll move to Prussia and maybe I could get support into Warsaw?
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Russia is here and not going down so easy, just to let you know.

France, I'll be leaving the Ionian next turn, have a moron in Vienna to deal with.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Russia, if you have been here why haven't you entered moves in a year and not asked for a pause?
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: He wasn't here for spring and fall but did put in fall retreat orders, otherwise that unit would have disbanded.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I missed the turns due to RL issues, should have entered some moves, this was a mistake.

Not really involved in talking because the game is now in the stupid phase where 6 people nominate who to kill next, in order to get a slightly improved draw. I did not expect AUS to be so crazy to attack me. We had a stalemate line in the South which, together with MUN/BER, guarantees there can be no solo. Now we'll fight while FRA can roam free in the Med and probably win.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Russia,

You missed two turns. I'm sorry you had problems IRL, but that doesn't change the fact that you NMR. Austria could not have just sat by pretending you entered moves. You didn't ask for a pause, nor did you even hit the pause button. Then, you finalized your retreat without talking to anyone.

It really looked to everyone, including me, that you had given up on the game. Now that you are back, I am sure you can work something out with Austria. You are still in a perfectly defensible position.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: And Russia, it really doesn't matter anymore now, does it? Berlin-munich is lost due to your inaction
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Why? If MUN/BER is lost, it will be England's fault, not Russia's.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: True, but I don't think England is in any mood to turn against France if it will just mean he'll be eliminated for the draw.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: You know, if we all stopped fighting eachother, we could force France to draw. Can't we all just get along? : (
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Well yeah, we could. But sadly it seems that England has bought France's line about "I'll keep you around for the draw if I can't solo." Which I really don't understand, given the context of France insisting on eliminating people, and for some reason, insisting on eliminating people that hold positions crucial to the stalemate as opposed to those who don't. Oh wait. Now I see why he wants to eliminate Italy and Germany!
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Alternatively I posses a peculiar characteristic called loyalty, and want to reduce the draw without needlessly harming those who have helped me.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: That's what they all say. :-)
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I'm sure they all do. However I like to think my actions speak far louder then a bunch of words.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Loyalty is a complete bulls**t characteristic in this game. If you were invited to this game, then you don't play like a noob. Everyone here plays to solo, and we all know that
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: That's why I prefer to keep quiet in the global chat... It's only good for insultng each-other :)
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: That's why I prefer global chat hehe :)
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I'll play however I want Germany. Being loyal has served me well enough in getting to the top 50. It'll continue to serve me well I'm sure. You're welcome to play how you want. But I certainly am not playing like a "noob"
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I'm sorry if I offended you France. Its just that from my experience playing top 50 players, I have yet to see your style. That is all I meant to convey. I'm glad it has worked well for you and to be frank, I'm a bit bitter about how this game is unfolding at the moment, and my emotions are affecting my press.
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I'm not overly offended. More just a little miffed that you assumed my style of play is one resulting from a lack of experience.

I can totally understand your frustration. I know I'd be pretty pissed in your situation too.
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Well, I'm glad you didn't take my words to heart, because despite what happens in this game you've been a great opponent and I'd look forward to squaring up with you again in a later game
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I tend not to take press to heart. After all, every game is a fresh slate. =)

I might hunt you down for another game then, you've certainly been a worthy friend and opponent as well. Though after I've had my break from this site. (This is my last game xD)
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: (Unless the masters starts up again. >.<)
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Well a big thank you to Russia and Austria for screwing the game and handing France the solo. And thank you Russia for forcing me to disband a unit by moving to Prussia.
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I gave AUS all my moves and we also discussed what he should move... he had his own ideas clearly... maybe it's again my fault... entered orders too early or something...
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Nothing I could have done would have saved you Germany, sorry. Russia sealed your fate when he told me he would refuse to support hold you.
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: So how's gang up on Turkey going for y'all? :)
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: He he he. Naturally Turkey would come back to gloat. ;) I don't know. I still think this is headed for a draw.
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I was going back through the chat logs for this game, and realized that so far two people have successfully ID'd me.
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Coincidentally shortly after IDing me they died. ;)
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: I don't even remember who all was in this game besides PE. Germany and I are in another game together which we only know due to common pause requests. (Sub-text: I have no idea who you are France. ;)
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: You'd have to be one merciful guy to make this a draw, France...
08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Had to go back a bit to find where Turkey put it.

08 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1919: Don't worry, I have agents working on that already. Soon their orders will be changed while they sleep.
