03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Are you willing to put a fleet in Rum?
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: As explained, the Rum unit should be an army in order to be able to retreat to Ukraine after being dislodged. I will protect Rumania with all my effort.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Do you see your inflexibility and selfishness? I CANNOT trust forever that you will never stab me at Serbia and Budapest. An army in Rumania is far more dangerous to me, than your inability to retreat to Ukraine would be to you. You are being COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE. If we are to have war, then look in the mirror and blame yourself.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: LOL. All of this on global. roflmao.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I do not think anyone believes that my one land unit in the Balkans and 2 more on board against Austria's 6 to be 8 after build, while I have promised on Austria's request to build fleet, is a threat to Austria.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: What are your terms?
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Your daughter and 50,000 acres.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Daughter-ok
05 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: gg
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: i vote draw, while i still have a name somehow
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'll vote draw when Turkey is eliminated, as Austria suggested,
07 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1905: A strange game , this one ...Has been a good one though.
I cant quite figure out the A/R relationship in this one though..Some kind of love/hate thingey?
09 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks for the case?
10 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: what has happened - the turn prolonged by 12 hours?
10 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: there was a holdop in order processing , due to server issues - all games have had extended deadlines. Just READY orders , and the turn will progress as usual.
10 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: mine are ready
19 Nov 11 UTC @France: I did tell you, in detail, what would happen, didn't I? Even knowing exactly what I would do, you failed to stop it. I'm sure you even told Germany, and yet the two of you didn't move against Russia in the north when you when you could have and should have. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

@Russia: Good game. Well played. Having the win gift-wrapped in the end doesn't mean you didn't earn it. You most definitely did, with a very good game. Congratulations on your victory. Hope to play you again.
19 Nov 11 UTC It's tempting to write a detailed respond to this, but since all Austria has done is engage in embarrassing childish behaviour I fear it would be wasted.
Yes Austria you did tell me you'd throw the game because I moved into the Tyrrhenian sea, and you have. You should be very pleased and impressed with yourself. Giving you territory away is actually a very difficult task, I can only congratulate you on the superb way you have done this.
Anyway, Russia has played very well, but it's not quite over yet. It may be soon, but not quite yet... :)
19 Nov 11 UTC HAHAHA. Not childish at all. Promising to suicide out against a final attacker is part of Diplomacy and always has been. You just have to learn how to Deal With It. But you haven't. You had to choose between either backing off from your attack, or making a joint F/G attack on Russia immediately, to save your game. Had you done either one, I had a chance to survive, and so did you. But you chose neither, and made sure you would lose along with me. You call my actions childish. I think yours were just plain stupid. YOU threw the game to Russia because you failed to take either of two actions that could have saved the game.
19 Nov 11 UTC Thank you all for a most interesting game.
