08 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: It was either lose or fall back to a stale mate line and who knows perhaps England will eventually stab France and go for the win...
08 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: meh. One dimensional thinking IMHO. Dip is a game of alliances. Breaking them should be the exception, rather than the rule.
08 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: to each his own. But in my opinion I find that games with unbreakable alliances are much more likely to end a draw.
08 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: What would you have done in our position?
08 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Funny it is only Germany and Austria complaining...
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Are you now really telling us that being with 5 players, all you can come up with is managing an stale mate since alliances are unbreakable? Diplomacy is about conquering Europe, not about dividing it so everyone is happy. Why is Italy still in the game, with a mere 3 sp's, his own home sp's? He has not expanded so eliminate him! France and Turkey can split him up easily. That should give some new balance or alliance or options to change things. Come on guys, you are in a game that is worth 1001 points, not a game you start being a newbie. You all have played more games than this one and you know stabbing is how you progress from being 8-10 sp's to a position where you can actually think about winning the game. Russia now has to start defending moscow, giving turkey an option for the stab. That should give france some new insights as well, is england trustworthy, with the fleet in MAO? options people, options. Think about expanding instead of being scared to lose an sp...
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: If I stab either Russia or Italy it will allow France and England to make more gains than I would. And I wouldn't be able to hold a stalemate line without either of them.
My only logical choice is to either draw and wait behind the stale mate line with them until they start fighting each other.
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Or you should talk to england and work together on stabbing either france or russia. Hammer and anvil strategy... The ones in the middle have more problems since they have 2 fronts... in the mean time hope that russia and france do not form an alliance...
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Why is Germany so interested in the outcome of the game?
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: England is almost able to win the game without my help, aiding him against France would only give him the game.
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: I have played this game for 35 years, which is more than twice as long as most people on this site have been alive.

Just the same, I pride myself on my willingness to learn from everybody in this life. So, thank you for your input.
09 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: The beauty of this game is that almost anybody, with any experience level, can win.
10 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: I admire your persistance in playing this game, France!
Italy, I am not that interested in the outcome of this game, anyone can win it as far as I am concerned, it just bothers me to see a draw between 5 people out of 7. England is indeed still fighting for it and tends to gain the upper hand, as Turkey already noticed. Maybe that shoul dgive the other players some idea o fhow this game is played? No guts no glory!
12 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Turkey, are you feeling the heat?? Russia will fall, time to decide...
12 Jun 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Hey Dead Germany. STFU and join another game. All of this energy that you are wasting lecturing us could be better spent elsewhere.

You are both inexperienced and dead. None of us has an ounce of respect for your annoying ass.
19 Jun 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: I think we're done folks. Good games all.

In the end I decided to spice this game up a little. May yet concede the draw (or even be wiped out miserably) but let's see what happens now...

22 Jun 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: actually I think we can increase our stale mate line to include france
22 Jun 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: No stalemate. England gets wiped out. Then we draw. If you all decide to take me out, that's cool. You were the stronger team.
23 Jun 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Lets include France in the draw and take out England
01 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: I'll be gone for a couple of day,
Tillian if you don't finalize I should be back before the next phase ends.
so please just let the clock run out
01 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: OK. I will not finalise this time until we know that you are back online.
