02 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: ALL I CAN TYPE ARE BIG LETTERS! SOMEONE CALL (!!
03 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: I really want to talk some shit right now.
03 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: God forbid that I ever have to play as Austria in this game
03 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fuck both of you
04 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I see the Christian powers of Russia, Austria, and Italy would like to vanquish Turkey!
04 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: It is so hard to understand why they would do that . . .
04 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Guys I'm at jury selection today. Posting from my phone sucks, just can't see the map Or scroll through messages until tonight. will catch up then.
04 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Getting to be a hell of a game.
04 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Does, repeatedly playing a game of world domination automatically exclude you for the jury pool?
05 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: It should count as a tax break. I must say this is an amazing game. I hope that everyone will continue in the future regardless of outcome.
05 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: And the first one bites the dust . . .
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I see the last of you two on, let's enter and move forward, yes sir?
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I see the last of you two on, let's enter and move forward, yes sir?
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Is there a world summit Wednesday night? Perhaps one with food and drink? Hosted at Wisconsin, in the neutral nation of The United States?
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Unfortunately half of wisconsin is leaving to welcome poland back to the us. Although half is enough if you talk to the, apparently, better half.
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: what in the world are you peeps talking about...
06 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: I also wonder if being a contract attorney gives me a different concept of what constitutes an agreement.
06 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1904: The Chevy Chase Bank in the lobby of my Building just got robbed at gun point according. What the F?
06 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1904: Whoa. STAY AT YOUR POSTS!
06 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1904: so you can't disrupt a disrupt right? For example looking at what happened in the balkans.. triest to serb did not disrupt serbs disruption of greece... so greece was not able to support move ionian to aegean...?
07 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1904: I think you can find more information on the sourceforge page for the software this site runs, but I'm pretty sure what happens is that the game processes the moves in rounds, where first it determines all the units that are defending, then it subtracts those units from those that have attack/support orders, and finally it assesses who wins. So basically, if a unit is forced to defend, its other orders don't get processed (obviously) but where there is confusion is that since all defending units are identified by the game simultaneously (for fairness reasons) a unit can both be a defending and an attacking unit for the purpose of determining which units are being "canceled."

What does this mean practically speaking? - that you can't cancel a units attack orders but you can cancel its support orders.

All of this is my best guess.
10 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: oh nooooooooos
13 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, I guess this is a good lesson on the damage it does to you to back stab your partner, Turkey. You and Austria could have been Russia-Italy. (Just to rub it in during your dying days, haha)
14 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: I feel so betrayed
14 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1905: Let it be known that England is claiming its rights to Sweden through its betrothal agreement between Phillipa, daughter of Henry IV, to Rugenwalde. It has become widely known and accepted throughout the ever-lightened empire that subsequent kings had ignoble claims to the throne.
18 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: This is an exciting game.
19 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: ok that's wierd... why did my command not go through gulf of both to sweden.. wtf
19 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: I think we should vote draw now - before my disband orders go through.

Who agrees?!?

Good Game, fellas.
19 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: I agree! Good game!
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Strange. The computer sent me a message stating that unless I devoted an army or navy to quell the insurgency that Armenia would support move any force into neighboring territories. I guess the message is triggered when outside forces are threatening the empire's territorial integrity.
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ha - I've never heard that before. Territories can go into "civil disobedience" mode, but I had no idea that had practical implications.
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: But maybe it's just programmed for the Armenians . . .
Why don't you order them all to be "deported to Syria" . . .

(perhaps that is a bit tasteless)
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: And I have to say, Spring 1902 - Autumn 1902 in the Balkans is hilarious.
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: You mean when austria got bizzacked... I have to say he almost came back from that which is impressive.
20 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: You mean when austria got bizzacked... I have to say he almost came back from that which is impressive.
20 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: _Gullible_

I just realized it, thinking about it this morning, that Turkey was kidding about Armenia. Ha!
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Want to play out this year and then call it a draw?
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: i can live with that.
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: COWARDS!
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I prefer to see how things play out. England, you are quite kind to bow out on the lip of domination. I believe that in future games, we will all be better and draws will become much more likely. I would not mind seeing how a victory plays out.
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I will vote for a draw
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: i want to get the next game started!
21 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I would play it out, but I hope we could agree to all be on either tonight or tomorrow night (or Saturday but I would prefer an evening so I can drink beer without feeling guilty) and essentially play out 5-15 minute rounds and finish it in a few hours.
22 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I can tentatively agree for tomorrow night after 7.
22 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: i have a dinner date, we'll see if this broad cancels...
22 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: I have found that the ladies really don't like Diplomacy; well, at least 2 ladies are not fans.
22 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: By dinner date, Mike means that he has a commitment to play a different video game with other dudes. We're his backup date.
22 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1907: That's because in the end women don't understand the concept of diplomacy.
22 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hmm, I guess my orders didn't enter right, because I def gave them to my northern fleets . . .
22 Jan 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well... I didn't actually want to move to norway :)
