Game won by Flashy (176 D)
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: I've never been accused.
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: "knew", not "new"! Aughh!
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: I have been here for 9 years (I think), So I got a couple of people who expected me to play a certain way, and when I didn't, they complained I must be cheating. One was definitely a regular accuser, unhappy things weren't going their way, the other was an okay player who was uncertain, and tired of going down against cheaters.
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: italy, I am glad to see you engaged. I have never been accused. Likewise, I have never been an accuser either.

Moving forward, tell everyone why you are fine with Poland's dominance in this game, especially in light of the fact that: (1) the entire western part of the map is a hot mess; and (2) that I won't be able to defend the east from poland when I also have to defend against you.
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: who has done that?
30 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2001: I say I've never been accused. I really don't know.
30 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Egypt, I'll answer your questions. Your #2 first-You can't defend yourself because you have 6 fleets and 3 armies for a country that essentially has a land-locked backdoor. This type of squandered assets would have had you eliminated game years ago if you were a central power. (Your #1) The west is a mess because of our multi-moron not knowing what he was doing and trying to hide his identity. Coupled with the fact that France's stab(s) have completely unsettled the region.

The absolute gall, that you have for demanding someone beating you to explain why they are doing so, comes across as snarky and somewhat childish. maybe somebody should have rubbed your nose in it on your "first day of school".

I'll be honest why I won't consider you for a draw. You haven't played well enough to earn one. and that's just coming from me, an average strategist.

FYI- I'm playing the country of Poland, not Austria.
30 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Italy, You name ANY support you need and it is yours.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Poland, I'm not the guy who called you Austria. Further, my question was directed at Italy, not you -- Italy is the one who should justify why he permits you to win. Assuming I played a crappy game and France stinks too, isn't it even MORE imperative that Italy actively try to stop your solo?
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: I'm the idiot that said Austria. Too bad I'll be dead before revenge can be taken. Haha! Jokes on you!
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Egypt, it is simply that I keep my word, and Poland's success is my success. It may not show in my stats, But it is what it is. I don't keep turning on the biggest leader in the game. That's just crazy. And I know others who have supported me to wins in the same fashion. Not often, and I am more likely to be stabbed, but it does happen. I also give the money back to its owner. Is that wrong?
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: If it doesn't show in your stats then Poland success is NOT your success. And I'm sure you wouldn't expect better treatment from him next game because of the solid you did for him this game. That would be stealing from all the other players of THIS game.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: I never get allies like Italy. What I wouldn't give for one like that just once in a while...
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Same England.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Poland, would it gall you to know that I would not respect your victory under these circumstances. You seem like the type of guy who claims to be honorable. Explain to Italy whether you think his loyalty -- even against self-interest -- ruins the game or enhances it.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: You can't blame Poland for taking advantage. In his position, I'd do it.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: But he can admit it would be a tainted victory.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Better a tainted victory than a pure defeat.
31 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2002: I love Poland's self-serving logic.
31 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: ukraine, if you choose rostov, great, but just in case you choose geo, I'll have 1-2 supports for that move as well.
31 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: England, make sure you try for the Tyrrhenian. This will cause Italy to have to choose to weaken either Libya or Ionian.
01 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: I have already chosen. :(
01 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: cmon italy, you and i together have as many units as poland. if you peel some units off away from me to scoop up more centers in the west, i won't advance. i like our stable border.
01 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: Trust me, I play Diplomacy.
01 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Hey Serbia! Say hello to Podolia!
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Watch! It's coming now: One-two Podolian-Odessan punch!
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Hungary for Rumania!
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Austria, Craotia, Serbia....a five center deathstab.
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: It's what Italy deserves, leaving himself so tempting.
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Or does Poland not have it in him to win? Is he "moral"? "loyal"? the "good ally"? keeps his "word" and "honor" and we "respect" him?
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: In others words, is he a pussy?
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Meow.
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: He's not keeping that army at Podolia there because there is a good bed and breakfast in that region.
03 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: poland won't need to stab italy. he can just beat italy to the enemy centers to reach the 34 goal. poland will win with 'honor'.
04 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2004: Lol. Good game, Austria. Bad game, Italy. Live and learn. I've certainly been on the losing end of that exchange before.
04 Sep 16 UTC Woof!
04 Sep 16 UTC But, but, we're allies!
04 Sep 16 UTC You know what they call a peroan who stays loyal to the end in this game?
04 Sep 16 UTC I understand loyalty. I just don't understand how someone doesn't notice armies on their borders.
04 Sep 16 UTC Loser.
05 Sep 16 UTC oh Jefe, I'm never going to forget you. 662 games under your belt and only 30D points. Sad.
05 Sep 16 UTC LOL. Good game all.
05 Sep 16 UTC (To: Global, from Italy) - Spring, 2002: Egypt, it is simply that I keep my word, and Poland's success is my success. It may not show in my stats, But it is what it is.

05 Sep 16 UTC Yup.
05 Sep 16 UTC gg
05 Sep 16 UTC Good game, all! And it is not wrong.
05 Sep 16 UTC No. No. No. It was a bad game and I have negative feelings for Jefe personally.
05 Sep 16 UTC Toady-man.
05 Sep 16 UTC Stubborn AND stupid is a bad combination.
05 Sep 16 UTC No reason to have any bad feelings. Just a game. Not worth high blood pressure.
