Game won by Josef IV (295 D)
13 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: So you are saying you aren't Russia's enemy?
14 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, nothing in Austria's move history would suggest they view themselves as Russia's enemy.
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lol. Austria is obviously very worried about the Russian solo.
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: nothing i can do about it except point it out and hope there is another intelligent person on this board

seems none of turkey or italy came here to do anything except help another player win. kind of defeats the purpose of this game even existing when people join with the intention of giving the game to another player

russia has 9 centres
2nd place has 5 centres

smart people can see that pts russia in a positon to solo
morons are too upset by me pointing it out to see the facts

turkey is so upset by me POINTING IT OUT that he's shut his brain off and is committing suicide to make sure russia gets a solo

and all because he's mad i pointed it out
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: I really do love my Austrian ally in this game!
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Not as much as you love those 9 centres!
15 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: You were so committed to stopping it Austria that you made sure I couldn't pick up a build this turn to block off the Mediterranean!
16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: WOW

you think at this stage i'd help you to fend off russia?!

16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lots of exclamation points means it must be true.
16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: How can a statement like "wow" be true, dumbass?
You're dumber than a Trump supporter
16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: I can see why you are obviously such a master of this game. Diplomacy is about charm and you have it in spades.
16 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: you're the one still bitching old man
19 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: You can either complain about the juggernaut or you can attack me. You can't do both my guy.
19 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: yes i can you ignorant jackass

i have 2 centers left, you really think my plan here is to do your dirty work for you?

how is it possible for any human to be as ignorant as you?
20 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: You really are skirting a line here. I'd rather not flag you for abusive behavior, so I'll settle for an apology. But you will not speak to me, or anyone else here like that.
20 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: For real Austria, enough is enough. Cool it or peace out. Nobody’s trying to hear all this.
20 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: LOL

A moderator told me once after a guy ran his mouth that :

"As long as you don't actually rape someone's daughter, you are allowed to say that you will while on this app"

Straight from a mod after I complained about a guy swearing and threatening people's kids.

And you're all bent out of shape over the word "ignorant"?

20 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ok. Russia and Turkey, can we eliminate this Internet tough guy right now please? I will retake Venice and you two can take Trieste. I doubt it will do much to change the progression of the game.
21 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Job done as you requested :)
21 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I don't know about you guys, but I'm really going to miss him.
21 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm going to enjoy the rest of this tutorial!

Russia: 10
Italy: 4

Can you count?
The simple fact is, several of you joined for no reason other than to kill yourselves in order to give the game away

those are the people we need to ban from the site
intentionally throwing the game in the first year or second year

and all because Austria didn't GIVE you all the centres you demanded

Now i get to watch you die
I'm happy
21 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I would be happy if we banned those throwing the game in the first year, e.g., you
21 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'd be happy if we banned arrogant know-it-alls who think they are the only ones ever to play this game before.
22 Nov 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Austria, could you please enter and ready up your orders, so that we can continue the tutorial?
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: So, I think now you all see my point.
At the start of the game, when everyone leaps on Austria; it is Russia who gets the solo.

Now, he hasn't Won yet; but no one is dumb enough to miss my point.
Killing Austria helps Russia.

All of England, Germany, and France - you all ignore the guy who is winning, and suicide against each other; so Russia can stab all of you in the back.

Its like you are losing ON PURPOSE.

The rules of the game say you have to try to win, and most of you are intentionally losing.

There is nothing more revolting, nothing LESS sportsmanlike, than contaminating a site with the exclusive intention of killing yourself just to make sure another player gets a solo victory.

And that is what almost every player on the board is doing.

Turkey learned his lesson.
The rest of you - mindless drones, suiciding to help Russia.


PS. The speakers by a players name allow you to "mute" them.
I'm muting all of you.
Suicide is revolting.
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Dear Austria, I missed you so much, glad to have you back with us!
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: OMG, he didn't include me in the list of revolting players! Are we friends now?
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: More to the point though, Austria gets killed fast in a large percentage of games. Occasionally that results in a Russian solo. Much more often it does not. Turkey attacks through Armenia, England lands an army in Norway and moves through Finland, Germany builds a fleet at Berlin, etc etc.
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: There are many possible outcomes after an early Austrian demise.
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: In this particular case, the key development was France attacking England long after it was clear that Turkey was cooperating in a juggernaut.
01 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey Austria, Thanks for calling me a drone. I've always wanted to fly, and I'm glad that you believe that I can. I've always wanted to fly with the birds and all thee way up to the stars and if I can give the impression than I can, haven't I done it already?
02 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: This is the goofiest game I’ve ever played. Most of it’s my fault so my apologies for any of you all who are irritated. A lot of it has to do with me just getting super busy right around when I joined and not having time to think through stuff. Also, I’m playing a little recklessly, which is new for me, and I know that pisses some folks off. Didn’t mean to ruin anybody’s good time.
05 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
07 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Hi all, since my feeling from the press is that most of us are really busy these days, I will let the retreats drag out so that there is sufficient time to get all communication across.

If anyone of you would prefer a pause, let us know ;)
07 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Russia, there is one retreat on the board, with only one possible retreat. Is there any reason why you are making all of us wait the full two days before entering your order?
07 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Sorry, actually didn't see the message right above, answering the question..
10 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Farewell Germany. Probably shouldn't have backed out of France when you had advanced position.
10 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Farwell, I thought that would be destroyed, but oh well. Good luck everyone!
16 Dec 20 UTC Finally
16 Dec 20 UTC God France you are fucking stupid. Thanks Russia for putting this game out of its misery - should've happened like 2 weeks ago though.
16 Dec 20 UTC Thanks for the game everyone.

Turkey, I dont think it was bad play from France - you should have been very friendly to him, both in press and on the board, so that France would trust you and start putting up insurance against me. In this situation, you pushed France closer and closer to me... Why would he turn to safeguard against his ally when you kept annoying and attacking him?

And then it was a simple question - I got a chance to solo, so I went for it. If you would keep me from a direct shot at it, I would stay loyal to France. I dont stab to get to 16... Bad coordination between I/T helped also (why are you covering Gre?!)...

England, thanks for your help ;)
16 Dec 20 UTC I am bouncing Gre because I wanted the game to end, there was no path to victory outside of you just drawing with everyone in it as is.

But lol. This was abysmal play from France and amounted to throwing the game to you. And Italy and I were begging France to flip for weeks to no avail because of retarded justifications like "I didn't bet any dipcoins on the game so I don't care."
16 Dec 20 UTC In that case thanks for bouncing Gre ;)
16 Dec 20 UTC LOL

Well played, Russia.
You did a great job of everyone helping you solo from season 1
16 Dec 20 UTC Congrats to Russia.
16 Dec 20 UTC Yes gg Russia, getting a solo isn't easy.

Hope to see you in another game England - need more people with your press style on webdip.
16 Dec 20 UTC Lol Turkey if you’re gonna be a dick at least quote me properly! I never said I didn’t care about this game. Your attitude is exactly why I didn’t wanna work with you - I can’t imagine how hard it would be to be around you IRL. What a fucking loser.

England, sorry for being stubborn early on. You’re a good player and a stand up guy. Same to you Italy. I know it was frustrating for y’all that I foolishly continued to trust Russia and dug my heels.

Russia it was good working with you and congrats on the w.
17 Dec 20 UTC Lol chief playing not to win is the definition of being a loser. And the goal here is 18 or preventing someone else from getting 18 - not making friends that you give a solo to on a silver platter.
17 Dec 20 UTC Happy to help, Russia, and well played. You evidently put in some good work to turn Germany and then France against me, your one clear enemy. Some lessons learned for me there for sure, especially from the early game.

No worries, France. We all make mistakes in this game. Not much you can do besides learn something for next time.

Hope to see you again too, Turkey. It's nice to have an opposite-side power that's actually interested in exchanging information, as people always like to say.
