27 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1998: I always choose the wrong time to join a game like this :-D
27 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1998: quite a bad timing :-) but thanks to join in, so the game can go on!

18 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 2005: I have been insulted in private messages, and I have no desire to play in these conditions. This is a game, I am not here to be bullied.
My Draw vote is in. Please, enter yours and let's end it.
19 Jan 21 UTC Upon request from other players here is my reason why I do not want to play with certain type of player. I am copy-pasting France's message:
"Autumn, 2005: IDGAF! You are just retarded and hopefully Ukraine takes your wide open provinces - I've promised them the rest of Italy and everything you own."
I am not afraid of this kind of threat inside the game frame. I am just not willing to stay here to be insulted. I repeat please let's Draw.
19 Jan 21 UTC Can we be privy to the message that preceded the french answer?
19 Jan 21 UTC A better plan is to get everyone to gang up on France :-)
19 Jan 21 UTC You are welcome to mute me if you find my press offensive, Egypt. Sorry that your planned stab didn't work out and now you're pouting and having a fit.
19 Jan 21 UTC to play with bully is no plan at all in my record.
Here is the whole exchange. For the record, France and I plotted to take out Italy, I started and much later, France joined in, taking the bigger share and building fleet, which I told him I would see as a threat.

(EGY) Sun 10 PM Autumn -> look where are your fleet! :D
so yes, I position to stale mate you: west Sah S MOr, Libya S Alger; Malt S Tun; Ion s Naple. that's not attacking you, don't talk to me like if I was a fool. You are attacking me + positioning yourself for a north offensive.
If you are pissed because I see through your scheme and I am rallying the board against the threat of a French solo, you can only blame yourself, I warned you that useless fleet built would be taken for the threat which they are.
(EGY) Sun 10 PM Autumn, 2005: Instead of a 3way we might end up in a 5 way. but I am not so much running after "coins", I have quite a lot of them...

(FRA) Sun 11 PM Autumn, 2005: Lol no, England doesn't believe you, and no one else is really a threat to me so IDGAF
Sun 11 PM Autumn, 2005: You are just retarded and hopefully Ukraine takes your wide open provinces - I've promised them the rest of Italy and everything you own.
Sun 11 PM Autumn, 2005: You're just upset I built fleets to hold you off while it was clearly your plan the whole time to get me to piss off Italy and then you swarm your units to my border. Sad!

(EGY) Sun 11 PM Autumn, 2005: I am retarded?
ups.
19 Jan 21 UTC The guy just doesn't like to be called retarded, can you blame him?
I'm interested in the message that came before France had a fit of his own.
19 Jan 21 UTC Well France in all honesty you stabbed in wrong order.
First Poland, then Italy (and I would continue to be wide open) when you're a bit more advanced east, and voila you got a genuine solo push.
But building in por and bar is kinda useless for that.
19 Jan 21 UTC "But building in por and bar is kinda useless for that." -> Hence my assessment of Egypt's intelligence.
19 Jan 21 UTC Having said that, the point is wide off the mark and the main focus is on the fact you called a guy retarded for what, expressing his opinion in a civil manner?
Not only does he not deserve the grief, he is most likely right in his analysis to boot.
19 Jan 21 UTC I'm just here to eat popcorn and watch the fun.
19 Jan 21 UTC Hey man I get you in a way, insults are not something I avoid when frustrated by someones lack of logical prowess, be more subtle in the future.
Tell him his brain is like a fine ementaler cheese or something like that.
Retarded is just to crude and genuinely offensive, you never know who has a mentally disabled member of family for example.
19 Jan 21 UTC The government of Russia-in-exile suggests that everyone team up against the French for the usage of offensive language. It will be a great bonding experience for the other four powers.
19 Jan 21 UTC If someone is genuinely offended they're welcome to reach out to me in private, which Egypt never did. Airing this out in public is solely designed to influence the game.

All this appears to be is a ploy by the Poland/Ukraine/Egypt alliance to whittle me and presumably then whittle England.
19 Jan 21 UTC Russia's a firestarter, twisted instigator!
Love it :-)
19 Jan 21 UTC When someone uses expressions such as idgaf and retarded you dont reach out to him.
19 Jan 21 UTC I just ask a Draw. Not a plot against France.
I do not need to enter talk with bullies.
19 Jan 21 UTC "When someone uses expressions such as idgaf and retarded you dont reach out to him." My point, exactly. I didn't call a Mod neither. I just ask for a 6 way draw and let it finish here.
19 Jan 21 UTC Nice prodigy reference!
19 Jan 21 UTC Glad you enjoyed it Siberia :-)
Guys dont let this fizzle out so soon, airing dirty laundry in public is the best part. And it does wonders for cotton and wool.
19 Jan 21 UTC I am willing to draw
19 Jan 21 UTC thanks Poland.
@Italy I asked it very decently without pointing finger and making a drama :-D then people are thirsty for blood and explanations :)
19 Jan 21 UTC Its like coca cola, more you drink it - stronger the thirst.
20 Jan 21 UTC 1 draw vote from ukr! Who will be the last draw
20 Jan 21 UTC I'm fine with a draw.
20 Jan 21 UTC France?
20 Jan 21 UTC very nice game, ggame everyone!
20 Jan 21 UTC Poor France must have had a very rough day, normally he is a thoroughly nice bloke, such as myself.
20 Jan 21 UTC You missed the /s on the end of that
20 Jan 21 UTC I had to google that.
20 Jan 21 UTC Agreed. I find it a little surprising. Nevertheless, GG everyone.
20 Jan 21 UTC Sarcasm is for englishmen, I'm dead serious and demand to be treated as such!
20 Jan 21 UTC Gg my person is grateful for the avoidance of guillotine.
20 Jan 21 UTC The Russian government in exile is disappointed in the lack of warmongering
20 Jan 21 UTC GG guys. thanks for the Draw
20 Jan 21 UTC GG
