01 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi everyone. I'd just like to apologize in advance if I'm not able to engage as much in the all-important diplomacy aspect of this game with each of you over the next few days. I'm finishing up my last round of college applications, and that's going to take a lot of time to revise and submit. Figured it'd be good to let you know.
01 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck with the applications! What are you hoping to study?

01 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello there, I am the new Turkey. Good luck to all, and especially Germany with his college applications!
01 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: First off, thanks to you guys. I'm planning on majoring in astrophysics right now. but I don't really have a #1 school right now. I've been lucky enough to get 4 acceptances so far, and I'm aiming as high as I can and seeing where I land.
02 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: oh that's cool, I'm currently doing mechatronic engineering and physics (double degree)
02 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1901: I got my PhD in astrophysics back in 2014 and spent some 6 years working in research before transitioning to the private sector earlier this year.

10 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1913: Sry for the hold up
12 Feb 21 UTC Autumn, 1913: The lines have been drawn. It will be difficult for either side to push now. I will take Marseilles this year and we’ll call this a draw

16 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1915: Can we wrap this up?
16 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1915: Trying to see if there’s any way to solo but I Don’t think there is
16 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1915: It has been a good game regardless. I'd taken a bit of a break from Diplomacy before jumping in on this and it has most certainly revitalized my love for the game. Thank you all!
16 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1915: Gonna try one thing and if it doesn’t work I’ll draw
16 Feb 21 UTC Spring, 1915: Good luck!
17 Feb 21 UTC Gg guys
17 Feb 21 UTC Good game everyone! It was a pleasure playing with you all, and I greatly appreciate the tactical insights that both England and Italy provided me.
17 Feb 21 UTC I wished you listened to me a bit more in the end.
Italy was always going for a solo which is fine for him, not for you to relax though.
I enjoyed playing the game nevertheless.

This position is I believe winnable and am happy that Italy didnt think there are chances.
17 Feb 21 UTC I did, I just got tired and would rather stick to my word of giving it that last shot and calling it quits
18 Feb 21 UTC I agree England — sadly for me I tend to be a little too trusting when it comes to Diplomacy. Or rather, because my strategic game is weaker than my diplomatic game I often go along with an ally that may backstab me simply because I see no other way out.
18 Feb 21 UTC I cant complain because your benevolence meant I could empower myself from a near death situation, just add a pinch of scepticism to your game and you're fine ;)
