15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Anyway, i better be careful not to make enemies before the game even gets going. Lets go..!
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: This part of your strategy, fig? Get everyone against Germany while you silently set up world domination?
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: haha, subliminal messaging through the Global chat.
What would you do if i said 'yes it is'? :D
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: I'd say, "hey look, everyone, he admitted it!"
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: O dere, best change tack then. Erm...
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: doublethinking is a kid play here...
I should ask help of a psychologist besides strategists...
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Are you saying I'm mentally unstable?
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: no, I meant to say I myself need the help of a psychologist to interpret double-triple thinking behind these very sublte messages here.
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: I just woke up so I'm not much for first thinking lest alone all this double-triple thinking. So I think I'm just going to openly declare war on England. He'll never suspect a thing...
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: Thanks a lot
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: So much love in this game!
15 Apr 08 UTC Spring, 1901: will it last though...
16 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: If being bent over is love, then there's plenty of it to be had at this end. *shakes fist menacingly at Italy*
16 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: Awww Russia stopped my Yellow Sub from going to Black Sea. I was totally going to have it pop up in Liverpool. lol!
16 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well, you're taking it well enough... let's hope the Viennese are as friendly. ; )

Not that I'm going to move to Vienna... *cough* Is he serious?! Ooooh!
16 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy and Russia, I warned you both what the consequences would be if you attacked Austria. I think I made myself pretty clear that Germany considers any attack on Austria an attack on itself and, as such, will be punishing you both immediately.

Let this be a warning to any who would attack Austria, Germany will not stand idly by.
16 Apr 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: :) there's the love!
06 May 08 UTC Spring, 1906: I'd just like to say I'm very sorry I missed another turn people, it was not intentional!
07 May 08 UTC Spring, 1906: nevertheless (i.e. nothwithstanding some missed moves) , it's interesting that all seven powers are still playing with no less than three SCs each in autumn 1906.
09 May 08 UTC Spring, 1907: Am I seeing things or does Russia have too many units?
09 May 08 UTC Spring, 1907: The explosion in StP should be over the fleet, but because of a map-drawing error its over the center. This only occurs when you destroy a fleet in a dual-coast location. However, confirmation of StP's non-existence would be useful for those of you near!
09 May 08 UTC Spring, 1907: I confirm I have four units.
You haver also probably noted that arrows directed to StP point at the centre of the province, not at either coast.
11 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1907:
16 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just to say, the beaches in Southern Spain are lovely at this time of the year, and that it was entirely intentional that the British monarchy have chosen to move to these warmer territories. Their actions had absolutely nothing to do with the multitude of French ships around the shoreline.
16 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1908: wise decision of the English monarchy.
19 May 08 UTC Spring, 1909: Sorry all... I haven't been able to log on since Thursday. It was my birthday yesterday and my Mom surprised me and took me white water rafting. Terribly sorry to have been absent from the game for a while. I'm back now and ready to go.
19 May 08 UTC Spring, 1909: so happy birthday/best wishes!
19 May 08 UTC Spring, 1909: HAPPY BIRTHDAY :D
19 May 08 UTC Spring, 1909: Many happy returns!
19 May 08 UTC Spring, 1909: Happy Birthday! Sounds like one heck of a great surprise.
21 May 08 UTC Spring, 1910: *sits in eager anticipation*
21 May 08 UTC Spring, 1910: *gets in last message*
21 May 08 UTC Spring, 1910: *doesn't like the result!*
24 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1910: "You have been defeated in this game. Find other games to join here.
Better luck next time!"

Good game fella's. I'm honored to be the first one eliminated in the finals of the first phpdiplomacy tournament (of the Grand Festive type).

I think I deserved it though. Aside from some other rookie mistakes, I had made one colossal error that changed the game...I think.

No matter, I am honored to have competed against such talent. :) Thank you. I'm eager to see who will win.
24 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1910: I consider points to be like the regular season and the tournament to be like the playoffs.
Remember that you are still one of the top players on the site to have made it here.
27 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well, I guess this is goodbye then. This will be an interesting game to follow, but as I am effectively out and there is nothing I can see that would save me I feel it would be rude of me to send out my views on what will come next. Apart from that, I'm sure several of you have seen the same I have.
Well played in getting here and probably well played in this game, only you know how you've actually done. As Austria said, nice to play against you, see you soon.
Yours,
Figlesquidge
27 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1911:
27 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1911: See you in future games. Congrats on advancing to the finals.
05 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: Well played, Italy. Sad to see you disappear with such alarming haste!

Now that only three of us remain (and hence less negotiations are likely to take place) is any chance we could finalise orders before the end of a phase? In just over a fortnight my Internet access might get a bit patchy so it would be good if the game could reach a natural conclusion by round about then. Some early finalising (where possible) will make that more likely.
Thanks.
05 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: Great game all. It's been a pleasure to play with you all, and to participate in the finals. Look around, these are some of the most talented Diplomacy players this site has to offer. =)

See you in other games, other tournaments, and perhaps other finals.

I will resign myself to a comfortable 4th place finish.
05 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: You had obviously a good part in making this game interesting and enjoyable. Good luck for future games!
05 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: I'm still interested in the outcome of this game. If nobody minds, I'll probably still post occasionally here in the global chat, but I'll steer clear of private chat with any of the remaining players.

Is that alright? Or should I just shut up completely?
05 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1914: I've certainly no problem with you continuing to post here. Your comments would be most welcome.
12 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1916: I totally forgot to attack Vienna and Rumania. Can I have a do over? :)
19 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1921: I can't believe that the Finals was taken by a Juggernaut... I thought we were better than that. =P
19 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1921: I bet if we repeated a dozen times a finals game, it could end in a dozen completely different outcomes.
These games, with such intense fight and press, are like chaotic systems. A slight change in a single event at a critical point of the game could have changed the whole final outcome.
19 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1921: Hehehehe, pwned.

Good game everyone!
20 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1921: Yeah, great game all. I'm honoured to have participated in the finals.
21 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1922: I warned you all :P
Well played you two, and although less well played to the rest of us, it's still an achievement to get here!
21 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1922: Don't draw it...
