14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Great title BTW :)
26 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: Guys, what to do with England? It will be moments before he's in CD. Are we just going to let this happen? It's still a three SC power.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, Italy and I have been allied this far, but its clear the he's with Austria and I'm with Germany and neither of us plans to change that despite a lot of diplomacy. We're headed to a 4-way stalemate ... unless Italy changes his mind.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Are you suggesting I turn on my ally? Nonsense. If this lasts for too long I would be interested in a four way draw. But if an only if it lasts that long.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm ok with the 4 way draw.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Could we ask someone running the site to change the color of corsica to depend on marsailles and actually make sardinia green instead?
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy turning on me would be suicidal :) I agree with Germany.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ok, I voted. Everyone else in?
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Waiting for Russia to disband.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: No need, they're worth 0 points.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Not if we draw now. Points are split equally between all remaining players. In this phase Russia is still remaining.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ok, I'll wait.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Ok, vote to draw?
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I gave you a deal now stick to it! Two years of stalemate and I will draw. That is pretty generous coming from me, as I am sickened by the idea of a four way draw. To me it is a defeat.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: LOL
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Not sure what your point is....I hate 4-ways myself. But you will not flip, and I will not flip and while we can move fleets about a little, there is no way you can force the Pillars and no way I can break into your centers. But hey, nothing lost proving that point for a while....
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Why does no one persuade me? :( Am I not important?
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Heh, no, its that both you and Germany are head to head -- for Germany to stab me would require growing fleets without weakening the line which can't happen. And for you to stab Italy -- well look at where he can take unprotected centers if you even hinted at being less than loyal. Italy and France are the ones in positions to pull off an effective and game ending stab -- and we've both turned out to be honorable....what an odd outcome in Dip!
18 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1908: Ok, I voted. Everyone else in?
30 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1911: I am burning with desire to see how this plays out
30 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1911: Note to everyone, I will be on vacation tonight until monday. I should be able to make it to a wifi area. If not I will be having a friend enter my moves and relay information.
01 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1911: Burning with desire? It would take a miracle for you not to win -- your ruse was well played. I figured you were playing me, but what I didn't expect was that Austria was your puppet. I thought you would need to keep something in the east and not come west as hard as you were able to do. Now its over but for some years of useless defense.
05 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1913: Is Germany going to miss his move?
05 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1913: nope.
16 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: You guys know that 2-ways are unstable, right? One of you will be a "survive" with points.....pick a partner and a 3-way is in your interest.
16 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Unstable? The majority of my games are draws. How are we a survive with points? Sure it doesnt go on my win record. But I don't consider betraying an enemy at the very end a win. I only take a win if I stab them early on. Right now would be the last moment I would be willing to, and I am not in the position to do that. I never do threeways however. Europe isn't big enough for three powers.
16 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Huh? are you all doing crazy talk? Last time I checked there were like 32 SCs.... you only need 18 to win. First to 18 wins. It's mathematically impossible to 2 way tie.... one of those 2 left would have to win.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Have you gone mad, or do you not considering grabbing 17 sc's and voting draw a tie?
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: yeah, that's a tie. it would also mean there are 3 player left, right?
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Two? 17 and 17 is an even split.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: There are 34 centers.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Always go for the win.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Wins pulled by stabs at this point in the game are unsightly .
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: unsightly?? it's web diplomacy - they're expected. I think you're just scared because Austria is going to win.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: let's see - how should austria win... probably Venice - Rome, Armenia - Ankara and Moscow - St. P.

Boom 18, and Italy was the sucker.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: And I refuse not to be. There is a point in which I sacrifice completely following Realpolitik to stick with Christian morals. I know very well it is the game of Diplomacy.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: eh, whatever, you're just jealous you didn't get the win.

GG Austria
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Remember a little tiff about the inherent instability of 2-ways... Let me add my congratulations to Austria, that was nicely played. Italy fulfilled his role as agitator while you plugged along pulling the strings. Adroitly done.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Nicely played? He sent three units down to take a quick win because I was undefended. 2-ways are only unstable because people believe they are.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: I must give Italy the credit of being the shrewd mastermind of our alliance. I'm just the guy going for a dirty stab. Don't hate me!
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: When someone naively bares their throat, is it the wolf's fault when he bites...he is only fulfilling his nature. Austria is no more duplicitous than Italy had been -- he was just wise enough to guard himself.
17 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: He never guarded himself, but he took the opportunity of betrayal when he wanted. What can I say, it is the wolfs nature to bite. But I am more the dragon
18 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1917: Winter is coming.
20 Apr 12 UTC I just started watching that (game of thrones). quite good.
20 Apr 12 UTC Yes indeed. I saw the first season and now we're following the series with a group of people. Great series overall tho the sex isn't always 'functional' for the story.
20 Apr 12 UTC function? who cares, it's pure eye candy!
20 Apr 12 UTC Books are better. I hadn't realized how much better until I went back to them between the series. All the stuff going on inside of their heads is lost in the show. But I have to admit the sex is way better on film.
22 Apr 12 UTC Sex is for lovers who give their lives to each other in marriage.
22 Apr 12 UTC Agreed, but its still fun to watch. Educational even.
23 Apr 12 UTC An unlikely outcome....and well earned.
