Please refrain from public cheating accusations. I understand you're kidding, but it's not allowed.

Sorry about that. That was basically the perfect position for eliminating players though, with both stalemate lines already established. Imo the only play there was to throw to Turkey at the first sign of France agreeing to kill you, but I don't really remember if there was an opportunity for that

Not really mad about it, it was a good method to signal in GB that you want to reduce the number of people in a draw. There was a one turn gap in which I could have tried to sake things up, but I was newer to the game then and went for the more "safer" play (which was essentially doing nothing)

Observe my reaching a 2-way draw, as Austria, with Germany:

I would consider that match a fairly high-level game, as far as that goes.

Interesting story, the German player was someone I had mentored!

Had to fight through a brutal CD by another player to get to it, but here it is:

You also had the aid of an opponent who didn't realize dropped players weren't replaced with bots on this site ;)
