So, Austria has betrayed me immediately after agreeing to a non-agression pact.

I have lost a supply depot.  With only two depots and two units, I am outmatched more than 2 to 1. 

Therefore, I am surrendering and disbanding all my units.


Austria will have unchallenged access to all south western Europe.
Yes this is a rage quit but hey, I see no victory for me so why bother going on?  I thought about fighting until the end so everyone else could fight him while he was distracted but you wouldn't.  I suspect you'd all have me removed quickly so I say "Enjoy Parsifal Rule".

Sorry to hear that. I mean, yeah you got fucked over, but someone has to fuck over someone else in this game. I just saw an opportunity and took it.

Yeah well, I just hate being fucked over in the second turn, making the game impossible for me to win.
If we could make units at any supply depot then it would be different.

Hey, how do I disband the rest of my army?  I could only disband one last round. 

And surrender? How do I do that?

Dunno if you can. We may have to fight it out whether you like it or not.

Well fine.  Where do you want my armies so they don't interfere with your conquest?

It may be a pyrrhic victory but give the bastard a bloody nose as you go down, don't be remembered by your people as the ruler that rolled over, death to the invader!
Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

Can't.  I ran the sandboxes.  Nothing I do will take a territory.  Italy will be gone by winter of 1903. (3 turns)

ok, first of all, the french asked us to come to paris, ok?  and second of all what we do or don't do in france is none of your beeswax.  so i dunno why any of you would insinuate, or were maybe going to insinuate, that we're taking over france, because we're not, so stop yapping about it.

i mean i feel like one of you was going to start yapping about it, so let's just nip that right in the bud.  no one is taking over france.  we're just, you know, we're kicking it over here for a bit, no big deal.

i don't have to justify myself to you people.

So, being landlocked and literally every player in a better position (including France who is an NPC) I thought I'd try to get Germany and Austria to fight by making up some fake communications to hint that we're in an alliance to secretly take down Germany but it has occurred to me that, well... no one would believe it.   Diplomacy, as I've learned, is a game that requires more talking than actual unit movement.  No one but Austria wants to talk to me and even that is mostly dismissals of any proposal or pleads.  And with good reason, obviously.  So, I've decided, out of sheer boredom, to post the entirety of our communications.  It is honest, true, and complete.  Parsifal can confirm.



Sadly, I can't surrender or disband units.  Apparently the game's creators felt that players would leave if they're losing and no one would want to replace them.  Why this is a bad thing, I'm not sure.  Truth is, I'm out of options.  I tried taking Mun which would have given me 1 extra unit for a few turns that would have helped but that was blocked.  Now, I'm unable to take any land unless someone decides to not defend, which silly since everyone has enough units to defend all their territories.

So, here are my current plans:

I will be moving my unit out of Rom to Tus.  Austria will be moving from ION to Nap and take that.  He'll hold Venice to ensure I don't backstab, which is understandable.  I'll move my unit from Tyr to Boh.
In Fall, I'll move from Tus to Pie and from Boh to Gal.  Once there, Austria will move from Ven to Rom, Tri to Ven, and probably Bud to Tri. 
Then Italy will finally be removed from the game.

To surrender, click the drop-down victory conditions for the turn and select "surrender" before submitting the order.
I did.  It requires everyone else to choose victoryXplayers winning  or surrender and with two AIas, that won't happen.

Also, I know I was screwed from round 2.  I'm still looking forward to the next game.

God fucking damnit, parsifal?  Why can't you take the mother fucking land I'm fucking giving you?

Are you TRYING to keep me alive so I can attack someone for you?

And why in God's name would do an action that isn't going to work?  I TOLD YOU where I was goin but no, you just HAD to train move north.

You said you were going to keep your armies where they were before, and then did something different. I just assumed you were lying again.

Even if I was, you made no attempt to get Napal.  An easy state to get.  And why block Boh? 

So now, you can't take everything by winter.  So now I'm alive for another year.  Great...

Well, at least now everyone can be suspicious as to why you're not taking italy.


Look, you asked why I was moving up, what my strategy is well, I have none.  I'm moving pointlessly.  I can only do something if I get help but no one is stupid enough to help so I'm waiting for you to finish me off.  A task you could have done by now if you wanted.
