I've not got a lot to say in my end of game statement. I took over France in a pretty thankless position, and it didn't get much better. In fact I'm amazed at getting a survival out of the game. Germany played an excellent game, and deserved the solo.

Many thanks to Darryl for GMing. Patience of a saint is best description really, given the number of delays (I'll hold my hand up to causing a couple!). Staggeringly unfair comments from a bitter Austria...

I'm not sure what sort of reaction you were
expecting to get from me.  I am perty sure I have done
nothing that was not in my House Rules . . . except to try
and accomodate all of you.  By all means, the
DiplomaticCorp site is always on the look out for new
GM's, feel free to take a wack at GM'ing

Best Regards,

An expected ending - vengeful, petty, overwrought. 
One of the worst online diplomacy experiences I've ever
had.  Diplomaticorp is broken.  You were a bully,
Darryl.  Go back to playing and leave the GMing to someone

DC270: German Solo!


I have not heard from Dan (Austria); either in response to
the public vote for a German Solo or with order for the
current season.  However, as Dan has now missed two
deadlines, house rules are that I replace him.  Still, due
to the fact that Germany can occupy two supplies this season
. . . and I see no way a new Austria would be able to change
the out come, I am reluctant to get a replacement just to
end the game the way we all know it will end anyway.

Therefore, I have decided to remove Austria from the game
and call it a unanimous vote for the German Solo. 
Congratulations, Joe on the victory.

At this point it is of interest to hear how the game
developed for each of you in End-of-Game statements.  If
you are not familiar with this, please take the time to
review the game (I have attached the dpy file for your use,
or you can see the progression of the game by using the
slide show feature on the DiplomaticCorp site).  Try to
remember where key actions occurred during the game and
explain why you did what you did . . . when you did it (I
hope that makes sense).  Also, try to view things from the
view of the other players who will be interested in why you
stabbed them when you did . . . or why you did not follow a
particular agreement or another.  If you were with this
game from the beginning, remember that some action you took
early in the game will be of interest to others as well; so,
don't just look at the last few years but all the way
back to the beginning . . . if possible.  If you are a
replacement player, please explain the situation when you
joined the game and what influenced you to play the way you
did . . . or didn't.

Congratulations again to Joe on the German Solo victory and
I look forward to reading your EOG Statements.

Darryl (GM: DC270)
