Lumping me in with Felix (who I like and admire as a Dip player) is lame. We're different.

If you go back and check, you'll see that I've never (I don't think..I'd need to check as well) thrown a game for a solo...although I've been HELPED to GO solo...more than once. And in this game, I don't see it as throwing a game but rather helping to decide a winner...which is over-stating it a bit since, as Trout said, its really HIS good play that sealed this game. My move just helped move the game to quicker end.

So why "let" someone solo...what was my motivation this time?

Your play. Allowing you into a draw (if possible) would basically help you achieve a win...and at the end of the day, I thought Trout "deserved" a win over you. You did nothing to build an allaince or build trust with anyone except the player that you had in your pocket from the start...then about 3 years too late, you ASSUMED everyone you'd stabbed (or helped GET stabbed) all game would help you stop Trout.

You're a very talented player, Stephen...more talented than me but THAT is your blind spot. You assume people SHOULD play the way you play...and assume that you're playing well all the time...and assume that you don't need anyone else but your one key ally that you pick at the start of the game.

At the end of the day, I play to either achieve a win for myself or to make damm sure someone else does not get one.

Only you and Felix seem to play to let other people win.

Personally I hate that type of play. and i hate playung against those players.

Enough Said.

Well, my friend...that's your problem. As an Aussie brother of mine might say "Build a bridge...and get over it".

"In your mind" being the operative phrase here.

Do you ever feel accountable for your own actions?

This can be considered final until the game ends.

.ExternalClass DIV {} Hi all,

I'm proposing a Trout solo. We can play out the string but he'll get it by next year....outside chance two more years...

Can we all call uncle? Trout's played a helleva game!

Yeah...Fletch just threw the game to Trout. I assure you that I will spend the few remaining units I have to Trout and make sure that I attack Fletch. That was really pretty dumb. There is NO WAY that you can get a part of a two-way draw...what were you thinking?

Yes, I am vindictive and yes, I will gladly ensure that Trout wins. Stupid stupid boy.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
