The champion of the fourth grand melee was Dee (Russia)

I was hoping for David Schwimmer... just so I could start cutting fences and letting cows out.

I can't believe you people backed out on killing the fuck out of Courtney Cox...

You're lucky, Dee. Someday I'll find people willing to join the cause AGAINST logic... simply because... logically... you always win... thus we must use anti-logic mixed with A GIANT BALLSACK. I kinda wish you would join my anti-Dee campaign... THEN we could rock... you...

You're just lazy with the actual Diplomacy, Mike.

Work out a scenario in which you and allies take me out, and it's mutually beneficial for all participants, and I'd be sidelined quickly! But even then, it'd work out better for you to simply work with me. Look at how long it took Dave and Steve to take you down. If you'd simply accepted my opening offer, you'd currently have the bulk of Germany, pushing most of France, and it'd be a three person race between you, me, and Kang.

Well if I have time to be around in a future game I think you're one of the few reliable people. :D

I'll always be lazy with Diplo. People are too fickle so it's better, imo, to be a zealot and just say fuck it.

Sorry you didn't get to be Ross.

What's this about letting cows out? I must have missed that episode.


From my perspective, it looks like it comes down to alliance management. Sure, if someone where willing to do the wheeling and dealing, browbeating, and occasional arm-twisting needed to herd the remaining players into a Grand Alliance against Russia, they could do it. And they might even win.

It seems that Dee is the person with the most skill at that dealing and browbeating, however, leaving the remaining players in a bit of a dilemma. It'll be interesting to see if anyone else can pull it off. I tried to form a Grand Alliance in Dip III, but failed. It's not an easy task.

If Sobel were my CO, I'd probably plan to shoot him as soon as a battle started too...

And great, Steve. Put a big target on my face why don't you!

I don't know everyone in the game as well as you do, but can they really be that blind to the situation? :|
