This, of course, is the only reason that you rejected the draw

This, of course, is pure fantasy

This, of course, has already been done quite involuntarily - there is simply no combination of moves that can prevent Austria from eating Kiel and Berlin this year

I will never understand why some imply that it is ignoble to deny a draw that does not include you, even if the end is nigh. It is not, in my opinion, "better" to end the game with a loss that spares your homeland than to be utterly destroyed. He could theoretically flip one of the three of you and etch out his own survival. It is almost certainly not going to happen, but it's his gamble to take.

Of course, people like taking lame draws on this site, so I'm not surprised that people want it to happen again.

This, of course, is why you are so upset about this. This is Austria's game to lose.

Nah. I just get bored when the outcome becomes completely predictable. At that point I prefer to turn my attention to a new game...

Yeah, I'm actually being completely honest here. I have a short attention span. I LOVE the beginning of a dip game - coming up with a plan, building alliances, growing. But I do find as it draws toward an end I get REALLY itchy for it to wind down... I'll either throw caution to the wind and make a scramble for solo, or I'll be a draw-monger and try to get the thing settled...
