Wow, Italy and Russia both stabbed Germany and will race to the solo! I'm betting on Russia!

Poor Germany got eviscerated. Looks like Russia is going up at least 3 and Italy will be lucky to get 1.

Some interesting stats there. Personally I don't like playing Russia but he's doing well!

1.1 Postponed while France was on a business trip?! What is this shit. Tell your boss you've got Diplomacy on and you can't! Bastards. Austria and Germany practically gone. Italy in limbo. Turkey dominates the south, no doubt pleased that England and France look to be at each other's throats. Play on.

1.2 Italy, Austria and England are all down and out. The PP gets colourful with the Grammar Police in attendance. Italy and Austria bicker. Not good for the soul that. Liven up people. It's meant to be fun!

1.3 Ah that's me again. Germany, Turkey and England look to be in trouble. France goes all cheeky and posts his moves in the Public Press in a defiant moment of rebellion. A historian does the rounds with some rather witty commentary but no-one knows who it is. And I assure you all, it really isn't me...

2.1 Italy, Russia and Germany are the casualties here. Ouch. But no wait. Germany clings on to a western triple and looks to be included in a 4 way draw? France puts pressure on Austria and Turkey to make up the foursome. Cheeky!

2.2 Russia, Turkey and England are out. France looks in trouble. Austria and Turkey bicker in the PP. (Always Austria isn't it?!). Maybe the league brings out the worst in people! I think we might be on for another 3 way draw here.

2.3 Finished. Please see the AAR

3.1 Turkey, Russia and Germany go. A/I vs E/F maybe? Does Austria fancy being the first to solo? No-one bickers in the public press. Shame. It is quite funny when you read it.

3.2 Oooft. Germany gets screwed over. Russia and Italy race for a solo? Or will they share a 2 way draw? Can't see any way back for E/F/G. Unless some very clever kingmaking happens. Minor PP bickers but nothing juicy.

3.3 Russia, Italy and England on the ropes. Hard to say of the remaining powers who has the advantage. It looks as though there is a solid T/A/G alliance that tries to put pressure on France into accepting a draw he isn't part of, using centre difference as a motivation. Clever. PP bickers? No, but what is this? I'm getting a little emotional... we have had our first PDL baby! Congratulations Germany!! A boy? Can I suggest "Michael" as a rather wonderful name. Named in honour of your PDL creator. I feel overwhelmed...

It's probably the worst stalemate line I have ever seen.

Yeah, disappointed in neither going for a solo.
