27 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck to all! And godspeed.
27 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone. It will be a pleasure playing with you.
28 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck to everyone.
28 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'd be willing to cancel if the CD countries give us too much of an advantage over austria.
01 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I was hoping higher bets would decrease the amount of CDs.
01 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: you'd think, right?
01 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah, truly bizarre.
01 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I really, really like the high stakes aspect of the game, but with CDs this is ridiculous. I say we draw and take 35 points apiece, then start a new game with 100 points as bet.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'd have no objection to a draw, but CDs are always a problem so we may not get five votes for it.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'll vote draw. What typically happens is that everyone will put in a draw vote after a turn or two of playing with CDs. It would be nice to make a commitment now, for the sake of everyone else, whether or not we will be playing this one out.
02 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: sounds good.
03 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: I guess we are missing England now... @Turkey and Russia, do you think this is worth playing out? I am fine with continuing this game but it would be nice to get a commitment before devoting more time to this game.
03 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Turkey is here to fight -- but of course, if England and Russia also want peace, we will not stand in the way.
03 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: I'll be keeping the draw vote through the duration of the game. Whether or not the other players do as well is up to them, i'm fine with whatever
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: This is such a strange game. I'm telling you all, let's draw and take home a profit
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Russia-- what are your thoughts? Obviously you have the upper hand here. But if you haven't hit draw by winter, I'm removing my draw flag.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Well, the problem for me is that countries are drawn based on previous game finishes so a draw sucks for a Russian player in general (since Russia is a nice country to draw). I am inclined to play it out since the person who is at a real disadvantage is Germany, but he's gone and it's his own fault. I am certainly open to a draw eventually but I don't think a 7-player equal draw is the right way to go for any of the remaining players since it just helps Germany.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: ah i see. that must be why i never draw italy.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: I think the way it works is when you start a new game, it calculates the countries you have previously finished games with and works out the correct probabilities to balance in the long-term. For instance, say you have concluded 6 games, and drawn England twice, France three times, Italy once--you'd be much more likely to draw Austria, Russia, Turkey, or Germany than France.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: right. well, regardless, i still think we should draw after germany CDs
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: I guess I am still confused about why. There is still so much excitement ahead. There are several strong players and a decent sized pot. There isn't a dominant alliance (Turkey and Austria look the strongest) and it's really anyone's game.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: I'm fine with playing it out, I'd just rather we all decide now if that's what we intend to do.
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Well, given that it takes unanimity to draw, it sounds like we've decided to play it out. Tally-ho!
04 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Draw withdrawn. Let's play this out and have some fun.
05 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1902: We could also cancel this game.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: All right, this is fucking ridiculous. Draw this game.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oops.
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ho ho ! The lion sleeps to-night!
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: guuuuuys
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: LOL at Turkey!
13 Mar 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: I've always been up for a draw and will put my draw back on. This game has been rather silly.
14 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1905: oh good. england should jump on it soon
14 Mar 13 UTC Spring, 1905: How many consecutive phases must one miss before they get listed as "left"? Do players in that situation get included or excluded from draws?
14 Mar 13 UTC All - if anyone has interest in playing another 100 point anon game, join "Matrix Domination: Take 2" ... Look forward to seeing you all there.
