18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Libya]:yeah sucks to be me Oz, says the one with even fewer supply centres and getting owned faster by Antarctica...
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Libya]:well thanks anyway Brazil, what about anyone else?
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Kenya]:Guys, if someone was to want to attack me, don't you think it would probably be a good idea for them to keep that private so that I don't move to counter said attack? I don't know, but that is strategically what I would do. But carry on.
18 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Ghana]:lol
19 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2004: [Libya]:but we were expecting almost anyone to attack you and besides I'm sure the potential attacker would've inboxed me or Ghana anyway. But I guess no one minds Kenya (Vlad the Lennonator) from winning then?
21 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Kenya]:China, you sure have lucked out with the Russian and Indian CDs.
21 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [China]:I didnt know india left sweet
21 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Europe]:Way to bring it to his attention Kenya!
21 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Kenya]:Oops. I always assume that everyone is as observant as me.
23 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Libya]:well China, quickly dominate the rest of India please so that you can squash Kenya and keep me alive.
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Kenya]:India has a new player now.
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Brazil]:And China missed the Build phase.
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Libya]:not so good then :/
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Kenya]:Sorry man.
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Kenya]:/ woman. But odds say it is probably man.
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [China]:ih shitt
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Libya]:Yeah you'r right lol, im a man
23 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Kenya]:I figured. I think there was a forum post once where it was determined that something like >90% of people on this site are men.
26 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:how come Ghana's name hasn't been crossed off? Wasn't he defeated just then?
26 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Kenya]:Not officially... Not until the end of the retreats phase when his army is forced to disband, because as of now the army is still retreating.
28 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2006: [Kenya]:What is with all of these major players in the game CDing? Frustrates me to no end when people leave a game.
28 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2006: [Libya]:Ikr, I never leave. besides I don't know how to lol
29 Oct 13 UTC Spring, 2006: [Kenya]:To leave you have to miss two consecutive turns. China has not submitted moves since the Spring phase of 2005.
31 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Brazil]:For the first time in World Dip, I see European become major power in the board.
31 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Libya]:lol, that might not be so for long once Kenya reaches Europe. Also for most of the Eastern powers and Europe they were lucky for China's untimely surrendering.
31 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Europe's always fared better than Libya and Near-East in the few I've played. Sorry to say those two seem unwinnable.

As you say, untimely departures are lucky for some. I guess that's the drawback of low stakes games.
31 Oct 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Libya]:I know
01 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 2007: [Libya]:lol Russia, probably the only player nowhere near any of the chaos happening around the board.
04 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Ghana]:MY EYES
04 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:Its beautiful eh?
04 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Ghana]:Ahah yes, yellow is my favorite color :D
04 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:If I had to pick a colour on the map simply for visual stimulation I would pick Europe's blue.
04 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Ghana]:Anyway, it's fun to note how the ones who are in the best positions now are the countries who attacked everyone in their continent. It's nothing like standard diplomacy.
05 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Libya]:true, kinds sucks ):
05 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Brazil]:Good bye all.
07 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Libya]:Well that's me gone, obviously I was an annoyance to both Kenya and europe (surprising) but I'm glad and lucky that I was one of the 8 players before I died (6 actual players)
07 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Kenya]:You put up a great fight Libya, it was fun to fight against you.
07 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Good job Libya, always more enjoyable when players fight until the end.
07 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [India]:This is my first attempt at this variant anything I should know?
07 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Libya]:Don't trust ANYONE
08 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Frozen-Antarctica]:This variant can be fun, but Libya is right. I'd start a fresh game if you want to learn how it works. Also, you can trust all of us.
08 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Argentina]:Yeah sure! I can trust you!!! Ahh Ahhh Ahhh, are you kidding? No you are serious :(
11 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [Libya]:lol
13 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Pacific-Russia]:Long game ehh
13 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Pacific-Russia]:Not for me of course but still
17 Nov 13 UTC [Kenya]:We did it folks. One crazy game. Now lets wait for the destroys and call this one a draw.
17 Nov 13 UTC [Libya]:no way! Fight to the death! I'm now a spectator and like what I'm seeing
17 Nov 13 UTC [Libya]:wow Kenya in shanghai, Antarctica in Canton and Eastern India, Europe in Manchuria and the USA in Japan. This is practically a parallel world now
17 Nov 13 UTC [Libya]:West Canada in Japan*
17 Nov 13 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Good game. Thanks everyone. Hopefully not so many NMRs next time.
