11 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm going full out
13 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Last night a close relative of mine passed away after lying on her deathbed for about two weeks. Later the same night my mother had a serious car accident when returning from there.
So please understand that i have, as of about some hours ago, lost every interest in this game or any other ongoing games at the moment. I will offer Draw/Cancel/Pause and leave it to you what to make of it. Maybe i will make it and enter orders that make a minimum amount of sense, maybe not. What i can say for sure is that i will hardly be around for the next week or two.
13 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Ouch. I would offer my condolences, but I am not sure he would see them. Honestly, that is too much reality for here, as this is generally an escape from reality for the most part -- at least for me. If drawing or canceling were in some way a gesture he would take as a small show of sympathy, I am all for it. I will put in my orders accordingly. Otherwise there are Mods present to pause the game and our host can solicit a replacement. I am not interested in a perma-pause, though... Just hate it when the real world imposes on the haven of insanity...
13 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry to hear about the run of bad luck and hope everything turns out alright for you and your family.

Even though I'm well on my way to a solo, I'll offer my draw vote but will gladly go along with the wishes of the board if we want to find a sub.
13 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks to whoever caught this and force-paused, I was going to when I woke up. We'll figure out how to resolve this later but yes no doubt pause it now.

I'm sure with my clout I can find a replacement ;) so no worries there, just take a time out for a day or so fellas, we'll find a replacement shortly if Austria needs it.

I hope you and yours will be ok, Austria, that's gotta be really hard.
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Is this back on?
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: well we're unpaused, you're welcome not to move though :^)
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, I am boycotting... Eden still sucks to be sure, though...
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: oh i agree, let's not dance around it, dude is straight up trouble.
22 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: yeah... one shady lady... the bar has truly been lowered for Mods... and he is not even grateful that I am throwing this game just for him... the lack of love around here is A-Palling
24 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Wellll shit
24 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: well...
24 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I got pretty screwed too :/
25 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I knew it!!!
27 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: charge of the draw brigade
27 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Lol Italy finally decides to join in on some of the fun....
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Where did all the fun juice go? Well, it was a good concept, I thought... if not killed by circumstance and fun play...probably should not have mixed business with pleasure and kept the bitch slapping of Eden in the public forums... is "bitch slapped" truly an insult when you truly are a little bitch? Seems a legitimate academic question to me (if a Mod falls in the forest... would anyone care?).
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Bitch slapping itself is not an insult. I always thought it is rather something you do.
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Truly something to do... with relish... but when told that you have been bitch slapped, 'tis clearly an insult unless you believe yourself to indeed be a little bitch well deserved of a slap...
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Did this game switch to seven day phases? Because this is taking forever.
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Did Germany grow a vag? Because he's being quite bitchy. :P
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Being balls deep in France would imply otherwise.
28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Damn

28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Germany seems to be swinging both ways -- a little Paris, a little Warsaw... bi-curious I would say...
28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Damn

30 Apr 14 UTC I see the banter is pettering out... England... I beseech you to End The Pain... it was a good attempt at an interesting concept, though there was not enough witty humiliation of PE for my taste...
30 Apr 14 UTC The pain....it is too much
30 Apr 14 UTC Well, don't clench so hard... just ease it on in... ask PE... he knows all about taking it like a champ "sure, I would be happy to be a Mod!"
30 Apr 14 UTC Do people seriously want a draw or is this just more messing around?
30 Apr 14 UTC I had assumed it was a joke. But people seem to be taking it pretty seriously.
30 Apr 14 UTC I realize this is breaking my, no talking about the game policy. I'm just a little bit confused.
30 Apr 14 UTC We want a draw yes, ignore the comic presentation of it..
30 Apr 14 UTC I mean, I think Russia and I just want to stop getting raped.

Don't support rape. Draw the game
30 Apr 14 UTC We want a draw yes, ignore the comic presentation of it..
30 Apr 14 UTC This is what happens if you don't draw:
I will resist you with my plentiful baguettes avec le anal revanchism.
Germoney will anschluss your ass.
30 Apr 14 UTC I'll admit I consider a 7 way draw ridiculous, and if people feel it should occur would rather cancel the game. That said everyone else seems set on it. So I'm not going to be the person who tells you all to fuck yourselves. I don't understand why people want to end the game, except austria. But I'll end it anyway. Peace out.
-England
30 Apr 14 UTC And Italy, Germany, Austria. If any of you were voting draw as a joke, I hope this serves as a lesson. Don't make joke votes.
01 May 14 UTC shrug
I was messing around but I'm cool with it anyway, I was about to get reamed by Austria lmao
01 May 14 UTC Were we taking this game seriously? I feel like we hurt damian's feelings.
01 May 14 UTC I'm just awful at gunboat, so I'm glad that its done.
01 May 14 UTC I voted draw when I had to request my pause so i'm fine with it.
01 May 14 UTC You weren't going to get anywhere anyways, England.
01 May 14 UTC Serves you right... playing with a bunch of halfwit Mods....
01 May 14 UTC One of whom thoroughly schooled your ass.
01 May 14 UTC No feelings were hurt.

I was just confused.
01 May 14 UTC I'm actually curious though 2WL. I don't know if you'll see this, what did you think I was signalling when I moved to Sweden? I don't play many gunboats so I'm curious if I was misinterpreted.
01 May 14 UTC I read it as a "just making sure there's no funny business", which would have been fine.

But the support hold on Moscow was a real "Fuck you, you're not getting Warsaw" type of deal.
01 May 14 UTC GF is spot on - you gave Moscow a support hold, ensuring that I couldn't get Warsaw, then combined that with a move to Sweden, which by itself wouldn't have been a dealbreaker, but was unnecessary and made more aggressive in context.
01 May 14 UTC I see. I had intented the support hold to Moscow to be a fuck you to Austria, and the Move to sweden to be a. Hey man, I don't expect to get any builds soon. How do you feel about letting me have Sweden.

Definitely a mistake on my end. I'll keep that in mind for the future. Thanks.
