13 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2003: [Ghana]:Sorry, people. Internet probs around phase change time.
15 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: [India]:Anyone else suppicious about Russia missing a turn and then miraculously PAC Russia gets a new person who vacates the very territory Russia wants? Seems very unusual to me.
15 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Pacific-Russia]:I was on vacation for Independence day and was surprised that I hadn't been defeated. But if my 3 centers mean that much to you. I can go idle again.
20 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: [India]:Wow Pac-Russia moves again for the sole purpose of bettering russia. This is starting to seem strange. Like maybe Russia is PAC Russia to.
20 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Russia]:Ok.
20 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Pacific-Russia]:? India your paranoia is strange
20 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Frozen-Antarctica]:If that is the case I must be Russia and PAC Russia also. Oh and Europe. Well I might as well just be everyone in the game but you.......
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [Russia]:Last check, no you are india as well FA! You are plotting against yourself!!
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [India]:Except only Pac-Russia has DC and come back at random intervals of key importance
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [India]:None of you saw pac-russia come back and move just one army off of his own supply center so russia could take it. That just seems normal to everyone
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [Kenya]:Email the mods with cheating accusations, don't post them in General chat.
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [Ghana]:^^ What Kenya said ^^
20 Jul 14 UTC Spring, 2005: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Why would I e-mail the mods on myself?
29 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Russia]:Hello Everyone! I hope to be given a new slate from my enemies, and continue old alliances.
29 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Europe]:Welcome new Russia
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Hi. I've taken over for Antarctica. I think you'll find in me a much more agreeable Antarctic leader.
14 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Frozen-Antarctica]:I should let you know that I'll be reclaiming the frozen territories that rightfully belong to me. This is not an offense against any nations which have sought opportunistic reward. I will not hold that against you. I would do the same.

If anyone is interested in forging a friendship, please feel free to discuss this with me.
15 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Pacific-Russia]:I am surprised I held onto Japan as long as I did.
15 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Took quite some time and I was worried you were going to move for numerous turns. Well played PAC
16 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Pacific-Russia]:I assumed you were just colorblind India and assumed I was you :)
16 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Well I am colorblind haha but I do have a good memory and it was just taking me a while to get over there
17 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 2011: [Kenya]:...well crap. at least all my neighbors missed their phase too...
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [India]:ooo sorry guys I thought the turned happened an hour later then it did
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Kenya]:I don't think anyone minds the board leader missing a turn :D
09 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:Okay guys NE and Ghana have to go and if that happens I am okay negotiating a draw. This is getting a little ridiculous and There are a lot of stalemates on the board. Let me know thoughts
09 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Near-East]:Personally I believe that Near East is an upstanding citizen and should not be destroyed.
15 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2018: [Brazil]:Kenya ! Draw, please !!!
15 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2018: [Kenya]:With multiple countries at 1 SC? I don't think so, no.
16 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2018: [Europe]:Come on. Just draw.
16 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2018: [Ghana]:Multiple? Two, more like, one of which could have turned on you at various points but chose to let you know he was leaving and all but gave you his sc's :)
16 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2018: [Kenya]:The game is *far* from over... why would we draw when half the countries are still alive and kicking? I don't sign up for games just to have them end right when they're getting good...
18 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2018: [China]:TThis is why winner takes all games are better.
18 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Kenya]:What do you mean, China?
19 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2019: [China]:Kenya, I mean that you are trying to win it all and everyone else is just bitching out and trying to end the game with a draw. Go for it!

I have stopped joining PPSC games because it is too easy for 2-3 people to create an alliance in which the goal is for them to be the remaining *group* of players. There is no single winner, and that means they can work with impunity.

I prefer WTA because you don't have players begging for draws "when the game is just getting good."
23 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Near-East]:Good luck everyone. See you in another game.
24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2020: [Brazil]:Kenya, DRAW ?
24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2020: [Kenya]:Good luck NE! Thanks for a good game :)
26 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:All Draw

And you , Kenya ?
26 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Europe]:The fight continues, it seems.
27 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Pacific-Russia]:60 turns and still no resolution?
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2021: [Europe]:What do you mean, "no resolution?" Kenya and India are winning and will win.
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2024: [Kenya]:Sorry about that all... I had a really rough week, missed the game entirely.
21 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2026: [Brazil]:Draw ?
21 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2026: [India]:Not a chance we are finishing this now.
23 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2026: [Near-East]:Well that stab was both predictable and well executed.
23 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2026: [Kenya]:We'll see; I would have preferred if he didn't have so many builds left, but maybe I can make it happen. Seemed a shame not to try.
24 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2027: [China]:I'm still amazed that both Argentina and Brazil have survived so long. A peace pact is necessary, but expansion can be tough having to quickly cross the ocean.
29 Oct 14 UTC [Kenya]:Good game all! Sorry about all of the missed turns; I'm glad we could end this one right, though :D
29 Oct 14 UTC [Near-East]:It was a fun game, although I got crushed by the Africa India vice.

So I have a question, was there private press either before or after you convoyed to Iran in Autumn 2025. Because I do not know how that move could be viewed as anything put a set-up to stab. But then in Spring 2026 India did not move in any way to protect his interests. And then of course you moved for the kill. But the convoy to Iran surprised me.

Hope to see some of you in future games.
29 Oct 14 UTC [Kenya]:There had been press between India and I all game about splitting the world in half, and we'd had a long history of non-aggression in the Indian Ocean. But no, there was nothing specific in regards to Iran; I was worried he'd catch on, but at that point I was prepared to launch my attack in Spring 2026 no matter what he thought. The plan was to attack Siberia, Afghanistan, Bombay, Leningradskya, and the rest of Europe all at once, and try to hold the line against Brazil in the Atlantic, but my stupid NMR that turn meant I couldn't stab quite as hard (since I wanted to secure the North Atlantic and the rest of Europe instead. The way it worked out eventually slowed me a little, and without Brazil's support I'm honestly not sure I could have broken through long enough to hit 44.
