06 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: GameMaster: mynamejeff was banned: Repeat Multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
06 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Russia]:...
06 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Kenya]:Ugh longest game ever
06 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Russia]:This is garbage.
06 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Russia]:I'm voting Cancel.
07 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Libya]:I'll vote to cancel with you.
07 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [South-Africa]:Fuck this.
07 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Europe]:indeed this game has very long leadtimes.... can we not speed it up ?? Otherwise we will loose players all the time .....
07 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Western-Canada]:That starts with people locking in orders and not just saving them
08 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2002: [Europe]:Well, I am making my orders always within a couple of hours, that's all I can do
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2003: [USA]:Gg everyone, I'm gonna lose 5 centers this year.
14 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2004: [India]:This is the slowest game ever.
14 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2004: [South-Africa]:Good thing you don't have anything else planned for the next month... Do you?
14 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 2004: [Russia]:The best part is whoever survives gets to take like 10 points.

25 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Kenya]:Hi. New Kenya on the game. I'm open to any kind of alliance. Write me if you want anything from me.
06 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:I would accept a 4 way draw. Who wouldn't?
06 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:I'm game.
06 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Western-Canada]:Same
06 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:I'm in
14 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:Dont you both really think we all deserve a draw?
25 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:Couldn't convince you to draw now and split with 3?
25 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Kenya]:Brazil?
25 May 15 UTC Spring, 2017: [Near-East]:Brazil and Kenya are in a great position to split it TWO ways, by eliminating WC.
26 May 15 UTC Spring, 2017: [Kenya]:Preach it, brother, Near-East.
26 May 15 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:This is crazy
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Kenya]:Folks, this is why PPSC games SUCK.

I had reservations about joining it, but you see what happens. There was a chance to salvage the game, but the incentives are all wrong.

Brazil is happy to play for a "strong second" and just get some webDip points instead of trying to win.

India gave up because Brazil and Western-Canada can collude for a result in which one of them refuses to play to win.

Never play PPSC games. Everyone who was eliminated, you got steamrolled. Don't let that happen again.

Last time for me.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Kenya]:And of course, none of this would have happened if my predecessor hadn't NMR'd. W-C and Brazil gleefully jumped at this opportunity when a 4-way stalemate was pretty much reached.

Nice win fellas.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Brazil]:Nice playing with you all.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Western-Canada]:I think hes being sarcastic there Brazil
Your fault for joining it, Kenya.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Kenya]:No sarcasm at all.

There was a chance to survive this game when I joined, but India had already given up in his head.

At any rate, my points about how much PPSC sucks and the reasons no one should play it, ever, still stand.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Western-Canada]:Good game then.
29 May 15 UTC [Kenya]:GG. I just spent 30 minutes figuring out how to hold Africa with 16 units. It is possible.
29 May 15 UTC [Kenya]:Forgot though that W-C was just gonna win. Oh well. Use for later. ;)
29 May 15 UTC [India]:Hey! I survived. I'll take it. Nicely done Steamy Nicks. Well played. Shouldn't have helped you into Russia but honestly I didn't play well this game do I'm not upset. I hung in there
30 May 15 UTC [Western-Canada]:Good game guys
30 May 15 UTC [India]:Hey! I survived. I'll take it. Nicely done Steamy Nicks. Well played. Shouldn't have helped you into Russia but honestly I didn't play well this game do I'm not upset. I hung in there
