01 Nov 15 UTC Gg all. Way to stop the solo. I had a LOT of chances which I blew up. Especially the last one in Spring '16 where I changed my orders from attacking Mar to supporting it.
Also sorry for prolonging the draw vote.
01 Nov 15 UTC I was pretty sure bo couldn't eliminate me without causing an Austrian win, so I had to keep tapping Gascony or Burgundy to make sure of it. Only chance to survive. Good game everyone.
01 Nov 15 UTC Gg all. Well played Chaqa, well hung on!
01 Nov 15 UTC I kept waiting for Austria to back up so I could make it three but he never did, which I don't get because he was willing to let me get rid of France all the way down to one center but then wouldn't back off from there.
01 Nov 15 UTC I kept at you because I thought you might make another mistake like you did in Spring 16 and I can get a solo.
Anyway, I was going to back off this turn but I got an email from a mod telling me that I should put up a draw vote seeing as a stalemate has been reached. I have been quite busy since a while so I put up the draw vote and chose not to wait for a few more turns. Sorry for that. You played well.
01 Nov 15 UTC I'm interested. Why would a mod email you? There was still a bit of play in this game? What did they say?
01 Nov 15 UTC Here is what I got verbatim:

Hey Balrog,

It's come to our attention that http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=166863 has reached a stalemate and you haven't voted draw yet. It's our policy to ask players to explain their motivations before taking any sort of official action, so I was wondering if you could explain what you're hoping to accomplish going forward in that game and how you hope to accomplish it.

Thanks,
ghug

Most probably someone complained. But I don't want to point fingers.
01 Nov 15 UTC I did, wasn't complaining though. The game went on at an impasse for two years, so I told them to find out what you (or whoever) wasn't drawing meant to accomplish. I only put my draw up a season before you, so you didn't really delay it. If you told them you were going to back up, you would have been allowed to.
