07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:Dead players in the peanut gallery, I know you're awesome and better than everyone alive obviously but you're also annoying as fuck.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Russia]:I just can't understand why you all agreed to unpause. I know that Kenya had to go for a while, but that time should have been used to agree to a mutual draw before India could slowly reach 43 centers, because he will. Now all of you want a draw NOW becuase you all see that he can solo; the foresight should have been there.

I suppose it's not my place to criticize, but I just think the stakes would be higher, considering there are 1275 points on the line.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [China]:Being annoying as fuck is our compensation for having this interminable and utterly predictable game still showing up in our feeds.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:Sorry Russia, I'm not a sore loser looking to keep a game on pause that I'm at risk of losing.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:And the stalemate line isn't set fully but barring further NMR's or serious fuck-ups India gets no more centers.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:@USA: Libya's wife is offended that you think she's "annoying as fuck" ... she was just trying to make all the African gents a little bit happier.

And by "further NMRs serious fuck-ups" I assume you meant the way that Argentina was intentionally NMRing to stall out the game, before?
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:Is that what he was doing?
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Libya]:My wife is only here to make me a little happier, no other African gents are included.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Frozen-Antarctica]:That's what you think...
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Libya]:Damn you, you Penguins and your marital sabotage!
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Western-Canada]:http://ww1.hdnux.com/photos/07/22/34/1910572/7/920x920.jpg
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:I think the reason why there's been so much activity from "brain-eater" former players in this particular game is recognition that the two smaller players were being so artfully manipulated by the two larger players. Back when the Africans controlled their whole continent, the rest of us saw that USA's "gang up against India" strategy was flawed (and instead one of them should have gone after the other). And sure enough, history has proven the "brain eaters" accurate -- they both blindly followed USA and as a result they've now long a third of their continent.
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:*as a result they've now lost a third of their continent.
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:lol people blindly following me? That's rich.
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:Can't wait for the 5 way draw to happen to piss off all you dead naysayers.
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Quebec]:emphasis on "5" way draw...
*hint, hint*
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Other than Brazil's pathetic throw, this has been an interesting match. A lot of shit talk, too many NMRs, and one player Bossing the rest.
You should all take note of Indias play - he has schooled us all.
08 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Russia]:India has played very well, but if anyone thinks he's going to draw, willingly, he or she is mistaken.
09 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:Indeed, this will probably end with a fatal NMR while India rightly pushes this to the end.
09 May 16 UTC Autumn, 2020: [USA]:But I can hope otherwise
09 May 16 UTC Spring, 2021: [Europe]:It would be very, very fitting for this to end with an Indian solo. And I can't resist to: I told you so. I think 2007-2014 Argentina (and to lesser extent USA, Kenya ) is to blame.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Kenya]:We can do this for ever ....
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [USA]:India will have to change course or draw soon.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Nah he just needs to wait for another NMR
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [USA]:yeah or that
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Brazil]:No, the game is actually not in a stalemated configuration because India has a surplus of fleets. For example, all India needs to do is to rotate his surplus fleets (a very long path) Bombay->Thai->Vietnam->Gua->Sha->Bei->Kor->Vla->SoO->Kam->Yak->ESiberia->WSiberia->StP->BSt... with two or three such fleets replacing the armies that are currently on that coastline. Once that is done, the balance will have been tipped and one of USA's SCs will fall to him. Of course, it will take a very long time for him to get there, over 20 days are real time, so chances are indeed more likely that Argentina will make y'all wait several weeks first and then NMR again.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Brazil]:Meanwhile, if you're bored, thank USA's draw-begging pacifism strategy.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [USA]:India has 3 on Barents, you suggest he could up to 4, I have triple support on Barents that with some maneuvering I could up to quadruple support while maintaining security in Alaska. there's a reason you died early, brazil.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [USA]:You mock the board when it's still fighting and not rallying against the leader, then you mock it when it's holding the line. I know being a loser sucks but seriously.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Brazil]:What I mock is your statement "India will have to ..." India doesn't have to do anything. You want India to do something, just try to make them.

USA, you've been making that same "India will have to ..." statement to your African pawns for so many years now, while they both steadily decreased in strength as a result. Perhaps they like boring long drawn-out endings (this game likely going into July or August without much change now); afterall, a pawn isn't destined to see much excitement in the chessgame. And I'm being kind by saying they're your "pawn" -- the first word that came to mind was the "b-word".
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [USA]:Sorry for trying to get people to prefer a draw to a loss, but you clearly got what you prefer so everyone is happy!
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Ghana]:I disagree with the word 'pawn' because I am a survivor and I have survived and will continue to do so.
12 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Kenya]:Brazil - just do one
13 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Brazil is a complete troll. He threw the game to Arg in a wrecking tantrum as till keep trying to get attention. Just fuck off dude you have credibility at all.
13 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Kenya]:Question to India - what gives? Are you really looking for one of us to die of boredom and NMR so that you can gain a hollow victory or do you really think there is a winning line for you.

If there is then I for one would say well played. But if you're just hoping for an NMR then ...
13 May 16 UTC Spring, 2022: [Brazil]:India, well played

"Meanwhile, if you're bored, thank USA's draw-begging pacifism strategy"
14 May 16 UTC [USA]:It takes a special kind of someone to want everyone to be just as much of a loser as he himself is. Well done Brazil.
15 May 16 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Well played Chluke - good job.

wpfieps - go fuck yourself and I hope to never play another game with you again.
15 May 16 UTC [Kenya]:Man, I think overall India deserved the win but not impressed in the way it ended...

Let's get another game going ...
15 May 16 UTC [USA]:come on, ND...
15 May 16 UTC [USA]:w/e, good game all
15 May 16 UTC [Ghana]:Sorry
15 May 16 UTC [China]:IT'S OVER
15 May 16 UTC [Brazil]:Awesome finish, India(chluke) !! You certainly deserved every point in this game -- which is to say that nobody else deserved to get any points.

Congrats, Ghana(ND). You got that "Survived" vs. "Defeated" credit you were hoping and praying for. Not quite as good as the 200+ draw points you could have had if you hadn't listened to USA(y2kjbk), but some people still see value in it.

Such an awesome game. A betrayal by Argentina(BenjaminFranklin), and yet he finishes with no more points than I did. Not a single soul willing to fight Argentina(BenjaminFranklin), and in the end none of them got anything. Yes! Serves you right, Oz(tolstoy) and Frozen(Wusti), you guys are probably still fighting over the India Ocean in your dreams, and yet your battles turned out to be meaningless - you both finish with 0.

Still begging and praying for a draw, Kenya (BornAgainGamer) ? Good luck with that. I'd hate to say I told you so...
15 May 16 UTC [Brazil]:@USA(y2kjbk): Don't blame the finish on Ghana(ND). Argentina(BenFranklin) also NMRed the last turn which would have been enough for India(chluke) to win. That's what you deserve for having partnered with a player like Argentina(BenFranklin) -- a let-down in the end. ...and 0 points
15 May 16 UTC [Kenya]:Game should have ended in a draw - not interested in your POV Brazil.
15 May 16 UTC [USA]:i'll take the 0 points and not having to tolerate you anymore ANY DAY! Today is a great day.
15 May 16 UTC [Brazil]:oh, and Libya(deinodon): WesternCanada(leon1122) says that you can have your wife back now
15 May 16 UTC [Brazil]:"should have" ??? "should have" ??? wahaha

Saying that the game "should have ended in a draw, except for the NMR" is like saying that Kenya(BornAgainGamer) "should have slept with Selena Gomez, except for him being old and fat and ugly" ... "should have" ahahaha

Yeah, you take those 0 points, USA(y2kjbk), you deserved every one of them for your choice of allies
15 May 16 UTC [Europe]:Well played CHLUKE! Amazing how all the powers let India get into a position to do this.
