As some of you know me and wife having a baby in the near future, i have now gone in to ^full alert^ defcon red mood!

This means i wont be able to tend to game for a while, and as you know this while can be short or long.

So i have requested for a pause. If this paus drags out ( dosent look like it) i will let you all know and even if needed look for replacment if to long.



Hope you all understand.

Thx

07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: GL!
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: GL!
11 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi All! Sorry I haven't been on during the pause - a particularly long haul flight.

I'll respond to your messages now :)
19 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey everyone, sorry this took so long. SunRa will be replaced tonight, thanks for your patience. Was worth a shot!
19 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi everyone! I've taken over for Sunra. Hopefully we can get this game going again. I look forward to playing with you all.
As a first order of business: can anyone tell me who my allies are?
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: pretty sure we agreed to 2-way draw.
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm going to unpause tomorrow morning, I encourage everyone to get back into the swing of things and say Hi to Italy
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi Italy. :)

Looking forward to that 2WD, Germany
20 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi Italy.

Thank you for taking over the position.

I'm going to give a summary from my perspective here but welcome other perspectives. I'll try to be neutral but it is hard to be objective while you're in the game!

Things started out with a nervous east, but confusion between Turkey and I led to an AIR alliance. Germany stabbed me in Sweden after I'd opened north, so I pivoted and have been working with England ever since. France and I discussed moves together but I didn't follow through, greatly annoying France and leading to him collapsing his position toward you.

Meanwhile, Austria stabbed me, but Itsly worked with me against him until last year, where Italy stabbed me. This threatened an 18, due to France's moves, so Austria and I have attempted to settle our differences.

Others: feel free to give your perspectives!
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I realized I forgot to answer you. Thanks for the explanation, Russia. It was very helpful. I have read all of Italy's message history, so I should be caught up.
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm just here so I don't get fined
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I thought we were having a 17/17 Germany? :'(
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: viva la Livonia
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG everyone
21 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you for filling in for the position Valis. Appreciate what a thankless task it is.
22 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I will need a pause Sunday/ Monday as I travel long haul. If everyone puts their order in I can do mine at the right time. Thanks
22 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sounds good Austria.

I guess GG, Valis, not that I've been here for really any of it.
Thanks for setting up this whole Tournament, though. It's been great.
24 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Could I get a pause please? Probably only need 24 hours
24 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Calling all Valis; calling all Valis... Can Austria get his pause?
25 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: I put in my unpause. I suggest we all do so we can start as soon as Austria's ready.
26 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Unpaused here too ...
26 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Give France a chance to log in :)
27 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: No idea why everyone wants a Russian solo, but good luck to you all.
27 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thanks for the game guys!
27 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thanks France - Sorry to have contributed to your downfall :(
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: My draw vote is up. If Russia truly doesn't want to solo, (like he claims) and now has accomplished his goal of revenge on Austria, (since he's in last now) then there's no reason to continue this game any longer. I don't see much else changing going forward.
Russia, I'm expecting your draw vote most of all.
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: As per my private message to you, and as per my private discussions with England over the last few years of the game, I don't think we're quite at a draw yet.

I understand it's rhetorically important to make the point you're making, and of course any public press by me is equally hollow. There's an obvious path to 18 for me and has been for some time; I choose not to take it. England stood by me, and I will stand by them.
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: So, even though I'm eliminated I've been following the game with great interest. And I noticed something off and went and check the Local Rules...

My deepest apologies but there was a mistake at game creation; everyone signed up for Hidden Draw Votes and it was not enabled. I've fixed it. Thanks for your patience.
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: Dang valis. That was part of my strategy. :P
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just so everyone's aware about the scoring system:
In draws, Carnage is a rank-based scoring system. It doesn't matter how many people are in the draw; a 7WD and a 3WD with the same order has basically the same divide of points at the end.
Ignoring SC counts, the game has 28 000 points to divide out when the draw is called. First place gets 7000, 2nd get 6000, all the way down to 7th with 1000. Even if someone was eliminated, they still get the points. For example, in this game, Turkey will still get 1000 points, Germany, 2000, and France 3000, even though they were eliminated.
Eliminating others serves no purpose in the scoring of the game.
04 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1909: Hey England, what do you say to dropping this whole fighting eachother business and instead go for a nice long convoy of Bel-Nap?
09 May 16 UTC GG
09 May 16 UTC England: You're a terrible player. I have no idea how you got to third in terms of points.

Austria: How come I couldn't convince that Russia was going to stab you and solo until he actually did?
10 May 16 UTC Thank you for the game.

Apologies to England who was a loyal and forthright ally and player. To the replacement players, thank you for filling in positions and helping the tournament run smoothly.

To the players who brutally, repeatedly attacked me for perceived short term gains, thank you for making my decision to stab at the end so easy. Particularly the original Italian and German, who were both guileless and greedy.
10 May 16 UTC Well done Russia. I very much admire a player who can solo with his alliances more or less intact. I have no idea what you told England to delude him so badly, but well done.
