03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1: good luck
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck all.
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2: 7 minutes is actually a good phase length
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2: ok
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: Looks like 2 NMRs
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: I hate this...
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: Yeah, we should let them be defeated and then draw this match.
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: Yes.
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: Yea
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: It can be agreed that a 2-way draw would be preferable though
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 5: It wasn't actually over for rome. I don't get why he left. At least Egypt was done so It's understandable in a way.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: The weird thing is that Rome is not listed as a CD on the list
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: It's sum of squares scoring so Greece won't get mich anyway. Let's give him those one or two points.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Ok, now Rome will CD out
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Now he is.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: How does Sum-of-Squares scoring work? I've never played a game where that was the system.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: You see the "worth" part in the table below?
That's how it works.

When the game is drawn, players with many centres get even more points and those with few centres gain almost nothing.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Oh, that's a good way to score things
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: If go to help, the way the points are calculated is explained.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Oh, thanks. I'll read up on the scoring guideline after the match
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: It is how much dots you have and turns that into points.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: I see
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Yes Greece. But if a Player has Double the centres of another one, he will get way more than Double the points.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Yeah
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Also true
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Egypt and Rome, both are back. That means the Phases will take the whole 7 minutes...
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: .???
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Well, Egypt is dead, so it doesn't matter. But if Rome is back, that means that it's game again.
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 6: Because Rome won't Press ready...
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 7: Destroy Rome and draw
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 7: Once Rome is out, Carthage and I can draw.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 7: Whyyyyyy
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 7: Good game Greece. :)
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 7: No Chance if both sides attack you.
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 8: I just started another game if anyone wants to join
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 8: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=179760
03 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 8: Hi armpit
03 Jun 16 UTC Sorry. It's late here already. :)
03 Jun 16 UTC Looks like Carthage should win this game. gg
03 Jun 16 UTC I hope so. Thank you. You Played very well, too.
03 Jun 16 UTC Yeah, this was a fun game
03 Jun 16 UTC I mean, you're taking Ravenna and Jerusalem this turn, which should secure you the win
03 Jun 16 UTC 18 to win
03 Jun 16 UTC And to be honest, that egypt and Rome left a few rounds didn't change that much of the game.
03 Jun 16 UTC I mean, we only attacked Rome later, and Egypt would have lost whether or not he stayed in
03 Jun 16 UTC Exactly.
