Game drawn
10 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1910: No one is soloing, I just want a couple extra points that's all. Same as Turkey a couple years ago.
10 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1911: The stabs to enable a solo are hilarious to me.
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: Just popped back in... GO FRANCE GO
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: Man, I hate having no builds :(
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'll draw if Russia gets SEV :)
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: Surely Turkey can spare a center supporting all those armies?
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: keep on trying to stir up trouble, France.
11 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1912: Whoever stabs me loses that round. That's my favorite part.
11 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 1912: What move of mine WOULD NOT be stabbing you?
You think Russia will take DEN?
11 Sep 16 UTC HOLY FUCK THAT WORKED
11 Sep 16 UTC Oh, so you want to keep playing?
11 Sep 16 UTC GG
11 Sep 16 UTC OMG I SURVIVED AS RUSSIA
11 Sep 16 UTC good game
11 Sep 16 UTC you damn near almost solo'ed, Valis. Well fought.
11 Sep 16 UTC If I was good, I would have :)
11 Sep 16 UTC Fun stuff, Makes me remember how much fun live games were
11 Sep 16 UTC I played the shit out of that game. I hope you all know that.
11 Sep 16 UTC yes Valis is 3 good 5 me.
11 Sep 16 UTC England, you got 0.25 points of the 100 points in the game.
But yes, you didn't get eliminated :)
11 Sep 16 UTC such are the joys of a B.S. scoring system like SoS
11 Sep 16 UTC how do you calculate score again?
11 Sep 16 UTC [your SC^2] / [everyone's SC^2 added individually]
11 Sep 16 UTC I also had Germany, Russia, and spain attacking me from almost the very beginning. Triple fleet Germany, stab from Spain.
11 Sep 16 UTC I didn't attack you from the beginning at all :)
Also it's France, not Spain.
11 Sep 16 UTC Right, wrong map. I think i was stabbed 5 or so times that game by different players.
11 Sep 16 UTC one of the few games where I happily worked with valis!
11 Sep 16 UTC Something like that bb :)
11 Sep 16 UTC ...and how did that work out for you, results-wise, brainbomb?
11 Sep 16 UTC F04 BEL-LON was my mistake this game.
Should have just taken LVP and not fooled around leaving it open like that.
11 Sep 16 UTC Anyone wanna make an estimate of how many points yoyoyozo would have finished at if not for the stab at the endgame?
11 Sep 16 UTC It let him take more centers than he lost
11 Sep 16 UTC My estimate is 9 supply centers
11 Sep 16 UTC It was part of the deal to get MUN and BER, if he didn't I wouldn't have given them to him so easily
11 Sep 16 UTC France would have fallen if he didn't stab me I think though.
11 Sep 16 UTC I'm thinking that if he hadn't done the stab, I think he would have had munich berlin kiel and denmark (with my help) and the stalemate line would have been formed there.
11 Sep 16 UTC What phase are you talking about specifically?
11 Sep 16 UTC look at Autumn 1909
11 Sep 16 UTC 1908 i mean
11 Sep 16 UTC The stab was in S09
11 Sep 16 UTC If he doesn't do that I take Munich and possible Kiel. I was trying to get some good faith with him.
11 Sep 16 UTC instead of the moscow army build, if he builds fleet at StP...that upcoming year I help get him into Munich, and with that build another StP fleet. Those 2 fleets give him all of scandanavia, and he finishes the game at stalemate configuration with 9 instead of the 7 that he wound up with
11 Sep 16 UTC his stab intentions began at the end of 1908. At that time, Germany's single munich unit (with help from russia and me) would have kept you out of munich for a few turns, and kiel was no danger of falling to you yet at that time. If Russia had stayed loyal then, it would have been russia into munich, not France
11 Sep 16 UTC My reasoning was because France was taking England, and I figured he'd have taken all of it very soon, and while I could keep him from Germany now, with those extra builds, I could not do it for long. So I copped a deal with him, since you were also gaining a lot of centers, for me to have them to be able to keep you back.

I would've had both by 08 if I went through with it, but could not risk him lying to me and taking both for himself, so I lied to him and took one and held to other to keep him from it to see if he were actually on my side. To my surprise, he was, so I took the other.
11 Sep 16 UTC See? I'm a very trustworthy person :)
11 Sep 16 UTC But I was never a solo threat, so there never was any need to keep me back. My gaining didn't imply your losing.
11 Sep 16 UTC Also, England would have held.
11 Sep 16 UTC You think Russia would have worked with me LESS to eliminate you if he had more centers?! I think you need to take a step back here and contemplate the game England.
11 Sep 16 UTC Well, regardless - my new plan is to beat you in the tournament by my measly .25 points or however many I get this game for your stab.
11 Sep 16 UTC I live in Boston. Boston likes to think of itself as a rival and analogous City to New York City. New York City doesn't notice Boston exists.

The point being, you're welcome to try :)
