10 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Brazil]:Good luck to all: let us savor the world map one last time!
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Libya]:One more fling at the World - happy to get a country I haven't played before.
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:I have weed.
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Libya]:Weed is in California, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weed,_California. Pretty sure USA has that, not you.
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Quebec]:Maybe the guy playing China has weed and that's what he meant. #Blazeit
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:lolllllllllllllllllll
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:Fine then i have opiates
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Brazil]:I've been to Weed, California. It's basically what you'd expect lol
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [Libya]:China certainly has opiates, although you'll need to move east to secure your sources.
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [USA]:I got some green. willing to trade for supply centers
11 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 2000: [USA]:I got some green. willing to trade for supply centers
12 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Libya]:Fall 2000 World Dip - probably the most insane make-or-break round in all Dip games.
12 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: [China]:War...
War never changes
...or DOES IT?
War has changed now...
Did it?
The answer is NO...
...unless its YES...
...no...
YES!?!?!?!?!?
20 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Libya]:Thank goodness. I was really worried that WC was going to receive the convoy help and proper support moves to take Saudi Arabia there.
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Europe]:Yah that's my bad, I forgot to convoy on my end.
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Libya]:Not sure if Quebec, Russia, Brazil, NearEast, and Kenya did their parts either, so it's not all on you, Europe. I could have sworn the five of you were loyally aligned together along with WC.
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Quebec]:Libya! Why didn't you tell me about the convoy? I would have loved to be a part of it and see such a glorious move.

The Great Convoy of 2002 - It truly would have gone down in the history books if it worked.
21 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Western-Canada]:So close
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: [India]:India returns for its homeland.
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Europe]:Let his people go!
02 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Pacific-Russia]:Namaste !
05 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 2006: [Oz]:Hello World! I'm the new president of Oz and I would like to announce that I am opening all diplomatic channels.
07 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Libya]:Wow, that's some heated action in SW Atlantic
07 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: [India]:SW Atlantic Prank Gone Wrong.
07 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:We wanted to make a colorful spiderweb.
07 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Oz]:Mission accomplished
07 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Libya]:Just missing a fleet in BAT to maximize the action on the ten territories bordering that one location. Although I think the winners for "most heavily bordered territory" are East Atl, NE Atl, and NW Atl with 13 each - you can make a grand spiderweb with one of those.
22 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 2010: [Oz]:I swear allegiance to anyone who help me overcome the South-Africa backstabbing.
22 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 2010: [India]:If it was swearing fealty, I would've been all over that since that would've increased my power by 200%
23 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Europe]:This war will be a long one.
26 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Quebec]:This game isn't getting anywhere. It's been like, 6 years. I'm casting my vote to draw.
26 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Quebec]:We can all start another World game without any stalemates once we draw
27 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 2012: [Libya]:Well, more like it's been 4 years of going nowhere for you, Quebec, since you took Yakutsk about that long ago. But there has been a fair bit of activity in east and southeast Asia, Australia, and the southern seas around South America since then.

I don't see the need to draw just yet - plenty of activity still going on in this one, although I understand your concern, as it appears to be progressing in a negative direction for you.
24 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2019: [Libya]:I think I'll show off my support holding technique.
24 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2019: [Europe]:Can't wait to see it!
31 Mar 17 UTC [Libya]:I say draw time. I'll concede a few points I could have had to India for being a good vassal - pretty good for him given he was down to a single army.
01 Apr 17 UTC [Europe]:Fair enough. But I'm gonna be on full defense mode just in case someone doesn't draw.
01 Apr 17 UTC [Europe]:GG all survivors and Argentina for putting up with Quebec even when he stole territory from you.
01 Apr 17 UTC [Libya]:lol - on full defense - you were the final draw vote :)
Gg all
01 Apr 17 UTC [Europe]:Yeah, I was. I typed before I looked.
01 Apr 17 UTC [South-Africa]:Good game everyone! Argentina had a very solid defence. I had to give up on attacking until we'd broken Quebec really.
01 Apr 17 UTC [Libya]:Echo that - impressive job Sgt242 with that defense.
01 Apr 17 UTC [Argentina]:Thanks for compliments. Good game.
