28 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 2012: you are so clueless...
07 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2014: Let's ready up peeps
07 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2014: we can ready up when we are ready. It's not really your business, when we are ready.
08 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2014: Ooh how the cocky have fallen.
10 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: Mexico, I will study your every move. I can't seem to get past a 'few years' as Mexico...
11 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2016: DRAW.

Mexico/Texas and Cuba now have a 100% stalemate line on all fronts.

The land front is unbreachable now.
11 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2016: PLEAD 3 SC NOOB PLEAD
12 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: just stating facts. DRAW...
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: It's interesting to me how Cuba and Mexico are working together rn despite stabbing each other mid-game. Also, you're welcome for assisting in your survival Cuba; Florida could've easily annihilated you years ago had I not attacked him
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: bla, bla, bla, it's a DRAW.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: With 2 hours left, NY and BC have not set draw...Just a long departed Florida's observation.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: We have won territory in the last moves, Florida.
Our enemies make mistakes....
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: See Arizona and New Mexiko...
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: What makes you think it was a mistake ?
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: The lost scs and armies - only a few rounds ago.
As New York said they could click on ready they disagreed... now they should complain that the game needs time...
Remember Texas: "Autumn, 2014: we can ready up when we are ready. It's not really your business, when we are ready"

It is not my business, on which day Texas lose...
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: If Cuba would be clever and brave, he would win many points... (I never lied to the Cuba player.)
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: BTW the only time I did anything remotely hostile towards Cuba was when he missed a round and I took SC in case he was going to miss another one...

We've had nothing but positive cooperation including trusting each other to move fleets through SCs
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: it's a DRAW, we have a firmly established stalemate line.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: Yes, and Mexiko tried to kill him and now he helps Mexiko to survive... strange world.

I always wished Cuba good luck.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: We can guarantee Cuba a draw with only 3 nations and a beer, if he visits Berlin.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: Good diplomacy players shift alliances when necessary to stop others from winning.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: bad diplomacy players drag on games that are obviously a DRAW.
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: Yes, it is a draw - but the question is, if with 3 or 5 nations...
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: And nobody asked you Texas... you have only 3 scs and dont play any role..
13 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: Good diplomacy players as Cuba shouldn't stop themselves from winning many points.
14 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2017: Might I also add that Texas also attacked Cuba
14 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: yawn... DRAW...
14 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: YAWN 3 SC NOOB YAWN
14 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: We'll just wait for two years to have passed with no SC changing hands, then contact the moderators, and they will Draw the game. It's an obvious DRAW, and not voting DRAW in the face of an obvious stalemate line is unsportsmanlike conduct.

quote from the website rules:

"Drawing Games

We do not draw any games due to cheating. We will only force games to draw if they have been at a stalemate for at least two years with no SC's changing hands and no possible sign of a breakthrough. If alerted to such a scenario; we will email the player(s) holding the game up and ask them how they plan to break through. If we deem their plan to be unrealistic, or it includes hoping for misorders or for players to miss phases, then we may force a game to draw."
14 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: Actually it has been 2 1/2 years of game play now without any SC changing hands, and the lines are set in an obvious DRAW, so I will write the moderators after this fall, when, again, no SC change hands.
14 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: Okay lol
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: Still amazed how loyal Cuba is to two people who attacked him
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: even more amazing that you will not vote DRAW in the face of a stalemate line and obvious draw. 3 years now without any SC changing hands.
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: What line? I just broke it
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: that's not the line, the line is one space behind that, look at the map...
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: the current positions that we now hold, can never be taken. It's called a stalemate line, look the whole thing over, you can see it. Therefore the game is a DRAW.
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: the last SC to have change ownership was in the fall of 2014, Arizona, since then, no SC have changed hands.
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: Whiny baby snitch with 3 SCs
16 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 2018: It's a draw.
16 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2018: still a draw.
16 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 2018: You're a draw
17 Jul 17 UTC Of my 108 games, Cuba, followed by Mexico, rank probably 2 and 3 as the most ignorant players. Texas gets the award for third most arrogant player I've ever played with. Pretty sure Mexico and Texas know each other from some previous game
17 Jul 17 UTC Texas is a noob
17 Jul 17 UTC gg New York
17 Jul 17 UTC Well, at least I was not given the 'most ignorant' that Mr.108 games has ever played with/against. Looking at the bright side!
17 Jul 17 UTC You do realize that Texas is replaced player?
17 Jul 17 UTC I was pretty satisfied with the draw line that Texas proposed, and it was clear and evident that attacking him would result in that line breaking, even assuming Cuba would be in on that, and that's a big if.

If you'd be serious about proposing it - you'd remove armies from Arkansas and New Mexico so that I might have an opportunity to attack, as it were - why would I risk loosing the game ?
17 Jul 17 UTC Most ignorant....while I'll admit some of my performance was a bit subpar, I did survive from a poor start. And after coming back from 2 SC I was just aiming to be in a draw, and I got what I aimed for. Made the game a bit boring, but attacking Mexico is way too big of a gamble.
17 Jul 17 UTC I truly admire the Cuba/Mexico cooperation. If I had tapped into that, maybe I'd still be around...
18 Jul 17 UTC babies to then end, i should have expected no less. Incredibly satisfying to have the moderators force a draw on you, such babies.
