Modern Diplomacy II, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
04 Sep 17 UTC I think I'm just going to stop responding to Boyd. I've said enough and now I feel like he's just trolling - I'm moving on.
04 Sep 17 UTC This is why they invented the mute button
04 Sep 17 UTC I'm serious
04 Sep 17 UTC He is just messing around. I have played in one other game with KB and this is par for the course with him. He is awful. I have muted him in the forums and try to avoid games with him and he still ends up being a shit head. Name these other sites that I am stalking you on KB! Don't be so disgusting to make up lies and try to ruin the game for everyone. Geesh.
04 Sep 17 UTC A couple social sites and a professional site.

I have screen shots available that have been forwarded to interested parties already.
04 Sep 17 UTC Let's see if the authorities think I'm messing around and making up lies :)
04 Sep 17 UTC Oh Jesus. Sounds like this guy needs to be banned

Here is a hint: doxxing isn't illegal. And how can anyone stalk you when you're anonymous
04 Sep 17 UTC i think the only one who got screwed in this is france
04 Sep 17 UTC Well, I lost fair and square.
04 Sep 17 UTC Sending threatening messages is illegal.
04 Sep 17 UTC well here is to Cassini going off course and landing on your brand new truck
04 Sep 17 UTC No, actually, it's not. I'm curious what statute you are citing.
04 Sep 17 UTC its the statue of liberty, everyone knows that
04 Sep 17 UTC I read it in the newspaper that means it must be true lol but seriously let's start up the next one.
04 Sep 17 UTC Sorry France. I'll let the authorities decide what's legal or not. Not some pompous Internet know it all DB.

They are interested in the information. That's good enough for me.
04 Sep 17 UTC Lol. As a lawyer I'm pretty sure you're totally full of shit.
04 Sep 17 UTC Sure you are.

As the President of the United States of America, I'm pretty sure you're totally full of shit.
04 Sep 17 UTC Thanks to those that have joined in the new game. If you're having any trouble joining, send me a message.
04 Sep 17 UTC And now that this is over, my guesses:
Spain + Russia (not a guess)
Italy + Poland (rather obvious)
France + Egypt (assuming KB was being honest about this in the forums)
England + Ukraine
Germany + Turkey
04 Sep 17 UTC Yes, France and Egypt, bounty, Britain
04 Sep 17 UTC Unlike you, I have not told any lies.
04 Sep 17 UTC looks good to me, slypups. bounty was poland.
04 Sep 17 UTC my bounty was ukraine
04 Sep 17 UTC My bounty was France also I need an invite..
05 Sep 17 UTC i guess that means ND and yoak won, if they captured the only bounty? i forget how the scoring worked.
05 Sep 17 UTC My bounty was Spain. That closed loop should not have happened.
05 Sep 17 UTC Oh...nvm. Ukraine was my ally.
05 Sep 17 UTC Neither Yoak or myself fully accomplished our bounties though
05 Sep 17 UTC I think the bounty would have kicked into play more as the game tightened. If your bounty was across the table, it wouldn't have much impact. As Spain was my bounty, I tried early on to hamper his growth by enlisting France's help into Portugal. I also suggested France take Belgium which probably would have cemented our early relationship. France had me as his bounty however, which made him less likely to pair with me, though it could have been the ultimate stab later.
05 Sep 17 UTC Are there any rules changes we should make before we start Pairs II?
05 Sep 17 UTC Are these bounties right? ??s in front of those which haven't declared.

05 Sep 17 UTC my bounty was ukraine
05 Sep 17 UTC Spain also claimed that. Anyone else want to be honest? :P
05 Sep 17 UTC the love of my life is CAPT Brad.
05 Sep 17 UTC Oops - Russia, my partner, had Ukraine as his bounty. I had Italy. It had been so long, I had mixed them up.
05 Sep 17 UTC i love you too shirk. but i miss hauta, we go back aways
05 Sep 17 UTC so....?

Britain =>
Spain =>
Italy =??>
Turkey =??>
Russia =>
Ukraine =>
Poland =??>
Egypt =??>
Germany =>
France =>
05 Sep 17 UTC My partner was Germany as guessed and bounty was Russia.

More post mortem later. I'm done for the night.
05 Sep 17 UTC Everyone should have an invite to Pairs II now. If it got lost in the mail, let me know.
05 Sep 17 UTC thanks for understanding my plight guys.
btw, my bounty was Germany (and my ally was Italy). I really let him down -- one time even before Harvey! Sorry Balduran.
05 Sep 17 UTC My bounty was Egypt (who I honestly tried to work with for a quite a while, but, you all can see how he is).

As for you, Hauta, you were a great partner. Sure you made a few calls I didn't agree with, but you had real reasoning, were willing to engage with me and discuss strategy, and were generally pleasant to converse with.
05 Sep 17 UTC hi hauta. nice to hear from you directly
05 Sep 17 UTC hauta and ND were my best allies, go figure
05 Sep 17 UTC Italy by "honestly tried to work with for quite a while" do you actually mean insist that Egypt take on Turkey at their peak of power solo while you sit back and do nothing?

Then whining and crying when I didn't instantly jump on that very generous offer?

Cause it is still in the archives on where I asked for help against Turkey and you declined saying you were too occupied elsewhere.

And then when Egypt actually did that, stab them in the back weakening them?

Cause that is the facts on what your offer of "honestly trying to with for quite a while was in reality.
05 Sep 17 UTC Sure Boyd, whatever helps you sleep
05 Sep 17 UTC (To: You, from Italy) - Autumn, 1994: I know we haven't interacted much, but I'm greatly wary of the 8-build Turkey, and unless you're his partner, you should be too. I've been betrayed by him, and you're liable to take the brunt of his assault soon. If I don't attack Libya, can you agree to work with me against Turkey?

(To: Italy, from you) - Autumn, 1994: He did move strong into the Balkans against you and is working hard to get me to move in your direction.

I would greatly like it if you didn't attack Libya and us tie each other up over it.

5 Jul 2017 (To: Italy, from you) - Spring, 1995: So yes. I'm fighting alone lol

Thanks.
5 Jul 2017 (To: You, from Italy) - Spring, 1995: I can't do much more than that just yet
5 Jul 2017 (To: You, from Italy) - Spring, 1995: I'm supporting myself into Ionian Sea this turn
5 Jul 2017 (To: Italy, from you) - Spring, 1995: True.

But what are you doing?

Again, I feel like I'm in this fight alone :(
5 Jul 2017 (To: You, from Italy) - Spring, 1995: Well, if you support yourself in with Israel and Alexandria, you're guaranteed to take it from Turkey
4 Jul 2017 (To: Italy, from you) - Spring, 1995: I'm going to try.

Wish you had more of a presence in the Balkans to slow Turkey/Ukraine.

It feels like I'm in this fight alone :(
4 Jul 2017 (To: You, from Italy) - Spring, 1995: Will you be taking East Mediterranean this turn?
If so, I can support myself into Ionian (rather than head elsewhere from Maltese and risk a bounce from Naples) and we can press Turkey's fleets
05 Sep 17 UTC i think its time to mute boyd. this is more than intolerable
05 Sep 17 UTC (muted*) ah, much better
05 Sep 17 UTC So stating facts is more than intolerable??

Wanting a guy to not get dumped from a game because he was in a hurricane is more than intolerable?

Not letting others malign me (which you whined about being against the rules) is more than intolerable?

LOL!!!!

Thank you for calling me more than intolerable as those are traits shown by very few here.
05 Sep 17 UTC yep
