27 Feb 18 UTC Nice work Austria!
27 Feb 18 UTC England... why?
27 Feb 18 UTC This was an awful game. Well played Austria. Was a miracle Germany didn't solo, england appearing out of nowhere was a game changer.
27 Feb 18 UTC I gave Moscow, Warsaw and Berlin to Austria to prevent England getting in on a draw :)
27 Feb 18 UTC I didn't know what to do with England and France missing... I knew something was gonna pop up to get me at some point lol. I had too much undefended.
27 Feb 18 UTC We had already fallen behind the stalemate lines, Italy.
27 Feb 18 UTC I don't think England even wanted to be in the draw, the way he was blitzing my centers...
27 Feb 18 UTC England, we had more centers than Austria and easily, *easily* could have made a draw. You threw the game.
27 Feb 18 UTC lol
27 Feb 18 UTC What was up with that Pause vote? Does anyone pause a live game? How would you even restart it?
27 Feb 18 UTC Austria being over the stalemate line doesn't mean shit because I was also over *his* stalemate line. Bad. Anyway, the game was ruined before that.

Why didn't we cancel/draw when all of the CDs went down?
27 Feb 18 UTC Turkey held out and never voted Cancel. I had my "Cancel" on for ages but after I'd already spent so much time in this weird-ass game, I eventually turned it off.
27 Feb 18 UTC Everyone had the vote in except Turkey
27 Feb 18 UTC A magnificent game.
27 Feb 18 UTC I really feel like live games should autocancel if there's a NMR on turn 1
27 Feb 18 UTC Yeah Turkey held out of the Cancel/Draw. So I made it my goal to try to eliminate Turkey. I figured there would be a German solo, especially when Turkey started taking Italy apart (just one fleet would have really helped there Italy :) ). Then England appeared and all of sudden Germany was losing centers. Brand new game! At that point I took down my draw/cancel.
27 Feb 18 UTC To be fair I forgot about the cancel button in a game recently. Their should be a nag message when you're the only holdout, for people who haven't figured it out yet.
27 Feb 18 UTC Oh that would be a good idea.
27 Feb 18 UTC Things have improved now that you can take over an abandoned position for 0 points.
27 Feb 18 UTC I also took my draw down when England reappeared, I had already put in more than an hour and a solo was conceivable.
