13 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings, fellow players. Hope you're going to enjoy the match, and don't mind me, I'll just sit quietly in the corner.
15 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: what a game we have here
15 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: two nmrs
15 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm voting cancel
15 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry back on hols and was out of signal when didn’t expect to be - happy to cancel though balance of game ruined
15 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: nah, NMRs are a bread and butter of this game, especially in the early stages. No one got hurt. Game on!
25 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Have we lost France?
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Nah, he's good
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: or she
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: GameMaster: A_Mace94 was banned: multi/meta/no reply. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wait, who got banned?
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: he or she who's been good ;-)
25 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, the French leader died in what we can call a hunting accident. I have quickly restored order to the government and I look forward to working with you all!
26 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Don't work with everyone, France. Work with me!
28 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1905: Juggernaut is our word of the day
28 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1905: ^
28 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: Fake news
28 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: *alternative facts
28 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: the truth being presented economically
09 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: I think we've set the world on fire.
09 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: And just when I thought I was playing a well-thought-out game... psssh, I was so wrong
09 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: (Almost) Everyone is fighting each other. Diplomacy dies in darkness.
10 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Nah, I'm just having some fun.
19 Sep 18 UTC Germany, I do hope this match was a lesson for you. Please let me believe that you you have learnt anything from that. I don't want to belittle Russia's skills, but you vastly contributed to their victory. It wasn't a live game, your interpersonal animosities should have not played any role in your strategic and tactical decisions.
At the same time, and now I'm not talking from the position of a player of this game, but as a moderator, you CANNOT address people they way you have. Here and in RL. That's another part of the lesson, which you hopefully have taken here.
19 Sep 18 UTC Dude, its a sum of squares game. If I'm not winning, I really couldn't care who does/if I survive
19 Sep 18 UTC This isn't even a ranked game
19 Sep 18 UTC gg Rusky
19 Sep 18 UTC And if you want to talk about how to address people, the chat between you and myself was civil until you began to say, "oh, well I guess I overestimated your intelligence" and basically saying "you're trash". If you insult someone else, you should be prepared for a response in kind
19 Sep 18 UTC '...your inexperience', I said. And the result of this match along with your records prove my words.
I'm not elevating it to a formal investigation, but with an attitude like that you're on a fast lane to a ban. Take it as a friendly advice what I've said about 'being linguistically selective'.
19 Sep 18 UTC Backstabbing is an intricate part of this game.

GG Russia, good effort Turkey
