Game drawn
21 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Near-East]:and the war between you and kenya isnt helping
21 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Oz]:Kenya and I are allies.
21 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Oz]:In fact, I am happy to declare that Kenya, Libra, Russia, and Quebec are allied with me in an effort to prevent further expansion of Brazil.
21 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:I confirm the truth of Australia's last statement, and would like to add Europe (soon to be fully & solely on their own continent sans colonies), who shall have peace with Quebec once Thule & Alaska are abandoned.
22 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 2008: [Russia]:Kenya & Brazil are each about to miss a turn; Kenya will go into civil disorder.... How shall we take advantage of these developments?
22 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 2008: [India]:why CD? I would assume a replacement player would be assigned
22 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 2008: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:What happened to our alliance?
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:I made requests and got agreements from everyone, but I feel like people are largely continuing their own personal conflicts. I tried making westward advances but could not do so alone. I think the window of opportunity to take down Brazil has now gone. Good luck.
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:Indeed; good luck to you, as well. Your actions in Antarctica are duly noted.
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:^heroic
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:It still would not take much more than a few turns to invade Brazil's easy coast if Libya, Kenya, Quebec all worked together. By the time their internecine conflicts are over, Brazil will be ready to win
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:Brazil in Europe should be all the convincing that is needed :I
27 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:Also as I said Oz, seas were more keen to conquer than Territories, Brazil has the seas, and your finished rippp
28 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:Well said. Right now, Brazil is poised to dominate two entire continents, the first to do so in this match (and by a decent margin, as nobody else claims even one entire continent, except for Oz, but that's the tiniest continent with hardly any Supply Centers. Good game, everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving!
28 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:^Quebec, Oz & Brazil alone dominated at least one entire continent each last season, but now only Quebec & Brazil (and the latter holds practically double the former).
28 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:Anyway: enough rambling; good game & Happy Thanksgiving! :)
29 Nov 19 UTC [India]:For the holidays, we should Draw and all hold hands
30 Nov 19 UTC [Russia]:I agree!
30 Nov 19 UTC [Oz]:Likewise!
30 Nov 19 UTC [Russia]:Wow; what a gorgeous convoy -- with North Sea support from Europe -- from deep Quebec all the way across the Atlantic into Skandinavia! Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. The savory irony of the alliance between Quebec & Europe -- former adversaries now peacefully allied by my careful *diplomacy* as mediator & advocate -- teaming up to attack me, the broker of there newfound peace, is rather amusing.
30 Nov 19 UTC [Libya]:It truly is amazing to see cooperation from all countries around the world.
01 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:{^their}
Indeed; 'tis a fine game.
01 Dec 19 UTC Moderator: (Aurelin): A user in this game needed an emergency pause.
04 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:Let's either leave this game paused forever, or call it a draw (more than half of the other players have been eliminated).
05 Dec 19 UTC [India]:just draw the dumb thing
05 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:Happy to draw.
05 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:Except of course the player that has requested the pause and has not voted draw does not have internet access.
05 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:Well, alright, then: I have voted to draw the game, as have some of you, in the hopes that the pausing player also votes to draw; how many of you have not voted to draw?
05 Dec 19 UTC [India]:Quebec and Brazil are the two keeping this mess going
05 Dec 19 UTC [Near-East]:Old World versus New World!
05 Dec 19 UTC [India]:at the rate we're going there will be no world before this ends
05 Dec 19 UTC [Near-East]:xD
07 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:This feels like a bit much.
07 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:Can we just cancel the game?
07 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:No; it must be Drawn.
07 Dec 19 UTC [Quebec]:I dont think we will be able to draw until Brasil comes back
07 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:Yeah. Oh well!
07 Dec 19 UTC [India]:Yeah Quebec but YOU can still vote Draw, which you haven't
07 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:XD This is hilarious & great -- although I hope whatever they needed their emergency pause for works out alright, I hope Brazil never comes back, and this game drags on & on, interminably, for years... until suddenly Brazil returns, and some of us are still here, and the game continues, eventually ending in the early twenty-thirties (on both calendars in game & real world); or, hey: maybe Quebec could also go ahead and vote for a Draw, too, and eventually, some time next year, the game masters may allow the game to Draw without Brazil's vote (although the emergency pause will most likely expire in January or February as Brazil returns from the Holidays).
07 Dec 19 UTC Moderator: (Aurelin): And unpaused.
07 Dec 19 UTC [Quebec]:Ok, now if Brasil is up to draw I will as well
07 Dec 19 UTC [India]:Draw and end this, both of you.
07 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:Yes, please.
08 Dec 19 UTC [Brazil]:My vote is in
08 Dec 19 UTC [Quebec]:Good game everyone
08 Dec 19 UTC [India]:amen
08 Dec 19 UTC [Europe]:Good Game All :D
08 Dec 19 UTC [Russia]:Indeed: good game; glad to have joined as the third major power for free and win a few points just for showing up near the end. XD
08 Dec 19 UTC [Oz]:GG!
