13 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck everyone. Please don't delenda me, Rome!
13 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1: Hello,everyone.
13 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1: howdy
15 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 2: Rome, why you have only 4 tloops?
Was it missing?
16 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 2: uhh i guess
17 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 2: GameMaster: ダヴィンチ was banned: Multi. 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!
17 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 2: Weird they tell you the username and not the country in an anonymous game.
19 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 2: 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.
20 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 2: 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.
20 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 2: Welcome New Rome.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 5: From what I can tell, eliminating smaller powers (Rome, Persia) doesn't really increase how many points the bigger powers (I, Egypt and Greece) get in the draw. This is due to DSS giving you more points the smaller the other players are, and once the smaller players are eliminated the average SC count increases a lot.
Also notice the payout. The pot size is 25 but the payout is 11+5+1+1+11 = 29. So the small players are not really leaching "our" points, because points are rounded up.

As such I see little reason to continue the match and I am perfectly content to draw now. I image the rest of you are too.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 5: At least fight it out, lol.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Guess Persia is out off the draw then.
03 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Yes, I'm done for. I messed up my first move after I joined. I never do well on this map.
04 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 6: I am in for the draw as well.
04 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 6: Ok good.
04 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 6: How about you Greece?
04 Nov 19 UTC Well i voted it already
04 Nov 19 UTC Who hasn't voted?
05 Nov 19 UTC thanks for letting me draw.
05 Nov 19 UTC Guess Persia.
05 Nov 19 UTC Phew. There were a lot of Carthaginian units heading my way all of a sudden. You know how to make a guy nervous.
05 Nov 19 UTC Listen, technically Carthage moved away so clearly you had nothing to fear :P

I figured attacking you was the best way to ensure no one could solo, or if the attack went well, that I could solo. I thought you were going to attack me for the same reasons, but I was wrong about that.
05 Nov 19 UTC It was prudent. I would have done it in about a year, if I'm honest.
05 Nov 19 UTC What!? I thought we were friends.
06 Nov 19 UTC Friend is such a strong word to use in this game... :)
