23 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Thanks Russ! Good to know
24 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Hi. I've been getting a lot of reports about this and have let the mods know as well.
25 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: I also just encountered the muting thing this morning, that’s a pretty annoying bug. Could be really bad if chat goes out toward the end of a phase! Any idea how we could work around that?
25 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Other than the banner the mods put up, I don't have any other solutions.
25 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: So far I've only seen it after using mobile. So check aggressively, refresh after sending messages to see if a muting has happened. I don't know. Just need to wait for it to get fixed.
29 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lame
29 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: My diplomacy must be awful :'(
29 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I feel you
30 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well... GG all
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: And france stabs Germany. Well shit
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oh sure. Germany has been manipulating everyone the whole game to keep itself strong and everyone else just a bit weaker.

Masterfully done so far, but an obvious solo attempt (of course). It makes sense that people would try to stop it.
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: I have everyone right where I want them... Bwahahahaha!
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lol you joke but nobody has an incentive to take your final centre hahaha
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: That won't stop Russia.
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Greed is enough incentive apparently.
10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: well france was very wise to seize the initiative last turn. Germany was going to have to make his move eventually, and France just his legs off at the knees preemptively. I'd clap, but for the Tunisians.
15 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm still here... The Turkish zombie continues to roam Constantinople... Searching for brains.
15 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Long may the glorious sultan reign.
18 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Looks like I'm toast. Everyone have a good rest of the game.
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Pausing for Christmas week. I've received a pause request for this one, so will be unpausing Jan 1. Enjoy your holidays everyone.
02 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Sorry, I meant to say unpausing Jan 2. Good luck everyone.
02 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Welcome back everybody. Happy new year
04 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Italy :(
04 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: i am the world's sense of balance.
12 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well darn. I was maintaining some small hope that i could pull off a victory here, but alas, my game is over. My draw vote is in. yes, Russia, even you get to survive this.
13 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Unless Austria fails to vote draw in time and Italy steals Ankara first... just sayin’ :P
13 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: that would be mean.
13 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Very mean...
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Dont we need to cut russia first guys?
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Think its DIAS
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Doesn’t depend on my moves, so if Italy’s against it, we may as well call it now
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I opted not to take Sev this year so you could prevent the German solo. I'm still very much involved in this game and making strategic choices.

Also, Italy has shown he won't take Ank for multiple years. This tournament is going to be a tough one for everyone. Let's just get our draw and go to the next one, yeah?
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Heh. Find it somewhat baffling but if Italy doesnt cut this spring then I'm happy to take the draw.
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm not killing Russia because he serves a strategic purpose in preventing Austria from thinking about a solo attempt involving turkey. That's why. Also, if I take any centers from Austria or France, Germany wins. this is why it is a draw.
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm also not feeling particularly murderous at the moment. Maybe I will later.
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: later as in... round 3? Yes.
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Wait... who are we still waiting on?
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I think the game is over. In this tournament there is no point on cutting players from the draw.
15 Jan 20 UTC Oh ho! The final fake-out! Well done, Austria, if a final push like that had succeeded, the solo was yours as i had said all along! Clever clever
15 Jan 20 UTC Haha no final push, germany. You deserve your position as largest draw member. Lets call it once Russia has disbanded
15 Jan 20 UTC or, we could draw now since number of players in the draw doesn't matter.
15 Jan 20 UTC Russia shall never disband!
16 Jan 20 UTC Are we not done yet? Is no one else curious about who everybody is?
17 Jan 20 UTC Whenever Austria is ready...
17 Jan 20 UTC *insert jeopardy music here*
17 Jan 20 UTC Good game everyone. Wp Germany in particular
17 Jan 20 UTC GG all. It was an interesting game.
Germany deserved the small reward of the biggest country for a really well played game.
17 Jan 20 UTC I enjoyed it.
17 Jan 20 UTC Yeah, I wish it hadn't taken more than 3 months lol, but it was a well played game.
17 Jan 20 UTC Many high-quality players in this match, well done everyone. Best of luck to you in the next round
