22 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck RJ! Not that you need it :D
22 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I gave it away, didn't I?
22 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1901: So is it teccles or meme or teccle-meme?
22 Dec 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I mean, when your team has the #1 FvA player on the site you'd be pretty insane not to put him on every game :D Unless you're planning to elo boost everyone else by just telling them what to do!

This is Meme right here. Or is it Teccles? Muahaha
23 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: *counting the number of instances of the word 'insane' on meme's blog*
24 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi all, I will be pausing this game now for our holiday pause. I hope everyone has a happy and healthy holidays, and see you on the 1st.
05 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry about the delay here, didn't get used to checking the site again after the holidays. Won't happen again! :D
05 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1902: np. You've got 3 excused missed turns, that means it wouldn't have been an NMR either way, I think?
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: I feel like Anti-Alpine might have been a misnomer :D
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: Question for you, do you think we have the Alpine rated too low on the tier list?

It seems to counter both the Italian and the Porcupine hard. And here we're seeing it fare pretty well against the opening that's supposed to counter it!
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: I mean, AA vs A is definitely not a secure win for A. But I don't think any game is decided the first year.
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: As for the rankings, I think the Waffle is better, but people know the Waffle inside and out. Here's a secret: when I choose openings, I usually try to pick an opening my opponent does not play themselves. If my opponent always plays the Waffle as France, then it'll be easy for them to see the board from my perspective, if I play the Waffle against them. If I want them to make mistakes, then I should put them in a position they're not used to.
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: (I don't always choose openings like that, but most of the time.)
13 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's difficult though, when you don't know who your opponent is...
16 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1904: 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.
16 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry about that! Busy weekend. Have readied up!
22 Jan 21 UTC Well played! This was a fun one :D
22 Jan 21 UTC You're absolutely right that I'm really unfamiliar playing against the Tyrolia line. Teccles and I both actually!
22 Jan 21 UTC Yeah, gg! What a year 1904 was..
