18 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:lmfao @FA you were supposed to SUPPORT the move to south west, not both move there xD
18 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:southeast*
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [USA]:Why do I always get the U.S.? :( I've played like 5 games on this map, I was the U.S. 4 times ;'(
22 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Europe]:bad luck i think :/
24 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Kenya]:I guess that's my lot! Well played S.Africa and Libya, nice stabs.
29 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2004: [Pacific-Russia]:Libya becoming supa strong 0.o >.<
29 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2004: [Libya]:As you all will see I am a reasonable ruler, no tyrant like that other fellow.
30 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2004: [Kenya]:Oh I dunno bout that lol the poor subjugated Kenyans may disagree :D
02 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [Pacific-Russia]:Well I'm about to be subjugated to Indian rule, hope i have more luck than you Kenya under my new dictators XD
03 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [South-Africa]:I wonder how great Britain feels being ruled by South Africans...
03 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [India]:Do South Africans like potatoes?
03 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [South-Africa]:South Africans love potatoes.
04 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [South-Africa]:I bet I can outlast Quebec, Frozen Antarctica, Europe, and China. What do you guys think?
13 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [South-Africa]:South Africa survives :D
13 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Brazil]:The cyan is resilient.
13 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Libya]:Yes, I've been trying to occupy ZImbabwe for years with no luck. I've tried to buy them off, but they won't even accept their own currency...
13 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [South-Africa]:This may be my final year alive. I will survive as long as possible
13 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [USA]:Lol @Libya
13 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [South-Africa]:I like russian money way better. you should try bribing me with that
17 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [South-Africa]:Libya, watch out. A group of rebels are building up an army in Zimbabwe and are planning to attack Botswana
17 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:I hear those rebels are being funded by some extremists from St. Petersburg.
18 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [South-Africa]:how did you find that out... now I have to move my base of operations... but to where?
24 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Russia]:May the tsar of Russia live the rest of his happy days in Poland. Good luck everybody else, I think this will probably be my last turn.
25 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2012: [Oz]:I take last orders for kangaroosteaks, soon they'll be gone.
28 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Brazil]:We are still planning to draw, correct Libya? Oz only has two more SC's. I don't think you need to keep advancing on my position.
28 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Libya]:Correct. Establishing a perimeter, not advancing on your position - none of my moves have been aggressive. Argentina, are the two of you finishing off Oz or would you like my help? It doesn't seem necessary, but I thought I'd ask. Please make it quick.
28 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2014: [Brazil]:Sounds great Libya, we should be able to take NSW and Victoria by the end of this year.
29 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Oz]:I surrender.
29 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:Sigh Argentina. Why couldn't you have said you were going to Tasman Sea? I just didn't want to write another epic convoy order.
29 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:Well, not taking out Oz this year, nothing adjacent to NSW.
29 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:Convoying to Queensland.
29 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:Actually, just moving there. Not sure why the scripts for processing convoy orders are f'in up now. It keeps saying:
Fleet alert Parameter 'fromTerrID' set to invalid value '42'.
Weird, because I'm just trying to convoy Colombia to Queensland via NE Pac and Pac Islands.
30 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:How do I contact a moderator about a game issue?
30 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Brazil]:Libya, would you please just reconsider your ambition to solo and draw? It is really unfair to keep playing if my convoy orders are refusing to allow me to input them. Surely, you would rather win on your skill rather than from a veritable technicality?
01 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Libya]:I don't understand, my convoying orders are working just fine. I convoyed an army to Turkey 2 turns ago. See if you can get it fixed.
01 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Shrug. Damage is already past done. What is the # of SC's you need to hit for a solo anyway?
01 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Spring, 2014: [Libya]:Correct. Establishing a perimeter, not advancing on your position - none of my moves have been aggressive.

Great justification for what was obviously offensive movements.
01 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Libya]:Yes, I was a little bit transparent at that point. Not that it mattered.

And the # of SCs needed is 44. Which is why I was really hoping to get 5 last turn. I am honestly just trying to end this game in a satisfying fashion, but I can't justify Oz being included in a draw. Going for a solo is guaranteed to end it by 2016. That's why I said "make it quick", because if Oz were eliminated I would agree to the draw regardless of my solo attempt.

ps. Sorry Oz, no offense. You've fought valiantly.

01 Dec 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Again Libya, I understand your need to end the game quickly. I just can't agree with your reluctance to share the spoils of victory with the allies that helped you achieve it.
01 Dec 11 UTC [Brazil]:There is no way we can prevent Libya from staying above 44 SC's, Argentina. Really no point in turning orders in, really.
01 Dec 11 UTC [Brazil]:The funny thing is that had Argentina and I not bounced in Tasman a few moves back, we would have been able to eliminate Oz that year and drawn. Le Sigh!
02 Dec 11 UTC [Libya]:The pot was split rather appropriately, I think. I am just glad to have finished. Time for a Diplomacy break. Good game everybody.
02 Dec 11 UTC [Oz]:I survived :D
02 Dec 11 UTC [Oz]:I survived :D
02 Dec 11 UTC [Brazil]:Well played, jackalb. And great survival Oz!
