05 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Brazil]:Hi folks, sorry about my nmr. I'm at the national convention of the Libertarian Party in Las Vegas right now (you might catch a glimpse of me on CSPAN). Any chance I could get a pause until monday?
05 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Brazil]:Actually, I think I would be fine if we simply refrain from finalizing.
05 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Frozen-Antarctica]:NE Indian is going to be a nasty little retreat for Oz to deal with...
06 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Oz]:it's manageable I think.
06 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Libya]:Arghh.. misordered Tibet. :'( I really hate stuff like that, support in the wrong way. Oz his tank destroyed and a build less this turn may be the difference between victory or death with opposition organized as well as you guys. :)
06 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Oz]:It's quite clear the Tibetans are rebelling against the repressive Libyan dictatorship...
06 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2022: [Libya]:And my phone is as well.. For some reason its the third he posted that, even days after.. and they call this thing a smart phone.. tsk tsk.
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2023: [Oz]:Sorry, I noticed there were a lot of votes for pauses....should we be pausing for some reason?
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2023: [Frozen-Antarctica]:FLEET POLAND
17 May 12 UTC Spring, 2025: [Brazil]:Sorry about the NMR, folks. Believe it or not I was reading press and getting ready to input orders when there was a power outage that lasted pretty much the whole night. They seem to be an increasingly common occurrence - apparently California is devolving into a third world country.
19 May 12 UTC Spring, 2025: [Argentina]:Crap. Now it is my turn, but I have no excuse.
19 May 12 UTC Spring, 2025: [USA]:Think you guys can keep this going forever? Then it won't hit my GR. :-)
19 May 12 UTC Spring, 2025: [Oz]:I'm actually going travelling for two weeks starting Wednesday...I'll have my ipad with me, and I'll try to play, but I ask that we don't finalize moves until I get back.
20 May 12 UTC Spring, 2025: [Argentina]:Gotcher back!
20 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2025: [Western-Canada]:yaaawwwnnnnn
26 May 12 UTC Spring, 2026: [Oz]:Sorry guys, I'm backpacking and it's kinda hard to do orders and check messages but I'm trying!
27 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2026: [Quebec]:Need a pause?
27 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2026: [Oz]:Ummmm, I think I should be OK....but maybe we can hold back on finalizing...life will be back to normal in about a week
31 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2026: [Frozen-Antarctica]:My oh my look how ripe the west coast of north america is.
04 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Oz]:OK guys, I'm back and should be a bit more responsive now :)
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Argentina]:Tis a sad day indeed in South America...
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Argentina]:...I blame it all on Draugnar.
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Libya]:Blame it on Brazil ;)
06 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Argentina]:I am starting to feel......consolidated.
06 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Brazil]:Well, you can be assured that I played no part in the process, for whatever that's worth.
06 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Brazil]:Ouch. I don't think I've ever had to order four disbands in one turn before.
06 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2027: [Oz]:Ha, I think you did but you didn't realize it.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Frozen-Antarctica]:It would seem as though Libya has given up his solo push :( How disappointing. You and Quebec could have knocked out Europe for the 3-way at least.

But looks like I'll have one less game to be following soon
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Oz]:And no more commentary from a dead nation....
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [USA]:And who the fuck made OZ God of Diplomacy chat? :-) Comment away Antartica. You participated and have every right to continue to influence the game. Tell OZ to kiss your golden ass. :-)
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Yes, Oz, if you could warm it up by kissing it, that'd be great. Its cccccold down here with all the ppppppppenguins :-)
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Libya]:"Well, you can be assured that I played no part in the process, for whatever that's worth." Yeah you did Brazil ;) You should have taken my deal.. Poor argentina.. so dependent on your choices..
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Oz]:Yeah Brazil, the convoy to Africa was your undoing....
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Oz]:F-A: Here I thought I burned your ass ;)
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Brazil]:I did take your deal. I had been attacking Oz for two years when Quebec stabbed me. I couldn't very well turn on Oz when he had an army sitting in Bolivia and I had no way to counter it; first things had to come first - and I told you (Libya) so.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Libya]:That is pretty far from what happened..

You have been collaborating with Oz in the years 2021 - spring 2025, until after the convoy you made to my continent. You only started fighting Oz AFTER I made a deal with him to wipe you out, after you went as far as to actually convoy to Africa. ONLY THEN did he attack you. First the convoy, then Oz attacked you. Dont get mixed up there.. :) In the year of the convoy Oz actually tried to support you into Peru as well..

The whole world was too busy fighting me. I really reckon had you taken me up on my deal from the year I proposed it the first time, their were many, the first on the onset of my move - the deal: to attack Antarctica with my help. You could have grown, let me grow to about 35 - 38, and then help stop me, you would have had the critical mass to be in a draw and plenty of time to stop me. Also, because an orderly retreat by me wouldnt have been possible anymore when I would have been at around 38. It would have been an instant draw, with you in it. Me not even getting to 30 was safety buffer enough to start cooperating again with Oz and my other friends ;) .

I must say, I have been pretty dissapointed by the lack of expansion of Q, A and B when I made my move, but I was pretty distracted around that time with RL, I should have communicated better with you guys. Still Q obviously had the fall back plan we see in motion right now.. ;) His success speaks for itself.

So does your annihilation Brazil muwhahaha.. Just kidding of course ;) But I must say, you are a very stubborn guy Brazil..

Dont go hiding in the rain forest now man ;) Good game though.
08 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2028: [Western-Canada]:Are ya'll about to finish this game? I'd like to get it off my wall. :-P
08 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Oz]:this game has lasted longer than most of my relationships. what does this say about me and commitment?
08 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Libya]:Haha.. you treat allies better than your girls?

This is the longest game I played by far.
08 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Oz]:maybe more committed to allies?
08 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Quebec]:I tend to 'stab' my girlfriend, often, but not a knife in the back. Maybe it's just your definition of 'stabbing' when it comes to relationships, Oz??
08 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Oz]:I have no problem with stabbing...you don't need commitment for that.

I think I might convoy too often...that is problematic as well...
09 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Western-Canada]:Are you saying your seamen go all over the place?
09 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Libya]:No he was implying something, via a cute metaphor, so he would remain charming and not degrade into blunt explicism. ;)
09 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Oz]:we need like buttons for webdip
09 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 2028: [Oz]:Does anyone else think it looks like my ships in the Western Pacific tried to do a carebear stare at Quebec's fleets?
10 Jun 12 UTC [Argentina]:Can I now start making comments from Dip-Heaven like FA?
10 Jun 12 UTC [Oz]:go crazy!
10 Jun 12 UTC [Oz]:good game all! hopefully my current relationship will last longer than this game did!
10 Jun 12 UTC [Oz]:this game also taught me how amateur i am...great playing with some experienced players.
