31 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1: Best of luck to everyone!
31 Jan 12 UTC Spring, 1: I know its a bit early to start worrying, what with 9 hours left in the phase and all, but could the players who have logged in already agree to cancel the game should there be a spring NMR?
01 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1: i only have 1 request and that is: no hate messaging, its a game and supposed to be fun so i really hate when people start complaining and trying to irratate me - thank you
01 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1: While hate messaging speaks more to the character of the player than anything else, language - be it of any kind - can be used for pure diplomatic purposes. Heck, I've seen players NMR on purpose as part of their strategy. In general civil games are more enjoyable, but anything goes
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 3: tsk tsk Egypt, you should know you can't self-dislodge units in diplomacy
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 3: i figured since it wasn't my unit going in it would work. This is honestly the first time I've ever thrown myself at someone so I've never tried to support someone else into my territories.
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 3: If you go to the help section and scroll down at the test pages, you can see all the movement rules listed out, like the beleaguered convoy test, convoying through coastal territories test, etc.
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 3: sweet thanks
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: Good game Egypt
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: wow this game has turned out sym so far.
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: sym?
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: symetrical, with the fall of egpyt and two alliances, both alliance has exactly half the board, and not only that there is a 'greater' power and a 'slightly lesser than greater' power in each alliance.
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: huh, well look at that.
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: Oh I am slain!
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: Oh I am slain!
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 5: laugh
15 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 6: Rome? Oh come on, it was a good game until now
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: Guys, Rome isn't showing. How are we going to resolve this? Put in all holds this year and call for a sub? I'd be willing to move back to my pre-NMR positions and get a replacement.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: With Egypt already throwing in the towel, I say wait for him to CD and just draw it.
It seems a waste of time to wind back positions and wait for a sub.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: Alright, I can agree to that. If he comes back we'll just keep going?
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: Certainly
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: I say this, if he doesn't come back, we crush him and then draw, otherwise it ain't fair.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: If he doesn't come back he is out - it will be a 3-way draw.
17 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: Sorry Rome, do draw with you in
17 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 6: What, the hell, Rome comes back only to NMR? I'm sorry I didn't enter orders, everyone, but that was because I thought it would be a CD and then draw.

I could've kept my freakin centers in Egypt too. DAmmit
18 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 7: So are we back to normal now?
18 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 7: yes and no it seems that i will be done with the internet and all video games for the next six months, starting monday im getting back into shape, ill be doing three sports with my friends and the p90x workout sessions so ill be too tired to focus on things like diplomacy, thank you carthage or your support and thank you persia for a fun challenging match, and thank you all for no hate messaging.

have a nice day everyone and good luck
18 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 7: I say we draw now. Rome put in a good game.
21 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 7: draw now?
21 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 7: It's a shame the game had to end this way. It would have been very exciting had RRome stayed in
21 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 7: I say draw, it's not really not fair to me to have to face your alliance, when my ally just sort of dropped. Your really the only one left.
21 Feb 12 UTC And it was fair that Egypt thought he could concede his dots to you? I don't recall you complaining about that?
21 Feb 12 UTC From an ethical standpoint, I don't go on solo runs if there are CD's and NMR's late in the game. So rather than take out three of Greece's centers, I chose the defensive moves I currently did. It stinks, because I think I could've done it. Oh well, good game everyone
