14 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ok. I will make a dash over to assist in that. Do you want me to go throuh Italy or Germany?
14 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: mwaa ha ha ha....
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Can we ready up for builds and retreats?
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Not to a be a dick, but there is a time for phases, that some people actually use for negotiations -- the game is called "Diplomacy". If you are looking for gunboat, then you are in the wrong game. I don't mean to be a dick...not trying to be....but let's put an end right now to the discussion about readying up early. Apart from negotiations, some people also have real life responsibilities, and knowing when game turns will flip is important.

Sorry Turley -- again, not trying to be a dick, but I can pretty much assure you that I typically won't be readying up.

Please DO feel free to actually use PM to negotiate and press with your neighbors during this time, though...
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Lol ok. A simple "I need the time to negotiate, sorry" would've sufficed.
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry - but I think we are all experienced gamers here -- we shouldn't have to put up with the calls to ready up in a tournament...just like we shouldn't have to put up with people complaining to us in PM that someone lied. I expected a higher quality game....
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: "I expected a higher quality game..."
how exactly is asking If we could ready up during builds and retreats indicative of the quality of this game? It was a simple question and I was not complaining or being a dick or anything. It's just that from my experience with the press so far, there isn't any major trouble with running out of time to negotiate.

There is no "putting up" with the calls because it really only requires a yes or no response. Thank you for your sentiment but it's quite unnecessary.
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: In the last League I played in, I used the downtime to trade recipes. I got a pretty intresting Chili Spagheti recipe from Draugnar.
Perhaps you two can bcome friends over a discussion over dome cheesecake recipies
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: hahah!
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: but but but .,., Austria - you haven't said a word to me, despite all your talk of press. I am frankly disappointed you have failed to share your sweet words with me :(
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: HOw is asking to ready up during <ANY CYCLE> indiciative of the quality of the game?

BECAUSE....I just had *TWO* discussion with people <NOT TURKEY> about how we will work our builds. THAT is what the game is supposed to be about, Turkey, not hurry up and play gunboat.

Discussions take place a VARIOUS points in the 25 hours....people are from around the world in the game. SO chill the fuck out. As for the "yes/no" as the only required reply....well...in fact....there is no reply at all required....because the damned question NEVER should have been asked.
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: FRANCE - I am an *superior* cheesecake maker, if you wish to trade words on that fine dessert. :)
15 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: ITALY - my dear boy...I offer you words....you have just failed to reply to me. I do wish that were not so...
17 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: i still like the idea to trade recipes!
17 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Perhaps, with the first death, we shall all share a celebratory recipe -- it will give us proper motivation! :)
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: I am looking forward to that cheesecake recipe.
19 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1903: I have to say this game is hilarious. I also can't help but wonder how many of these league games Krellin will wreck with his stupid openings. 4-way draw incoming.
19 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Italy....how about this....fuck off. Ahhhh ha ha ha ha. Quit your bitching, child.
19 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1903: First of all, I admit my opening move was a mistake. I ENTERD THE WRONG FUCKING ORDER, dumbass.

Second....yes....it's much better to be a predictable twat....much better if we all move exactly as expected. Grow up.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1903: You are one of a kind Krellin - I think you left out some choice insults and swearing though - so please continue.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Nawww...that was sufficient.
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I believe we arenowed two recipes.
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Are owed
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Just so everyone knows. I contacted Gold and he said he will be making the next set of games next weekend.
28 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: (goldfinger0303): Ingredients
Crust:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
Cheesecake:
24 ounces cream cheese
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Directions
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

Make the Crust: Stir all ingredients with fork and press into 8-inch springform pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Make the filling: Allow the cream cheese and eggs to sit out for about 1 hour before mixing. Mix the cream cheese and sugar in a mixer on low speed. Add the eggs 1 at a time; then add the vanilla.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake at 275 degrees F for 90 minutes. Turn the oven off but do not open the oven door for 3 hours. Refrigerate for 8 hours before removing from the pan.
28 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Thats very similar to the recipe I use except I negate the vanilla and add 1/4 cup of lemon juice for tang.
Sitting in the cooling oven for 3 hours was something I never needed to do since it was always cooked through but at 275 degrees....I suspect it doesnt dry out too quick.
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Dammit, I'm feeling wild today. I'm going to go ready.
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Me too.
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Im not - the sweet smell of survival will be all too short I fear.
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Go ready and I'll support you back to Venice...
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Deal...
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Ready as I'll ever be...
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: *grin*
03 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Sigh.
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: gameID=156306 New game ID. Villanova is the password
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Better draw this one then and get over to the next quick smart!

No time to waste!
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, welcome to the 5 way draw Italy.
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Stalemate line is set - bugger all advantage to anyone in prolonging it or having 1 less in the draw - its hardly material is it?
08 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Let me put in another way Turkey and Russia - its 19 v 13 + 2. If I die your stalemate line fails.
08 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm not quite ready to call the draw. For speed though, I'm happy to ready up.
09 Mar 15 UTC We all set to ready up?
09 Mar 15 UTC Giving Germany time to think about it :D
10 Mar 15 UTC *thinks*
10 Mar 15 UTC Thanks for the time to think it over. Maybe I dont want to draw anymore!
10 Mar 15 UTC Booooooo!
10 Mar 15 UTC I've thought.
11 Mar 15 UTC Sorry for the delay. I always intended to draw with my friend Steingrim when we were even on SCs (note my supportnof him in Moscow) but when the other game started it threw another whole facet to this League format that I hadnt considered so I just wanted to make sure drawing was the right thing to do.
Thanks for the game especially to Stein who was a great ally. Well played Wusti on finding a way to hold on.
11 Mar 15 UTC Interesting game - havent really played with my back to the wall for the entire match like that for a LOOONG time.

Good job everyone.
11 Mar 15 UTC Yes, GG. I can echo the great ally sentiments for dyager, and some good exchanges with xpedior and yoyo.
11 Mar 15 UTC Awesome game! Looking forward to the next one.
