27 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1904: somebody needs to vote unpause probably
27 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1904: speaking from experience, lol
28 Feb 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (damian): I've been asked to unpause this game. Since it looks like the pause you agreed on is over. I'm going to do so and reset the phase.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: What kind of Italy attacks Austria with England in the med? Just what the hell
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Tell me about it...
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: And France too! I'm starting to think I'm not as likable as I thought.
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: I didn't delete my fleet for this nonsense
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: What kind of austria attacks Russia with a clear IT in the works. *sips tea* oh wait was I not supposed to say that?
01 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1904: I think we've all committed our fair share of nonsense in this game, maybe with a couple exceptions...
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Italy belongs in tier 3
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I've seen more professional, reasonable, people in a kindergarten class. Perhaps you belong in Pre-K?
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hahaha, maybe :D
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: But I still can't fathom what you're doing with England - like... Do you want him to win? Do you dislike Tunis that much? If you really didn't care about the med maybe you should have left me alone for all those years. If you're going to fuck me over at least like, do something with it instead of bending over to the EG
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hindsight is 20/20
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: What kind of Italy chills and holds Tyr with England in the fucking GoL
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah, maybe I am a bully, but I don't have to ever play you again so how the hell did you get here
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Is that the venom you use in FtF games or is the veil of anonymity that brings out the worst?
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hmmm, I don't feel very anon rn, I'd react similarly in a f2f situation
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Because honestly the move set baffles me, and you'd be lying if you didn't feel the same way Yonni - and I don't need to play nice with people who's goal is to screw me over every game because they don't like me.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I never said that my goal was to screw you over. We've worked together decently in the two other games we played. Considering your petulance this time though, that might have to change if I have the misfortune of being in the same game as you again. You shit on Capt Brad but at least he's fucking quiet for the most part.

I recognize that my moves were probably not optimal in hindsight, but your vitriol doesn't belong in a high level game regardless.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Honey, there's no hindsight to England being in GoL. Stop attacking Yonni and turn around, this is what you should have been doing from the moment England got into the MAO.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: How come you never call me honey :(
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I like Tyrolia staying French.
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: We should rename it the Great Republic of Honey.
17 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (damian): Game has been paused until tomorrow night by request.
19 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (damian): I guess Monday morning is when I’ll remember game unpaused
21 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: I definitely had a dream that I entered my builds for this game, and logged on now because I changed my mind about what I'd entered. Turns out we're still in retreats!
21 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Dreaming about diplomacy. That shows some dedication.
02 Apr 18 UTC This game isn't good for the nerves. Should we call it a draw and make ck and I tie?
02 Apr 18 UTC My draw vote has been since...I don't remember how long!
02 Apr 18 UTC I would be OK with a tie if you would.
02 Apr 18 UTC Yeah, why not? Just up to Italy and Turkey.
02 Apr 18 UTC I am not sure what either of them expect to have different. Turkey would get a teeny tiny bump in dots, but that would be offset by Yonni or me having that gain in tournament points. If I weren't so naturally cautious, I'd be against it.
02 Apr 18 UTC I won't say no to surviving this shitshow lol
02 Apr 18 UTC Teeny tiny bump in dots can mean making top board
02 Apr 18 UTC Well, maybe. It depends on whether eturnage is hypothetically fighting the winner of the contet between Yonni and me for seventh.
03 Apr 18 UTC The dot grabbing isn't worth it.
03 Apr 18 UTC I needed the points though. I was eliminated in the other games.
03 Apr 18 UTC I have a feeling the margin between 7th and 8th will be greater than the 7 bonus points you get from finishing third. Probably be a week or two before we know though.
03 Apr 18 UTC No way I'm in the hunt. I needed the points just to avoid getting bumped downward. I have no shot at the top board.
03 Apr 18 UTC I think Yonni and CK split the seven bonus points, so 9.5 each for this game. I've got a total of 26 for the whole set of games.
03 Apr 18 UTC Gg guys. Eturnage, how many were you gonna grab from me?
03 Apr 18 UTC Neat.

I assume Stack that you intended to take Holland and Belgium>
03 Apr 18 UTC ?
03 Apr 18 UTC I was trying to figure out how many SCs eturnage was going to take from Yonni so that I could force you and Yonni to tie. I was probably going to take Munich and support Yonni to Rome, hoping that put both of you on 5.

I need a good result in my last game to have a shot, but if either you are or Yonni get more marginal positions in your remaining games, then either of you have 4ish fewer points as a result of that seemed like a better bet in my head than figuring who to allocate all 7 bonus points to.
03 Apr 18 UTC *either of you having 4 fewer points owin to tying instead of making a clean 3rs, tbc
03 Apr 18 UTC I just got stabbed in my R3 game so it's looking tough there. Happy to have this game over with though. None of them are going that well when I've got this many on the go.
03 Apr 18 UTC The bottom line I arrived at, though, is that since I got one 0pt game and you've both got good a chance at a good result in 2/3 games and some points in this game, you're both ahead of me no matter what in the race for the top board. That conclusion made it hard to see these last couple moves as consequential.
03 Apr 18 UTC I was planning on trying for Trieste, Budapest, and Moscow. I could only take two for sure unless you left Trieste open. I assumed Yonni would get Rom and Nap and maybe Munich. Eventually, I would have talked to Stack. Would Consider supporting CK to Bud to make sure he and Yonni stayed even. I would have coordinated with Stack to give us a better chance to make sure you tied, I think.

All games are 1 point--even eliminations.
03 Apr 18 UTC Stack and I were openly discussing the points system and he did a great rambling analysis that inspired me to re-read the points rules.
