03 Feb 19 UTC Texas I should've stabbed you one year earlier, I was REALLY thinking about it too. I regret it but well played, and good teamwork
03 Feb 19 UTC @BC you tried the wrong person bro
03 Feb 19 UTC I was in doubt.
However, I saw the military deployed at the border, decided to attack.
In order to fight California it needed more careful preparation :(
03 Feb 19 UTC GG!
However, it was a bit disappointing that there are many people who are missing on the way.
03 Feb 19 UTC This game was predetermined from the start, yet I'm really happy it didn't end up that way. From 2002 on, I was sure of the Californian solo, and I was really mad at Texas for not pivoting sooner.

Regarding my game, I made a lot of mistakes. I also got really lucky with the Cuba CD which allowed my hegemony over the Caribbean. Texas, I'm glad you stabbed at the right time, because otherwise, it would've been over.

Another thing that stopped the solo was an excellent, excellent Quebec. Quebec really stepped up to the plate and an excellent job to them for really scrounging from nothing.

One reason for my mistakes is because I did this while working and on my commute home. (I was at a friend's house afterwards.) So, sorry if I made any mistakes, but happy about this draw. I expected what happened to happen, but not the draw itself. GG all.
03 Feb 19 UTC It's hard to pull off live games at the best of times, but one with this many players is bound to have more. That said, this could have been called- NMR: The Game.
03 Feb 19 UTC TY for the kind words, Magnetic.
03 Feb 19 UTC FYI, I'm also surprised that you drew, Cali. I figured that even if you couldn't solo in this situation, you could have come very close.
03 Feb 19 UTC No problem, NEFS! I'm glad you took a 'page out of my book' and took over for a player. :-)

So, what I learned from this is that the Rams will win tomorrow, but the Patriots will certainly give a good fight. We'll see though!
03 Feb 19 UTC My SB party will end in drinking out of sadness for many if that's the case, so I hope not ;) Cheers!
03 Feb 19 UTC Quebec did a damn fine job up north, I commend him on stalemating me enough to slow me down
03 Feb 19 UTC I figured you all deserved the draw for the effort, and I had been at it for quite some time and i already saw that I would have to fight texas for a long time to even consider a solo, which I didn't see as worth it
03 Feb 19 UTC But #flyeaglesfly I can't root for either SB team
03 Feb 19 UTC @ California, how so? I'm trying to gain some supply centers and you were the closest threat and I didn't know what your intention was! My mistake was going to Greenland after a new person took over Quebec!
