18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Argentina]:ok, mawson to vostok supported by southern indian, java can support into northeast indian if you want, southwest indian can go to northwest, spo can support pac islands into new zealand? what do you think?
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Argentina]:oh and east pacific to pacific islands?
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Argentina]:haha oh wow, this is the global...
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Argentina]:guess we'll just have to change some things
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Europe]:I'll attempt a diversion: "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" ... or maybe a Jedi mind trick: "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Brazil]:XDD
18 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Oz]:*raises his fist to the heavens*
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:lol, someone took over near east.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Brazil]:lol
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:"European Benevolence: Cheerfully bringing civil order to countries in distress for over a decade."
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:...And we sincerely appreciate your kind donation of points to this cause.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:So therefore, the European Conglomerate nominates the new owner of Near-East for the Nobel Peace Prize for Humanitarian Contribution.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Brazil]:XD
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Brazil]:Kyr is still part of Near-East, at least i still have his colors :P
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:uh oh--- i'll take care of that ;-)
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:...And Pakistan too
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Brazil]:be careful, can be an invisible unit...
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:We'll use extreme caution. According to intelligence reports, Pakistan is very close to perfecting Klingon Cloaking Technology.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:The hat-trick trifecta of nerdy references is complete! I've successfully referenced Star Wars, Star Trek and The Wizard of Oz in global chat.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Near-East]:<weeps invisibly>
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Brazil]:see you next time near-east!!
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:muahahahhaa.
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:why havent we killed india yet? >_>
19 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [USA]:Because you are nice war mongering megalomaniacs! ;-)
20 May 10 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Argentina]:but we are nice.
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:alright Brazil - let's finish this game off this very season
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:it's the sporting thing to do
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:you've been a valiant warrior against your enemies and a faithful ally to your friends - it's only fitting that you make a swift end, not let me bleed out
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:otherwise, I will think less of you
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:It was my choice, my friend. I was the bloodthirsty general :p
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:yep, one of my allies ask me for not winning until you disappear, so i cannot say no, sorry man :)
20 May 10 UTC [Europe]:Oz has been a good sport and has not let his country collapse into civil disorder the way many of the others did when they began to lose. I propose that we go ahead and end it and let him survive with a few points. instead of wiping him out. We will all still finish with more than our 5 point investment.
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:i agree with you, hey argentina what do you think? is fair to let him to survive right?
20 May 10 UTC [Europe]:What say you, friend Argentina?
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:noble opponents!
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:XDD
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:I'm game for that. He can keep victoria. I want New Zealand's Maoris for my army. XD
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:except the problem is brazil has to take 2 of mine to win..unless he just goes ahead and takes wau and nsw or victoria or something else. I say we leave him a supply center. :D
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:no argentina no problem, i only need 1 for win, so support northwest indian into wau and then the game will finish, what do you say?
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:doh, but cant I get new zealand in this deal ;D
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:and yeah i'll support nw into wau
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:XD probably in the next game :)

btw, thanks everybody for this game, it has had very good moments; i really enjoyed it, thanks!!! Oz probably in other games we can get an alliance :)
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:hehe, yeah it was fun. i was surprised europe didnt want to stab you. that sealed your win right there. i wasnt going to make the first move against you even though everyone was bitching to me about you gaining momentum lol.
20 May 10 UTC [Brazil]:jajaja, it was the same all the people "advising" me to attack europe or argentina...of course it wasn't a good plan :D
20 May 10 UTC [Argentina]:ALSO, this game is so strange to me, because it really demonstrated the differences between risk and diplomacy. I play diplo with a risk mindset most of the time and I really expect stabs, but somehow we got through the entire game without stabbing each other >_> (me and brazil, anyway)
20 May 10 UTC [Oz]:yeah - that's the tradeoff on points-per-supply center. You need winner-take-all to motivate the final stab, especially it seems in World Diplomacy IX. In any case, great game which I really enjoyed
21 May 10 UTC [Europe]:I thoroughly enjoyed this game as well. A winner-take-all scenario would of course have made a difference in how we all played. I probably would have accidentally committed suicide along the way without my outstanding allies. I think I've completed maybe six games total since I found this site. This will be my first good points return. My thanks to Argentina and especially Brazil! Also Kudos to you for fighting the good fight, Oz.
21 May 10 UTC [Oz]:gg to all!
21 May 10 UTC [Oz]:a lot of work for no points :)
21 May 10 UTC [USA]:Congrats Gantz! They should have listened, I TRIED to warn them! ;-) Good game.
