Game drawn
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Anyone and everyone (but me haha) is up for grabs. I just want to get it down to 4. Preferably 3
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Libya]:So, India, Oz, Libya and Kenya? ;-)
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [India]:Sounds ok to me.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [India]:Seriously though, Brazil, would you consider a 5 way once WC is gone?
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:No, I would not consider a 5-way. it is very possible to narrow it more. Don't mean to be a dick, but, well.....I'm gonna be a dick haha
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Libya]:And if the four of us resist?
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Well, why would you resist narrowing the draw one more and getting a bigger win? I mean, you think Kenya can't be taken out without bad ramifications?
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:I mean, I'm not going to pretend like I can take all of you on and I won't try to.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Libya]:I just think we are all ready for a resolution.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:I think that's not a good reason to end a game that has been pretty high quality all said and told.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Could we compromise and just bring it down to 4 then?
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Libya]:The problem there is that we upset the balance. You and India are strong and well positioned, and would take a very difficult effort to eliminate. Taking out Kenya, Oz or Libya would most likely involve an increase in strength for either you or India that would put you in striking range of a solo, and the loss of one of the 3 of us would make that solo drive harder to stop. Simply put, you are the only one who gains in a continuation. You are the closest to a solo, and have the best position to maintain the lead--your naval power and secure base in the Americas makes that so. If we join you in taking out Kenya, for example, then we make your position even stronger, while not really strengthening our own position. The gain of a few webdiplomacy points isn't worth the risk.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Well, what if you guys take on Kenya and I do nothing? No risk in that, right?
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [India]:If you withdraw all of your armies to America, and then move them inland so they can't be convoyed, I will consider it. I will not speak for anyone else, and I would rather just eliminate WC and draw.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:I think you're just annoyed that I took Skandinavia. Why should I hold my troops back when everyone else has armed borders? My Pacific units are vulnerable and I'm going to need troops on the shore there in case some Asiatic hordes start coming over.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 2015: [Brazil]:Well, I'll actually partially comply. After a long, hard campaign, my units are going on a tour of North America, from the Deep South all the way to Alberta!
27 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Brazil]:And WC lives to see another day!

India, could you please turn the Philippines blue? I think they'd look much nicer that way. I'm going to add some more green to North America (like I did with Baffin Island)
27 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2015: [India]:I can indeed do that, I'm also considering moving an army over to unneutralize the neutral territories, if Libya doesn't mind.

On another note, my family has scheduled an impromptu vacation for the weekend, and I have no idea if I will have internet access. I'd like to play it safe and pause (just for Saturday and Sunday) if the rest of you don't mind.
27 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Brazil]:no sweat. I'll put in a pause vote an you vote pause when you have to go
29 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:@libya please pause for india
29 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:I shall not enter the pause, I am hoping that I can be eliminated from this game before it is required.
29 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:Its possible that you could still be alive, WC, but we shall see.
29 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:WC - India has not entered orders and he requested the pause. Please enter a pause vote now.
30 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:Alright, I'm back, thanks everyone.
30 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:waiting on kenya and WC
31 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:Just on kenya now
31 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:Kenya has no incentive to unpause. We might have to force it.
31 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:He talked to me last night lol. Give it till Tuesday night and then email the mods
01 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:Bye, King Atom.
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Oz]:So Brazil v Rest of the world?
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:Tedious, isn't it?
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Kenya]:so maybe the rest of the world should stop fighting each other and just remove brazil
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Brazil]:Or maybe we should remove Kenya and I will enter my draw vote
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Oz]:Is that before or after you've thrown every fleet you can at the Pacific and India? Or after you start moving against Libya.?
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Brazil]:Before, preferably
01 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Oz]:lol
02 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:Brazil is making a move on me. He is going for the solo, y'all.
02 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:I will not support or endorse any more attacks on Kenya. I think we should leave him alone and focus on stopping Brazil.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2017: [India]:Very well. Sorry Kenya, do you mind if I keep Kenya?
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Libya]:Just take the draw Brazil. You aren't going to get there.
03 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Brazil]:Aww, come on, you won't even let me try? I got 3 this year, and if Oz dies off, victory is practically mine.
05 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2018: [India]:That's a huge if, I seriously doubt that will happen.

Will you vote draw when I start eating you from behind?
05 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2018: [Brazil]:Surely. Give me some time and I can knock some of your fleets out, though. As can be seen, I can easily penetrate your lines, and you can penetrate mine
05 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 2018: [Brazil]:But if Kenya goes into CD or NMR's again, I will draw on the condition that he resigns or is knocked out. I give you my word for that and go ahead and report me to the mods if I renege on that word. While I would love a solo, I don't want it to be tainted by so many NMR's by a player who would be crucial too your success
07 Nov 11 UTC [Libya]:Well, he's gone.
07 Nov 11 UTC [Oz]:Thats it Brazil, are we drawing or not?
07 Nov 11 UTC [Brazil]:I will keep to my word. While I think I would have eventually overwhelmed you in the pacific with my fleets (and by the way, neither Len nor New Zealand were covered! Had I not played so conservatively, I could have got Oz really good!). Its a shame that this game was spoiled by Kenya, but I recognize that his CD could not be helped by you and gives me an unfair advantage. Good game by all, it was a pleasure playing with you all and perhaps we could play again sometime
07 Nov 11 UTC [Libya]:Good game, all.
07 Nov 11 UTC [Oz]:It was a good game, I think you would have taken another couple of centers off me Brazil, but I think with India's help we'd have hit you pretty hard at home as well. I was definitely lucky to still be alive in this one. Thanks to India for being a sound ally all the way through. Enjoyed it, shame about CD's though, seems to be a problem in all world games (although I've only played one before)
08 Nov 11 UTC [India]:Good game all. Brazil, you definitely had a chance, but I think Libya and Kenya (had he entered orders) would have forced you out of Africa, and that would have given Oz and I the momentum to push you back in the Pacific and eventually the Atlantic. Then again, if you had taken both of Oz's vacant centers that turn, things could have gone very differently.
