28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:No, okay, Vietnam is not a good comparison. So what say you about nobody pausing for me in London - of comparable population density to the US eastern seaboard?
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:We still need 11 people to pause
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:Near-East -- did you ask for one? Not to mention, I'd be willing to bet that the population of this site (which is the relevant number for the discussion) is skewed very heavily towards the US.

I think a pause makes sense.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Western-Canada]:I'm willing to pause, but I will have to out of town and computers for a 4-day period in a couple of weeks and I picked this game because I expected it to be done, or mostly done before then. A few days delay though may take me right into my AFK time. Will I get the same consideration if that happens? What about other players with similar situations?
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:New gameplan -- everyone gang up on Western Canada so they can be done with the game before their trip. :D
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:It's a 1day/phase game, so it will go fast. We can always pause again if need be.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Western-Canada]:Like I said, I'm fine with pausing as long as I know I am not backstabbing myself.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:We have 9 pauses. 2 more! (i think)
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:No Libya I did not ask for one. I did not presume that the rest of the players in all of my games would grant me one, precisely because of the US bias on this site!
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Pacific-Russia]:I will also lose power; thanks everybody.
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:y'know what, I had the hump yesterday over what I saw as the America-centric view of the universe. But I have been watching the news over here in London this morning and it's starting to look dodgy. My Pause vote is done, stay safe everyone in NE USA.
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:We still need China, Brazil, Europe, Russia and Argentina to vote for pause.
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [South-Africa]:great the 2 veto powers of the UN that block everything are still not voting haha
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:Thanks for the considerations, NE.
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]::) sorry for being an ass!
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:Hahaha -- no worries, I hear you Brits are all cranky buggers anyway :D
29 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:Yeah....must be the weather that does it to us lol :-D
01 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2003: [India]:well, I guess since Europe not's pausing, we don't need a ppause.
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Kenya]:Kind of annoyed I messed up my convoy. I KNOW I didn't select South Australia :P
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Western-Canada]:Guess that plan's shot. May as well attack Argentina for me instead.
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Kenya]:I think I'll just invade Madagascar.
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Western-Canada]:In revenge for the movie?
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Quebec]:TOOOO MANY ARROWS
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:You can't beat my arrows! Best give up now :)
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Argentina]:Its about quality not quantity though.
Mine and Mexico's arrows are just messing with everyone's head by going across the whole map!!
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:Jeez, control your arrows, Argentina...
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Kenya]:Everyone's using arrows, and I'm just sitting here convoying.
10 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [India]:i would appreciate it if you stopped though
22 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Brazil]:and another game is ruined by greedy fuckers ... Who can you trust in this game? I don't think Libya and Kenya have known what Libya planned and don't to the same fault as me and trust him ...
22 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Kenya]:We're doing just fine.
23 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2009: [Libya]:I hate to say it, but without a little greed this game would always end in a 17-way draw.
23 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2009: [Quebec]:Well fuck it i gave up GG stabbing assholes
23 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2009: [Libya]:"GG stabbing assholes" is gonna be the name of my next game, I think.
23 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2009: [Quebec]:I may look for it
23 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 2009: [Kenya]:Anticipation is killing me.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Pacific-Russia]:How many supply centers are necessary to solo? Not that it really affects me, but I'm just wondering as far as Libya is concerned...
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Western-Canada]:44
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Pacific-Russia]:Thanks. I presume at some point a stop-the-leader alliance will be in order.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:It isn't already? I think it would be good.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Libya]:"Stop-the-leader"? No no -- *join* the leader! Let me help you become a part of the Global Libyan Alliance! We have delicious pies.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:Don't. I was part of that alliance. It doesn't turn out well.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:Well, it had to happen sometime, especially after you were putting a lot of your forces in India trying to gain control over me.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:Well, this turned out interestingly...
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Pacific-Russia]:Lol, didn't see that retreat coming. Good game, everyone.
25 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Libya]:Sad to see you go, PacRus. Good game!
26 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..!!!1! PACIFIC RUSSIA!
26 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:Also bye Quebec
26 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:I/m gonna try to stay alive untill Kenya is taken over. Then my game is complete.........
08 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 2013: [India]:woah, that's coming true
13 Dec 12 UTC [Libya]:Great game everyone. I hope no one that I stabbed took it personally. Best of luck to everyone in their next game -- as always, send me a message if you've got an opening in a game, I'd be glad to play against any of you again.
