14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: GameMaster: bh has voted for a draw.
Voted: ag7433,Rait,bh Remaining: Centurian.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: I don't like the way phpDiplomacy handles draw votes.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Argh, Curses!
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Everyone is here! Lets get rollin'
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Rait, are you willing to drop this paranoid crap and form up the line so we can end this?
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: That sounds like a terrible idea. Where do you come up with this stuff?
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Ok, ok. Let's just order all of our units to Yorkshire and let Centurian win. Who's with me?
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Me!
14 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Can I convoy my fleet through German units in MAO & NAO?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: ok Centurian, You see that it's a stalemate now & France plays an important role in keeping that line, so make it a draw & let's end it
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Give me some credit centurian. After the dirty sealion trickery you pulled on me, I've been a very efficient single fleet.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: As, I've said before, I'm never going to draw with more than 3 players. If France would prefer to die, then thats his choice.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: This is going to be a very long game...
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: No it won't. If France decides to support me then I will win soon. If he doesn't, I'm going to pull out of Mao, gascony, paris and Irish and Italy can kill him.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Why the hell would France support the only player who wants him dead?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: sounds nice to me - just start pulling Your units :) preferably You could also pull Moscow, Warsaw & Munich
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Maybe I could have Brest back too?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: @Turkey, maybe you should read back a little bit?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Doesn't the system auto-draw after 25 moves of no gain/loss in centers? So we'll be here for, oh, 750 hrs = 31 days
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: No it doesn't, although in theory you could ask a mod to do it.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: PS lets get moving, as we are all here.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: I've finalized and I'm at work. If my co-worker wasn't reading over my shoulder and cracking up I'd need to get back to coding.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Can we get on with this?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm not attacking you Turkey. You can always submit all holds. :)
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: If we all just want Centurian to win, maybe we should just let him. It seems to be a common theme in our ongoing negotiations.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm not going to attack Rait. Can we just end this already?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Dear Penthouse,

Solo had been teasing me for days, I was getting incredibly frustrated. Why should I marry Draw when I could have sultry Solo? But at a certain point I was starting to feel desperate...
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: The trouble with mutually assured destruction is that it isn't subgame optimal.
The threat of launching exists only to dissuade your enemy from firing. Once the birds are in the air, there's no reason to launch. Since the incentives associated with MAD collapse as soon as someone fires, there is an incentive to fire first.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: In other words, no, I don't want to give you Trieste.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: I should also report that this global chat experiment is proving to make this game very entertaining.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Whenever you are ready guys...

PS Sorry for spamming you defeated guys.
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Nothing like public humiliation
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: For whom?
14 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'll ready up once I hear back from Rait.
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Shall we carry on?
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm going to California at the end of next week. If we're not done by then, I'll either need a sub, or a pause.
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Or..... Draw.
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1912: Well whats the problem Rait?
18 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Any idea how long we'll be here?

21 Jul 09 UTC As fun as it would be to try to kill Rait while you throw him the game, I'll take my points.
21 Jul 09 UTC Granted, if that had been my plan, I would have just snatched Venice and Greece.
