28 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1999: gl hf
19 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2007: And now, we have four.
19 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2007: I mean. Technically Cali & Tex are still in this
19 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: True but barring a Jannisary strategy for either player, the last turn pretty much rendered us four effective powers.
19 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Oh look, Texas is on the run. Would be a real shame if that army just kept cause trouble in your back end Quebec
19 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2008: Oh he will that unit has gone rogue..Command and control in Dallas no control.
24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2010: GameMaster: Minhoto was banned: Multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2010: Haha, Manitoba and Monatana look a bit similar if you're not paying enough attention!
25 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2010: OMG......what a time to lose Peru!
28 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2011: Well played Texas!
28 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 2011: Thank you..This should be an interesting finish without peru.
28 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2012: Nothing interesting about it.....can't stalemate in the Pacific in time without Peru. Its a Q win.
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2015: I'm ready to throw in the towel. With Peru around the game could at least been brought to a stalemate. Without Peru, its just dragging on the inevitable.
29 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2015: It's 34 depots to win, right? If so it won't happen this year, but it could happen next.
30 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2017: You like stretching this out? Could have closed that season!
30 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2017: I predicted wrong in Tennessee and it effected my strategy. Sorry.
30 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 2017: No worries.....teasing is all I have left to heal my bruised ego! Hate pulling a loss out of a solid, earned draw.
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2017: In all fairness, if Peru wouldn't have been banned, it would have been at least a draw.
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2017: I don't think that is certain. The moment I finished with the rogue Texas unit I would have broken through LA. It became much easier, but a stalemate was never a guarantee
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2017: It was....there were sufficient Peruvian fleets to reach a Pacific bottleneck. You would have made progress by land in the middle, but with both oceans stuck, you could not have taken the interior coasts backed by fleets.
01 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2017: In any case, congratulations on the win.
01 Oct 14 UTC I disagree since I would have been able to move down the West Coast with the fleet in San Fransisco to Los Angeles, which would have allowed me to gradually take at least the North Pacific and possibly Baja. Additionally, the breakthrough in Chesapeake may have still been possible. I mean you could be right, I just don't think it's as conclusive (especially when we consider that the play style of another, non cheating Peru would have likely been different enough that the shape of the game would have been different).
01 Oct 14 UTC Regardless thanks for the game guys and it is a shame we couldn't have found out with an actual Peru.
01 Oct 14 UTC I've always wondered how when cheating is uncovered, only one account gets banned....how could he be cheating alone in a game? In any case, well played.
