16 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: I didn't read that.
16 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: I guess what I'm really saying here, is GET IN THE CAR, LOSER, WE'RE GOING SHOPPING! (Also that I love you all...seriously. BBFs forever.)
16 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Paused at 4 mins 59 seconds. That's smooth!
16 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Why is this game still paused?
16 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Everything's Russia's fault. :P
16 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Wow. That was a beautiful rant. Why is everyone not tripping over that ? Hahaha
21 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Farewell folks. I'll see you in two weeks.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Time for Russia to make his solo play.
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: It's either that or waste 12 points on the off chance that he might have another 12 points handed to him so easily as this game later on.
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Haha. I don’t play just for points you know :) Let this game stand as a testament to my unwavering loyalty to my allies who have worked well with me - I shall stand by them steadfastly to the very end
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'd forgotten how lucrative this pot is.
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Haha. I meant the tournament points - not the webDip bounty :)
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: That's not what you told me. You said you don't want a target on your back later, so you are giving up a solo and a huge advantage in the tournament in order to have friends later on.

27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: (goldfinger0303): Hi all,

As some as you may know, bo will not be returning for a second game and will be leaving the Leagues. This will probably cause a slight delay in the start of Game 2. League policy is to have the best player from the A Leagues join and replace the position. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Hey everyone. I am going to be traveling to visit friends this weekend. I am driving today and coming back Sunday. I expect to have internet access, but I also expect to be kind of busy, so while I'll be able to send press, it might be short. I don't think I need a pause unless the game goes an unexpected direction.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Bo is leaving?? Nooooooooo - Why???
27 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Short answer. You. Longer answer. Yooooooooouuuuuu
27 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ok, that was pretty funny.
27 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm dropping out for two reasons - first of all, and most relevantly, I find the strategy of forgoing a solo and a huge early advantage in favor of not getting ganged up on later repulsive and I hope that in future years, the organizers of this tournament will realize that metagaming is against the rules for a reason. Until then, I won't make the mistake of signing up for this again. Secondly, my friends and I are organizing a road trip at the beginning of May and I have a job in either Glacier National Park in Montana or the backwoods in Minnesota (not sure which station I am at yet) at the end of May that will probably prevent me from accessing the internet for days, if not weeks, at a time, so I probably can't finish anyway. I shouldn't have signed up but I was only in the prospective stages for that job at that point in time, so I didn't really know it would come down to that.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (goldfinger0303): TL;DR - he didn't read the rules of the Leagues and was surprised.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry to ask now, but could I get a short pause? Tonight until Sunday evening?
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (goldfinger0303): Per rules they must, so I'll speed it along.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Anyone who looks at my record will realise that I have never 'given up' a solo in my life. I have always gone for a solo whenever I can - and so have many of the other players here.
However, this tournament is different and was designed differently. If I solo now, I am guaranteed 100% immediate elimination in game 2 and game 3. If someone soloes in game 3,4 - that person will probably win. I want to be in a position to not just be that person, but also have a major influence over things to determine who wins, loses or draws. I can't do that if I am eliminated in 1903 in game 2 and 3. None of the other leagues have been won on 12 points - this might be a stupid strategy, but I don't think it is unethical at all.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: ..but now we'll all just gang up on "replacement Bo_Sox".

Yeah you heard me right, we're waiting for you!! Scab! Scab!! Scab!!!
01 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey guys, I am back home. I am casting my vote to unpause, but I assume we won't actually unpause until tomorrow since not everyone will check in tonight.
02 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (goldfinger0303): If this isn't unpaused in 24 hours I'll unpause it. I just don't want to spring it surprisingly on anyone.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: There doesn't seem to be much diplomacy happening here right now.
Requesting all countries to ready up quickly if possible unless you actually need time for negotiation.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (goldfinger0303): Don't worry Sh@dow, I'm on top of it. I just don't think everyone has noticed that the game is back on. *cough* obi *cough*
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: We shouldn't talk during a pause, should we? And unless there is an offer of Russian forces withdrawing to the status quo ante bellum, then there probably isn't a lot else to be said ;)
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: The game isn't on pause Italy :)
And unfortunately, it appears Europe's great powers have already come a decision on status quo post bellum :)
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey, I was in bed when it unpaused (which was like 10 hours ago, but the panel says only 4 hours of the phase have elapsed)

So, we have agreed that Italy shall rule, in a new Roman empire? Cool. If you could commence your withdrawal to St Petersburg (always a better capital for Russia), that'd be grand
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm happy to make it grand for you - I shall be withdrawing to STP as requested.
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Okay, Italy, and.......NOW!

Haha, you're in for it now, suckers...Pete U and I have you all JUST where we want you, yes, this was ALL part of our super-secret plan for domination!

Plan Alpha Omega Shakespeare Charlie Delta is A GO!!!

:p
07 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: That's the teleporter, right?
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game Pete/ObiWan, you put up a hell of a fight!
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm channeling Arnie now
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ok time to solo :P
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: He's fallen perfectly into our trap, LET'S GET HIM ENGLAND!
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Russia's in Spain right now. Spain. Russia. What?
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Russia's in Spain and has less than 23 centres!!!!!
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Haha. Its been a fun game :)

Turkey I am disappointed to see a green Apulia.
Italy congrats on that
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well played all.
Respect F,I for fighting to the end.
Looking forward to the next game :)
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Babuskha's are going to be all the rage down at Barceloneta Beach this summer.
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Three way draw in 1908... how dull.
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Bo's back!!
11 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I find ghosting more fun than playing.
11 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Maybe that's because ghosts are the worst and you are also the worst?

(So nice that you're not playing anymore. Childish insults are way more fun.)
11 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: The leagues is the worst.
11 Mar 15 UTC Getting eliminated so easily though, Bo - nothing can be worse than that :)
