07 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 916: [Egypt]:Hey y'all, New-Guy-Egypt here. I'm ok either way - just let me know if you want to Draw or if I should actually play.
07 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [Russia]:I want to draw.
08 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [France]:Most of us are waiting for the draw.
09 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [Russia]:India, you really get satisfaction from gaining a free territory every 3 days?
09 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [India]:I get satisfaction from the progress, even if it is slow. When there is a clear stalemate, I'm happy to draw then - I just haven't seen that yet.
09 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [Russia]:Hard to describe something as progress if there is no resistance.
09 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [Russia]:Its like playing chess with the other side not moving
10 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 916: [India]:Then move and defend please?
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [Russia]:Danggg India you are crushing us. You're one of the best players ive ever seen
18 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [India]:Are you mocking me Russia. ;)
19 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [Egypt]:new player here for egypt.
19 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [India]:Our third Egypt I think, or fourth - I've lost count.
19 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [Russia]:everyone else has quit because you wont draw
20 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [India]:There are others besides me Russia - not sure why you think I'm a lone hold out or why you feel you get to dictate when a game should be a draw. I like to draw when natural stalemates have been reached, or when all players otherwise agree to end the game. I don't see either of those conditions yet.
20 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 918: [Egypt]:I just voted to draw. not because I think I should have any opinion on it but so that I wont stop it if you all want it.
22 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 918: [Egypt]:anyone care to ally with me rather than destroy me?
23 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 918: [Russia]:Just let India take all your supply centers. It really makes him feel good.
23 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 918: [India]:Russia is confused, thinks this is a pacifist game, that he won when he got to 30 SCs and we should be happy with a draw with him walking away with the most points.
27 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 919: [Turan]:I will now bid adieu. It was fun while it las.............well honestly, it was fun while all were actively participating. Leave a memorial to Turan please!
27 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 919: [Denmark]:You honour this map damn it! It is the last one you will see. If I had only known I would have started 20 maps!
27 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 919: [India]:Turan - you put up a fine fight, and I honor you for that. Well done sir.
By the way, we're in the final four - only four games left of the Known World 901 variant, and we're one of them:
http://webdiplomacy.net/gamelistings.php?gamelistType=Active&page=1#top
No way we outlast the one on the 10 day phases, but we might beat out one or both of the other two. Apparently Turan is faring better in those other two.
02 May 17 UTC Autumn, 919: [Russia]:Hi I am the replacement player for Russia. Looking forward to finishing the game with all of you. Message me if you want to talk diplomacy.
02 May 17 UTC Autumn, 919: [France]:Oy - Seems some of us have given up - including prior Russia from strongest position. OTOH - India would love to speak with you.
02 May 17 UTC Autumn, 919: [Russia]:I am reading previous messages on the global message board. I see that people are voicing a game draw. Does everyone want to play this game out?
02 May 17 UTC Autumn, 919: [India]:Old Russia was pushing for a draw, but I didn't see a reason for it unless we hit a clear stalemate.
06 May 17 UTC Spring, 921: [Egypt]:we need to draw now before I am wiped out
13 May 17 UTC Spring, 922: [Russia]:Draw when Egypt is gone?
13 May 17 UTC Spring, 922: [Egypt]:no silly, draw before ! ! !
13 May 17 UTC Spring, 922: [India]:Got it, draw when Egypt is done. Thanks for clarifying Egypt.
16 May 17 UTC Autumn, 922: [Egypt]:last chance to let me live.
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [Russia]:Anyone want to draw
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [India]:Eventually, yes. Did you know this is one of only three remaining Known World games still active on the site. And one of the others is on a 10 day cycle.
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [Russia]:No i didn't know that. That's pretty cool. Why are they getting rid of the map?
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [Egypt]:because America rarely wins.
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [Russia]:You can't play as America in this game mode? 0_0
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [Egypt]:well no wonder they are getting rid of it then !!!
26 May 17 UTC Spring, 924: [India]:The map is buggy. Try clicking on the "Orders" link at the bottom of the page - that's just one of the bugs. There may be others. This map was intended to replace the World Diplomacy map, but when they found bugs in this one, they decided to drop this map and keep World Diplomacy for now. If you like this one, you can still play it on the http://vdiplomacy.net/ sister site, which has many more variations, although a smaller community. It is kind of fun being one of the last ones still playing this map on this site.
31 May 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [Russia]:I can't wait for this draw to commence.
31 May 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [India]:What's your rush?
31 May 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [Russia]:I don't want to be eliminated from the game. I need points really badly.
01 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [France]:Hello Russia - I'm giving territory to Sri so he can win before India. May be worth considering.
01 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [India]:I'm not winning. I'm drawing with Sri. I've even told him I'll draw as soon as he gives the word.
01 Jun 17 UTC Autumn, 924: [France]:Well there you go!
01 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 925: [Srivijaya]:I'm playing at least until France is gone, and then going to see how things are afterwards.
02 Jun 17 UTC Spring, 925: [Russia]:You guys are all awesome. Please let me live lol
14 Jun 17 UTC [Russia]:Last chance for a draw. Either everyone can win with a draw or one of you two get a solo win.
14 Jun 17 UTC [Srivijaya]:Yeah, I think it's time for a draw. Good Game everyone.
14 Jun 17 UTC [India]:I agree - I'll put in my draw vote
14 Jun 17 UTC [India]:Good game all - it was fun figuring out moves to advance slowly each turn.
14 Jun 17 UTC [Russia]:Good game
