Game drawn
08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: Germany: as far as im aware if you draw you alll get the same DPs regardless of your amounts of SCs correct me if im wrong
08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: we would all get 17Dps
08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: I voted draw
08 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1912: me and France are stalemated (yes im aware of munich) as is the russias northern fronts
08 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1912: VIE or TRI. And then which will you protect? Will Russia betray you?
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Even if russia takes vie i wouldn't lose a unit the only way this game will end if Russia betrays me or you and germany split up
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: I know that you two are going to move to bohemia but I'm not sure if that would actually be of benefit as russia could just support hold it
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: That doesn't seem like the best option to me
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: it is a stalemate i am getting bored of this game you were in this position 4 or so moves away this is a repeat
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: and it is clear there are going to be no stabs
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Sorry you are getting bored - but this is not a repeat of the same position (there are differences)
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: look at spring 1910
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: *autumn
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: Exactly and there is a difference.

Not saying that this won't end with a stalemate position but it hasn't yet.

You could always sit back and let us win.
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: can we say you have 3 goes to hold one of my SCs for 2 goes if you do we carry on if not we draw
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1912: this is definitely a stale mate now
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: Is it?
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: it was until russia AFK if he doesn't move it is game over
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: if russia doesn't enter his moves this go i will concede or if you would rather do it honourably we can draw because if he doesn't play it is 2 vs 1 so I'm dead
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: i just looked at previous games played on this varient and you do realise this game has gone on for over double the length of pretty much all of them
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: most of them end in 1905
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: It has been a long one hasn't it. I have never had one that went on this long before
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: yes because it was a stalemate for ages
12 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1914: come on russia
13 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: yes russia is back
13 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: please russia france please do the honourable thing
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: france can we at least pause it until a new russia comes
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: but Russia is back
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: is he he hasn't entered any moves
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: well he popped back in over the last couple of days so pausing the game would leave it hanging. the only way to get a replacement would be to NMR him and get the game to boot him.
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: whats nmr
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: No Moves Recorded
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: after two consecutive phases with NMR the player is removed from the game. At that point they can be replaced. Russia prevented that from happening by coming back in for a phase or two.

Not sure but I think that the pause would just mean that no NMR would be recorded thus keeping Russia in the game.
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: i will take warsaw and then we can draw... agreed?
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: yes agreed
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: though i see france isn't keeping to that
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: Um - excuse me but how so?
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: Even though Russia has been gone on a few phases I didn't even attempt to move on Ionian. All i have done is get into support for Germany and set a Draw vote last phase.
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: the move to tyrolia because now you are in a position to take venice
14 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: if that move isn't to take ven then thanks
15 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: so this should be the last of set of moves
15 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1915: Should be...
16 Mar 17 UTC going solo i take it
16 Mar 17 UTC germay could you vote draw now
16 Mar 17 UTC gg although it was a long one
16 Mar 17 UTC gg
16 Mar 17 UTC gg
16 Mar 17 UTC gg guys - glad it ended with a draw really - that would've gone on until the game ran out with no Russia.

I wasn't sure whether Germany would go for the draw but wanted to keep my options open sorry. But you survived Italy and I salute your resolve - if Russia hadn't have gone then who knows.

And well done Germany - a reliable Franco-German Alliance. Glad I was part of one.
