Game drawn
09 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Libya]:In Antarctica, I guess that is SE Indian ending up in Casey. Vostok stays where it is and hold Southern Indian Ocean.

And I think if Ghana maneuvers another fleet into the right position in Mozambique Channel to help hold NW Indian, we can lock down access to Africa as well. I'm seeing a safe way to accomplish that, so that's about 7 years of work to end up in a stalemate anyways.
Arabian Sea could get knocked out of position, retreating to Somalia where it can permanently guard Red Sea. SW Indian and Mozambique Channel can lock down NW Indian. Vostok can protect Southern Indian. Yeah - stalemate set there, even with Europe making the risky move of letting USA crawl fleets towards Arabia.

But do you know where there are not stalemate lines? For a USA invasion of Brazil or Europe. Maybe you should be thinking about that, because when we lock things down, where will he turn?
09 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Europe]:Libya you're so annoying
10 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Libya]:@Europe - ugh, sorry to make you read ;)
10 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]:"Where will he turn?" is more like "where is he turning?"
Europe is about to get slammed by USA.
10 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Libya]:@Ghana - probably. USA got nervous when it appeared Europe was going to preemptively attack and ruin his big strike that he wanted to delay for another year or two. While Europe chose to back off, USA may decide that's it's time to do it anyways.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [India]:Europe though your course of action is a risky one I do admire it. There are people who are loyal allies and keep their word, they don't change sizes or stab and attack only if they had been attacked by a former ally. You are that kind of guy, I hope when the stab comes won't be too late for retaliation.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [USA]:@Europe: Sorry for getting close to you. I wasn't sure, what you had in your mind.
I won't come closer.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [Europe]:*you will move back to where those fleets were before
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [USA]:If you feel better then
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [Libya]:@Ghana - since I could not hold Len even if I got it, I think it's time to just lock down the stalemate line there, sit back and watch what USA does to Europe and Brazil knowing he can progress no further. If Europe is willing to risk giving up Bombay and more to USA, we'll have time to set up the proper stalemate line to secure Africa as well, but no need to do that yet.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [South-Africa]:Dangnabbit..no idea why the computer deleted Tasman Sea over South Australia -- both adjacent to a dot...must prioritize land over sea in close calls. Unfortunately, means I'm dad this year, rather than next.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [South-Africa]:dad=dead, already a dad.
11 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2016: [Europe]:USA, I will be moving to Godthab I expect to see the fleets move to the west (eventually the east of the map?) Either way get them near the pacific.
11 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Brazil]:@US - Please consider convoying Len to Vos this phase. Don't tell me if you plan to do it. I think it's a tight window but could pay off.
11 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Ghana]:@Libya
I can move Maw to Vos, so we don't have to worry about that. You can hold Norwegian Dependency w/ Nov & Syo. You hold Ddu w/ Cas. I hold San w/ SEA. Nothing gets through and we tie for Vos if US convoys. Did I miss anything?
11 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Ghana]:My fleet in Cam will make it's way to Mch.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:@Ghana - better if I just put the Southern Indian fleet back in Vos and you use Maw to hold Norwegian Dependency - there are holes in the plan you propose. Just hold Norwegian Dependency with Maw. Please confirm so we don't bounce.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:Or better, just support Southern Indian moving to Vos, hold San with SE Atl and I'll hold Norwegian Dependency with Nov and Syo. We can lock in that stalemate line.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:And good call on the Cam fleet.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Ghana]:@Libya
Confirmed. Supporting SIO to Vos
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:Great - thanks. We're going to lock down our territory. We won't advance, but we'll be in the final draw for sure.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [South-Africa]:Never what one hopes for, but a satisfying outcome for picking up a weak position late -- outlasted the two that stabbed me, and played a minor role in the big play. Looks like justice for the players when you look at the list -- all the 0's came and went and the winners were from the original set.
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:USA has made bigger the difference with Europe, now has 28 SCs and Europe still has 20, more than 60% of the target is achieved. Europe if you want to see a draw it is time to switch sides!
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [South-Africa]:@India: Libya worked the stalemate line well...the last bit of drama will be whether its a 5 way and they all smile at one another and call it a day, or whether USA goes for gold
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [India]:A stalemate line to block an attack on them, what if USA decides to take on Europe or Brazil?
12 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Libya]:@Ghana - we're very close to secure now, and there is nothing to stop us from getting there.
@Brazil/Europe - you are not secure, but could get there if you take USA seriously. I'm just turtling up for the final draw I expect once South Africa is eliminated, but you might want to prepare for USA if he has other plans. Otherwise, I expect we all draw after one more year. Brazil in particular has a ton of vulnerabilities to USA.
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Brazil]:If USA attacks me I will be forced to give up the stalemate in the Atlantic. He might end up with half of my SCs if he's lucky, and it will add 7 or more years to the game. Priorities, I guess.
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:@Brazil - since I have no interest in seeing USA win, you can count on my cooperation to fend him off.
12 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Ghana]:@Brazil
I'm backing off of pushing the Atlantic. I'm ready for a draw.
13 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:@Ghana - to state the obvious - a whole bunch of holds here and S.Afr. advances to MCh to lock down our stalemate lines. Which should be overkill, since I don't see why Europe would risk a USA solo just to take Saudi Arabia, and only Saudi Arabia off of me.
13 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:support holds
13 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Libya]:Didn't actually expect to take the Med there as that had been a defensive move for years, but USA no-showed. I won't be surprised when I'm punted right back out.
13 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 2017: [Europe]:Can't even say the right country dang
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Libya]:Damn - being sick sucks - my head is muddled.
13 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Libya]:Sorry Europe
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [South-Africa]:Bumping SEI if that does anything in your planning folks.
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Libya]:Post-builds, I'm expecting a draw. If not, USA has other plans...
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Brazil]:RIP South Africa. Thanks for sticking around.
14 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [South-Africa]:Thanks for the kind words Brazil.
15 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Libya]:Thanks SA - we tried, but it didn't work out.
15 Dec 17 UTC [USA]:As most of my SCs became US because of players who left this game, i think it‘s ok to propose a draw now.
15 Dec 17 UTC [USA]:@SA: thanks for Staying in the game, although you are part of the loot now
15 Dec 17 UTC [Libya]:Thanks USA. I'd be shocked if Ghana doesn't put in a draw vote when he checks in next.
15 Dec 17 UTC [South-Africa]:Well played folks.
16 Dec 17 UTC [Ghana]:Good game everyone!
16 Dec 17 UTC [Libya]:Good game all - excellent partnership Ghana - really enjoyed working with you.
18 Dec 17 UTC [Europe]:Good game USA and Brazil
18 Dec 17 UTC [Libya]:Well played Europe, even if you betrayed me.
18 Dec 17 UTC [Brazil]:Lol. I learned a lot from this game guys. Good game.
18 Dec 17 UTC [Europe]:Good game USA and Brazil
