09 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: GameMaster: taylornottyler was banned: Multi/meta/no reply. 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!
18 Jan 18 UTC I'm really curious how Austria and Turkey were able to coordinate so many supports in 1901 and 1902. I've played hundreds of gunboat games on this site and I would never think to support Turkey to Bulgaria NC as Austria, nor would I ever make that move as Turkey, yet the move happened and was supported.
18 Jan 18 UTC Nice game czechveck. I knew building that fleet in 1905 was a mistake as soon as I entered the order but it was too tempting to go south.
18 Jan 18 UTC Thanks 2nd. Good game all
18 Jan 18 UTC Gg. Well, not a very good game given France NMR, but well don Germany.

The previous Turkey was banned for meta - see message at the top - I came in with 0 bet. No idea re how they coordinated
18 Jan 18 UTC Three players with a bet if 0. Two were likely our metagamer. This game will not make my highlight reel but points for persistence
18 Jan 18 UTC Aww my emoticon didn't post. ;)
18 Jan 18 UTC When I was an admin, I'd have canceled this game. Three replacements is three too many IMO.
18 Jan 18 UTC I really wish there was more that could be done to prevent metagaming.
14 Apr 18 UTC Moderator: (Claesar): A bit late to the party, but let it be clear that there was no metagaming in this game. There was never a reason to cancel this.
