23 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2018: [India]:As Oz cannot build I am afraid I MUST go in... that capitalized indicates my regret and apology... sorry Oz
23 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2018: [Europe]:Somalia available for convoy if desirable.
26 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 2019: [India]:Hey guys, hope you all are there, sorry, been a busy day


@EUROPE
Arctic back to Barents with 2 supports? I think it's necessary now, and Barents to Stp. Irkutsk SH Yakutsk? Also, we should get Egypt out. Near East could give a really good stab, like I know someone wants me to (even though they're actively convoying to attack me)
27 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 2019: [Ghana]:Whoops I missed a turn. Mea culpa
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Near-East]:@ Europe: You mite want to move that fleet into Somalia.
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Europe]:True that.
28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [India]:Okay, okay, okay. I promise I will get better at this. My responses will be earlier in the phase change but the current way it is is really bad for me - I have more timing now than any other part of the day.
This is actually a really awful spot right now. Yaktusk is gone, which means that Godthab is gone and we need a new line. Please @EUROPE, move more units than that! I guess I wasn’t clear enough? Also, you need to either A) be more proactive defending the north like I was just saying or B) set up a stalemate line. However, there is some hope in that in our positions Barents will only fall if there’s a fleet in the North Coast of Yaktusk. That means the attack will come from Kam or Arctic. Irktusk SH Yaktusk again. Everything else, SM Korea-Yaktusk but Inner Mongolia SH Lanzhou. Can Moscow move to take East Siberia via Kazakhstan? (I don’t have the militaristic capability to do anything else, it’s yours in the coming months.) Can you finally move to Somalia from Red Sea?
@GHANA can you move to Madagascar? 
@EUROPE Red Sea to Somalia
@NEAR-EAST Arabian Sea needs to support hold NWI. Can you move Pakistan-WCH? We need units to defend our most challenging front and units from you two could really help.
@SOUTH-AFRICA Can you free up Namibia for a fleet build?
@BRAZIL don’t win through NMRs. Glad Ghana is back

28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [India]:When I am referring to more units in the second paragraph, I mean in the east
28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [India]:SM Korea-Vladivostok****
28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Brazil]:Honestly i was out drinking caipirinhas and missed all of that till after the phase

Not even joking
28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Near-East]:I will get on that!
28 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Ghana]:Ah this is a meme
29 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Europe]:Preference on my build?
30 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 2019: [India]:On the one hand, we need armies east and on the other we need fleets. Either way
30 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 2020: [India]:@NEAR-EAST Can you move to Western China?
01 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2020: [India]:Also, Bombay should SH BoB every turn
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Near-East]:oops...
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Near-East]:What should west china do?
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [South-Africa]:Ghana? Really ;-)
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [India]:Brazil, this game could be over and we all could collect our 28 coins in peace. You know you want it...

@NEAR-EAST Could you SH BoB and Lanzhou? If we hold Brazil here, we should be in good shape.

@EUROPE Can Austria-Hungary inevitably make its way to Madagascar? I think that might be good, or if we can coordinate Somalia-NwI with everything supporting to NwI. Don't love that idea but if we coordinate it far enough in advance.
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Near-East]::thumbs_up:
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:When I stabbed Argentina,

In a turn that is far past,

I could not then imagine,

How long this game would last.

My eyes did not then tell me

of the schemes I'd come to know,

nor could they plot my stabbings,

from that perch so long ago.

But now for each a caipirinha,

takes away my guilt,

and I cannot keep from smiling,

When I see the fleets I've built =)
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Near-East]:Nice poem.
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Brazil]:thank you thank you
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Quebec]:Clapclapclapclapclap!
02 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [Quebec]:T-3 y'all. The sparklers underneath the engines are lit!
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [India]:Thank you, Brazil. This game is nearing its completion
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2020: [India]:Near-East can you SH Lanzhou rather than tap it? Thanks
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [Near-East]:Oh fuck, whoops!
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [India]:@Brazil you should paint in all of the Americas
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [Europe]:RIP Northeast Atlantic 2004-2021
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [Europe]:wat do
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [India]:This game is over, I think. The line is not formed and as a result, I think we've about run out of options. If anyone sees anything else, then please let me know
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [South-Africa]:I see...a lot of green....and....hummm....well.....That was a fun game regardless. If nothing else the comments were entertaining! Cheers!
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [Brazil]:Caipirinhas for everyone!
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 2021: [Quebec]:I don't think I've ever had one. I'm gonna seek some out now I think!
07 Oct 18 UTC [Europe]:Sorry guys, unintentional NMR, was not a premature give up
07 Oct 18 UTC [Europe]:Wp, gg
07 Oct 18 UTC [Brazil]:I shall think fondly of this game whenever i sit down to cuchaca :)

Good game all
07 Oct 18 UTC [Quebec]:Haha. Well played, Brazil!
I hope my propaganda campaign was not too annoying. I wished everyone played strategically way earlier than they finally did... Maybe next time!
07 Oct 18 UTC [Near-East]:That was fun.
07 Oct 18 UTC [Near-East]:That wasn't sarcastic. I actually had fun.
07 Oct 18 UTC [South-Africa]:Good game - was fun1
07 Oct 18 UTC [India]:Well played Brazil. Thanks all for the fun game!
31 Oct 18 UTC [India]:I know that this game is almost a month old now so sorry for coming back, but a question for you, Brazil - how long did it take you to enter your moves?
01 Nov 18 UTC [Brazil]:Even at the end i could set a plausible set of orders in 15 minutes but i typically would then scheme and plot for a good hour and sometimes changed things around
01 Nov 18 UTC [Brazil]:Plus anytime one of you said anything i would have to reconsider my moves
01 Nov 18 UTC [Brazil]:Ive never actually played this map before and thought it was fun. For the record, most of my stabs were planned way in advance even though i know i tried to lie about them at the time. Was planning Canada since like the fourth turn of the game.
01 Nov 18 UTC [India]:I see. I've never been in a position to truly solo in this variant and I just was presented it. I thought I'd ask as this game was such an important part of my account at one point.
02 Nov 18 UTC [Brazil]:I am not an expert by any means. I think you have to play aggressively for a win and *not* for a draw, which means being unpredictable and taking a lot of calculated risk. It seemed like everyone else on the board played for a share in the hypothetical draw which created space for me to eke out a win with sheer aggression.

I also think by the time you joined the game the die was 60% cast because the map collectively underbuilt fleets.
