23 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1: Good luck all!
28 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2: hello,new rome, trying to make this game more fair
28 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2: Too late :(
30 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 3: Se should force Carthage to draw
30 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 3: We
01 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 3: what a shit this game
01 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 3: Yes it is always disappointing when players don't turn up
01 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 3: Yeah, Carthage, it's not right to not cancel though. It's entirely unfair, and I'll get a mod if I need to.
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: Why I'll draw if needs be but i don't believe the people who didn't play deserve their points and also my guess is you would do the same if you were in my shoes
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: My draw vote is cast
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: Besides there was only one inactive player
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: Egypt and you just gave up
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: It isn't my fault Greece you lacked the initiative to go after Rome infact it was you who convinced me to attack him
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: I'm saying its unfair against the rest of them, mostly. I wont complain for my own sake.
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: I'll take a draw. Egypt got whooped on his own merits. Its Persia I feel bad for, but he's only losing 11
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: Greece take rav tho
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: Actually I plan on taking the available SCS and at the end of this turn I'll draw
02 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 4: I'll take rav
04 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 4: Just out of interest could some one please explain why you all think this game should be cancelled as there was only one player not playing in the beginning and there was always at least 4 players who entered moves(apart from autumn 2).
05 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 4: Because a single player used it to take over the game.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 5: I guenuinley don't understand why this game isn't legit in your eyes...
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 5: You told us you would draw at the end of the turn.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 5: So draw plz
06 Nov 18 UTC Yeah, I'm not going to accept these results.
06 Nov 18 UTC He's going for a solo, and Imma report this game instead.
07 Nov 18 UTC I have lol Egypt hasnt
07 Nov 18 UTC I beg though someone look at this from my point of view: firstly why would I cancel when there was only one player not playing. I wreckon at least 80percent of games have an inactive player. I am also pretty sure if you were in my shoes you would do the same. My original plan in this game was to go for egypt, however Greece contacted me and told me would both be going for Rome. I did as he asked but he wimped out meaning I could take most of the available SCS in the med. Then Rome became active.
07 Nov 18 UTC Infact im not drawing this game. The reasons are not there. If the mods want to cancel it to satisfy Greece throwing a wobbly then so be it
07 Nov 18 UTC Just want to emphasize that I have played at least 5 games of this map in which a player has been inactive and not once has it been cancelled or has anyone even asked for it
07 Nov 18 UTC Greece do not deserve a draw. He wanted to attack me instead force Carthage to a draw, some seasons in the past
07 Nov 18 UTC i will survive!!
07 Nov 18 UTC hahaha very funny. Go, Rome!
07 Nov 18 UTC the only people i feel slightly sorry for are persia and egypt ( although egypt gave up and so my empathy for him is less) and rome knew the situation when he took over. I don't believe the game was damaged enough to cancel. And also greece annoys me so i would never give him anything.
08 Nov 18 UTC Congrats to Carthage
