06 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 2008: GameMaster: Jxck was banned: Severe cheating. 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!

20 Jan 19 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Good game, survivors! India, wish you'd attacked a bit more aggressively rather than support holding so much!
20 Jan 19 UTC [India]:Fa, I sacrificed a unit for a critical support cut to win the battle.of anartica for you..
20 Jan 19 UTC [Ghana]:Good game,
Sorry USA. I didn't want to fight you. But I couldn't feel safe next to you while you attacked me.

Well played.
21 Jan 19 UTC [India]:But Ghana, had you not taken over the old Ghana was just entering all hold, USA would have soloed
21 Jan 19 UTC [Europe]:ghana got replace twice The first one was banned for cheating, and I think he ate his other self in LIbya

I think its why I hate world so much, cuz so many NMRs if you end up nearone, you get a distinct advantage, and if not, well you simply cant grow faster than the ones who sit near the NMR
21 Jan 19 UTC [India]:well, BOTH WC and Quebec, NMR first turn, no wonder USA got such a great start.
21 Jan 19 UTC [Europe]:ah yes, forgot that one

This is why world is like a lottery ticket

And to be Europe, and get a cheater directly to your south, and someone to the other side (Russia) that seems to only focus on you, well it becomes a bit of an issue.

I think its why I just like the 7 nation games..
21 Jan 19 UTC [USA]:Yes USA is the weakest position other than Libya (and Europe).. I should never have had a chance, except a couple of NMRs early by Quebec and WC. This map is interesting but you can't take it too seriously. I had a chance to solo until my Asia armies got caught. If they hadn't then I had the easy solo. Antarctica too...I was one turn away! Great job by India, and Ghana recognizing in the Med and Spain before I could finish the job. FA did well also, stayed disciplined even when India was moving all around him...
21 Jan 19 UTC [India]:yes, I had to go into NZ and take it from Frozen in order to set up a protective naval shield on his east side, but he stayed calm and cool when i did it. Also, yes, made some good moves to remove USA armies from north-eastern Russia, had to get rid of every army before my lines got breached.
21 Jan 19 UTC [India]:i actually love this map, even though I know it's not balanced. it's because it's a map of the earth, the interesting geography areas, varied stalemate lines and convoys, yes, some starting positions suck, it's true, but you just have to deal with that. i have done well as USA, Europe once, when Russia was bad.
21 Jan 19 UTC [USA]:Oh I enjoy this map also, but much more so when I get Ghana, India, or Quebec. They seem to do the best, most often.
21 Jan 19 UTC [India]:i think the inequalities of the map actually make it more challenging to play. Perfectly balanced maps are the worst.
21 Jan 19 UTC [USA]:Indeed. Also the high chance of NMRs changing things where you didn't expect can cause additional challenges, and shoul be expected as part of the scenario.
