09 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Likewise it'll take me about 7 hours before I can really dig in to press but good luck everyone and excited to start!
09 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good start for everybody!
25 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
25 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Everyone ok?
25 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1904: All good here
25 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1904: All is kicking here
26 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry folks - that was my fault. I was partying just a little too hard yesterday and lost track of the deadline. Won't happen again.
30 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Pausing for two days
01 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1905: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused
08 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Good game Russia and Turkey - thanks for playing.
23 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy said to me:

Ok, this was a very hard decision and I just made it this last minute, but I think I have a shot at the solo and am going to go for it. Sorry to break the alliance, it's been a real pleasure working with you and normally I'd be fine with a draw but the structure of the tournament really stresses solos and since someone already has one, one of us needs one to stay in the running. I think I can get it, but if I miss it, I would honestly rather be defeated and have someone have a chance of beating that other guy than have us draw.

Do you deny it Italy?
23 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: *grabs popcorn*
23 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I mean, aren't we all going for the solo? All the new information that press gives is that I'm not so great at this game and didn't attack you without warning. Or are you asking about the draw part? That's also true, I would normally be happy to have this end in a draw but I'd rather one of us four solo instead (obviously first vote is me, but any of us) so that there's a chance of competition in the tournament.
23 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm just happy to survive. If I get a chance at a solo then great, but I'm in this tournament for the opportunity to play good quality dip games, not necessarily for the win
24 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I actually posted it and asked the question because Germany didn't believe me. I guess he does now, but accepting your support into Tyrolia kind of shows how short term his thinking is.
26 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ugh screw you Italy
08 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Hi everyone. Paused for a day.
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Public announcement: I am throwing to an austrian solo
11 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I heartily endorse this announcement!
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Eh, if you want to pick him over me that's of course your prerogative. It isn't like he's less deserving of the solo than I am, although I'm not sure he's more deserving either.
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Any of the three of us (sorry Germany) can credibly play kingmaker, and I've already said I don't want this ending in a draw. I think you picked the wrong person though because I don't mind if the game ends in a solo over a draw and so even finding your threat credible I prefer it to backing off and drawing. Whereas claiming you'll throw to me might get Austria to help you fight for a draw but I don't think he can really interfere much with our fleet battle.
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Publicer announcement: I am throwing to an Italian solo
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I have no intention of doing anything to harm his ability to prosecute a war with you. Unlike the dodgy German who is his dying throws to you damaging his own potential standing in the tournament.
As to deserving - of course i am more deserving: I don't have to shut down my Nation to Coronavirus.
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Nah, losing is losing in this tourney, whether that's eliminated, survived, or second biggest on the board in a draw, they all score the same 0.
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: That is my point exactly. The German or England throwing to either of us is self-defeating and non-rational. If you can't win, the only rational next step to to ensure EVERYONE loses.
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: In that case, since England is non-rational, best to counter non-rationality with non-rationality
12 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: England is not serious - his Draw vote is up.
06 Apr 20 UTC So, how's everyone doing in the rest of the tourney? And in life? Staying healthy I hope.
06 Apr 20 UTC My Draw vote is in. Best you can do is stabilise the stalemate line Italy. We're done here I think.
07 Apr 20 UTC Well, I'd still rather let someone solo. I was going to propose we sit at the draw and then whichever of us is doing the best in the tournament later we let take the solo so they have a chance at winning
07 Apr 20 UTC No. You earn a solo and progress, or you don't. We shouldn't game the system for personal advantage that's effectively unearned. Where's the glory in that?
07 Apr 20 UTC I disagree but oh well, gg and congrats on the .1, austria
07 Apr 20 UTC gg lads
07 Apr 20 UTC Good game lads - well played forcing the draw.
