The time until the next phase has been extended from <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1305924753" unixtimefrom="1305924586">2 minutes, 47 seconds</span> to <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1306010986" unixtimefrom="1305924586">1 days</span> (one full phase) so you can find a new player to take his place if you want to.
Make sure to finalize your orders if you don't want
to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily.
20 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Lame.

I hate cheaters.
21 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Me too.
21 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Who was banned? D:
21 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh, France..
21 May 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Yes, the old France. Perhaps he was the one mixed up with the maid at the hotel in New York. Viva la new France!
22 May 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Sorry for the missed turn, all! I was travelling for my brother in law's graduation.
24 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: My turn to miss a turn. Sorry all.
26 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: France refuses to join west in holding off juggernaut, attacks fellow westerners instead. Other three western powers retailiate against France. Juggernaut, happy to see an empty frontier, attacks other three western powers. Russia and Turkey race to 14 centers. Russia gets out ahead of / stabs Turkey to get #18.

Did I miss any of the rest of the game?
26 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sometimes it's nice to be wrong.
26 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: What game are you watching, exactly?
26 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I sent that before the moves were in. As I said, it's nice to be wrong.
28 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: It's thoughtful of you to try to prove me right, Russia, but there was no need to give up a perfectly good attack on Turkey to do it.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Greetings all, there's a new Turkey.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Welcome, new Turkey.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Come on, new Turkey, beat new France!
04 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I officially declare my new capital to be Carthage!
06 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Farewell, cruel world! Good luck, England!
06 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: England doesn't need any damn luck!
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Time for the draw?
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Well I mean I could just throw all my centres to Turkey
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Yes, looks like a draw. Russia, you giving me all your centers won't change much... from 4 to a 3-way draw.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: But you'd have enough centres to beat everyone else...
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Not really. There are stalemate lines, doesn't matter how many centers you have. They'll have to make huge mistakes to let me reach 18 centers. France probably has more chances, if he can take all of England's centers.
09 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: England and I have the angle to grind Russia away, assuming we continue to cooperate. Turkey is massed on my border that we'll have a stalemate unless he jumps on those Russian centers, even then we'll have a stalemate unless he screws up. I have little opportunity to stab England without losing my ability to stalemate Turkey. England has more of an opportunity to stab me, but then he opens up the window of opportunity for Turkey to gain ground.
10 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Hmm. How about I throw my centres to France instead? :D
10 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Russia: sounds like a plan!
10 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: hahaha
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: noooo my SCs
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I just had to issue 3 destroy orders in a build phase in one of my other games. Things there were going well, and then two others, imporbably I thought, decided to cooperate. A year later, 3 destroys. Very painful.
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: God stop working together and include me in the draw NOOOO UGH NOT ANOTHER DEFEAT
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm sorry Russia, but you are a very difficult ally to have. No communication and coordination, plus bad moves. I gave you Vienna and you retreated, leaving War and Mos to fall.

If you can't hold the line I'll take over.
11 Jun 11 UTC Admittedly I made bad decisions towards the end there, but I'd point out I only had to move back away from the stalemate line because it looked like you were trying to stab me D:

This has been a really bad game. The first France was banned and a second one took over, then Turkey CDed which essentially doomed me, because it ruined the very powerful alliance - mine and his - which was dominating the game. CDs always throw off the game a bit, and it's especially egregious when it's a dominating power who fails.
12 Jun 11 UTC Russia - that's a good point. I dislike NMRs, and the fact that you had a banned player in this game is not a great sign. When I joined I was shaking in my boots at the juggernaut on the board, but caught a huge break when Turkey #1 left. In retrospect, that's what allowed me to operate as I did with Germany + keep England in the coalition, using the juggernaut as the boogeyman.

Given these fatal flaws, I'll vote for the draw now too. I've been campaigning with England to get it down to 3 ways since we had the angle. Not sure if he'll be on board with the vote. We'll see.
12 Jun 11 UTC Thank you.
