World Diplomacy IX, Survivors-Win Scoring
Game drawn
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [India]:what surprises me is that he was a very engaged ally ... if he wasn't, i'd have changed sides long ago.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]:Asked you to many times my almost friend.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]:To all- This game has been greatly compromised, first by Russia, then by multiple missed turns, now by Pac-Russia. I would make this proposal- A 4-way draw. India deserves better than a defeat. He has fought honest and well. Western Canada still dies however.
Thoughts?
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]:{FYI- in the game Justamaria played 3 sides in, I won in a solo. lol!}
03 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [India]:well, i can't deny that i'd like this solution ... not because i urgently want to survive, but also because the game is flawed - which is a pity after such a long time ...
01 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2019: [India]:so hit the draw button please :)
it gives me a draw record in my statistics, and for you it would be almost the same result – you won't gain much more points if you take me out of the game.
01 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2019: [Ghana]:India- I don't play for points, I do play for allies. My allies have made their decisions, and I am (very clearly) loyal. I wish you had taken those offers I had made so long, long ago. You are loyal too, and you play well. If it helps, I hold you in high respect.
02 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [India]:so my error was to be loyal too, but chose the wrong ally and didn't switch (then he turned out to be a multi etc. etc.)
anyway, i bear no grudge – it was a last attempt to survive this game, but as your allies don't wish that to happen, i'm doomed.
02 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Ghana]:I would try every trick too. Mark of a good player.

But he was a BAD multi. Wonder how he got figured out . . . .
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Kenya]:We can draw if that's what everyone wants.
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Ghana]:I would draw a 4-way now or a 3-way later. Personally I like the alliance winning, but I also recognize that India was honest and a good player. I also respect that he continues to fight when almost all other players seem to quit (a pet peave!).

So my vote would be a 4-way. Argentina?
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Kenya]:I could go either way.
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Europe]:Congrats Ghana
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2020: [Ghana]:Thank you Europe, but it was a team game. :)
04 Mar 12 UTC [Europe]:So you really want to draw, one SC before you win solo?
04 Mar 12 UTC [Argentina]:About the draw, India has been a noble foe, so as much as I would love to see a three way if everyone else thinks he deserves a piece of the pie than so be it I would agree.
04 Mar 12 UTC [Ghana]:Draw order is in.

Europe- my joy is the intellectual and teamwork part of this game. I normally take solos as a defeat- they mean I was unable to forge a good team.

Teammates- you were loyal and I greatly, greatly enjoyed spending the last half year with you (incredible, yes?).

India- great foe. You deserved better. Perhaps we can meet again, under better circumstances?
05 Mar 12 UTC [India]:thanks for the result - it was a great game. i had a good alliance with PR (i remember plotting moves on christmas eve with him ...) and i was most surprised that he was banned. also i remember russia being part of the alliance, who's father in law got seriously ill, so he had to quit the game. so after all, i'm glad i survived - or survive thanks to your mercy :)

see you in another game. i'm playing on this server and on vdiplomacy.net (for the more exotic variants).
05 Mar 12 UTC [Ghana]:This and vdiplomacy.com (also exotic variants)
06 Mar 12 UTC [Kenya]:Aren't vdiplomacy.com and vdiplomacy.net the same thing? My account seems to exist on both of them.

Anyways, I would like to thank Ghana and Argentina for being completely faithful allies, and India for being a challenging enemy. This was one of the best games I've participated in for a while, and I've learned a lot about this variant and Diplomacy in general. And now, I shall press the draw button....
