27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well I guess the Moderators can sort it out
you were given plenty of opportunities to withdraw completely and unreservedly
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: as were you to accept withdrawal with mild reservations
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: There is no point continuing this discussion in this forum,
I have just got the email address for the Moderators
& will make my complaint to them
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: My apologies to the other players
I have changed my draw vote to a pause vote
and will email the Moderators asap
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Roger that.
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: email sent.
we could have avoided this if you had made the two unreserved withdawals
the almighty Moderators are busy enough
accusing a player of being a dumb puppet or another of being a puppet master
is one thing, even making offensive & insulting remarks occurs and can be part
of "psyching out" other players, but trust me,
making any allegation of cheating, direct or indirect, outright or implied,
is an extremely serious thing to do & you can not just shrug that off when you realise
you have done so and are most probably wrong.
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: I intend to ignore the bickering that belongs on the boards and not in game, and go on enjoying an otherwise fine game. Regardless of who said what in here, allegations, judgement and consequences are in the hands of the moderators.
27 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1905: it has been a good game yeah
07 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1909: a game still going strong in 1909!
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Go Russia! :)
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: at least Russia's German ally can attack competently
you made a mistake by forcing Italian fleet Albania to be disbanded in an Autumn move
if you had waited and done it in a Spring move then in the Autumn move
you would have a temporary 3 fleets against 2 fleet advantage & taken the Ionian sea.

Russia, Germany & Austria have 21 units in the field,
Italy and France have eleven
there is a ten unit advantage, the result is inevitable
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: You are hardly in a position to talk about competency. I know you didn't get as many points as you got my blindly defending another player and refusing to take easy builds when they are offered like they are now.
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: by not my*
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: easy builds being offer'd to me, first I have heard about it.
fact one your fleet Albania was forced to be disbanded
fact two, twice in spring moves you could have forced the disbanding of the Italian
fleet Albania and had the advantage in the Autumn move & gained the Ionian sea

fact Italy with 4 units & one fleet from me has stood off eleven units,
( 7 Austrian & 4 Russian, now only ten because you lost your fleet ).

Italy, a beginner has delayed you at odds of two to one against

Germany would appear to be the more motivated / competent ally for Russia
he hasn't missed a step & it's a German army in Burgundy
& Germany only had 2 units at one point
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Fact 1 - Italy is being given moves by you and, as such, the beginner argument isn't applicable, because he has an experienced player helping him.
Fact 2 - As an experienced player, you know very well what stalemate lines are in this game and what is going on in the south is just that.
Fact 3 - The 'easy builds' are obviously Rome and Naples and you know it.
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Look you are only bogged down in the south because you stuffed up repeatedly.
Forcing the disbanding of Italian fleet Albania in an Autumn move and not a Spring
move is just one example, and a "beginner" level mistake.

I am also eagerly waiting for this game to end.
my "enjoyment" was "diminished" by your actions
and any further discussion of that matter is limited.
