10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:Libya and USA are now gone, it is actually a much smaller draw now
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Argentina]:I don't think Libya is actually eliminated until after the build phase. But he could CD if he does not submit a retreat order.

With that said...I think a draw is in order after Libya is eliminated. We will be down to 7 players at that point. It will be a while until others are eliminated and no one is going to get a SOLO. I say to Europe and Ghana...Vote Draw.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:i was never gonna go for solo :)
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Can we at least eliminate Quebec 1st?
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Argentina]:Why?
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:same question, why?
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Then we each get 53 points back and bc I've been working on him for years while brazil is finally gaining ground.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:13 points isn't really that big of a deal, is it?
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Argentina]:A 7-way draw yields 46 points each; a 6-way draw yields 53 point each. That is only a difference of 7 points! Quebec has 10 SCs, lets assume you and Brazil can take 2-4 SCs each year of play...spring, retreat, fall, retreat, build could take 15 days a turn year. Do you really want to play this one for 30 to 60 days more just to take out Quebec for 7 extra points. I guarantee that you will have your hands full fighting off the rest of us (at least India and Argentina) during that timeframe. I would wager that Brazil, Ghana, and Oz would join the party, and don’t forget Quebec.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Fine let's see ghana vote draw.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:After us and libya are gone I suppose
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:id like to get libya to get a draw :)
but he hasnt done it yet. :(
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:I think Libya should be left out of the draw. As much as I like U.S. him too. If you don't have any scs I don't want you in the draw.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Also I'm sorry if I seemed like an ass to anyone bc I said I wanted to solo. I was just making it clear to my allies what I intended to do.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Argentina]:I don't see how anyone would remain your ally once you declared that you were attempting a Solo. Thanks for voting draw.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:I would be surprised to see Libya back, he has been gone almost 5 days now and is on the verge of CD
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Well it's ppsc and some players like oz were fine with a survive so long as they got their bet back. The old Argentina wouldn't have had a problem lol. And np. I just want some points to play live games so I guess a draw is as much as I can hope for.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:At this point I'm happier than ever for a draw. Thanks for the inspiration Argentina ;)
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:agreed, I was once "all in" with Europe, but then he started to take my centers, so ...
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Yea. I know bad choice on my part. I felt bad.... Obviously to support you back into vlad. I just was stalled on all other fronts and was trying to keep expanding.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:well, at the expense of the one to whom you vowed complete loyalty, and then you stole Afgh ...
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:I'd have left it if you said you wanted it back and support to vlad. You told me to keep it. I'm sorry...
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:I had visions of solos dancing in my head. It happens to me sometimes...then I usually get stabbed...badly.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:India, wasn't just you. Anyway, I'm tire of this game by now. If we were to draw, I'd be very happy.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Brazil]:This reminds me of why I hate slow games.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:I like more than 1 day phases or live. So long as I have time and it's not like I wake up and have missed my nice 14 hour phase game I accidentally joined...
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:So, we're all online. How bout this: best joke wins. Ghana, for the love of all that is good, I beg you to draw. If you don't, though, you know where I stand.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Europe]:Now to wait for Libya to NMR. Good game everyone :) argentina curse you lol! You convincing everyone to draw really cramps my style :p
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Argentina]:Ready our orders so we can get on with this draw.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 2009: [India]:I will re-hit draw after USA and Libya disappear
