Re: The Mediterranean Axis

I'm with those who don't see it working. Turkey gets to Moscow and has nowhere to go but into Austria. Also, if successful, Italy is the only one with northern fleets and gets basically enough to solo if he isn't stabbed.

Re: Will GOT last season live up to the hype..

So much buildup, I'm concerned they try to resolve it too quickly because Martin is bored. There aren't many series this involved that resolve in an appropriate pace.

Then again, Martin is a master, so what do I know.

Game 9 is a draw:

Is there a spiffy leaderboard to go with that fantastic game results page?

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Yeah, attacking anyone you need to have on board for the draw is always a dangerous move. I'm not surprised at all this blew up in your face VI.

Re: How do can you defeat a Lepanto alliance as a Juggernaut alliance?

I"d also point out that the juggernaut didn't get anywhere. It was the wintergreen that broke the east, but then one member of the alliance got creamed. I find this not an uncommon outcome of a juggernaut. For my money, I almost never will tolerate Russia in the Black Sea for exactly this reason. Yo...

Re: New Rule Regarding Game Press

Uh huh. I'm just curious what it is that they said that offended you. Oh, just the use of the usual homophobic slurs. You know the one, and I won't repeat it. There wer some sexist ones as well.

Uh huh. I'm just curious what it is that they said that offended you. Kinda curious myself. I saw the game and know the abrasive player in question (who for the record was a ftf visitor for the tournament), but I wasn’t quite sure what the trigger comment was that over-stepped into racist/homophobi...

Re: New Rule Regarding Game Press

In my experience, Ogion tends to use a broader definition of terms like 'racism', 'sexism', 'homophobia' etc. than most people. If you mean I don't respond to demeaning slurs and stereotypes with a wink and a gigle, no, I don't. And what most people call racism or sexism seems to depend on whether ...

Oh, it absolutely does. In the tournament there were repeated and clear instances of slurs and the so forth and the mods basically shrugged and called it "buzzsaw diplomacy" some such lame excuse. I immediately surrendered out of their tournament and will never return under any circumstances. It is...
