How could you forget, there was only five of us? I couldn’t keep track of the revolving door of GL substitutions, but very nice of you to let every man, woman, and dog in the region get to each enjoy a couple rounds of tournament play. ;)
Unfortunately one of our team members had a rather serious real life emergency and I was at that point the designated sub and had 2 family members dealing with severe medical complications so I was not able to sub in at that point despite being the designated sub. We of course appreciate goldfinger being understanding and I'm glad the topic is entertaining!

Yeah, I really wish I would have been able to finish the Public Press game. I'm glad the Public Press game got a lot of attention though, as it's a variant I'm rather fond of. Overall, this tournament has been the highlight of my Diplomacy career thus far, and I'm glad I was a part of it.

Congrats to Cascadia for the win!

I didn’t even remember this was an actual thing. What’d we get?

It was never actually announced, but as a site policy all tournaments have a point prize these days.

Even lazy-ass captains that didn’t even play get 1,000 points?!

Much thanks to goldfinger for his time and efforts running this thing, I attempted to express that sentiment multiple times in PMs, but it simply cannot be said enough, hope you are enjoying some well deserved down time.

Anyone want to take bets on whether Magnetic24 knew what the hell I was talking about when the magnetized numeral +1'd my post?
