MAGA - what a great speech! Future looks bright.
Must be exciting to be an american today. Prosperity and optimism and winning are so much more fun than divisive bullying and globalist theft and war with russia. Plus Barron is hilarious. Glorious stuff! Good on you democracy.

"How on earth do you solo in public press."

The nice thing about public press is that you can see for yourself. I think my main takeaway is that if you're courteous and polite, everyone else will want you to solo. I feel like the rest of the players ended up very pleased to see such a kind and gracious player triumph.
Zybodia (292 D)

Is that why they all were responding to your press at the end?
goldfinger0303 (671 D)
Fri 07 AM UTC
Yes, Congratulations to Balki for the solo in Group C Public Press!

With that, our Finals bracket is almost filled!

From Group C, we have Teams Cascadia and Dixie! All other Group C teams are now eliminated.

From Group B, we have Teams Balkans, Sweden and Chicago! Team Chicago is holding on by a thread, and could be displaced by several different teams from Group A depending upon the outcome of that final game.

And from Group A, we have Teams California and Mid-Atlantic! Though technically all groups that still have a living player have a shot to qualify. A solo gets anyone in! A draw, depending upon the size, could advance several teams.

As an aside, it is interesting to know that all of the top seeded teams besides Team Greater Lakes have qualified for the Finals. Team Sweden is the outlier here, but as vixol would be quick to point out, their players are experienced.

An interesting setup to an interesting last game from the Group Stage, which will have a lot of impact!

Zybodia (292 D)

So far, that throw is looking like a savvy move, since they're currently in line for a finals spot.
vixol (884 D (B))
Fri 10 AM UTC
Yeah, that is the meta aspect of it. It looks like it actually paid off to throw the game to me. Throwing from emotion is imho bad, throwing from meta-reasons is not.

"Solo = tournament over, effectively, 90% of the time."

Tell that to 2012.

In other words, I'm quite enjoying the cutthroat wars of words, ever-shifting alliances, and supports into and out of Sweden. Oh, and the actual Diplomacy games too, I suppose.
vixol (884 D (B))
Fri 12 PM UTC
Actually, I would play for second place. Or third. Always play for the best score you can, right? If it looks like my team will end sixth, then I will play to take my team to fifth place.
chluke (12563 D (G))
Fri 12 PM UTC
Congratulations on the victory, Balki. It's wonderful to see that courtesy and respect can still win out. I hope that you will consider switching over to Full Press for the finals, so I may have the chance to throw a solo to you and prove to everyone that good triumphs over evil. ;)

Congratulations also to Gen Lee, Nikola, vixol, and CSteinhardt for impressive Round 1 wins.
