Exxon fined for violating Russia sanctions
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-exxon-mobil-usa-ukraine-idUSKBN1A51UH

The Department of the Treasury just fined Exxon $2 million (that's right, million with an "M") for violating sanctions related to Russia's involvement in Ukraine. Why should Russia care about lifting sanctions if toothless enforcement is the alternative?

Playing with less than 7 players
I'm just starting a game to play with a few friends of mine, and because there will only be four or five of us, I was wondering if the game would actually start if we only had 4 players, or if it would just cancel and refund our bets. If it does cancel, is there a way for us to play a game on here with only the four of us?

[STRATEGY] Ancient Med Variant
Hello everyone. I love the idea of the 5 player variant. But searching online I am unable to find strategy guides for EACH individual nation. It also seems Carthage has a good advantage over the others. Also Rome is just as bad as Italy in classic. Anyone have input?

Do Republicans think that Russia is good or bad?
There seems to be debate on the right about whether Russia is to be trusted or not. (The left is uniformly suspicious of Russia). I'm seeing Republican lawmakers being skeptical about Russia, but rightwing media seems fine with them.

End Russia Sanctions Now?
Tillerson has already said wrt the election meddling that it is time to move forward. Why not go all out and just get rid of sanctions altogether? At the least, couldn't Trump just turn a blind eye to violations of the sanctions (Magnitsky Act) and return the 2 spy compounds? Who's gonna stop him?

Ready up already...
Why is there always that someone in a GB game that will not ready up?
I get that sometimes folks are travelling or away from connections, but seriously.... why is it _you_....Every Damned Phase?
Am I missing something, or is it just poor form?

Yes, you are missing the fact that you agreed to play a game with a certain phase lenght. You should assume the phases will take that long. Anything faster is a bonus.

Yes yes yes.
That bit is obvious. But why not ready up?

It could be because you want to have some more time to think about the orders.

I agree with ishirkmywork. It's not always helpful to have phases ending at random times.

Also, exercising control over phase end is a means of exerting pressure on other players, albeit crude.

Sometimes, I leave the orders as saved rather than just waiting until I am 100% and want to go to ready so that the other players can see that I am thinking deeply about my next move and not just waiting until the last minute because I wasn't checking.

Sometimes, if a player appears to be not trying very hard or distracted by putting in orders at the last minute and the moves aren't so good, the other players will just start attacking them. So I want everyone to know that I am thinking really hard about my moves, I just haven't decided what they will be.

@ishirk - that I get. I have all those things and travel a stupid amount, so I think I'm qualified to comment from that angle. Nothing new there.
@Swordsman - the other comments I had considered... yours is definitely a new one.
The country I am thinking of, in the game that provoked me into print mag indeed be deeply considering his/her moves.
But I ain't helping much. They's getting spanked.

Thanks for comments webdippers.

On a connected note, there's a 10hr GB game starting soon for impatient people like me.

In live games the problem is worse. 5min is too much for your builds, yet people don't ready up. I don't believe they need a bathroom break every phase.

Mon 17 Jul UTC
I alsways wait the whole phase. I can't tell you how many times I've set looking at the map after saving moves with 2 mins left and noticed a mistake or alternative move that actually plays better. If you don't want to wait the full plase play quicker games. Instead of playing 12 hour phases play something you can handle like 6

Yep. I enter first sketch moves immediately as insurance against a phase end I missed. Then I think for real and change and ready up. My grey check moves are usually marginally better than an NMR
CommanderByron (723 D (S))
Mon 17 Jul UTC
I've had it happen in a 24 hour game where I knew that every phase was going to adjudicate at 1pm my time. I entered moves at 10am logged off (i readied) and apparently the last guy readied around 11. The moves adjudicated. I ended up super busy and when I got back to the game it was 1130am the next day. (I assumed I still had til 1pm) but nope NMR.
