Classic, Survivors-Win Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
28 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1902: I'm not saying that the end of the game is fixed, only the next few turns.
28 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1902: And now Russia is back! Looks like this game is going to keep on going!
30 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Hm... Looks like the three superpowers are going to be Turkey/Austria/Germany, with me or england being the secondary powers (sorry france/russia, things are looking very bad for you two)..
No clue who will win yet though, still a pretty big tossup.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: No Russia, no France...
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Damn it, Austria, I trusted you!
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: I know. And you were growing too powerful too fast.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Says the biggest man on the map. To arms! We cannot allow this treacherous so and so overwhelm us all.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, who's going to turn on me? Russia (lol)? Italy and Germany are busy going for France's corpse.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Maybe we should bump the thread to find a replacement?
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: We should, although I'm not sure who would want to play Russia.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Can we even replace somebody in WebDiplomacy? Unless Scelly9 gives up his account password or something.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yup we can replace inactive.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Voting for pause while we do that.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Huh. What button do you press to do that?
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Pause, directly between the nations listing and where you put in orders. Next to it is the Draw button.
01 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: I know about the pause button. I was taking about replacing inactive people.
02 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: I notice that we are not pausing?
02 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: We can't pause till france drops out, since he isn't going to vote for a pause on the principal that he isn't here. I guess I will vote for pause anyways.

Probably no one will want to play russia, but russia DOES have a pretty good comeback potential even at this stage, if he is able to play German/Austria/Turkey (who is probably on the defensive now) against each other in his defense he might be able to survive for quite a long time (and possibly regain some power if the player is good enough).
France appears to be in better shape, however he will be down to three centers max by the end of next year (he he somehow keeps brest and paris) and won't have any possibility of regaining the ones he lost or getting more.
04 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: I canceled my pause vote since it doesn't look like there is anyone interesting in replacing one of the players, and having the game pause for no reason is a bit pointless.
05 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Behold, a miracle in Bulgaria! The fleet of the oppressive Austrian is not only defeated, but blasted from the face of the earth. Truely, the will of the Ottoman and the strength of our cannons can triumph over the Red Menance!

((I like writing ridiculous political speeches :P))
10 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: France has returned???
10 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I guess so, but I'm not 100% sure what good it'll do exactly.
10 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Kinda pointless for him to return and then not submit any orders.
10 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think he just wanted to check how the game was turning out, which *is* rather annoying since it will delay the game by up to a day.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Out of curiosity, does England's unit in Belgium even have anywhere to retreat to?
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nope, but he still need to choose to destroy it.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Huh. You'd think that the game would automatically choose that for him.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Anyway, this is built, not retreat. He need to destroy two of those 4 units. I'm betting on the North sea and Wales, or North Sea and Holland.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: It doesn't automatically destroy it for him on the logic that it want to make sure he knows that his unit dies. I don't agree with the logic, but thats the reason.

I am thinking north sea and holland, so he at least has a chance at defending england.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well not really because he would be back down to 1 center after a year, so he is in pretty bad shape whatever happens.
11 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: That's assuming that he doesn't lose both centers at once, which is possible.
12 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: This is such bullshit. The game ignored my order to move from Yorkshire to Liverpool. Now I lost because of that.
12 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: You sure you saved it?
12 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Well he must have saved something, since the fleet in the English channel moved to... Cornwall? Whatever it is. That is odd.
13 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: That's Wales
13 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Huh. It's hard to tell with England's fleet exploding, I guess.
13 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Is it Everyone Attack Turkey day or something?
13 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Huh? I could've sworn it was Everyone Ignore Germany and Instead Attack Poor England Day.
13 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm pretty sure that it's "We're all Embroiled in our own Little Conflicts" Day.
14 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: No, its everyone attacks england day.
Poor little england.
14 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Drats, my English channel navy didn't (attempt to) move to london like it was supposed to.
Now England has it occupied again.

JUST DIE ALREADY ENGLAND, NOBODY LOVES YOU.
15 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: FUCK YOU ITALY
18 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey, Germany. Hit ready.
20 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am voting for Draw in Spring 1909. Good game, folks.
20 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Eh, it probably could have been better if we had less AFK people.
20 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I consider any game where I am not immediately killed to be a good game.
20 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well, I guess that is true. It certainly is one of my better games.
21 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just waiting on Italy now.
21 Oct 12 UTC ANNNNDDD thats game.
Good game folks, sorry about stabbing you austria.
22 Oct 12 UTC Yay.
