Game drawn
12 Apr 13 UTC (jmo1121109): Dear members,

Kenya was unable to enter orders due to the site errors. As fill in TD for dumbdell while he's away with a family emergency I have decided draw the game. I will give Near East the continent bonus since China would have been eliminated. Near East would have been stopped from a solo though. If anyone disagrees with my assessment please post here. I will leave the messaging enabled for another day. Please do not vote to draw or unpause in the meantime.

12 Apr 13 UTC [Russia]:I hate you Europe and I am glad you died too.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Brazil]:I think that I have a reasonable solo shot.
12 Apr 13 UTC [India]:BS, I had this.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Brazil]:Nah, I've got dibs.

I demand a cancel or Brazilian solo. I will accuse the mods of racism.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Near-East]:I don't disagree, but damn.....things were interesting. Good game all.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Argentina]:So, to clarify, this means that three continent bonuses will be given out? For Europe, Asia, and South America? What about the other two scoring systems? Will China and Oz receive PPSC points? How about Townshend points? Will the surviving players receive points appropriate to a 7-way draw? A 6-way? A 5-way?
12 Apr 13 UTC (jmo1121109): Yes on the 3 continent bonuses, Yes on the actual diplomacy points though I can give the rest of you the point difference if requested, for the tournament scoring this will count as a 5 way draw unless someone would like to make the case that Western Canada would have been eliminated before Near East's attack required a joint effort to stop.

@brazil, you caught me, I hate bright green with a passion and will never give it the respect it deserves #eliminatebrazil
12 Apr 13 UTC [Kenya]:Obviously, I am the one being helped the most after being locked out. Personally, I don't see giving N.E. Asia as a continent bonus without also handing out at least the Oz continent bonus to me. Given the time it would have taken to finish china, I would have a shot to get Africa, and could certainly have gotten the last three sc's in Oz.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Pacific-Russia]:As an uninvolved observer -- if you're going to count it as a 5-way draw, that assumes China and Oz were both eliminated. By far the most likely to do that would be NE and Kenya, respectively, and so it only makes sense to award the continent bonus for Australia to Kenya if you plan to award the Asia bonus to NE.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Near-East]:I agree with Kenya about the Australia bonus. Also, it was my intention to help Quebec finish off WC as more of my fleets made it around to the Pacific side. Who can really say how things would have developed though, so I'm not going to demand WC be excluded.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Quebec]:WC should definitely be included. Maybe, in time, with your help I would have killed him but it is as likely you would have turned vicious and destroyed my bonus.
12 Apr 13 UTC (jmo1121109): Alright, I did overlook the Australia bonus, that should to go Kenya. Looking at the map, and I consider myself pretty familiar with world games, I do not see WC being eliminated. It would have been too much of a risk that NE would have been able to get a foothold there.

I will leave this up for another day and then change the game back to gunboat and draw so it counts towards gunboat instead of press in the ghost ratings. Thanks everyone for bearing with me through this rather unfortunate problem.
12 Apr 13 UTC [Western-Canada]:Works for me :), GG everyone
12 Apr 13 UTC [Argentina]:I have no objections to Asia going to NE, Australia going to Kenya, Townshend being allotted as per a 5-way, and PPSC points being allotted based on the current standings (28 NE, 25 Kenya, 4 China, etc).

GG, all.
13 Apr 13 UTC (abgemacht): Hello all,
