11 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: (goldfinger0303): Hello all,

I am sorry to do this, but I will be disabling the wait-for-orders mode in this game and all remaining games in the Masters. This feature has unfortunately been systematically abused in most every game, and by more than a few players. It was implemented with the best intentions - to prevent NMR's - but it seems to have created delays, arguments and metagaming problems that impact the game far more than any NMR would.

If a player appears to be about to miss a phase, please email webdipmod@gmail.com asking for an emergency pause. I will not be able to monitor all games closely, so I trust everyone's honor as a player to help me in this manner.

Finally, I am deeply sorry for any problems caused in this tournament due to the wait-for-orders mode. The purpose of this tournament is to have fun, after all (well, and win) and anything that takes away from that I count as a poor reflection on the tournament, and thus myself.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to email or PM me.
11 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: Thank you for clarification, goldfinger0303. Austria and I had a huge discussion about this wait for orders option. While it will be removed in the future, I'm still not sure Austria was right to establish some sort of "punishments" or however he/she calls it, which are based on poor use of w4o and NOT on in-game diplomacy. I still strongly disagree with Austria's decision-making points in regards to me (in his sole opinion) wrongly using w4o.
11 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'll not finalize for the weekend I hope it is ok, lets go skiing!
11 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: thank you, benign overlord.
15 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1913: no excuse for Austria to "punish" anyone this time,
I was hoping he has enough honor to declare war openly, other then using weak wait for orders excuses to attack me....oh well.
15 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1913: To all: I am having a tough time at work with the yearend accounting closure, spending 16-17 hrs in the office these days, so Ill take the full turn to bid some time and will get back to you soon. Apologies as I do not mean to slow down the game.
19 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: There is no proper communication in this game, I will not enter my orders and will now email for a replacement. Italy says he hate draws, well the only other option is Austria's solo. It will be against the nature of the tournament to allow him have it here, but I don't care at this point.
The only interesting point left for me here is work with Russia, but even Russia barely replies and discusses, so for me this game is not interesting anymore, since I might as well enjoy gunboats where at least no-one swears at you if things don't go as they plan. I think it is reasonable to end it in a draw now, but since no-one wants it I will respect your decision and email for replacement.
19 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: I will enter moves for this turn, since w4o option is not there, the fact I overlooked.
19 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: Germany, I am totally angry with Austria because he took Rome, I am now 200% with you and Russia to stop Austria. So please stay with us. Draw shall occur fairly soon.
19 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: no one has requested a pause, but i see that RG voted pause. i assume this is to allow time for G to communicate with the TD about a possible replacement. if so, i am adding my vote to honor the implied request. if nobody actually wants a pause, then let's remove the votes and carry on.
19 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: That was the purpose of the pause vote, yes.
20 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: (goldfinger0303): I've paused this game so that no more orders go through while Germany is being removed. I do have another sub waiting in the wings, so this shouldn't take too long.
20 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: Wow, what an asshole that Germany player is / was.
21 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: I am against replacement of Germany, I made clear to him that I will now oppose Austria to stop this solo tentative, so his reasons to withdraw are now gone. Let's continue with him.
21 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: It's too late! The Germany you once knew is no more. I have risen to take his place.
21 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: (goldfinger0303): Italy - in his explanations for leaving the tournament, Germany never once mentioned this game as a reason. The fact is that the tournament is approaching a year long at this point, and it was a longer commitment than many bargained for.
23 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hey, I'm ready to unpause. Let's get rolling.
23 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1913: After reading the previous press, it seems that Germany's previous incarnation was less than charming. I hope that in the next few rounds of negotiations I can work with you all to remove the roadblocks caused by that.
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1918: Hi all, I'm turning in my thesis tomorrow and then leaving for Costa Rica for spring break until a week from Friday. Can I have a pause until then please?
25 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1918: Ready to unpause?
25 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1918: Yes!
02 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1919: "masters" game my ass.
the masters of the butthole perhaps.
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1919: My bad, y'all
07 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1920: Hi all,

Sorry I've been MIA. I'm going to sleep now, but I'll be on and sending out messages all of tomorrow.
08 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1920: You must be a tactical genius.
14 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1920: Austria decided he didn't want to work with me, so let's go ahead and draw all.

Ah well.
14 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1920: Like I've told all of you, I fully intended on completing the solo race with Austria. Since Austria didn't have the same plan, I don't care at all about decreasing the draw. I give you my word that I will not do so.
14 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1920: Like I've told all of you, I fully intended on completing the solo race with Austria. Since Austria didn't have the same plan, I don't care at all about decreasing the draw. I give you my word that I will not do so.
15 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1920: Hey, guys, I need a pause for a couple of weeks, is that ok?
15 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1920: Well, you don't have a build. Is it ok if we wait until you have a move?
22 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1921: how the hell did the lon-pic convoy fail? a bug?
22 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1921: North Sea is not adjacent to Picardy
22 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1921: argh so amateur
28 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1922: sorry guys for the missed turn, I was away for the weekend and thought I could get to a webcafe to connect but did not manage in time :(
12 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1924: this game took way too long.
I want to clarify something.
I m not going to attack italy or russia.
so if russia and italy agree then is there any reason to play this game austria?
14 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1924: Draw now?
15 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: what's the point of this austria? Don't you have anything better to do in your life?
15 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: DON'T LISTEN TO THEM, AUSTRIA. KEEP THE 2013 MASTERS GOING UNTIL 2015!!!
15 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: lol
15 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: the 2013 masters tournament can't conclude before the 2012 world cup tournament. that would upset the cosmic balance.
16 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: lol again
16 May 14 UTC Spring, 1925: and Great Scott!
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1925: What the hell are you doing I/F?
17 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1925: My draw vote is in. France, just come help me block Austria, and let's kill this game.
18 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1925: ok dude
21 May 14 UTC Is anyone telling Austria they still want to play?
21 May 14 UTC the ghost of jamiet... it speaks to me.
21 May 14 UTC wellllll, i was waiting to hear an affirmative response from all three of you that you were done, but i'm going to take lengthy non-responsiveness from the last of you as an indicator of lack of interest. despite the global press and the various draw votes, i was actively communicating with two of you about mutual interest in continuing the game up until the last phase. but... enough's enough, and i'm content to draw if i have no willing partner. GGA. thus endeth the 2013 masters tournament.
22 May 14 UTC actually I wanted to keep on playing, but did not manage to reply in time to Austria..
Guys, this was an amazing game, congrats to all of you!
23 May 14 UTC aw, man! :)
