11 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well if everyone unpauses then England can unpause the game when they get back. Besides, I believe England said they were getting back Monday
11 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yo guys, I'm back.

Sorry if I was unclear. By "through Monday," I meant "until Tuesday."

Anyway, let's unpause.
12 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: This is why I hate allowing pauses
12 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: If France doesn't unpause tonight, I'll involve the mods.
13 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry - something came up at work and I've been travelling.
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, If anyone has a request for the French contingent, please let me know. Otherwise, we shall enjoy the fine cities of the Ruhr
19 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Hold and ready?
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: We are disinclined to listen to the Germans, they speak with forked tongues :-P
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: And our language is not nearly as pretty as yours :p
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: That's just cause y'all sacked Rome but the French let themselves get conquered by Caesar. They'll be speaking English soon enough. Then we'll see who's laughing.
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: I've always appreciated the linguistic similarities of Deutsch and English, they must be close!
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: English is Deutsch soiled with Frrnch.
21 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Saxon sprinkled with Norman you mean?
21 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Tomato tomahto.
21 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: FYI the match was lost last turn when Russia refused to go along with me and insisted he could trust German, laving me no effective option but to turn on him.

Congrats on your win IEG.
21 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Wow, quite the diplomat. Did someone steal your juicebox? Sounds like you need a "timeout" and a nap. The grownups might still want to play.
21 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: The three of us only have 19 scs and little Eastern presence, so short of a bunch of resigns an I/e/g win is way off
21 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, I do like to be beside the seaside. I hereby demand that Belgium is partitioned along linguistic lines, and a new SC is created around the French speaking parts, to be occupied in perpertuity by the French government in exile
23 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Bad luck France - thanks for playing.
25 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Goddammit, missed the build phase. Not that I was doing so well anyway, but better to choose your own disbands than letting the code do it for you. How the hell does that work - I thought it was fleets in non-centers first? Shouldn't Bothnia go over Ukraine? Sigh...
25 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: A non ideal situation, sorry for how that worked out russia
25 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Builds and retreats aren't DATC compliant. I believe it's just alphabetical. Sucks.
25 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: My understanding was units furthest from your home centers got blown up first, with fleets before armies, and alphabetical order as the last tiebreaker.

The arrangement of my bookshelf and CD collection must be all messed up if Ukr comes before Gul in the alphabet.
25 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Ukr comes last in the alphabet, but I'm realizing now that Bla died too, so that can't be it.

I don't think there's a fleet preference, or know if there even should be, but all of your units were one away from home centers. I'll look into it some more, not that it really matters now.
26 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: So I actually went looking through the FAQ and found this:

"If someone has to destroy a unit, but doesn't enter destroy orders, what unit is destroyed?
It's done as the DATC recommends: It's the furthest from your home supply centers. Distance is defined as the smallest number of moves to get from the unit's position to a home supply center. When calculating the smallest number of moves armies can move across seas, but fleets can only move across seas and coasts. If there are two units both the same distance from a home supply center the territory which is first alphabetically is removed first."

I don't know where I got the fleets first thing, but regardless, according to that, Gulf of Bothnia should have been destroyed over Ukraine. I'm not going to ask that anything that's happened in this game be changed, but is it worth the trouble to email the mods to let them know of the error, so it can be fixed?
26 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I think we have a mod in this game who can pass that along to A_Tin_Can or Kestas. I think it's a known issue already though.
10 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Could y'all do me a favor and not finalize any retreats? I'm going away for about two days, and there's a small chance I won't have internet access.
10 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Or we could all be friends and not force anyone to retreat...
10 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: That is also a possibility. I'm gonna put a pause vote up in case it looks like I'm gonna NMR, but I don't think that's likely.
12 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Alright y'all, I'm back.

*passive aggressive stare at the short retreat phase*
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: It should surprise no one that Austria went out in a final fit of selfish assholery.
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm sure it would also be no surprise, that the one who insisted his own ego knew no bounds, would take a public shot.

For the dummies - The East couldn't work together, the West could - no point slowing it down after your egotistical bullshit ended any chance of making a game of it.
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Go team west!
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Still watching to see if anyone remembers it is WINNER takes all... ;)
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ignore france, I think we should all draw once russia is properly dead. You'll note my vote is up, and I didn't stop England taking sev.
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: :-P
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry :p
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria, there was one good alliance in the east until you stabbed your one friend. It was dumb and look where it got us.

Now, strife between Germany and England? Say it isn't so! As a child of divorce I'd so hoped to see evidence of one unbreakable relationship in my life!
13 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: England and I will stay together, this is a minor tiff ;)
16 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Minor tiff or no, it's come too late to do me any good. Clearly I misinterpreted the omen of the backyard bear sighting. Dosvedanya, gentlemen.
23 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: As of thursday I am going away until new years and am not sure what my internet will be like so I will need a pause
25 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: I have officially voted pause. I would appreciate it if you guys pause the game after this build phse
26 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Turkey?
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm back and ready to continue this game whenever
05 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1909: England could just vote draw an we would end this?
05 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey guys sorry didn't see that everyone else had voted unpause. While I would certainly prefer a draw, I won't hold up unpausing the game. To ensure everyone knows when the remaining halfday begins again I'll unpause around 8pm et tonight. If that doesn't work just holler
08 Jan 15 UTC Eh, fuck it. I'm never gonna get a clear shot at the solo with Italy being all sane. Good game, all.
08 Jan 15 UTC Gg
08 Jan 15 UTC Ah sweetness. Fuck Austria and Russia I somehow did it.
08 Jan 15 UTC Good game, I really enjoyed playing with you guys
