06 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Brazil]:Yeah I hear ya. I hate when people do that.

Would love to try this world map again but maybe with shorter phases.
06 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Near-East]:yeah 2 day phases are a joke
06 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Brazil]:I think the point of the 2 day phase was to give a lot of new people a chance to take their time and figure things out. but really, 24 hours is more than enough time.
06 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Near-East]:Agreed
25 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2006: [India]:My fellow world powers... I have now been betrayed by the only two people I was working with. You may allow me to be destroyed, or we can all attack the Near-East player. Once I am eliminated he will simply turn on the Western player until he has gained control of Europe and Asia. My destruction signs your own, do not allow the betrayer the victory!
25 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 2006: [Near-East]:If you feel betrayed by both of us, why single me out for the global attack? That's not very nice :(
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: [Near-East]:Can someone please explain to me why the game doesn't say that Oz just missed his turn when it says he hasnt logged on in nearly the past 3 days and the turn just progressed?
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: [Ghana]:I think there's a glitch that if someone has a phase where they have no orders to submit it won't announce that they didn't submit orders in a previous round. Saw it in another game as well.
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: [Near-East]:So if Oz misses the next phase where he has orders, will he be kicked?
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: [China]:Technically, phases are 48 hours, so in order for him to enter Civil Disorder (CD), he would need to be gone for 96 hours. That is my understanding.
02 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2007: [Near-East]:He would need to be gone for more than that, because he is not in this retreat phase, that is what we were saying
11 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:After India and Oz die, do you guys want to vote to Draw and just call this good?
11 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Well Argentina and US have to go too.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Frozen-Antarctica]:I'd be amenable to that.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [India]:There can only be one
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Western-Canada]:No draw yet but potentially later on
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:lol at this point we must have some record of longest game ever...
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Ghana]:Yeah, I'm getting a bit sick of this map.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Two day phases are deadly
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Crap ton of new and fun maps on the VDip site - we'd love to see some of you over there.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [Ghana]:once I'm not in so many games over here I'll move over. New maps look interesting.
13 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Looking forward to it!
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [India]:And behold, Near-East has betrayed another ally. Is anyone surprised? The people of India cry out for justice.
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:I will say I am pretty disappointed that we had so many people go into Civil Disorder (Leave the Game).
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Brazil]:It took me 13 phases - so maybe 26 days - to lose though I knew based on my partner stabbing me after the 2nd diplomacy phase that I was done. So 3 weeks to play a losing game. That just gets boring after awhile. So maybe that's why people dropped out. There needs to be a way to surrender or something.
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:Please check out the VDip site we found. It has a Concede button. I think we also learned never to create / join a 48-hour phase game.
16 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:India-Your former people have told me already they prefer my judicial system of Viking Law. Die knowing they are in better hands.
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:Now that it is just the 5 of us, there is no more reason to wait 48 hours to do 1 turn. All in favor of readying moves on a daily basis?
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:just ready as soon as you're ready. It's not like the phase will pass before you're back if it passes sooner.
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:Exactly
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:just ready as soon as you're ready. It's not like the phase will pass before you're back if it passes sooner.
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:but really, I only see this game going one of two ways:

1. Western Canada gets close to winning, we build a stalemate line and draw.
2. Near East gets close to winning, we build a stalemate line and draw.

why play until January for an outcome we can see right now?
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:I don't think this map lends itself at all to a stalemate line. You need 44 to solo this, so the more likely scenario is the board turns on the leader(s).
18 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:Isnt that what Ghana was saying?
18 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: [China]:You can't forge a stalemate line on this map. The only way the three smaller nations eke out a draw is by banding together and ATTACKING, which is the opposite of enforcing a stalemate (support-holds) line. Alternatively, they can hope you and W. Canada get bored of the game and agree to a 5-man draw.
20 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 2009: [Near-East]:India is probably so happy right now lmao
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:Near east, the world is watching you for your draw flag
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:Why would you think he is going to agree to a draw?? He's taking out W. Canada like it was the weekend garbage.
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Ghana]:because W. Canada agreed to a draw, which means NE stands alone.
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:No, I mean, if NE was going to draw, he wouldn't have cannibalized W. Canada. There is no incentive for NE to draw at this point - he's going for the solo . . .
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Kenya]:Jeff Day; hush
23 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:Just stating the obvious, Mr. Husher ;)
25 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:Well now we learned the truth. A player can miss 2 consecutive phases and still not be kicked out.
25 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Near-East]:(phases in which he had a move to make in)
05 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Near-East]:What happens when two people retreat to the same territory? Not saying it will happen this turn, just curious.
05 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:I would assume they bounce and both units are disbanded
09 Dec 15 UTC [Near-East]:Okay, you lot have put up one heck of a fight. I tried to go for the solo simply because this is the world map and also because this is my last game on diplomacy. However, I think if we have lasted this long it means we are deserving of a shared victory. As I sign the peace treaty that will end this world war, I do so with my peoples' best interests at heart. May their spirits be ever rebellious.

-Yaarrrrr East
09 Dec 15 UTC [Ghana]:I think it was definitely this game's time to go.

Well played all, and hard fought. If this is your last game, that's sad. It's been good playing against you in this and all of our games.
09 Dec 15 UTC [Kenya]:Good Game. I think this was my last one for a while as well.
10 Dec 15 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Thank you all! Good game.
