28 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: [Budapest]:Good game Sweden and Ankara.
28 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: [St-Petersburg]:New Sweden, I thoroughly enjoyed our interactions and playing with you.
29 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: [Sweden]:I just want to point out that I'm still open to a draw at this point. I will drop my draw vote after this phase though. You have been warned.
30 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: [St-Petersburg]:Frack. I'm surrounded by Sweden too.

Alright, I'm open to a draw then (guys, I'm going to need some help here)!
01 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Marseilles]:Does not matter how we fight, there is a 3 way draw going on
01 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:Oh man. I'm so lucky I didn't miss my turn. I haven't been on WebDip ALL YEAR!

Happy New Years Everyone.

I hope all your European conquests, in and out of this game, go well.
01 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Brest]:Greece & St. Petersburg: now that Budapest’s solo effort is fully apparent, do you guys want to try to stop him?

There’s not much the rest of us can do about it without you, but I know I am happy help in exchange for being included in the draw.
01 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Liverpool]:I’ve outlasted Belgium and Sweden. Result.
01 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Liverpool]:Good luck Budapest. St P is a treacherous **** :-)
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Greece]:Sure Brest, I've nothing to lose :)
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Marseilles]:Sad you did not answer me last year...
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Budapest]:Good luck everyone. It will be an interesting finish for sure! Happy New Year!
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Belgium]:Farewell, my compatriots. It has been fun!
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Budapest]:Good game Belgium. Well fought!
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:Farewell Belgium. I'm sorry about the stab. It was a good game, and I'd love to play with you again sometime!
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:I'm asking for everyone to vote pause
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:Family things and moving.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Budapest]:@St. P. - I think a one day pause is worth considering. Anything more than that and I will voice "foul. Given though the recent events, and the moves that just took place, having more time than the one day per phase (that this specific game is based on) given the circumstances seems quite "timely." Granted, I say this as it surely affects me, but I don't like the idea of having an indefinite time in "pause" after the most significant phase in years for the game. That does not seem to be in the spirit not the game and certainly on the surface, seems to favor those (you) who may wish to have more time to evaluate options. I am not trying to say the pause is not justified, I just think duration and context of the timing are worth discussing globally versus a blank "pause."
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Brest]:Budapest - Don’t be a dick. Real life trumps the game. If St. Petersburg says he needs a pause, then we should vote pause.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Brest]:I just don’t think St. Petersburg has done anything to warrant accusations of bad faith, and any advantage gained by more time is minimal. I don’t think players get to put conditions on a pause when real life stuff like moving intervenes.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Budapest]:@Brest - The game is diplomacy. Draws, Pauses, Alliances, etc. are all part of the game. I am not saying the pause is not justified, I am just saying the timing and duration should be discussed. St. P has also shared more context with me personally on why a pause is needed now, versus before the holidays, and that does not align to what was posted publicly.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Brest]:Rule 6 of the site rules provides as follows:

“The pause is there to stop players from missing their orders, but is not part of the game. As such pausing or unpausing should not be used for diplomatic gain, such as refusing to unpause unless other players will draw the game. If it is being abused staff may step in to sort it out.”

So, Budapest’s suggestion that a pause is “part of the game” is inaccurate and contrary to its purpose.

Budapest, if you know a reason the game should not be paused, say so. Otherwise, stop trying to dictate your terms on the pause.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Ankara]:Budapest begging me to ready orders to speed up my own elimination makes more sense now lol
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Norway]:Hey, hey, hey, it's getting kinda heated. Y'all can just play, but chill like us defeated.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:Yeah guys, I'm literally loading a moving van today and moving into the new place tomorrow at 4 EST.

I will be happy to unpause come Monday, and in the spirit of goodwill: should I contact any of you via messages before the unpause please feel free to globally shame me :)

Besides, even with the stab it's not like I have people to really conspire or work with anyway as the other great power is across the map.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:I do have to say: I'm addicted to Chaos games. These things are great!
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Greece]:Sorry all just catching up, voted pause.
02 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Greece]:Yes Marseilles I should have responded to you sooner!
06 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [St-Petersburg]:Hello all. Thank you for the pause. I'm as settled in the new place as I'm going to be.

Game on!
07 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: [Liverpool]:Yay - back to destroy a unit :-)
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: [Marseilles]:Just draw Bucarest, you cannot win this one
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: [St-Petersburg]:Well done everyone!
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: [St-Petersburg]:I have voted draw.
10 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: [Rome]:Dread it...
Run from it...
Budapest still arrives.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Brest]:Whew! I was glad to survive this one.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Brest]:Congrats to Budapest on a well-played game. Contrats to everyone else in the draw.

Thanks to everyone who stuck around and entered orders on time.

Good game.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Belgium]:Brest, you probably had the most topsy-turvy game I have ever seen. All the way to TUN and back to get included in the draw!
11 Jan 21 UTC [Belgium]:Well played everyone. Wish I could have made it to the end, but can't fault anyone for good play.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Brest]:I controlled four different centers throughout the game, but never more than two at the same time. It was a wild ride.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Greece]:Good game all!
11 Jan 21 UTC [St-Petersburg]:I went to sleep, woke up and see everyone "Good game all!"

My heart stops. Oh no, did I guess incorrectly?

I did not. but boy was that scary at the end. Well played. Phew. this was long and intense.
11 Jan 21 UTC [Marseilles]:Well play all ! Thanks for the nice game
11 Jan 21 UTC [Rome]:GG all.
16 Jan 21 UTC [Serbia]:Happy to see my two allies getting a piece of the pie. GG all
