Game drawn
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll need a pause, a little bit longer, starting in the early morning of Thursday (8/4) until, probably, Monday (8/8). I am going back home in Brazil after almost one year living in Portugal and will need some time to assure an internet access there (and also to rent an apartment, indeed). If I get the internet working earlier, we can unpause.
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Then should we even unpause today?
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Oh we did...lol
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Yes, we can get one phase passed at least! Maybe we get new analyses in the game thread in the meantime ;-)
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: England, is there any chance you can finalize either at like 9 or 10 am EST or after 6 pm EST? I can't get to a computer from about 8 am to 5:30 PM, and I would hate to miss something because of that.

Thanks!
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Ok I'll finalize sometime between 8:30 and 10:30 EST, I can't guarentee anything more than that.
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Dang. Sorry guys, something came up at the last minute and I totally forgot to finalize. I think I'll wait for time to run out so that we're kinda on schedule.
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Well I think we might need a pause today so idk?
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: pause vote back in just in case..
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Well it is Austria........dont know if he still needs it........he said in a earlier post he needed it from today till Monday
06 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry guys. I am typing from a lan house now, I do need the pause until Monday.
06 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Lucky for you everything got forced pause..so it didnt matter if we didnt pause or not..
06 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Uh-oh. I need a pause for a full week. I'll be back by next sunday.
08 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm back. When you're ready.
13 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm back.
14 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: France has not got on in awhile...I guess we should give him like a few days and then see if anyone wants to take his place...since he is not in a bad spot.
14 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry everyone, I'm here and unpaused. I hope people are okay with the timing.
14 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good enough for me!! Lets do this thing..
15 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Have any of you been following the SoW2 thread?...some players have lost interest..after a long pause. I hope we dont have that here.
16 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm still interested and the timing is good for me.
16 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: me too
22 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Im really thinking about ending playing diplomacy......so yea...I might be on tomorrow might not....still enter my moves and will still honor any agreements I made and break any promises I did intended to break..
31 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: How?
07 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: ...well that's lovely. Apologies to all for the nmr. I was actually on earlier on in the phase, but for some reason it didn't register that I had no orders in, and I let myself fall asleep an hour and a half before the phase changed. To be honest, though, it wouldn't have changed a thing. With the tactical guesses that I was going to make, Italy would have gotten Greece anyway. Again, apologies, and I hope that i can avoid this kind of thing from here on out.
11 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey everyone,

I need to apologize for my complete lack of communication. Real life has been crazy the past week or so and I have basically just been making moves - a recipe for disaster in a game called "Diplomacy."
11 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey, it's better than not making moves at all. :P
14 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: So is everyone busy or every one ignoring me..?? : (
14 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Crazy busy.. final version of a journal paper due today.. I'll get back to folks much quicker starting after 5PM tonight or maybe tomorrow morning
14 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Crazy busy!
15 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Sorry about the NMR. Looks like things worked out fine, but I'll try to be better.
16 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Is anybody up for a five way draw?

Im sorry this game has taken a turn for the worse..with Two NMR's and no messages for quite some time now. If every one is super busy than we might as well draw.

I am only doing this because both NMR's really screwed me over as I tried to help both countries that did it.
16 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well its not the only reason as I did say the lack of messages I have been getting back after I message is a lot.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am opposed to a five way draw. If France CDs, I might consider a four way.
France has been online during this turn and chose not to submit any orders.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Maybe a pause then...Just to allow him to regain whatever in real life he is so busy with and get back into Diplomacy..

Because right now it is lets four way but soon with you in Spain it is only a matter of time before you use another excuse as too why we shouldnt four way draw.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: "lets four way"
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: And this turn is pretty much two people NMRing since Turkey did not respond to my last message...while it showed he was online when I sent it...so either he got off or ignored me..

If he got off then we have no plan and will probably be screwed.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm in agreement that if france CD's again we need to do something. I'm in favor of pause and replacement, and if no replacement can be found then 4 way draw.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oh completely forgot we could pause and replace..but since he did login and do the retreat phase it will take another turn for him to CD so I hope he gets on and explains.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just because Turkey is tired of listening to your whining does not mean he should be considered NMR.
He has submitted his orders, it is unfair to equate giving you the cold shoulder with not meeting his obligations in the game.
17 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am not whining to him...I am only whining to you...
18 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Fair enough, I apologize for the oversight.
Are we looking for a replacement, or waiting for France to CD and then drawing?
19 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: So since game quality has degenerated, I'm not learning much anymore except how to take advantage of an NMR/CD, which I think I've had ample opportunity to pick up before this on this site. I was hoping to learn how to improve my mid game/end game and it looks like that's been tanked. I'd be in favor of drawing after france CD's.
19 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: For the record, I'd be fine with drawing too. Germany views pretty much reflect my own here.
19 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Well it seems he continues to log on but not make orders or acknowledge this games existence ... hmmm France can you please respond??
20 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1909: (fortknox): Sorry about the inconvenience, but france is being replaced. Please do not vote to unpause until the replacement has jumped into the game. Thanks!
20 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Can we all vote draw now?
France is in CD.
21 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1909: (fortknox): I forced france into CD. He didn't CD on his own.
New france is in. Please vote unpause at your own convenience.
23 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yea I am done............I guess I am going to get my first CD......

The game wouldnt turn out this way if it wasnt for the France CD...........

Maybe Germany still would of attacked me...but France was about to attack Germany and I was to help ...So it was bull shit that he CD's......I (besides France) was the most affected by the CD...............yet everyone is selfish and just wants to continue playing..yet it is obvious the game is super unbalanced now..............This game has been pissing me off the last month.........so I think I am just going to cool down...and Quit..Goodbye.
23 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Actually two CD's cause I am quitting my other game.
24 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Voting pause per goldfinger's request.
