Classic, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
04 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I usually don't draw in 1904, it bogs down GR. If you're really leaving, I'm sorry to see you go, but I'd rather cancel. Although I'd also rather draw than keep playing if you're not around.
04 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Also, I thought you were going to "play this one out" and that you were "not participating in the forum"
04 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I second Zarathustra. If you were going to leave, Draugnar, why wait until now? Vaftrudner, I agree that playing with a CD Austria is not worthy, but certainly there would be a taker for the position, given the commanding territory.
04 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, if you can find a sitter, Austria?
04 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I will finish i guess. don't want to disappoint.
06 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Not ready, Draugnar?
06 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry. didn't notice.
06 May 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Not sure I minded - I'm already out lol
06 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Not sure I minded - I'm already out lol
24 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sorry for being so late. I just noticed that I'm the only one who hasn't finalised, I've been really busy IRL lately and decided to just take advantage of the long phases, I hope no one minds. If you want me to hurry up more in the future, I can take the time to.
24 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: It was meant as a game for busy people. Don't worry about it.
24 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: With a week between turns, cutting off a day and a half shouldn't matter, but it is your choice.
25 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: We did agree to finalize retreats and builds though, right?
25 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Is Italy really going to pull this? We all agreed to finalize retreats and builds. He has no choice but to disband yet he is screwing around and not even checking the game. Pretty poor gamesmanship.
25 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, it is a 7-day phase game and I know Italy was reluctant about the game due to having a pretty busy real-life. I don't think it is in poor form.
25 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yeah, I think Italy is on limited time. This has been pretty consistent all game Draugnar.
26 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: We did agree to finalize builds and retreats though, did we not?
26 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: As best we could. I doubt this is an intentional delay.
26 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm sure it isn't seeing as he hasn't been on the site since the turn ran. I'm just playing grumpy old man for some fun.
02 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: With Italy in CD, everyone who remains has played well and deserves part of the draw. To that end, my draw vote is up and awaits the rest of you all.
06 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I said this to Austria personally, but I will say it to all: I will not consent to a draw at this stage. The game is not deadlocked. Even were it so, alliances could change. Draws are for when there is deadlock, or when there is a country in NMR from the start.

There is too much going on right now, and to draw would be more of an insult to the game than would be to not pat everyone on the back for "playing well."
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I can agree with that.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Besides, Italy came back. You must defeat them!
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Not an intentional delay... and clearly I'm not the only one making use of the agreed upon 7-day phase (since I finalized and the game didn't cycle).. anyhow, thanks to the players who are understanding about "real life" commitments and whatnot... those that aren't, kindly go stuff it in a cannoli :D Viva Italia!
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: you were gone long enough you CDed. That's at least 2 weeks you went missing.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: CDed? Sorry, but what does that mean?
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: It measn you didn't submity orders for two consecutive turns. CD=Civil Disorder. And it is considered bad form to NMR (No Moves Recorded) for one turn. CDing (NMR two turns in a row) means someone else could have taken over your position and is something you want to avoid as it will get you a bad reputation on the site.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, you clearly know more about this than I do, but the order history does show I moved the last few cycles, so I remain a bit confused... Also, not sure if you noticed, Draugar, but I am new to this game in general (which seems to be friendly enough, with the exception of one player alleging "bad form" in a game that everyone else agreed is "a game for busy people")... Didn't you also say you "*wanted* the long phase so I can stop hanging out on this infernal site"? In addition to that, I'm not sure you are in any position to lecture me about good/bad form, considering in the beginning of the game you apparently "left the site" (creating much confusion about the status of this game and some delay, if I recall correctly) only to come back (without explanation or apology) to finish the game you started while "not starting any new and not participating in the forum." Sounds like you really could use a break from "this infernal site," as it clearly causes you some degree of unnecessary emotional turmoil. Anyhow, I do apologize to all for any delay. I did not mean to delay anything, but, like many of you, am a legitimately busy person with life commitments that can supersede gaming at times - and Draugar, I'm sorry if you took this personally, but really, it's just a game (and supposed to be a friendly one at that). I will do my best to check in periodically assuming the game can still move forward, and would appreciate your understanding as we finish this up. Thanks.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I wasn't upset and not taking it personally, but you were in CD due to missing retreats and builds I guess.

My earlier comments were just to have a little fun. Sorry if you took that personally. As long as you show up once a week and follow the previously agreed upon finalizing of retreat and build phases, I'm fine with it.

But the fact is, somehow, you were in CD. Everyone here saw it.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I think I figured out how you went into CD. IIRC, there was a discussion that Kestas put code in place so that if a person is at one unit only and NMR or the NMR disbands them to one unit, they automatically go into CD. So be careful not to miss a phase with just one unit left or you get put in CD by the system. So you only missed the week on the retreats/disbands.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: CDed? Sorry, but what does that mean?
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Oops, don't know how that ^ re-posted. At any rate, I'm a nub, and appreciate you cutting me some slack. Looking forward to finishing. Cheers.
07 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: No worries Foo! Hang in there!
09 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1906: :D
25 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I guess I could have stopped the loss of Bul, but no worries. Got busy and forgot to actually enter orders (rare for me).
25 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oh and I love that awesome convoy!
25 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: Cross-world Convoys for the win!
25 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: Might I suggest that France has played hard and done well and unless Germany or England expects to pull off a win, we could four way draw now that Italy CDed?
25 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: France has entered the same moves for almost the entire game. It's not exactly playing hard.
26 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: Well I have and don't want to be eliminated
30 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Let's just get this MCF done with. I'll make certain gryncat gets the win by throwing everything at Germany and not supporting any of my old Italian holdings.
06 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Oh Draugnar, you are quite something.
10 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Gratz on the win, gryncat. Ank, Tun, and Bel give other to you guaranteed and I ain't even gonna try to stop you cause Germany was an idiot and didn't see it coming while I was screaming at him to watch for the stab.
15 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Seriously? You had an easy win and didn't take it?
16 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Draugnar, sometimes people play games to have fun, not to win. We have stated multiple times that this is a low-key casual game. We told you this right off and you said that is why you were going to stick around and play this as your only game. However, since then you have been nothing but upset by the fact that it was a low-key casual game. This game was played for fun and a means of chatting with friends. In other words, for fun. Neither gryncat nor I ever intended on winning because that was never our objective. F
16 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: un was the only objective.
16 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Also, I believe you are about to owe the website a $50 dollar donation.
16 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Don't worry. I'm not actually upset. I am surprised though that, at the end, when it was so close to being a win, he didn't just grab it.

Of course, you all could still do me a solid and draw now. I did take over an abandoned position to be nice and help the game along so it could continue to be fun. I just find chainsaw diplomacy fun when I am obviously on the losing end of the ticket.

Oh and if you draw with me in it now, I'll double that $50 to $100 to the site (just got a not-insignificantbonus, so Kestas may as well get a small piece of it for the site).
17 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: lol
17 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: Oh well, it was worth a try.
