08 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Guaroz (Gamedirector): (Guaroz): Hi all,
this is the Benchmark for this game:


The silence is ON, so if you need any clarification please PM me.
02 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1907: GameMaster: Germany voted for a Draw. If everyone votes Draw the game will end and the points are split equally among all the surviving players, regardless of how many supply centers each player has.
08 Mar 15 UTC Guaroz (Gamedirector): The silence is OFF and it will be for 3 days
08 Mar 15 UTC Guaroz (Gamedirector): Hey raapers! Are you aware that, had France voted for the draw 5 minutes earlier, then you would have been out? That 8th SC has saved you! What a dangerous vote by you... You crazy! :)
08 Mar 15 UTC Good game all. I have to admit I wasn't excited when I saw Lowlands as my country. I lasted longer than I thought I would after seeing so many coming at me. Congrats to Raapers for being the only one at 8... And to Nickbar1 for surviving..
08 Mar 15 UTC Wow, I didn't do the math. I just figured my early vote for a draw was the only way to persuade everyone else (especially England) to move against the Juggernaut. I also didn't expect to hold Buda, was just trying to stall Russia until Turk made a decision.

Good game all.
08 Mar 15 UTC GG all.. except me.
I probably should have insisted in my alliance with Russia, but started wondering of a possible stab, with the result that it was me who started fighting Russia, and failed to kill Italy (I should have stabbed him in Naples..). In short, I was sort of "frightened", and failed to take advantage of a big opportunity.
08 Mar 15 UTC I hoped you wouldn't chicken out, I really wanted this draw reduced way more :(
09 Mar 15 UTC You're completely right. sorry.
09 Mar 15 UTC I was thinking for a while if i should just sit there and wait for somebody to come and assist me against germany. But france was gaining strenght as well and that was annyoing and fearsome. Russia didn't seem to make great progess against the single german tank :)

I should have waited for italys next move, he would maybe have assisted me now with france which i hoped for...

In the end i decided for the draw because i was pretty sure i would get into the next round and was one of the bigger survivers anyway with still a good change of getting in the final.
