Look, I don't want to wreck the game on leaving so I could stay on on a caretaker basis the way Windjammer proposed.

I'm sorry it's irrelevant now. I can't see a way for me to resume things as they were.

It's been a fun. Nothing personal, guys.

We have a fundamental failure to communicate here. I've really enjoyed this game, but I'm not going to waste more of my time and nerves on this nonsense. I'm only regretting time and efforts put into this. It's clear we won't be able to agree on this technical, but crucial issue.

Congrats, you can have it by default. Strategy games are not the same anymore. Apologies to Spamage, you've done the best job you possibly could under the circumstances.

Fwiw, I wouldn't say I attacked Dereich's "conduct". It would be utterly idiotic for me or Lumine to threathen to quit/appeal to a moderator because Dereich choose to continue fighting. He's totally entitled to this, and we're not entitled to expect things being made easier for us.

I'll however stand by my opinion the Austria switch was a serious error which, even with no ill-will here, had to do damage to the game setup and I've explained why.

I've never been a fan of a losing player being able to rejoin immediately after suffering a game-over, because it makes things less competitive and less real. However, jumping from one country to other in the middle, especially a country belonging to other camp, is extremely problematic and I've explained why I feel so.

Somewhat right, but nothing dramatic as some says.

Lumine leaves, I'm leaving too. This is a matter of principle and solidarity for me.

In winter 1945, just months before the war in Europe would end, Hitler was ecstatic at the news of Roosevelts death. He felt that this was a sign of divine providence and there would be a new miracle on the Vistula in 1945. Despite the fact that the German army had been totally annihilated by the Russian and Allied advance, and was only a matter of time.

There was a actual miracle on the Vistula, back in the 18th century in a war with Russia and Prussia. The Russian czar died, and was replaced on the throne by a extreme Prussophile or just a complete moron.The war was going extremely well for Russia, and Russian troops had smashed the Prussian army and were marching towards the Vistula and Berlin. The new Russian emperor in a bought of insanity, halted his army and settled for a white peace with Prussia, despite being able to take Berlin.


Actually, it was already spiring 1945 when FDR died and Hitler indeed believed it was the second "miracle of the House of Brandenburg" (the "Vistula miracle" was something else).

Oh, one thing that I just noticed. There's no mention of any Ottoman-Austrian clashes, and I believe I sent my forces to action.

This is confusing.

His Sacred and Imperial Majesty is surprised with a strange, belligerent statement made by the Georgians. The Treaty of Paris does not even mention Georgia and there was an error of the map which we haven't noticed until now.

The Ottoman Empire had no intentions to provoke hostilities with Georgian Kingdoms, but let it be clear that trying to take any advantage from our military involvement in Europe will be meet with decisive action. Even with heavy deployment elsewhere, the Sublime Porte had capabilities of dealing with that problem. The choice is yours.

OK, this is the first time I'm requesting such a thing, but I'd like to have pause in the game to see if this can be solved.

I had a great chemistry with Lumine and I honestly can't see myself proceeding as usual if he departs.

I don't want to look as somebody trying to be holding the game hostage, but I'm not going to lie: I've had a great chemistry with Lumine during the play and I have hard time seeing it being such a fun without him.

Thank you for your message, Spamage. I'll adress it later.
118  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: Concert of Europe: Rules and General Discussion Thread on: September 16, 2017, 06:35:14 am
I guess I'll be the one to air long-standing grievances this time.

I think my record in the first Balance of Power shows I'm not a player that throws a towel after first or second major setback. But I feel the game was damaged when Dereich was allowed to jump in as Austria. I don't want to accuse him of cheating or something, but I stand by my opinion this had created a set of circumstances that affected the developments in a way it wouldn't happen in the universe itself as well as produced an unfair disadvantage for my side in the game.

First of all, Dereich had the advantage Francis couldn't possibly have. As a Portugal player he was privy to our plans and he knew about out longterm goals, policy toward Austria etc. And there is no way, no matter how sportsmanlike one intended to be, it wasn't going to play a significant and unrealistic role.

Second, the switch resulted in Portugal to leaving the war in a sudden way that was caused by player jumping, not so much in-universe developments.

Third, while Lumine and me might've made mistakes such as rash abolition of the HRE, I just can't see this out of the blue Austrian resurgence. I know deus ex machina moments happened in RL, just as Frederick the Great's getting a break due to Elizabeth's death and idiot Peter switching sides against Russia's interests, but nothing like that occur ed here. On the contrary, the Habsburg were deserted etc. And appearently Austrian commanders willigness to purse for peace, logical after what occured, was forgotten or something. The f**king Austrian state was essentially decapitated and now the corpse is walking around like it didn't happen?

I've tried to carry on despite my doubts, but I don't think this can be repaired.

Assuming Harris isn't wild about Feinstein, it'd be very hard to a Senator to oppose her/his colleague from the same state and the same party.

If Lumine quits, then I'll have hard time staying on, because let's be honest, it won't be the same.
121  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: Concert of Europe: Gameplay Thread on: September 15, 2017, 05:52:02 pm
Just to make it clear, pledging not to interfere militarily with the ongoing civil war does not equal recognition of one Sophie Auguste Friederike von Anhalt-Zerbst as a legitimate regent of Russia. For the Sublime Porte she remains an usurper, illegally occupying the place rightfully belonging to Ivan IV. And lands that were seized by the Ottoman-Crimean forces before hostilities ended are being handed over to his troops and his administration, not any of any other pretender.

Urusper Catherine's demands that Prussia hands Ivan to her "so he can be delivered justice" are nothing but proclaiming a desire to committ a deplorable act of regicide upon the rightful Emperor.

An observation

In spite of the fact that Democrats receive 90% of the black vote while Republicans receive 10% of the black vote

Both Republicans and Democrats currently have 50% of the black Senators

Just sayin'

 

Wasn't there a brief period of time between Mo Cowan's departure upon Markey's election and Booker's election that GOP actually had 100% of black Senators?

In any case, unrepresentation of African American in the Senate is a disgraceful.
