Must have thought I had said that. But didnt. I knew it didnt happen, but thought I had suggested it.

Hah, I thought so!
That's what happens when you delete all your game messages after the game ended!

I waited until I had written my AAR, so I could look at them, but yeah, probably

Yeah, when I was writing my AAR I didn't check my PM's either. ;)

But I'd use the example of Heptarchy 5, where Palin and I joined a game with two players very close to annihilating the rest of us; Palin and I were on about 4-5 centres and being reduced by a couple wach year. Yhanthlei in Scotland had one, not a home one, and wouldn't last the year out. It would have been easy to say "OK, nothing to play for", but I don't think I've ever been eliminated from a Forum Game yet and didn't intend to start then! (And now I know what to expect next time!)

Only hope was to split the big two, which we managed. We (including Kian's Wales, who joined us) gave absolute guarantees to each other about support not stabbing. Obviously it needed huge trust, but when you're losing what other option have you (except suicide!); and I kept a close eye on Kian in case he looked like using the opportunity for his own solo. It worked.



Fair enough Pedros, please don't think my style is to just cut and run the first sign of trouble. but the numbers were just not on my side and their was no one to split from Russia, but I do see your point, a player doesn't win until he actually wins. Great game though everyone and can't wait for the tournament!!!
