Spring 1846

Postby Morg » 06 Feb 2012, 00:52

Ok, so we're having some difficulties. I have given Yhanthlei notice that Winter was his last NMR without being replaced. I gave him a little extra time because the message notifying him of his winter build hasn't yet left my outbox. Should there be another NMR by Great Britain, I will find a replacement and Spring will start again (though everyone is free to finalize to speed it along).

I will need spring 1846 orders by Saturday the 11th at 1600PST or 2400GMT. Strict deadlines are in effect.

13/24 SCs needed for victory

Time out here, you cant replace him if he NMR's in Spring...

That would only be his second order season with an NMR, and they wouldnt be consecutive.

Even if it was his second in a row, you still have to let the NMR stand...

Those are your rules from the beginning, you cant just change them now.

(Side note, I have done exactly what you are doing, in one of the games I GM'd, so if you decide to restart spring I totally understand and my objection to it is only because he has been completely uncommunicative with me and him NMR'ing is good for me.)

Well technically it'd be his third consecutive NMR and my original rules call for expulsion after 2, this restart would allow Yhanthlei a small measure of forgiveness (Also I wrote that rule back in October so I didn't really remember too much about them myself ;) ) and not detriment the game (despite whether or not that would be good for individual players ;) ).

Nice try though.

Was worth a shot, but generally consecutive NMR's are for order phases not build/retreat (same as how the site runs...)

But hey, cant blame me for trying.

If I had to guess I would say to start looking for a replacement already. I don't think this guy is coming back. No games on the main site. Lots of NMRs in the forum... :x :evil:

Yeah, my outbox isn't clearing either. I'll start sending out feelers to the reserves list soon.

if it is in your outbox it just means it was not read, not that it is impossible to be. i would start looking ƒor a replacement now.

Yeah, I have a replacement player.

Haroonriaz will be picking up Great Britain as soon as the end of the phase finally ticks over. Yhanthlei still hasn't read the PMs so there isn't a high percentage that there will be any surprises.

The phase will repeat and will be 72hrs long unless I get everyone's orders finalized. If you don't want to change the orders you've already sent, just PM me that you've finalized them. I'll send out a PM notification of this development when the phase actually ends.
