Modern Diplomacy Fall 2007

Postby UpQuark » 02 Feb 2013, 07:00

Congratulations to ITALY!

Italy managed to grab Rumania from Russia to cement 33 SCs for a win. The last few years were a very tough struggle between Italy and the combined forces of Russia and Germany… Well fought gentlemen.

OMG!!! FOUR YEARS of stalemate!

You guys both played an AWESOME game: Sanguinem - I still don't know how you managed to catch up from a 9-center deficit and hold on; Haroonriaz - you pulled off one of the GREAT come-back stories, from a 4-center corpse in 1999 to a 7-center lynchpin at the end.

And thanks to both of you for persevering and not goiong NMR despite the stalemate drudgery!

Well played!

And, to UpQuark: THANKS for another FANTASTIC job as GM... adjudicating these looooong lines of stand-offs would have driven me, well, even more nuts than I am! I'll ALWAYS be glad to join one of your games!

Congratulations to AardvarkArmy. I knew this year would be the last, This is one of the most brilliant performances in recent PlayDip history and thoroughly well deserved. He's certainly one of the best players on this site by far and I respect him immensely, especially for this game (though not as much for WWIV haha ;) ). I am glad for the result though I was fighting towards a three way. Italy deserved it and it's a worthwhile finish after 17 diplomacy years. Nice playing with you too Sanguinem.

Thank you UpQuark too. Your strong force holds together the nucleus of quality diplomacy on this forum pretty well.
More than half of Diplomacy games are ruined because players leave them half-way.
