[re-posting my arguments here:]

AardvarkArmy wrote:Whereas... There exists now a stark division between "haves" (with 8-11 centers each) and "have-nots" (with 1-4 centers each); and

Whereas... There exists no reasonable scenario in which any of the smaller powers will ever again gain ground, and, in fact, there exists no likely scenario in which any of the smaller powers resists devastating losses in the coming year; and

Whereas... The relative numerical parity of the big three (8-10-11) coupled with the particular geographic alignments and force-structures of those three powers renders highly unlikely that any one could overpower the other two

Let it hereby be resolved, that a cessation of hostilities be immediately agreed with a declaration of victory for:

Vienna (presser84), Madrid (kerrmit) & Dublin (AardvarkArmy)

while I do not believe this game is at a true stalemate position yet, the points AA has made are valid. Should the current tri-namic continue unchanged, I suspect his prognosis for the outcome of the game to be accurate. Thus I accept the draw currently proposed.

Madrid agrees that the "have-nots" will most likely all be eliminated within the year, given the current power structure. I also feel that two of the remaining powers could over power the other one, however I could see a long term struggle as the 2 vs 1 would probably be fluid in which country occupied each side of the conflict. With all of that, Madrid approves this draw proposal
