You can talk about generalities, don’t point out specific plans, cause that’s not really fair to the players in the game.


That was what I was thinking.

I remember in round 2 (as Russia) someone being like "wow FIR are controlling the game" and being like "uh... I'm trying to not have others realize that :P "

idk maybe the best approach is some kind of quicktopic where people can chat about games as they like, but players who are in the game aren't given the links?
discord servers might work too?

Also, I think this is a good example of why stuff like that has no effect. Some of us in the game were able to see it regardless but others were blind to it and could not get past their other in game grudges so that no matter who says it to them in the game or outside it wont change the behavior they have locked in because of so many other variables going on in game.

And now it’s down to league 1 only as the last league 3 game ended...

I know your thrilled to see another 3-way but I was happy to get it.

The league 1 games seem likely to take a long time to reach a conclusion, with one possible exception.

Did you force it by threatening to throw a solo?
