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?


yes discord! Also, join the discord.


is there a pdl discord?

No but there is a playdip discord that could probably add a nice PDL channel if we wanted.

Without going into any detail, let me just say, what a MASSIVE turnaround in 1.3.3.

Mildly surprised you'd say that. I feel like just eyeballing the board at 1902 builds

and it's not that hard to predict where the game was probably going.

I see a huge difference between the state of the board in Fall 1908 and the state of the board now. I will try to save any further comment for after that game ends.

Retrospective predictions are not very impressive. The skill lies in predicting the future before it actually happens. Then you have to _make_ it happen, exactly the way you predicted that it would.

But the game is still running, so I won't say any more.

It isn't anymore lolol

But my point had been more of a "there wasn't really anything CRAZY about the turnaround, the game state was broadly predictable in the sense of a successful E/F alliance, with all other powers in disarray, will typically lead to E/F doing what they like"

I could eyeball that board at winter 1902 and say the outcome was very likely going to be one of

1) EFG 3-way
2) EFT 3-way
3) EF 2-way
4) E or F solo
