Is this game just someone making fun with their game title?

182466. PDL D1 Sep C

There was a password issue in the creation of 182466 which meant non-PDL participants got into the game.
The actual PDL D1 Sep C game was recreated & is in progress 182483.
The other game filled & started, but is nothing to do with PDL.

Oh, that makes perfect sense. I did check the participant list of both, and it was clear which one was PDL and which wasn't, just didn't know the reason for the duplicate.

Yeah, as soon as someone had joined I couldn’t delete or rename it.

Ban............

The rest has been deleted as this poster is trying to be kinder and gentler in his old age.

It is a work in progress.

Thank you,

Captvimes and Tolpuddlemartyr have surrendered from D2 Sep A and have been removed from the league.

They have been replaced by TheSlyHunter and EUPH1ST, in whatever order they join the game in.

I guess my games have now been finished. Maybe I should've written something about 179971. PDL D1 July B, where I managed to finish with a solo as Italy. Not something I expected when I saw which country I was assigned. In 1901 Austria was VERY suspicious of me, so I thought it would be a rough game for me, but somehow we managed to build a very long lasting alliance... well until my betrayal, I suppose. I expected him to stab me at some point too, but maybe I misread him because of his suspicions in 1901? The game also had one of the most lively public press I've seen in any game, for better or worse.


182483. PDL D1 Sep C, my last game, ended with a sudden 6 way draw in 1905. I guess there was no more life left in the game. When people refuse to negotiate, there's nothing left to do. Of course you can point out that *I* was just as much of a problem in that regard, but the other side clearly wasn't interested either.

I think I managed to stab England pretty badly because I complained something about not liking the game at all and how I feel depressed (I forget my exact words), which ended up causing him to sympathize with me. I still feel the same way though. I don't like the game at all, and I didn't like stabbing England, but I had to choose. But I don't like how I managed to do that though. After the stab I snarkily told England basically "hey whatever works" when he pointed out my crass behavior, but with my response I was mainly thinking of V, who's main goal seems to be to do whatever he can to manipulate you with every message he writes, and he doesn't shy away from being really nasty with the stuff he writes either. He's currently leading the league so he clearly is doing something right, right? And in this game he managed to get from the rather poor situation in 1901 to being the board leader in a few short years, manipulating Turkey from his incredibly powerful position into being a Russian vassal in the process. Be as it may, I hope I don't have to play with him again, two games is way more than enough.


Thanks so much for setting up the league, and congratulations to whoever manages to win it in the end!

I don’t usually respond to crap like this, but it was a gem. I sent him 3 messages in the entire game. THREE
They were all totally innocuous as well. However big bad V writes such nasty stuff. Stunning. Go back to your hedges.
