This is crazy, JediJoe is talking about me in our game together. Painting me as the big bad wolf when he has done the majority of attacking.
Its a World 2.1 game. Game Game 11339713
Game started to stagnate with stacking only around round 30. I asked for people to play and JediJoe replied that this was the way it went down in Round Limit 100 games, and that I could expect it to stand still for another 50 turns before everyone wold start attacking.
So one player, blue, the smallest on the board started moving and I canceled my truce in NA with JediJoe. I had SA and all of NA except Canada. He had Canada (obviously), Russia and Europe.
I had expected JediJoe to put up a fight since he had accumulated at least 100 more troops but he left it all unprotected and moved back to fort his Europe + Russia bonus, forting with about 180 in Iceland.
I happily took NA (for free!) and forted NA with 220 against his Europe and some other smaller stack against Russia.
Next time I looked at the game I find he had attacked through my 220 stack all the way through to SA puncturing all my bonuses. He must have had some great dice. But I was also a bit surprised after his speech about saving troops for the grand finale.
I got pissed and took back all up to Greenland that he had forted with about 200 and put up almost all my remaining troops (140+140) on Nunavut and Lower Canada, the two territories next to Greenland, and I said:
2012-08-12 22:31:58 - paulk: oh how sweet
2012-08-13 09:46:52 - paulk: so you decided to waste your troops on me, double sweet.
2012-08-13 09:48:14 - paulk: and everyone else is just standing by, great game... perfect for suiciding.
This was apparently trigger enough for JediJoe to go cry everywhere, on our game forum, on another games forum we had together and of course here. I didnt even think it was worth seriously commenting on really since he obviously was making a whining fool out of himself.
I even commented on his comments
2012-08-14 01:01:15 - paulk: lol, I actually didnt spend any troops on nothing, pink was the one that decided to barge through my 230 troops and after that my chances of winning got pretty slim.
2012-08-14 01:04:03 - paulk: wouldnt surprise me if he barged through the remaining 280 troops and called me the suicider.
Then JediJoe did just that, went through one of the 140 stacks.
Up to this point I had not retaliated at all, I had merely commented that this game was perfect for suiciding and that apparently was enough to get JediJoe to pee his pantalones.
I now went full out with what I had and took Europe from him and he took NA and I already had lost SA, we kind of switched places. I got one turn with a full Europe + Russia bonus and I attacked NA with it, wasting about 130 troops on it but at this point it was personal.
So yes, I "suicided" my last troops on JediJoe after he repeatedly had screwed both me and him out of the game wasting about 400 of my troops.
On top of that he calls me the suicider.
You, dear reader, make your own conclusions.
BTW, I am not a suicider. I like to play hard and I hate stacking games. I will try to get people to react by commenting in the game forum but I would like to say I am a pretty good player. I have a 44% winning rate, most of them on 6-8 player World 2.1 games. Compare that to JediJoe's 26% winning rate...
