2012-12-12 02:48:51 - bottomsup: Gentlemen, good luck to you all.
2012-12-12 19:37:00 - DesalationReborn: Same. Polo, you got some insane positioning.
2012-12-16 18:07:10 - DesalationReborn: I actually can't say I saw a reason to break michael's bonus, but that's me.
2012-12-16 18:11:27 - DesalationReborn: If I had to pick the threat, it would be polo (no offense) just due to inherent board position with myself and bottoms in a close second.
2012-12-16 18:22:30 - DesalationReborn: Sometimes it's better to simply leave it be, because breaking one bonus without the rest always leaves some one on top without allies to balance them. And at least at the time michael wasn't even on my radar.
2012-12-16 19:34:55 - michaelawlor: yeah green i dont understand that move. do you not play big maps a lot? early fights gaurentee a loss
2012-12-16 19:36:48 - polopolo: deselation, you say in one breath that it isn't good to break up people's bonuses
2012-12-16 19:37:03 - polopolo: you are dead right, both players generally lose
2012-12-16 19:37:16 - polopolo: but then you suggest me as a target for the other players
2012-12-16 19:37:43 - polopolo: so, by your logic, that would leave both myself, and the person who attacks me in a losing position
2012-12-16 19:38:33 - polopolo: leaving you out on your own as the strongest player by far
2012-12-16 19:38:44 - polopolo: you have a whole continent almost
2012-12-16 19:39:13 - polopolo: i don't want to try and get anyone to attack anyone else
2012-12-16 19:39:36 - polopolo: i think saying this in chat is gamesmanship
2012-12-16 19:39:49 - polopolo: so, if i am the person in the best position
2012-12-16 19:40:01 - polopolo: come over and attack me to stop me
2012-12-16 19:40:14 - polopolo: don't try and suggest that other people should attack me
2012-12-16 19:40:24 - polopolo: in order to put yourself in a better position
2012-12-16 19:44:00 - polopolo: .
2012-12-16 19:53:14 - DesalationReborn: Well, by admitting myself and bottoms as close seconds, I am basically saying moving on you would put me on the up and up unless they took me out too. It's just, this early, without bonuses being handed out yet, I would not want to move on anyone.
2012-12-16 19:55:22 - DesalationReborn: That said, I admit I am currently looking at your options in China/Siberia starting position, which I admit I am very jealous of. None of us are that far ahead, and frankly, red, green, and blue are on the lowest tier.
2012-12-16 19:56:01 - DesalationReborn: So I would have thought they would be teaming up rather than breaking eachother down.
2012-12-16 19:59:53 - DesalationReborn: I just like chatting about strategy and moves I don't get, but I might just be yapping more than I should.
2012-12-18 19:07:21 - bottomsup: I'm just here to roll some dice.
2012-12-18 19:07:36 - bottomsup: And get my singular and plural nouns wrong.
2012-12-18 20:57:12 - DesalationReborn: You can have Western Europe if you want, blue. Trying to get my guys out of there.
2012-12-18 21:01:29 - DesalationReborn: Ok, now I'm probably head guy, polo, if just from China bonus. :p Unfortunately, I do not expect that to last.
2012-12-20 22:33:53 - DesalationReborn: As I predicted, so I rise, so I fall.
2012-12-21 01:54:29 - DesalationReborn: I think I should mention that polo will have an at least 25-man card turn-in and a full Africa bonus... minimum 55 men total as it stands on the end of my turn.
2012-12-21 02:03:12 - DesalationReborn: With the big hand-ins now, I doubt many people will be holding their bonuses.
