If you want to leave the game fine, quit. Otherwise MAN UP and play out the game.
"Man Up" means accepting reality.
Since I was to "Man Up", the Capt. has gained planets, not lose planet as promised.
There are new ending conditions, the Capt. more than meets them. Let's end the game and we will see you in future games. Well played.

I think what to apply for the second or third place to me isn't real. I suggest to finish game and to congratulate on supergame of the winner.

I for game end.

I believe I voted earlier, so I will not vote again. I confirm my vote for ending the game.

Look, the issue I had with ending the game as previously proposed was the concept of establishing some kind of "infered" final standings not based on the actual game's final standings.

Now if you want to say "STOP" in x-turns and the standings are the standings then fine but it is not good gamemenship making up final standings.

How about... The game ends and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place goes to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place race.... easy. No made up final standings. That I could accept.

Hi Dano Killer

Bird did rise to second as predicted and they have still territory to conquer.

Since Crystal left the game the issue about crystal ending 3rd or 4th no longer exsist. I was just predicting crystal to end 3rd. Since they will be the most difficult for me to kill compared to robot and collonies.

Congratulation on your final position.

The game isn't over and my orignal statements remain valid. If this game continues there is no way to guarentee final standings. I have no problem letting the game run until turn 100 because I like the challenge.

Now that we're finally enagegd I have a chance to add ships. The ships in my que are top of the line so as they come on line things will get more interesting so why end the game now? I think it was boring BEFORE you finally enagegd us so why end now when the fun is just starting?

I can't speak for the Robots but I'm sure he's having fun too but ask him if he wants to end this and I'll consider going along with his decison.

Hi Danokiller

Let me bring your attention to what Tim wrote.

I take the above as if Tim want the game to end.

If the final standings are based on the actual score on the final turn I support ending the game.

Does turn 70 sound good? It's a nice round number.

Good game and congrats.

Greetings Dano Killer

In case our greate host will have to use the backup do we want to replay the last turns?

After all nothing happened that would change the result in the end.

If you agree please be so kind to let Havok know that it will be ok to end the game.
Regards,

Captain Blood

Hi Bitmask

The game was supposed to end at turn 70 anyway.

We submitted turns for the last turn just before the AT went down.

So if it can run that turn it will be ok - if the turn is lost it will be ok as well.

Hi Havok/Bitmask

Even with the Auto troll restored witout loose of data we would like this game to end. Since no one is agaist ending this game any longer with current standings. Thanks.

Two players submitted turns, but that is probaly because they risk getting dropped or might loose position in case the game runs witout there turn.
Regards,

Captain Blood
