Actually its only part of an alliance, Oddman is allied with Dano I believe and only happens to be allied with Germany. We have Irsh, Dano's laptop, Falador and Jodokus's laptop.

Their game can only exist to be won.
Then so be it who else can see it done.

Nah... we all know whitout saying who are allied to whom, and why and why next few sessions are important, and I dont want to get any edge on or over anything simply becouse two of my last war's enemies are away.

I am allied to Germany, indeed. And we, in turn, are allied to Komgolia, too.

yea, for fairness sake, its not nice that one entire alliance is away/subbed/ghosted for one session.


And I very much appreciate this sentiment.

It's not like there's going to be a war next session, not with so much IC to build.

Also we've had plenty of times where even with 2 or 3 players gone we kept going. Right now even if we suppose three people can't make it that's still well below the 50% threshold Yoshi and Dano previously used.

Their game can only exist to be won.

Its seems to be normal practice in Hoi2 games that if any major is missing, the session is postponed. I also adjoin jodokus and KoM and IMO we should postpone if both Catalonia and Germany are away

Boo! But whatever happened to "the game must go on" Sad

It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the history of pain.
If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the promise of a better world,
because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past.

You're the GM Dano! You can make it so! If they're absolutely afraid of getting attacked then simply let them be AI'ed or Ghosted (by a human who can pick new techs and so on).

Observation: Summer time ends in the US this week. If we postpone, we can avoid the usual synchronisation problems. Just saying. Smile

Haven't managed to find a sub so far; can I get a GM ruling ASAP? Lets me know whether I should pull all the stops.

Enough people are not here combined with enough wanting to postpone it.
No Session on Nov 3rd.

My laptop (of infamous inability to run v2 without horrible lag) finally bit the dust for good. This means no subbing/cooping from me in future.

Me and Jodokus are going to be away on December 8th and given the fact that we are at war and that there is no subs I request postponing.
