There has been some discussion on how rare 2-way draws are

See 131940. DESPACITO

2-way draws are rare because one player or the other can usually solo

England and France are in a 2-way draw where either one of them could have had a solo (at one point or another)

I don't know if that counts as cheating or not, but I thought meta-gaming is not allowed.

The msg below explains why France is turning down his opportunity to solo. The msg contains several pretty explicit references to meta-gaming.

The rules should be clear about what meta-gaming is, and what's allowed and what isn't.

(Message redacted).

Neither cheating nor metagaming. The rule is to go INTO the game seeking the best result...but once you are in there...changing your mind to carebear draw monger...is totally allowed. Even going into a game trying to draw is allowed...as long as you don't go into the game intentionally to draw with "x" player

Sorry man. Not cheating...not against the rules...people just play differently

I'm kinda shocked that posting private messages in the forum from an active game isn't being frowned upon. Is that really ok?

What a lovely message from France and how much would we all like to find an ally like that.

Bet he didn't expect his honourable words plastered over the forum though.....

Never fear France, we've all got a soft, squidgy spot for you now. You've made the world a more hopeful place. :D

I did exactly the same thing in my last game. And gave almost word for word the same reasons to the disgrunts.

No it isn’t. You are right, posting messages from an active game (as this was when posted) is out of order. Message has been redacted accordingly.

Yes, posting the message was ill-considered. But as Asu says, there is no metagaming here. There was no decision to go from a 2-way draw from the outset. It was an in-game decision, so a non-issue. I’ve removed the offending message (the posting of which WAS a breach of the site rules. Now we can all move on from this red herring.
