Not forever, just right now.

By the way, just curious: Have you ever been the top ranked Standard/Pure Diplomacy player? Perhaps you should set a goal to avoid the 12-hour build anywhere, stuff happens, chaos games and improve your diplomacy game play?e.

Sure, of course i have back in the day. I'm only not today here because i spent my last while climbing new mountains and spent most of the time i did spend here either in tournaments or occasionally playing these types of variants that are only offered here. In the mean time I'd also been the top 'standard/pure diplomacy' player over at WebDip for the past year. We previously made that the lesser category here do i didn't overly obsess over it, but i seem to still be doing ok with it given my part-time attention to it so hey .. yay me.

My priority these past couple years has been working through a Diplomacy bucket list i set out back in 2012. It included topping this site (done), topping another site (done), topping another variant (done, hence all the Build Anywhere games), take over a 1 SC position and go on to solo (done), and win a tournament (done). Being the first to be #1 on both sites simultantiously wasn't originally on the list, so bonus points. Couple left over items on that list but probably due for updating soon. By all means, continue pulling out creative frames in attempt to crop away my eclectic awesomeness.

Grab a jacket Conq, it gets chilly in my shadow.

If I remember right, he was a cop. On a stakeout of some sort in the back of a van. His buddies poked some holes in the pee bottle.

@gsmx, I very much enjoy having this debate with you while I'm ranked first, and you're ranked second. I'm sure my reign will be short, so I have to enjoy this discussion while I can.
