Anyone know why turns are going max duration even after all countries are finalized?

How would you know if other players have finalized? Sometimes people lie in this game...

We’re all sitting in the same room just waiting for something to happen. It’s easier than flipping the board all the time. Thanks for the lying insight. Didn’t know that...

If everyone had truly finalized...then they would process in about 5 minutes. Someone had to be wrong.

That. Or the game is fixed deadlines only.

I probably made the mistake of having fixed deadlines only. Any way to fix that after I’ve started the game?

I did not mean to be insulting... I just was not picturing a situation where everybody was in the same room and had the ability to verify that others' orders were truly finalized....

"Fixed Deadlines": If the game has fixed deadlines, do players even have the option to "finalize" orders within the game menus? Changing game settings once the game has started requires a mod...

Assuming the game in question is ATG19 it’s not fixed deadlines. It would say so in the game description, if it were. The only explanation that is likely is an individual error in finalisation. Only a mod could tell.

That’s what I thought was weird too; we do have the option to finalize. *shoulder shrug*

It's probably human error. When you change an order it unfinalizes - could that be it?
