    I decided to make this thread for people playing GMR games. In this thread, you can post suddent or planified absences or simply post something that other people need to know but not in relation with any games. Some players play multiple games and it can be annoying to advertise in each thread.

    Sorry to everyone in the games I am in. I should of given a heads up and there is no excuse. I didnt use vacation mode because the AI is so wacky.

    I will be gone Aug. 17th to the 24th. I am going to use vacation mode for that. It should be my last trip of the summer and I am sorry for joining games when I am gone so often.

    It is pretty much impossible to be in a game where you cant be away for a day or 2. They last several months after all. Not everyone is lucky to have wifi wherever they go.

    Maybe. I'll let my parents handle that. For now, I'll be satisfied when I get back to college!

    Looking for a sub / replacement for two games. New Weird Order left both unexpectedly.

    The Big Gamble (Huge game, 12 players), sub turn 30, maybe it's even less.

    Sail the Seven Seas (forum thread is called Onan's Naval Game), sub turn 60, off the top of my head. A reliable player for each / both would be appreciated!

    There's some small chance this was accidental...but I seem to remember him saying something about his schedule changing, and maybe he couldn't keep up.

    I'm in a couple of games with NWO and he left all of them without a word. Dont know the reason but there are a lot of subbing to do.

    Edit: I got to be busy in killing mode:D

    I thought I wanted to join quick speed games first, but since LostKight posted in that sticky thread, I will go ahead to play them all:crazyeye:

    @LostKnight: could you please help me contact the host of every game to negotiate a 24 hour turn timer if there is one? Thank you. I need some time to adjust the pace of sudden increased games :lol:
