There are still two outstanding submissions. I'm going to start creating the newest circle assuming the two remaining players use their default actions. I'll still accept their submissions if they manage to get them to me before the circle goes up.

Be aware: BeefontheBone and The Stew Boy each have one enemy remaining. Monkey and Pinnacle each have one teammate remaining. Monkey and Pinnacle are no longer enemies.

quote:
Phase 5 - Closing the Circle
After players have been eliminated, the following rules will be enforced in order to determine whether or not the circle will close.

1. If breaks in the circle result in at least one unbroken chain of exactly three players (a triplet), all players not currently in such a triplet will be eliminated. The circle will close inward and connections will be reformed, resulting in some players having new teammates and enemies.
1a. If there is exactly one triplet, the center of the triplet (who has two teammates and zero enemies) is the winner of the game.
2. If there are any players with zero teammates, they are eliminated. The circle does not close after this step.
3. If there are any unbroken chains of exactly two players (a doublet), all players in doublets gain 5HP. The circle closes inward and connections are reformed.


In short, connections are reformed primarily after a doublet is created. Connections are also reformed when there are multiple triplets after a round, which is a much more unlikely scenario.

Hey, you attacked me on Round 3 also, so don't complain :)

(I happened to miss the round 3 deadline. The default orders were okay in this instance, but I've submitted orders for round 4 and don't plan on missing another deadline, especially as the game gets more strict in later rounds.)

Because this is coming up so frequently, I've decided to change my stance on the issue of changing orders. It is now acceptable to change your orders up until the deadline. My apologies to those who I did not allow the ability to change in previous rounds.

Sorry about that kie, but I was getting low on health and if you died I'd get +5 health. Looks like I needed it too.

Things are getting downright hairy now, especially since I'm one of the people with the fewest HP now.

I've tried my hand at a bit of diplomacy this round - hopefully all will go according to plan and I'll live. :)

(I have not yet submitted my actions, as I am waiting for a response.)

RoboBob, is it possible to cancel previous actions and send in new ones? Because for the last two rounds, I've sent in actions, only to have someone PM me with a strategy afterwards.

Yes, I'm allowing this now. See my post directly before the Round 4 orders.

I think it would be more consistent to have Monkey continue to make default moves than to bow out. Or, alternatively, allow one of the players who has already been killed to take over Monkey's spot in the interest of keeping the game going. But removing Monkey completely is too unusual to really be fair at this point in the game. For example, removing him and not closing the circle puts Pinnacle (who currently has the most health) at severe risk as his other teammate is very weak. Removing Monkey and closing the circle benefits Pinnacle by giving him a stronger ally (and in fact that ally used to be an enemy, so the dynamics on that side of the board change drastically).

I'll let Someone Else take over for Monkey.

If anybody has submitted actions against Monkey, I'll assume they're for Someone Else.

Monkey has not yet submitted his actions for Round 6.

I don't have reliable Internet access right now either (I've just got back to uni), so I'm delegating my move to stigant. I should get it back in time to continue with the game, though.

I decline. Do your best to make a move, settle for the default move, or delegate to someone not in the game.
