threetwoone submitted their moves before the deadline.

heuristically alone has not submitted their moves, and the hard deadline has passed. This means that a third party will submit their moves for them. I'm in kind-of a rush, so can't sort this out until this evening. If you are interested in submitting h_a's moves, I'm likely to ask in this thread later tonight.

heuristically_alone's move has been accepted.

In future, once the hard deadline has passed, the player or any other user not playing may submit that player's move. Moves by known alt accounts and obviously suicidal moves will be ignored.

Not that it would change Faubi's fate (I think, but I'd be open to being wrong) but given two moves into the same space should means no moves, so Heury's 4 won't be where Faubi hoped to be, either… right?

(First glance at this, maybe I'm missing something about this, or even something else entirely.)

Either way, ouch. Didn't expect it to be so quick!

Hrm, good question. My inclination is that, given that faubi's 1 died prior to the "move" phase being carried out, heury's 4 was the only piece that tried to move into that space, so the move was successful... but as emlightened is the moderator of the game, the final decision should be up to her.

I was sleepy at the time, I hadn't considered the move was already moot (I fancied that the mooted move had caused the demise, which is clearly wrong given the precedence of actions). I withdraw my query, unless Heury wants to pick up on it.

And now copypasta the message I nearly sent last night but ran out of battery just before completing (and completing it). Hopefully my addled and hurried state at the time hasn't left what I did looking stupid!

Regardless, and only to change if things get revised drastically, my moves are:
Spoiler:
1: Left-Up
2: Left-Down
3: Attack Up
4: Attack Right-Down
5: n/a
W: Up (yeah, I know I just came from there!)

Thanks patzer!

And yep, the outcome of the board where faubi was is correct. I think a similar situation has happened before which involved a grab instead of a death in the upper-left of the board - maybe somewhere near turn 11?

Soft Deadline is 23:59 UTC on the 7th December.
Hard Deadline is 23:59 UTC on the 10th December.

threetwoone has submitted their move by DM

heuristically_alone did not submit their move before the deadline, so now anyone not currently playing (including faubi) may play their move for them.

Curious to see what I submitted, I find I need to note the following typo (sleep-deprived) errors corrected. Hopefully acceptable/compatible with what you're already doing.

All but one should be my obvious and uncontroversial intent. That other could have been ambiguous, but I'm not aware of any conflict with either interpretation.

No deaths.
There must be something in the air, as the pieces at the bottom of the board are trying to attack it. Successfully too! Three entire air have died.

I should have checked my correction for potential corrections. In fact, had I left it like I wrote it, you would likely have done what I meant with one piece. :P Never mind!

Spoiler:
1) Grab Up
2) Move Left-Up
3) Grab Left-Up
4) Attack Right-Up (though H1 might be expecting to counter my #1 directly, after a #3 Grab-Up, so this probably won't work for the wrong reasons!)
5) :|
W) Move Up

…checked it thrice, this time.

Given that multiple people haven't submitted yet, and Christmas/New Year are busy for a lot of people, I'm extending the deadline by 48 hours. (I normally set it for seven days, and didn't extend it for the holidays.)

If you think this is unfair/me taking advantage of me being the mod, please say so.

threetwoone has asked for a replacement

Anyone not currently playing is eligible to take over. If you want to take over but have looked at the moves for this turn, please say as much and you may replace them after the current turn, with someone else taking this turn for them.
