Declaration of Victory: Somebody That You Used To Know

As per “Treaty of Versailles”, I have achieved Victory.

“If an Emperor other than the Player is the some Signatory (besides the Player) to this Treaty, and is Signatory to to other Treaties, then that Emperor achieves victory.” might be dubious as all hell but it’s always worth attempting to scam, right?

Ugh, retroactive timestamping happened again.

I can vouch for this being actually posted after all edits were made and it having been bitten by the retroactive EE timestamp problem.

against As I’m afraid this declaration is based on a typo which has now been fixed.

against Nah.

There are elegant solutions to this but you didn’t find them; “to to” is an obvious typo that I would personally correct to ‘to no’, and as it’s not sensical I would assume that the some Signatory is an undefined keyword, which you are not.

Fwiw I think that this is a minimum three person scam.

“to to” might be a typo for “to no”, or “to two” or simply for “to”. So it’s not obvious that Josh’s correction is correct, if the text were proposed as written.

In this case, though, we know it’s not an error, it’s a deliberately malformed sentence. As such, I can’t conclude that the ungrammatical if-clause is satisfied.

I agree that “to to” cannot be corrected to “to no” because it could also mean “to two”

Good thing you can’t SK a DoV.

Forgot again that I had signed Civil Service when it enacted.
