Mr Whirrett has made his move! Go Whirret, GO!!
This could be one VERY close thing right at the end of the month.

Dah...5 game days before I could attack you took fc. Why does it say recently moved under your potential award?

I dont know whether it's a bug, or whether it's intended, but it seems that if your main country has the tag 'recently moved' then any slaves of that country will adopt the tag as well.
Last time I looked, the tag had gone, because I recaptured with a group of countries where the main one no longer has 'recently moved'.
Whirrett, I salute your tenacity, you did almost everything right and made a devastating move on an unsuspecting opponent. Only your timing was off. Hats off to you for coming back for a second bite of the cherry as well, I was expecting it, and had to work damn hard to set things up so that the timing would push you (and the other competitors) out of the running.
Now I just have to wait to see if my re-capture timing kicked in at the right moment to scoop the prize.....

Hmm, had a mesg from W3C - it is intended that if you capture a country using a 'recently moved' one, then the captured country is also ineligible to win a prize.

Bah - I got a message about winning $21.. so I guess i was too late. I'd timed everything right except accounting for the damn game lag as well.... *sigh*

Hmm feels pretty good now it's happened, especially since I was fighting from a position of weakness, with barely 1 mil soldiers for most of the time, fending off multiple attackers, including a jeepboy who transferred into GR right on my doorstep, whilst simultaneously tweaking my scoring ability and hampering that of others to give myself the best possible shot at the top, plus defending my mainly-isolated slaves from aggressors.
All in all I feel like I have a deserved win under my belt and of course the notoriety of being the first transferring player to scoop the top prize
