16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: You do understand there's nothing balanced about this game.
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: If three countries want to go up against one in this game, it's over.
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: How over? Moderately or severely?
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: And a standard 6 player variant of Diplomacy calls for a neutral Italy anyways.
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: yeah that means you fail at diplomacy though you now. Your personal failure does not mean the game is in balanced.

The game is balanced on the board initially. Thats why russia starts with 4 Scs. and all scs are located at certain places.
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: There is a new game ...

Join and Play a NORMAL Game
16 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: It is well known that standard neutral italy 6 variant, gives advantage to France and Austria, and puts all others in disadvantage.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Well it wasn't known to me, but makes sense. (Figures as that's from Wikipedia.)
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Besides if I wanted to play a watered down 6 variant game, I would go and start a 6 variant game. This is not what we wanted sirrah.

Under these conditions you give me no option but to call for a crusade against France.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Not really. Turkey and Russia are always predisposed to win the game when there's no private messagine. It becomes more like risk than it is diplomacy.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Well that's good news for the noob over here!
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: (me)
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: We are messaging here.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: gameID=182043
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Austria, I'd be fine not attacking you if you didn't attack me this turn. If that's how that works. I'll stay put.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: and it is not true that Turkey and Russia are more predisposed, "statistically" and on 7 variant.

On 6 variants there is an overwhelming chance due to the starting advantage of France and Austria.
16 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Global messaging only allows for mob attacks, nothing really clever.
16 Aug 16 UTC Austria. I am ready to cooperate against Turkey...
16 Aug 16 UTC Turkey, your kindness will be remembered.
16 Aug 16 UTC I've seen Austria and France go nuts, only because everyone around them chooses not to attack them, or let's them grab way to many SC's off the bat. If you're in my shoes right now, I'm not looking like I'll grow out of proportion.
16 Aug 16 UTC We'll see by me maneuvers whether my kindness shall be worth remembering, next turn.
16 Aug 16 UTC CANCEL AND JOIN A NEW GAME !!

Whats wrong with you ( England Austria Turkey ) ?
16 Aug 16 UTC Exactly...
16 Aug 16 UTC *England Austria
16 Aug 16 UTC Lol, they want to play. I don't blame them.
16 Aug 16 UTC I'll put a cancel vote up; sadly though. Just getting into it! I'll play this like a normal game until it happens, good practice.
16 Aug 16 UTC They are after an easy victory through a disorientated game.
16 Aug 16 UTC ENGLAND - AUSTRIA??
16 Aug 16 UTC Russia France Turkey alli ?

Make them down and then DRAW
16 Aug 16 UTC Seems like we have a new enemy germany
16 Aug 16 UTC Agree
16 Aug 16 UTC Then I name: Crusade against infidel Austrians!
16 Aug 16 UTC ehm I meant Turkey, so that we draw. xD
16 Aug 16 UTC I name the Inuits to be the scourge of the Universe.
16 Aug 16 UTC DRAW TURKEY
16 Aug 16 UTC Turkey push that button that says draw and we all love you again :D
16 Aug 16 UTC Lol, what does Alaska have to do with this?
16 Aug 16 UTC oh he did
16 Aug 16 UTC Everything. I need the seals alive and unspoiled.
16 Aug 16 UTC Turkish racism known to demand no logic.
16 Aug 16 UTC You guys kind of suck. I don't need a perfect game, I just want to play.
16 Aug 16 UTC Try playing diplomacy as one person on Jdip. You always win.
16 Aug 16 UTC :P
16 Aug 16 UTC Can we start a new game?
16 Aug 16 UTC Can we start a new game?

16 Aug 16 UTC Unlike risk, diplomacy was created to be played with 7 not more, not less. I personally cannot enjoy a victory if a person is absent or even missed a turn...
16 Aug 16 UTC Perhaps private messages should be enabled on the next one, if that's possible.
16 Aug 16 UTC It's ancient, but I'm playing whether everyone shows up or not.
16 Aug 16 UTC Oh, they are on that Med. one.
