Re: Homepage improvement...

Looks good. If the point is to tease new players, you could show a random game on the right if the player currently is not in a game.

That unit will then enter C. You just discovered the 'unwanted support' trick.

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

Ironically, I just discovered the bots and working my way through the powers to win with each. I just started with Austria, but this last game, I was attacked by Italy, Russia, Turkey AND GERMANY! in Spring 1901. In fact, the thing that saved my bacon was that Germany and Italy were fighting each o...

Re: You are not reliable enough to join this game

It is not a bug. Apparently your friend has set a minimum Reliability Rating requirement to join the game when he created it. You can improve your Reliability Rating by reliably entering orders in games. Out of curiosity: Is the game password protected? In order to not break the Metagaming rule, it ...

Re: A rant about Reliability Rating

It has always been the case that if you went into Civil Disorder but you go to the page of the game you were playing before anyone takes over, you are back in the game.

Re: Advanced Maneuvers

Good article, as usual, and nice seeing guest posts. If anybody has any additional fringe maneuvers to add that i've overlooked, i'd absolutely love to hear about them. Would make my day to hear about a new tactic! I think the 'defend by moving' tactic could have been added to part 2, about complex ...

Re: Variant rules game for players who like co-operation

I think this variant from vDiplomacy suits this idea really well. It would support five two-player teams.

Re: Newb Questions

It has to move from Red Sea to Egypt and then to Mediterranean Sea on the following turn, similar to how you have to move through Constantinople first if you want to move between Black Sea and Aegean Sea.

The word you are looking for is "amphibious (terrain)".

You can only do so during game creation. Select None under Game Messaging.

Re: When to Solo?

In your specific example, cdngooner, there is no risk involved. If you try to go for a solo, the others will probably try to pressure you into accepting a draw, not to defeat you.

Re: Newbies first game - 1 player required

It sounds like it would be a good idea for your group to play one of the variants over on vDiplomacy, for instance Anarchy in the UK.

I hope you will enjoy playing Diplomacy. :)

Once they follow the link with the gameID, the only way for them to join is to enter the invite code in the appropiate box.
Which they can find in the bottom right if they are logged in.

Mercy, the player will join the game without clicking Join? Does this happen automatically?

Re: CD, and NMRs in private anonymous game

When a player fails to enter orders, the game gets extended and the player who missed an order will lose 1 excused missed turn. If the player already has 0 unexcused missed turns, the game still gets extended, but the player gets kicked out of the game (it will say 'Left'). When a player is kicked o...
