No, the support hold order will not be executed on a unit that is ordered to move. A support hold order will only be executed on units that are ordered to support other units or on units that are ordered to hold
Yes, and support also works on fleets who are ordered to convoy.

Re: How to set a diplomacy game to a lower amount of players.

You can't, but you can play a variant that requires a lower amount of players. For instance, the Ancient Meditteranean variant only requires 5 players. If that is not what you want, I recommend to use our sister site, vDiplomacy. It has a huge number of variants, for varying numbers of players, that...

Re: Build Anywhere

If you are in a game, it gives information on the game on the top. For example: "1 days /phase (normal) Pot: 170 D - Spring, 2002, Retreats World Diplomacy IX, Rulebook press, Draw-Size Scoring" If you play any variant other than the standard, Classic variant, the variant name is listed here, too.

Re: The Live League

How many players can start around 12 pm EST? There should be a bunch of them, but a lot of options were not included in the survey. I meant 12 am EST, actually. Apparently you count 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 instead of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12. Confusing. But anyway. Since there we...

Re: The Live League

Thdfrance seems to have only included times at which he can play. It seems like there are plenty of times at which we could play together, bartogian. I can also play on Sundays.

2) Removing players immediately after the first NMR
That one has been implemented on our sister site vDiplomacy, so though I am not a developer, I know that it is at least possible.

Re: Feature request: Joinable live games

To add to this, it would be nice if players in live games who NMR in the first turn go into Civil Disorder and cause the phase to get extended. This is already the case on vDiplomacy for the first two turns on all games.

Re: The Live League

It does not seem like you can edit your answers? I just filled it in, but made a huge mistake regarding the times. I responded that I would be available at 7 pm and earlier, while in reality, I can start games at 7 am and earlier; from 12 pm to 7 am, to be precise. These times are not listed in the ...

@cspieker - is the reliability calculation the same on vDip?
I presume this question was meant for me? Yes, the calculation is the same on vDip.

Re: RR Calculation Wrong?

The probable reason for the cube in the formula is so that it is easier to discriminate between high but different Reliability Ratings. If there was no cube, all players who currently have a Reliability Rating of 99 or 100, would then all receive a Reliability Rating of 100. I agree with cspieker th...

Re: Diplomacy Etiquette – the Stab!!!

As I see it, when entering a Diplomacy game, one signs an invisible contract stating that they now enter the realm of lies and deceit in which anything goes. That being said, there are things that I, for ethical reasons, would not do in a game of Diplomacy, and these occur when the border between th...

Re: Online Diplomacy Championships 2019

It is still technically a no moves received if you do not enter in moves by the deadline. That will count as an NMR *facepalm* You can't NMR if it's Wait for Orders! Please clarify whether you're booted for not submitting orders (and thus not allowing the phase to process) once or twice. Your rules...

Re: Map-making.

I have written a variant creation guide for vDiplomacy that specifically addresses how one can make variants and get them implemented on that site:

No coding is needed.
