Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

*no rule violations. In short, by being on the site at all times and logging when he received messages from each person. Even with current anonymity settings, that can allow educated guesses over the course of weeks. Especially when other games have pauses and/or start finishing up. I thought it wa...

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

Also, do we have any insight into how chipperock broke the anonymity of the tournament? That was highly suspicious and we wouldn't want that to happen again. Of course, with South being out, perhaps it is less of an issue. I've told the mods and goldfinger exactly how I did it and we all seem to ag...

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

I will admit, if we had 2 way drawn one of our games we would be in but that should never have been needed when we dominatingly finished with 16 & 14 SCs in two 3 way draws. Also, the points system should honestly give much more of a points advantage TBH for if you were to 3 way draw with 17 SCs ve...

Not only that, my GR is pretty good, it's not on the VillageIdiot level but it indicates that if I played with you I wouldn't do too bad.
Your rhetoric in this thread strongly suggests otherwise.
Do I have to play several games against VI just to get you to change your opinion?

ChippeRock is in that group? Shame! Shame!! Being in a tough group versus a weak ass group like yours? I agree. What a fun nonsensical statement from the weakest member of a team that’s not in the finals from the only group without a single solo. Other then that, awesome burn! Let me remind you tha...

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

The solos and the point distribution indicate that Groups A & B had 3 & 4 competitive teams (respectively) while Group C had 6 teams that were competitive! I mean our group got screwed in that it only sent 2 teams to the Finals just because there weren't a couple of super dominant teams who soloed. ...

Hey Italy, you’re holding up the tournament.
Stop your bitching, there's still an opportunity to get a solo or a 3 way draw. Not everyone has the benefit of a solo nor does everyone have the benefit of being able to not worry about the standings.

Re: Can You Support An Attack On Your Own Unit?

Yeah, you can't self-dislodge, but supporting your own attack on a province you already occupy can be a useful tactic. So just because it won't work doesn't mean it's not useful! Apparently playing 238 games and being ranked 126th on this site by GR doesn't make you exempt from being taught how to ...

My bad, I meant to say the following: For example, let's say you have French army in Clyde, a French army in Liverpool, and a English fleet in Edinburgh. And let's also assume there are no adjacent units to the listed units. Can France successfully support England into Clyde from Edinburgh using Liv...

Can You Support An Attack On Your Own Unit?

For example, let's say you have French army in Edinburgh, a French army in Edinburgh, and a English fleet in Clyde. And let's also assume there are no adjacent units to the listed units.

Can France successfully support England into Edinburgh from Clyde? Or does it bounce?

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Still looking for people (not already in the tournament) who are interested in subbing. I can offer points and cookies as incentives, though no promises on the quality of the latter. Don't want your nasty cookies but I will sub if there are points involved. If your looking for a half decent GB play...

Re: Why are Some User's Points in Play Negative?

1) Be eliminated in a game that has not yet finished (let's say you bet 10 points) 2) Go back up to 100 points because of webDip communism 3) Spend all those 100 points on ongoing games 4) Site things you have 100 points - 110 points in play 5) ??? 6) Profit Okay, that makes sense.

Why are Some User's Points in Play Negative?

So my understanding of the points system is as follows: Available points are the amount of points currently not being used in non-anonymous and anonymous games. This number doesn't change no matter who's view it. Points in play is the amount of points currently being played in non-anonymous and anon...
