Re: Fleets Supporting Fleets

Just a slight gloss on Prince William: fleets can support units in a bordering body of water or a province ON THE SAME COASTLINE.

A fleet in Rome, for example, cannot support a fleet in Venice, even though Venice does border and is on a coastline.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

For those teams who have been accepted, make sure your members also register via the on-site tool on the tournaments page. Forgive me, but I don't see this "on-site tool on the tournaments page." I have been to the tournaments page, seen my team listed for the 2020 World Cup, but can't see anything...

Re: Best Piece of Diplomacy Advice

1. Good players don't lie as much as this game has a reputation for. You must earn a reputation as someone who tells the truth 90% of the time, so you will be believed the other 10%. 2. Offer help at least as often as you ask for it. 3. Guess other's next moves by what their interests are, not what ...

GR3 just ended with a 4-way Draw among England, France, Turkey and Russia (me). Very challenging game.

Re: Taking over for missing player and not being able to retreat a unit.

You’re sure there was an empty non-standoffed province for the unit to retreat to?

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

So to the collective opinion in here is a bad thing to reach the end and forfeit the solo respecting the co-player who helped you to this point.
Couldn't have said it better myself. You're not "respecting" anyone by "letting" them have a Draw when you could Solo. You're "patronizing" them.

Game 3 is missing Laszlo_L, and bo_sox (who said he was willing to pass, but leaves us short unless someone wants to join).

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Prince: Once again, we are not talking about the same thing. There is nothing wrong with settling for a Draw, if winning is impossible and a Draw is the best result based on how the game plays out. We are talking about making a Draw your ultimate goal, even forgoing the chance to solo just to mainta...

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Rogan, your last paragraph is right on. In the game in question, the 2-way alliance was formed early on, was bragged about in press (so no question it existed early on), and both had chances to stab the other when down to 3 but refused. One had a chance to grab the 18th centre but refused. It was a ...

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Let me put it this way. If we're playing chess and I get tired and purposely let you take my queen, is that respectful? I think all players doing their best to win is the only legitimate way to play any game or sport.

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Yeah, we're getting pretty far from the topic here. The Draw participants in the game in question were not newbies: one was "Experienced", the other a "Member." The issue isn't new players "hoping" for a Draw as a reasonable result. The issue is players "trying" for a Draw as their goal in the game.

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

You'll have to give us instructions on exactly how to set up the games. Will you be setting them up as private games and sending us a passcode? Is it the responsibility of someone in the game to do so?

Re: Fantasy Premier League

I looked at it and it looks like it requires quite a bit of week to week management, not just pick 'em and wait to the end of the season. Not sure I have time for that.

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

I'll give this a try. I'm a newer player, but I guess I've got a reasonable GR. I'm 138th place in the August Classic rankings. So I guess that makes it so far: G1 1. MadMarx - 4.5 (GR = 350.189) 2. Yonni - 5 3. ben9990 - 10 (message on Discord to start) 4. ATC - 13.5 (GR = 255.26) 5. swordsman3003 ...
