Re: Why the hell has no-one joined my game?

To follow that up, I don't know if I've ever just created a game and waited for people to join in the almost 10 years I've been here. Posting to the forum has always been far more successful way to get a quality game.

Re: Full press non-anon

It's like VI has been terrorizing press games here for so long that everybody forgot how awful it is to play with MM.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

I think the scoring format is just fine. It's on the players to play more.competitively. I'm not sure how to increase the prestige of the tournament but flairs and trophies could help.

What else would you want a player to do?
Do better. Also not dragging out a game in way that everyone could but shouldn't do. Nobody is asking for you or the mods to get involved but sharpening our pitchforks is fair game.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

First off, thanks Goldy for running the tournament. I know they take a lot of effort. I'd be interested to hear from other people but I'm guessing that with the addition of other tournaments, game modes, and whatnot people don't have the time commitment for 7 games that often overlap. Some of the to...

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

Did any of the old "masters" have that strict of a entry requirement? I don't remember the last one being exceptionally strong. When you let this many people in, the experience is varied.

Where the spring flair? Pretty vanilla all around except for England I guess. I hope the fall brings some dramatics at least.

Is it just me or has communication been completely anemic in this tournament? People hardly talking, taking days to respond, short messages, it's just been degrading as the games go on.
Seems to have worked out well for you. Congrats on the solo.

Re: Full press non-anon

Can't join unfortunately because the last round of the masters just started but I'll definitely follow. Should be a fun one.

Funny that you're only on chapter 11 after all these years. Looks like I played in chapter 10... over 3 years ago

Re: The Juggernaut Bogeyman?

No, I'm serious. It requires good communication but it's nigh unstoppable when you get it going. Any alliance with great communication can seem 'unstoppable' but I don't see how - all things being equal - an IT alliance is stronger than the vast majority of other alliances. Both of them have an awk...

Muting is a tool.
It is a poor diplomat who blames his tool or cannot find use cases.
It's a bad tool though that doesn't work well.

As well as "public press," it's sometimes referred to as "Wilson Diplomacy"
