Re: Question about conceding

...it might cancel, it might give you the win, or it might crash. Link me if you find out. Thanks jmo, here's what I found out from the five games that were left by my opponent: 1. One game was left with no votes cast, the game did *not* immediately end with me winning, but when the next phase proc...

Re: Question about conceding

You don’t win immediately, another phase needs to go through first... I didn’t want the game canceled, but I was getting crushed so I didn’t want the win either, so I just conceded before he officially left since I don’t know the exact specifics of how it works...

Question about conceding

If I concede in 1v1 after my opponent has left, will the game simply cancel?

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Sorry for this brief aside... FWIW - I handled that situation extremely poorly, to say the least, and I have many regrets. I stand 100% behind my assessment of the situation, but not my personal behavior, so I fully accept goldie's decision. I have not, am not, and will not discourage anyone from pl...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

There's a thing about the ranking in HoF where I believe it glitches out when you have less than 100 GR? For example, this is what it currently says for me; You are ranked #25233 out of 25232 players with an overall GR of over 100. I wonder if this relates to how my HoF ranking says I’m one less th...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

I’m personally content just being the top classic press guy as I’m a traditionalist like that, but I am ‘Overall’ top guy at PlayDip if you feel that distinction is more credible for you. 8-) It’s not about actual rankings or credible distinctions, it’s about making false claims... Any chance you’r...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Overall - you mean the novelty non-FP games? I hear those are super neat. TheGhostMaker developed Ghost Ratings well before you were even a member here (2011 at the latest, you joined in 2017), it has historically been the “unofficial” rating system at webDip since its inception, and it is now inte...

Thanks Jmo. Lasted about a week where I got to say I was once again #1 on both PlayDip and WebDip before these "recalculations" kicked in.

When were you last #1 in overall GR? Nikola’s been #1 for most of 2020, I thought you were #1 in one of the GR subcategories...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

First off, and again, that’s a really impressive upgrade you all pulled off, takes a ton of dedication, extremely well done! Very minor variance that I only bring up because I’m confident you want to know of such things, when I click on either Overall Peak Ghost Rating link on the Hall of Fame page,...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

You guys are relentless, extremely impressive and much appreciated, thanks to all involved!

Yonni, looks like the “Overall Peak Ghost Rating” link in the HoF should maybe be “Current Ghost Rating” as my current is listed there rather than peak?

Re: All Diplomacy Scoring Stinks

What I think is interesting is that most of the models I've ever seen proposed have not accounted for one of the biggest skill based factors in a game. Country. That is an excellent point jmo, I had never thought about that... I have never won a classic game as Italy, for example. Also, I was once ...

Why is everyone else so calm about this super critical issue? Where’s your passion?! FTR - All issues are super critical! 😉 It’s okay. Just take your ball. Slam it into your mitt. Make your pitch.

Its possible I'm stretching everyone's patience here, but - traveling again (happier occasion), back Sunday. Could totally start tomorrow if that's the group preference, but would vote Sunday if no one has a strong view.
Sunday is great by me, no rush here.
