Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

Much thanks to goldfinger for his time and efforts running this thing, I attempted to express that sentiment multiple times in PMs, but it simply cannot be said enough, hope you are enjoying some well deserved down time.

Re: Online Diplomacy Championships 2019

An NMR (no moves received by the phase deadline) is what triggers WFO.

It’s twice, could have been written:

“Any player who NMRs (or is saved from NMRing) twice will be replaced.”

Perhaps a “pat on the head” forum icon (but no points!) could be given out for F2F accomplishments that are not officially recognized, like for top board at the WDC, or even for topping a top board without winning the tournament...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

webDip’s intent is for the World Cup to be an anonymous tournament. You are part of the webDip team *and* you are working on the issue of anonymity. It astounds me that more has to be said on the matter, how you can’t see that how you’ve *publicly*!conducted yourself regarding anonymity in the tourn...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

there is still 1 vulnerability that makes breaking anon in non-gunboat games theoretically possible Is that 1 vulnerability the .json site you posted as a player in the World Cup final public press game? So, clearly this thread represents you, jmo, as the face of webDip’s altruistic efforts to make...

Re: October GhostRatings Published

Also keep in mind that it excludes PPSC which was the only scoring system on WebDip for a long time so comparing "peak rating" misses out on a lot of the stats. Things were much different back when I started playing on webDip. Even after WTA was added to PPSC, PPSC was the default option so it took...

500 points and a front page banner to anyone who wins anything.
Does this include first solo of the tournament? Best country (Russia, for example)? Highest placing webDip player?

All sound reasonable to me...

I don't think it was over at that point though. Guessing correctly in the attack on Berlin in Spring 1906 could have still won MM the game. Things almost always get pretty hairy in the Berlin/Munich fight at some point.

If we can give a special prize, I'd like to propose we give this to Roganjosh for his Hol H in Spring '05 ( in this game ), which trapped the Austrian army in Kiel. I think that this gave him the victory ! A champion's move ! :zultar: While that was a nice move it was ultimately inconsequential, th...
