Re: Taking over a disorder

Another factor to consider: I have seen many a player abandon games when they have a losing position, possibly (or maybe 'likely'??) because they don't want to take the GR rating loss. I've seen this with otherwise very reliable and highly ranked players as well. If BOTH the player who starter AND ...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

I would never ever stab someone who treats me with honesty and respect. And if someone does lie to me or stab me, I will not stab back if they apologize and make the repatriations that I request. This is a game of honor and diplomacy for true ladies and gentlemen, not for lying backstabbing scoundre...

Re: Weak Press

Let me qualify a little. Tactics are easy for me . With sufficient study and practice they should be easy for most people. Strategy likewise. As with other games, tactical and even strategic proficiency in Diplomacy can become almost automatic; the mental equivalent of muscle memory. The area of Di...

Re: HTTP Strict Transport Security

I also need (well, "prefer") secure https because I use Lookout for Android's "safe browsing feature". I can type https to get to the main page, but often when I click a game link the browswer is automatically reverting to http (non secure) and the page will not load for me with Lookout's safe brows...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

....That's mathematically impossible as there's 28 players advancing to the Semis. 37 games total. One solo should seal the deal. FYI, per the rules there are only 21 players (not 28) advancing to the semis: https://sites.google.com/view/webdipinfo/classic-map-tournaments/online-diplomacy-champions...

Nope sorry. Seeding is private. Can't have people figuring out who is in what game based on that.
Ok on seeding, but would you please post a WebDip screen name cross reference against the original sign-up list, so we can see who is who as games finish?

Durga, Would you post a seeding table for all the players, please, showing player WebDip screen names cross referenced with players' qualifying site and username on that sight? It would be fun to compare the results coming in to that seeding table. Also, those from other sites have the advantage of ...

Re: Favourite Statistic about yourself &/or other players

How terrible I am at live games. :eyeroll:

Obviously I'm not good under time pressure, and to make matters worse, 5-minute live games only ever allow me about 3 1/2 minutes -- I assume because of my time clock lag? (Any way to fix that time lag?)

Re: Do people want Chaos?

It looks like the first couple turns of Chaos would depend a lot on luck, with luck of the draw (which country you drew; what your neighbors' map bias is; etc.) being a huge factor in whether you have a chance to survive and continue. But I've never played this variant. What do those with experience...

Re: Online Diplomacy Championships 2019

Looks like Ishmael scared MadMarx away by using his "Yonni GR2" rating ("65. IshmaelGuantanamoIV, RR70 PGR 1527.3" (1527!!!). I changed line 65 below to Ishmael's actual Jan PGR of 295.5, so MadMarx can come back now. 1. Tugster, reliability 100%, Peak Ghost rating: 372 2. ibuprofen, reliability 81%...
