Re: to gmo

Re: Turkey gunboat opening options

It offers almost the same advantages, without the risk in 1901. another advantage of this opening is that is one of the few ways to co...

Re: Is it still Diplomacy if there is no press?

sorry i should clarify. i'm cool with the phase length. i just want to get better at regular gunboat. archenemy is complicated as full press, i can't imagine gunboat.

Re: Drawing is the new winning?

I'm tempted to just change the stats on the profile page to show Won: X% Lost: Y% Please do! Heck, there's even players that think "survived" is a positive outcome. i wouldn't call it positive, but it's often preferable to defeat, even if the points don't reflect that. of course, the motivation cha...

Does this English opening have a name?

Basically, when you know Germany is going to move Den-Swe in fall 01, you convince Russia to move GoB-BAL, and you convoy to Denmark. What is this called? Also do people use it? Like it? How do you follow up?

Re: Is it still Diplomacy if there is no press?

while I have some tactical and strategic skill, i seem to lack the nuance to communicate via moves and interpret those of other players. one could argue that press is a crutch. for now at least, press is my preferred way to play, though i am interested in improving my gunboat skills.
