Re: the dutch blitzkrieg

If you open to Hol/Ruh/Kie then I see England leaving Belgium alone and bouncing A Kie-Den. Then you can't even build a fleet in Kiel. If Russia moves Mos->StP and forces England to support themselves into Nwy then you still have the other problem mentioned previously with the army in Den being a b...

Re: the dutch blitzkrieg

I would open this if I wanted to show England I dislike them, and France is okay with me having Belgium.

Re: How would you improve the website?

Here is one that I'd find interesting - statistics! It's likely not that tough to add in statistics for various countries regarding solos, draws and losses for each map. Much more complex but much more juicy... robust/detailed statistics with filters so that I player can analyze, for example, openi...

the dutch blitzkrieg

i wanted to start a conversation about the less common german opening: kiel-hol ber-kiel mun-ruhr or bur i can't think of a scenario where i would use this opening. if you force belgium, you'll have a target on your back. it strikes me as very anti-english; that fleet isn't threatening Russia or Fra...

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

i don't care what you call it as long as you join games and submit orders (and send press where appropriate). you can call it candyland if you want to.

I doubt we will ever offer this option.

I believe we've had some games in which all press was voluntarily published by the players afterwards. I don't have a link though.

Re: EoG report for the Dutch 2018 Championship (part 1 of 3)

I read about a top tournament player (can’t remember who) that as Austria once managed to convince Russia not to bounce by explaining that Austria must always defend Trieste with the army in Vienna.

Re: unorthodax alliances

yes, each ae can only be handed out once. if someone was the ae of more than one power that would be quite a disadvantage.

and yes the ae is another power i.e. turkey. the game has been made and pms have been sent to players and claesar.

Re: unorthodax alliances

Anything's fine by me! I figure that if people are willing to disclose they know each other, they won't do anything nefarious in game. in addition, if, in an anon game, they don't reveal to eachother what power they are, there will be no temptation to ally on the grounds of knowing eachother. just ...
