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.

Re: Diplomatic Pouch Zine - New Issue!

Until I get my post up, read back through this thread and note that everyone else commenting feels your article and response is sexist too. Yeah because you've already banned anyone who would dare to state a different opinion. or, because the article attempts to defend a completely unsubstantiated,...

Re: Support move cancelled

The only thing that cuts support is a unit moving to the supporting units space. However, if a unit supports a unit to hold and the supported unit moves, that support is invalid.

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. Or if I desperately want to show Russia I won't bounce them out. i think this makes the most sense. either france is okay with letting you take belgium, or you already know an e/f is coming your...

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...
