Re: Diplomacy club

I would have to second the notion that you'd want a Teacher or Staff member to champion your cause. If you don't have an idea who to ask, depending on who they are, a good place to start might be your school Librarian. A typical Librarian is no big fan of censorship and blocking, a fan of history, a...

Re: Colonial Diplomacy: The OG variant

This is also a favorite of mine. Maybe it's the nostalgia of playing a lot of it in the mid 90's, but I loved it imbalance and all. It's a gorgeous board, which of course doesn't translate here on webDip, but still. I'd sooner play this than any other variant, honestly.

Re: Drawing is the new winning?

My involvement in this hobby came from a place where fellow wargamers would get together to play a game. There were no points to be had or scores to maintain, just the thrill of fight and the braggadocio to be had. So the debate of point systems has always felt foreign and irrelevant to me. What I'v...

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

I've played a number of gunboat games, and I've done poorly in all of them. While I have faith in my tactical and strategic ability, but it's not helped me at all. I think my game relies heavily on the human interaction part. So much so that, in its absence, I struggle.

Re: Very unsportsmanlike conduct

I find the psychology involved in press tactics to be endlessly fascinating. When you break it down, that psychological and communications element is at the core of the game (save gunboat). What you say, how you say it, and when are all means to an end. Entering your press is just as important as en...

Re: Very unsportsmanlike conduct

Dear Maltir, I preface this by saying that I very much want you to feel welcome here, and I would go so far as to say that everyone else who's responded to you so far would share that sentiment. The prevailing commentary seems to also share the overall theme that some players are rude, and we simply...

I have no doubt that you are doing things to attract more people here. Being insulting is not among them, however, and is counterproductive. Look. You are clearly a leading personality on this site, and in the process of organizing a tournament that could well bring more people here. Your attitude, ...

Re: Proposed change

If people are more confused by "hidden" draw votes, they're too stupid to be playing this game. Look, I don't much care what a game's default setting is. It's a minor detail in the grand scheme of things. But, Durga, I think you're out of line with this comment. If the goal is to attract more playe...

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

Yeah, I really wish I would have been able to finish the Public Press game. I'm glad the Public Press game got a lot of attention though, as it's a variant I'm rather fond of. Overall, this tournament has been the highlight of my Diplomacy career thus far, and I'm glad I was a part of it. Congrats t...

Hi Scarabus,

I'm Yigg, and though I'm far from an expert on all things, I'd be more than happy to answer any questions, or walk you through whatever needs walking. I'll send you a direct message and we can talk there.

@yigg why non-anon?
I suppose it wouldn't much matter. But if two people know who each other are, we all might as well? But it's not a big deal. I'm just happy to play in a bonkers-style game like this.
