Re: School of War Summer 2019

Greetings students and observers. My name is Yigg, and I have been cordially asked to give a guest lecture by our esteemed professors. Before I begin, I would like to take a moment and graciously thank our professors not only for their considerable time and energy devoted to this School of War, but ...

Play Wilsonian With Me!

Hello webDippers! Someone in Discord got me thinking that I need to get a good Public Press game going. So I'm doing just that! If you think you'd enjoy a Wilsonian game, or just feel like playing with me because we had a good game before, check it out! It's set up for 2 Day turns for lively time to...

Re: School of War/ Mentor Game

I would be more than willing to either function as a Mentor for this game, or as a player (because I can always be a better Yigg). You are welcome to use me as best you see fit.

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...

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...

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...

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...
