Re: Rage Against The Machine

No rage at all! I love the bots, never having played gunboat before I learn to play with them. And probably I had learned something as only twice I was defeated, all the other games were drawn. Even a 1vs1 got to a draw.
I hope one day they will be able to play press games too!

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Obviously I didn't do so well to make to the second round, I did enjoy the games though. It was my first time in a gunboat and learned a lot from these games. The only thing I am not understanding is the draw policy, after some years as things were mediocre to bad I voted a draw vote, then I had 5 S...

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

Some lies are needed, after all, you cannot have all six of your co-players (or 9 or even 16 in other versions) happy otherwise. But if I come to an alliance, I will not betray my ally. The opposite is a bitter cup to swallow, and this makes me sometimes to stay away from playing.

Re: People that set multiple alarm clocks

It is not easy for all people to wake up, especially if it is early in the morning. Keeping that in mind you must talk to him and find common ground and a solution.

Re: Should players taking control of Civil Disorders be responsible for replicating the previous players play style/stra

History teaches us that a revolution or a coup d' etat can change everything, Russia after the Octombrian Revolution or Russia after the death of empress Elisabeth. It is fit this fact to be a part of the diplomacy game.

Re: Game for a newbie

Οver one phase is considered slow, and there are players who will avoid it. One day is not a short time amount for a phase you can handle. 1v1 games are good to learn moves and strategy, there are no negotiations in these to get practice. As far as I know, there is no time limit and the future of a ...

Re: Game for a newbie

You can also put on one game of your own, and wait for players to gather.
If you wish to play some 1v1 to get used to moves and rules I am willing to play and we can discuss moves as we go to get you familiarised.

Re: Auto-disbanding retreating units

This will speed the game only in the case when one player has a retreat to do and it is auto disband. In all other cases, you still have to wait for the others who have retreating options while to install this function may be quite difficult from the programming aspect and not worth the effort.

Re: Share your talents! (We all deserve a little bit of publicity)

As you said, to have something that excites you and you are willing to devote time and effort to it: is what makes us human. Many people have lost this aspect of life, they are great at their work but beyond that, there is nothing that interests them or that they want to do.

Re: Share your talents! (We all deserve a little bit of publicity)

Writing is my thing. I started as a teenager and never stopped since then. While fantasy and action are the most beloved genres I had tried my pen in almost everything save of comedy which I find very difficult to write and be funny and entertaining.

Re: Excused Missed Turns is inefficient ?

An excused miss in a live game is a matter of minutes so it isn't so much of a big thing; when a game has already a day-long phase it starts to get annoying. Yet it is a good feature as accidents can happen and a player can lose a turn, it is a shame to lose the game for it.
