Re: Very unsportsmanlike conduct

All good posts. It's an absolute fact that taunting and rudeness is one of many press tactics that can be effectively employed (or can backfire). There are many press tactics that can work, if employed effectively. Cooperation, politeness, suggested actions, convincing, logical reasoning, silence, i...

Re: Very unsportsmanlike conduct

sometimes, rudeness itself is used as tactic, to provoke certain moves and reactions, taunting a player, etc, all fair. Unless rudeness falls into racism, sexual comments, or directed at you in real life, etc, then it's all part of the game.

Re: Official webDip Holiday: On the first day of Xmas, my zultar gave to me

I strongly object to this. All this means is that some noobs, who have no idea how to play, will suddenly get a few hundred points that they cannot earn on their own, then they will join one of my high stakes game, where they do not deserve to be, and then screw it up.

Re: Question about AI retreating

destruction of units for a nation that has more units that SC is not random, there is a detailed rule-book handling of this, based on distance from home SC, then fleet before army, and final tiebreaker is alphabetical order of the province name, not random at all.

Re: Game Where Everyone Are Honest

I think you need to clarify in detail the rules quite a bit to avoid problems and confusion. And I think it would be way better on the world map, but you should test in on classic. you MUST do this with a mod supervising, and to enforce and kick out anyone who does not follow the rules. Each player ...

Re: Gulf of Lyon(s)

the actual name is:

Gulfe du Lion, and it is not pronounced at all like the English word "lion" the big cat, The first syllable has a ee sound, not an i sound. So it's sort of like lee - ON, but the on is nasal sound unique to French. It sounds nothing like Lion in English.
