Re: unorthodax alliances

@Ziran
Maybe E picking T forces E to an anti-F game, favouring an AI gang up on T. And also forces a Strong ER relationship, at least for a while. But I concur, as the other's archirival picks may make english mission impossible.

Re: Pause button

Extending ia better than pausing, because youdont need to unpause , but it faces the same problem: will all the players press the button on time?

Re: Phase length applies even to obvious disbanding?

This is a necessary "feature". I and others who once belonged to the Judge pbem community ser the 72/24/24 deadline scheme as natural... It was not complicated for the newbies of the 90's, and there were thousands of them back then as well.

A new taste to the 1v1 scene, or two

A simple feature, and a map: --> The [concede] button! (side by side the draw one, as it exists in vdip) I understand the developers not making it a webdip feature, but, why not allowing it for unrated games? As all 1v1 games are unrated, voilà ! --> The Civil War map! (https://vdiplomacy.net/varian...

It already exists, in theory.

Re: May GhostRatings Published

@Yonni, take a closer look to the idea above - weighing powers! On GvI it is very predictable: G wins, the winner takes fewer points, the loser loses the same fewer points; I wins, the winners takes more points, the loser the same loses more points. Next step, apply it to all maps (I wonder an itali...

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

I'm in, I need to equilibrate my rankings. I disagree with you MM, the really good player is good at any 1v1 map. Specialists are not -necessarily- good players. Became a specialist myself, GR2 #7 in FvA, but almost last position in GvI! I know I'm just an average player and something is wrong in on...

Re: March GR2 Published

Yonni, the 1v1 players would like to see a GR2 1v1 ranking...

There's no need to give 1v1 games any weighing to the general ranking; just a separate ranking for the 1v1 games, applying GR2 methodology!

Re: Repercussions for quitting

@Octavious, from personal experience I say this. When I joined webdip, not much long ago, I used to take over lots of hopeless positions, in some I fought hard to find a place in a draw, in most I was simply eliminated or survived to a solo. When I figured out there was a GR and it could be used to ...

never late to start a log of CDs. That seems quite easy to implement!

Re: (bi)annual WebDip Gunboat tournament?

I understand if all games are set as "noreveal". In the other hand, it is a nice thing to watch out the table of players standings evolve!
