2019 Mentor Project!

Introducing the 2019 webDiplomacy Mentor Project! We’ve learned from our own experiences and from feedback from our mentors that the webDiplomacy mentor program isn’t going too well - often, since we have nothing to follow along with, mentoring turns into answering a few questions, then nothing else...

with a lot of help from (and much thanks to) Claesar and Magnetic24.
Which mod spent almost two hours on flight II making sure that 7 players had each country once in 7 games? That happened to have been one of the first things they did as a mod? Asking for a friend :)

Welcome! Diplomacy's advanced a lot, especially since we just released our Diplomacy AI! Don't hesitate to ask if you have trouble with the interface.

Hi everyone, The Nexus tournament sign-ups open today! Nexus is an inter-platform tournament like the Online Diplomacy Championships. But more than that, it's also a huge and growing community with the goal of bringing the different Diplomacy communities together. It's a great mission and they've do...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Sorry emails can be sent from a phone!

Whatever's easier is what follows mod policy. Which is emailing us for requests. Which is made clear to everyone.

Short PP Live Game

I put together a practice live game at https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=244361 and we need one more player. Password is discordserver. Teach me how to play live games, please. :)

The game will end after builds of 1907, and I need everyone to agree to that down here. Thanks!

Re: What be Discord?

Discord has basically become the center of the online Diplomacy community, especially as Nexus grows with its mission to bring the Dip communities together. Personally, most of my closest friends on this site were the ones I met over Discord. I could go on and on about how nice the website is, how e...

Re: Coalition Game Variant!

Thank you everyone for signing up! Your partners and countries will go out some time today.

Big games will inevitably need subs, so if you want to play but were too late, or just want to do us a favor, PM me or comment here and I’ll add you as a sub.

Looking forward to watching you all play!

Re: Coalition Game Variant!

Some additional clarifications: 1. If the team member controlling the country on the site uses their excused missed turn, they will be replaced by the mods with their partner. 2. If the team member not controlling the country on the site stops playing, the game director (Aurelin) will attempt to fin...

Coalition Game Variant!

Hi all, we're running a variant with communications on Discord that's played with teams. Credit goes to Chaqa for this idea! Two players play each country, as a sort of coalition rule. They'll both be assigned the role of that country on the Discord server, with private channels for each team as wel...

We need more mentors!

We're proud of our mentor program because of how we've improved the community through it, but we're currently very short on mentors. Please become one! It's a huge favor to both your mentee and the site. Some information is at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dSq6zlizecb90F3OKSqyFUWGI32Or87ZNmkFm...

Re: Does a broken convoy bounce?

Convoys are stronger than supports. If a convoying fleet is attacked but not dislodged, the convoy continues. So a convoy is only stopped if Black Sea is dislodged.

Hope that helps!

Congrats to peterwiggin on Best England at the Boston Massacre tournament! Which, might I add, was his first FtF tournament.

He’s also an amazing admin and I love being on the mod team with him.

The book The Major is referring to is called Flatland. It's great, you should all read it.
That book was amazing!
