Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

Sure, i was not referring to you - you did a lot of work and we all are thankful about that - i was asking to the players who still didn't join. But then again if we want to fill up the games on Sunday it's absolutely ok to me

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

I see that no game has been filled yet - are we starting them all on Sunday?
No hurry at all, just asking

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Disrespectful towards the other players. That's the part i don't understand. You only have 3 possible results: win, draw, or lose. Surviving with a couple of sc's or being defeated is basically the same. So assuming the draw was not agreed upon from the start (which is not disrespectful, is cheatin...

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

How beautiful
- No gunboat
- No anonymous
- No speed games
- Metagaming in its best meaning, ie you have a reputation, you care about it, and you know and take into account your opponents' style and karma
That's Diplomacy with capital D :)

Abandoning a bot game shouldn't lower your RR? I'm told the bots are okay with this suggestion.
iirc you can simply Cancel the game and the bots will instantly agree

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

@David, yes i realize you were talking about variants. I'm just saying that if Calhamer had asked for your advice then Classic dip would have had 31 sc's, while i'm glad it has 34 :-) @jay, maybe i've overstated the point - after all only 10% of my draws are 2-way (and not all of them were so well p...

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

Yes, as to no two way draws. Ok, my record on webDip is 2 wins, 49 draws, 29 losses/survivals - and 5 of the draws are 2-way, so you can call me a carebear and perhaps a 2-way fan :lol: That said, your idea sounds horrible to me. You, RJ, BrotherBored and many others will now massacre me, but i bel...

Re: How Do We Feel About Not Even Trying to Win?

An odd number of dots aims at making 2-way impossible?
But why a prime number?

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

i'm happy to play, but since G1 has already formed i don't want to steal a place in it; so although i would be 7th (atm) i suggest: G1 1. MadMarx - 4.5 (GR = 350.189) 2. Yonni - 5 3. ben9990 - 10 (message on Discord to start) 4. ATC - 13.5 (GR = 255.26) 5. swordsman3003 - 16.5 (GR = 248.157) 6. TheF...

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

It would be interesting to know what exactly was not clear. Different people may have difficulties regarding different aspects... Diplomacy rules in general, site rules/concepts (reliability rating, webdip points, etc), how to find/join/create games, how to play the games you joined/created. What wa...

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

I don't remember having problems in finding a few games when i first joined a couple of years ago. I suppose i just found some RR=0 games - maybe i've been lucky. But playing with bots, or finding a zero requirement game, are not the only answers: you can create your own game (RR=0 of course) perhap...

Re: Slower full press game

if the game is really going to start on August 23 I will be happy to join (though I will probably be active starting from 24). But if you can find 7 players and want to start sooner no problems, I will join next time
