Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Curious why we put more emphasis on peak Ghost Ratings (in the HoF). I thought the current rating is more indicative? For example, a player could have had a high peak rating long ago, but then steadily declined (because the average skill level of other players went up, but this particular player did...

Re: October Ghost Ratings Published

How are Ghost Ratings calculated when a player takes over a civil disorder?

Re: 2019 ODC Finals (retrospective)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always had the assumption that it would take many years to play Diplomacy well. But perhaps that's not always the case.

Re: 2019 ODC Finals (retrospective)

teccles it is impressive that you started playing diplomacy so recently, yet managed to play at such a high level so quickly. How did you do that?

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

We are now at the cusp of one of the most anticipated games of all time, after almost a year of waiting. I, for one, will be watching this game with great interest and awe. I was wondering though, would the 7 finalists be willing to disclose their press once the game ends? It is a suggestion, and th...

Maybe I need to rephrase "I shall not be too disappointed." What I mean is I enjoyed reading your journal and delighted to be able to read your ongoing posts.

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Autumn, 1912, Builds I really wish I don't have to fight with Turkey, and we can have a 3-way draw. But now it is looking increasingly likely that I will have to fight for solo with Germany. Somehow I am not looking forward to it, although I am not sure why, since it kind of is the goal of the game ...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1911, Diplomacy Germany built another fleet... Not good news. But it could due to my paranoia and moving my army from Paris to Picardy. That may have made Germany nervous... But I really have zero desire to fight with Germany. Autumn, 1911, Diplomacy Is turkey after me or italy Spring, 1912,...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1909, Diplomacy No idea what Italy is doing. He doesn't seem to care that I am attacking him. Good that Germany built an army not fleet. I think I am going to just stay put and not advance further. Don't really plan to solo. I don't know if it is the right thing to do, whether I am being no...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1907, Retreats Germany is probably angry that I didn't help with Marseilles. Will do that next round. Hope he'll give me St Petersburg. Autumn, 1908, Retreats Italy didn't expect me to attack, it seems, even though I thought it was quite obvious. He seems very keen on attacking Austria for ...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Autumn, 1906, Diplomacy I think I will make a bet that France will miss his move again. If I am right, my moves this round could completely eliminate France. Otherwise it is not too bad a move either. A challenge I am facing is whether Germany will take Holland. I don't want to be too greedy, but i...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1906, Diplomacy Not much time to think about this round due to my personal schedule. I probably should not capture Holland as it might be too greedy and piss Germany off. I need allies and I am not really aiming for solo... I think aiming for solo in a draw size scoring game only makes sense...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1905, Diplomacy I know I said Germany will be declaring war by building a fleet at Berlin. Maybe I was pushing to too far. He might simply be worried about Russia trying to attack Sweden in the last move. And my constant love fest with Russia St Petersburg is probably not making it easy for ...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Autumn, 1904, Diplomacy 13 March 2019 I have a 50% chance to capture one of France supply centers in Portugal or Spain. He doesn't know which I will go for and likewise I don't know which he will defend. A roll of a dice essentially. Though, I think he will more likely want to defend Spain, since it...

Re: A Noob's 7000-word Gunboat Journal

Spring, 1904, Diplomacy Diplomacy is an emotional game. Started the game feeling super keen on doing very well. Now annoyed. Worried I will get killed. Not point attacking stp anymore because Russia will just take it back next round. Russia so far has seemed keen to ally with everyone. Also signaled...
