Re: Luck Plays No Part in Diplomacy

First of all, if we're policing language here, random and uniform are not the same thing.

Second of all, I wish more of you unlucky people would join my games.

Just a friendly reminder that students and TAs should not post in this thread. TAs are welcome to ask the professors questions via PM.

Re: School of War Summer 2019

So the one point I want to double down on and disagree with captain on is that England's moves were worth the risk or may work out in a different game. I absolutely disagree with this assessment and think that England telling Germany they are moving from the channel to MAO and convoying to Belgium ...

Can't wait for your commentary on the game pw!!
It's actually much less stressful when I don't have to run the thing (remind professors to post) or post commentary myself.

Re: School of War Summer 2019

Question for Balki: If I'm Germany, I can understand not wanting RT to roll over Austria, but how well do I actually want Austria to do? Won't a successful Austria be looking to take Munich and Berlin in order to set up a solo shot? Question for jmo: Now that the other players can't see when I've sa...

Re: Congrats to pw!!

I can indeed confirm that I played a game against actual people, in real time, in real life. Thanks to Randy and everybody else involved in organizing Massacre for letting me show up for one round. Thanks Aurelin for stealing my +1s. Some general observations: ftf is so stressful. I should have done...

Re: What are you reading?

In any case, last week I finished All the Things You Never Told Me, and now I'm on The Calculating Stars, which just somehow beat The Poppy War for a Nebula. How is The Calculating Stars? I like some of MRK's other stuff. I'm still mad that it beat The Poppy War, but it's actually really good. I ne...

Re: Don’t have time for games

whooooooooosh whoooooooosh whooooooosh We just need to ask Peterwiggen if he thinks ATC is an idiot who doesn't know how many hours there are in a day, or if he was joking that he would work on that issue in the 25th hour of the day. The former means Fluminator is the ultimate woosher, the latter m...

What do you mean they don’t have time? It’s like one line “if day length less than 28 hours, add more time”. I dont see what’s so hard.
Maybe if they had more than 24 hours in a day, they'd be able to take on random requests like this.

Re: What are you reading?

This week I finished The Color of Law and Invisible Planets. I think I'll start The Raven Tower soon. I just looked up target Raven Tower. Sounds like my cup of tea. Did you end up reading it? If so, how was it? I really enjoyed Raven Tower. The central conceit is really cool, and she develops it w...

Re: Don’t have time for games

The developers around here are all volunteers and they're really busy. If you really think this is important, you should code it up yourself and make a pull request.
