Oh no. I am so tempted to join this. It's probably a bad idea, especially given the absolute chaos that will ensue, and the sheer number of noobs already in the game, but still... Signup: 1.

Whoops. Accidentally duplicated my post while trying to edit out a typo. :-D Would a mod mind deleting this for me?

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Idea for TT#2: Everyone plays Austria 10 times. If Italy opens lepanto, then you get 0 points for a solo and -1 point for a non-solo. If Italy attacks you in 01, then you get 100 points for a solo and 0 points for a non-solo. Sounds good :) Have you just had a really bad experience (or experiences)...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I believe that unless we finish the remaining phases, we shouldn't declare an absolute winner (also maybe a tiny bit biased here), because the remaining phases would have allowed the rest of the players to place sanctions on any leaders (e.g. Claesar) and probably level the playing field somewhat. C...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I have offered to provide this service but Claesar rudely blocked my genuine offer of assistance because that's just the kind of bitter, withered husk he is. Of course, this wasn't at all an offer you knew he wouldn't accept given that he plays win and would not be willing to give up a winning posi...

Re: Diplomacy Games are Like Onions, Layer 1: Politics

An interesting article. Have to say I am inclined to disagree with a few of the fundamentals, although a lot of the content is sound. The ultimate goal in Diplomacy, that trumps all others, is non-strategic. This goal is simply to have fun. A Diplomacy player who regularly achieves this goal will c...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

Who gave Claesar veto power? This is a democracy, not the UNSC! Things have a chance of happening here! I vote Jamie as GM.

I'm fine with declaring Damo winner.
Aww, but I have the most points... Why can't I win something for once? Then again, if nobody actually wants me to win, that's fine too.

250000 games (kind of)!

I just noticed (yes, I'm probably a little slow), but the site has recently reached 250000 games! Or should I say, the number of games created has exceeded 250000. A fair number of those games never actually started. There's still only 93043 finished games. Congratulations to LeWarz for creating the...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

Well, this will be an interesting phase. Unfortunately, the game took longer than I thought it would due to delayed and extended phases, so I may have to drop out. (Of course depending on how long this phase lasts :-D ) I have a few more days, but until then, ##join popular.
