Re: Fairbot Belt challenge

Thanks. I agree, supporting BUR-MUN is a better good way to go in A02 here.

Re: Fairbot Belt challenge

I had been using the strategy I employed in the first game rather consistently - the turn to STP was the new thing. I definitely made some mistakes after that; particularly, I think I should have taken MUN in Spring 1903, getting me a build. I also think my fleet should have gone via Denmark, which...

Re: Fairbot Belt challenge

@CptMike - what does happen if there's a draw? Does the challenge continue until 5 wins or a loss, or does a draw end it?

Re: Best Piece of Diplomacy Advice

Always put yourself in your rival's shoes. What are their goals? What do they believe? What do you want them to believe? If you understand them, you have a chance to predict them and persuade them.

'Finished' time

The time displayed for games ending is off - perhaps it is one phase length after the true time? E.g. https://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php? ... #gamePanel actually finished just now, not three days in the future.

I would like to point out that Brumark's banner is incorrect. He won *last* year's ODC.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Thanks! And in my last post I forgot to say thank you for writing this up - it's really interesting to hear how this very difficult period of diplomacy looked from the other side.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

A quibble on 1910 - the line we agreed there actually got you two centres (SER and GRE), which would have brought us to equality. You turning down this attack really convinced me that you preferred your alliance with Turkey to an equal partnership with me; though the swift progress of FG changed tha...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Yeah, in the first few years of the game in particular I found the press really exhausting. Particularly as Russia - most other powers can mostly concentrate on their sphere, but Russia really has to talk a lot to everyone. And when everyone is skilful, talkative and trying hard, that's a lot of work.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Here's my AAR. Sorry it's a bit short. 1901 was a simple time; Austria, Italy and I agreed to attack Turkey, and played moves entirely consistent with this. Germany agreed to let me take Sweden on the condition that I open North; I was very happy to accept, because I think opening North with a Galic...
