Re: Introducing Dark Mode

Possibly useful information: Following the link from http://webdiplomacy.net/contrib/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1853 in the top post triggered the bug for me yesterday (Windows laptop, chrome), and again today (iPad, Safari), the first time I followed it on each device. Subsequent clicks on the link...

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

Thanks for dark mode, it's great! Occasionally, I get a page rendered in light mode instead (which goes dark when I refresh it). For example, it just happened when I followed a link from the forum to a game. There's no obvious pattern to it, so it could be a nightmare to debug, but I thought I'd men...

Re: Excused Missed Turns is inefficient ?

I mean I'm not quite sure why everyone ignored my post stating we're working on a change to make the max delay possible for a missed turn 24 hours, and a longer term change that will remove delays entirely without allowing NMR's as a game creation option. If it's just fun complaining and ignoring t...

Why, thank you! And by chance (or more sinister forces) the rumours are true... I do live within 100 miles of Beccles, which isn't bad going with the whole globe to aim at.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Here's my crack at this; it has simulations and stuff! TL;DR - 47.2 I assumed that: The players are assigned randomly to games. Each game has a random result, drawn from the (finished) results of the first round, except that I reduced the probability of solos to 1 in 6, because my understanding is t...

Re: On Southerlyness of Moscow and Warsaw

I think the point is more general than these two centres. Of the border territories in the main stalemate line, many can be held just fine from either side. Moscow and Warsaw can be held from the North, with or without Sevastapol; Munich and Berlin can be held from the South (together or separately)...

Re: Resigned option

In a very low priority, probably-not-worth-implementing sort of way, it would be nice to be able to resign 1v1 games.

Re: 1v1 practice

(I hope everyone's OK with this turning into a rambling 1v1 strategy/advice thread! I'm finding it really useful.) That seems a funny example - I'd wouldn't convoy to Norway in 1902 if I hadn't build a Paris army in 1902! I dug out the game where I had success with that convoy - http://webdiplomacy....

Re: 1v1 practice

One minor thing on that PS - moving Sil-Ber in Autumn 1902 seems pretty scary, because then a convoy to Norway takes Moscow in 1903, which is pretty grim for Austria. I've only seen that happen once, but it was pretty decisive. I'm up for another game or two (either GvI or FvA) if anyone else is keen.

Re: 1v1 practice

Thanks for your write-up! This was a good game, and you executed the rush well. My regrets in this game are over my 1904/1905 play. Your threat to St P was clearly the way for you to win the game, and I recognised that too late - in Autumn 1904, I should have at least strongly considered a move to S...

Re: 1v1 practice

Sounds about right - which all means that Italy shouldn't devote more than is needed to hold MAO, at least until further into the game than I did here. Thank you for your advice :-)

Re: 1v1 practice

That makes total sense. One thing I've started to see in GvI (which I'm quite new to, and still learning how to think about), is that Italy doesn't gain that much from ruling the seas beyond control of MAO. MAO itself is big, but devoting more than is needed to control MAO is wasteful, because it's ...

Re: 1v1 practice

I agree that the coinflip is probably worse than the default German play. I think it's interesting, but wouldn't use it (unless perhaps I though I was severely outmatched!) Thanks for your points on Spring 1902. I agree 100% about Serbia, not sure what I was thinking on that one. I think if Germany ...

Re: 1v1 practice

Something interesting came up in my game in this "series" with Percy. He was playing Germany, and opened to Bohemia in Spring 1901. I opened to Tyrolia. In Autumn, this leads to a guessing game over Munich and Vienna, with pretty dire consequences for whoever guesses badly! I this case it was me, le...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Thanks for the update Magnetic! A nitpick: I think there are some small errors in how many games some people have played. For example (I haven't check the whole list), I've only played one game (as a sub), and perhaps more relevantly to qualification sweetwatersam has played two.
