All games were apparently automatically paused. Can they now be automatically unpaused? At least non-live games.
No, this is only possible manually and it's way too much for us. Please unpause your own games as much as humanly possible.

Re: A rant about Reliability Rating

All gunboats are anon (nowadays). This wording is something we should change.

You can post about anon Full Press games. You can even reveal your identity.

Do not talk about ongoing games on the forum.

(I'm sure that used to be a rule?)
You're wrong, that never used to be a rule.

You cannot talk about ongoing Gunboats. More correctly; you cannot break game press rules.

Great, thanks for the explanations.

What is the maximum phase length for it to be "live", and what is "normal"?
Maximum phase length for live is 30min/phase. Don't join games with that length though..

Normal is 5min/phase for Gunboat (no press) and 7 or 10min/phase for (Full) Press.

Re: A rant about Reliability Rating

I've just finished a game where a player went into CD, but then rejoined and proceeded to not engage in press and hold each turn until destroyed. Even missed a few more turns after the original CD. Very annoying, and he can't understand why we were annoyed. Please email us when this happens and we ...

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

Yeah, I should have used Serbia to support a move to Rumania in Autumn 1902. One thing I noticed about both the other games is that Italy played Lepanto in both, which is the main reason Turkey fell. Yes, Italy doing a Lepanto helps a lot. Nonetheless, in the draw that I posted Italy and Turkey bot...

Re: Why?

Why do people leave games? Don't think I've left one yet. Is there a penalty or what? Yes, there's a significant penalty. Their Reliability Rating will drop and before long they will be unable to play (many) games. As you can see in the link Yonni provided, some people then complain about it on the...

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

Actually, in the referenced turn, I supported Turkey from Constantinople to Rumania, because that is where they moved from the previous turn, however, they changed and attacked from Bulgaria, resulting in a failed support No, you did that in A03 which was way too late. Congrats on the solo though!

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

Yes, it's been done many times. As with regular Gunboat against humans, Austria has the highest elimination rate but also strong solo potential once you get to the midgame. I'll post some links later.

Re: A rant about Reliability Rating

If you can't be counted upon to enter orders on time, don't play with people who expect you to do so (i.e. games with high RR requirement). If you're unavailable, ask the mods for a pause. If all else fails, mail the mods to ask for your missed turn(s) to be excused or your temp ban lifted. We are v...

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

I wasn't committed to 10 minutes specifically, but 5 minutes usually isn't long enough for long conversations. So maybe 7 minutes? And I think there is some kind of setting I've seen in like Rulebook Press where there's no press in retreats or builds and also there's no option to "Save" moves. You ...

Re: Can I start a game with less players?

You cannot play Classic regularly with less than 7 on our site. As mhsmith suggests you can play with bots if you host it as a Gunboat. You could still do negotiations via PMs or Whatsapp or Discord or mud wrestling. You could also try to advertise for more players on the forum. Lastly, you could pl...

These situations are very complicated, but I believe DATC rules Nth is dislodged so the convoy can't cut the support.
