Re: The truth about the new forum

School of war was a big thing. and I noticed its mostly vanished with this new forum also. 1) We've hosted SoW since the new forum. 2) We don't have SoW because the mod team is very busy, we can't find TAs and we can't find profs. It has nothing to do with the forum. That's like saying Trump was el...

Re: The truth about the new forum

New Forum is a great thing! That's all everyone needs to know. you can buy more storage space pretty dirt cheap on just about any web hosting service. its like 400 bucks a year for 1 billion forum posts worth of data on some providers. I don't see a donor star of whatever color in the profile of th...

Re: The truth about the new forum

With the new forum, does the main complaint really just come down to not seeing some topics on the front page? i.e. could the issues be solved by making what is shown on the front page configurable in some way? Perhaps something like Google has with "Safe Search"...the Politics filtering is on by d...

Re: A counter to the counter of a support...

If Rumania supports the move from Western Black Sea to Bulgaria, Ankara cannot cut that support.

Other than that, everything worked as intended.

No, that's unnecessary.

I would recommend password-protecting the game then.

I presume you can't join because you don't have enough time?..

I see no reason why the site wouldn't let you.

So why is this called a Wilson Game, anyway? Is it a Home Improvement joke?
I always thought it was because of the 'Public Diplomacy' of President Woodrow Wilson. I think OP added 'genuine' to indicate that sending press is mandatory.

Re: Bot game not advancing after readying orders

If the human player misses a turn, the bot players get upset and refuse to ready up. If you complete another turn, they will ready again.

I'll fix it manually for you in this game so you can continue.

Re: Starting positions

... I could imagine, for example, for Turkey to build 3 A and move North against Russia provided alliance with Austria, while Austria goes against Italy. Why not? That is an excellent example of how the game would become less interesting. This Turn0 diplomacy would lock Turkey into one option for t...

What if it were Pick you Supply Center where each player picks which three(or four!) of the territories colored their color at the start they would like to be supply centers? Then there is a build phase and the game starts with units in the territories they picked to be supply centers instead of th...

Re: Starting positions

If you're talking about the rulebook variant for fewer than 7 players in which you draft home centres, we recently tried it F2F and it worked surprisingly well! We didn't allow negotiations during the draft though, so I can't comment on that aspect.
