Re: How would a supported attack resolve-

Two versus one, so you win and displace the army in Berlin. Provided your support isn't cut by another unit attacking the supporting unit.

Make sure to support the move to Berlin and not just the attacking unit.

Re: Leaving this site for good.

I investigated this and
1) Yes, they can (or at least create a bot game).
2) Playing against bots gives you a Reliability Rating, allowing you to play in regular games.

Re: Leaving this site for good.

Another ridiculous thing about Reliability Ratings is that new players with 0% reliability often struggle to find their first game, since the default setting requires a 50% reliability. I've been trying to remember to host newbie games with 0% RR requirement. Ran 5 so far, but thanks for reminding ...

In the two 1:1 variants, there already is a Concede button, but not in the Classic variant. Not sure why this difference.
Because there's a Concede button wven when you play 1v1 against another human player. We don't want this in Classic though.

Can you play protected games without paying?
Yes, it’s not a “premium” characteristic. Neither do “Anonymous” or “Live” any longer require payment.
So nowadays not paying only prevents you from playing Gunboat, and more than 3 games simultaneously? That's good.

Re: Missed turns

No, this is not an option. If your friends are being turds, consider:
1) Unfriending them.
2) Email the mods at webdipmod@gmail.com and we'll see what we can do.

Re: Taking over a disorder

... Does someone who finds a replacement player for a losing position lose GR points for a loss too, or only if the leaving player CDs?

Re: Taking over a disorder

Another factor to consider: I have seen many a player abandon games when they have a losing position, possibly (or maybe 'likely'??) because they don't want to take the GR rating loss. I've seen this with otherwise very reliable and highly ranked players as well. If BOTH the player who starter AND ...

Re: New 5-day-a-phase Classic game

To get a Rating you need to complete a single turn in a game. I'm actually not sure whether bot games count.. I expect they do, but otherwise a 1v1 should find you an opponent quick enough.
