Re: Do you change your style according to the country you roll?

In gunboat games, I do adapt my strategy to the country drawn.

In press games, I adapt my strategy more to the other players in the game, with less regard for country drawn.

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

I just checked the Playdip leaderboards. It looks like some guy named "Conq" is ranked first for both Standard Diplomacy and for the catch-all "All Games" category. And this same Conq is in the ODC finals. There is also a thread from Village Idiot saying he is the undisputed champ of online Diploma...

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

I do. Why do you ask? I didn't see you're name in the ODC results board, or in the top 25 on the PlayDip site leader-board. I thought I remember reading that you play there and I was hoping for a webDipper to root for in the ODC, or at least hoping to see that you've beaten some of the players maki...

DIAS Draws?

Would someone please explain to me why some diplomacy players speak of DIAS Draws (Draws Include All Survivors) and regular Draws without DIAS? Don't all draw systems need to require every survivor to vote draw for a draw to happen, and thereby include every survivor in the unanimously voted draw?? ...

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

It was a pretty fun tournament with some strong competition. I got a largish draw in each of my games. I probably could have pushed a couple of them to try get a better finish but didn't have the stomach or drive to do it. Shame that not more people from WebDip stuck it out. Good showing, Yonni. In...

Re: 2018 Tournament Calendar

Any chance that the 2015 Gunboat and 2016 World Cup tables can be updated and posted?

I think the tourney page is great for posterity and to showcase WebDip sanctioned tournaments, but it loses it's luster when final results are not posted :(

Re: (bi)annual WebDip Gunboat tournament?

Awesome, ghug! I think the rules on the tourney page from 2010 (http://tournaments.webdiplomacy.net/gunboat-tournament) are a good place to start, with a few suggested changes: Previously: "Within each 7 player group, 7 games will be played, with each player getting to play each power once.
