Diplomacy Strategy: Sphere Theory
First and foremost, this "theory" is based on articles written by other members of the Diplomacy community. This thread is simply an elaboration of those ideas.

This "theory" attempts to craft a general strategy for the game that can be used as a guideline for players.

Unhelpful Allies
Quick question, does anyone get annoyed by allies who send you messages saying really obvious things about what other countries did last turn or where you could easily get a SC. Basically all the information that is super clear that everyone could figure out but they decide to tell you anyways. Am I the only one who feels this way?

high-level gunboat - any interest?
I'd like to play a game with, say, folks who are in the top 50 gunboat players according to the ghostratings. Would we be able to put a game together?

GB 3 Game Tournament
Being in the middle of a pretty long, drawn-out game, I feel the need to flex some tactical muscle. I'd like to propose a 3 game, semi-anon, 24 hour phase, WTA series. Preference is for a high reliability (<80%) and moderate to high GR. 25 to 50 point buy-in. Once we get the 7, games will be created and PW messaged out.

1) Hamilton Brian RR 98%, general GR position of 177

A prealliance WW1 mock?
Does this sound balanced or does it need work? Obviously it doesn't require actual diplomacy but I just wanted to think about the map and how well it correlates to WW1.

@user- just checked the entire message log. i see only one instance where i cursed before you told me to "go fuck" myself and a "degenerative moron". That instance was in Autumn 1902 after a year of trying to get you and italy to stop fighting so you could work together against Turkey/Russia; you told me i had no leverage to get italy or you to comply.

"The leverage is the ability to point out the obvious which is that you two will both be eliminated if you don't work together and act as a third party assistant to help you two work out some deal. But ya know what. Fuck it. I'll just side with Russia and you can fight all 4 of your neighbors. Screw any assistance I was going to offer in the future you and Italy are too god damn stubborn."

this means my first curse wasnt even directed at you but directed at how exasperated i was that someone could be so stubborn and ignorant of their position. like i knew this was SoW with new players and such but ive seen first time players with better board awareness.

My next message posted after Profs made commentary:
Damn brah. Profs pretty much pointed out the stuff I said. I would keep that hand out to help you but others have offered better deals. Sorry mate. For future consideration I'd consider being less abrasive in press and more open to suggestion. People like working with personable individuals; unfortunately you aren't really batting 100 in that field.

after another message pointing out the reality (hoping that maybe austria would self motivate to ally with italy if i was antagonizing him.) i posted the following for my own amusement:
One little two little center Austria. One little two little center austria. One little too little Austria. Has no chance of winning. (Sing that as a nursery rhyme, I came up with it myself)

My post game thoughts...

I thought Sandy played very well, he took advantage of the clusterfuck going on around him perfectly. His flipping Austria and Russia was very effective. I think the criticism for finishing strong is a little unfair. Turkey is often the most intimidating end game power, often because taking Moscow makes them look really big. Had England not also played an excellent game, I think Turkey solos.
goldfinger0303 (1017 D)

I would've at least liked to see an attempt at the solo though

I did want to continue on but EG were deadset on a 3 way draw and I couldnt defeat them on my own. Also if I had pushed on then this would have forced germany to respond and could have opened the door for a potential english solo.

Bump for Other EOGs.

Also it's a god damn shame that there are players in this game who were aware of the reality that SoW usually requires an EOG and they still haven't posted. You'll make it no where in this game if you can't even do this right.
It's fairly typical for it to end up like this, CAB :)

I do appreciate your enthusiasm

I suppose that's why the near constant use of the Notes feature is a good habit to get into. Any EoGs I might do consist more of "stream of thought" notes based on what I am seeing on the map or conversations I've had at that immediate point in time. This was an interesting game to watch.

I, personally, forgot to take notes, though I think what I posted earlier summed up the majority of the motive behind my actions (the game-shifting ones, at least)
