What makes someone terrible at playing diplomacy
I was wondering if personality traits can make it harder for someone to ever get good at this game. I consider myself pretty average if not mediocre at diplomacy for a number of reasons.

What would happen if science could prove even theoretically that an afterlife exists that is based on morality? Also if this happens would it be considered spam to offer indulgences on webdip.

Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?

Discord Help?
According to discord I am spicy? Because of my hotness I have been told that I need to "Chill". This is unfair to attractive people. I am being discriminated based off of my sexiness which should not be allowed. How do I try to get out of this "Chill Zone" without giving up my beauty? Please send help.

Coup in North Korea
I was trying to think why Trump would engage in such brinksmanship with North Korea. Sure, it could be just more inexperience, etc, but then I was thinking that maybe the goal is to scare the generals there so much that someone bumps off the Great Leader. Then I started thinking, that's probably why he rubbed out his half-brother recently.

"rolling dices"?
I just won a 1v1 against CptMike, however he was getting really angry at me, saying he does not want me to join any more games that he has created, accusing me of "rolling dices". What happened according to me is that I lured him into trying for Munich in Autumn 01, then bouncing him out of there and basically leaving him with only one build.

Cheating in live games
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=196087

Does anyone else think it's strange that Germany and Russia perfectly coordinated moves in a live game that was anonymous without any chat whatsoever? Also, I find it strange how Russia makes no moves in the end and allows Germany to completely take him over. I think we have a multi scandal on our hands people!

Legitimacy of the website
Hey all,

Was just wondering how legitimate this website is? I played Diplomacy back in the day, but never online. Wanted to know how rampant cheating or botting is. Seems like a lot of players play in multiple games together. Is it just a small community or are this an uncommon thing? Anyways, having fun so far! Reminds me of the good-ol-days. Thanks for the dialogue.

There are a few bone-headed players who shall remain Capt_Brad, but other than that, they seem pretty vigilant about stopping cheating and meta-gaming. Not even sure how a bot would work here.

While the irony of the term "tumblrfag" is not lost on me (though the comedic flavor it seems to have to some people certainly is), slurs of that sort are not permitted on this site. Please refrain from using them.

Is the term "fascist" also considered a slur? Or should I just call our mod "overzealous"? Somehow it doesn't convey the same message.

Fascist is fine, but we prefer overzealous.

@chacho: Welcome to the site!
We do our best to keep the site free of cheating. I think we do a pretty good job of it, too.
The community here isn't massive, but we do have almost 2000 players actively playing in games. As you mentioned, it's possible to find yourself in games with similar people, but there's always enough to find new players.
I hope you enjoy yourself!

chacho: You are playing with a lot of other new players. There is always a higher risk of encountering cheaters and duplicate accounts when you're playing with new players, but as mentioned, the moderators here seem to do a good job at catching and banning accounts that break webDiplomacy's rules. If you have concerns, e-mail the moderators (but don't post cheating accusations on this Forum):
