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.

When do Ethics Breakdown
Are individuals more etically aware of their actions than a village, or a city or a state or a country at what point does the ethics break down..

Ethics break down when faced with simple logic.

As for the reason, I guess it's because of the stakes. The larger the group, the (seemingly) bigger the goal, the easier it is to say that the end justifies the means.

I suppose the question becomes why do ethics breakdown when it it one of the initial reasons groups form..shared views...not including groups that form due to external immediate crisis..

The bystander effect shows that people are less likely to intervene in an ethically compromising situation if there are other people around who also have the ability to act. However, this is mainly talking about a case of being proactive and stepping up even though the law does not require it. I think that people follow the law more when there is a group or country that is making the rules because it is a defined political/social structure and people respond to rules and authority. So for being lawful citizens, a group or country would create the most ethical people but for an individual's morals, they are probably best on their own.

@oliveskin, you are assuming that laws equal ethics, which is by no means true. In fact, it was Antigone that first taught us that laws have nothing to do with ethics.
oliveskin (100 D X)

@Zmaj that's what I'm saying. I am agreeing with Smokey that ethics do generally break down as there are more people added. But at the same time, laws become more followed. It's a trade off.

He's a man of high ethics. It takes a LOT of money to make him compromise his ethics.

So how does this explain Trump who said publicly during the debates that we need more laws to make him act ethically and obey existing laws. Plus those around him that also act unethically and illegally.

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?

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.
