How can I become a crappier person
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?

Three Build England, possiblility and effect on game play.
As far as I know, there is only 1 set of moves that gives England 3 1901 builds, what if in a real game, England, Germany, Russia, and France must complete those moves, what will be the diplomatic effect in game?
superkeiko (239 D)
18 Apr 17 UTC
So it is common knowledge that England have a impossibility in getting 3 builds in A1901, at least diplomatically. The only set of moves I can think that will give England 3 builds in A1901 is:
S1901, A Lvp > Wal, F Lon > North Sea, F Edi > Norwegian Sea.
[France] F Brest > English Channel
A1901, A Wal > Bel(via convoy), F North Sea > Holland/Den, F Edi > Norway.
[France] F Brest convoy A Wal > Bel
It was done here in a "joke" game.

For France, it would be the lost of use of F Brest for 1 year, but France could still get 2 builds.
For Germany, it would be the lost of either Den, or Holland[assuming in the variant that Germany can choose which one], and also Germany can still move into Bur. However, Germany would know for sure North Sea would be unoccupied A1901.
For Russia, no Norway is not that bad.
For England, well, you got 3 builds. What will you build? With perhaps a German fleet in North Sea, French fleet in English Channel, and scatter about F Nor, F Den/Hol, A Bel.

That's not the only way England could get a triple build - you could negate the need for Denmark if you could convince France to convoy you into Brest instead. Sure, it's never going to happen, but any England triple build is never going to happen :)
Jamiet99uk (100 D)

This is not a valid order:

[France] F Brest convoy A Wal > Bel
captainmeme (849 D Mod)
18 Apr 17 UTC
The northern part of your plan is feasible. If you can convince Germany to bounce Sweden, you might be able to get a vacated Denmark by getting Russia to go to Baltic.

Around Belgium... It's essentially a Key Lepanto but with less of a payoff. Why would France convoy you over when you're leaving London open for him to walk into? What does France gain from this over a standard opening?

A_Tin_Can (2258 D)
18 Apr 17 UTC
The army takes Belgium via the French fleet, North Sea takes Holland, and Norwegian takes Norway.

I didn't notice the original post already describes this, though. The point is, there's more than one set of orders.

@superkeiko: I've made that convoy as France in a tournament game before. England didn't get three builds though.

I'm not sure that having a fleet in the Channel as France is a loss, either.

ATC correct ... as France does 'not' get 2 builds if convoys an english army into Brest (only gets 1 build .. plus Spain, plus Por, minus Brest)

why would France do all this again? ;-)
Ezio (668 D Mod)

France wouldn't convoy into BRE, it would convoy into BEL.

gameID=83280 is the ONLY three build England we have on webdip.

I did a search for games where England had 6 orders in Fall 01 - since build orders and move orders all count. There are four such games, and all games have France move to the channel in the Spring.

But, the three other games are sealions, where England has two build orders and a retreat from the North Sea (either a disband or into a centre).

@Everyone Thank you for correcting me that there were more than 1 possible 3 build combination(rare A Wal > Brest).
And as someone already pointed out the Northern part is possible(an anti German gambit)

The Wal>Bel[with French fleet] part:
Consider if to cement a game long alliance, and to test the willingness of the British to trust me, as France, I propose that England use the "3 build opening" on the condition that I can station a fleet in the channel for an extended period(say to 1903, or some specific build threshold), all convoys there will be handle by me, DMZ NAO, and no F Lon(A Lon is okay)

While initially France takes a build hit, it has superior position. If England reneges in S1901, it reverts to a Channel bounce opening. I have all the justification to build F Brest, and know where I stand with the British. If England blinks in A1901, well too bad for them, no F Lon, I can point to my convoy order and insist I kept my word, and want my reward, a garrison fleet in the channel.

I am not saying this isn't borderline impossible to achieve, but in the hands of imaginative people, it might just work. If you were England, and France comes TO YOU with this proposal, wouldn't you just want to try for the sake of its steer epicness. Some people consider English solo's to be on their to do list, maybe a 1901 3 build England should be one as well. Not saying that France won't just go ahead and stab England for London.

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.
