Would anyone be interested in joining a game with some friends of mine and I?
I have 3 friends that I would like to introduce to the game, but can't seem to talk anyone else into playing with us for a full Ancient Med game. Just a casual, low-bet game, probably 2 day turns.

Just another example of Trump hypocrisy. He slammed Obama for merely bowing. The curtsy was bigly over the top.

Juggernaut is actually a horrible alliance
Despite the fearmongering ive seen in Press games about Juggernauts over the past 5 years ive been here...I cant help but note its low rate of success and how its paranoia often benefits France or England most. Please share games where Juggernauts fail miserably. But also include ones which work out in a 2wd (if there even is such a situtation)

Agreed, at least when I try to do it. It tends to succeed more when I oppose it.

I think the theoretical reason why Juggernauts is the one with the special name is Juggernauts alliances is the only neighboring starting alliance with a sound foundation towards a stable 2 way draw. Also, it includes the only power that stalemate lines affect the least, Russia.
See: http://www.diplomatic-pouch.org/Zine/S2001M/Ledder/TwoWayDraws.html
Now, if you read the article, you could see that why Turkey gets a raw deal since Vie, Bud, and Rum needs to be on the Turkey side to achieve a "good" 17/17 split.
Now, for any other player 17/17 split is the worst you can get.(You are eliminated). However, fear is a wonderful thing, and diplomats LOVE to exploit it.

I've managed to have one successful "juggernaut" alliance in 100+ games at WebDiplomacy.. it's success was probably due to the fact I had Russia, the country/player with a greater opportunity to doublecross it's partner, and that I place as high a value on loyalty as I do on winning. ( heresy to the WTA brigade )

I've had the reverse experience when I've had Turkey in juggernauts.. Continual betrayal by the blighters with Russia.

The reason that juggernauts form in the first place is because the I/A is unwilling to break up. There is such a small likelihood that either Italy or Austria are willing to ally with Turkey that Turkey is often automatically aiming for a juggernaut. Because of this, Italy and Austria are even more unlikely to break up, and players become predisposed to those sorts of alliances. Really, when it comes down to it, neither the I/A or the juggernaut are all that effective, but it also seems that whichever alliance breaks up first ends up losing to the other, so again, the effect is circular.

Turkey could try the Russian Nightmare: Turkey, Germany alliance starting year 1.
Do the Russian attack, Turkey takes Romania, and Sev. Germany walks into Warsaw, deny Sweden. Maybe promise Germany attack on Austria after Russia is gone.

Juggernaut can be a powerful alliance, but it is never unexpected, and therefore, easily seen and dealt with.
MajorMitchell (1033 D)

I defer to the experts. I think Germany makes a great alliance partner for Russia. But, as always, it's down to the players... and the last Russian and German alliance I was in...didn't end well for me, did it TOM ?

I think from my point of view as Austria or Italy I approach year one cautiously that thè Jugg is an automatic especially if Russia or Turkey fails to reply. From my experience the Juggernaut has forced me into I/A - not the other way around

Is it Treason to sympathize with the Confederacy?
Shouldnt it be treason to sympathize with the Confederacy? We fought a war and defeated them. Hundreds of thousands died more than any war fought by America. For people who still wish the south had won- chant the south shall rise again or fly its flags isnt this treason?

Should otherkin be forced to give up their human rights?
Are there any otherkin on this site? I'm genuinely curious to understand this culture more. If you identify as something non-human, do you think you have a right to get the privileges that all humans deserve? Or do you believe you're in a separate category and thus have different standards and base rules to start off with?
