WebDiplomacy Survivor - Final Tribal Council
35 days ago, 21 castaways begun their journey in the webDiplomacy version of the famous reality game show. Now, only three - Balki Bartokomous, DemonOverlord, Fluminator - remain, and all have fought tooth and nail to make it this far.

The final victor will be decided by eleven of the players they voted out, and this is their opportunity to sway votes their way. Welcome to Final Tribal.

Supporting others against your own unit
I'll be circumspect about the description, for obvious reasons (game's ongoing, in case it wasn't sufficiently obvious). See below.
Clownie (295 D)

The situation is as follows: I've surrounded an enemy SC with 3 units able to move or support there, while the enemy has a unit in the SC, one adjacent, and one adjacent to one of the units I'd use to support, but not adjacent to the SC itself. I'm assuming he'll use the third unit to tap mine, thereby making it 2 on 2, which is why I want to use the unit I'm expecting him to tap for tapping rather than supporting. That way, with me tapping his supporting unit, it should hopefully be 2 vs 1 and get me the SC. However, for contingency, I'm supporting another power into the space I'm tapping from from another external space, and I've run into some pretty weird situations wrt supporting others into my own held spaces before. Will this work? Will it void the tap I ordered?

It will not void the tap your ordered (nothing can void a tap, except if the tap is through a convoy and a fleet in the convoy is dislodged).

You will also never dislodge your own unit. So if your unit doing the tapping--call it X--does not actually move, your allied power will not force its way into X, and X will not be dislodged.

The support-move into X with the other power will only become relevant if another unit tries to go into X (with or without support), as now you'll be 2 against them instead of 1.

^ That's right.
Clownie (295 D)

So if I'm understanding this right, supporting someone else into a tile I'm occupying is functionally identical to support holding it with one unit?
Mercy (1662 D)
02 Jun 17 UTC
When determining whether some enemy player can dislodge your army, yes, that's identical.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
02 Jun 17 UTC
No. You might find a situation where a third suppor (of an enemy unit) into your unit will cause a 3vs3 bounce (against a third player).

Say england supports orders
A mun holds
A kiel S bur to mun

France orders:
A bur - mun
A ruhr S bur - mun

Now germany (the third player) can attack mun with three.

But you don't know whether he will.

If germany only attacks munich with two, your support to the french will be cut, as 3vs2 would dislodge the english army munich.

In this case, ordering A kiel S A mun to hold, risks that france will he heaten 3vs2 in mun by the germans, and england will be beaten 3vs2 by the germans. Dislodging you.

In which case, you are better off supporting the french to try and generate a standoff.

Autocomplete public press
Basically the idea is to provide you with a centre so we can work together. The only press is public commitment to attack Italy. Every sentence may be in Gascony and the other games. The rest is autocompleted to find out what kind of player is required.

Rims, Gold Chains, Fancy Cars, Implants, Gold Teeth, Swimming Pools, Palm Trees, Mansions, "Ive made it culture", "Look at me". Are values pure to American capitalism and more purely espouse what America is.
