Game of Thrones Characters sit down to play webdip..
Who would win if the following characters sat down to play diplomacy.
Tyrion, Tywin, The Spider, Little Finger, Sansa, Pycelle, Danerys. ??

Tyrion and Tywin both have a strong objective eye and would be pragmatic favorites, while the Spider has to use pawns to achieve his goals. on a board full of wolves he would be dragged down by what principle he has. Little finger might surprise me, but as for the other i'm not too impressed. Sansa still has to mature as a strategist... Snow or Rob would be better picks. Meanwhile Pycelle's act would fool nobody, and Danerys is nothing out of her blood right. Diplomacy would tear her apart.

Prediction: Tyrion and Tywin play to a stalemate with the Spider along the stalemate line impossible to eliminate.

I don't think Robb would be able to counter a backstab. Just a hunch.
JamesYanik (548 D)

Robb was mostly blinded by love which caused him to stutter, this board is taking place in a vacuum i'm assuming.

Danerys could backstab Robb if she lures him in first.

I get the strong sense that Sansa would be better at the game than either of her kingly brothers. Bran would see all the moves ahead of time though.
CroakandDagger (706 D)

Littlefinger would win. He'd ally with Sansa early and she'd trust him to get them both through it.

Why wouldnt samwell tarly be one of the players? Id rank him way above pycelle
TrPrado (456 D Mod)

Let's be realistic. Everyone would willingly lose to Podrick.
Dovale (544 D)

Little Finger would do very well for himself in his first games because he'd be overlooked, and then very poorly in his next games, because people would wisen up quickly. Might favor aliance with Sansa.

The Spider isn't too ambitious, would probably settle for draws or even just survival, more often than not.

Tyrion would be a very well-rounded player. Tywin would be play like Tyrion, except he'd have a greater tendency to play favorites - he'd be more likely to carry aliances and animosities over games.

Pycelle would ally with Tywin or maybe even Tyrion, but would be stabbed for his trouble and never see it coming.

Daenerys is too rash and none of those other players actually care for her. She'd be the first to go.

illegal move. Diplomacy boards are not dissimilar to Ouija boards: burn them and you're cursed.

I would go with the night king. Every unit that disbands on the board becomes one of his.
Ogion (4263 D)
31 Jul 17 UTC
The again, my money is that the series ends with the night king having done his job and ridding westerns of the andals. Finally scene, him freezing the iron throne with a touch and it shattering.

Or who do do worse in DIP.

Ned , The Sparrow, Tomen, Renly, Khal Drogo, Mance , The Night King.

Mance united 100 000 wildlings. And the night king may still win. Who knows.

Little Finger and Sansa would ally and attack Tyron. However Danyrs would backstab little finger and rescue Tyrion. They woyld emerge into the mid game in good shape. The other side of the board wold be chaotic, leading to a Tyrion or Danrys solo or a 3 way
JamesYanik (548 D)
01 Aug 17 UTC
ever since last episode, i think we've been putting too much faith in Tyrion and Daenrys. We need to add the Lannisters back onto the map, if this is truly a battle of the best.

Why was my support move blocked here?
http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=201965&turn=11&mapType=large
I'm kind of a noob so this might be a dumb question.
I'm playing as France. The relevant bit is the move the army at Kiel support move to Denmark from Heligoland Bight. This fails because of Germany's move to Kiel from Munich, but Munich can't move there since it's being dislodged. Shouldn't my support move work since the Munich army is being attacked?

I think I'll go to London from 6-10 August..
.. and perhaps longer if I can find a cheap place to stay or it's too fun to leave. I know that some of my webdip friends (and other webdippers probably) are from London, so if anyone wants to message me to see if we can meet up, exchange tips or even let me stay at your place for a while, please feel free! I'd love to meet some of you in person.

Build and retreat turns
Should 100% be put together they involve next no strategy and are quite frankly boring. I think the reason that this isn't the case as it could be confusing how ever a bit of graphic design would fix that e.g BUILD in bold and underneath that are build options and under that RETREAT in bold and under that are your retreat options

Is that allowed in the rules? Ie. in an anonymous game, Italy is betrayed by Russia, so posts a link to an image posting site which shows the chat between the two? It seems like it shouldn't be but I can't see where it's prohibited.

Ghost rating question
I read the explanation on the GR website. I get that eliminating players in WTA improves the GR gain.
Do I understand correctly that an effort was made to make the GR score in SoS games based on centre count, but not implemented ultimately? So one should still kill off small powers (at the expense of centres elsewhere) to improve GR gains?

The voting buttons
I'm not entirely the "cancel" button does. It seems to have no propose to me. But one button I do recommend is a "kick" button for inactive players as they severely slow the game down. Of course, be a minimum time or number of turns before it's an option.
