HOW TO PLAY THIS
The instructions did not mention this scenario: If you attack a province that someone occupies, but that someone is moving their unit in that select province to a different province that is unoccupied, their move cancels and they have to defend their province which is being attacked right? I know this to be true based on my own experiences, but I wanted to confirm.

Private game replacement rules
I've been told by a deadbeat admin that is losing a private game that he has the ability to pick any replacement he wants and he asked someone who I'd rather slit my wrists than play with. There's a reason I play passworded games and I think there should be a rule where you need the consent of people in your private game before picking a replacement.

Playing with less than 7 players
I'm just starting a game to play with a few friends of mine, and because there will only be four or five of us, I was wondering if the game would actually start if we only had 4 players, or if it would just cancel and refund our bets. If it does cancel, is there a way for us to play a game on here with only the four of us?

Why aren't my games available?
I am new to both Diplomacy and this site and I am currently in 2 games. One as France and one as Germany. But the turn timer rolled over and when I came back to view what happened the France game, it wasn't in my game list. What happened?

If details help, it had classic in the name, started in 1901, the game turn rolled over at 2:35pm and it was anonymous players.

Joinable Games
Currently the Games window shows that there are 101 Joinable Games. However, when I select the Joinable Games tab I find only 3. There are supposedly 11 pages worth but anything after the first page is empty.

Can anyone explain this discrepancy to me?

Beginner question regarding the capture of supply centers
I thought I might find the answer to this somewhere in FAQ, but alas I could not. So, my question is: if an army/fleet moves into a territory with a supply center during the Spring, then moves out during the Fall, is that center considered yours?

Russia Strategy: Modern Variant
I have played Russia in 2 different 'Modern' games and was the first eliminated in both. How do YOU see a viable way play Russia? Care to share?
michael_b (192 D)
01 Aug 17 UTC
As it says in the description, I cannot seem to make Russia the steamrolling machine it is in the Classic variant. The creator really punishes the Russian by leaving a lone fleet in Rostov and adding MANY neighbors. I Usually get bounced out of Georgia, Sweden AND Norway. Ukraine is ALWAYS keen on an alliance but very early stabs me successfully with either Poland, Germany or Turkey's help.

yup - russia is the only nation not guaranteed a build in modern variant - only way to get is through negotiation.... agree the creator of this variant made it very tough to play

I have not seen a mo dip game where Russia, Tyrkey and UKR and Pol managed to work to gther.

UKR Russia is also a very difficult partnership to hold together.

You have to get POL or TURK onboard to kill UKR or atleast keep him occupied until you can take UKr out.

Alliances with Egypt or TURK often work well. or with poland in the early years..

UKR /RUS alliances do not often succeed.

I rarely play this variant, but did have Russia in a game and as I recall, had a game long alliance with Poland that went well. It's as much about the players as it is about countries, imho.

I've only played one game of Modern - and really it was only half a game as I subbed in for PE, but I think its really flexible in terms of alliances. Because you can build anywhere, not just your home centers, you can make some seemingly inorganic alliances work.

For example, PE as RUS attacked Ukraine early in this game: gameID=185867.
When I subbed in, Ukraine had already lost 3 of his 4 home centers but was actively helping RUS and remaining useful.

By the end he was included in the draw as a strong alliance was formed, even with UKR basically losing all his home centers right off the bat.

Overall, RUS does look tough because of having many fronts, and the possibility of getting held to no builds. But to me when you are in that situation, the key is to be the driving force behind a plan. If you are passive in your scheming, you will get the short end of the stick, and the short end of the stick looks really bad as RUS.

I recall having Russia in a classic game & I had a great alliance with a chap with Germany, but then he stabbed for a solo..most disappointing

I prefer this variant ..due to the build anywhere and the number of players. try to get into games with higher % of realibilty as NMrs CD's very quickly favour the neigbouring players.

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?

.. 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.
