The new forum system is up and running, and we're ready to let users onto it to test it as we transition to it from this forum.

Probably best if you respond there rather than here, but I guess it doesn't matter:

Why couldn't I move?
Hey I was playing Italy in this game. I tried to have my fleet convoy my army in Tuscany to Smyrna. Neither were being attacked or blocked, but I was unable to make this move. Why? Here's the link to the map: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=203295&turn=9&mapType=large

Ankara Crescent
It's been far too long since we played this variant. Anyone for a game?
ghug (4082 D (B))
Wed 09 Aug UTC
I'm in provided it's the 1991 Munich ruleset. The Melbourne convention that year was full of stuffy bureaucrats who were more concerned about rules than a fun game, and everything since has had issues with balance because people insist on accurately reflecting the fall of the Soviet Union.

I was actually planning on running the '71 rules with a few balance changes, but '91 isn't too much worse.

Are we using the 1992 Greater Lakes Summit amendments?
captainmeme (410 D Mod)
Wed 09 Aug UTC
Only outside of the Soviet area of the map. As Ghug said, a lot of the later amendments created huge balance issues around those provinces.

tbh, I think those are mostly because no one knows how to properly play Italy. Regardless, I'm happy to play an old school game. It's been a while!

Does that version allow reversals in the Caspian Sea?
captainmeme (410 D Mod)
Wed 09 Aug UTC
Cas is inaccessible under the '91 rules. Unless there's something about it in the GLSA, you'd have to move via coast all the way to Kaz to achieve a reversal. Possible, but not really viable in a high level game.

Ezio - the furthest west you can begin the game is Havana, but the map extends significantly further than that. I think someone once reached Hawaii but due to the Proximity Negotiation rules we couldn't get in contact with him, so that was never confirmed.

I should also note - we are, of course, using the standard WebDip Amendment. Any order which receives five or more +1s is invalidated.

ghug's opening makes sense because by building in Zagreb he invokes the ghug Corollary, which states that any unit built while the player is high gets a +1 modifier to any foraging rolls but the player has a roll a 20 sided die and on a roll of 5 or less the army "forgets" to move.

Could the Mod please contact me and ban this account and verify that the two accounts have never been in the same game.
