After how many times Jurassic Park has failed why is there still investors?
How many times has this place failed or expeditions to it have failed? Seems like the liability lawsuits alone wouldve ensured that park wouldnt have ever been remade.

Remove the no orders/saved/ready icons
There are 10 minutes to go and still !! is shown next to a country. It's probably going to NMR. This allows countries around it to make moves that they normally wouldn't confident that the sensible supports and moves to SCs won't take place. Which unbalances the game.

If the icons were removed then it is less obvious that an NMR is about to happen. Is there a reason for the icons that I'm missing?

CD vs NMR
I'm looking at my CD's and NMR's, and I noticed that in one game that I had a Civil Disorder, it gave me 12 NMR's, another CD 3 NMR's, and then the rest of my CD's I have 0 NMR's. Can anyone explain how this works and why there's such a huge discrepancy on this? And is this also a "double jeopardy" against my Reliability Rating to count NMR's and CD's from the same game? This part has always confused me. Thanks!

Labour did a full coalition deal with our weird centrist version of UKIP, so that'll be interesting. Greens to make up the numbers with confidence and supply in exchange for policy concessions and ministers outside of cabinet. I for one am cautiously optimistic about the coalition of chaos.

Refugees.. Does Uganda treat refugees better than many wealthy Nations ?
More refugees from South Sudan entered Uganda in the last 12 months than entered Europe. Uganda allows them to enter, to work, gives many a small plot of land to farm. To appease locals in regional areas where refugees settle the Government allocates 30% of aid to local communities. My own Nation, Australia, a relatively wealthy nation treats some refugees well, but others with harsh treatment, incarceration in detention camps.

I like the way ATC gets about with Austria.. In three years he's attacked Germany, France, Russia and now Italy, taking Tunis.
MajorMitchell (986 D)

But in the Spring 04 move uclubb, or uclabb, I forget the exact spelling, with Turkey has attacked a vulnerable Austria, taking Rumania and Serbia, and with a fleet in Albania, looks set to get either Trieste of Budapest as well in the Autumn move. See what happens when everyone is nice to Turkey, sooner or later the beast reveals his true nature.
MajorMitchell (986 D)

Autumn 04 Retreats. Well uclabb with Turkey has speared Austria wickedly, taking Trieste and Budapest as well as Serbia and Rumania, so Turkey grows from six sc's to ten sc's. ATC trusted uclabb and has been betrayed, but uclabb has put himself in a position to get a solo win, so it's clear that uclabb has decided that attacking Austria was necessary in order to move towards a solo win.

Poor old ATC, he's getting a hiding. Captainmeme with France might be a good chance to solo this game.. apparently the way "through Munich to fight Turkey" is first via Holland..and might be also via Kiel and Berlin.. I wait eagerly to see.. Uclabb with Turkey continues to prosper.

Mind you CM. If you hadn't bounced England in Liverpool and Edinburgh then he wouldn't be able to build the new unit for Berlin. Cannot figure out uclabb's "retreat" style of play that move. But there's a lot I cannot understand with this game
captainmeme (484 D Mod)
Mon 06 Nov UTC
Thanks for the commentary, MM. It was fun & interesting to read your thoughts as the game was going on.

Uclabb's retreat style was an attempt to solo against a stalemate line. He knew that England and I could hold him at 17 very easily if we worked together by forming the MAO-Spa-Mar-Mun-Ber-StP line, so he was never going to solo if he just pressed on. By giving me Tunis he gave me the opportunity to go for the solo (by taking Ber, Scandinavia & StP), but if I'd done so, either I wouldn't have had the units to hold Tunis, or Gold would have thrown him Munich/StP and he'd have won the game.

It was a fun game to watch. Despite appearances at times, it seems that you and Goldfinger do "love each other long time" ( ho ho ) uclabb did very well with Turkey, but Turkey suffers when it gets bigger from the tyranny of distance, it's home sc's where it raises new units are so far from the centre, there's often a two, three year delay before new units can be used to lunch into Germany for example. Whereas France has an advantage in generally being able to deploy units more quickly to the "scene of the crime".
ATC's first few years with Austria were surprisingly adventurous, but he paid a heavy price when uclabb moved on him. Still you cannot blame uclabb, opportunity like that doesn't come around often for the poor blighter with Turkey. Uclabb was lucky in that there was never an effective alliance pair out of Russia, Austria and Italy who formed and went after him in a determined way.
I'd like to express sympathy for Tom Bombarding with Germany, but I'd be lying through clenched teeth. Watching his demise helped exorcise some personal demons of mine that he gave me in a game when be had Germany and I had Russia. Losing Munich to Austria at the get go was a most unusual occurrence for anyone with Germany. Hope it gives him psychological scars for ages..LoL ( just kidding.. or am I ?).
Thanks to all players for the entertainment.
The latest game I am spectating is the 31,500 point gunboat game. I've signed up for Demon Overload's gunboat competition, and I virtually never play grubby gunboat games. So I'm studying up on it. Can't be that difficult, surely. LoL.

MajorMitchell (986 D)

Thanks for indulging me & allowing me to make posts about your game. Maybe that could be a new feature, we could discuss the idea. Obviously the restrictions like not commenting about gunboat games while they are in progress has to stay. I might suggest it in that how to improve WebDiplomacy thread.
Players who have an interest in giving commentary on games apply to be "recognised commentators" ..so there is a screening process. Commentators agree to adhere to certain rules, eg no offensive language, they have to have played a minimum number of games, be ranked at least at say the top two levels, or be given a dispensation on that in the screening process.
