Hi, This is short notice. But Is there anyone who can be an account sitter for my account? It's got about 7/8 games on it and I will be gone for 4 days. Obviously someone trustworthy would be appreciated. PM for details, thanks :)

Game of Thrones Season 7 is terrible
So this is probably gonna make people dispise me. I wanna explain in great detail why Game of Thrones is sub-par at best at this point. Let me preface this by letting you know I am a die-hard fan. Ive read the books. I play the LCG, I am truly a GOT obsessed fan. But this is awful writing

What is "Survivors-Win Scoring"?
It appears on some old games (example: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=6869#gamePanel).

Appears really confusing, I can't figure out what is supposed to happen witht the points. Why was it removed by the way?

Biggest Pot Game in webDiplomacy HISTORY
Just as it says in the subject line. I've been tasked with helping set up the biggest point game in webDiplomacy History. Probably in part because it's way above my number of points so I'm beneath taking part myself.

It's going to be *fully* anonymous; aka no one (besides myself) will know which 7 players are in the game. If you want to take part, or have any questions about the game, PM me for the password/details. Game link here: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=205041
P.S. Yes, I agree that it's gross that the largest pot will be in a gunboat game.
P.P.S. For those to lazy to open the link, it's 48 hours, usual draw voting rules.

CapnMeme has a good point, and also if anyone really cared to find out who was in the game, could just take screenshots of the hall of fame page and note which of the top 49 suddenly go down by 4500 D
I was tasked with arranging the game as I did, sorry. Also I wonder if only 49 players can afford it. I forget if the rankings include points in games or not. I seem to remember some former site members used to set up fake games to hide their point numbers. Not sure though.

p.s. I heard it was the biggest, I didn't check.

I'd consider loan sharking for this game if the mods would both allow it and enforce repayment terms. My loan fee would be the inverse of borrowers win/draw rate plus a 25% risk surcharge.

@slypups, your loan fee would be 100%/(22%+44%) +25% = 177% , so if i lent you 4,500 points, you would owe me back 7,965 points after the game.

@monfils, until you demonstrate your first win or draw, your interest rate would be 100%/(0%+0%) +25% = ∞% (infinity %) , so unfortunately you would not qualify for a loan as it is highly unlikely that you can pay back an infinite number of points.

@pjmansfield, since you "totally guarantee" repayment, I would reduce the 25% risk surcharge to 15%, provided you put up sufficient collateral, such as a car or house or first-born.

Additionally, for those that cannot repay all of their points immediately after the game, points would incur a 10% monthly interest charge on the full outstanding balance, and would have to be repaid at a minimum of 100 points per month or 75% of a players monthly point balance close (whichever is greater), until paid in full.

Finally, a note to the mods: I will not both play in and loan-shark this game. The risk of losing so many points by playing is too high without the extra 25% risk premium that I can earn through loan sharking.

Good luck players! PM me your loan applications ;p
