Liberals are even worse than conservatives
The left should be focused on abolishing nationhood and class. Not microaggressions and compromises like minimum wage.

Remove Diplomacy phase as a variant
The reason I want a variant without the diplomacy phase is because we already have very long phases, most being a day, and I find the extra diplomacy time is a bit excessive.

How to start the game without it canceling
So I've been waiting for five days with six players to start a game, and as soon as it starts, I refresh and it says it's been canceled. Says I did not reach the limit of seven players. How do we actually start playing, after the waiting period is over?

Question about moves in game - Fall of the American Empire IV
Sorry for being a newbie, but as a fan of Diplomacy, I was really happy to find this site. My questions about movement - Is there an app or software so you can set up these variant maps locally and model moves/situations? Immediate question for my current game: On the Fall of the American Empire IV map, can I move a fleet from Manawut to Ungawa?

I'm reluctant to accuse anyone of multi-account shenanigans or outside communication, but something seems a bit amiss in this game. It's full gunboat, no messaging at all, but somehow one player just convoyed another player's army across the North Sea.That's a hell of a guess.

Civil Disorder?
What does it mean when a player goes into civil disorder? Obviously happens when they don't play a turn, but does anything happen or is it just to notify the group that the player missed a turn?

Second Opinion on company name
Hey guys,
My company is called Broad Expert and someone recently asked me if a native English speaker would initially associate Broad with 'wide' in a literal sense, rather than the intended association with a broad expertise. The question of whether the name is proper use of English was also brought up.
Thoughts?

Length of Time

Deeply_Dippy (410 D)

Hi Maltir.

I see you're new around here so welcome.

That's a very hard question to answer. There will be an arithmetic average but I've no idea what it is.

From my own experience (limited though that may be), I would say that a typical game rarely ends before 1908 but won't usually get as far as 1918. Of course, there will always be exceptions to that but I'd say that's the ball-park.

I mean I could pull this, but it honestly wouldn't be that useful, and it would be a pain to calculate. If enough people are curious I'll try and gather this later this week.
CommanderByron (869 D (S))

We can probably get a pretty general idea of everyone who is interested takes their last 10 completed game and posts the average end year.
example:
1910
1907
1911
1907
1915
1908
1911
1911
1908
1909

meaning my average game last between 1909-1910
CommanderByron (869 D (S))
22 Aug 17 UTC
or maybe we should post the decimal 1909.7

That is turns, so yes.
jmo1121109 (3802 D Mod)

What I don't know is if it includes a turn for a skipped retreat phase. If nobody had a retreat that may or may not include that in the count.

A_Tin_Can (2249 D)

If those are turns from the database, they're flattened after builds and retreats, so it doesn't include them.
CommanderByron (869 D (S))
22 Aug 17 UTC
So it just counts the diplomacy phases? If so 1909.7 is pretty close to the reality.
