Conservatives' edumacated people iz so stooped thread
We get it. You hate smart people and those who have made the effort to educate themselves. Scientists and scholars are so elite and are all prize idiots and are nothing compared to the brilliance of high school drop outs from the "heartland".

Biggest game of all time?
Would it be appropriate/allowable to have commentary on the biggest game of all time? I ask because it is an anon gunboat game. But it seems like the type of game people could learn from like school of war.

Ghost Ratings and CD Takeovers
Do the Ghost Ratings include games where the player takes over a CD? If a player regularly takes over CDs in a more or less hopeless position does it effectively screw up the player's ghost rating?

And, finally, why do I keep taking over hopeless CDs and should I seek professional help?

Talking to other Players
Just wondering what other people think about how to communicate to other players. Some players go over the top and just write way to much, in my opinion. On the other hand there are people, like me, who keep it direct and to the point. Which way is best?

You do not have to write dissertations, but communicating every turn is important. And this includes enemies and neutrals as well as allies.

Communication with everyone is important, especially in the early game. I often choose my allies early on based on who is the most pleasant to talk to.

The most fun is when there's a bit of character coming through the chat, whether that's because people are sharing about themselves or even role-playing.

Some people prefer just to keep it brief - literally like textspeak. That's OK but it's not really diplomacy in my book.

The least fun is when no one talks.
ubercacher16 (259 D)
31 Aug 17 UTC
So the least fun is gunboat.
CAPT Brad (40 D X)
31 Aug 17 UTC
We often treat communication as if it were a discrete act, a matter of performance or lack thereof. Yet meaning cannot be separated from context. A crucial, but often overlooked, function of leadership is creating a culture in which effective communication can flourish. In truth, we live in a communication age and it’s time we start taking it seriously.
jengamaster (2030 D)

No. Gunboat can be quite enjoyable. It is games with press when no press is happening that are dismal.

I am not a very talkative man even in my real life but I like to write and speak in a complete and polite way, so I don't use abbreviations or symbols. If there is time I may enrich my text or say something over the needed for the game, after all speaking with someone at the other side of the planet and say not even a hello?

IMO, you also need to be cautious in the early part of the game. Keep it brief and make an effort not to seem too smart. Some people target the better players. If you come across as a brilliant tactician and throw around a lot of Hobby acronyms like Lepanto or Juggernaut, then people figure you for a pro and can team up against you.

^ Depends on your competition. Any private game, that probably won't matter, and sometimes people will see the knowledgeable guy as an opportunity to coast through the early game with ease.
