hypothetical changes to classic map
Ideas I have had that I thought might improve balancing. Not saying that I would advocate for all of these; they're just ideas I think about sometimes.

Does anyone want to play a game?

I'll play if it's HDV; would prefer Rulebook Press over Full Press too but it's not a deal breaker for me.

Last time I was ranked was way back in June. So I'm not going to complain about anyone not being on the current lists. You were 46 in June, which is good enough for me.

My thoughts on settings.
Non-flexible: Normal Draw Votes, 48 hours, Full Press
Flexible: Anon, SoS scoring, 200 point bet.

Anyone have any preferences on the flexible settings?
swordsman3003 (9351 D (G))
08 Nov 17 UTC
I strongly encourage draw-size scoring. I think the experience is a lot of fun when a near-death player has a lot to fight for.
JEccles (410 D)
08 Nov 17 UTC
I strongly encourage Anon.
damian (380 D Mod)
08 Nov 17 UTC
I think its about 50-50 between DSS and SoS.
With draw size scoring you have the perks of there being a lot to fight for if you're still alive because a draw is huge. On the flip slide there tends to be a lot of tiresome careful maneuvering to cut down the size of the draw at the end which can be pretty dull if you aren't involved in it.

With SoS, the advantage is that there is less incentive to cut players, which leads to some interesting diplomatic consequences. Where its much easier to convince smaller players to work with you and stay alive, since your incentive to cut them is much smaller. On the flip side there is a lot less to play for if you're a small player since you aren't getting an equal share of the draw.

Overall I don't have a strong preference, I played most of my games pre-SoS so I haven't had a chance to really explore the negotiation space that it makes available which is why I suggested it. But I don't feel strongly about it, so if you feel strongly about DSS (and everyone else is happy with that). I'm game to do DSS.

I don't change my play style based on scoring systems, so it really doesn't matter to me
I prefer DSS since I've become a purist, but I would not be totally against SoS. I think a 200 D bet would be great. Whether it's anon or not, I don't really care about, but tend to play anon more.
Ezio (1294 D Mod)

Do we have a target start date for this game, and an idea of what the rules are looking like?
damian (380 D Mod)
09 Nov 17 UTC
We've got comments from just about everyone. It sounds like DSS, 200 points, Anon, Full-Press, Visible draw votes. 48/hr.

I was going to send out invites once we hammered the details home. So I'll be PMing everyone shortly.
Wusti (834 D)
10 Nov 17 UTC
Claesar - I have tried to - last one I did was almost in protest against this by asking for +100GR players only with decent RR and it never got subbed.

People on this site only want to play with the cool kids, and once your GR falls past a certain point, you're effectively fucked.
Claesar (100 D Mod)

Humorously, the very last full press game I finished, that wasn't live, was with you Wusti. But there is clearly people interested in a game. Mine is all full up. But within this thread we have brainbomb, yourself, Valis, ChippeRock & Capt Brad.

If everyone is down to play you only need two more to get a game. :)

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!

New Zealand has a new Prime Minister
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.
