Fewer live classic games these days?
Looking back through the last couple months' completed games, it feels like there are far fewer Classic live games than there were a few years ago. Do other people have the same feeling?

I think the 1v1s are taking some people away from the classics.

There's always a bit of a drop off this time of year. That was true even when the site supported live games and they were popular.

Back in the glory days of webDip there were live games daily, and usually several in one evening. What you would do was look at the number of people logged on, and if it was near 100 or more you could set up a live game to start in 10 minutes, post a message on the forum, and be pretty sure it would fill up.

Live games sadly went into decline as people shifted from playing via desktop computers to playing via phones, as it became trickier to write a message in a hurry. Around the same time an idiotic policy to restrict live game advertising to a single thread was introduced, because of some ridiculous notion that the forum was being clogged with too many diplomacy threads. This had the effect that anyone new trying to set up a game got a public telling off for their trouble.

So, live games starting dying off, and the site leadership lost interest. Live game clubs stopped being supported, the issue with the clock not matching the phase was ignored, and the whole system collapsed into something almost as bad as PlayDip.

Now that it is easier to play on this site via mobile there's hope it may return to what it used to be. Some support from the leadership, maybe recommending a good voice to text app that can be trained to recognise European provinces perhaps, and you never know...

Usually when I have time for a game I go for a 1v1 because it is hard to find six more to play a classic. I guess that many people face this problem though I had also of the handicap of the different time zone.

Yeah, I’m hoping to use Discord to make it easier to find live games. Having played a couple I think the site is responsive enough now so long as you refresh it manually.

Arson = socially progressive
I realized that based on the cultural constraints of the criminal justice system that burning things represents the circle of life. If a forest burns down - it comes back stronger. We burned down Atlanta, it came back way cooler look at the Falcons. We accidentally burned Chicago, now its great. Lets just burn the world.

A discussion on Morality and Virtue (Paladins, Clerics)
What is the difference between a Lawful Good Cleric and a Lawful Good Paladin. Which is more unrelenting in their beliefs? Which is more likely to have sex? Are both bound by vows of celibacy? Are Lawful Good Paladins more likely to engage in religious persecution (ala Knights Templars).
