Hey, no whispering over in the corner! (Public Press In The Forum Only)
The title got cut off in the game, but this is a Public Press Only game and we'll use this thread for the press.

I'd probably be up for something like this, but the phases are too short for me.

Yeah, same here... I'll make another one with longer phases
Draugnar (25 D X)

Sorry, folks. I really like 12 hour phases. I check in the morning and in the evening and at various times throughout the day. By doing 12 hour phases, you can normally get through one real season in a day, including the winter builds after the fall. A year basically takes 2 days to run versus 4 to 5 on a 24 hour schedule.

So, Austria has decided to agressively move towards Italy. I bet someone sees that exposed flank as an opportunity to grab up his SCs from behind him.

New to the game, didn't even know what "(Public Pre" meant. Will play by the rules now that I understand what it means!

It also appears England is staying put.
Draugnar (25 D X)
24 Feb 09 UTC
No problem. It actually got cut off by the system. Next time I'll START the name with the variant and then name it beyond that. Gunboats and Public Press are two of my favorite variants.

Hey sokolov, you get to Galicia and I'll get to Tyrolia. Then I'll support you into Vienna. Sound like a plan?
sokolov (104 D)
24 Feb 09 UTC
I am still trying to figure out what Gunboat means lol
sokolov (104 D)
24 Feb 09 UTC
Was planning on moving in that direction anyway, let's see how the next phase plays out.
Draugnar (25 D X)
24 Feb 09 UTC
Cool. As far as gunboat, that is no verbal or written communication at all. Public Press means you can chat, bet everyone gets to see it. It's easier to police these on a Judge, which has the capabilities for the various types of press built in.
sokolov (104 D)
25 Feb 09 UTC
The chat is game is certainly getting more interesting, lol

Don't you hate it when...
You masterfully played the game. Now for the epic climax just 3 more SCs, your ally believes everything you said the sucker. You plan a perfect stab and...the next phase is 3 days from now.

A game question
May a player put himself into CD (with I suppose /cd) and then take up another available (and better) position in the game as a different country?

Suppose in a game, you have four sc and a player who has eight sc drops. Can you put your country into CD, drop from the game and then take the other country’s position. Is this legal, is this poor game play, is this cheating?

Hello! Sorry to anyone else, I'm not after you.
Mahatma, could you drop me a line - I tried your email but didn't get a response.
Before anyone jumps to conclusions, its NOT anything wrong, just trying to ask him a question about one of the games he's in.

Is the "draw" strategy valid?
Some players play to win, others play to gain points. Until recently, I thought of those as WTA and PPSC. In my most recent game, I came across a player that used a "I don't go for wins, I go for draws" strategy. I found myself handcuffed by my history of playing for wins.
