New Game: The Bum's Rush
New game! http://phpdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=11489
This is a 12-hour game with a 10-point buy-in. It's for people who are actually going to play, tired of players going into CD...

Quick Question
I havent been on the site to play in months, some of you may remember, most wont, I wasnt very prominant. I take it there is a troll problem. Is kestas still with us? And if anyone would care to, could someone please list for me and explain the variants for game play, such as Press, Touch, and UN/Treaty? Thanks all, much obliged to those that give serious answers.

Rule Query- supporting a rival position against oneself.
Say that you have armies in Galicia, Silesia and Tyrolia. Your opponent has an army in Bohemia.

If you move Tyrolia to Bohemia supported by Galicia, but use Silesia to support hold your rival, what happens

I'm retiring from phpDip.
As soon as all three of my games complete, I'm retiring. The forum sucks with all these trolls, and the way NMRs/CDs work can leave you screwed because a turn will run without real orders from a player.

I'm through and sticking with the slower but more respectable Judges.

I don't think it would be too hard (say I because it's been many years since I wrote meaningful code) to automatically pause a game when a player goes CD instead of processing the orders. That would be the best thing since the best thing since sliced bread.

That all being said: Draugnar, I hope you reconsider your plan to leave the site. The community benefits from experienced players of all different playing styles and you've certainly added your unique voice to the forums.
Draugnar (25 D X)
09 Jun 09 UTC
But the damage may already be done by the time they go CD. Some means of offeringthe position up for rpelacement would be better, so no NMRs would be recorded.
On the subject of Moderators, does anybody else think it would be totally awesome to watch a game played between all the admins on this site? the mods, kestas, ghostie, and I guess some lucky random player would get to play. Not SOW style, I personally don't like that, but does anybody else think it would be cool for the admins to all play each other?

@Draugnar: what would be the damage if the moves are not processed and the new player gets something like 24 hours to get into the game?

The mechanics of this are best discussed on the developer forum (http://forum.phpdiplomacy.net). If I remember correctly there's already been a bit of discussion on how to handle such situations.
Draugnar (25 D X)
09 Jun 09 UTC
I think allowing the new player a 'phase' to get in would be appropriate. 6 hour game, give them 6 hours. 25 hour, give em 25. You get the idea. It's better than the damage done to the game by having a drop essentially elimnate the dropped player's allies.

We seem to agree. Happiness all around.
fortknox (2059 D)
09 Jun 09 UTC
it still requires more than 1 move to go CD, so you already have 2 phases without orders

Right, which is why we need a transfer capability to transfer an active account to a replacement player.

I wish the point system was different. For example, you get a point for playing a game from start to finish. CDing loses you a point or maybe two or maybe five. Picking up a CD doesn't get you anything, at least with respect to these points.

Then make different categories. Anyone could play a rookie game. You have to have 10 or more points to play in an intermediate game. Then add maybe one or two other levels, you don't want too many.

And a limit on how many games you can play at a time based on how many games you have finished. If a long time player wants to play in 20 games at once, why not. But rookies should be limited to 4 games or so.

Seems like that would cut out a lot of multi-accounting as well as punish rookies that just stop playing a game that doesn't go well. Teaches them to finish if they want to move up the ladder.

Akroma's right. This message having been publicly posted is just making the trolls think they've won.

Jon's right also: you will be missed.

Alderian, that's a pretty good idea. What do you think the effect would be if we changed it from that to, "Picking up a CD doesn't get you anything... but if you pick up a CD and then drop out, you don't lose any" (you know, because it would have been CD anyway).

"And a limit on how many games you can play at a time based on how many games you have finished. If a long time player wants to play in 20 games at once, why not. But rookies should be limited to 4 games or so."

I like this rule a lot.

I don't like the idea of "if you pick up a CD and then drop out, you don't lose any," because of what happens when idiots constantly pick up and then drop out.

I don't have a really good solution, but I wish there were stricter rules against people who go CD - or at least escalating punishments for each successive CD.
Draugnar would miss me too much if he left.
Alderian (2423 D (S))
09 Jun 09 UTC
@aoe3rules, continuing what pootercannon said, it may actually be worse if you pick up a CD and drop then drop it.

There was that post recently where a game had 5 different people "play" France. The original person and then four others who picked it up and then went CD driving the other players nuts having to wait and wait and wait for the NMR.

Moderators: please draw game ID 9851 (de gualle/hitler)
All active players voted for a draw some time ago. A single player, with only one unit, has not voted as they have not been on the site since the beginning of may. The game was paused due to banned player, and also this same player has not voted to unpause.

Can you please force the draw? I dont think anyone is interested in the game anymore
