When a nation keeps supporting another to win, even though it is obvious that the guy will get a solo win, is that fair/allowed? I heard that's it's not against the rules and that you get points as long as you survive.
... who was part of a watermolecule, absorbed by the root of an apple tree.. It ends up in the apple, after which it's eaten by me, and the atom ends up in the swimming pool where I was swimming and sweating..
Tell me all about the beautiful adventures this hydrogen atom has been through!
I'm curious what people feel is a good amount of time between turns to allow for a slow paced game that would still have weekly engagement (i.e. I do not want people waiting two weeks to submit orders).
So I just started playing on this site, having not really played any Dip since some PBEM a number of years ago. I joined one game as a replacement, and started two others from scratch. All three games have been horribly imbalanced due to leavers, NMRs, and suspected metagaming. How do I get in some games with reliable people? These public ones just aren't worth my time.
A player in the Lusthog games series (threadID=1210021) can no longer play, so needs replacing. If anyone would like to volunteer to replace him, or would like more info about it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Lusthog Sub' as the subject line.
What is the most ridiculous opening that you've seen go on to success? I'm talking Turkey not taking Bulgaria in the spring, England not entering any seas, etc - where a player (deliberately or otherwise) handicaps themselves. And then goes on to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
Is there a way to see last turn's orders in text form? I know it shows all moves on the map, but is there some way to see the set of orders you sent in written out for you, so you can compare it against the orders shown by the map?
I suspect 2 guys are cheating. One's good and the other's new. In the game I'm talking about one of them is supporting another to win EVEN THOUGH that'll mean that person will lose and the other will get a solo win. I did some digging and found that in another game they're playing as France and England. They are obviously allied in this game too. SOOO without further ado, if that's how ado is spelled, how do I report these bastards?
A friend of mine turned me on to this podcast. Has anyone else subscribed? His WWI series called Blueprint for Armageddon (I - V) is astoundingly good and is about the period Diplomacy is set in. Anyone else know about this? So F'ing good.
Where'd All Those People Who Cared So Much About Gaza Go?
http://news.yahoo.com/un-halts-gaza-house-repairs-saying-donors-failed-091848287.html It's almost like it's easy to talk a big game and condemn others rather than, you know, pony up and actually put your money where your mouth is? "A Hamas official warned recently that the territory could become a breeding ground for extremism unless promised reconstruction is accelerated." Because it (and Hamas) are so moderate already...
So my 7 year old brother has heard me talk about webdip a lot and now he wants to play. I told him no, there are too many crude people on this site, then realized i was one of them. I guess i could set up and account for him and let him play gunboat... i just dont want to ruin him :\
I just took a test, and I have a bunch of traits that psychopath's have. (Including not being able to smell that well) The fact I'm not alarmed by this is alarming. Oh well. Any of you guys psychopaths or sociopaths?
