Just a suggestion for the site. You should make it possible for the player to set their time zone for the times. Times are in UTC-4, and where exactly is that? I don't claim to know anything, but isn't that in the Atlantic?
@RLumley - Even if your opinion is right, that doesn't mean keeping quiet is wrong. Your argument is fallacious. In short, it is a false dichotomy in that you believe there is only one way to be right and the other way is, by default, wrong. Point in fact, it is not wrong to keep your opinion to yourself when doing so harms no one and it is actually wrong to state your opinion when it will do more harm than good.
ethics question. is it right for an experienced player to take over a leaderless country in an existing game which appears to have been set up as a beginners game? or is it ok to join as long as you don't win?
In anonymous live games, I find myself doubting everyone whenever I lose. But I realize that it is probably not the case that there are cheaters in nearly every game I play, but there are probably cheaters in some. So, what is the likely prevalence of cheating? My guess would be about 1 in 5 games, taking into account communicating with other players in a gunboat game or meta-gaming. Is that accurate?
game name: One Week @ A Time. game map: Classic. phase length: 7 days. joining period: 30 mins. gameID=32305 . a real strategy game. use an entire week to plan a strategy and make allies and coerce people!
I would be interested in suggestions for specific success stories coming out of the work of the UN - and any of its constituent agencies... I am not implying that I think the UN is a failure, just trying to get a list going. It is for a discussion.
