I'm curious to hear different takes on live game etiquette. If there are no-shows, or players miss the first phase, it seems to be that the game should be cancelled or at least a draw. However, if one player is the benefiary of said no-show, then he or she has little or no incentive to vote for a draw or cancellation, forcing all the other players to participate in a game in which he or she has a distinct starting advantage.
I am playing in "European Crisis-28" at http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=50159 , and I just tried saving my orders. It didn't work, and it gave me an error message. I would like help from one of the admins. Details replied..
Hey Babak, come join this game. You said in our EOG last night that you are much better at full press than gunboat games - you have so many points and high ratings, I would really like to see play a full press game with you.
hmm. That is a good question. Depending on when I get back tonight, I could try a game around 12 EST, but I'm not completely sure I'll be back. After that, it's going to be iffy for a while. It's hard for me to know when I have 4 hours in a row free to play a live game correctly.
Also, you get a star by your game when the pot gets big enough to put it in the top x percent of the games on the site. I'm not sure what x is, but I do know that if you get above 700 or so, the star pops up.
thanks for the invite sarg... I was busy last night so did not see this.
pw- I have played about half-a-dozen live press games in the past, but its a matter of timing more than anything else. but I will only play wta/anon live games...
I did try my hand at about 3 live gunboat games this week, got devoured as italy in the first one, and got two draws as England in the 2nd and 3rd (still lost points)... but my gunboat gaming is much weaker than my press game.
A class I want to take next fall with a very distinguised professor (Jared Diamond) has an application as a prerequisite to enrolling. I have to write a one-page paper about myself and my interests. I'm not the most humble person in the world but for some reason I'm bad at bragging in this sort of context. Any tips from the webdip community?
