There has been alot (more than usual) hostility, ad hominems, condescension, just general douchebaggery lately. I thought maybe humanizing it a bit would help, there was a thread like this in the past and it was a great success.
If a fleet in Edinburgh is support holding a fleet in the Norwegian Sea, and the fleet in the Norwegian Sea is moving to Norway (to counter a possible move to norway) and the fleet in the Norwegian Sea 1) is bounced out of Norway while 2) a fleet attacks the Norwegian Sea with one other supporting unit, will the fleet in Norwegian Sea be dislodged or not? It's 2 vs. 2 in Norwegian Sea, but the fleet there has a move order, which cannot be executed.
Defeated in a game which was won by a later banned player...
... is there any chance to get my bet/points back or what happens with the points the multi player gets? I have to admit that only one player of the game got banned so he might have not cheated in this game. But I'd like to know in general what happens with the finished games in which cheaters were involved...
What virtues or actions could be considered to be in the spirit of sportsmanship, and what against it. Do you have someone who could be nominated to be in one category or other. Braking the rules of the site is not to be considered part of anti-sportsmanship, so only legal actions can be named.
Is it possible to draw a game with a clear stalemate line in which one nation has refused to draw even though the same exact moves have been made by everyone for many turns? And there is clearly no way to break the lines besides an NMR or an attack between the allied powers which has not happened in years and will not happen since it is a WTA.
That one mafia posted made me laugh out loud. Sometimes my girlfriend sees me writing in this forum. She can't believe the things we talk about, and she does not see the point (she also does not get the game Diplomacy).
Also from XKCD. If you go to wikipedia and click random article to get any article that isn't a stub, and you keep clicking the first link that appears in the main body text of each article (ie. not in brackets) you'll eventually end up at the article for philosophy, no matter which article you started with.
