playing my first game of World IX one question, starts with Iraq, Saudi Arabia etc. my eyes being fairly useless at the best of times I've been trying to work out which country it pairs up with... sorry for what must seem like a moronic question... I'd fix my eyes if I could :/
Moves question (can't believe I have to ask this -_-)
If Russia has an army in Moscow and that army moves to another center and fails. At the same time Russia moves to Moscow from StP with support from Livonia. At the same time Turkey moves from Ukraine to Moscow with support from Sevastopol. If it matters the army in Moscow is moving to Warsaw which is occupied by a German army that does not move the entire time. Who ends up with Moscow? None of the centers involved are attacked in any way besides what was described.
I have played only for two months on this site, and began with a 6 game losing streak and here I am now in the top 49%! Wow! There is such a great community here, and I am happy to be a member of this site, that is all :)
Given that it's cyber monday I think its ok to advertise this here. If you navigate to Amazon using this link: http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&tag=herndonchoirc-20 a percentage of your purchase will go to my family's high school choir. There's no hassle and you'd be doing them a big favour. Thanks.
I am interested in doing some kind of diplomacy tournament but I do not know how to get started. Also, I saw a thread about GR ratings, and I was curious how you get involved to have a GR rating. Any help would be appreciated :]
Tried to look through the forum but unearthing old posts is so cumbersome. What's the status on the current Ghost rating. I know the Ghostmaker (was that his name?) is on hiatus, but IIRC he said he would continue posting the ratings, no?
I know I am: adding a win, a draw and a survive+ should make me the highest rated with only 6 games played.. *crosses fingers*. I guess I could calculate it myself, but sounds like a lot of work. Catching up with you pros :P
You can take a loss in a draw. If your opponents are below your skill level (expected result) then you need to reduce the draw as small as possible to break even or make points and it is possible, if you have more than 6 times the GR of the #2 player) to lose even on a 2 way draw. Say you have a 600 GR and everyone else is new at 100 GR, a 2 way will be a break even. Have a 300 GR and everyone else be 100, then a 3 way is a break even. 200 and 6x100 makes a 4 way be a break even.
@yellowjacket, that's actually not quite accurate. While your record is good, your competition hasn't been the highest quality so a new player who got in on a draw with a few top 50 players or even pulled off a win would end up with a higher gr. Just pointing out that out in case you didn't know. That's why so many middle players like to play with the top players.
