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.

Amazon Fundraiser
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.

Need to write mine up. Suffice to say that game was pretty epic. And not in the 15-year-old-everything-is-epic way either, I mean Trojan War, Battle of Thermopylae, etc. epic.

Webdiplomacy Tournaments?
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 :]

Ghost rating
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?

You moving up this month draug?

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

I may as well, still have a 60% win draw ratio.

@YJ - Not sure. Depends on how my draws worked out GR wise.
Yellowjacket (835 D (B))
26 Nov 11 UTC
dont draws always improve your GR? Or is it dependent on your expected result? I only glanced at the formula enough to get a general idea.
Draugnar (0 D X)
26 Nov 11 UTC
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.
Yellowjacket (835 D (B))
27 Nov 11 UTC
OK, that makes sense, thanks guys. It's all about the expected result then.

It may get delayed, but TGM always computes them for the month. Once the problem gets fixed, he'll run a set of November numbers and then a set of December numbers.
