Anyone still interested in having their signature added to the CREATOR OF DIPLOMACY's birthday card needs to send me a message ASAP. Even if you can't get me something handwritten, send me an email with your location.
So, I'm going to buy my first smartphone soon. I think I've narrowed it down to the Razr or the iPhone. The razr's hardware really trumps the iPhone but the iPhone is, well, the iPhone. Any thoughts or suggestions?
What is the mods general opinion on the following subject?
One of our mods <*cough*>abgemacht<*cough*> has just stated that outside of the game deals (threats, bribes, etc.) aren't "a big deal" to him and he wouldn't do anything about them. I have a problem with this. What about the other mods? How do you all feel? Is this a tolerable activity?
It depends on the mods and how the player responds to the mods inquiries. There have be multi cases where the mods let them pick an account and banned the others, but they were watched closely to make certain they didn't return to their old ways.
Draugnar knows I'm just giving him a hard time. But we do handle everything on a case-by-case basis, so discussion of moderator procedure on the public forum might cause expectations from us that we certainly can't promise.
I have noticed that there tend to be a lot of games that have only public messaging or no messaging at all... I was wondering why people would even play this type of variation in the first place. it seems to me to be equal to playing a game of poker with only half a deck of cards...
What do you tell your enemies? And far-away lands?
I am aware, that most of the best players communicate actively and frequently with everyone on the map, no matter seemingly irrelevant or outright foe. I have some questions for you: 1. What do you discuss with the countries you are fighting? 2. What do you discuss with countries on the other side of the map?
Has anyone played this variant? How does it impact the game, overall? I can imagine the short-term consequences for France, Germany, and Italy. I'm more asking about the indirect consequences for E,R,A,T, and if there are statistics on how that affects the winner. Thanks in advance!
