A gunboat variant where you could see who had joined but did not know who played each country. That would allow you to screen who you played with and could avoid obvious cheating red flags. Just a thought.
I thought of a good idea, arrange a face to face game via Skype or gmail chat. It would be fun and ann another dimension to the game and make it close to a real face to face except yo arn't next to one another. Post about ideas thoughts or interest.
@TheJok3r Yes, I was just trying to stay alive. I needed England to recover to move on Russia, and I wanted Turkey to be done with Italy and stab Russia so I could recover. That meant tying you down, there was nothing else I could do. If I'd let you off the hook, you'd have collected Belgium and Holland, and that would be the end of me.
He put up a pause, so I assume some emergency came up. And he resigned on the move where he could have possibly secured himself a solo. But a well-played game by MichiganMan. I saw the open and thought I might stand a chance with an Anti-Russian opening, but the serbia play was well timed. I dislike Austria in gunboat--if Italy turns on you you are generally up a creek.
Surviving in WTA might as well be defeat. Seeing how Russia was getting close to a solo, it seems much better had you just gone and held the stalemate line as opposed to taking my centers and letting him walk through you. And had I been able to attack England, I could have prevented Turkey from owning my ass in the South.
Meh....Well played game by Turkey and Russia. I screwed up bad in S02. Screwed over Italy...I'm still a noob in training...Learning every game.
I'm playing in a few anon games (well, more than a few), and I've noticed that the game has changed over the years. It got better for a long time, then towards the end if this year, something has happened that has taken some fun away.
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?
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...
