Turns out, world smartest people are Asians. Why would that be?
In one the numerous "political debate" threads haunting this forum, Fasces posted a list of countries by average IQ. The entire top 7 is Asian, and on 10 there is Mongolia (which is weird, because you never hear anything about Mongolia). Why do they score so well?
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=74801 The game is for trolls and semi-trolls. It is anon and global chat so will be focused on humorously trolling on one another anonymously. Then in the end we find out who's whom.
Is anyone else having a problem editing their profile, like the quotes section and the website parts specifically? I've tried a few different times and I have gotten no error message, it just doesn't update it...
Was running through some moves on Realpolitik. Why is a fleet in GoB allowed to support a fleet from Norway to St. Pete(NC)? The GoB fleet doesnt touch the North Coast. Is there a different reason for why this is allowed?
support is given to the province, not the coast - if your unit could move to the province it self, it can support a hold in that province, or a move to any coast in that promise.
The only time a coast affects a fleets ability to give support, is if the supporting fleet is parked at a coast - a fleet in STP NC would not be able to move to GoB, and thus cannot support for instance Bal-GoB, but GoB can support hold STP NC.
Because where supporting is concerned, the only factor that is relevant is whether the unit can move into the territory. Because GoB can move to St. Petersburg, it can support a move there, regardless of coasts.
In a way it makes sense when you consider that supporting is supposed to reference having an influence on the territory to help its conquering. Being on the south coast does not prevent GoB from having an influence on St. Petersburg as a whole, right?
