There used to be a time when I used to keep refreshing my home page to see what was new on the forums. Now there's just so much trash talk and so many muted threads/people that my forum column on the home page is just empty. Screw you trolls. You ruined my webdip experience.
Hi forum! I'm in two games right now and will drop down to 0 pretty soon. I'd like to start a new game with those interested. It will be: WTA, non-anon (preferred), 2-day phases, 25 buy-in. Please post interest below. I'll set up the game next week (likely), and if we generate enough interest, maybe multiple games.
Since ti seems like there are some comic book fans on here I was wondering if anyone else was contemplating going to this: http://www.amctheatres.com/movie-news/2012/03/amc-theatres-presents-the-ultimate-marvel-marathon
Hey - bought the 360 for Christmas and love it...except I miss multiplayer gaming from my endless years of PC gaming. What good 360 games are there -- and would there be interest in settingupa league of some sort? (LOVE my NCAA football, if you need a beat down...)
I've messaged the password to all of you and Geo. Also, do PM in you preference lists for the finals to him. For a quick recap on how the lists work, see threadID=799853 again, and post for clarifications here.
As before, join all three games at once (don't stagger). Remember to message Geo for queries after the games start, NOT me, because I'm playing as well. Any information leakage can and will be used against you :-D
Actually, if you guys would send them to lytle dot zack at gmail dot com that would be great. It appears some of your PMs rolled off before I'd ever logged on to read them. You can also send them to the webdip mod email if you prefer.
So I'm doing this now. Can someone explain to me what happens if two people have the same preferences in their list? The old thread doesn't seem to touch on this.
Say two players (One & Two) have AFR, Player (Three) is the only one that first-picked F, and Player (Four) is the only one that first-picked R. So Three gets France Four gets Russia What do One and Two get?
Just a question. How did you decide to allocate nations? Because i got the one i called third for the second game (meaning absolutely dont want to have) in game three. I thought the meaning of the system was to get the nations your good with, so if it doenst fit, why dont give one of the other nations? In the other two games, i got what i asked for, so i dont want to complain to loudly, but because this go's against the meaning of the allocation, i do wonder if this was the only way to fix things.
The problem is (and I already pointed that out in the semis), that the allocation is still quite a bit random if you are unlucky. For example, I got the nations ranked 1, 4 and 7 of my personal preference list in the semis (as average as it gets).I got the one I wanted least (and obviously put on the triple choice) in one of the games where I didn't even choose it, simply because the two I wrote down were already on somebody else' list, so we both didn't get them, and got a random one instead.
Today is Palm Sunday....on Friday we mourn the death of the greatest man to walk the Earth. Though He was both God and yet man. For those of you who do not realize the sheer magnitude of God's Love and sacrifice through this gesture of Grace, I would like for you to go out, purchase a Bible, and read the whole thing.
And the Bad News Just Keeps Marching In For Eden...
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nflpa-warns-players-may-face-criminal-charges-bounty-155246283.html Even if charges aren't brought against any players...wow, now they need lawyers? More and more, the Raiders are seriously in jeopardy of losing that "dirtiest team" mantle, fair or not, to the Saints...that SB win isn't looking as clean anymore (which is a shame, to be fair...)
A former researcher at Amgen Inc has found that many basic studies on cancer -- a high proportion of them from university labs -- are unreliable. C. Glenn Begley identified 53 "landmark" publications -- papers in top journals, from reputable labs -- for his team to reproduce. 47 were frauds.
At what point does it become bad form to not draw or cancel because of NMRs/CDs? It seems like it is almost inevitable to have at least one cd in live games, but is it bad to profit because of that and push on for a solo despite all the other players voting for a draw/cancel?
WebDiplomacy and The Final Crusade? (Game Proposal/Invite)
I think it's safe to say one of our most discussed/popular/maddening discussion topics here on the threads has been religion--one vs. another, atheism vs. theism, discrepancies between definitions of those identities (see: SC and I having a near-Jewish Civil War) so...anyone up for a game? Represent your denomination/branch of agnosticism/branch of atheism, we'll chat...have some wine...last players standing "win" The Last Crusade...? ;)
