Those Times When Someone's Opinion Is...Just Wrong...(NFL QBs?)
...as I'm sure mine often is? ;) Well, here's a multi-million dollar example: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/joe-flacco-thinks-nfl-best-quarterback-005500221.html Yeah...I like Flacco as a QB, I honestly do...but in a league with Peyton, Brady, Eli, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees...for starters...no. NOT the best in the NFL. But...who is--rank the QBs?
message to all special games hosts who contacted me recently
Apologies in advance for being a prima donna and taking forum space for my personal needs here, but I legitimately let a couple of invitations fall off my messages page without replying in time because of being ridiculously busy.
I Personally didnt liked England, older france and New France for leaving the game , Moreover Italy is highly critisized. I think Austria played good and Germany is very good for me or its Non Aggression!
CDs are annoying, and I understand the desire to draw.... not often have I been able to get a live game at this time of night, so when Italy CDed, I bit my lip and played on, thanks for the game all. thank you Russia for your peace in our north, Turkey, thanks for keeping Russia busy in the south, France #1, why?... #2 thanks for the additional points in our draw, Italy, man-up! you should be penalized for not playing, tough luck E, and then Austria, well played, had those draw votes disappeared you surely would have gone on to win
S 1901: I put in my moves, and of course Italy NMR's. Great. F 1901: Preparing to take Venice next year. Luckily Turkey attacks Russia, so I'm fine. .... 1902 - 1904: I take all of Italy and Tunis while Turkey conquers Sevastapol. Now I'm quite concerned about a Turkish stab, but seeing as I cannot do much about it I move north and west. 1905-1906: France CD's so I convoy into Spain, nice. For some reason Germany doesn't move to Marseilles so I get in, as well as move fleets into the North Atlantic. S 1907: Turkey stabs. Unfortunate (I had hoped he would hold that off while I took down Germany to reduce the draw), so I defend myself while making sure I do not lose ground to Germany. F 1907: Drawn.
@Those who NMR and CD: Shame on you. @Turkey: Nice working with you, and as I said, hope you didn't stab so early, that just forced the 4-way. @Germany: I think you didn't take full advantage of the NMRs around you. In the end I attacked you before you were prepared, and honestly if Turkey had not helped with a stab you might have been eliminated. @Russia: You did the best you could, but maybe, you could have *not* kept attacking me? You left me no choice but to support Turkey.
yep those fleets of yours were very fast! :) France # one was very annoying, I shyed away from lungeing at his NMRs cause he seem to come and go, and I didn't want to get caught, even France # 2 was NMRing, did # 1 buy back in? I made a critical error when taking back Munich, of not moving Den-Kiel... nice to get a live game in at this time of night!
Elites and (Reasonably Highly Rated) Scum Public Press Game
Sarg's thread made me realize that I've never played public press and would rather like to. Anyone in the top 100 GR is welcome to join, though I can increase the limit if we need more, and people in the top 50 should probably join Sarg's first (not trying to poach players here). Details are negotiable.
As the Hobbies thread seems to indicate, we have a few writers among us. Let's compose something together, shall we?
Rules: 1) Limit yourself from 1 to 3 sentences. 2) No double posts. If you make a typo, the next poster just has to roll with it. 3) No digs at other users. If I have to spell this one out explicitly for you, then don't bother posting in my thread. 4) Just have fun with it!
The Other day, King Atom professed the salvation of jesus Christ. Since then, he has talked agout fucking men in the ass. I wonder....how many believe in King Atom's ass-fucking God, Jesus Christ, who apparently is an ass-fucking homosexual??? NOT that there is anthing wrong with that....
I'm sure we all have interests besides Diplomacy. What are they? I've started making lamps out of glass bottles. You can see 2 finished ones here: https://plus.google.com/photos/112097194861235770883/albums/5726520958325469041?authkey=CNCVuouql4XN8gE What about the rest of you?
We tried this on vdip a while ago but It never really worked out, I still think its a cool concept though and was wondering if people here would like to try it. The idea is a classic game where you aren't allowed I lie. That doesn't mean you won't misdirect, or mislead people, but you can't outright lie.
My wife has reached full term and could go into labor any day now. So I figured I would go ahead and try and get sitters now while I have time (so that others don't have to wait later). The problem is I have no idea how the process works. What steps do I need to take?
Italian A Tyrolia to Munich has got to be one of the worst early game moves.
Unless this is carefully arranged bilaterally, I cannot possibly see any merit to this whatsoever. Yet I've been hit by it not once but multiple times recently, so clearly someone disagrees... so can someone tell me what the point of this move is?
http://the-diplomat.com/2012/04/04/signs-of-a-new-tiananmen-in-china/?all=true The title's misleadingly provocative, but this is an interesting analysis of how China's political system is facing real challenges.
