Why does the timer NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL TIME LEFT?
I noticed in a live game yesterday that a couple of times I changed my moves and hit "save" when the clock still said 2 seconds or something like that, but I got the "game has moved on, please refresh" thingy.
What is up with that? Why not have the clock actually indicate how many seconds you have left to get in your moves. Sometimes that can make a difference in a live game.
Abgemacht has given his blessing for a carrier pigeon variant wherein players communicate via carrier pigeons. Who's up for it? I have six little birdies just waiting to fly the coup with diplomatic intrigue! Just think of the metagaming possibility when you intercept someone else's bird!
Would anybody be interested in a game that was played telepathetically. The basic rules are as follows, Anonymous players, Public Thoughts:- 1) I set up the game 2) I ask players to think of the moves they would like to make by a certain time 3) I then update the game using magic dust 4) To avoid any in-game tension and uncertainty I could let people know the result before we start. If you want to play just think about it and I'll include you in the game.... WARNING: No meta-gaming i.e. thinking about the moves other people should be making.
I would, but my brain is a scary mess and your liable to interpret moves like "F Mar-Hell and back" with "A Ber - Mun with a stop by the Hofbrauhaus." and then get "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti".
Yeah, it means I have a 50/50 shot at doing OK. I've got one game where my Austria is the big dog on the map and another where I am dealing with a juggernaut right now. so coin toss. That's good enough for me to throw money at.
No, no it's the European swallow that can't carry coconuts. The African swallows can, but they are non-migratory. Remember however, that two European swallows could always have carried it between them on a piece of string.
Lol zultar. Why havent i been in a game with you yet? Lets start a non anon game, team up and destroy everyone else by first taking screen shots of our enemies plans and sending them to each other via carrier pigeon.
guys we have all obviously lost this debate, so lets all pretend to be drunk but still post long intricate messages on the forums with little to no grammar mistakes in a language that we claim is not our primary language.
I'm butt-hurt and I want you too look at this game: gameID=85903
Germany and Russia are one and the same, because there is no reason to go relentlessly after someone, without gaining much or enough, exposing your entire back to the biggest power in the game, granting him the win.
So, I was thinking, the one nice thing about the Cold War was that NASA got tons of money to just be awesome. People were excited about science and we developed a lot of cool technology. Why can't we have another Space Race? Surely China or India would be up for the challenge.
I was wondering - without insisting on an immediate verdict - whether my email & thread about the sending of screenshots had been taken into consideration? If it is, I'll shut up again, just curious whether it is in the pipeline.
Because there are those who complain about a lack of Diplomacy Topics
One of the weakest parts of my game is that I don't go to other players with plans, but rather listen to plans, and adapt my strategy. Do you prefer to engage first, or listen to others? And how would you suggest I improve upon actively engaging with other players with ideas rather than waiting for them to come to me?
Apparently, you cannot mute a banned player. I discovered this when I tried muting bullshiot threads to make scouring the forums for an old thread easier. Curious indeed. By one's banning, they become like the mods: immutable.
After nearly 3 months of rigorous discipline in not responding to political bolshoi threads (from both sides) on the forum I've had a relapse. Help me Randall!!! http://xkcd.com/597/ http://xkcd.com/386/
