What happens if all the other players CD at once in a game? That would really never happen in a classic game, but could be very possible in a 1v1 match. Does the game continue? If it does, what happens if the remaining player draws as the only player left?
On another note, what happens if the other player is eliminated in a 1v1 game, before the remaining player gets to 18? Do they still need to get to 18, or does the game end once the other players is gone?
These things were never important to know before, but now I'm curious, since it could matter with the advent of 1v1s.
This and 11 other accounts I control were created to fill slots in a large game with some friends. We wanted to play the 17 player map with less than 17 people (we are aware of balance issues with this), and our schedules are varied which disallows us from having shorter turns.
I figured we should have a thread where people who have questions about specific games can post them and ask. I got this idea quite selfishly: gameID=188647 What could I have done better in this game as Germany?
I'm currently participating in two ongoing games on the new world map. 15 different empires to start, so I should have a 1/15 odds of drawing any empire. I drew the same empire twice in a row... That should be a 1/225 occurrence if the draws were random, or even less if it weights other empires higher after I've drawn that specific empire (to increase variety, which I believe mods have confirmed happens, at least in Classic). Should I play the lottery, or is this a bug?
I am looking for 6 people with 80%RR or higher to play against me in a "classroom" game of sorts. I'm going to be mentored by an undisclosed mod during the game, and I would like some good competition for this round. Game ID is below.
There's a live game called "First <1 hour known world GB" http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=188263 It has 11 players. Obviously needs 15 players, but there is no join button! Anyone know what's up?
So I have a philosophical question that game up because of a decision in a game that is ongoing. I can ask without revealing the game or having any conversation about the positions. Would that be forbidden conversation about an ongoing game?
There's a game mode in VDiplomacy that allows you to choose your country as long as no one else has picked it. I obviously don't know the first part of adding something to a site like this, but it'd be a cool add on, thoughts?
I'm in a Known World 901 game, and it allows fleets/armies to take a turn to transform to the other on a coastal SC. Maybe I'm blind, but I can't find the rules for this action mentioned anywhere, so I don't know how it works. Can I support an army transforming into a fleet successfully, or does the unit not count as holding? For that matter, I'm told that the unit being attacked cancels the transformation, is this true in all cases?
I broke the site trying to make what I thought would be an easy feature addition. It's fixed now, but I recommend donating so Zultar doesn't have to rely on me as a dev. The mods are handling live impacted games and game time. Cheers.
