Cheating in live games
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=196087

Does anyone else think it's strange that Germany and Russia perfectly coordinated moves in a live game that was anonymous without any chat whatsoever? Also, I find it strange how Russia makes no moves in the end and allows Germany to completely take him over. I think we have a multi scandal on our hands people!

Legitimacy of the website
Hey all,

Was just wondering how legitimate this website is? I played Diplomacy back in the day, but never online. Wanted to know how rampant cheating or botting is. Seems like a lot of players play in multiple games together. Is it just a small community or are this an uncommon thing? Anyways, having fun so far! Reminds me of the good-ol-days. Thanks for the dialogue.

Game Reboot?
I'm taking part in a WW1 reenactment game (gameID=195453) and we'd like to restart it. Is there any way for us to restart the current game? Otherwise would it be possible to have a new game with us all in the same country as the first game? The new game is here (gameID=196051)

We just dropped a MOAB in Afghanistan... The largest non nuclear ordinance we have. This is in response to a green beret dying from small arms fire.

Maybe Trump wasn't involved, but there seems to be a lot more freedom to flex its muscles in the military under him. As long as he doesn't kill civilians, I kinda like it

I mean, if we're in these wars, we might as well win them, right? I get that, but still, it's pretty fucked up to drop such a massive weapon, even if it's only a fraction of what we dropped to end World War II.

@James ... it is the same for me as well. I don't understand how they acquired the intelligence to determine that there would be no civilian casualties in an area as wide as a mile wide blast radius in ISIS territory. As such, I doubt they particularly cared, and that is what bothers me.

Of course, if they had that intelligence and could 100% say there were no civilians and only genuine ISIS fighters (as opposed to the definition of "civilian" when we talk of drone strikes, where people walking near a suspected ISIS fighters are, of course, automatically ISIS fighters), then that's great. Drop the biggest non-nuclear bombs you have all day long.

They went with the guilt by nearness definition since only ISIS members would be near and ISIS site and not local civilians that couldn't afford to flee.

@randomizer

seeing as literally none of us have the intelligence reports that they saw, i don't think you're exactly qualified to assert that as fact.
Randomizer (0 D)

Well none of them wear uniforms and almost everyone there carries weapons so you can't use that as a distinguishing feature from aerial surveillance. That leaves ground surveillance and even then it's hard to tell since with a large area attack our forces pulled back long before the drop.

That leaves the traditional they must all be enemies until the body remains are ID.

I have no idea why scientists think that Humans won't work on an S curve. ALL populations are on S curves! it's just we're going to be more sad when the oscillation on the Maximum bound kills millions... so we desperately search for more and better resources.

and all the time have more babies (although the US is at a decelerating positive velocity, which is a good direction right now)
JamesYanik (548 D)
14 Apr 17 UTC
The truth is, Africa and Asia are going to hit the maximum S curve bound geographically first. Their population rates are the crazy ones when compared to total aggregate resources. places like Europe and the US are going to hit a HUGE demand burst, which will be great for us, but destroy resource reserves.
JamesYanik (548 D)
14 Apr 17 UTC
@Randomizer

so you have the population and geographical specs of the exact stronghold attacked?

because some camps really DO only have militant forces. the cell structure of many terrorist organizations DEMAND that non-essential personnel are entirely isolated: it helps for operational security so you can't be compromised (or compromise) other cells, but it also guarantees that if identified you can be easily eliminated without fear of civilian loss
Randomizer (0 D)

From what has been reported on other ISIS camps in other countries:
Civilians used as workers/slaves/forced wives
Civilians used as human shields

So low likelihood of purely military base with no civilians.

"Officials said the target was an ISIS cave and tunnel complex and personnel in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province, a remote area in the country's east which borders Pakistan."

remote, militant areas, specifically on a cave complex? DOUBTFUL civilians are there, and also, we don't know what extra intelligence was provided.

haha i meant my post that followed that one.

"The truth is, Africa and Asia are going to hit the maximum S curve bound geographically first. Their population rates are the crazy ones when compared to total aggregate resources. places like Europe and the US are going to hit a HUGE demand burst, which will be great for us, but destroy resource reserves."

the places with lower population growth rates are going to absorb demand from countries with higher population growth.

our problem is that as resources decline and we (have) become less labor intensive, we won't be ABLE to absorb that much.

We might going to hit a resource ceiling soon, but it is still doubtful. Technically the developed world should've already hit max capacity but because of innovations like the haber process which gives us tons of fertilizer, we can sustain more.

The issue isn't when resources decline @JamesYanik, it's when our technology can't stay ahead.

Timer out of wack with PC?
Sorry that I couldn't seem to find this in FAQ/Help. I've had this issue on my laptop and now my PC, the game timer is not updating correctly it appears and either says 'Now' when there is still 2 minutes to go , or might say there's 2 minutes left when actually the phase is over. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
