I honestly challenge anyone who obviously knows nothing about hockey to keep high morale when the refs are literally maliciously trying to throw the game. I've never seen worse reffing in a series, and anyone who doesn't realize these are humans that actually get effected when the ref delibrately tries to blow a series against your team, should realize that it makes your team feel like they are skating though glue.
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?
There's a new robot called the omnibus that does all the work that needs to be done -- faster, cheaper, and more accurately than any human can do. Wrinkle: only one person owns it. Is this a problem or a blessing?
Three Build England, possiblility and effect on game play.
As far as I know, there is only 1 set of moves that gives England 3 1901 builds, what if in a real game, England, Germany, Russia, and France must complete those moves, what will be the diplomatic effect in game?
So it is common knowledge that England have a impossibility in getting 3 builds in A1901, at least diplomatically. The only set of moves I can think that will give England 3 builds in A1901 is: S1901, A Lvp > Wal, F Lon > North Sea, F Edi > Norwegian Sea. [France] F Brest > English Channel A1901, A Wal > Bel(via convoy), F North Sea > Holland/Den, F Edi > Norway. [France] F Brest convoy A Wal > Bel It was done here in a "joke" game. http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=83280
For France, it would be the lost of use of F Brest for 1 year, but France could still get 2 builds. For Germany, it would be the lost of either Den, or Holland[assuming in the variant that Germany can choose which one], and also Germany can still move into Bur. However, Germany would know for sure North Sea would be unoccupied A1901. For Russia, no Norway is not that bad. For England, well, you got 3 builds. What will you build? With perhaps a German fleet in North Sea, French fleet in English Channel, and scatter about F Nor, F Den/Hol, A Bel.
That's not the only way England could get a triple build - you could negate the need for Denmark if you could convince France to convoy you into Brest instead. Sure, it's never going to happen, but any England triple build is never going to happen :)
The northern part of your plan is feasible. If you can convince Germany to bounce Sweden, you might be able to get a vacated Denmark by getting Russia to go to Baltic.
Around Belgium... It's essentially a Key Lepanto but with less of a payoff. Why would France convoy you over when you're leaving London open for him to walk into? What does France gain from this over a standard opening?
@Everyone Thank you for correcting me that there were more than 1 possible 3 build combination(rare A Wal > Brest). And as someone already pointed out the Northern part is possible(an anti German gambit)
The Wal>Bel[with French fleet] part: Consider if to cement a game long alliance, and to test the willingness of the British to trust me, as France, I propose that England use the "3 build opening" on the condition that I can station a fleet in the channel for an extended period(say to 1903, or some specific build threshold), all convoys there will be handle by me, DMZ NAO, and no F Lon(A Lon is okay)
While initially France takes a build hit, it has superior position. If England reneges in S1901, it reverts to a Channel bounce opening. I have all the justification to build F Brest, and know where I stand with the British. If England blinks in A1901, well too bad for them, no F Lon, I can point to my convoy order and insist I kept my word, and want my reward, a garrison fleet in the channel.
I am not saying this isn't borderline impossible to achieve, but in the hands of imaginative people, it might just work. If you were England, and France comes TO YOU with this proposal, wouldn't you just want to try for the sake of its steer epicness. Some people consider English solo's to be on their to do list, maybe a 1901 3 build England should be one as well. Not saying that France won't just go ahead and stab England for London.
So guys, as some of you know I can be a bit of a troll on the forums. This also tends to mean I'm a bit of a troll on other internet platforms that aren't webdip. One of them being tinder. This time I thought it would be hilarious to make this my bio and see what happens: http://imgur.com/tW86lIi
Stay tuned for lots of fun (because I some hilarious convos to share) **all identities will be protected**
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?
According to discord I am spicy? Because of my hotness I have been told that I need to "Chill". This is unfair to attractive people. I am being discriminated based off of my sexiness which should not be allowed. How do I try to get out of this "Chill Zone" without giving up my beauty? Please send help.
I was trying to think why Trump would engage in such brinksmanship with North Korea. Sure, it could be just more inexperience, etc, but then I was thinking that maybe the goal is to scare the generals there so much that someone bumps off the Great Leader. Then I started thinking, that's probably why he rubbed out his half-brother recently.
I have recently been told that I am misogynistic, homophobic, an idiot, an asshole, and a retarded autistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the best me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a better human? This is a serious thread and I want to become a better person.
