Can Trump deliver on this promise ?

WWI year-by-year re-enactment game
Would anyone be interested in this? To be clear, I mean instead of playing, we figure out a blow-by-blow of WWI and then re-enact it phase by phase.

I've not played in a while because I there were too many CD/NMR's. I come back, and once a game gets started it's AGAIN ruined by TWO players just up and quitting one year into the game.

Reporting myself for multi accounting
I created this account when I used up all of my 100 coins to join games and wanted to play more. I did not realise that this was prohibited and in fact, I still cannot find where the rules are located on this web site. I had to google to find the page.
Could the Mod please contact me and ban this account and verify that the two accounts have never been in the same game.

The games aren't weighted dependent on each other. So every game you go in, all countries have an equal chance of you rolling that one. Unless the mods changed it again.

Claesar (63 D Mod)

The chance that someone gets the same country in all 6 of their games is 1/16807. So for every 16807 users with 6 games played, this will happen.

We have more than 16807 users, so thanks for being one of those people! There are more people like you and this is perfectly normal in a random system.

While we're at it, the chance of you just having drawn the same country 5 times in a row when you're reading this topic: 1/2401.
You're not special enough.

@iimusashii: According to your profile, you have played or are playing in only 5 Classic games, and in only 4 of those you were/are playing as France. I don't think you are in any anonymous game so these should be all of your Classic games. I think you are exaggerating.

If I am right, games that are ongoing aren't counted so until a game finishes you won't have a history of game draws. (Correct me if I'm wrong, which I probably am)
TrPrado (372 D)

Last I heard the site stopped weighting based on previous draws.

Claesar (63 D Mod)
09 Aug 17 UTC
If I'm not mistaken, user accounts that joined before 2004(?) still enjoy a weighted system- i.e. they have a greater chance of drawing countries they have played less.

Once that is solved, everyone else is randomly distributed.

I'm not kidding.

I give kudos to an Australian Politician who plans to drug test recipients of unemployment welfare in a "random but targeted way". And the clowns in the public who see nothing inconsistent or irrational in such a statement.

HOW TO PLAY THIS
The instructions did not mention this scenario: If you attack a province that someone occupies, but that someone is moving their unit in that select province to a different province that is unoccupied, their move cancels and they have to defend their province which is being attacked right? I know this to be true based on my own experiences, but I wanted to confirm.

Private game replacement rules
I've been told by a deadbeat admin that is losing a private game that he has the ability to pick any replacement he wants and he asked someone who I'd rather slit my wrists than play with. There's a reason I play passworded games and I think there should be a rule where you need the consent of people in your private game before picking a replacement.
