Balance in Modern Variant
I just got back into diplomacy after a two year hiatus and looking back at my old games I've noticed that the modern variant has big differences in skill required to be successful between countries. So I ask, has anyone been successful with Ukraine or Egypt?

Army builds only game
I've set up http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=205374 as a game where the restriction (self-enforced) is that you can only build armies - you are stuck with just whatever fleets you start with.
If you want to join, PW: "armies"
slypups (1570 D)

Please don't join if you aren't going to stick to the rules. Also note, if you have a fleet that is forced to disband, it's gone forever, you cannot rebuild it.

England should be building armies from the outset anyway.

England has an advantage since its harder to get their main centers
CommanderByron (564 D Mod (S))

Yea, I think this game benefits England, France, and Russia with small benefit to Italian and turkey. Germany and Austria are fucked.

Biggest defensive advantage goes to Italy / England
Biggest offensive advantage goes to Russia

Biggest defensiv disadvantage goes to Austria and Germany
Biggest offensive disadvantage goes to turkey and France.

I think fleets only wouldn't end. Only a draw.

Turkey is especially vulnerable to a lepanto. The only way to stop the Italian/Austrian fleets would be to allow Russia through Constantinople.

I see an initial military advantage to England, which converts pretty quickly to a diplomatic disadvantage.

"Hey so England is going to be tough to beat if you attack me first. Let's team up."
"Yeah same"

Are you talking about armies or fleets?

@Teacon7. Agreed, I could see the sea lion becoming a very popular play.

What about armies only in even years? Fleets "take longer" to build.
teacon7 (306 D)

@ubercatcher - I meant the army-only variant. England would have a pretty tough time with a fleets-only variant.

Game of Thrones Season 7 is terrible
So this is probably gonna make people dispise me. I wanna explain in great detail why Game of Thrones is sub-par at best at this point. Let me preface this by letting you know I am a die-hard fan. Ive read the books. I play the LCG, I am truly a GOT obsessed fan. But this is awful writing

What is "Survivors-Win Scoring"?
It appears on some old games (example: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=6869#gamePanel).

Appears really confusing, I can't figure out what is supposed to happen witht the points. Why was it removed by the way?

Biggest Pot Game in webDiplomacy HISTORY
Just as it says in the subject line. I've been tasked with helping set up the biggest point game in webDiplomacy History. Probably in part because it's way above my number of points so I'm beneath taking part myself.

It's going to be *fully* anonymous; aka no one (besides myself) will know which 7 players are in the game. If you want to take part, or have any questions about the game, PM me for the password/details. Game link here: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=205041

Fiscal Conservatives should be against providing Disaster Relief to Texans
Its their fualt for living along a coast. We should shut down the government, and not spend taxpayer dollars helping rebuild homes for people who built in high risk areas. Disaster Relief shouldnt be political. So lets deny everyone aid, regardless of that states political leanings. PS I dont believe what Im.saying just fyi

As long as we're doing weird game variants. How about:
