Guinness record for longest convoy?
I'm in a World Diplo game, and we are almost done. A 4 way draw in this very, very long game! I'm wondering if anyone knows the World's Record for longest convoy. We are trying one that will use 25 fleets! If that's the record, please let me know, ASAP, as I can ask us to change it to use 26 fleets.

Thanks!

Fund for the Public Interest
Anyone worked for them? I was offered a job as a field manager, making about 400-500 a week for the summer. I've read plenty of bellyaching online. Some of it was legitimate, but has since largely been resolved by a class action lawsuit. The rest was basically complaining that it was a lot of work, at only a little bit above minimum, and repeated failure to meet your fundraising quota resulted in firing, no if's and's or but's about it.

Not an amazing position but a potentially goo one and very influential, especially if you come before the adjudication in 7 minutes.

The Thread for People Who Want to Gunboat Good and Do Other Stuff Good Too
Would the gunboaters who frequent the 1000 D buy-in games please post here how they play gunboats so the rest of us may learn from you? Looking at a game isn't enough, we need to know what you're thinking when you see a board. What does the better player see that I miss?

Help me craft a style
So I'm rebooting my diplomacy. It's been on autopilot for like a year and half and I'm going nowhere fast... let's talk comprehensive strategies, shall we?

Semi-anon.

If you're playing anon games, I'm a fan of the "helpless fool". Just act confused and scared the whole time and people will often leave you alone or even help you out of pity. When the time is right, you can stab them and go for the gold.

This, of course, doesn't work too well in non-anon games.
Thucydides (1012 D (B))

First I'll try to draft different play styles that are good combinations of characteristics and then choose one for myself to model on.

There's the really terse guy who's all business and doesn't do a lot lying, deceit, manipulation, and his moves are pretty much straightforward. Think of him as the guy who usually plays gunboat but he's in a regular press this time.

Then there's the talkative guy who's bubbly and fun and tries to be everyone's friends, avoids lying as much as he can, and profits from strong alliances and good relations with enemies.

Then there's the guy who talks a lot and is thusly respected and such but doesn't try to add that touchy-feely vibe - he means business too. This guy is definitely a manipulator. Think Babak. He specializes in offering you deals that seem to be totally reasonable and mutually beneficial and then using it as a trap and taking you down, sometimes. A good ally, a terrifying enemy.

Then there's mysterious kind, the unpredictable one. This guy's play style is a lack of a consistent play style. He takes risky moves, but not always, he talks a lot, sometimes. He might pull a chainsaw out. He might sweet talk. You never know what he's up to. In some ways he is the master of deception - he is behind a smokescreen so thick you can't begin to guess his plans.

Any others?

Ha Thucy, I KNEW you were a multi. You forgot to log out of Gobbledydook and back into Thucydides. Try playing one account, it gives you more focus.

In all seriousness, what's the problem exactly?

I mean. The problem is that I have no, like, approach. I don't have an M.O., a playbook. I just have random techniques but I don't have a comprehensive method.
Thucydides (1012 D (B))
08 Apr 12 UTC
I guess I should try to play to my strengths.

My strengths are:

1) guessing right on the opponent's moves
2) tactical innovation/surprise
3) re-building trust

That's because you're the Wild Card, Thucy.

Honestly, it's better, imho. If you're know for things, people can counter you better.
Gobbledydook (100 D (B))

My strengths are tactical play, but I am lacking on alliance-maintaining.
Thucydides (1012 D (B))

What's better?

Being the Wild Card?

How am I the Wild Card btw I don't actually understand the moniker.

Yeah my weakness is that people don't like me after a bit. I have trouble fostering loyalty.

I don't want to derail Thucy's thread, but I wonder how I am perceived as a player, not as a forum poster. Anyone wants to chime in? Strengths and weaknesses, either here or in PM.
I reckon you are who you are (or as Ke$ha says, we R who we R). You can try to play dumb for a while, or you can try to be effusive bubbly, but eventually either you'll slip or people will see through it, or whatever. That doesn't mean you can't try to improve yourself. If you are weak at tactics, try to study other games, use a simulator, etc. If people don't like you, try being friendlier, work on developing bonds, don't call other players pathetic morons and fucktards in global, etc. I think all that only goes so far, though. Fundamentally, you are who you are as a player and I don't think it really changes that much.
