I've done this poll on another site and got some interesting results. I'll bump this one from time to time, just "like" the post that most resembles your demographics. It's in response to a statement about the forum community's demographics and I'm curious.
France fully used the fact that England (JMeister790) was inexperienced. Moreover, England cowardly left the game in 1903. Germany (TeRRoRShAdY) might have done better, I guess, instead of letting France take the whole of the British Isles unopposed.
Russia (cspieker) went headlong into the adventure of conquering Turkey (me). With the initial help of Austria (dopeybirdofprey), he might have succeeded, if he hadn't decided to stab Austria too soon. I didn't have much to do, except for watching Russia get smaller while Austria and Italy (MichiganMan) slugged it out.
As France became the main threat, Italy turned back soon enough, but didn't have enough forces to stop him. In the east, there were some misunderstandings regarding defense deployment, but even without them, Italian centers would have been more than enough for France to win.
Thanks Turkey (Zmaj),I apreciate it. Thank you all for letting me win,I was just lucky to have Germany only who was willing to fight me,couldn't have done anything else but to collect all what has been given to me by all of you.
As Zmaj said, I stabbed Austria too soon, or rather I probably shouldn't have stabbed him at all. I forgot that he had one excess center so he ended up not having to destroy anything. Plus I was anticipating that Italy would gut him. Unfortunately Italy did not appear to be the most skilled player (actually was apparent earlier on, I forgot to take that into account), and my stab totally did me in. There was something in the back of my mind telling me, "no no", but I didn't figure it out in the quick 5-minute play.
Well done Austria, you really knocked me out there (and Italy). Zmaj, I almost got you!! It would have helped if Austria would have attacked you earlier too. Oh well.
I was surprised that I survived up until that point, although it helped that Germany dislodged Italy from Bohemia. I let Italy move into Greece so that I could move to the Ionian and a hilarious game of hot potato ensued.
Sorry this took so long to get out, folks, but our newest mod has some computer trouble and we were waiting until he was around regularly. I'm proud to announce our newest webdiplomacy moderator: TruNinja Please take a moment to congratulate him and thank him for putting in extra volunteer hours to help the site stay fun.
This Site is Worse Off than I Remembered It to be...
What happened? When I left, I didn't expect the few religious debate threads or the serious diplomatic action threads to become the main feed of the crazy trolls around here. It's like you're separated between those who live for this site, and those who live for the debates on this site.
i was thinking that taking many points of view would give a better idea of the propaganda we see in the mainstream media, but now i feel like i can't believe what i'm reading (due to the propaganda which has worked on me...) Where to find balance? if it even exists...
I think that this forum needs less politics/religion. To that end, I am going to start keeping a strategy thread on the first page at all times. This is a revised version of a short article I first wrote on the vdiplomacy forum: http://vdiplomacy.net/forum.php?viewthread=29955#29955
This game is still waiting to get off the ground. England from the original game 2 went into Civil Disorder and I'm being (tentatively) replaced by Achillies27 unless he takes the old English player's position for the replacement game 2. Looking for a role-call for those playing the game.
