Accusation of Cheating

Are there rules about using press to falsely accuse a player of cheating? One player did in my game, and I'm steaming about it. The obvious intent is to use the allegation of cheating to build up an alliance against the alleged cheaters. If it was a bone fide allegation, they would have taken the ac...

Re: Dealing with the Metagame

I do much prefer SOS scoring, but there are few games created that way, it seems.

Re: circumcision

It is genital mutilation,
Only in the same sense that earrings are earlobe mutilation.

Re: Playing for a Draw

I agree. Playing for a Draw is a loser move. It appears to be a function of WebDip's point system, which rewards Draws. A Solo is at least 10 times as hard to do as a 3-way Draw, but only earns twice the points.

Re: A France vs Austria sandbox

FWIW, I like to use this sandbox, which I found in the WebDip forum: Politics Order Judge (web-based adjudicator; no download or installation needed): http://gamesbyemail.com/Games/Politics/Judge (You can turn it into a sandbox when using a computer.

Rulebook Press

Can anyone explain to me why Rulebook Press isn't the default system here on WebDip (and perhaps other online hosts too)? I mean, maybe it wouldn't make games that much shorter (although it would make them somewhat shorter). I just wonder why the online game decided to go a different way from the in...

And yet, somehow my ghost rating stayed the same, and my ranking fell. Weird.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I really enjoyed that, and winning the silver was more than I expected. Proud to have gotten into the draws in all my games, against top notch opposition. Great team experience with Hamilton Brian, Yonni and Peregrine Falcon. We will be spending the next two years practising 1v1's. Congratulations t...

Re: Just convoy around

I'm afraid you're not seeing what I'm seeing in WebDip's interface. Whenever convoy is an option, there is always a "via land" or "via convoy" drop down menu that appears if you give a move order.

Thank you again Goldie for your work with this tournament. It has been great fun (other than watching the paint dry in those last two GB games).

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

3 of our 4 members are pretty much on the Great Lakes too. Maybe that's the source of our success. Just drinking the effluent from your Diplomacy incubators.
And the fourth member of Eastern Canada (me) lives on the Gulf of St Lawrence, so the effluent passes down through here eventually too.

I don't blame Goldmember for the original rules. The frustration is with the players in the games.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

this also allows people to have life get in the way without consequences. Sure. Yet somehow the Full Press and Public Press players managed to end their games a month ago without anyone's real life falling apart. Also, I'm not sure why anyone is in a hurry. You call a desire to finish a tournament ...
