Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Tjappator, I think the timescale is 'as soon as possible'. The most immediate impact can be done with renewables that are deployable much, much quicker. I have nothing against building more nuclear plants (fwiw, I worked as a nuclear engineer for a few years before changing fields). I just think it'...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Building new nuclear power reactors is not a reasonable choice for replacing the hydrocarbon burning plants in a timescale that is appropriate for the climate crises. As others have pointed out, nuclear has a very strong (if maybe headline catching) safety history and is miles ahead of gas and coal ...

Re: First time playing a griefer in this game.

A neutral Belgium in 1905 is fun to see. Also glad to see what whinging in the forum isn't a successful strategy.

Re: Is the Diplomacy Map Unbalanced?

I narrowed the spreadsheet for DSS games with a pot >= 707. (Again, not positive how accurate this data is, I forget which spreadsheet had what mistakes on it but...) Out of 295 games: .................Won.........Drawn England_____3.7%_____43.1% France______4.1%_____49.5% Germany____4.7%_____36.9% ...

That's a good point. Might be skewed by the games on the site before the draw button was added. I can try limit it to more recent ones...

Re: Is the Diplomacy Map Unbalanced?

For what it's worth, I scraped the WebDip database a year or so ago. I have a spreadsheet summarizing all of the classic map ranked games (that also met a few other criteria that I don't quite remember like last 3 years or something like that). Out of 37,831 games (not sure how to make at table): .....

And yet, somehow my ghost rating stayed the same, and my ranking fell. Weird.
The games were all unranked.

Re: Screwed up orders

Entering wrong orders with the current interface is just as useful of a tactic as entering illegal orders with a sandbox interface (read: not very useful at all). I know writing down correct orders during the time crunch of live games is a skill for FtF games but I like that WebDip takes care of tha...

Perfect in the first round except for a draw too, I think. Well done Puddings - meme and teccles in particular, I guess.

Yorkshire vs Prosecco in their final 1v1. Pretty exciting stuff.

Re: See Ghost Ratings

Other than the HoF, there isn't a list posted anywhere which is a bit of a shame. When I was trying to learn Python, I made a script the scraped some things from the site. I'll see if I still have that kicking around somewhere. Should be a pretty easy thing for the devs to add when they get to it, I...
