Mods?? Do one of you know the answers, please? Does a Live game (with 5 to 10 minute turns) that converts to a longer game (such as 1 or 2 day phases) after x hours, get Ghost Rated as a "Live" game or a standard game? ....And what is the game phase time limit cut-off to count as a live game, please...

Re: GR for Live/Hybrid games?

Mods, would one of you versed in GR please answer the below questions? (Thank you for your guess, Yonni. As the hybrid live/standard game is relatively new, I'm not certain if the end of game status is the GR trigger for this.) Does a Live game (with 5 to 10 minute turns) that converts to a longer g...

And what is the max phase time, please, for a live game to count under "Live" GR (eg. 5 min, 10 min, 1 hour...??)

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

I would consider playing, but only if it's full anon (not just semi anon)... AND only if Goldie doesn't play, bc no one has a chance against the Public Press Master.

Yep, a few inherent paradoxes there ;p

Seeing Hidden Orders

What percentage of Gunboat players (playing games with no messaging) do all you think still don't click on the Archive: Orders/Map to see what move supports or support holds the other countries just played? I'm guessing 15% don't know how, and another 15% just don't bother. Knowing what orders your ...

A ruthless display to which cold hearted Diplomacy players will go to help their respective teams reach the coveted World Cup finals.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Seem to me that it would go against the transitive property of mathematics. But, Yonni, I'm not the math wiz that you are, so if you look at my GR rating numbers and think it still makes sense that the overall rating can have such a large magnitude of disparity vs "peak" when the three sub-component...

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

Seriously, though, playing "bots" should NOT be the answer. I understand the concern, but there are other ways around this. Playing one turn against a "bot" raises your RR?!? Really. Press Diplomacy players do not join WebDip to play bots. And, showing you can enter a turn or more against a bot at y...
