Re: move resolution bug

13. Support is cut if the unit giving support is attacked from any province except the one where support is being given. The issue lies in the phrase "attacked from." Does the attack come from the land or does the attack come from the sea? That's the ambiguity. Reading this again, the situation is ...

Re: move resolution bug

I would have preferred it if the rule was different. Would have been more consistent across rules if the attack counted as coming from the see only. As it is now, in terms of cutting support the attack comes from the sea and from the land. But for all other issues (head-to-head movement, possible re...

Re: move resolution bug

Oh, I just realized you were talking on cutting support for an attack on the sea province containing the fleet. Yes, then having two routes makes a difference. Cutting support for an attack on the original province of the army, as in this case, it doesn't matter how many convoy routes you have. That...

Re: move resolution bug

I think a better way to restate it is "for the purposes of cutting support, convoyed attacks are considered to come from the source province and all fleets in the convoy". (But even that isn't right, because you *can* cut support with a convoy if you still have another valid convoy route) I'm not s...

Re: move resolution bug

Yeah, I don't think this scenario is in the rulebook either. It's one of the scenarios I checked before, and if I remember correctly all websites/apps has the same outcome as webDip: Bre will not be allowed to cut the support of Pic, even though it's moving via convoy. I'm not sure where dank used t...

Re: Crystal Ball Diplomacy

In this variant, the player who is lucky enough to guess correctly, in the event that their opponent guesses the *wrong* counter by gambling that the other move would be made, the effect of those right/wrong guesses is massively amplified, because the first player's second phase of orders will reso...

Re: Duplicate entries in Order History for games Drawn or Conceded in Spring

It's reported here:
https://github.com/kestasjk/webDiplomacy/issues/704

(And I say that because, that's where you should report issues like these.) Now, I'm not a developer, but Im guessing this one is lowest priority.

Re: Freedom!

I think the weirdest part of it was framing it as an 'elimination strategy,' when elimination has to be global. It's was always a hold-out-until-vaccines strategy. And a race against time to get as many vaccinated as possible.

Re: How to join a game without a reliability rating

I think you just play a game against the bots, and get used to the interface. That'll give a rating.

Re: Screwed up orders

But gunboat communication is not what the original post was about. It was about deliberately giving an illegal order, and later claiming it was an accident. If that's what we're talking about, then it might defeat the purpose to have an opt in for allowing illegals. Like, if I played a game with exp...

Re: Screwed up orders

There was a discussion on a channel on Nexus about ordering support to Switzerland. I might misremember but, basically, one user (i.e., their gunboat champ) had first played the game on some site where it was possible to move to Switzerland. And, ordering a move to Switzerland had become the gunboat...

Re: Two-player WWI-powers variant?

If you create a Gunboat game on this site (i.e., "Game messaging" is set to None), then you can select "Fill empty spots with bots." Make the game private, and have only you and your son join. You'll get one power each, and the other powers will be played by the AI.

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

DATC is not the rules. On Conspiracy, that move order would fail.

(Though, by the official rules, the move should succeed.)

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

In the first two examples, the problem is that the site differentiates between "Survived" and "Eliminated," but the official rulebook does not. It would be better (now that PPSC is gone) if we'd relabel both to "Lost." It is odd that the official rules has a winning condition which is based on suppl...
