Re: Suggestion for a possible site improvement

The problem is that it will make it harder to fill games. You have 3 of 7 players. Someone looks to join, but they're on someone's block list. So they can't join. Eventually a fourth joins. Now there are four block lists for the remaining players to clear. If you get one player who has a bunch of p...

Re: Suggestion for a possible site improvement

If a person is blocked because they're toxic, they should get banned for being that toxic. If you're blocking people because they backstabbed you, then you're going to wind up playing solo. The system described here I think would kill this site entirely - good luck getting enough people together th...

Re: Revenge vs Draw

I have to disagree about Austria stabbing Italy. I have 2 Austrian solo's, both I stabbed Italy in Spring 1902. Stabing 1902 is way different compared to stabing 1901 though. This is probably just my autism speaking, but the constant spelling of "stabbing" with one 'b' is driving me crazy! Might be...

Re: Revenge vs Draw

I don't think there is an ethical question here. You are entitled to do whatever you feel best. Myself, I take a total game theory approach to such questions. If the choice is between you force a Draw and get points, or another solos and you get nothing, I would take the points. If the choice is yo...

Re: Revenge vs Draw

You do you.

I sometimes draw and sometimes give away solos to teach another player a lesson. Often that lesson is that I dont fancy a specific players way to communicate or argue in the press.

Re: Playing for a Draw

Different people do it for different reasons. I sometimes use "Vote to draw" as a way to obtain allies. Like, if a couple of other people want to draw, if I also vote to draw my hope is that they will focus on other people than me (you can always change your draw vote later if need be). It's a commu...
