Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Don't play DSS I agree 100%. SoS is the way to go - as well as playing anonymous. I'm looking more for tactical or diplomatic in game solutions. You do know that SoS soring is against the official, printed rules of the game, right? And you're here complaining about a so-called "unspoken rule"?

While it is undoubtably true that controlling your home SC's is critical to the survival and expansion of all the Great Powers, I think that there is some flexibility on whether one chooses to prioritize their defense. One thing that I try to do is use my units in other theaters while at the same ti...

Re: Gulf of Bothnia support hold StP North Coast?

See page 8 of the rules : Bulgaria, Spain, and St. Petersburg: These are the only coastal provinces that have two separately identified coasts. A Fleet entering one of these provinces enters along one coast and can then move to a province adjacent to that coast only. The Fleet, nevertheless, is cons...

Re: Sealion against France

Yes, I'd say so. If Italy or Russia don't intervene, France could fall fast. See "The Library of Diplomacy Openings" and the "Opening Strategy" section of the Diplomacy-Archive . Remember that the Mid is also vulnerable in '01, and that Mun can also open to Ruh in Spring '01. England can move fleets...

Bit weak but the best I can d...
