Re: Lick Me in the Arse

Talking about Chopin and rarely played piano concerti, I'd like to ask your opinions on Scriabin's concerto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ9fKazNnI4 !

Re: Lick Me in the Arse

Truly a masterpiece. And now for a lesser known piece in the musical world, Johann Nepomuk Hummel's Piano Concerto No.2 in A minor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYr7z1RYgaM Hummel studied with Mozart for two years when he was a boy, and was later one of the best pianists in Europe who rivaled Be...

Re: Lick Me in the Arse

When I saw the title of the thread, I figured it was something else and immediately thought I should share that Mozart. Curiously, I'm afraid I had never listened to it with due attention! I've recently listened to a couple of Hummel concerti (using the pandemic to listen to new composers, at times)...

Re: Ankara Crescent

I have watched the game more than played, and, given the uncertainty regarding the rulebook to be used, I'll dare start with F Moscow and see what happens.

Re: Worldwide decline in Diplomacy game

I suppose you'll get much more of it if you or JMO or Kestas instal Vdip and Ru-server variants. Also we need posibility to select the language of interface and language-rooms, where you can create games between the chineese-speaking or russian-speaking players, etc. I really think it's a bad thing...

I am also unaware of any cheating that happened during the 2016 iteration of the tournament.
While not entirely sure how this changed the tournament's outcome, I recall vixol, from team Sweden, being spotted in more than one game in the finals!

There can be multiple teams from the same region, just as a fyi. Last time around we had two Great Lakes teams

Re: Elimination Conditions

Oddly, this has happened to me (and to Jamiet99uk) in this game: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=173773#gamePanel. Personally, as someone who has several times taken actions to keep someone else alive into the draw, I can't see why such a peaceful exiled government should not be recognized ...

Re: Will you be my friend?

As I'm afraid I've been saying way too often, though I rarely commented on the old forum, I do remember you, I watched some of the youtube videos and regrettably did not have the opportunity to play you, but would happily do so now, or in the following weeks. Welcome back! You're certainly a great a...

Re: Announcing Diadokhi II for play-testing!1

I'm more than interested to play, as long as phases are not too short! Have you created a game already? I'll log into vDip after years of absence and see if I can either find it or find you there!

Re: The truth about the new forum

Throwing my two cents in, I do remember there were many instances of the forum being far from welcoming, and people being rude, especially towards women. Issues that should have been addressed and, well, in a way, were addressed. I have no clue about the reasons for the overall change in how it work...

@BobMcBob, the chaos game was very interesting! I love the thrill of being on the ropes with a single unit or something similar, and yet remaining around. Also, I happen to spectate the other one :) I have a few remarkable games myself... And it feels somewhat old to look at games you remember so we...

Re: Trump decides war with Iran?

'They could have pushed for Liberal democracy then with a lot more success, but didn't want to.' Indeed, but I'm pretty confident not overthrowing Mossadegh could have been way more effective in terms of ensuring Iran would be a democracy/constitutional monarchy, and definitely would have denied Ira...
