Re: webDip hosted full-press AI live

gioca.diplomacy.it, the Italian fork, is still alive somehow, although at the moment there is only 1 game running

Re: When does game move on?

If you're talking about the "Trust me..." game, atm all players have readied their orders but one (the grey tick)

I have the same problem, is this normal?
No, it isn't, but it happens sometimes. If you post the game ID (here or, better, in the mod forum), we will force the start

Re: "I need a Moderator" information out of date

Thanks, you're right. I edited it.
If you find other references to the old email please let us know.

Re: "Social Square" 49 players Gunboat Series

In order to run this without a full slate of 49 players, I believe the requirement of "play each other player exactly once" would have to be relaxed. You could ensure that each player plays each other player either once or twice, while retaining the feature that each player gets to play as all coun...

Hey, I'm glad this showed up on Discord. I've not been around in a while but this sounds like a lot of fun! Am I too late to sign up?
You're definitely not too late, we're very far from reaching the needed number of players. Can we count you in?

Re: "Social Square" 49 players Gunboat Series

It may take a while to get 49 players. Is there a way we can do this without a full rank? Or is it better to wait a long time? Unfortunately, the only option I know of is to reach 49, unless someone better than me at mathematics can help. Say we have T total players, and G players per game (7): we ...

I assume these games will be ranked for GR purposes? I'm also fine with any bet size
Ranked seems ok to me. The bet size will have to be smallish since some players may not have, or want to spend, the points needed to join 8 high bet games at the same time

Re: Gender information for academic purposes

Apparently Ashburn (in the USA) is a major hub for Internet data centres, so I'd guess we don't actually have hundreds of users living there. Kestas, as Jamie said traffic from Ashburn is traffic by bots, moving from the big data centers Amazon and others have there. You can easily check that, just...

Re: New variant thoughts

I agree, up to a point, that the disband/rebuild trick may sometimes seem like a way to circumvent the rules, but it can happen in regular games too. I just did something similar, or even worse, in a Classic game: disbanded a dislodged army in Pie and rebuilt a much needed fleet in Mar, so not only ...

Re: Top 100 Gunboat

Hey all, is there any interest in playing a 7 game set of gunboat games where you will be assigned each county? We've done this a couple of times with mod assistance already and they've been great games. Requirements would be to have a good RR and of course a GR in the top 100 for the site in gunbo...

Re: Top 100 Gunboat

I'm not a top player but I'd love to play if you'll take me! About how long do you think the whole series will take do you think? You're more than welcome. How long it will take? It depends on simultaneity and phase length, excused missed turns / CDs, pause requests, players quickly readying up or ...

Re: Top 100 Gunboat

I would be willing to manage something bigger if enough people are interested: 49 players, so 7 boards per round 8 rounds each player is guaranteed to meet each opponent exactly once each player is guaranteed to play a different country in the first 7 rounds, while the 8th round will have random cou...

Re: Negotiating a secret for encryption in the global press

Going to say here, from a kinda-mod perspective, this is a cool thought experiment but if you do it in a public press game (assuming I'm understanding this correctly), you are essentially communicating privately. If you join a PPO variant game everyone is going in expecting to play a variant in whi...

Re: Steep, Reliability-Crushing Learning Curve

Thanks for sharing your feedback. As you said there's no easy solution to the sub-in-a-game / miss-one-turn problem, unless we find a way to automatically distinguish (and sanction) "rage quits" from normal, accidental missed turns. So for now the current behaviour of the system is not going to chan...
