Re: Luck Plays No Part in Diplomacy

"Luck plays no part" is such a brilliant phrase. It doesn't deny that there is luck involved. It asserts that luck can always be influenced. For example, your neighbor might enter the game determined to ally with your other neighbor to your detriment. But the game's systems give you some influence ...

Re: When to play a non-standard alliance in the east?

I disagree that A/T is nonstandard. I haven't seen it much on this site, but it's viable and not as unlikely as you'd think. It strives because Turkey shouldn't be interested in working with Russia or Italy if they know what's good for them. Turkey has the #1 solo rate on PlayDiplomacy, and A/I is a...

Re: Stalemate Contingency

Stalemate Contingency

If a single player refuses a draw vote when a game is blatantly stalemated, is there some sort of automated contingency within the game's code to call it a draw? Or does a mod need to step in manually? If so, do I need to email a mod? The hypothetical game in question is anonymous.

Have you been paying any concurrent games, or only 1 game at a time?

Help with points system

I'm 99% sure that I'm just misunderstanding the points system on this website. I am new to WebDip (I have played face to face diplomacy for many years). Here are the net points results of all of my games: Game 1: +2 (102) Game 2: -1 (101) Game 3: +13 (114) Game 4: -18 (96). If anything, this should ...
