Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

You are a scholar and a gentleman Goldie. Thank you so much for organising and for cajoling us all like a herd of cats across the line. Huge amounts of work, more I am sure than I know goes into it. Must have been quite fun being able to see the chats of each team and laughing at us when we missed t...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

My own vanity required I watch it almost immediately. Very interesting watching things back in the cold light of day - rather painful reliving some of my more dubious decisions. Its a really good video, nice pacing and great insight. They have pretty much hit the nail on the head with the underlying...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

For those of us in lockdown with no entertainment other than spectating the gunboat games, a slightly higher pace would be appreciated, waiting a full deadline for a single nation no option retreat is not giving me the adrenaline rollercoaster I am seeking. If people need the deadlines, all well and...

Re: If you could change one thing...

My tuppence worth without giving it huge amounts of thought is that I agree with Teccles around the Turkish position. It is the power I would least like to play because of a Turkish alliance being extremely difficult to manage for both Italy and Austria compared to other alliances. Leading to inhere...

Re: colored units

I would also add that as a convert from another site originally (that had coloured units) I too felt your pain - however that quickly passes and I have no problem seeing and know who is where (except for retreating units) even on a phone - so just stick with it my friend.

I was indeed representing PlayDiplomacy, however once the shock of not having group messages available wore off (and my goodness does that make a difference) I decided I preferred this site so will be making it my home going forwards.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

I was very curious while spectating to see what was going to happen after Autumn 1915 when it looked like F/G and I/R were locked in. As you asked I will drop a few thoughts in response... This was where I was a little naïve, I was pretty sure I would win on countback so had thought that if we reac...

Re: Scoring systems - proportional to supply centres

Oh and also your simple system does not factor in relative positions. Most people would agree that say if you topped the board with 8 you deserve more points than say you get 8 in a 8-11-15 draw. There is no difference under what you said but there is in SOS

On the full press point not sure how I feel about that will give it some thought. I would want at least anything too personal an un-game related to be redacted.
