Re: World 901

I think we tried to add KW901 a while ago, because it really is an excellent variant: https://webdiplomacy.net/variants.php#KnownWorld_901 But we disabled it again because the 'transform' rule (if a unit is in a coastal SC, it can use its order to transform into an army/fleet) was implemented in qui...

Re: New Rulebook Edition

Is there any reason why sites should be compliant with the latest publications from Hasbro, Incorporated? I'd be keen on knowing how they determine their rule changes before seeing them as anything other than suggestions As far as I can tell, they brought in a face to face tournament director (Tom ...

Re: New game for new players.

The links work (both take you to the beta page if you have beta mode on), but the beta mode does not have a join game button as far as I see... And because both take you to the beta page, there is no way to actually join the game through the link.

Re: Twitch streaming a game

We played this game live on Twitch a while ago: https://webdiplomacy.net/beta/?gameID=200000 Theoretically at some point it will be continued, and that will be streamed on Twitch too. The important thing here is that everyone in the game knew it was going to be streamed, and it was set up specifical...

Re: Forum moderation/activity discussion

By the way what was the reason for not allowing images? Was there a worry there'd be more to moderate? There's no technical reason we can't turn it on for everyone I can think of The main issue is that we already have quite a significant spam problem here; fake passport sellers and their ilk (oil p...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

I know my post probably comes across as 'what a snowflake' to those who aren't affected by what I'm talking about. On the old forum I would never have posted it because the response would 100% be a torrent of abuse. Hell, I dislike posting it even now because I'm an extremely conflict-averse person ...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

I am hoping to loosen the rules on the forum a bit; the women I asked didn't find the post sexist, and no-one found the other tongue-in-cheek comment objectionable, but that's up to people to decide. I don't think it's as big of a deal as it's being made out. They did agree that moderators should b...

Re: Bots are broken tonight

This is called the Russian Opening (Albanian Variation) in FvA. Both my 2017 openings tier list and RoganJosh's (better) 2020 tier list put it at the very lowest tier that's still considered viable in high level play. Very surprised to hear that the bot uses it, or even that Merry managed to use it ...

Re: Discord Bot for Notifications

Discord has updated its bot policy to only allow slash commands iirc, which means a lot of older bots have broken. This is probably the same, unfortunately.

Re: Study on artificial intelligence and decision making

That person was a spammer, making random comments to disguise the links they were posting elsewhere. They have now been banned.

Re: Nexus Leagues

Nexus Leagues is still going strong, and is a pretty solid place to find games. If you're not a fan of discord there's no requirement to join, but having the link displayed somewhere prominent on the forum helps build up the webdip playerbase there (which means in turn, more waves happen on webdip).

Very weird goings on in that game. I have no clue what's happening, will forward it to the site owner.

Re: Blitz Press - Regularly Scheduled Games Here!

I'm away until the 29th unfortunately... if you join the discord server linked at the start of the thread though, I think people are starting community-run games from there in the meantime
