Re: Is it possible to see map w/o moves?

Preview button will do this for the current turn (it will show just your currently entered orders, but if you haven't submitted orders yet or have all holds in it'll be blank).
The preview button is the one on the right under the map, with the small play button and green check.

Much less bad, but I also had a game that double-processed an hour ago and gave me a missed turn: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=366305.
This one was because I messed around with it a bit to get it to start, sorry!

Re: Two-player WWI-powers variant?

You can play the rulebook 2-player variant over at PlayDiplomacy.com. I think that is the only site which does it.

Re: Diplomacy Puzzle - The Nexus Problem

Oh, nice! I did do a little digging through the press to see if I could find who originally suggested it, but I think all of those players were using discord for comms over that time.

This was actually taken directly from the Grand Final of Nexus S5. It's a surprisingly interesting one!

Re: Tips and tricks on chaos games?

The likes of Smyrna and Portugal are definitely more powerful than Tunis and London. Part of Chaos is about surviving the early game, but the midgame is just as deadly - if a close neighbour is able to consolidate their region before you can, you're very likely screwed. Places like Turkey and Iberia...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

If everyone 7-way draws we can make this an FvA tournament. Would save me having to run another Champions' League!

Re: The Longest Game Ever - A Commentary

Should be noted though that if you post links to external sites (like webdip) youtube will automatically remove them, nothing I can do on that end. Ugh, that's exactly what happened. So I think that I managed to post different versions of everything that automatically got removed, except for one po...

Re: The Longest Game Ever - A Commentary

Another thing to maybe note is that the phase lengths were very variable. The game started with 36-hour phases, late in the game changed to 48-hour phases, and the game was paused many times, sometimes for weeks. Also, something called "wait-for-orders mode" was enaabled for stretches of the game, ...

Also, the first part of this series just hit 15,000 views, which is insanely high compared to what we usually get. Turns out this part of webDip history is pretty damn interesting!
