Re: Anyone else think England’s more dangerous to Germany than France?

I think those analyses are valid, but slightly off-point for this question. It does make sense that locking down French centers first leads to more wins than trying to lock them down later (as sword was saying). It also makes sense that France gets a greater boost in win percentage than England from...

Re: Anyone else think England’s more dangerous to Germany than France?

I'm definitely guilty of having an anti-England meta as Germany. I've just been burned too many times by a fleet slipping into Hel or Ska.

Frankly, the best move is to set England and France at war, grab all of Scandinavia before England can, and then stab France with Italy/Turkey.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Whoever checked all their tournament games within 5 minutes of jmo unblocking everything, I appreciate your zeal, but unfortunately it prevented me from pausing these games and adding time back. I don't believe it matters much for the gunboats or 1v1s, but for our full press game, I do not know what...

Hi all,

Until the site functionality is restored, the last two games will remain paused.

Great! How about the FvAs?
FvA's should have already started. I know the Yorkshire Puddings vs California one is ongoing - I was going to chide team captains in my coming message this weekend issuing the second round of matchups.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

All games have been running. I will check and scramble now as needed. Unpause and launch will be in roughly 12 hours except for the public press game, which will remain paused until a Sunday launch.

I'll try to start it at a time that's good for people in all the timezones - and will give a heads up here before they start.

Re: Bot game error

Thanks for reporting this. It is an occasional bug that pops up with the bot games and we're investigating the cause of it.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Just so everyone's aware, one team's members need to delay start until mid-week, so won't be joining until then. Again, I'll be avoiding starting any games until all are joined, so as to avoid giving away any potential partial information.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I like the idea of differentiating the full press games. I'll take that into consideration for the next iteration. However, I feel that 1v1 as a format has risen to a position in the online diplomacy community to merit inclusion, and that the overall weighting given to it (120 points for a perfect r...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

You know, I don't have a tiebreaker in place for the Group Stages because its just so unlikely it would ever happen....but this was close indeed. And if Sons of Vlad and Great Lakes tie in the Finals, that does make the tournament's only tiebreaker invalid. I would honestly have to consult with the ...

While we're waiting for the last game to finish - *Captain of the team who isn't readying, please lean on your player* - the 6 teams that have clinched can start internal discussions on if you'd like to change your game assignments for the Finals. Tentative start date right now for the Finals is the...
