Re: Just convoy around

After you select the option to move to Venice, a further dropdown should appear with 'via land' or 'via convoy'. If you select via convoy, you can make this swap.

Re: Tips and tricks on chaos games?

In my (one game of) experience of Chaos, building an early alliance is both crucial and surprisingly easy. Crucial for obvious reasons. Surprisingly easy because it's so valuable to both players - after one partner helps the other to two centres, the other is highly motivated to reciprocate, as a tw...

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

Yep - I hadn't realised that some of those situations are bot-specific. I think the root of these could be that the bots vote draw at a time when people can't - between two phases, rather than during one or the other.

That's not all the situations you discuss, but in my opinion the others are fine.

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

I think that the draw with 18 centres is a quirk of the rule that bot games draw when you get eliminated - it is impossible in human play. This game where Austria drew in your opening post actually also looks weird - the orders say the retreats happened, but on the board Vienna is still red and Aust...

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

Please look at the examples: having no units and no home centres means you will never be able to build, regardless how many other centres you have. In the first example, my last unit was dislodged in Autumn 1907, yet I “survived” until the end of the game in Autumn 1909, because Denmark was still m...

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

I agree that WebDiplomacy disagrees with the official rules on who is in a draw. Personally, I think the official rules are a bit weird here - if all my units are gone but I have a centre and am about to build, I've pretty clearly not been eliminated. For survived vs defeated: both the rating system...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Like a penalty shootout in football, a tiebreak should distill the game down to its essence. How about if there's a tie, all the other teams vote for the winner?

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

And yeah, I thought that you might work out I had doppel'd you. I couldn't see much of a way to avoid that. My initial hope was that my drunk claim would be invalidated by a seer or robber - or just suspected as being too easy (since I claimed to have targeted the only person who had claimed so far)...

Lfischl, why the heck did you vote for me?
As the one-vote-short doppeltanner, I second this question.
I knew you were a tanner, damnit.
It was very interesting to watch all your shenanigans knowing that you were the tanner (or at least, thought you were)

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

Yeah. I love the role chaos of this game. It seems fun although it does mean there's a relatively high chance-to-skill ratio, if you ask me. Indeed. Remember that the game as designed takes about 5 minutes, so this probably doesn't matter less (both because people don't mind that much, and because ...

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

Thank you all for the game. I think the town has beaten us, but it was a laugh.

A last call: anyone who is pretty sure they aren't town should vote for me.

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

If Chaqa isn't Robber you are screwing yourself voting Teccles. Nah you're really not. If Chaqa isn't the robber, they are definitely not town. Town doesn't fakeclaim powerroles to confirm random other people. If they do in the webdip meta... you really need to get that meta looked at. If he was Mi...

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

It totally makes sense! What do you think is wrong with it? The key bits I want you in particular to believe are: - ghug was almost certainly not a goodie. What kind of town player fakeclaims troublemaker for about 90% of the game? - Since rd's troublemaker hardclaim has you and ghug switched, you ...

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

Ah yes, hard to keep up with all the fakeclaims in this one (and also what I'm pretending not to know...). I still can't see a remotely plausible scenario where either ghug or Chaqa is town. So the point stands :-)

Re: One Night Ultimate Werewolf Minigame [Hidden]

Yeah. That's kind of what I thought, since I did in fact know ghug wasn't a wolf or minion... Chaqa, I can only plead that you vote me at this point. You stole a wolfy card. If you kept it, voting me might win you the game. If you switched with ghug, you've lost anyway; voting me doesn't hurt you. G...
