Re: Gunboat GR List - GR 101 and above

teccles, that truly was a masterful performance in the "About time..." game ! Why, thank you! It might be my favourite solo. I was very happy with how I kept my momentum up by pivoting between fights fast. I found Scandinavia interesting - Russia taking it with armies lets Germany ignore it for a v...

Re: A France vs Austria sandbox

I was not going for speed :)

However, your sandbox leaves something to be desired - you will have to order many no-builds for all the other powers. In mine, no power except France and Austria owns one of their home centres.

A France vs Austria sandbox

Sandboxes are great for planning out future turns and seeing where the game might go. Sadly, the only sandbox available is the one on backstabbr, which only handles Classic games. So, I played out a classic game to the France vs Austria starting point, for use in my scheming. If you want to use this...

Re: Gunboat GR List - GR 101 and above

Doug - I'd be interested to see the list of top FvA players. Would you mind sharing how you compile this (or, if it's simple, making the FvA list)?

Re: Gunboat GR List - GR 101 and above

A question for you all: If I were to post an RR% adjusted GR (GRxRR% or some other formula to weight one differently from the other), in the first column, then the the official site GR in the second column, followed by peak GR, rank, and so forth, would that be welcomed, or would you see that as an...

Response: Disagree. I may not be Teccles or Swordsman, but I do alright.
(Also, while I'm flattered, I don't even slightly belong on a two-player list of great press players!)

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Octavious how someone comes to be if he plays as you recommend? One game and the other players know that you are not to be trusted. Even if the game is an anon, there are writing patterns that betray many players. So if I know that I am playing with you or a number of others I know that there is no...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

The reason for the intolerance (or at least, not wanting to play in games with carebears) is that your way of playing the game makes our way of playing substantially less fun.

Re: Gobsmack — gunboat journal — DISCUSSION

Russia here. I have thoughts/comments on three decisions you made in the game: 1. Letting Russia into Sweden, and forging an early alliance As Russia, I'm obviously very, very pleased to be let into Sweden. I'm even more delighted if Germany follows up as they did here, by letting me keep it and att...

Yeah, a massive thank you to goldfinger for organising and GM'ing very attentively, and to everyone who took part. It was a really fun tournament - talking through matches in detail with other people is a rare treat. While of course all of my teammates are individually brilliant, sharing ideas defin...

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.

I'm afraid I just had another slow load time (several minutes).

I am using dark mode.
Was it the home page or something else on the site?
It's been both the home page and a game in the past. This time it was the home page.

Re: Unable to join games due to reliability rating

I think it should even be enough to play 1 turn against the bots, and then draw that game.

Welcome to the site :-)
