Re: 2018 WC Public Press EoG Discussion

I was not part of that game so maybe it would be better not to comment, but I will share my view as someone looking from the outside of the game. I feel fleet Brest would be superior choice to make on Autumn 1905. It is never good thing to signal your intentions too soon, and so long as you keep you...

Re: Make sure you bounce in the Black Sea!

most games that army isn't getting out of turkey in 1901 anyway. but your point about fleet sev stands. as russia, i am willing to hold it, if i feel i can trust turkey. That exactly is the problem. How can you trust someone before even one turn was made? In most of the games you have time to excha...

Re: Make sure you bounce in the Black Sea!

In my opinion bounce in the black sea between Russia and Turkey is the best move for both nation. It actually is only first move bounce in the whole game that could be taken for granted in every situation. It is true that it costs both countries a bit but return value is so much more valuable that i...

Re: Strategy for ancient?

I am generaly cautious with strategy that is based on pregame plans. Sure, some maps are made in such a way that country A is natural enemy of country B, but that is only one of the factors involved. Experience showed me that other factors are much more important and that if you join the game as nat...

Re: May GhostRatings Published

It doesn't neceserry mean that rank 1 is better than rank 2. Ranking is merely indicator. I remember easily defeating some player who was better ranked than me but also remember one player who was lesser ranked than me but I always considered him better player by far.

Octavious you are old with everything from before was better syndrome. People were more kind, flowers smelled better, women were prettier and rain felt more tender when it fell from the sky. I know, I have it too.

Re: May GR2 Published

We should make GR3 where we would use ranking system copied from Eurosong. That would spice things up for sure.

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

Turning game to good position require some skill. Turning game to the point where solo can be pushed for require even more skill. Taking a solo regulary require combination of skill, experience and factor X. I call that factor killer instinct. When game of diplomacy is aproaching to the level where ...

Re: It's been a long time. Who wants to play a game?

It looks like starting a game today require much more time than it was few years ago. When I joined my last game it took so much time to fill up that I was thinking about giving up on it.

Re: Syrian Gas Attack: I'm Losing My Mind

If GB/USA/F has chosen 3-4 mid level players on the site I am sure they would stage this chemical attack in smarter way. Someone should be fired for doing very bad job.

Re: Real April GhostRatings Published

Your current rating is your "all-time" rating. That file ranked players by their peak GR, which is still a column in the sheet. A ranking is meant to oscillate, converging on one's true skill (not to mention that skill level can change), so that number isn't very meaningful. My current rating is ze...

Long time ago GR list had the column called All time ratings or similar. This is actually good thing. Is it possible to filter the list to get it again?

Re: Zlatan signs with LA Galaxy

Sure Zlatan didn't play the qualifiers but if he can help Sweden in the tournament why not having him. It is not the first time that would happen and he has that magic touch that can decide the game in one little move.

First thing that I do is to speak with Germany and see is he interested to use his influence in Sweden to help poor old Austrian ally. If Germany is sensitive enough then Germany, Russia and me make agreement: if Russia is not in Galicia in fall he can take Sweden and Germany would let him in. If th...
