Re: Key Lepanto variant

- You could help Austria defensively. If it looks like Russia can take Vienna or Budapest, you can send the army to Trieste and help from there. Austria may feel threatened by that of course, but if the situation is such that he needs you to defend his other home supply centers, then he has little ...

Re: Key Lepanto variant

Nice to see that you have tried this out in gunboat too! :D And nice that you achieved a 3-way draw with it. My experience does not lie in gunboat, but nonetheless, here are my thoughts: I think the biggest downside in gunboat compared to Full Press is that you can't communicate to Austria what you ...

Re: Sealion from Germany's Perspective: 1901

Looks good. My biggest worry would be that things will leak. For example, England could tell Russia in the spring of 1901 that he 'has intel' that he plans to do a northern opening and wants to change his mind. That may alert Russia that you are playing as a double agent, if you are the only one he ...

Re: Known World 901 ???

Known World 901 is playable on vdiplomacy.net. It is generally considered to be a (very) good variant, and hence the webDip staff decided to port the variant over to this site, too. Unfortunately the code on webDip allows for fewer rule changes than the code on vDip, which caused the special rule in...

Re: Cutting Support

Is it possible that I was just seeing glitches or something? No, you were not seeing glitches. 2ndWhiteLine just didn't tell the full story in his post, for in some instances, an attack does not cut a support. David E. Cohen is correct. The rule is as follows: If A orders a supported attack on B, t...

Re: Reliability Ratings

Mentioning vDiplomacy is really becoming a meme of mine. Here we go again. If you play at vDiplomacy and hover the mouse above your own reliability rating on your profile, you see the text: ''RR = ((noNMR + noCD)/2)^3" This means: "RR = 100 * ( ([# of phases played - # of NMRs]/[# of phases played] ...

Re: Reliability Ratings

Swordsman, I don't think that anyone was arguing to make it easier for unreliable people to join games. As I understand it, the discussion was about making RR a better indicator of someones true reliability. Under the current system, someone who consistently NMRs a few times in every game he plays c...

Feature request: Joinable live games

Joinable live games should be displayed at the top left of the homepage in addition to upcoming live games. Please make it happen.

Re: How to approach potential S01 NMR?

Yes, it works for live games too, but on vDiplomacy there are played barely any live games. Speaking about live games, joinable live games should be displayed at the top left of the homepage in addition to upcoming live games. That is a feature request! If you CD in this way, the CD will appear on y...

Re: How to approach potential S01 NMR?

It isn't really WFO if players are kicked. :p But if you want to keep it simple, you could import the default settings (x = 2, y = 1) without giving the option to modify them.

Re: How to approach potential S01 NMR?

Definitely. Though I am no programmer, I would guess too that the fact that the code already exists on vDiplomacy makes it way easier to implement it here. I will briefly explain how the feature works on vDiplomacy. If a player does not enter orders in one of the first x turns of the game, that play...

It would require some serious dev work though.

Re: Any reward possible for taking over abandoned positions?

It is very appreciated that you take over abandoned positions. Your profile keeps track of the number of times you have done so, so your effort will be visible to everyone. ;) I think that if one would get points from taking over an abandoned position, we would get too many players who take over a p...
