Re: Political statement on homepage

A fair point, Major. I would argue that the very few cases of coronavirus in Australia mean that the risks there for a protest are minimal. For the same reason you can have crowds at sporting events in New Zealand with very little risk. This is very much not the case in the Americas, and indeed the...

Re: Advanced Maneuvers

I dunno if i'd really want to take advice from an idiot. That's just crazy. Shit, now i need a whole new bag of tricks. Ahhhh, I love this post. Some of my favorite tricks that individually seem improbably to use, but when hosted together end up giving people solo's they would never otherwise get. ...

Re: Political statement on homepage

To quote something "perfect is the enemy of good". Oct, you think you have a good argument, but actually you're not adding any thi g of value to the conversation. A typical left wing strategy to shut down people who dare to have other opinions. Whether you value my contribution or not is entirely i...

Re: Political statement on homepage

It wont stop me using the site but I'm not comfortable with seeing political statements on the homepage..! Unfortunately the comfort of some has resulted in the death of others, and so the comfort must be ignored. We also do not view state sanctioned violence and racism as political. Various polls ...

Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

That was a part of what I pointed out: as every instance of analyzing situation causes changes in the situation, the information must be re-analyzed and after several iterations everything goes so deep into the game theory the moves could as well be random. Nah, if you're methodical in what is said...

Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

Or at least...it was the best tactical move until I pointed it out, because once that's pointed out it means that because Serbia will be tied up, Austria cannot perform a 3 support attack on Bulg meaning that Turkey would be free to use Const to support hold Smyrna which is otherwise less likely to...

Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

@gold I like that analysis but it's a little lacking around Austria and tapping. The main reason for that is Russia made a move for Vienna last turn right? So that means that Austria is forced to assume that another move is coming. Either a supported move against Budapest, which would have to come f...

The only luck that exists in Diplomacy is when one player takes a coin and uses flipping it to decide their move.

Italy - FlyingBoat - C You were outguessed. Did you know the great players win 80-90% of their 50-50s? There's so much you can do to sway the odds in your favour. Can you ensure success this year? Also, winning 80% of 50-50 guesses is still luck, not skill. If the two options are equal in all respe...

Re: Cheating or not?

Dear member,

I have removed the link to the game from the post. We do not allow public cheating accusations. Those need to be communicated to webdipmod@gmail.com.

Future accusations in public will result in point dock.

Could always do negative points for a game that drew without a stalemate lined up.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

@Valis, but if the things you mention led to a win, would it still be something to criticize? The goal of this tournament as I understand it is to solo. So if people find weird strategies to do so, why criticize? It's just not a mindset I share so curious to see the counter.

But it does seem to me that once a player has checked with a tournament director on a strategy and it has been approved, the player really should not be criticized for their play.
