Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

And yet, somehow my ghost rating stayed the same, and my ranking fell. Weird.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I really enjoyed that, and winning the silver was more than I expected. Proud to have gotten into the draws in all my games, against top notch opposition. Great team experience with Hamilton Brian, Yonni and Peregrine Falcon. We will be spending the next two years practising 1v1's. Congratulations t...

Seems extra slow loading lately, compared to its old self and to other websites. Something with the new system?

Re: Just convoy around

I'm afraid you're not seeing what I'm seeing in WebDip's interface. Whenever convoy is an option, there is always a "via land" or "via convoy" drop down menu that appears if you give a move order.

I’ve been to Westerly. Do I get double points for that?

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Thank you again Goldie for your work with this tournament. It has been great fun (other than watching the paint dry in those last two GB games).

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

3 of our 4 members are pretty much on the Great Lakes too. Maybe that's the source of our success. Just drinking the effluent from your Diplomacy incubators.
And the fourth member of Eastern Canada (me) lives on the Gulf of St Lawrence, so the effluent passes down through here eventually too.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I don't blame Goldmember for the original rules. The frustration is with the players in the games.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

this also allows people to have life get in the way without consequences. Sure. Yet somehow the Full Press and Public Press players managed to end their games a month ago without anyone's real life falling apart. Also, I'm not sure why anyone is in a hurry. You call a desire to finish a tournament ...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

IMO there is no reason for gunboat games to take 36 hours per phase. There is no press to send or receive. Its pure gamesmanship by a team or teams who want the other group to finish first so they can know what result they need in their game. This has to be addressed by the TD.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

It's better for the teams in one group if the games in the other group finishes first. The World Cup (the real FIFA one) solved this by having all of the final round games start at the same time, and proceed at the same pace, so no one could get an advantage by delay. The difficulty with Diplomacy ...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

PS: That's not a criticism of the organizers. I love the tournament. Just hate how the gunboat players are playing it at the moment. Move or Draw, just do something.
