Re: Known World 901

You can play Known World 901 on vDiplomacy.net. That site contains a lot of variants in general, so if you like variety, it should be quite suited for you.

(If you register at vDiplomacy, please never play PPSC scoring though.)

Re: AFK holding us up

If someone doesn't log in for two turns in a row, that person is kicked from the game automatically.

@Mercy "I never played a Classic non-live game, yet I am considered 'active' under this rating system. I don't complain though." I don't see that. Doesn't look like you're listed in the "classic" tab at all. Ah I see, I was looking under the General tab. Now, I am listed under no tab at all, though...

Re: Diplomacy in reality with Webdiplomacy server

That shouldn't be a problem. I recommend making the game password protected though so that no one else accidentally joins your game.

Re: [Android] Conspiracy App

Oh, I have come across a Conspiracy player in a game over on Playdip. He was really rather good. Of the 400,000 or so Conspiracy members, I'd say 390,000 were a waste of space. Their top players, though... I think they could hold their own against the best over here. Definitely. I once played with ...

Re: [Android] Conspiracy App

Yes, the difference is that Diplomacy is a Winner-Takes-All game, and Conspiracy isn't. Other than that, the rules are the same.

Re: [Android] Conspiracy App

Conspiracy is a wonderful app. My only complaints are that it uses PPSC scoring to determine ranking and that metagaming is allowed and even encouraged (you can invite friends in public games). That last thing lead to an interesting experience when I played a live game sometime in the past. The game...

Re: Live game phase length

My preferred phase length for live gunboats is 5 min/phase, and for live press games is 7 min/phase, though 5 min/phase would do as well. I would not play a live game with a phase length longer than 10 mins, as that would take too long. I don't have any specific strategies to make things faster, but...

Re: How did I force a disband? Dislodged unit could have retreated

To raise another point: You can know the order from the Italian unit at Piedmont by checking the Orders tab on the bottom of the page if you are inside the game.

Congrats to all the winners but let’s remember the losers too.
Though I played my first game on this site 18 months ago, I already registered 6 years ago, and as such, I did not qualify for the category 'Newcomer of the Year'.

I am not even a loser. :(

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

Many games here are anonymous, and in anonymous games, one doesn't have to build up a reputation over multiple games. That may have to do with the increase in lying. Personally I find the game to be way better if it is played anonymously, as I dislike different games influencing each other.

No, as we do not have maps for 3 or 4 players. You may be able to do this on vdiplomacy.net with the right type of map, though.
