Re: webDip Valentine

I broke up with my Valentine. Lasted 14 days, that's a negative record for me. It was fun while it lasted though. I'll cherish the memories, and perhaps we'll stay friends after the pain subsides.

Any chance this turns into the webDip dating program?

Re: Gunboat Strategy: England

At the time I was busy executing my strategy in two Gunboats with England, so I couldn't elaborate. There was no point in arguing with Swordsman until I had some evidence to support my army theorem. They're finished now, so I can post. http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=214750 is a solo victor...

Re: Push notifications

So what you're asking is that you receive a pop-up on your mobile when a turn is processed? Or when you receive a message in a game?

This might be possible, but it's currently not on our list of ultra-high priority items. If I remember correctly.

Re: PM System

We're working on this. It's very high on our list, but we currently cannot predict when this will be finished as all our developers are part-time volunteers with busy schedules.

Can you code? I'm not kidding..

DSS is awesome. Maneuvering your way into a 1-center draw is difficult and deserves a reward.
Yes, but not in a game that is force-drawn in 1910.

Re: Introducing Country Weighting

I disagree with this! Conceivably you could manipulate this by playing a lot of unimportant games until your favorite country gets skipped a few times, then joining a more important game. It should just be totally, independently random. That doesn't really work the way you decribe it. There's a cha...

Re: Introducing Country Weighting

We regularly had forum posts complaining about country weighting, but that should be fixed now that we outsourced it to Hungary!
Thanks for the work, this one was very high on our list.

Re: Retiring from playing Diplomacy

It's hard to solo, I think win+draw percentage is a better metric. You have a 35% rate at Classic, which is quite reasonable. Top payers start at 50%, but it's lonely at the top. Nonetheless, I'm glad to hear you'll still be on our forum. After a while, you'll probably feel like starting a game agai...
