Re: Pacifist Diplomacy ended - England wins

Awwww, that's so cute! Sorry that we disappointed you, TrPrado. There was another game that played out until 2014 because the last 2 people decided they wanted to set the record and then draw. I'm hoping the Public Press game from a few years back outlasts that and sets the record, since it's alread...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

You know, I don't have a tiebreaker in place for the Group Stages because its just so unlikely it would ever happen....but this was close indeed. And if Sons of Vlad and Great Lakes tie in the Finals, that does make the tournament's only tiebreaker invalid. I would honestly have to consult with the...

Re: Results if no moves are submitted

The webDip 'house rules', as you put it, are posted here: https://webdiplomacy.net/datc.php Here is how webDip interprets "furthest from home": 4.D.8 - D - In civil disorder units will be removed by distance from the nearest supply center, allowing armies to move over any territory, and fleets to on...

Re: The Longest Game Ever - A Commentary

Should be noted though that if you post links to external sites (like webdip) youtube will automatically remove them, nothing I can do on that end. Ugh, that's exactly what happened. So I think that I managed to post different versions of everything that automatically got removed, except for one po...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

You call a desire to finish a tournament within living memory of when it started "a hurry"? These games started THREE MONTHS AGO. I don't think I'm in a hurry. I just believe that an event is best when you can still remember the beginning by the time you get to the end. Ooooo, a whole three months ...

Re: Ankara Crescent

I'm sorry, Maniac, but if you've never been to Thailand, then I fear that you've opened yourself up to a terrible stab. Army Spain (south coast) rides the Ankara Crescent to Thailand (north coast) with support from Fleet Moscow. Of course, under the 2000 Olympic rules you could block that move if Ma...

Re: The Longest Game Ever - A Commentary

Another thing to maybe note is that the phase lengths were very variable. The game started with 36-hour phases, late in the game changed to 48-hour phases, and the game was paused many times, sometimes for weeks. Also, something called "wait-for-orders mode" was enaabled for stretches of the game, d...

Re: The Longest Game Ever - A Commentary

I hadn't logged into webDip or vDip since late August 2019, but then I happened upon this YouTube playlist on Friday and was shocked to see such an insanely long commentary on our game. It's crazy to think that you're only analyzing our orders and not even reading the press archive, yet still manage...

Yes, of course... i feel just a little bit silly :?
Thanks to you and jmo

We could add links, but the game search feature is frankly not great so I doubt we'll add that one until (if) it can be improved functionally. Damn, lost the reply I was working on.
