Re: Idiots Guide to Diplomacy: Anatomy of a Top Ranked Player

The ability to rally others is an incredibly useful skill to have albeit a very challenging one to master. It's one thing to seek out and recruit a like minded ally and maintain a relationship on a one-on-one basis but the biggest challenge (and headache) I ever come across in these games is when yo...

My apologies for mentioning D who must not be named. I shall stand in front of a mirror yelling "YouCantHandleTheTruth" until I learn my lesson.

Re: Private Messaging Abuse

Is this where we discover that demonoverlord was really just draugnar's disguise in reinfiltrating webDip, and after pulling it off has started the process of changing his name incrementally back to the original?

Ha! You never had me fooled!

Re: US Government Shutdown

The very fact that this ridiculous way of (for want of a better word) running things has been allowed to continue by both Republican and Democrat governments shows that both sides are unfit to rule. There are times that America is truly a global laughing stock. Yeah, I would much rather have a mult...

Re: Private Messaging Abuse

In a more serious matter... I'm sure just by you posting this thread he'll stop, if not he'd have to be pretty stupid (Or just completely ignore the beautiful, shiny, new thread) The vast majority of webDip players don't bother with the forum. The chances are he's completely unaware that this threa...

Re: Private Messaging Abuse

Not all diplomacy players are nice, and thank God for that as the occasional bastard enriches the game considerably. This player, from what you've said, has clearly contributed a great deal to the site in terms of providing high quality games, for which they deserve a degree of respect and gratitude...

Re: Renaming the draw

Perhaps it would be, but solos also end in an Armistice or Treaty of some sort. Or at least they would in a real life situation.

A lovely fairy tale. No doubt it is hugely inspirational to those poor American chaps who are forced to wear comical levels of protection for their game of catch the ball.

You really think everything Obama said there was straight forward honesty? I think we may have stumbled across the answer to why you don't have a top 200 ghost rating ;)

Re: Chelsea Manning Running for US Senate

I don't recall Ogion ever being Obama's greatest fan. I think you're mistaking vehement anti-Republicanism for being pro Obama. Ogion is very much a leftie. Obama, not so much.

Re: I am a stable genius

Trump's told his fair share or more of porkies, certainly, but he gets criticised just as much when he's being honest. Take the subject of Haiti, for example, and compare and contrast Obama and Trump. Obama said "It’s a great pleasure to welcome President Martelly of Haiti to the Oval Office. The bo...

Re: Chelsea Manning Running for US Senate

At the end of the day it should be up to the people whether they believe her past actions make her unsuitable or not. If you don't trust the people to make the right call, you might as well give up on democracy.

Re: Post here if you live in a Third World s***hole

Only beating Western countries like Portugal, Italy, and the infamous quasi dictatorship of Belgium? You'd better behave yourselves, mothers tell their children across the globe, or we'll send you on a city break to Brussels! All that proves is that the US falls happily within the category of civili...

Re: Problem with PMs - am I stupid?

That's how I think it works on PlayDip, anyway. And we've largely adopted the same system.
