Re: 1v1 practice

That makes total sense. One thing I've started to see in GvI (which I'm quite new to, and still learning how to think about), is that Italy doesn't gain that much from ruling the seas beyond control of MAO. MAO itself is big, but devoting more than is needed to control MAO is wasteful, because it's ...

Re: 1v1 practice

I agree that the coinflip is probably worse than the default German play. I think it's interesting, but wouldn't use it (unless perhaps I though I was severely outmatched!) Thanks for your points on Spring 1902. I agree 100% about Serbia, not sure what I was thinking on that one. I think if Germany ...

Re: 1v1 practice

Something interesting came up in my game in this "series" with Percy. He was playing Germany, and opened to Bohemia in Spring 1901. I opened to Tyrolia. In Autumn, this leads to a guessing game over Munich and Vienna, with pretty dire consequences for whoever guesses badly! I this case it was me, le...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Thanks for the update Magnetic! A nitpick: I think there are some small errors in how many games some people have played. For example (I haven't check the whole list), I've only played one game (as a sub), and perhaps more relevantly to qualification sweetwatersam has played two.

Re: 1v1 practice

I'd be interested in some 1v1 games where we discuss the play after the game (or even during). I've been playing a lot of 1v1, but I suspect there are still important strategic principles I don't understand.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

That's fair! I was taking a risk by playing it the way I did - in particular, fighting Germany rather than going with the alliance I agreed with them in 1908. You could have easily ended up with the lion's share of the draw or a solo, but it was also my only chance to get through to the semis. Germa...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

In Game 34 , I had a really fun game as a replacement England. It took quite some work to convince Italy and Turkey to take my side in an inevitable war with Germany (talking Turkey out of taking St P in Autumn 1907 was particularly difficult and crucial), and overall I was very happy about how the ...

Re: Changed RR, Missed Turns, and Game Create

This is awesome, thanks for all the work.

Bug report: the extending system seems to be working in https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=239124, but has sent me 4 notifications so far, one every 5 minutes since the delayed turn.
