Re: March GR2 Published

So it seems like 1v1 completely dominates these rankings, which imo decreases their meaningfulness, but that's your call. Also on the subject of 1v1 though is that your 1v1 ratings seem to differ from the straight Elo, which is odd to me, since theoretically this system should reduce to Elo in a 2-...

Re: pm recipent limit

You should now be able to send one to up to 20 people to handle world game invites. Let me know if you still have an issue.

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

Usually it's one of three things: Units bounced in the only territory the unit could have retreated to. Even though it's vacant, the fact that it was contested means no retreat. The player missed the retreat phase, so the unit was automatically disbanded.[/ The player chose to disband the unit rath...

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

This is because after a fall turn there is a retreats phase. During the retreats phase, any players who had a unit dislodged get to choose where that unit retreats too or if they want to disband the unit. So Italy's unit is not gone yet, though he/she currently has to decide if they want to retreat ...

Re: How do you search for a player?

Yes, at some point the old pm system will be removed and the two sets of profiles will become more integrated. No timelines on those yet though.

Re: Noob to this site....what is the etiquitte for getting invite code?

If a game is made with an invite code then the players are probably already pre-determined. Look though the New Games tab to see the games that are open. Many will not need invite codes to join.

Re: Idiots Guide to Salesmanship

Finally some dialog! Was starting to think i was writing these for myself. Even if you aren't getting replies, these are amazing and slowly being included in the site resources on how to play the game. They are perfect for people newer to the game or even longer term members who need some help bump...

Re: We should have +1s again .. or should we?

I assume if Kestas decided to turn this into a poll and make it global that he has an idea in mind for adding +1's back, so I would take it seriously and vote what you'd like to see.

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

I would very interested to read a moderator motivation for deleting that post that Condescension made!! Who is the moderator that did this? I emailed them and they said 'all of us', so they're not willing to reveal that. Pretty lame to stealthily nuke a post (most of which wasn't insulting) and not...

Re: Introducing Country Weighting

This conversation is absolutely absurd. Some points to consider: 1. This makes a decision based on everyone in the game. So even if you "game" the system, it still might not have any impact if the other people on the site are already unbalanced more then you. Which is very possible since we didn't h...

Re: Repercussions for quitting

I'd disagree from the mod forced perspective. There are many very valid cases where people need to leave games and someone is willing to fully sub in for them, or cases where we simply need to force someone into CD for testing or for training purposes. I think the point of this system would be to pu...

Re: Threads with password protection

This can already be done within the confines of the phpbb tools. We can make a new subforum where people require authorization to post but not to read. If there is a forum game that needs this then submit a request to the mod team, but as it stands now community/moderator enforcement of verbal reque...

Introducing Country Weighting

In very simple terms, this change will help ensure that country assignments are more even for members over multiple games played since country selection has been broken for a while and thanks to this change, it should be "fair" again. To quote the creator's description: "Previously country selection...
