Known World 901 would be my suggestion.

A while ago, I made a variant in which I tried to improve on the World Diplomacy IX variant that is available on webDip.

Link to the variant: https://vdiplomacy.net/variants.php?variantID=129
Large map: https://vdiplomacy.net/variants/World10 ... pLarge.png

This would be my suggestion for a new variant. I think my variant allows for a wider range of (opening) strategies, which in turn makes the variant more balanced. For example, in the way the World IX variant is laid out, it makes most sense for Pacific-Russia to open aggressively against China, and for Ghana to do so against Libya; this heavily contributes to China and Libya being the worst countries. In the World X variant I made I think there are fewer of such 'obvious' openings.

Choose touchy diplomacy lol.

https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=64

It has an average moves of like 13 turns, and is very painful to look at.
On a serious note, I suggest classic fog of war. Fog of war is a great variant, and webdip would be greatly improved with the addition of it.

I'd recommend either Napoleonic or 1900

Colonial!

Totally Colonial Diplomacy!

Yes, I know it's a love affair full of yearning that's both broken and wrong. But after all, the heart wants what the heart wants!

But seriously, Colonial Diplomacy.

Colonial!!!!

Europe 1939 is an amazingly fun one.

Synapse's WW2 variant is also neat.

Known World 901 is good

From a quick skim, Chaoctopi, Ankara Crescent, or Furbar :D

But what we truly need is Ankara Chaos. Or maybe Layered Ankara Chaos.

Fucking hell, I'd settle for Layered Chaoctopi


Actually, how much work is it to combine variants like that? How feasible? I am absolutely down to make this fanciful dream a reality for the lacking masses of my brethren, no matter the cost or necessary sacrifices.

Fog of War is per Oli, a code mess, and would need a lot of work to be converted to webdip, so it is unfortunately out.

We tried Known World before and its custom aspects break the site engine so it is also out.

Haven't looked into any of the others mentioned.

Three good variants that are compatible with webDip's existing code and play pretty well:

Canton: https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=108

Maharajah: https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=74

War of Austrian Succession: https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=117

Pshh, playing well is only secondary in importance and concern to the possibilities of true chaos and mindfucking. And being forced to send press and woo like 20 neighbors, lmao

I suppose these fluffy dreams should be squelched, lmao

But wouldn't it be just utterly marvelous to play a bot game like this?
