Results if no moves are submitted

#1 Post by JPlants » Tue Apr 06, 2021 1:43 pm

If no moves are submitted and the country has to disband, how does the site determine what to disband?

I think that the rule implemented on webDip is:
  • Furthest from home
  • Fleet before army
  • Alphabetical
Where "Furthest from home" is counted in number of moves to a home supply center where a convoy is counted as one move.

I might be wrong, though. The official rules are somewhat ambiguous (see the discussion here: http://web.inter.nl.net/users/L.B.Kruijswijk/#4.D.8), and I don't think the webDip house rules are officially posted anywhere.

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 only move over places where fleets may move. If two units are at equal distance alphabetical order of the territories is used.
I imagine that they forgot to mention 'fleets before armies', but that the rule is still implemented that way before going into alphabetical order.

The webDip adjudicator stopped implementing the civil disorder disbands correctly a few years ago, but the issue got fixed. Or maybe they 'fixed' it by ignoring the convoy complication?

I believe the issue is still open, and that the actual implementation does not follow the rule you quoted. https://github.com/kestasjk/webDiplomacy/issues/188
But again, I might be wrong.

But, yeah, fleet before armies is probably not in place then.

It’s only wrong on world. Pretty sure webdip does it “right” for the classic map.

If I recall correctly, there’s a lookup table for it, so it’s probably an easy fix.

If you NMR retreats then you disband those units.
