Cannot join new game because "having trouble keeping up with the ones I'm in"
oops... just posted this in a current thread, sorry - lol - Does anyone kindly have a view. I'm in four games, with a couple about to close and I decided to join a new one... only to be told that I can't. I have a reliability rating of over 99%. What other factor may be affecting this please?
This is as a result of a hidden stat called 'integrity', designed to try to increase the number of CDs people on this site pick up. To try to encourage established players (with many phases) to pick up these games too, it does not take into account phases played - just CDs, NMRs and CD Takeovers.
The problem is that this system became so effective at getting people to pick up CDs that for a long time now there haven't really been any positions to pick up at all.
I have asked Oli about this several times and haven't gotten a response on it, so I'm going to say that until Oli comes back and we can work on a proper solution, anyone who wants their game restrictions removed can post in the modforum saying so and we'll do it. Note that this does not mean that your RR will be raised.
The modforum is the 'Mods' link at the top right - post a thread there if you ever need to contact the site moderators about anything. You can only see your own threads, but mods can see and deal with all of them there.
The current NWO game being run at Redscape incorporated new experimental rules for the nukes: MAD (nuclear strikes can trigger automatic nuclear response). Spring 2005 sees 9 nukes trigger 3 nukes which begat another 3 nukes. Yikes! http://www.redscape.com/viewforum.php?f=151
is there a dip-variant as game of thrones / ringwars similar or not to the respective boardgames? maybe under another name, sorry my ignorance. if not, what tools, or site do you recommend me, to try to make a map? thxs all, happy new year
Hi! I'm new here and I don't know if it was already discussed, but it would be nice to have some sort of simulator to test out moves. Sometimes the rules aren't that easy to apply and it's hard to understand what would happen in a very tricky and unique situation...
Hello, I would like to start a tournament at map Europe 1600. Games will be anonymous and it will be message all. Or would you like to Public Press or Gunboat? My capacity of points is low, so eveeygame will be for 2 Dpoints. Who join?
diplom.org used to be the centre of the online Diplomacy community. Even long past its prime it held tons of interesting resources, variant files, articles, etc. For the last few weeks I haven't had any luck loading the site. Does anybody have any idea what's up?
Luckily, most of it is backed up by the Wayback Machine, hopefully that never disappears: https://web.archive.org/web/20161020130534/http://www.diplom.org/
During the procession of moves this morning, the game experienced a software bug and about half an hour later the map came up with the phase length saying "Crashed". Apparently a mod/developer needs to look at it to fix it. Is there someone who can help us out?
Hey guys! I was wondering if one of the experienced veterans has the time and patience to help me with getting better on these variants. I'm looking for a multi-day variety of two-player games and hopefully I learn how to get better.
Are there any of you out here looking for a big, fun, crazy game? Well, here it is! http://vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=29042 PPSC, and I set the SC win count a little lower to encourage a solo! Please join!
Thank you to all the men and women who served not only on the front line, but back at home as well. They all did us a great service. Let us pay respects to front line soldiers on both sides as they were just men following orders and doing what they could for their country.
