A noob question about R###
Hey Guys, new to the site (and fairly new to diplomacy).
Next to players names are their diplomacy points, I get all that, but next to that is an R### number, I may be missing it, but I cant see this in the rules. (ie name is NAME(1000/R92). What does this number mean?

Hi Sengoku Nagashino players - please deposit your thoughts here for designer digestion as the first round of games resolves.

Please do not directly comment on the situation/players etc. of any active games. Please limit your comments to the variant design itself, as it appears at gamestart. Once a game has completed, it is fair game for analysis, but not before please.

Deep philosophical question about American culture
So I teach at a major public research university. And I keep noticing that my male students in their early 20s seem with a surprisingly high probability to be intimately familiar with the movie Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. This movie came out when I was in high school. And at the same time, they seem ignorant of In Living Color which is readily available on Youtube. So why DBAMTSCWDYJITH and not, for example, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka?

Game set up - NMR
I want to set a game so that it never processes a turn with out orders. I think that is setting “Turn” = 0.
But if I set “Delay”= 2 does that mean a two day/phase pause before that player is kicked? Or is he kicked immediately and there are 2 days for a replacement to appear. In the latter case what happens after the 2 days?
Devonian (1871 D)

The way I read the instructions, I think you need to set turn to 91 or more, and delay to 91 or more. (or select the "serious" option in the dropdown)

I think if you set turn to 0, it will turn the feature off completely.

And I think the delay means, once the players is kicked, there is an automatic extra "x" amount of time is added until a player is found. (But I don't know what "time" means, days, weeks, or turns?
GOD (1664 D Mod (B))

You can just set the NMR policy on serious :)
Grahamso1 (1475 D)
20 Dec 17 UTC
Setting to “serious” or setting turn to 91 I think does the opposite. It allows multiple moves to process before kicking, 91 moves in fact.

Time added is in phase lengths but I am not sure what it means to add time after a player is kicked. What happens then, the game can’t cancel surely. So it only seems to make sense if the delay setting means number of days after a player fails to submit but before he is booted

That is what I am hoping. My goal is to prevent any moves getting processed as all Holds. But give an absent player 2 days to return, effectively with the game on pause. If he does not return in 2 days he is kicked.

(I suppose this could be abused by a late player effectively turning a 1 day phase length continuously into a 3 day phase length. (Hence the possibly equally unsatisfactory default settings)

I guess I’m not the only one uncertain on this. Anyone have a more definite view?

It's really simple.
1.) With the turns setting you can set how long this setting should affect your game. Usually the first few turns are crucial for a proper game, so players usually want the first 2-5 turns without an "all-hold" order. If you set this to 90 or greater it will be in effect all the game.
2.) If the game catches a NMR, it will send the country in CD and repeat the same turn, so a replacement can be found. This will be repeated so many times as you set in the "Delay-option". So with a parameter of 2 you get 2 extensions of a turn before the game proceeds without a replacement. A parameter of 90 or greater will always wait for a player with a valid order.

So you want the "Serious" setting for your game.

Finally I understand, too! Good explanation. Perhaps the explanation in the game creation environment should be improved though.
Grahamso1 (1475 D)
21 Dec 17 UTC
Got it. Thanks a lot!!
Agreed, the explanation in the section isn’t clear on this. Also, I interpreted “serious” meaning a game with serious players, hence thought it meant looser not tighter setting regarding NMR ie with serious players, no one does NMR so less restrictive rules is still safe. That too would benefit from a footnote too perhaps
