Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

Changes to make PPSC better
Currently, the PPSC system rewards points in a solo. It has a number of perverse effects on gameplay. In the subsequent post(s), I will outline changes that could reform PPSC and reduce its detrimental impact.

Two winners in a game?
What happens if a game is set with winning conditions lower than 50% of all SCs and two players reach that goal in the same season? Is it a tie? Does the game continue until one has more?

Illogical Rating Assignments
Take a look at the following link:
https://vdiplomacy.com/hof.php?gameID=37006

Now, you can see the "brains" of the rating system. As you can see, the system deducts less from a player who CD'd than a player who kept playing and survived. Why? Shouldn't players be held accountable for their CDs?

Ready Button Retreat Bug
I'm Britain in this game:
https://www.vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=37793

I have a retreat due. There is only one valid retreat location. I click the "Ready" button, but it's not saving the retreat. We're playing with rulebook press, so there is no "save" button currently.

It's basically taking the Lepanto (2-player) variant and turning it into a 6-player death match.

Supply Centres occur in 4 locations - Planets, Admiral Ships, Orbital Space Centres and the Galaxy Centre

There are Fleets and Armies (scouts and battleships). Fleets can move 2 hexes, but can't occupy planets. Only Fleets can move through Space Junk. Only Fleets can occupy Orbital Space Centres. Fleets and Armies can occupy the Galaxy Centre.

There are wormholes scattered throughout the board, these are represented by the Purple dot-lines. Fleets and Armies can use the wormholes (making J47 adjacent to J54 - for instance). They also join "underneath" the galaxy from the outer zone in the middle of each sector, J5 is adjacent to J42 - which is easy to see as you just follow the Hex-line to the hex on the other end of the map.

Each faction has two Admiral Ships. These are stationary, and ownership of these is represented underneath the map (in the squares A1-A12, which correspond to the Hex numbers). Admiral Ships can support as per a Fleet or Army. But they cannot move and are considered stationary. and cannot retreat. If an Admiral Ship is conquered then they conquering power becomes the owner of that Admiral Ship and the previous rules apply (ie. they can't then move the Admiral Ship). An Admiral Ship cannot be voluntarily disbanded.

The winner is the player who first controls 7 Admiral Ships - NOT by SC count.

Players start scattered across the board - Armies starting on Planets, and Fleets on the other Hexes. So Kakaememas would start with the following:
6 SCs - A11, A12, G34, H13, E11, H24 (meaning a shortfall of 4 SCs to begin with)
2 Admiral Ships - A11, A12
6 Armies - G34, H13, E11, H24, D17, D18
4 Fleets - G33, G35, F28, F29

-

I'm fairly certain those were the rules. As I remember them anyway.

@ Flame - I think it just needs programming for the Admiral Ships to function and a largemap to be made. I'd love to do more to develop this one, but I simply don't have the time at the moment to do this. I'm more than happy for someone else to pick up and run with finishing it off though.

Thank you for the variant rules.

Caucasia
I think the variant Caucasia would benefit from being played with a set end year and winner takes all. One could think of Caucasia as a tight C-diplo scoring variant.

Bone
My friend group and I have decided to shift all of our games from WebDiplomacy to VDiplomacy after the "Incident". Apologies for all of our bone games that will cloud up the search bar. However feel free to join any of them that you want, the password will always be the same, bone (unless we actually want it to be just us, in which case the password would be something else). Language may be offensive because some of my friends don't understand common decency.

Newspaper Game
A while ago, some players in threadID=80668 discussed playing another Newspaper game. Meanwhile, more than 7 players have shown their interest to participate in it, but no consensus on the specific settings of the game has been reached yet. I have created this thread to set up the next Newspaper game and discuss its settings.

limited number of games
I can only be in 2 games at once since I'm a new player on vdiplomacy, however I've played a lot of diplomacy and know how to play the game. It should include the number phases you have taken on normal diplomacy while determining how many games you can be in.

Game number 28
I've been analyzing the ratings of some players recently (Yoshimon, ksindelar, and I), and I've noticed a really odd pattern. In each of our 28th games, we've suffered a major drop in rating, but our ratings quickly bounded up in the 29th game. Is this a coincidence?
