Scoring systems?
The "create new games"-page currently has WTA and PPSC as the two options for scoring systems.

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.

Anonymous games
I've noticed that most of the new games on this website are set to "anonymous". Why is that? Why do the people setting up new games like "anonymous" so much?

What happens if you lose all of your units but still control a non-home supply centre?
I don't mean according to the Calhamer ruleset, but on this site; would you be defeated or live on as a zombie completely at the mercy of others?

FvA championship
Hello,

I propose to launch a FvA championship with 5 players.
Page 1 of 4

20 Aug 19 UTC
The championship is organised in 5 short seasons during which each player plays 2 games (once with F and once with A).

A victory gives 3 points.
A draw gives 1 point to each player.
A defeat gives no point.

A google spreadsheet will gather all results.

At the end of the 5 seasons, everyone will have played 2 times against everyone else.

If 10+ players want to join, we can make several pools.

Pool A
1. CptMike
2.
3.
4.
5.

May I suggest a seeding method be used to split the players into groups if the interest grows? Perhaps Vpoints?
CptMike (1232 D)
20 Aug 19 UTC
Yeap. If we have several pools, I will sort the players with their Vpoints

#1 Vpoints -> A.1
#2 Vpoints -> 2B.1
#3 -> C.1
#4 -> A.2
#5 -> B.2
etc

Ok. Will the games be unranked?
CptMike (1232 D)
20 Aug 19 UTC
Same for me. Up to you all to decide.
ubercacher16 (1743 D)
20 Aug 19 UTC
I'd like unranked, but we'll see what other people have to say.

I'm happy to join in if you need the extra body to make nice numbers, but if you have enough without me then I'd probably prefer not subjecting myself to more FvA than absolutely necessary :p
CptMike (1232 D)
21 Aug 19 UTC
FvA is not the funniest but it is the most equilibrated and one of the fastest... My personnal preference is North vs South but it is too long if many players are involved.

My idea is to set 1 day / phase but it depends on all players of course.
Mittag (1554 D)
21 Aug 19 UTC
1. CptMike
2. ubercacher16
3. Mittag
4. badivan1
5. mouse
6.

1 day / phase is necessary unless people want to play parallel games.

FvA is standard.. but maybe if there is a crowd for 1v1 tournaments here, then we could do one or two each year with a different map each time.

Here is the kind of spreadsheet that will be created to follow the games. ( In fact with 5 players, there are 4 rounds. Each player plays 8 games )

I am totally fine with 1 day / phase.
CptMike (1232 D)
23 Aug 19 UTC
We can make 2 groups of 3 and the first 2 of each group will be selected for the final pool of 4.

What is your mind ?

ubercacher16 (1743 D)
23 Aug 19 UTC
That would work, let's wait and see if we get more though.
Mittag (1554 D)

Will the results between the top two player in each group carry over, or will they be replayed?
CptMike (1232 D)
24 Aug 19 UTC
With the championship system as it is described here (below the score boards)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OsoyB8hTQxpAHxuRxv7UiKhlLvGPvnH8d496pvRXqiM/edit#gid=770885162
replays are highly unlikely

Hello all,

mouse prefers postponing given we are already 5.

So we would have :
1. ubercacher16 (1830)
2. Frozen frog (1661)
3. Mittag (1498)
4. badivan (1278)
5. CptMike (1188)

I create the sheet and post the link here.

Hello guys,

Spreadsheet is here :
* https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vQ9LMesHOogBDjwUsTqCBCHxAhS7jwtw9mUXTbqnVms/edit#gid=0

The rules are reminded there ( nb : 2 pts per victory and not 3 ).

For the First round, the games are the following :

FvA 2019 - 1.1 - uber vs Frozen
FvA 2019 - 1.2 - Frozen Dog vs Mittag
FvA 2019 - 1.3 - Mittag vs badivan
FvA 2019 - 1.4 - badivan vs CptMike
FvA 2019 - 1.5 - CptMike vs Frozen

Could :each French player create the game and inform the Austrian player by PM with a pwd ? ( 24 h / not anonymous / unranked )

Could each French player copy/paste the link to the game in this thread ?

Good luck !

Anyone want to take this world game?
I'm playing in World Peace Simulator-2, gameID=39267 , but I'm about to go away and am unsure if I'll be able to input my moves. If you are interested, PM me and I'll tell you what country I'm playing. I don't want to just say it here as the game is anonymous. Then I can use the country switch tool to give it away. Please take a look if you are interested.
Thanks!

Crashed Europa Renovatio Games
At least two games of the new Europa Renovatio variant have had problems and crashed, although so far most of these crashes have been resolved. This is the first time I've encountered this issue here at vDip. How concerned should we players be about this?

This is really a message for mods. .. but I am not getting any response in the ModForum. I have been unable to load orders in the above game for a number of days now .. and am receiving increasingly threatening messages about missing turns and a possible ban. I can't communicate with any of the other players in the game. Does anyone know what is going on?

"Theoretical" Game
So there's a map called Fubar (https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=39). Let's say I created a game called "HA! Pranked!" where it was choose your own country (So I choose the big one), and then I make the SC count to win 8 (greater than any other country has, except the big one which starts with 10). 5 other people are foolish enough to join the game. Would I just win automatically then?

Move Didn't Go Through
I was looking for clarification from the Mod team as to why a certain unit was not dislodged in a gunboat game with 1.5 day phases, so I sent a message in the Mod forum yesterday morning. I haven't received a response and the next phase of the game is about to go through. What is the proper action in this situation? Should I vote extend and hope for a last-minute extend? Thanks for advice.
