Divided States Team Game
Hey guys! Back in the day, we used to do a lot of team games on here(chaos map, classic, etc). Im curious if people would be interested in doing a team game of the divided states map... Yes, I know, 50 people is a LOT to get for a team game. Here is how it would work.

Ended up picking up an extra shift at work today, so didn't get to spend time yet making set teams. will be doing that before work tomorrow.
So I'm guessing given the number of replies we'll be doing a ER game?
Looks fun!

butterhead (979 D)
26 Apr 21 UTC
@LexLuthor- it will be on ER since we didn't get enough for the 50 states. basically, you will be assigned a team. the goal is to be the last team standing. while you may work with other teams, there is no "oh lets just be the final 2 teams and draw. the only draw allowed is for 1 team to be the last team standing, unless there is a 100% genuine stalemate line that cannot be broken.

Err... I'd be in for a DS team game. Anyway last experience showed -me- this rules format is not what I'm looking for in a team game. I advocate or a combined team SC sum.of majority. I'm out and I state i don't want to make a point to hinder your soon game start

Deezee (1579 D)
27 Apr 21 UTC
@butterhead do you think it might make more sense to play until one team has a majority of the remaining centers? I feel like otherwise the clean up while you finish off the other teams might get a bit tedious

Also, are the teams public or secret?
ER has too much stalemate anyways
butterhead (979 D)
27 Apr 21 UTC
Teams will be public. And I would be willing to say a team only has to control like, 80% or something like that? I don't want it to be too low because that is too easy, but I'm fine with not making it the entire board as well.
I'm in the group of preferring DS over ER.

I don't mind between ER and DS. They're both amazing maps. I think we should maybe at least try for DS if we can.

Another option is to use a much smaller map such 'A Modern Europe'.

Alliances could be designated at the beginning of the game :

1/ POR + SPA + FR + IT
2/ UK + IRL + SWE + FIN
3/ GER + HOL + TCH + POL
4/ RUS + LIT + UKR + GEO
5/ TUR + GRE + SER + RUM

In designating countries before, it can played 'no press' and allies must fing how to coordinate without messaging.
Sorry, but I'm in only if it's DS.
Quick recap.

Both?

@Butterhead I would definitely advocate lowering the threshold. When a team controls like 60% of SCs, the only realistic way to prevent them from taking the rest is either a stalemate. As a result, the game either never finishes or the ending is just or formality. For perspective, 60% SCs on ER is 185 units, which is a 62 unit lead over all the other teams comined.

The only thing raising the SC threshold does is it creates a bunch of tedious clean up and it increases the likelihood that one of the minority team manages to find a stalemate position and hold it, which is especially a concern given that a lot of ER games have ended in stalemates in the past.

Either map is fine with me.
This sign up thread became very confusing - I would like to play as long as there is at least a day and a half between turns - if you still need a player, I'm in
ubercacher16 (1639 D)
27 Apr 21 UTC
Heywood what?
I agree with Deezee, 60% is dominant enough to establish that as a victory condition.

Listing pronouns
One of the pitfalls of online Diplomacy I fall into is that I often don't know the genders of my fellow players and get the pronouns wrong. As far as I'm aware, the site doesn't yet have a feature for us to list the pronouns we use. Maybe we could all start listing the pronouns we use in our profile quotes to cut down on the confusion and ambiguity? I went ahead and put mine there.

Random Idea for variant
I guess this would be tricky to code, but how is this idea for vDip?

During a build phase and where a power has available build capacity, any unit sitting in a supply centre may be boosted by a power of 1, ie, doubled. This unit will require twice the normal ongoing supply maintenance.

VP
Kinda curious on VP... I understand that the gains are lesser as one gets higher, but how does one player (for example) get to over 2000 with under 12 total games and only 1 win? I know its not that consequential in the grand scheme of things. but as I get to a moderately respectable total, the vp gains from a win or draw seem trivial and disproportionate to lost vp when losing. How does VP calculations actually work?
