Around the World 2
As some of you may remember, I ran the "Around the World" tournament 2 years ago (visible on Tournaments page). I'm looking at perhaps doing it again, depending on interest. What do y'all think?

So Many Toxic Players??
Is it just me, or has the amount of toxic players on this site recently skyrocketed? Over the course of just a few games, I’ve seen people shoving strange moves in each others faces like a dog that crapped on the carpet, players belittling each other, piss poor attitudes after stabs, etc. - I don’t mean to complain, but I’m also seeing how it is effecting new players and this is generally something I can’t stand.

Can you see who all the users you have blocked in one place?
Reason for asking, I would like to join a divided states game that is nearing full, but someone in the game has me blocked, or I have someone in the game blocked. I just want to make sure it's not my fault that I can't join the game, even though I don't think I have ever blocked someone. If you could help my situation I'd be very thankful.

Macca, you're playing with the pre-1980 rules? Seriously?

I'm not sure, I don't know what the rules are.
Trieste to Ionian
Vienna to Naples
Budapest to Bulgaria
kaner406 (1998 D Mod (B))

@drano - does Mr. Finkelmuiyer's move to Bulgaria succeed? I was under the impression that the revised '81 version of the rules expressly forbids the Budapest to Bulgaria gambit in the opening round.
Didn’t the Corsican Protocol override that?
drano019 (2609 D Mod)
23 Apr 22 UTC
We simply need to confirm what ruleset we are playing by. In my experience, standard rules used if not mentioned are the '97 rules - which includes the Corsican Protocol as Amby mentioned.

If this is the case, Finkel's move to Bulgaria is considered valid.
Macca573 (1532 D)
23 Apr 22 UTC
what....
I was using the '86 rules, which famously nullifies the Corsican Protocol if there is a Russian player present. But since we don't have one yet, my move holds [see article 3, section 2, subsection 6, "balancing the game in the presence of Russia"].
drano019 (2609 D Mod)
23 Apr 22 UTC
Finkel -

I think you're mixing up your rule sets. Article 3, Section 2, subsection 6, "balancing the game in the presence of Russia" is part of the high controversial 2014 rules which introduced the Crimean Protocol in response to Russia's actions in Ukraine. Ended up causing quite the schism as well, but I digress.
gopher27 (1606 D Mod)
23 Apr 22 UTC
Remember though that under the 1687 rules, the Crimean Protocol results in the removal of one Russian army from the board for 2 years followed by an automatic Civil Disorder.
Well I'm glad we got that sorted.

So far only Macca, Mr F and I have got orders in. You all better start getting yours in soon, as there's only 9 hours left until the end of spring orders.
kaner406 (1998 D Mod (B))
24 Apr 22 UTC
@gopher - the 1987 ruleset you mean? obviously a typo.

If we're playing the '97 rules, and not the 2014 rules, then I will order:

Paris - Warsaw
Marseilles - Rumania
Brest - Sevastapol
Mr. Finkelmuiyer (1599 D)

I will assent to the '97 rules if we have a gentlemen's agreement to keep in the Triple-Axle Deplacement Double Bluff Maneuver. I know it's technically optional under '97, but I personally find that it really encapsulates the spirit of that decade.
gopher27 (1606 D Mod)

This feels like it is just an intentional attempt to distract people from the Winning thread in order to bury it in hopes of it eventually locking with the Australian coalition winning.

BTW, the Winning thread would need to fall onto like the 5th or 6th page of threads in the forum.
Some great gains for the players who got their orders in. For those busy with conspiracy theories, they are clearly way behind the starter's gun in picking up some tasty SCs.
JECE (1534 D)

'97 ruleset with a concurrent game of Bourse, right? In that case, I'll release the Kraken in the Mid-Atlantic.

Fall orders:
Fleet Moscow move to Mid-Atlantic Ocean
Fleet Switzerland move to Mid-Atlantic Ocean
Army Iceland support hold Mid-Atlantic Ocean

Build phase:
Spawn Kraken in Mid-Atlantic Ocean

Mr. Finkelmuiyer, you can thank me later when the British Isles fall into the sea, eliminating your archnemesis Macca573.
Macca573 (1532 D)
25 Apr 22 UTC
Seeing the situation in England, I think it best I build A Nuclear Powerplant in Bulgaria. Might have to cut costs to get it done quickly before the kraken arrives.
drano019 (2609 D Mod)
25 Apr 22 UTC
Ok look. Y'all are getting ridiculous. JECE, Macca - come on now. Amby is trying to reboot this, and we get this?

Since noone else seems to want to do it, I'll be our "GM" for the game and rules arbiter. Here's what we have:

We are using the '97 rule set. Corsican Protocol is in effect. Finkel has asked for consent to implement the Triple-Axle Deplacement Double Bluff Maneuver.

Amby - England
Macca - Turkey
Finkel - Austria
Kaner - France

We have Germany, Russia, and Italy left. We will give an additional 24 hours to get them filled, or move on.

Now that that's clear, JECE, are you interested in one of those powers?
JECE (1534 D)
25 Apr 22 UTC
I'll play both Germany and England with half strength units.
JECE (1534 D)
25 Apr 22 UTC
Sorry, I meant Germany and Italy
Ooh this is getting exciting! Thanks drano for stepping up for the GMing.
What happened in the adjudication? Or is it self assessed?
Does the GM adjudicate under the '97 rules? Last time I played '97, the GM was whoever controlled Clyde, but I forget if that was the actual rules or simply as a result of the GM passing out during the spring of 1904.
I guess it depends on how old school you want to go. Alan Calhamer had a very different take on on what preceded the '97 rules. As drano is GM he can weigh in on this one.

The Aussies have let me down
I just discovered that there is a town in Australia called Texas. Furthermore, because it is on a state border, there are in fact two. And most importantly, Peter Sherwin was from Texas, Qld/NSW. So Australia's greatest cattle baron and largest private owner of ranchland was from Texas.

Convoys with +2 strength variant?
Would a Classic variant with this change (i.e. armies convoyed to a place bringing an attack power of 2 units) be interesting? A convoy involving more than one ship wouldn't have the attack power stack, by the way. If a variant already exists with this property, what is it?
