Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

I won’t do another tournament like this unless the games are concurrent or very close to it. That’s been the dividing line between successful and unsuccessful among the 10-15 tournaments I’ve run. Once we get beyond a year or so things just start to fall apart. My preference here is to just call this and move on, especially as circumstances in my life have changed and made it nearly impossible to give any time to Diplomacy. I hope to at least keep a long-phase gunboat game going to keep me coming around, but it appears as though my run here is nearing an end.

Agree completely about the concurrent play. , Dr. Recommended. We really have Amby to thank for that one (dig dig). I wish we had held a stronger line on playing more than 2 games at a time when we started. Sorry to hear that you won't be able to play as much. Sadly all of the veteran players ultimately wind up shifting to gunboat only here. I've see it going on for years, and experienced it myself. Some of it is lifestyle/job changes, but I've managed that for decades, keeping Diplomacy as a constant. Unfortunately with the various problems afflicting the community (chiefly that ratings driving games rather than games driving games) that just go ignored, it's going to continue.

We have 13 signed up for game, and 12 or game 12. We lose a few more for games 13, 14, and 15. I will play these remaining games, but only if we play the remaining 5 games concurrently, and get them started by mid-September. I realize that this is not what we signed up for, but the reality is that the tournament was ruined by playing only to games at a time. If we cannot agree to get this finished by starting up all five games now, then I'm dropping out of the event, and will start recruiting committed players to attempt this concept again. Roll call requested please;

FoW padlocks

Quick Rules Question
In Classic, I am confident if an army in Portugal Attacks Spain while an Army in Spain attacks Portugal, both will fail. Would this rule still apply if the it were instead a fleet on the northern coast attacking Portugal and a fleet in Portugal moving to the southern coast?

Our game bugged out, and mods are looking at it. What do we do and what will happen?
So basically, We were playing World War IV 6.2. It was the first time we got our community of players, both on a subreddit and a discord, to play a big 36 player game. Didn't start 100% the best the first year, some players didn't get the rules and ended up starting with 2 units instead of 3.

I wonder why VDip is not using Territory Diagram to reveal the dinamics of territory occupation in time. Now it's working rather good. But for maps with neutrals it still has several bugs. We use this module on Diplomail. Please check: https://ibb.co/mFZF3o

Known World 901 question re rebuilt armies
The variant page says that "This map is build anywhere and has neutral standing armies that disband when dislodged, but will be rebuild if the relevant Home Supply Center is vacant and unowned during the build-phase in autumn." but looking at completed games, I don't see the standing armies getting rebuilt. Does this mean I need to always occupy my own SCs in the fall or else they turn back into neutral standing armies? Can someone explain this to me?

Mistake in Known World 901 variant
In "Known World 901" we have Principality of Kiev (short - Russia). But it's a mistake which I have fixed when I did the php-adaptation to Western Known World 901 variant. The power must be called as Kievan Rus (short - Rus). It's not Russia at all. So it must be also fixed in Known World 901 variant I think.
