Anonymous Games
Anonymous Games grant liars a shelter to do there worst, making abusive and absurd offered and generally making me passionately hate this game, which can lead to NMRs . Having to be out there means you have to have honor, and enables revenge. I have seen allies pitch in by hopping from one neutral territory to yhe next in the name of their promises. This site seems to be for the childish.

Replace PPSC with something rank-based?
I've put together a length proposal over on PlayDip to provide a rank-based scoring system for draws that's similar to the Carnage system used in several North American Dip tournaments today.

Looking for game sitters
I'm looking for a game sitter for three games while I'm out from 1 Jul to 22 Jul. PM me for details.

Also, is there supposed to be a thread for these? I can't find it but the help page says there is one.

Looking for someone to take over my country (Not in a bad position)
Currently 13/35 countries remain and my country, Brazil, is in 8th place after some set backs with NMRs. Currently allied with the 2nd place country, Argentina, as a fight between the two of us will ultimately be the doom of our existence. Argentina has said that a substitute will not charge the alliance between our two countries.

Reply if interested in taking over.

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

[Variant] Nautical
The Classic map, but with bigger sea territories!

Sky_Hopper (765 D)

1) BAR is merged into NWG.
2) IRI is merged into NAO.
3) ENG is merged into MAO.
4) HEL is merged into NOR.
5) BOT and SKA are merged into BAL., while still maintaining the connection between DEN and SWE.
6) GOL is merged into West Med.
7) ADR is extended to touch GRE and NAP.
8) East Med is extended to touch TYR.
9) ION is abolished.
10) AEG is merged into East Med.
11) East Med is now adjacent to BLA.

That should be everything.

There's gonna be a lot of bounces going on...

Balance-wise: France will have reduced early-game power in the north since Lon-MAO will happen most of the time (Bre-MAO, Par-Gas, Mar-Spa). StP will become a lot more vulnerable, so Russias may end up sending 2N/2S more often (or just holding an army in Mos and sending War-Ukr). Russia moving to Fin in S01 is more viable if they go 2N/2S and try to avoid a bounce with Germany. Lepanto will be a LOT easier (yay Italy!), and Turkey will probably have a bad day with Smy, Con, and Bul all under threat. Outside of openings, the strait of Gibraltar is easier to hold from either side, and a lot more centers come closer together.

All in all I'd say that the countries that profit most from these changes are England and Italy, while the ones who suffer the most are Turkey, Germany and Russia, with France and Austria not really suffering much.

By eliminating several provinces, you have made this variant significantly more dense than Standard, which will tend to make the game more static and stalemate lines easier to form. You may want to rethink this.

@Greenflame:
Would F Con help?

Or more fleets in general?
Enriador (1491 D (B))
02 Jun 18 UTC
I think making the variant "Build Anywhere" may help.
Sky_Hopper (765 D)
02 Jun 18 UTC
Or "Custom Start"?
Greenflame (1217 D)
02 Jun 18 UTC
I think that anywhere where there's 2 SCs separated by one ocean space, there should be a fleet in each SC or at least adjacent to that ocean space. Custom start could probably solve a lot of issues.
JECE (1184 D)
03 Jun 18 UTC
I think that the point would be to make ocean travel faster than land travel. That better represents the reality Diplomacy is supposed to mimic.
Greenflame (1217 D)
03 Jun 18 UTC
It makes control of some ocean spaces a lot more winner-takes-all since you're merging several strategic locations into an area that one fleet can occupy.
JECE (1184 D)
03 Jun 18 UTC
I wonder how the game would play with just 1 sea space, ha ha. Or maybe 2-4: Black, Atlantic and maybe Baltic and Mediterranean.

Taking over Civil Disorders should be free of charge
Reasoning: the player who takes over a Civil Disorder is not just putting themself in a precarious position (as they must evaluate everybody's styles and strategies) but they are also saving the game's balance and fun.

In order to reward/incentive people to take more CDs, I believe that making it free of charge (rather than current 50% discount) would be for the best. Thoughts?
