Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

Very nice to see icons showing who has actions to perform in the current turn.

Re: Premature win declaration

Usually not, but if you feel the solo could've been prevented if this bug didn't exist please email the mods at webdipmod@gmail.com and we'll take appropiate action. OK. Thanks. (Not just prevented. The game was awarded as 18 SCs vs 14 when I had two retreats into enemy territories. Should have bee...

Re: Premature win declaration

I just lost a game due to this. I don't suppose there's any chance of erasing game results caused by the bug awarding an incorrect victory?

He and the rest of us have been patient with your concerns, even as they've become less constructive criticism and more incessant whining. Nonetheless, you continue to attack those changes, and now you let your disdain for them carry over to complaints about the team doing such totally unreasonable...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

You're being an asshole right now. Take your attitude elsewhere. Stop wasting my team's time that they could be using helping to ensure that all of our accounts are secure. Don't we have any rules about conduct and personal abuse on these boards? I don't believe I'm wasting anyone's time. Nobody ha...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

You realize that the people encouraging you to email the mods about impending NMRs are the very same people who handle those emails, right? I do realise that. It's astounding. "A few extra NMR emails"? More like a few hundred or a few thousand. In my experience (mostly playing larger map games, not...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

You have no idea how much time the volunteer mods with daytime jobs took out out of their schedule last night to minimise the damage caused by the phishing scam. Not exactly, but I'm pretty sure the amount of time consumed daily would be greater if they were contacted about every possible NMR that ...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

We don't want people doing this. We want them to email the mods if they notice an impending NMR instead. And for an example of why this is totally impractical, we need only to look at what's happening right now. We have an announcement that some people have used some fake link to go to another site...

The main page is where it should be. I received a PM about a tournament in Feb. I just saw it a week ago!

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

I still disagree. But even better. I also hate being targeted for using deadlines everyone agreed to before the game started. The point of having a certain period for turns is to have time for the turn planning itself and the press. The deadline is a longest-case scenario and while players have the...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

That’s already 8 option brackets each with between 2 and infinite options. If we add options every time we want to make a change then this list will grow and eventually we will be a caricature of an overly complex system that could accomplish the same end result better with a simpler system. Fair e...

I also do not think this will cause an uptick in people not readying.
That is absolutely false. We have all experienced players readying because they have been explicitly asked/reminded. Now that won't happen, because we won't know who it is.

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

As people have noted upthread, NMRs are a fact of life in online games. I would never email a moderator about that, and just accept it as something that means I may have to change my orders at the last minute. Indeed, it can sometimes add a touch a drama as the clock counts down, wondering if someo...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

I don't know why everyone's complaining about retreats. Just look at the board and you can see easily enough who has retreats. But maybe that could be a doable fix. Idk, I'm not a Dev. I almost always play larger map variants, as I find the standard game pretty boring. If you can "just look at the ...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

I mean, I don't blame you for taking advantage of a CD when you see it coming. I just think losing the ability for any power to see it coming increases the quality of the game as a whole. I can't agree with this. Seeing it coming makes it more likely that the power will be hammered. One of the most...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

People email us to emergency pause normal games all the time. I've never done it and never seen it done. Surely you don't want to be handling more email? I'm not sure how this change alters your ability to avoid people in future anonymous public games, remind via press that someone hasn't entered/r...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

I'm not sure how turns dragging longer is an issue. It's not my experience that readying up is the standard anywhere outside of high quality gunboat, in which case it's also not frowned upon when people can't. Removing the means to target people for using the whole phase length doesn't seem problem...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

That is why for pending NMR's you see "At least 1 player still needs to enter moves" which allows you to contact the mods to prevent the pending NMR, just like you can do currently. As for turns dragging on longer, if you enter a game with 24 hour phases, expect the game to take 24 hours each and e...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

One definite disadvantage: You can't even tell who has orders to put in any more. If it's a retreat turn, you used to be able to tell at a glance who was retreating. Now, what? Read through the orders looking for "(dislodged)"? Ugh.

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

Not that it matters, but I have to wonder: Were people seriously scraping the site to try to determine who an anonymous player is via their NMR counter? Wouldn't that only matter if they are not entering moves, in which case they're likely to drop out anyhow. Is it really necessary to remove the che...
