GR2 have been updated. Unfortunately, VI is on the top here too.top here too.

Re: May GhostRatings Published

I have the impression that under the category "DSS/SoS, Classic Map, Full Press, Non-Live" World games are counted too. (Or for that matter, games from all variants.) World Games (and other variants, aside from live and 1v1) get counted in the main list while the Classic Map list is just for your s...

When we doing a neglected for too long "World Diplomacy IX" tournament?
I will personally veto any such tournament on the grounds of post-traumatic stress disorder.
What if we made it Public Press World Diplomacy IX tournament?

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

The last seen indication had a use, in my opinion always, to know when someone had seen a message or not. Someone can tell that this is useless in a game of lies and deception, but it kept some things in a line. I found that to be way more of a pain than a feature. For instance, sometimes I want to...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

Additionally, Tournament Directors in games can now post in global which will show their message with a "Game Director:" bold pre-face that cannot be replicated by anyone in the game. I’m very bummed I never thought to spoof the Tournament Director before this!! That’s freakin’ hilarious, did someb...

Re: Anonymous Changes and Online Indicators

Love it, awesome stuff guys! One thing I personally would prefer is keeping some kind of indication which countries have an action in a round, just not colour coding if orders were set or finalize. After a round goes by the high level way to see what went down is to see what countries have retreats ...

Re: Gunboat Strategy: Italy

In my eyes, the cool thing about Italy is there are a TONNE of alliance options for him. He's a swing country that has loads of influence over the direction of the game in the early years. He has a strong influence over pacing on either or both sides of the board, and the secret sauce is managing th...

Re: Confessions of a Meta-Gamer

We really could use a specific definition of what "meta-gaming" is. It seems like there is a huge spectrum here. Everything from definitive cheating on one hand to using common sense on the other. It seems like there is a school of thought that says 1) looking at a person's game history, 2) figurin...

Re: Confessions of a Meta-Gamer

Village Idiot, what do you mean in the opening post by entering a game with no intention to win? An example of that would joining or perhaps taking over a country that had gone into civil disorder just to help impact the game in a way that helps/hurts somebody you know in that game. Or if you just ...
