True, you can sometimes hear them repeating "exterminate" in a dalek voice as they all attack you together, especially when you're Austria.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Key lepantos aren’t unheard of in gunboat. They just require a knowing and competent Austrian player to recognize them, as well as proper tactics and positioning by Italy as he needs to make it abundantly clear that he isn’t attacking. Sending one army to Trieste and the other to Apulia is usually ...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=250825 But only because Turkey opened anti-Russia. Nice! Also, Italy still convoyed to Syria, and did not move into ADR + Alb. So, that is the first time I see an Italy that aborted its attack on Austria in 02. Most importantly, Italy didn't open to Venice....

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Have you just had a really bad experience (or experiences) with Austria against the bots? Although I agree, if Italy attacks you straight off the bat in a bot game it is really hard to recover. Even just in normal gunboat it's really hard to recover. Is there an example of someone who managed to so...

By the way, food, you get the opposite of OMSUG (is that the acronym?) from me. I've been amazed that I've been getting such a free ride. Definitely investigate me, but I think the dive should check how closely I've asked questions, investigated, and tried to dig up old posts. I may suck at it. And...

I didn't manage to iso everyone as I wanted tonight, but I think I found a better strategy anyway. So here are a few points I want to make. One, I am more convinced than ever Fox is scum. Fox is totally coasting and most of their iso is flimflam. However what convinced me is that I believe brainbom...

@Kalel, on your D2 readlist (pg 128) you had emc as "townlean" and you said I was "possibly town". Can you clarify why emc was only a townlean, and what made you upgrade me from null to possibly town? ... Bunny recap - BB like him as town.

Re: MAFIA 49 -Avengers "Re-release"- GAME THREAD [HIDDEN]

Based on the logic of the SK always wanting to be on the winning wagon, I will say with 95% certainty that either Rivera or Espresso is Thanos. Given Espresso’s doc claim, We should Lynch Rivera next, I guess. rivera is a very good SK candidate, but we should not be hunting the SK at this point.

I do love this setup though.

When does night phase end? At 6 tonight or is it in 36 hours?
7 a.m. tomorrow (I presume 6 a.m. for you).

Thanos is not omnipotent. He can't see who has stones. All he can do is make sure he is on the winning wagon. Day one he did it by the power of his stone. Day 2 he didn't have to. While he might want to get the soul stone, he doesn't have to. He can just coast, always winning... And maybe collectin...

I thought Maniac had saved himself with the Time Stone and was covering for him to try to draw item thief/NK attempts. I figured he would understand what I was doing. Idk why Yuuki used the stone. Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Maybe he used it early when he was one of the candidate wagons and he...
