I can. But it wouldn’t be following the rules of diplomacy.

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

JECE, if I recall correctly, your method only works when powers are NMRing or CDing. No, my e-mail talks about "NMR'd or had been silent in press", "NMR or long silence in communication" and "length of time since each Great Power last sent press." I also touched on a separate method that works with...

Yeah, after the changes to anonymous games were introduced I explained to the mods how easy it would still be to break anonymity. The mods agreed with me, but they halved my cash prize because they thought my method " difficult to to ". If goldfinger0303's description is accurate, then ChippeRock's ...

goldfinger0303: Could you update the tournament webpage with the crossed out names of players that got replaced in their games, like the name of the original Russia in Group A Public Press? That was the norm in prior tournaments.

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

The scoring system was designed to emulate WTA scoring, with PPSC scoring (extended to drawn games) as a sort of tiebreaking criteria.

Re: Expanding universe

Um, I don't see what the "further" adds to Mercy's sentence (I think it could be dropped), but the "farther" that appears later in the sentence is perfectly accurate in the English I know.

The name was changed by Atatürk's government. You can read more here:

Also keep in mind that the "Classic" map is an established board game with decades of history behind it. It's hardly comparable to the "Modern" variant.

Re: User names changing

We allow plenty of people to change their usernames. But only when their username exposes their real name. And for obvious reasons, no we will not give a list of those people. The other option is to win Zultar's special prize on the 12 days of giveaways (durga). Thanks for clarifying. I was beginni...

There you have it, ssorenn. The easiest way is to get yourself banned and then wait a few months. Just make sure it's bad enough that they don't give you your old account back.

Yeah unfortunately we have a rather rude user base towards women which encourages them to not reveal their gender . . . Maybe, but I think that it's worse than that.
