Re: World Diplomacy Championships 2019

How does a globetrotter like you not have a GoPro? I thought that was up there with a backpack capable of chilling Franzia as essential travel items.

Re: Should Italy open west more?

France can certainly be your first major opening push of the game, but it's critical that you don't just throw yourself at France before anyone else has. France is very frequently attacked early by England and/or Germany in this metagame, and even when France gets the choice of who to fight, Italy i...

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

You say you rail against tribalism and heated rhetoric...but then in the same message you effectively say "those that I disagree with are going to lead us to totalitarianism!!!". You don't see the cognitive dissonance there? It is hard for me to not be desensitized to this style of rhetoric when pr...

Re: Not a game for dyslexics!

I basically threw a game I thought I couldn't lose as Austria by accidentally attacking Venice twice in a row while trying to vacate Tyrolia and go to Vienna. Felt bad. Been there done that lol.

Someone really need to make a movie about this. The Australians tried a while ago:

Hollywood just to add more hogs and more guns and I am sure they will be onto a winner.

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

[I seem to have posted prematurely. This was meant to be included in the original response.] At the very least it feels very disingenuous for you to criticize me for discussing the very people who are the subject of Fluminator's OP. Fluminator asked if they were right, not if they had power. I maint...

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

I'm not saying anything about Peterson or Shapiro... I haven't brought them up in this thread. They're certainly not oppressed. They make a lot of money for being strict gatekeepers of the right-wing end of polite society, and their most meaningful punches are to the right, not the left. If they eve...

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

flash, that's all well and good and I largely agree, but we aren't talking about the abstract limits of the right of free speech, but instead their weaponization by a faction of Western society hellbent on destroying it. The people Fluminator described in the OP aren't out to find principled limits ...

I'd like to amend my answer. I actually prefer to whip out the grenade launcher. Get 'em in a big cluster all at once so that they start tripping over each other and the next shot is easier. BANG!

Caveat that we're not even done with the series yet, the following commentary only reflects finished games, and even once we finish this is only a sample size of seven...

No Lol, this one is new to me. Love it. @OP: The answer should be obviously yes, in a functional society not on the verge of total unraveling due to a cold civil war decades in the making.
