Pacific Northwest FTF
I've only ever played FTF with people who don't really care about the game and want to be done after a year, and I always feel a twinge of jealousy when I sew those people having fun playing in real life on that crappy coast across the country. This is just a post to see who might be interested in getting something set up on this side of the country. I'm in the Seattle area.

Conundrum
So the people who make the schedules at my school are kinda dumb. I signed up for both AP Micro/Macroeconomics and AP European History. Only one class of each is being offered. And they happen to be the same hour. So I need to drop one and pick up some other course. I really don't know, so what (preferably AP) course would you suggest for me to take instead of AP Micro/Macroeconomics (because there's no chance I'll drop Euro)?

Cheating accusations
Without mentioning names or game ID's, can I please clarify something.

Making cheating accusations via in-game global press is not allowed, right? The correct procedure being to email the mods who will investigate?

Getting Germany every single game
Hi everybody, I'd like to ask if anyone has experience with an account getting a certain country every single game. One of my friends who I've played in several games against has drawn Germany out of the pot every single time. We're onto the fifth time out of 5 games he's gotten Germany.

I'd put it up to chance but we've reached 5 sigma and are on our way to 6. Thoughts?

I listened to an interesting episode of On Point (probably the best radio show there is, btw) a few days ago about Coding Boot Camps. Here's a link to the episode and an older article if you don't have time to listen.

Looking for a Modern Diplomacy Analysis.
I have never played the variant before but I have been looking at some archived games of it on webdiplomacy recently. I was hoping that people would be willing to share any thoughts on it they have. I would love a country by country analysis.

I've played as Turkey more often than anything else. So I can tell you at least about it right now. It's a decently strong position, and can pick up 3 or 4 Centers in the first Autumn phase. It's especially strong if you have a good relationship with Egypt. Because, unlike in Classic, Turkey is less capable of turtling up the way Britain and Egypt can. With this, your biggest target/threat should be someone to your north. You could do a modified Juggernaut, but it's much easier to stop than in Classic. And Russia stabbing you wouldn't be too hard (looking at you, Jeff Kuta). So I would suggest working with Ukraine and maybe Poland against Russia. Your central ally should be Egypt, though. You two can powerhouse the Mediterranean with you in the North and Egypt dominating the South. (And, yeah, a lot of attributes of Egypt on this map are like Turkey in classic.)
Egypt, being a corner power, has nothing to worry about from the south or east. As such, it has and excellent defensive position, and can better focus its units on whatever nation it chooses, typically Italy or Turkey.

The West meanwhile is extraordinarily tense. You have powerhouses like never before with Italy, Germany, Spain, Britain and France. With no Switzerland DMZ, it gets tough
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)

Italy, France, Ukraine and Russia suck. Others are OK
@Jeff Kuta: I disagree about Italy. Italy is very powerful, in my experience, starting from the first year.
civwarbuff (305 D)

I appreciate all of the responses. Looking at the board, Italy appears to be a monster. I am not sure that I like Spain's position very much.
Spain is essentially forced to attack France. If there is a strong France, Spain is screwed. The position is, however, easily defensible.

He is also confronted with a tricky diplomatic position as far as England goes as well though. If not clever in the early game, I see him getting bottled up very quickly.
Most of the time, Spain and England agree to give Gibraltar to Spain, and Morocco to England.

I was Russia once, and based on this one data point (I soloed), I would say that the corner powers have a bit more leverage since by definition there are more 'internal' countries. This is mitigated slightly with Spain (the new France) by having Gib, but I think Egypt (the new Turkey), Russia (the new Russia), and England (the new England) in general benefit from this board. Some interesting points; No impassible Swiz, Ireland SC, Lapland, and two black seas spaces change it up just as much as having additional countries.
I always considered Russia to be powerful, due to the 5 starting SCs, and Poland and Ukraine (generally weaker countries) surrounding it. What's the general opinion of Modern Russia?

Italy, Turkey, and Germany normally have very good first years but then fade. I've found that this variant skews heavily towards the corner powers -- Spain, England, Russia, and (more so than any other) Egypt -- due to the "build anywhere" feature. In classic, corner powers are difficult to eliminate but are also difficult to solo with, since new units take so long to get up to the front lines. In modern, the corner powers do not have this same handicap.
A_Tin_Can (2249 D)

Russia has no guarantees in Classic either, but still does well.

i hate the stereotype that Spain has to attack France. The Spain-France alliance is the easiest to maintain all game
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)

France absolutely should not let Spain have a free pass. As a corner power, Spain is already very strong.
