Is there any 5 vs 5 games?
I really hate and tried of being stabbed all the time, there are so few players with honesty.
I just want to play a game with tactics and conversations, is there any possibility that to enter a 5 vs 5 (or fewer) games?

Why someone can left a diplomacy game?
Can someone explain why and how?
Isn't the rule stating that CD may occur if player missed to play 2 turns without login? Then why a "LEFT" occured?

Points Display
Why does the number of D-Points displayed next to a player's name equal their available points instead of their total points? Total points would be a better measure of skill.

Points aren't a measure of skill at all.

Typically, your points do let you participate in games with more experienced players. However, as TrPrado pointed out, points are by no means, an accurate indicator of skill.

Mmm, they do measure some sort of minimum level of skill - you do have to be able to win and/or draw at at least a slightly higher rate than "complete noob" in whatever types of games you do play in order to increase your point value, otherwise you're going to be stuck on 100 points available forever.

After that, it doesn't tell you anything other than someone's had time to play some games - maybe they win heaps and won a few big point games, maybe they just play heaps and win tiny points each time, maybe they only play gunboat, or only play press, or... lots of variables beyond that. :-)
I also have a question while we're at it: How can someone's available points + points in play not equal their total points?

Because points in play doesn't necessarily account for anonymous games.
thanks.

Well, to really look at ''skill level'' you should look at every game a player has played, and then evaluate. Take into account CDs, and other things like that such as special rules. Even then you don't know as if it isn't only public chat, you don't know if they have good Diplomacy.

I can bet all my points in my next game and lose them, putting me back at 100 D and appear just like any brand new player...

My Ghost-rating will not vary this much. And is a much better measure of skill.

I've never looked up my ghost rating, but seeing the http address, I just tried to look it up, and tried to access the May 2016 list...but it wouldn't let me see the list and wanted to send me an email so I could look at the ghost ratings or get my approval to allow me to see the list.....I'm an old fuddy duddy and not that good with Internet stuff

I would note that here my win % is a mighty 14% of games..and I play classic 7 player games here...over at VDiplomacy which I recently joined to play one player against one forms of classic Diplomacy such as England V Turkey, or more usually France & Germany versus Russia & Turkey ....out of 25 completed games I've won 20...a pathetic win % of 80 %.

So I regret the inescapable conclusion that it's not me holding back my performance here, but having partners and allies in games ( hint..I may be indulging in ironic self mockery )

I'd like some advice about if it would be good to purchase a Russian Dragon's of Tarkir booster box for about $100 USD? Shipping prices don't matter, as my friend is in Russia at the moment (he is the one actually buying this, and is wondering if he should).

Statistics for ModernDiplomacyII
Is there any statistics about how common is the win by solos. Which nations has the most wins, and who the least wins. And statistics like that.
And also, in general, which variants would you say are the most played, and why?. Any thoughts?.

UK Politics
We have had an elected Head-of_State since forever, we've had a Prime Minister elected with something like 25% of electorate and now he is standing down to be replaced by new PM that no one elected. Home of democracy? I think not.

Ban all Trucks
Without trucks, the terrorist couldn't possibly have carried so many explosives. Trucks are weapons of mass destruction and must be banned. Goodness, at least do background checks on the truckers.

Meaning of "no in-game messaging"
First-time player question: if a game has a "no in-game messaging" setting, does that mean there's no communication between the players at all? Or is there just a specific kind of messaging the players should/should not use?

*Apologies if this is answered somewhere in the rules or another thread; couldn't find it specifically anywhere.
