Going Away Game for the World Map
I wasn't a huge fan of it, but we should do a going away game for the World Map, similar to the Inaugural Known World 901 game we're running. Same deal, we get a mod to make the game the last one before they officially shut it off.

Bug in attempted Known World move
This game: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=187862
Attempted Daju to Makuran with Al-Qatta'i support. Somehow, the support is showing as cut, even though no unit attacked Al-Qatta'i. Also, the orders page is showing an error. Please help.

Is it just me, or is it dumb that you can retreat into other people's territory?
I know it's the rules of the game and all, but I feel like it would make more sense if you could only retreat into your own territory or neutral territory.

Which is more balanced 1-1?
How are the two 1-1s shaping up in terms of balance? The consensus on AvF seems to be that Austria usually wins. What about IvG? Do we have any stats to suggest which is a more balanced match?

Known World 901 quirk:
I'm currently participating in two ongoing games on the new world map. 15 different empires to start, so I should have a 1/15 odds of drawing any empire. I drew the same empire twice in a row... That should be a 1/225 occurrence if the draws were random, or even less if it weights other empires higher after I've drawn that specific empire (to increase variety, which I believe mods have confirmed happens, at least in Classic). Should I play the lottery, or is this a bug?

A learning experience
I am looking for 6 people with 80%RR or higher to play against me in a "classroom" game of sorts. I'm going to be mentored by an undisclosed mod during the game, and I would like some good competition for this round. Game ID is below.

Interesting idea. That's a big buy-in for a "mentored" game. I'm intrigued, and it makes me think of the old School of War idea, which I haven't seen mentioned in a while.

What would prevent others of us that joined from reaching out to other mods for "mentoring?"

what are you trying to achieve JEccles?
JEccles (509 D)
05 Jan 17 UTC
@Hauta I'm trying to learn the game. I am stuck in the draw phase, and can't quite figure out how to get over the hump to solo. I'm taking the 2nd set of eyes and a perspective from someone that's been through it to try and learn how to "up my game".

@Hamilton Brian it is a high buy in for mentored, but I want to make things interesting :) I'm not opposed to anyone else having a mentor through it, I just know I have one through the "Zultar Christmas Sweepstakes" prize I won lol
Hauta (1598 D (S))

I mean this constructively: @JEccles, your Draw percent looks low. Check out the numbers of some big shots. Draws + Wins exceeds 50% and sometimes gets close to 60%. Indeed, for you, the Survive percent looks alarmingly high -- almost like you are unwittingly contributing to someone else's solo win. If I were you, I'd work on converting some of those Survives into Draws before I worry about converting Draws into Solos.

@CAPT, I didn't think I needed to restate the obvious. ;)
But if anyone is in a game with CAPT_Brad, of course, they should give him hell.

they usually do. i often have three countries attack me at once
JEccles (509 D)
05 Jan 17 UTC
@Hauta, there's not a huge difference between draw and survive percents for me (1%), and a lot of my survives and defeats came when I started back in 2009. It's been the past couple years that I've started drawing a lot, but I haven't figured out that final step to get over the line.
JEccles (509 D)
05 Jan 17 UTC
I understand what you're saying though and agree, there are some cases in the past that I unwittingly helped people solo, but that's been cut down dramatically over the last few years :)

I would suggest this one doesn't start until the other one is cancelled. 5/7 have pressed cancel. Not sure what to do in a case where the majority want to but there are outliers. Mods?
i have selected cancel but also happy to continue with the other one for fun
I see we still need 1 more person OK to invite housemate to play if slot not filled in the next 24 hours? If not no worries. As anonymous don't see issue and we never work together anyway. Will not meta game. Thought I'd ask as game maybe be flagged by mods because we have had private games together.
