HDV as default
I'm wondering if the mods would consider making HDV the default setting because no HDV is trash.

I'm glad by stating my thread is the important thread, I have made it the important thread.
In all seriousness I don't care for petitions. I just want it to be the default.
Chaqa (4027 D (B))

I don't see how it should be the default. The default settings should mirror a real game of Diplomacy as best they can, and there's no concept of "hidden" draw votes in a real game of Diplomacy.
Durga (3659 D)
30 Jan 17 UTC
Draw votes shouldn't be used as a diplomatic tool. I'm not a f2f player and I don't care what they do. I heard f2f uses SoS but that's not the default.
MajorMitchell (1163 D)

I think hidden draw votes are the single greatest cause of acrimonious fights within games. Thetes just no way HDV should be the default, I half suspect that Demon Overlord is trolling us all with this suggestion.
Durga (3659 D)

Only lesser players who can't convince people to stop solos or threats with words resort to public draw votes to help them.

HDV leads to boringly drawn out endgames when nothing is happening. I'm not a fan.

The Chicago FTF scene uses hidden draw votes. I was under the impression that that was the vanilla setting
Chaqa (4027 D (B))
30 Jan 17 UTC
How does that even work? Who is keeping track?
Valis2501 (2898 D (G))
30 Jan 17 UTC
@Chaqa it's literally used at every FTF scene in America. We also have TD's/Spectators who perform the draw process.

Everyone gets a black-suited playing card and a red-suited playing card. Each player puts one card on the board. Red is to Draw. Black is to Play On. The TD checks the results, takes all the other cards back, and then announces the result.
Valis2501 (2898 D (G))
30 Jan 17 UTC
Where the result is "Pass/Didn't Pass", without revealing how many or who voted what
Chaqa (4027 D (B))
30 Jan 17 UTC
Wouldn't the other players just see the card?

I've never played F2F at an event. We always just adjudicate ourselves and if someone thinks it was done wrong we solve it the good old fashioned way

What is the rationale for hdv?
Valis2501 (2898 D (G))
30 Jan 17 UTC
Chose a card and they put it face down
Chaqa (4027 D (B))
30 Jan 17 UTC
Oh, makes more sense.

I still don't see why you'd use hidden draw votes.

Because it allows players to bluff about their position on draws? The same way people can't blindly trust someone is ordering like they say they are they can't blindly trust someone is drawing like they say they are.

Last turn of a certain dead player can capture province?
Consider Autumn turn. A player has a single original supply center. His last unit is somewhere else.
His last supply center is captured. He will be dead when Fall begins. However, he is in a position where he can capture one of my many supply centers. Will I lose that supply center in the Fall if he moves to that providence?
