Why is this variant in the variants list if it is not an option when creating a game. It should either be removed from the variants list or be added as an option when creating a game.

@Tom, your moves scare me sir. I really think us working together is the best play right now
Tom Bombadil (4028 D (G))
15 Sep 17 UTC
I've only got my sights on Belgium. Surely you can udnerstand that if we are to work together, I'd like it to be a bit closer in SC count. With You picking up Norway and potentially St. Pet or Edi, you would be at 9 centers to my five. I'd rather have a closer split
Dan-i-Am 88 (358 D)
15 Sep 17 UTC
I completely understand That, I just hope you are telling the truth. The move to Ruhr seemed a bit excessive, as I'm sure you can understand my concern there.
Dan-i-Am 88 (358 D)
15 Sep 17 UTC
So what are your plans for this turn, Ruhr to Belgium and convoying an army to the British mainland? It seems you won't need two fleets up north after this turn
Dan-i-Am 88 (358 D)
16 Sep 17 UTC
Mistake of the game goes to me for misordering Skaggerack. Also, whoever gets the best of the west, I will be making no efforts to set up the stalemate line, so do your best!

Well, gotta say the grand prize goes to Germany and France for having England CD. Fucking brilliant. We of course should cancel or draw but won't

Cutie usual excuses. Can't wait to find out what fucker England is
Ogion (4059 D)
16 Sep 17 UTC
Tom, you should of course kill Germany if you had any sense. Should have when you still had an ally in the north.
Tom Bombadil (4028 D (G))
16 Sep 17 UTC
At what point did I have an ally in the north? But no, I don't want to destroy GER. I think he and I can work well together.
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)

You and I have always been allies.
Ogion (4059 D)

Until he has twice as many hints now that I can pressure him anymore. You're toast Tom. You just don't know it yet.

But hey, at least you have a CD next door, right? Why didn't we put a RR on this game?
Dan-i-Am 88 (358 D)
16 Sep 17 UTC
Tom you say that, but you still made a play at one of my home centers that turn. And that came after I disbanded Picardy, moved away from you, and said multiple times on here I want to work with you. So any time that working together can begin, that'd be great

Since Turkey isn't listening, I have to ask, Italy, what your plan is. You'll have to deal with France and or Germany at some point, and I suspectyou might want a friend at that point.

The best thing about Canceling our game is that no one will ever know the true identities of the players. Jolly good!

Germany? You're kind of an idiot. Italy is exploding, and France is going to eat you alive in and instant and you decide the right guys to attack is... Russia

You need my help buddy, or someone is going to solo and it sure ain't you.
Dan-i-Am 88 (358 D)
26 Sep 17 UTC
Kind of an idiot? Either I'm an idiot or I'm not, and it can definitely go either way!

France can't run through me that easily. He should be building fleets here and setting up a stalemate in the Mediterranean, otherwise Italy is going to run away with this. Russia (I think that is you). Won't be able to do jack about Italy in the south. It's o my a matter of time before he runs through You, and I'm trying to slow that progress down. Admittedly, attacking Italy was probably the right move, but I've already committed to this.

Ogion (4059 D)
26 Sep 17 UTC
Here the problem, Attacking me speeds Italy up when I have to withdraw from turkey to face your attack. If you want to prevent an Italian solo you need to call off your attack. I I'll be placing any disbands on the Italian front to speed up his attack.
Ogion (4059 D)

Wyatts. This thread is about a particular game. I'd advtise in your own thrwad
Tom Bombadil (4028 D (G))
26 Sep 17 UTC
Seems pretty straightfowardly not in your favor Ogion.

I am needed to stop Italy, and with two builds, creating the Iberian stalemate will be easy. You are not needed to stop Italy - he can take all of your centers and not be at 18. Germany can easily stalemate you in St. Pet and Munich/Berlin.

And RUS is not in a position to even be able to threaten to throw if he wanted because his units are tied up in Turkey.

Seems like an easy coast job to a 3-way draw for myself, GER and ITA.
Manwe Sulimo (630 D)
26 Sep 17 UTC
Yeah, I'm good with a 3-way draw since this is just an I ranked game. Otherwise, I'd try for the solo :p
Tom Bombadil (4028 D (G))
26 Sep 17 UTC
Eh. Unless I go off the rails, or GER does something stupid, I don't think there is an avenue for you to solo anyway.

Rival/hatred game variant
I'd like to play a game mode where each player is secretly given a unique rival (so no two players share a rival), and the only players counted at the end of the draw are those who have both survived and eliminated their rival. A solo doesn't need to eliminate their rival and rivals aren't necessarily symmetrical.

Unknown Player in Anonymous Private Game
I'm completely new to Diplomacy and this website. I made a private game and explained to my friends how to join my private match. Though only 2 people say they've joined, I have 3 anonymous players other than myself registered. Is it possible one of them joined twice? I know by the time stamps that it was one of the first two players who joined the game, the times are only a minute apart, and I am wondering if the small time frame is just a player joining twice.

[Suggestion] Alternate winning conditions
vDiplomacy has a way to set up "alternate winning conditions", e.g. to customize how many turns are played and/or how many SCs need to be conquered before a winner is declared. For example, we can have a game of Classic running for 14 turns (Fall 1907).

FFS WHY?
Why does online Diplomacy give me Germany to start with in every single game I sign up for?
Seriously, does it use region-based IP-checking? Because I'd really like to try out different countries and strategies.
And no, taking over Leavers doesn't count because you always get a losing position way past the point of getting a proper strategy rolled out (that's why the original player threw the game)
