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.

Does Empire4 (Fall of the American Empire) need to be balanced?
Unless most other Diplomacy maps, Empire4 is not very balanced and a few nations have severe disadvantages that make it very difficult for them to win while others are fairly overpowered. I can explain more if someone wants to ask.

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.

Right, it looks like the best way to form the teams would be to do North America v Rest of the World. So NAFTA v ROTW. And this is how the tournament would work, broadly speaking:

1) 2 teams, Team NAFTA and Team ROTW

2) 12 players per team;

3) each team nominates a captain;

4) the two captains select the 12 players, which will include themselves;

5) the 2 teams are split in 2 sub teams of 6 players each based on their 1v1 GR at the end of September 17; these teams will be called NAFTA-1 and NAFTA-2 and ROTW-1 and ROTW-2 respectively; therefore the strongest 6 players will form NAFTA-1 and ROTW-1;

6) the 6 player teams will be further split into 2 sub teams based on their country preference (to be decided by the respective captains), ie NAFTA-1A; NAFTA-1F; NAFTA-2A; NAFTA-2F and the same for ROTW;

7) NAFTA-1 will play 6 matches (2 games each, 1 France and 1 Austria) against ROTW-1. The pairing will be random. NAFTA-2 will play ROTW-2 the same way. These games will be 24h;

8) After the completion of the above 12 'Singles' there will be 6 further matches - the 'Doubles'. NAFTA-1A will play together with NAFTA-2F 3 matches against ROTW-1A and ROTW-2F whereby the 'A' players will play a single game with austria and their team mates 'F' will play France in the same match; these games will also be 24h;

9) finally, in parallel with the first 12 'Singles' a single 'Team' match will be played - the 'F' players will play together a single game playing France and their 'A' team mates will play a single game playing Austria. A captain for each subteam will be nominated and that would be the person to enter the orders (for the purpose a new profile can be created so not to affect the GR). Given the comms within a team required to agree a set of orders this single game will be on 48h.

10) the total number of matches played will therefore be 19. Each win scores a point, a draw 1/2 and a loss 0, with the exception of the 'Team' match which will score double, ie 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss.

11) the total number of points available will therefore be 20. The team that scores 10.5 points or more is the winner.

12) timescales wise the 12 'Singles' and the 'Team' match will start at the same time but the former will end much sooner. The 6 doubles will commence 2 weeks after so that most of the singles will be over by then. Chances are the 'Team' game will end more or less at the same time as the doubles.

So 7-9. You want to play 12 matches but you don't want the strongest from a team to play against the weakest from the other. So the strongest 6 In a team play the strongest in the other team and so for the weakest. These are the 12 singles.

Then, among the 12 players Six will play a further game (a single game, not a pair) playing France and the other 6 Austria. Therefore you wil have 6 'doubles' where 2 players from the same team will play a match together, one playing France and the other Austria.

Finally the 6 players in a team who played France in the doubles will play a single game in collaboration playing France. Same for the other 6 playing Austria.

Note that the 6 players selected to play France will have to be 3 from the 6 strongest GR (NAFTA 1 Or ROTW 1) and 3 from the 6 weakest.

DJ, there are several discrepancies between what you're saying and what meme has been telling me.
Right, the singles I understand now. The doubles and team match are confusing. The teams play.....themselves? NAFTA vs NAFTA? And there are two team matches?
xorxes (30127 D)
28 Sep 17 UTC
In the team match , the 6 Frances from Nafta play the 6 Austrias from ROTW in one game, and viceversa.in the other game.

In the doubles, if you are a strong Austria you pair up with a weak France from your team, and you play as Austria against a France from the other team and your partner plays as France against the Austria partner of your France.

Each match always consists of two games. In one of the games NAFTA plays as Austria and ROTW as France, and viceversa for the seconf game.

In the singles, one person plays as Austria game and their teammate plays asFrance.

In the teram match, six people play together as Austria in one game, and the other six play together as France in the other game.

So each person will play three games by themselves, and one game as part of a team.

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)
