Modern Diplomacy II, Draw-Size Scoring
1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
20 Aug 19 UTC It's not a huge site
20 Aug 19 UTC True. But I mean idk what to say I've made games where nobody joined so then I changed the settings to what I thought people would join, so I assumed people wanted to play this setting
20 Aug 19 UTC I just hope Russia doesn't waltz to a solo because of people quitting. Honestly... you joined a game at 10:55 EST and quit two hours later. Did you think a 10-player game was going to end in 2 hours?
20 Aug 19 UTC Could we make the game turns happen daily? I feel like we're all tired, and we'd have less dropouts. A more "authentic" experience if you will.
20 Aug 19 UTC Well Russia, if you're from Alaska then I can't blame you on the settings. They make sense for Alaska. But 99.99% of the site's players are in very different time zones than you.
20 Aug 19 UTC Naw.
20 Aug 19 UTC Yes, Daily is the obvious choice here.
20 Aug 19 UTC I'm down for that but wouldn't someone need to make a new game?
20 Aug 19 UTC Turkey if you're voting no because you think you'll stand a better chance with people quitting, think again. Russia and I will eliminate you in about 30mins.
20 Aug 19 UTC Do you have that option as a mod?
20 Aug 19 UTC No Russia, a mod can edit the game time. I've seen it done before.
20 Aug 19 UTC I know he can edit games, but is turn length part of that?
20 Aug 19 UTC GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
20 Aug 19 UTC Ok, this is epic.
20 Aug 19 UTC 'K Chief I'm aware I'm going to die. I'm throwing my centers, 'member? I just don't want to spend the next week or two sending in orders for a lost game. Additionally, I kinda agree with Ukraine. Didn't we agree to a game at 10:55 PM with the existing settings?
20 Aug 19 UTC Hold up, did Russia just disappear?
20 Aug 19 UTC dammit Russia left it seems lol
20 Aug 19 UTC Jesus
20 Aug 19 UTC That's a good point, but I'd rather bend the rules slightly if it means more people can play.
20 Aug 19 UTC Oof
20 Aug 19 UTC Was russia the mod?
20 Aug 19 UTC Hm, fair enough.
20 Aug 19 UTC I created the game but I'm not a mod
20 Aug 19 UTC or at least I can't find where to edit it
20 Aug 19 UTC I thought one of us was a mod.
20 Aug 19 UTC Nice
20 Aug 19 UTC Just curious, what made you draw?
20 Aug 19 UTC Alright if someone wants to create another game or whatever I'm fine with that.
20 Aug 19 UTC Turkey you're a piece of shit player. This isn't the first time I've seen you throw games or otherwise ruin them out of spite. You're so lucky this went the way it did. Some people actually want to play the game the way it's intended and you've accomplished nothing other than wasting two hours of people's lives. Way to go champ.
20 Aug 19 UTC oh, gg gamers. I'll just consider myself the honorary winner, since I had the most points.
20 Aug 19 UTC The fact that you're proud of throwing games is so damn pathetic.
20 Aug 19 UTC If not I'll try and create something different for the weekend
20 Aug 19 UTC Yikes, I didn't know that the lands of Egypt were so rich with salt.
20 Aug 19 UTC Tbf I won money so I don't mind. I shouldn't have made it so late at night. I'll try and make another one anonymously with different settings
20 Aug 19 UTC At first glance the excused missed turn makes sense with it being live, but god that makes these things take forever
20 Aug 19 UTC Well, I'm not particularly proud. I'm not un-proud, either. I just don't wrap up my ego with online Diplomacy.
20 Aug 19 UTC Ok so if I make a new one what settings should I make? Hide vote draws, no excused turns?
20 Aug 19 UTC SoS?
20 Aug 19 UTC Out of curiosity, though, do you think you would've done differently?
20 Aug 19 UTC Well, if I were making a new one, I probably wouldn't plan it so far in advance, Ukraine. It makes it easier to gather a lot of players, but seems to increase the risk of there being an absentee who forgot about the game. I think you could have it set for, hmm, 2-3 days from me?
20 Aug 19 UTC *from now.

And maybe not make it so late, too.
20 Aug 19 UTC I'd probably toss the excused missed turn as well. With 7-minute phases, that eats up a lot of time.
20 Aug 19 UTC damn I fell asleep with my laptop on my chest lol
20 Aug 19 UTC Hahahahaha
20 Aug 19 UTC Hahahahaha
21 Aug 19 UTC lol
21 Aug 19 UTC does anyone want me to make a new game?
21 Aug 19 UTC sure
21 Aug 19 UTC ill make a new one, start time will be 10pm
21 Aug 19 UTC tonight or when?
