Any good games going?

Hey y'all,

Almost done with school for the semester- any good games going? Haven't loved the random games lately so wondering if anyone is prepping a good forum game with players who won't NMR

Glad y'all were able to fill this game- I would join but work is getting busy and I worried I wouldn't have the time

Re: I am the G.O.A.T. of press - Any worthy challangers?

I'm also awful as England- all the advice says go for France first, but that doesn't work with me wanting to send press to everyone and see who clicks.

England just doesn't have enough neighbors and options for me

Re: I am the G.O.A.T. of press - Any worthy challangers?

I can't find the old press bc we canceled the game :-( but! France implied he asked you for WT so thought Gandalf did that first. And you just were too flightly. I was DTF (Down to overthrow France), and you were constantly saying you had to talk to France more, and never really sent me press back. ...

Heh, I kew it!

For the record, Ginge was wrong to identify me as Russia in that game (now cancelled).

I was Germany, actually!

There is literally nothing happening this retreat phase, so I'd say that it doesn't matter. But we can still scream 'off with her head!' anyway, so the choice is yours.
Probably for the best not to risk it

Re: National Cup (not actually a national cup) Peanut Gallery

I wonder... Would posting things to this thread during retreat/builds count as circumventing the rulebook press setting? Like if it was the kinda thing I would post to global chat. Obviously posting to a certain power would be cheating but curious about jokes and chat expected to be seen by everyone...

Re: Gender information for academic purposes

It is pretty male heavy, which makes sense! A game about gossiping behind someone's back while pretending to be friends is classic male behavior. Women just don't get much experience with that (I'm an outlier I know) returning players realize this is a rewritten joke I used last year during the femi...

Re: I am the G.O.A.T. of press - Any worthy challangers?

While there's a ton of ideas that could be implemented to make GR work better, Everytime we've had discussions about them nothing has happened. (I forget, is it even possible to change or is all that code tied up with something we can't access?) And while normally I always cry over the lack of press...

Re: National Cup (not actually a national cup) Peanut Gallery

Coward! In a real World Cup game, a sandgoose outs you early on and you have have to struggle on anyway in bitter determination for more than 100 years. You think I'm joking? That really happened. Emotionally I'm going through a 100 year game just reading this thread. I'm becoming a real world cup ...

Re: Gender information for academic purposes

Well, the reason the survey is here is to see if it accurately reflects the gender balance of the website. We can assume it accurately reflects the gender bias of messages received in random games. The bias is that the model that exists to send diplomacy messages will default to he/him for all playe...

https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=688729 Hopefully we players of the game will also use this thread to post our thoughts after the dust settles and the game is over. Also- there isn't a sub-forum of EOG/Spectating threads? If there is a better one Mods can move it, but off-topic clearly isn'...

Re: I am the G.O.A.T. of press - Any worthy challangers?

Please post a link for the spectators :-D I'll post it to a new thread I think- if we three games going at once posts will get way too confusing.
