Ethics of Diplomacy
So in general, I suppose most people here would say you can, and, possibly, should do anything within the rules to increase their chance at winning.

How about, for example, pretending to be terminal, though? Is that still fine?

Best Of?
I've been getting into the game a lot more recently and was wondering if there was any sort of listing of great or best games of Diplomacy. Games with great strategy, alliances, backstabs, drama, that kind of stuff.

In lue of that post your favorite or best games here. I'm up for reading some good stories.

Drinking healthy
I'm quite a balanced eater, so it's not exactly vital, but apart from water, it seems like almost every drink is unhealthy for your body or teeth in some way. Of course, I could just make sure I vary enough, and I do, but I still think it's good to know what's actually healthy rather than "not that bad".

I absolutely don't have to worry about too much calories, btw. I'm talking about the other stuff.

Does this game have to be cancelled?
Hi. I'm currently in this game in which we had 3 people get banned. There haven't been any moves made yet and it is still in spring 1901. So if we were able to fill the positions, 1 of which has been filled already, would we be allowed to continue? Here's a link to the game.

Need a replacement Texas in Full Press Anon WTA, low stakes game.
Texas was banned, and without a replacement it's going to be a very one-sided game.

The Favorite Author Tournament: The Round of 32
And here we go, into Round 2, with Shakespeare being out due to his losing again...because he's the master of tragedy, of course! ;) Will there be literary superstars? Yes! Will there be a glut of sci fi and fantasy writers? Yes! Will Thucy continue push a #ThoreauLaozi2016 platform (Change We Can Believe In...except change is just a natural process and you must learn to accept it like the good little Transcendentalist that you are!) YES! ;) 32 authors, 1 goal...whatever that is.

The Last Man in Europe...Or, Rather, China
http://news.yahoo.com/25-years-tiananmen-barely-known-china-youth-064659528.html That's honestly very depressing...It was 1989...but its treatment is not too far from "1984." And THIS is why I have such a hard time sympathizing with those shouting "Wake the Fuck Up," as if disagreement over America's future was the equivalent to being asleep at the wheel. Neither Bush nor Obama were the tyrants the Michael Moores and Glenn Becks call them out to be...THIS is The Party incarnate...

Concerning the Frequency of Opening Moves
A while back, I received raw data from Jonathan Jonsson (someone from this site) and I put it together in an XL spreadsheet and have done various statistics related to that data. Below are the frequencies for the various opening moves by country/by move.
Tru Ninja (1016 D (S))

Allow me time to post each country’s information. Here’s some info on how to read the posts:
Entries are as follows:
Opening move…….games (pct)….wins (pct)…draws (pct)…survivals (pct)…eliminations (pct)
The games is the number of occurrences within the roughly 4,000 games for the data I received. The percentage is the percentage of times it was played (this pct is reasonable for any number of games). Wins, draws, survivals and eliminations are the number of times that opening won, drew, survived and was eliminated within the total times it was used. These percentages reflect the percent of wins among games that used that opening (draws, survivals, eliminations, etc).
Q: Why aren’t all the openings represented?
A: I used only those openings that had at least 30 appearances. If an opening was used less than 30 times, I discarded it.

Q: Why are the total number of games used by each country different?
A: Having discarded openings for a country that were used less than 30 times, it might be that, out of the course of some 4,000+ games, one country has 6-7 random crap openings that were not used while others have only 1 or 2. If a game displayed one of these openings, I did not discard that game, but I rather did not tally that rare opening for that one country but tallied the other openings for the other 6. Therefore, there will be fluxuation among the totals.

Q: This is great stuff Tru, where can I get more?
A: Email me. My stuff is free and in PDF form.

Q: Ugh, Tru, I’m tired of seeing you post this crap. Will you shut up?
A: Nope. Ignore the thread.

Turkey's Other openings collectively have the highest winrate and the lowest elimination rate. Someone clearly knows something we don't know.

Also Tru Ninja, Balkan Gambit - Bohemia Aberration's Elims percentage is incorrect.

I'll try to upload this stuff somewhere today, change the Balkan gambit elim pct (thx strat).

Vaft is the guy I got the raw data from. One word of note on his program: while it's handy, it does contain games with CDs.

His site does contain the moves and so will the file I will upload. I will try to combine the following into one document:
--the information above
--where each country gets its solos from (solo radar)
--year of victory histogram by country
--messages per game and W/L correlation
--country cooperations (when one wins, who loses and when one draws, who also draws)
--fleet to army comparisons by country
--opening move strength and avg center gain per opening
--misc stuff

It has always amazed me that people went to the trouble of making names for all these openings. I think the most I've ever known are 3.
Tru Ninja (1016 D (S))
29 May 14 UTC
I agree. I like naming the most common openings simply as a time-saver, but to name rarely used ones is a bit ridiculous.

Not to my knowledge.

This is magnificent. I hope eventually there's such sufficient data for the variants. Also there's no easy way to figure out overall country winrate in standard and gunboat games the way this data is organized.
Tru Ninja (1016 D (S))
02 Jun 14 UTC
I have the statistics for the classic version. Not sure if you downloaded the file from google docs or not, but there's a lot there. I don't really do stats on gunboat or variants, though.

Lil' bit of French
I want to know how to say this in French:
"(I would like to reserve the spot) in the period from 16 July to 6 August."
That might not even be a proper English sentence, but you probably get what I mean. I just need to make clear in which period, and I don't know how.
Monday morning I'm handing in a letter in which I need that sentence, so there's no rush.

Builds in non-core supply centers
Is it possible to make it so that, on maps like World War 1 (classical), you can build in non-home supply centers, as you can on the Modern Europe map? If so, how?
