Re: Diplomacy

I don't think I just left any important conversations unanswered at any point, but sorry you felt that way. Regardless, not cool to just have stuff purposefully ignored and feel like one is playing a...

Re: Diplomacy

I'd likely play another. I don't have any other games ongoing, and I am itching for a game where things actually go well for me early. I'm on a rough slump.

Re: Diplomacy

I have like no clue what you're talking about. I just reviewed the correspondence log and we were chatting basically every season with multiple messages all throughout the game. The one spot that...

Those Final Years

I have two parts I want to address here, although they kind of link together. But it is the lack of a draw at the end of the game and the lack of communication at the end of the game.

I'm...

Re: Diplomacy

Just getting down my usual rambling post game thoughts here.


1901

I mucked up and wasn't paying attention to the site when the game started, as I'm not active on HSers anymore. That led to...

Re: Diplomacy

Bah, I would not do what Germany did this game :P

I mean largely all the early chatter to me suggested that we were looking at an early England/France arrangement. France even went to BUR...

Re: Diplomacy

Aye, bad blood seems to have been had by all for the past few years which is understandable. We've all largely been wasting our time in what would either be a four way or five way draw that I doubt...

Re: Diplomacy

I tried to sign up, and I know I have in the past, but not getting an email back yet confirming. Guess I will have to try again later.

Re: Diplomacy

Aye apologies. I am not too active on scapers anymore. But I'm in for this diplo game.



I prefer random powers in general, but am sympathetic if some beginner wants an "easier" nation. But I...

Re: Diplomacy

This is largely true. My favorite scoring system for Diplomacy tournaments is C-Diplo which awards 100 points for every game. If there is a solo victor, they get the full 100 points and nobody else...

Re: Diplomacy

I had peaked at the game multiple times and it was hard to say. I likely would have gone for the solo in France's shoes and probably been happy to take the draw in Englands, but it also would have...

I knew that. I just enjoy sharing that story anyhow.

Re: Diplomacy

Perhaps I did something wrong, but I gained a friend playing Diplomacy.

This past summer I attended the World Boardgaming Championships and wound up in a game of Diplomacy. One of the other...

Re: Diplomacy

I said I'd let it be and I'll be doing so. Ultimately the main point is we both agree on one thing: We failed in communication somehow with each other and things deteriorated quickly from there. I'm...

Re: Diplomacy

Fair enough. For what it's worth I certainly told Italy about it pretty much right away during the game.






Sincerest apologies if that is how it came off across. I did not mean it like...

Re: Diplomacy

I agree that in a vacuum all of these things make some sense. Sometimes allies need to bounce. I've certainly argued for it before. And in the case of TRI/VEN there always is need to talk about who...

Re: Diplomacy

Indeed that is a key difference we're still having. Kinseth apparently expects players to be on for last minute diplomacy. I do not--as I say I have real things going on in life such that this game...

Re: Diplomacy

Yeah, that's all fair. I agree Kinseth that whatever I'm saying here I still respect the heck out of you as a player and would be glad to play with you again. I really felt we were going somewhere in...

Re: Diplomacy

Not playing diplomacy for the next game, and not meaning to take it too personal. Obviously you can succeed at this game and you have played well. You manage to find allies. I'm just saying I'm...

Re: Diplomacy

Well this is still the critical point of the game to me, or at least one of them. You still seem to be defending your movement in S1902 and claiming I'm the one being unreasonable. I'm going to make...

Re: Diplomacy

I agree it was an easy decision for you. As largely laid out above by me, I was pretty confident the status quo wasn't going to work for any of us going forward. There was just no way you and I could...

Time for the third and final installment of my thoughts on this game. As I started to get into above, obviously my thinking began to shift between 1904 to the events after that. Basically I really...

Re: Diplomacy

On to the start of 1903, or more accurately Winter 1902 which I basically consider the start of the next years moves. I immediately went to work of aligning myself with Italy. We had long had a good...
