Re: Diplomacy

So I got an email today saying my orders are due on the 16th? I know press was temporarily disabled but did we make sure to extend the actual order deadline as well?

Re: Diplomacy

Yeah I am fine with waiting but I am really excited to see what nation I will be playing as soon as possible. I want to mentally prepare myself now. XP

Re: Diplomacy

Aye; I still have that bag of dicks you gave me sitting in my closet for safe keeping. ;)

I am cool with random selection, though I do hope I get a nation I have not played previously, (England or...

What else do we need before the game starts?

Re: Diplomacy

Never did get an actual game set up, no.

I will say that I would sometimes set up my game board to reflect the online game I was playing to help me visualize tactics, but I actually feel like the...

Re: Diplomacy

Were we ever getting around to another game of this or is everyone still too terrified of kevindola and me to jump in again? ;)

Re: Diplomacy

Curious to see if anyone else is going to make an EOG statement. Very interested in hearing other players' perspectives of what went down, and the plans on their end.

Re: Diplomacy

Glad you can confirm that France and I were both playing to win here. :thumbsup:


My baseball analogy may have been wonky here. In any case though, I play for the best outcome possible that...

Re: Diplomacy

Haha well as long as the validity of the 2 way draw isn't called into question then I am fine. Just didn't know if I was seen as being undeserving of the final result, but glad that we got that...

Re: Diplomacy

If I am planning an immediate stab of France, then I lose nothing by going with that maneuver. With me still supporting SER from RUM, I have no risk of losing any of those crucial BUD, VIE, or SER...

Re: Diplomacy

I don't know what the former statement is alluding to.


And I am fine with the game result speaking for itself if you'd prefer. I just don't like the legitimacy of the outcome being called into...

Re: Diplomacy

It obviously succeeds without my support on its own. What I am saying is that if I decided to try for the solo, that Albanian army would not be defending Trieste, and I would end up winning the game...

Re: Diplomacy

So I can't tell if you're being willfully obtuse here or not? Let me explain.


First of all, by bloodthirst I don't mean people being upset at him. Obviously it is just a game, and I'm not going...

Re: Conclusion

Think of it as a solo Diplomacy win = home run. It is the big splash play, huge accomplishment, super satisfying and definite run. Obviously better than simply getting on base.


But in the end,...

Re: Diplomacy

Eh, if France suspected that I wanted to push for a solo, then wouldn't that have been the optimal move for me to make there, followed by creating a slew of fleets in England, (which I was preparing...

Re: Conclusion

Indeed, I would be very interested in winning a solo in Diplomacy at some point, as I imagine it gives a fantastic feeling of accomplishment. That being said, it is all dependent on the context of...

Cool story. Without the Albanian support of Trieste, He also risks me stabbing him from Budapest to Trieste with support from Vienna and Serbia in this timeline, which is an auto-win for me....

Re: Diplomacy

Thing is, even in a slightly better iteration France isn't able to get fleets into Black Sea, Armenia, and east Bulgaria to take one of SEV or RUM until 1913. By that time, I have fleets swarming all...

EOG Statement Part 5

1909


The Spring begins boringly enough, with me having little to do but occupy the Armenian army in Turkey while Austria and France move in from the west. Apparently France sold Austria some BS...

On the surface, not a particularly interesting year, but behind the scenes there was a surprising amount going on. It was the formal beginning of the Austria/France/England "alliance", and...

EOG Statement Part 3

1904

The stab heard round the world. Or stabs, as it seemed to everyone else.

I forgot to mention in my 1903 write-up, that France and I had grown increasingly concerned that Russia and Turkey...

EOG Statement Part 2

I want to foremost make one point very clear: While France and I shared victory in the game equally, kevindola was doubtlessly the team MVP of this war. After I backstabbed Russia, I did...
