The map is fine, you'll have my email with country prefetrence in a minute :sorcerer:

 

 

 

But I just thought of two things:

 

 

-Arent the brits at an advantage because any invasion will have to be by sea?

 

 

-Arent the Russians at an advantage because marching against Moscow = extreme badness?


DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

 

"I suppose outright stupidity and complete lack of taste could also be considered points of view. "

Indeed, the main advantage of England is that it is both an island and a corner power, and Russia has the advantage of four units (winter conditions are not replicated in game, so marching on Moscow isn't as hard as it might be) but other countries have other advantages. The game is pretty well balanced. :)

 

Oh, and message recieved. That's 3/7 lists recieved.

Indeed. I'm just waiting for two more lists now, after which I'll send out an email with the addresses of players, what countries they are playing, and the date of the deadline for submitting moves. Then it's up to you all to email each other to plan strategies, discuss alliances, spread rumors and so on. I'll also post the same information on this thread.

Maybe :D

 

 

I was just thinking, how do you decide who wins a battle? Is there some kind of rule system or is it just the flip of a coin?

 

 

..and whoever's got Sevastopol is in trouble, its just one of those places you HAVE to take in order to keep to good form :huh: Like Poland.

Someone needs to read the rules a bit closer! :)

 

Every unit in the game has the same strength.

If a unit moves into an occupied province, it's strength (1) matches the strength of the defender (1) and so the move fails, as follows (underlined moves fail):

 

France: A Paris-Burgundy

Germany: A Burgundy Holds

 

In this example, the German army stays in Burgundy.

 

 

When two attacks of equal strenth are made on a province, both attacks fail, any unit in the province stays there, otherwise the province remains vacant:

 

A Spain-Marseilles

A Burgundy- Marseilles

 

In this instance, if Marseilles was vacant, it would remain vacant, with the result that it would be possible for France to build in that vacant Home Centre in Winter Adjustments. As such, France might use the above moves to prevent any movement by another power into the province, while keeping it vacant for builds.

 

 

In order for an attack to suceed, it must be supported by another unit. The unit providing support must be in a province from which it could make an attack into the province it is supporting an attack into (i.e. An army in belgium can support an attack into Ruhr, because it could itself attack Ruhr. A fleet in belgium could not, as Ruhr is an inland province, and so the fleet in Belgium could not attack Ruhr):

 

France: A Paris-Burgundy

A Marseilles S A Paris-Burgundy

Germany: A Burgundy Holds

 

In this example, The German army in Burgundy is dislodged, the French army in paris moves into Burgundy, and the Army in Marseilles remains in Marseilles.

 

 

If the army giving support is itself attacked, its support will be cut:

 

France: A Paris-Burgundy

A Marseilles S A Paris-Burgundy

Germany: A Burgundy Holds

A Piedmont-Marseilles

 

Note that though the army in Piedmont's move to Mareilles failed, the fact that it attempted the move was sufficient to cut the support.

 

 

Support can be given to a foreign power as follows:

 

France: A Paris-Burgundy

England A Marseilles S French A Paris-Burgundy

Germany: A Burgundy Holds

 

 

Support can be given in defence:

 

France: A Paris-Burgundy

A Marseilles S A Paris-Burgundy

Germany: A Burgundy Holds

A Ruhr S A Burgundy

 

In this case, the Strength of the defender has been increased to two, equalling the strength of the attack, so the attack fails. If the French attack had been supported by a third army, its strength of three would have exceeded the two and been successful.

 

 

Remember that a defensive suppot order does not count towards attack strength, nor visa versa. For example, if in the example we have been using, A Paris had been attacked from another province, A Marseilles support of A Paris into Burgundy would not count towards A Paris' strength in an attack on it.

 

For more information on Support, see pages 7 to 12 of your rulebook.

 

 

Just waiting on EnderWiggin's list, now.

I did, it was just a lot of "dont cheat" and "DO NOT cheat" stuff ;)

 

 

 

besides which of the different rulesets here are we using? http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/diplomacy_rules.htm

Awesome!

 

Can we mister Reveilled,can we?

 

EDIT:It costs money..damn....I'm broke :)

Now I'm not suggesting anything but the 'full version' is free to d/l as it's time-limited, not feature limited. Now after your hour is up you have to upgrade to the full version. Upgrading basically "patches" your executable file. Now say we're to buy the actual CD, but get tired of inserting the damn disc...we could visit www.gamecopyworld.com and rid ourselves of the hassle, by using a "patched" executable for our legitimately bought software.

Erm...I think it's best if we just play the old fashioned legal way, at least for our first game. ;)

 

Besides, once I recieve Ender's list, we'll be ready to start the game, so no sense in waiting for everyone to download that. Can we stick to the original idea? Please? :)
