Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

You should be an actor! Such overconfidence is on par with what we see in politics these days. And actors are making very successful politicians these days. I find it an interesting political situation. If Judea has the forces or the alliances to hold off Ptolemy then fair enough. If it doesn't, em...

Peaceful expansion? Didn't know this concept exists in the game.

Kudos on the roleplay from both sides! I'm almost convinced you guys believe the stuff you say.
I approve your newfound reticence to believe the roleplay. :lol:

Re: Arranging MP Game....Interested ?

No Alexandria was expressly omitted unless you engage. Keep up. Seriously though I've never played Judea so I don't know their ability to hold their own, but this is some terrible diplomacy if Ptolemy has the power to steamroll you. I'd be glad Ptolemy isn't already attacking me if I'm worried about...

Re: What is the result if a player misses a multiplayer game turn?

The hard part seems to be to actually get out of a game. I've had two where I've surrendered twice and haven't submitted a turn in weeks and it still tells me its my turn.

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Great! I've just been on too many forums to know things can escalate quick and a back and forth discussion that goes nowhere can contribute to that. Sorry if I misinterpreted things. Didn't mean to try to censor or anything - was just trying to help keep the discussion civil. All good. It's my bad....

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

You're acting like this has gotten out of hand, but I feel perfectly happy to keep making my point if Macedonia continues to dispute it. Diplomacy is a game of trust and I deal with it as such. Carthage is a loyal ally to the end, even to its own detriment. If Macedonia would rather blatantly disre...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

That was of course after you declared war. Your point being...? 1) treaty is broken and void. 2) Macedon declares war. 3) Epirus shows that they had the same understanding of the treaty by inventing unconvincing excuses. The king is now retiring from this discussion for good. The Carthage is entitl...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

I think this discussion, as fun as it was, has ran its course... Ultimately, the reason for the dispute was that Greece is a great place to expand and there were (and still are) bound to be disputes about it. Lessons were learned and people took note of what happened. So let's move on and remember ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

That was of course after you declared war. Even if Epirus had openly stated they were trying to cheat you I would think it a questionable casus Belli if you had agreed verbally to peace.

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

So then no year for the invasion was detailed and thus misunderstanding was not only possible but probable. The fact you were left 'under the impression' by your mind is so ironclad it is justification for war but the conversation as a whole is so meaningless to you that a verbal agreement to peace...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

The oral negotiations left Macedon under impression that territorial division and attack on Aetolia at the start was in order, meaning that as long as both sides stick to it no hostilities are possible. Since no treaty was officially annonced, we are entitled to our understanding. Funny how Carthag...

Re: Beginning to see the light...

As per the Velvet Underground song, really. After moaning about the culture/decadence mechanism in previous posts, and speculating about how to circumvent it, I have to admit after more hours of game play that's it's just fine as it stands. And, as people have pointed out, it makes the game far mor...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Left them time to expand there army? Was that in turn one or two? And when did your army arrive exactly? What turn did you agree upon for the invasion and show us the communication that made that clear and I will absolutely admit I was wrong. Two turns for someone to turn a non aggression agreement ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Not sure how outcome of an attack can make anything clear, except who is the winner. We are concerned that Lysimachos might be under influence of Carthaginian-Epirean propaganda and would like a public confirmation of Non-Aggressions Pact with 5 years warning between any hostilities. (Can negotiate...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

A decade or two is a bit of an exaggeration. Probably two turns is more accurate. The fact that their incompetence/deception makes the agreement void, particularly when it's not clear which it is, is your opinion, but not one I expect many will hold in high esteem. I would also wonder if you would ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

I feel truly sympathetic to the Macedonians, your losses must have been truly staggering. That Epirus did not attack aetolians immediately is clear. But that doesn't mean they did not have the intention to. Aetolia is likely to sit in its borders and defend. That Macedonia decided to attack immedia...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

If the great nation of Macedonia is complaining that Epirus did not provide support for a war against two tiny Greek nations (with the Antigonids help no less), then Carthage considers this a pretty flimsy excuse for what appears to be wanton aggression. At best the whole cassus belli is based on a...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

And then you left us alone to fight Aeatolian menace, so that you can profit from blood spilled by Macedonian warriors. Antigonos is our ally in fight with with Athenian-Aeatolian covenant, and their armies are already at the gate of Athens, their fleet blockading their ports, despite being so far ...
