That's proper devotion! I also brought my laptop 2 weeks ago when I was still playing. Wife also wasn't terribly happy but I managed to coinvince her not to ask for divorce for now.
The greatest game of diplomacy of all.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

I think for me the main thing in a diplomacy game is to have all countries have as many points of contention/contact with other players as possible, so no one feels like they're sitting out the game, and we don't waste player slots on countries that will largely be spectators. Arvernii seems to hav...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

Btw shouldn't we have an Arverni too? Their starting army of 6 heavies, 6 medium and 6 skirmishers is considerable enough for quick conquests and if given some time, can become a powerhouse too. They are not worse choice than Arabia or Iberii for example. Arvernii can be more involved than the Iber...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

Hi All I would like to join, as it will be my first MP better to stick with a minor: Just fell free to give me the most useful for game balance. Thanks I'm kind of interested in seeing someone play Skythia or Sarmatia. Particularly if there's a dacia already. Some early consolidation early can make...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

At this point, I think we need a minimum of 2-3 more players. - We need people to take on the Antigonids and the Seleucids. - We need at least one person to compete with Macedon for control of Hellas. Epirus, Athens, or Sparta. Then we should do a look over to see if the geopolitical balance is whe...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

Maybe there's a bit of that... I also forgot to mention that I will fully support Nubia's expansion eastwards and into the Arabian peninsula. This will yield them many natural resources not seen in our African continent and spur trade among our people. Eastward, westward, the impossible southward, ...

Having followed this closely, I truly hope there is a two state solution.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

I'll be up for playing a minor as I might be away for a bit, stick me down as Epirus, Sparta or Nubia Whatever you think will be needed "Being away for a bit" as Epirus or Sparta is likely to mean you come back to find you have no nation given Greece tends to be such a snakepit ! Nubia is more sust...

Nubia might be slightly more sustainable, but is a bit of a Maurya, only really a problem for one player. Sinc...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: A New World Order

I kind of want to play Carthage again, so I'll put down for that, but if someone else from the previous game wants it I'm happy to choose another nation.

As for potentials I'd say Dacia and Syracuse are the most likely to be interesting, even if the latter is short-lived.

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

As I was saying, I am fine with how game played out. What I was complaining here is what metagame turned to in several last days. Was just saying that if people are unhappy (from their ingame standpoint) how I did or think that I acted irrational as a player they should have done something about it...

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

I'm going to set up a new thread for the next game. It will have no set start date yet, so as best to accommodate those of us who are traveling in the near future (without internet). All discussion of the next game should happen there, and this thread can be left with just discussion of the current...

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

I think games are more fun when all players use the same conditions as winning. No alliance should be forever. Remember that I explicitly and publicly gave Geffalrus promise of 10 turn warning before any hostilities, implying that it will end eventually, and that was when our alliance was very impo...

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

I like to see Carthage as kind of like England. It's fairly removed, has a strong navy that most enemies will have to get past and quite rich but not super strong militarily. Like England, it doesn't benefit me when any individual power or alliance gets too strong, or too close to me. It puts my nic...

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

I can see the option. And it's possible. Rome was trying to reach out, because frankly the conversation between us made me think you were unlikely to accept a communication like that. Also the antigonids there is no contradiction. They didn't need your trust because they knew that it was to your ben...

If you don't consider what you were saying and the way you were saying it as insulting, unhelpful and unnecessary, that's up to you.

Ok, now you're just being a schmuck. [...] Ok, let's count personal insults: ledo: 1 pnoff: 0 -) on winning Let me be clear about something: I did not win. I would say I got 3rd place, which is fine, I guess, but I play(ed) to be first. And my strategy was depending on others playing to be first, o...

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

OMG we are DEFINITELY lowering the difficulty. Christ on a cracker, the AI boost and the decadence problems are just the absolute worst. And it's just depressing to see the bottom tier of the CDR list packed with all those player indicators. Culture and decadence need to be factors, of course.........
