Classic Chaos?
I'm trying to start a game of Classic Chaos and have posted already on a new games thread, but I felt that to ever hope of reaching enough players, it needs more publicity. I had some people sign up but they've now left so if there aren't any takers this time, I'll take the hint and give up but please if anyone's interested, I really love to give this variant a try, it looks like such fun.

Games like vDiplomacy, but also TripleA?
I'm looking for a game that has vDiplomacy's simultaneous turns, asynchronous multiplayer, and ideally a light or in-browser UI, BUT also has a much more complex game system (not to say that Diplomacy is bad because it is simple, but rather that I'd like an alternative).

BENCHMARK GB TOURNAMENT
Hi all, I’d like to check if there's some interest for this 20-players Tournament idea.
In case we got a few people less or many people more, I could change within a few days the structure to adapt it to the new number, but the ideal number would be 20. More to follow.

Potential Fix for Convoy Orders
Is there a way to fix convoy orders to where there is a set of blue lines leading from the convoyed armies' location, to each of the convoying fleets, to the end location, rather than a red move order directly to the destination with connecting blue lines from the fleets

Country assignment
I do not know how many of you played on the "diplomacy judges" of old...

But I was wondering if someone might be interested in introducing the semi-random country assignment that they used, and whether it's doable from the point of view of the code.

Online Diplomacy Championship
A lot of you are active on webDip too, so apologies for making you read this twice, but we're trying to get a tournament with players from all around the internet started, and I'd love for any of you that aren't on/don't check webDip (and all of you who are as well) to join. More inside.
ghug (1012 D)
23 Mar 15 UTC
Hey, all!

The internet is home to several excellent diplomacy communities, and sadly, there isn't as much overlap between those communities as there should be. Luckily for all of us, I (with the help of friendly Playdip mod Skidmarks/Tarsier) am about to change that and give you a fun tournament to play in in the process. You'll recognize the format as being similar to the GFDT we've had in the past, but there's going to be an added focus on giving you all the chance to play with the top players from other sites, most of whom you've likely never had the pleasure of facing before.

The rules are as follows:
The tournament will be played in three rounds, with each player playing two games in each round. Games will all be played at webDiplomacy on the original Diplomacy map (Classic), and will be fully anonymous, full press with 36-hour phases and 5-point buy-ins. Games in the same round will start two weeks apart so that players aren't starting two games at once, and care will be taken to mix players from different sites in games so that everyone has a chance to experience unfriendly faces and new playstyles. If a player receives the same country assignment in both games in a round, the second game's country assignments will be shuffled.

A player's score in a game will be his or her final supply center count plus 420/draw size for a draw or 420 for a solo. Rounds will be seeded initially by site ranking and then by previous round's score in rounds after the first. Ties will be broken by seeding. Depending on the number of players, 14 or 27 with the highest scores will advance from the first round to the semifinal round, and then seven will advance from the semifinal round to the final round.

Each player will be allowed one pause per game lasting up to one week without question. Any further pauses must be agreed upon by everyone, and it is recommended that account sitters be found if such a situation arises. Games will also be paused to prevent NMR when possible, but any player who NMRs or is saved from NMRing twice will be replaced.

I'm assuming if the inter-site tournament was hosted by any other site than webDip then webDip banned players could join without issue. Given that, it strikes me as somewhat off that a ban from one of the many sites taking part should prevent someone joining.

It's not as if it would be difficult to allow an account to be created for the duration of the tournament and be deleted afterwards. It wouldn't be difficult either to keep those accounts silenced if you really wanted to. I really don't understand what the problem is.
@jmo - I didn't ask how the play in the tournament. I asked how the play in general. Then I answered. And I used a smiley. So go pound sand, smartass.
Thanks, oct. Maybe one or two of the other banned players would like to take part in the tournament. For me, I was just taking an opportunity to make a light hearted joke and have zero desire to join.

It does appear that this tournament attempts to use a scoring system that discourages players from allowing solos, and significantly punishes those who do. With the bonus pot set at 420 D to the winner or 420 to split among the draw, it effectively does away with the idea of dumping a solo because you can score more points by losing.

Hey, Butterhead
So Texas is seemingly looking hard only at Shaka Smart. Gregg Marshall from Wichita State is seemingly not being looked at in the same way. For all of the hoopla over the Final Four run, do you have any insight as to why Shaka Smart has never won a conference title in either the Colonial or a gutted Atlantic 10?
