The Online Diplomacy Championship 2017
Some of you may have participated in ODC 2015, the tournament run on webDiplomacy in which players from all sites competed for the title of Online Diplomacy Champion. It was won by webDiplomacy player Octavious.

The time has come around again, and this time it is being held on PlayDiplomacy. You can find all the information you need here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=797

To qualify to represent vDiplomacy, you need to be in the top 100 of the vDip Hall of Fame: http://vdiplomacy.com/hof.php - in other words, the vPoints cutoff is 1510. If you don't meet this, you could always sign up to represent webDiplomacy if you have a webDip GR of >163.

If you want to sign up, message me first, and I'll shoot a message to the Tournament Director showing that you qualify. Good luck - hopefully a vDip player can win the title this year!

That sounds like a blast, but I think I would embarrass the vDip site with my poor Classic map play. :)

Good luck.

Cremoso doesn't qualify anyway.
So now I have a goal for next time around...
Remember you can only participate IF you're in the Top 100 Hall of Fame AND you have an amusingly pronounced handle.
Seriously, this is the same tourney that Carebear has posted about in the forum, isn't it?

I actually didn't see that thread...

I think Online Diplomacy Championship is a far better way to advertise it than 'Cross-Site Tournament' though, so this is by far the better thread :)
I know Amby. Like I said, something to target for next year. I only have like 85 people I need to bump down. :-)

The quickest way to the top is by playing and making the draw in WWIV games. The bigger the map, the higher the number of points you get for draw/win.

There. I said it. That's my secret.

It's hard to get in those draws...

...and by playing unranked games once you get there, while avoiding games with lower-ranked players. (don't hit me Mapupu, I know you play WWIV with anyone who joins!)

Hello All,

Thanks Cpt. Meme for posting. We have been shilling the tournament in a lot of places. Already have some stabberfou players in addition to webDip, vDip, and PlayDip members. Also, have some interest from friends in the F2F crowd. Hoping to rope some top players from there into it.

If anybody has suggestions for other places to post, send me a PM.

Happy Hunting,
Carebear

So far there's a bit of a poor showing for players representing vDip. C'mon, let's get some more signups and stomp the other sites!

So far, we have players from five different online sites! And, we have some FtF players joining too!

Looks like eleven boards so far.
hey all, do I need to open an account at playdip or can I just access the site for the tourney. It sounds like we aren't getting much of a response from our community, is there a reason or do people not want to commit the time? I would think that some of our players would want in on this as we have some exceptional dippers.

I joined on the playdiplomacy site as "vegn". You need to create an account on their site and send a private message with your new username to Carebear on here.

Great to see players signing up!

Just to make it more clear - the ODC tournament is the only major cross-site tournament, and a victory would give you the title of Online Diplomacy Champion for a year. This is the closest thing the online scene has to a World Champion, so you would essentially be crowned the best diplomacy player on the internet.

PlayDip also has a system where you can have it notify you by email of phase changes, so you shouldn't need to be worried about forgetting that you're playing on another site.

Dip Directions?
In episode 11 of the Diplomacy Games podcast Kaner and I discussed longevity aspects and risk management of sites like vDip and webDip to ensure they grow and reduce the chances of going down (either technically speaking or perceptions of IP infringement). We said we'd create a thread for this for others to contribute. What do you reckon?

As mentioned in another thread, I thought I'd summarise here my thoughts on the idea of vDip "dying". Please feel free to add your perspectives on avoiding this to the mix.

Return to Vdip
Hi All!

After a nearly 2.5 year hiatus from playing here, I thought it might be a good time to stop back over and take a peek at what's going on. I've missed some of the variants here, and am hoping to be able to gather up a solid group of players to play a few games (not all at once necessarily) and give me that variant "fix" I've been missing. Anyone interested in some top notch play?

Is there a reason I can't host this variant? I've played in before on this server, and I'd really like to try it again, but I can't find it in the drop down menu for hosting new games.

NWO goes MAD
The current NWO game being run at Redscape incorporated new experimental rules for the nukes: MAD (nuclear strikes can trigger automatic nuclear response). Spring 2005 sees 9 nukes trigger 3 nukes which begat another 3 nukes. Yikes!

Diplomacy Simulator
Hi! I'm new here and I don't know if it was already discussed, but it would be nice to have some sort of simulator to test out moves. Sometimes the rules aren't that easy to apply and it's hard to understand what would happen in a very tricky and unique situation...

diplom.org down?
diplom.org used to be the centre of the online Diplomacy community. Even long past its prime it held tons of interesting resources, variant files, articles, etc. For the last few weeks I haven't had any luck loading the site. Does anybody have any idea what's up?

Luckily, most of it is backed up by the Wayback Machine, hopefully that never disappears: https://web.archive.org/web/20161020130534/http://www.diplom.org/

During the procession of moves this morning, the game experienced a software bug and about half an hour later the map came up with the phase length saying "Crashed". Apparently a mod/developer needs to look at it to fix it. Is there someone who can help us out?
