Diplomacy World Cup: Starting

Postby iShine » 12 Nov 2010, 16:21

Woot! All games have been sent out to the captains for them to assign players to.

I hope we can have all of this done by Sunday Night. (EST)

If a player is auto surrendered or surrenders purposefully, it is up to the Captain of the surrenderee's team to find a replacement for the player. If a replacement is not found in 1 and a half weeks time, then the team in question will recieve a 5 point penalty because of the surrender.

Good luck, and have fun in your games!

I will look for a replacement to the best of my ability. If no replacement is available, well, then, the team that the player belonged to is automatically out of the tournament.

WWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are proposing to throw out an entire team because of one person?
Far too harsh.

Real life is far more important than some pokey diplomacy game and from time to time, even with the best intentions, people have to address real life first.
If a replacement is needed, then I'd get the Team Captain to find one.
If a surrender actually happens then give the team a big points fine.

And I'd make that punishment irrespective of whether you think the position is playable or not because what you think might not be playable, others will.
For instance, a one centre Italy in tunis. Playable or not? That answer all depends on whter there is a stalemate line set up?
Do not bring subjective decision making into this - therein lies disaster.
Make the rule clear cut and nobody will have room to argue.

Surrender = X point deduction.

Simples

As an observer from the sidelines, I must say I am quite excited to see this tournament start. Yes, iShine may not be the most experienced commissioner but this here is a fine idea (apart from the fact that the result is already determined as team Canada will win handily). New blood guarantees new thinking, and this 'world cup' is a prime example of such a fun and novel concept coming to fruition. As long as the senior members help out the newcomers in preventing difficulties I think we're in for a fine ride.

But do get those troubles sorted out. ;)

Gee I must be getting sick in my head...once again I agree with Stander...A surrender = X points fine is the best solution. No argument then.

Two teams seem to have missed the signup so far for all games. I'm itching to go.

Go the Red Devils :twisted:
Melchett: Field Marshal Haig has formulated a brilliant new tactical plan to ensure final victory in the field.
Blackadder: Ah. Would this brilliant plan involve us climbing out of our trenches and walking very slowly towards the enemy?
