E/G alliance—how to stab?

Postby BrotherBored » 09 Dec 2020, 04:51

I got asked about how England and Germany can stab each other in the Diplomacy Dojo. I don't normally create a forum post here to direct players to episodes of this Podcast (I already publish blog posts >1 per month and this podcast is every 2-3 weeks so I do get nervous about being reprimanded for spamming or some such, haha).

However, I think Diplomacy Dojo podcast has really hit its stride with this episode. I listened to this episode myself (been a while since we recorded it!) and I thought: dang...this is a really good discussion.

Diplomacy Dojo Episode 6 is about stabbing your ally when you are Germany or England allied to the other.

This could be the episode that convinces you to subscribe to the Podcast, or try to come to the Dojo yourself!

The preceding episode about how to calculate risks and when to take them is also pretty good...

Dear BoredBrother,

I enjoy your insights and perspectives. However, the podcasts, etc. are personally very inconvenient as I have to find a place where I can sit for an extended time without bothering others. I am sure your other fans have there own views but I strongly prefer the written posts and would be thrilled if the podcasts and other volume producing posts could include a script of some kind that can be read with the volume off. Just FYI from a fan.

Cheers,
Latanst1

Hi Brotherbored,

The plethora of content you've released about England recently has been fantastic timing for me as it coincided with me being allocated England for the first time in a Gunboat game. I was able to use your opening, your thoughts on EG center division and this podcast on stabbing in the west to greatly improve my strategy in key points of the game, as well as an older article about stalemate lines when working out how to finish the job. Invaluable stuff for us newer players competing in ranked games with Veterans who have learnt through experience.

For all that amazing content, you have my thanks. I wrote an AAR here ( https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=61506 ) if you care to see your writing put into action :)
