Neither -- There is NO Elite Player Bias.

Uncountably many, and counting.

This originated from the thread next-door...

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2604

Diplomacy being Diplomacy, elites constantly playing with and against each other would get really, really boring (much like vampires playing baseball). They'd know each others strengths and weaknesses. The game would almost become too predictable for everybody. Or a game full of elites may be the first septuple to last beyond 1902.

Playing with novices and intermediates adds in the element of mystery, suspense, and overall fun.

(Moved to Diplomacy general forum. Since it's not really about cheaters and all.)

I'd say Dip. I have no bias towards elite players whatsoever. (Really, it's okay - you can ally with me!)

Lol. But come on, let's be fair:
Only ONE of my "public" games went up in flames in 1902. The others didn't start to burn until 1903 and 1906!

Got a problem, schwarls?

Don't bottle it up, man, let it out!

It's not healthy to repress your emotions like this. You'll do yourself harm if you don't learn to express your pain.
