193409: Friends Game with video, voice and message chat

Postby Mr_Blobby » 23 Apr 2021, 02:01

You are invited to a game with a difference! I would like to try something new and hope that you will join me and have a bit of fun.

In this friends game, we will use ICQ to provide all of the comms outside of PlayDip. This is LEGAL because it's a friends game.

In order to join, simply go to game 193409 "ICQ Diplomacy" and join using the password "icqdip"

Create a FREE ICQ account at http://www.icq.com if you don't already have an account. This will allow video, voice and text communication with fellow players. I would advise you to set your ICQ Nickname to the same as your PlayDip name to prevent any confusion. ICQ is available on Windows, macOS, IOS and Android.

Once the game starts, join this private ICQ Channel https://icq.im/AoLGlKpz5ligLZVNZQc and introduce yourself. Also go into the Public Press and give your ICQ Nickname so that others can communicate with you.

Play begins and continues as normal except we communicate within ICQ where we can chat one to one or in groups (of allies) using messenger, voice or video.

If you have any issues with ICQ once the game begins, come up in the Public Press and I will try to help.

Enjoy!

This is a game with players scattered across the world and so is active 24 hours a day. You may do better by suggesting a time or times each day when these conversations are to take place. Also, I assume that "Public Press" and Live Game rules apply or does the software system you are suggesting allow for two-way channels for private chats and negotiations?

PS I am not planning to join myself but just some suggestions from an interested observer.

You make a good point Latanst1.

It is an assumption that the main activity will be centered around UK time however, with the ability to send voice messages and text messages anytime, we can account for time shifts. You can have one to one voice/video chats or you can have group chats and anything that is not posted in the play diplomacy channel (which is shared) will be completely private.

Allies that want a voice/video chat can arrange times between themselves to do this. I speak to the US and Europe all the time and we just have to arrange slots to do this. Where it does get difficult is when you're in Australia/Asia but as I said, you can still exchange text based messages and even voice messages as well.

I do hope that this will be of interest and people will join.

Cheers!

Any takers for a non-rank game with voice chat?
