Classicist Application: New Member

Postby bard parker » 15 Feb 2021, 23:47

My name is Mark and I would love to join the Classicists.

I have completed 18 games, (11 ranked games 7 non ranked).
I am currently playing 4 more ranked games on this site (for a total of 22 games)

Of these games, there were no surrenders nor NMR’s.
(In fact, the only surrender I’ve ever had was the first game I joined, where I took over the abandoned position of a 2 center Italy. I didn’t know enough about Diplomacy to realize it was a hopeless position and I surrendered b/c I didn’t realize I could play more than one game at a time).

I have never been sanctioned by the administrators.
I fully agree with the Classist Constitution and look forward to some high quality Diplomacy games.

I am a total addict to Diplomacy and have previously entered in many games across several sites. However, as real life has gotten busy, I have realized I need to bring it down to only a few games at a time and need to screen out the “poor quality games. The desire for a few high quality games is why I seek to join the classicists.

To avoid losing interest in games that are going poorly, I simply change my objectives in the game. My goals in the games, in order, are: #1 Solo, #2: Draw, #3 Survive #4 Revenge. By always shooting for the highest objective that I can achieve, I avoid losing interest when a game is going poorly and always play to the bitter end.

Thanks for reviewing my application.

I'm a little unclear on what it takes to join the Classicists. I'd like to apply as well if possible. Please advise.

I played you recently in my first press diplomacy game, and you exemplified a classicist . I'll be applying myself once I finish my 5th game.

Hi Bard Parker

Thanks for your application to join the Classicists.

Your site playing record qualifies you to join at Silver level so I've put you on the membership list for that tier.

When you've completed 20 qualifying games you'll be eligible to apply for promotion to Gold.

Congratulations and welcome to the group!

All the best

Hi Wolfensberger

Thanks for your application to join the Classicists.

Your site playing record qualifies you to join at Gold level so I've put you on the membership list for that tier.

You've currently played 3014 out of 3051 turns at 98.79% so just below the 99% Platinum level requirement.

Here's a link to the Classicists constitution in case you've not yet seen it:
