    totally. I've actually found that 24 hours with shorter builds and retreats is my money spot. Lets me get in lots of negotiating, and it's reasonable that i'll be in front of a computer at least once every 24 hours.

    I wouldn't mind a tighter deadline, but I don't really have a problem with how it is now either. Although it is of course a shame if Turkey is going to just be on auto-pilot for the rest of the game.

    I'm for a tighter deadline-as it is right now I don't really think about setting my orders till day 5 or so. Also a reboot would be nice as having to wait for deadline each phase will drag this out

    Yeah, we can't play a game without a Turkey.

    I would also vote for keeping the same countries as we have now. Feel like I really haven't played AU, yet, and would still like to.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger KøbenhavnRegistered User regular
    I don't know if we should give up this game and start another right now, but if we do I think I might like to have a chance at getting another country. If not I suppose I can live with Italy. At least they're not Austria or Germany, and will usually survive longer.

    Dude, I am playing Italy in another game right now, and it's crazy fun. Of course, I am flourishing, but it's rad.

    Also, as I pointed out, the other game that I finished, Italy totally soloed his way to 18 centers, it was pretty neat to watch.

    I don't really like playing England, I think they're boring. I would rather we shuffle powers, but I'm not married to the idea. If people feel strongly the other way, I'm cool with staying where we are. If we restart we could also set it up so that people could request powers, like give someone the option of 3 and let the computer sort out who gets what. That way you could potentially avoid playing something you don't want, and be able to play something you do want.

    Well I like playing Italy right now! But half-assed surprise attacks probably won't work the second time with the same Austria. I guess I could just go for the replacement Turkey instead. Don't tell him/her I said that, though. Shh.

    But in the end I don't really have very strong preferences for powers either, my entire Diplomacy career is still these 3 turns. Except I'm not too keen to play Austria (for the moment), it seems hard to defend.

    So reboot or are we just going to continue and wait for the Turkey timer (see what I did there)

    Assuran is the one who made the game.

    I vote for restart. We find someone to replace Tmoiy

    I actually didn't set up the game over on that site (edit note: amusingly enough, it was Tmoiy who set up the game over there).

    From a fair play perspective, I definately can see why we would need a restart. Otherwise, A/T/I have an inactive player we can just steal from.

    I also vote for random countries again. No point playing the same setup, since country relationships were already formed.

    Okay, so I think that the thing we need to do is all surrender from the game, and then someone makes a new one.

    I will do so if necessary.

    AU has surrendered but does not concede defeat.

    Okay, I have created a new game

    It is Critical Failures Redux (game 35023). We can all join as we find another player.

    @texasheat, you seemed interested earlier.
    Do you want to pick up our 7th spot?

  • AssuranAssuran Is swinging on the Spiral Registered User regular
    Russia surrenders, but only due to the onset of winter.

    Also, joined the new game.

    i put in 24 hour orders btw.

    I think that everyone should be able to manage, and the game will go much much quicker.

    I may miss out on the December 6th order. I hope to be able to access a computer that day for this game and for the Phalla, but I'm having sinus surgery that day, so I'm not 100% sure.

    BTW, I am playing IT in two other Diplomacy games so if I get IT in this game, I will kill you all.

    Hah, you know that you've doomed yourself, don't you?

    Though seriously, I'm also not going to be happy with Italy...for the same kind of reason.

    I kind of want Austria, Turkey, or Russia.

    Maybe Germany...

    The mighty Italian empire has also surrendered. Time for wine and maybe a nap.

    Well, we have 6 & 38th was our 7th but he doesn't seem to be around. He hasn't even signed up for MrT's sweet new phalla.

    Life is just a bit too crazy lately to commit to 24 hour move timing, so hopefully I can catch the next game. Had fun while it lasted though! :)

    It's cool dude, you take care of your life stuff.

    So lets see if we can edit the thread title to get ourselves another player to round out our 7

    It's off this site, if that's what you meant, at http://www.playdiplomacy.com

    It is game title Critical Failures Redux (game 35023).

    The password is what it always is for LFHX games

    Ok. Maybe I'm doing this wrong. I searched for both the game number and the name and it comes back with "No active games"

  • stever777stever777 AFK most Saturdays Registered User regular
    I see what you mean.
    Maybe @LoserForHireX has to invite you in?
    Not sure.

    I don't think the game will show up under active before it has seven players. Have you tried under the 'join game' tab? For me it's under 'pending games', but I think that's only for people who already joined.

    PS: "LFHX" ?

    It should be able to be found under Join Game but it's not there.
    How else could people join games that didn't have 7 yet?
    Weird.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger KøbenhavnRegistered User regular
    Well, it would make sense that it doesn't show up for us since we've already joined. So it's under pending games, for us. It is weird though if BobCesca can't find it. Especially since it seemed to work alright for Soulgrind.
