I love vDip
Enjoying this new golden age of variant development.

Hat tip to Oli and those building variants and supporting their development in the background.

Win Conditions less than majority
Some of you with a bit more experience at vDip can clue me in here.

How does vDip currently adjudicate when more than one player meets the SC requirement for victory simultaneously? More details below.

Is England* vs Turkey truly balanced?
The stats spread on England* vs Turkey is innocuous enough. England* wins 55% of games which do not end in a draw, Turkey wins 45%. England is favored, but not to the extent that Turkey can't win; the game is not balanced, but it also isn't drastically skewed either way.

However, I have recently encountered an opening from England that I'm struggling to counter as Turkey.

I have been banned from webDiplomacy because Zultar wants it to be a safe space for neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

You nice people will have to put up with me instead (until I get banned here, I guess).

We're happy to accept 'webDip refugees' here, but this isn't webDip and generally speaking it's common courtesy to keep politics off the forum (maybe with the exception of one thread that gets bumped back up every so often, but I know a considerably portion of our playerbase are annoyed with that one too).

As such, starting off your thread with a political point isn't the best way to introduce yourself here. None of us care what you got banned for, and we're more than happy to play Diplomacy with you, but we'd all prefer not to let our forum become like webDip's.

Dpoints can be exchanged for goods and services.
kaner406 (1430 D Mod (B) (B))
17 Aug 17 UTC
dPoints are what you use to buy into a game of diplomacy. Same as the system they have at webDip.

vPoints (aka vRanking) is scoring system similar to the Ghost Ranking over at webDip. Currently it calculates your ranking for all games completed since 1/1/2016.

ignorant question: what is the history between webDiplomacy and vDiplomacy? As in, the sites look reeeeeeeeally similar, and stuff, though some differences are apparent.
Mapu (2145 D (B))

I think the guy who wrote webdip open sourced the code and the guy who managed this site forked it into vdip.
webDip was originally phpDip. phpDip was created by kestas as open source. vDip is Oli's brainchild for developing variants and new features which occasionally get moved over to webDip. Kestas and Oli work well together and get along and the sites are best described as siblings with webDip being the older sibling.
Gotcha, thanks

@ Fluminator: I am not GM-ing Mafia 32, of course. I would love to but I can't accept Zultar's rule that I have to be non-threatening to Nazis.

I believe the Committee are arranging for someone to GM it but I'm not sure.

Force drawn games
Games with fixed end year are (for ranking purposes) treated like solo victories for the power with the largest SC tally (even when PPSC scoring is used). Is that intentional? Not that I think it matters much to me, but I do find it rather odd, it would seem like the more logical approach would be that they are treated as force drawn, or possibly use affect ranking differently depending on scoring system used.
