Changes to make PPSC better
Currently, the PPSC system rewards points in a solo. It has a number of perverse effects on gameplay. In the subsequent post(s), I will outline changes that could reform PPSC and reduce its detrimental impact.

Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

Manifest Destiny map issue
There seems to be a mistake in the Manifest Destiny map (fleets can move between one particular sea region and an inland region, which isn’t documented as being intentional and seems to just be a problem). Is the forum the right place to report these sorts of issues?

1 SC, 0 units: a bug with the new system
Currently, I'm playing in a game where I currently have 1 SC and 0 units because my only unit was forced to disband. However, an interesting bug occurs, because the Save/Ready buttons still appear at the bottom of the screen, with no orders listed above them. Can someone fix this?

Chaos Colors

I'm in(or spectating, you'll never know) a Chaos game right now. The colors suddenly changed and nobody likes it.

I too agree that it is an unnecessary "color update" that really should have been avoided.

It was implemented on WebDip because people complained about the orangeness of the Balkans, however if overcorrects and changes much more than is necessary.

Is it possible to have the Chaos color scheme changed back?

This was done to make the color differences more visible. The previous color schema made telling neighboring countries difficult. The new one addresses that and makes them easy to differentiate.

The colors are horrible. That is a price many people aren't willing to pay. I suggest you ask the players instead of just going out and changing something like that so quickly.

Yes, I understand that you seem to hate most of the recent styling changes from webdip, but that opinion doesn't seem unanimously shared. Your thoughts on it have been noted though. I won't be changing that on the main code base, but Oli's welcome to make any changes he sees fit here.
I kinda feel like with large games such as chaos there will always be difficulties discerning some of the different countries, but in all honesty I don't think chaos looks all that bad (admittedly I'm not completely sure what it looked like before the update).
ubercacher16 (1671 D)

@jmo, most of the players surviving in the game are saying that they despise it as much as me. While not unanimously shared the opinion is certainly widespread. I created this thread so Oli would see it and change the colors back.

I do agree that some sort of color change was necessary for the Chaos variant, but really only for the Balkans, as they were just a mess of orange, personally i believe that changing the Balkans would have likely fixed the problems most had.

I second ubercacher. The recent updates were done without any consultation with the community. Now we've got colors that don't match their countries (changing colors is one thing, but the colors in the chatlog and nation name aren't changed to match the map colors, leading to confusion on which country is who on the map, plus the earlier maps weren't changed), I've gotten at least 5 different "Error while sending message" since the update, something that had never happened once previously in my 5 years on this site. Today the site itself is taking minutes just to load a page, despite the fact that I am able to watch youtube on 720p at 1.5 speed with the same internet. There is a serious issue with the recent update, and I think it may be a good idea to just scrap it entirely, because I really don't see why this update was necessary at all.
Aircrosby (1027 D)
22 May 19 UTC
I don't know if a complete scrap is necessary, and the website has loaded fine for me these past couple of days, but a heads up might have made this update a little smoother for all of those using the game mode.

I was also in or spectating this Chaos game, and I posted a quick question in the ModForum about it. It's been three days with no response so I thought I would run it by this thread instead; I clicked "Disable Notices" to hopefully cease the "new message" notifications from the game's super active public press chat. This has not worked. Is that what "disable notices" is supposed to do? If not, can I turn off the new message notifications at the top of the screen for a game with another button? Thanks!
jmo1121109 (1200 D Mod)
23 May 19 UTC
No, that stops the actual notifications in the center column. The messages are independent and not currently something that can be disabled.
nopunin10did (1041 D)

Y'all might want to separate out threads about bugs with the site to be independent of the thread about the aesthetic design of a variant.

Thank you JMO! And yeah sorry for the not-extremely related post but I hadn't heard anything in the mod forum and didn't know what to do.

Illogical Rating Assignments
Take a look at the following link:
https://vdiplomacy.com/hof.php?gameID=37006

Now, you can see the "brains" of the rating system. As you can see, the system deducts less from a player who CD'd than a player who kept playing and survived. Why? Shouldn't players be held accountable for their CDs?
