Divided States Team Game
Hey guys! Back in the day, we used to do a lot of team games on here(chaos map, classic, etc). Im curious if people would be interested in doing a team game of the divided states map... Yes, I know, 50 people is a LOT to get for a team game. Here is how it would work.

VP
Kinda curious on VP... I understand that the gains are lesser as one gets higher, but how does one player (for example) get to over 2000 with under 12 total games and only 1 win? I know its not that consequential in the grand scheme of things. but as I get to a moderately respectable total, the vp gains from a win or draw seem trivial and disproportionate to lost vp when losing. How does VP calculations actually work?

Giving SCs up in order to prevent a solo win.
What’s the opinion of everyone when it comes to giving up ones SCs to a non-leader in order to help prevent a solo win? Good strategy or cheating?

Dropping out due to life getting too busy/complicated
Hi all, I am not sure how but I have seen it before. How do I drop out of all my games if I just do not have the time for it anymore? I would hate to ruin the ongoing games my fellow players are in and would like to have a way to drop out without a penalty. Would be greatly appreciated!! :)

Question on retreats
Hello all, I haven't found a satisfying answer on it on this page. So to clarify it ones and for all: If two units bounce into one territory, does this prevent a third unit to retreat into it in the upcoming retreat phase?

Thanks for the answer! I hope this thread helps others too.

Interactive map bug

Thanks

Change your browser! Google Chrome has troubles working with the interactive right now. On my phone I use my native Xiaomi browser. On my PC I used Edge, but recently the problem fixed itself after an update.

ive always used Chrome and never had issues (both laptop and mobile). If it's purely a Chrome issue, shouldn't everyone using Chrome have it?

Can you make sure, that the issue persists in the latest Chrome version for you and give your browser version and operating system. I might be able to check it out this weekend.

I have the same issue in Chrome, but it only seems to not work on larger maps (i.e. WWIII, Europa Renovatio, etc.) Works fine on classic-sized maps.

It happened to me on chrome in my old mobile but it does not anymore in my new one, still on chrome. So, there are more variables, not only the browser.

I was not able to reproduce this unfortunately. The interactive map worked fine for me in Chrome on all available devices. But as issues occurred several times recently even though the implementation was not touched for years now, it would be nice to find out what is going on.

If the issue persists for some of you, you might be able to help me by checking for error messages in the web console. You can access the console by hitting the F12 key in Chrome and navigating to the "Console" tab in the panel that appears.

Also the information on whether only certain variants are affected can be very helpful. Although this seems to be a general issue for some of you.

Sometimes clearing the browsers cache can help too (I believe there was once a weird Chrome bug that could be fixed by doing this but I have not found any records).

Chrome on Android phones had some issues mit the interface ~ 6 years ago but unless you are browsing on such an ages-old version that should not affect you.

When the functionality was deployed somewhat like 8 years ago it was quite demanding on weaker mobile devices. But that should not be a problem nowadays, especially as a critical memory issue was fixed at some point. Anyway, you can decrease the demand on your device by deactivating the territory-grey-out. That might especially help when you observe issues only in larger variants.

Re: Also the information on whether only certain variants are affected can be very helpful. Although this seems to be a general issue for some of you.

Yes I forget to mention it only occurred in ER. I first thought it was my connection, unable to hold on big maps, until others mentioned the same/similar issue.

Since my connection is still the same -I only changed the device- then I concluded it was maybe a set of factors, with the common ground being the Chrome browser (version?).

No error. I simply lost all orders put in through interactive mode, the IMap simply simply disappeared and I was sent back to zero...

This is not a problem to me anymore...

Is the ModForum still being used? I'm in no hurry, but I posted this over two weeks ago:
Subject: Can't create new game with custom phase length

I'm trying to create a game with 42-hour phases, but keep getting this error: "The phase value is too large or small; it must be between 5 minutes and 10 days."
I was able to do this a few years ago without any problem: gameID=32997
