The Sandquest
So I've seen some players here go on some grand "quests" I'll say to play every variant on the site. I've decided I want to join the club and do so aswell, but I want to do so with some sort of cool "twist". Trying to solo every variant is a little impractical, and I'm not certain about something super simple like making them all gunboats. So anyone got some ideas?

Inherent Balance
I was thinking about my past games today, and I noticed a pattern: when I played or fought against a (mostly) sea power that started in the corner, that power tended to have the advantage because of their spawn place and unit composition on the map. Does anyone else feel like this is the case, or do you think that these types of powers are balanced?
For reference, I was thinking of Italy--Balkans 1860, Srivijaya--Known World 901, Madagascar--Africa, and Japan--Youngstown WWII.

Help finding a vdiplomacy variant name
What was the name of the East Asian map, that I believe was being playtested(?), where the countries were: China, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam(?), Indonesia, and Brunei?

Can’t remember what it was called and I can’t find it on my matches played for some reason
South China Sea

作為中國人,台灣人的龍根可真是能屈能伸呢
拿著大陸的水電,買著美國的軍火,學著日本的文化,壓著自己的原住民。
國軍之於台灣就如同日本人之於南京一般,因此會有原住民稱自己喝著黃河水長大

Come on, we come to this site to play games instead of performing political correctness. We all know that the Chinese navy is stronger than all other countries in the variant combined, but this can only ruin the game. For the same reason, and since we have to admit that making Taiwan Chinese will make China way too overpowered in the game, we don't do it. The famous "Cold War" variant isn't counting even Alaska as part of NATO, so is that separatism too? It's just not about politics at all from the very start, and this is not even place for talking about these things. If you fail to simply enjoy the game you should go to somewhere you can find yourself more comfortable in.

Also, China may have to put an end to her civil war like USA, and we can protect the political neutrality like Switzerland when it's needed. I'm new to this site but I've heard about Western Asian variants got bombarded by star and crescent. Yet we're still doing them, to have more fun. We shall play these variants on the beaches.

Yes, this is all part of a game...not focused on implying anything "real" other than geography (for most maps). Not geopolitics! There's at least one map where the US is split into multiple individual powers (not the civil war ones) and I'd be shocked if there was intended to be any implication by...Illinois being its own power lol. Not for or against, because it literally doesn't matter in this context. It's a game.

...unless Haven has got some political undertones to it? (jk)

Is there any modern Middle Eastern variant? That wouldn't be controversial!
Fake Al (1747 D)
Sat 30 Mar UTC
I expected something like this when I created the variant. I mean it's based on modern geopolitics and all about territory claim disputes, so it was bound to ruffle some feathers. I kind of expected people to complain that the Paracel or Spratly islands are rightful land of so-and-so country.

The complaints about Taiwan being a power are funny. Yes, Taiwan is a part of China. But the start date of the variant is 2000. At this time, and today. Taiwan and mainland China operate as separate states (PRC and ROC) with separate governments and separate militaries. They also have de facto control of different parts of the South China Sea islands.

Uhhh solution: rename Taiwan to unidentified island territory

ER Team Game Revival
Hey Folks! I was recently thinking about the Europa Renevatio Team game we did a couple years ago and I think we can do it again, better this time. Among the improvements, it may be ideal to determine the teams ahead of time and make them public so we can try to come up with a "balanced" set of 9 teams of 4. Would anyone else (err... 35 others?) want to give it a shot?

[Speed Europa variant] moving from Burgundy to Ruhr should not be possible
Hello,

As noticed by Tyran (user ID 2518) in the game "Wolf Pack v3" (game ID 58137) armies may move from Burgundy to Ruhr and vice versa (see the Map info tab of the variant's page) while the map doesn't say that. Maps on the external variant homepage also, so I suppose it is an error in the code, not the map.
