Replace PPSC with something rank-based?
I've put together a length proposal over on PlayDip to provide a rank-based scoring system for draws that's similar to the Carnage system used in several North American Dip tournaments today.

WWII Tournament
I would like to start a tournament. I've seen the Known World and 1v1 tournaments, and those are great fun. So why not apply it to World War II? I'm still working out the details, but I'll post some details.

Looks interesting!

A question and a comment:
• Why South Senegal instead of Casamance?
• The rivers are hard to see. I would make them a darker blue, especially since they're supposed to separate provinces and it seems to difficult to see at a glance where one province ends and another begins.
Enriador (1396 D (B))
04 Jun 18 UTC
Glad you liked it @JECE!

Casamance does seem like a better name; I took the map names from 'Africa' directly so I didn't notice it.

I will make the rivers dark blue as you suggest. Good catch!
JECE (1184 D)
04 Jun 18 UTC
Yeah, I guess that's all stuff in the original Africa map now that I look at it.
Mercy (2043 D)
04 Jun 18 UTC
Interesting concept.

Any special reason to make powers start with an unequal number of supply centers?
Enriador (1396 D (B))
04 Jun 18 UTC
@Mercy, only Britain & France have 3 SCs rather than 2 SCs. The reason is that these two countries were historically the major colonial powers that eventually grabbed most of Africa for themselves.

Every power has starting SCs where they had an actual colony or a considerable sphere of influence; the sole exception is Tripoli, which was under Ottoman rather than Italian control.
JECE (1184 D)
04 Jun 18 UTC
Well, also Casablanca. Some of the other colonies besides Tripoli and Casablanca may not have existed in 1884 either.

@JECE, wasn't Southern Morocco under joint Spanish-French influence though? Spain even had actual colonial holdings in the Rif.

I briefly considered making Equatorial Guinea the second Spanish center, but that would screw Portugal & Germant a bit.

Spain did have an informal zone of influence in northern Morocco, as well as actually holding Southern Morocco (aka Western Sahara) and the enclaves of Ceuta & Melilla in 1884...
JECE (1184 D)
Wed 06 Jun UTC
Enriador: Damn, Enriador. Western Sahara is not Morocco, no matter what they say. The colonization actually started in 1884, though.

But as I say, it's complicated. There was a theoretical Spanish possession in Southern Morocco too at the time without any actual Spanish presence.

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

Taking over Civil Disorders should be free of charge
Reasoning: the player who takes over a Civil Disorder is not just putting themself in a precarious position (as they must evaluate everybody's styles and strategies) but they are also saving the game's balance and fun.

In order to reward/incentive people to take more CDs, I believe that making it free of charge (rather than current 50% discount) would be for the best. Thoughts?
