Civil Disorders listed at bottom of game
I have a game that is telling me the country, it's size and who is CDing. Why is that a thing now? It's gunboat, fog of war and anonymous!

Our game bugged out, and mods are looking at it. What do we do and what will happen?
So basically, We were playing World War IV 6.2. It was the first time we got our community of players, both on a subreddit and a discord, to play a big 36 player game. Didn't start 100% the best the first year, some players didn't get the rules and ended up starting with 2 units instead of 3.

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

Scuba you are added to the replacement list. Bob has already been replaced.

ScubaSteve is currently in second place in the tournament, how did he end up on the replacement list?
He left before the previous couple of games.
Given that SS has been in the tournament already and his leaving was an issue of being able to join games, I'll bump him back to the top of the reserve list. Which means he's in for Samj who is taking a break. Korwenten, you'll be next up.
ScubaSteve (1266 D)

I didn't leave. I was a replacement in one game and I won.
Yes but the game restriction issue resulted in being replaced. You're back in regardless.

Indeed. Can't wait!

Welcome back ScubaSteve. I have been trying to keep track of the scoring, and according to my records you played in games 3, 5, and 6, but are still in second place through game 7.

He took over for me -- perhaps he got any points I had for the first couple of games?
bozo (2303 D)

No, ScubaSteve earned all of his points by soloing game 6.
Here we go again:

I'm in 11 and 12, and 13, and 14, and 15.
I had hoped to get things moving forward today, but I have a few challenges. I’m kicking myself for not keeping my notes on google drive, as they were in a word document on my computer that crashed a few weeks ago. Best I can tell, bozo and Scuba Steve need to join 11 and 12, and Hirsaege needs to join 12. We need a replacement for YCHTT going forward, and the reserve list in in those notes. That’s where we stand.

Seeing as how we continue to struggle from commitment and reliability issuses causing massive delays in completing this event I would once again suggest that we stop now, declaring Eki the winner of the tournament. I would happily support the idea of starting another KW 901 tournament, but one with 15 players willing to abide by the agreements at signup. There is no point in playing out the final five games now. With the player roster decimated again and less than half of the original players left.
Hey, I want to apologize for dropping but I was a replacement player to begin with. However, if you still need me, I will find a way to make it work. Let me know.
Just pm me the links and nations if it is choose your nation.
I forget if it was choose or if the GM reassigned at start.
eliwhitney (1189 D)

I can substitute.
Since we can't seem to find 15 reliable players to finish up the final 5 games of this tournament then I also think it's time to stop. What a shame, almost what , 2 yrs and 10 games in.........as of now I don't think I'd be for restarting another KW 901 tourny, what would make anyone think we could find 15 players? I guess 15 gunboat games is to to much, so maybe a tourny with less players/games might work.

It's achievable, you just have to run more than 2 games at once so the whole thing runs in a more compressed time range, meaning less time available for people to drop out.
RUFFHAUS 8 (2501 D)
Mon 12 PM UTC
Mouse is correct. A big reason this did not work well was because at least one player *cough cough... Amby* refuses to play more than two games at a time. We should be playing five games at the same time for this map.

I wonder why VDip is not using Territory Diagram to reveal the dinamics of territory occupation in time. Now it's working rather good. But for maps with neutrals it still has several bugs. We use this module on Diplomail. Please check: https://ibb.co/mFZF3o

Known World 901 question re rebuilt armies
The variant page says that "This map is build anywhere and has neutral standing armies that disband when dislodged, but will be rebuild if the relevant Home Supply Center is vacant and unowned during the build-phase in autumn." but looking at completed games, I don't see the standing armies getting rebuilt. Does this mean I need to always occupy my own SCs in the fall or else they turn back into neutral standing armies? Can someone explain this to me?

Mistake in Known World 901 variant
In "Known World 901" we have Principality of Kiev (short - Russia). But it's a mistake which I have fixed when I did the php-adaptation to Western Known World 901 variant. The power must be called as Kievan Rus (short - Rus). It's not Russia at all. So it must be also fixed in Known World 901 variant I think.
