My pet peeve: ignoring history in an alternative diplo. The main idea is that the game seperates itself from history, but the past is still normal. You can't just ignore history like that and let the British ally the Irish, or the Russians ally the Japanese.

Bonus peeve: calling russia an asian country

This is just a symptom of poor game design. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingmaker_scenario

Don't hate the player, just stop playing shitty games.

I know this might apply more to RP's, but I think it still works for all diplos: When someone takes a massive slot that is vital to the game, and either gets booted early, or doesn't participate at all, ruining the game (especially in games where the host specified the rules about booting/participation, and the vitalness of said slot).

People who completely disregard all diplomacy, and go on cussing and slurring rampages for little or no reason. Also falls under not realizing the game is a game. I usually blacklist those people. They just make Warlight a worse place.

If they apologize and try to make amends, it's a different story, which is why I always try to give people a second chance. When they keep doing it or even start directing it at you, that's when I start to get pissed.

but that's not really a "tactic". More like a pet peeve. I'd say teaming up with some OP guy who willingly disregards the basic rules of the game. They ruin the game for everyone.

Yeah. The worst attitudes I have dealt with only revealed themselves as such after they got called out on their initial minor BS. One guy I had (vassal to my lord) kept trying to defeat my larger armies in a rebellion through manipulation in the PM's (implying he had turned my neighbors against me). The manipulation was so expansive and enjoyable to counter, I was honestly impressed. But once I called him out in the public chat for his failed tactics, he went bezerk. Not only did he just decide to ignore the declaration rule, but his rant became so rushed that nobody could figure out what he was typing. Ironically, that guy and the other worst player were both in GOT Diplos/RP games.

I mean, of the reasons I enjoyed TheOriginalTomQuinn's diplo so much was that he was a veteran host who for the most part didn't put up with that BS. Since he left last fall, I haven't found a diplo maker who has put out consistently solid games. I mean, in one of the last of his games still going, we have been stuck on the same turn for 4-5 months because everybody has refused to boot him.

I don't think the gifting part is bad since it's useful if you don't want to get booted in the game that you don't want to play any longer (That's only if there is an option to accept surrender from all players in an game), and out of all the annoying tactics in Diplo games, I would go for the person who played an major slot then just surrenders or get booted out the game in the first few turns, it does ruin Diplo games easily

@Bman34 I’d try out THE TungstenTrex’s warlight: Evolution games. The entire premise is geared towards limiting the influence of warmongers and people who refuse to roleplay. By segmenting games into different time periods, he has the ability to roleplay certain historical events while still giving people the ability to create their own empires.

Also he is quitting and leaving the hosting to me, so I am pre-emptively sucking my own dick.

It only involves one dude, making it only 50% gay

It's 1 dude/1 dude involved, so 100% gay. If you got a friend to watch though, it'd go back to only 50% gay since there'd be two people involved and not just one, but only one of them would be gay.
