FFA alliances from beginning of game!?: 9/7/2014 12:35:53

How do play an 4 FFA if two players made alliances from the beginning (I just recognized it in round 8, otherwise I would have played differently)?
It can be clearly seen that they don't want to attack each other in any territory, just the remaining players..

How fair it is?
Is there anything to do against it!?
It is quite frustrating to play like that!
Should I play to agree with one of my friend to join an FFA, not attacking each other, defeat others and have fun at the end by killing each other!?
Is it the efficient and proper way to play FFA!?

Here is the (ongoing) game:

"private messages: allowed"..

With that turned on, it is reasonable to assume that players use it, and form alliances. even from turn 1. there's nothing wrong with it

OK, thanks!
I don't like it, but I play with it (I though THAT is called diplomacy game)

What if 'private message' is not allowed and make alliances still!?
There is many solution to bypass that limitation (eg: history played against that player)..

At least auto-game created FFA should be 'private message' disabled, it could help a bit..

That would be unfair play imo, not much you can do beside blacklisting if someones does it though.

Personally I think PMs makes FFAs much more fun, however if you don't want that; I suggest you make your own games with that option disabled.

I think alliances are fine and dandy. On thing you can do is get one of the people to turn against them if you offer them a good deal... otherwise, make an alliance with anyone else not allied :)

Private messages on/off make no difference since the mail system was introduced.. As long we have no anonymity system, private messages are ALWAYS possible now..

It completely depends on tge hosts rules. If ge says alliances are ok, they are. When pm is allowed, there are always truces anyway. I think the mail system is hardly ever used to make truces in ffas fridge. Of course it's possible but not as comfortable
