I know it's early but I think we should start thinking about a number of things. Our diplomacy ranks are deep and should give us a distinct advantage. We need to use this to the fullest extent. So I'll start with a few questions... Espionage is a new component in the diplomacy game. How do we intend on using this or not using this? Are we willing to negotiate our espionage knowledge? Are there any tech trades that are completely off limits? In other words, do we have certain long term goals that would make it not conducive for any tech trade? Are we willing to give favorable treatment on beakers to solidify our position? Backstabbing? Personally, I'm against it but realize it could very likely be used against us. Should we drip on teams on a regular basis even when they're non responsive? Do any of you have reports on other players we should be aware of talent wise? IE turnplayers and diplomats? Discuss this and all the other things that are important.
