Strategy
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. When discussing strategy, reference should not be made to any active game. This section of the Forum is for general strategy discussion, not specific situations within games.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
Posts which refer to a specific situation in an active game, or which link directly to an active game, are subject to editing or removal.

Great video! You could have spoken faster, but I really enjoyed it.

No magic formula here. This is completely dependent on the game situation and your relationship with the player outside of the particular game. Work toward improving relationships, whatever they are. Learn about your opponent putside of Dip. Even if the game situation is such that you need to eliminate a player, you will still have something to talk about. You can compliment them on their tenacious defense against you.
Play every game of Diplomacy as if it will be the last game of Diplomacy you will ever play.
