Tier List for Gunboat Diplomacy

Hello friends, I've written a new article:
BrotherBored's Tier List for Gunboat Diplomacy

This article places each of the 7 powers into "Tiers" of strength. I explain how the no-press rule alters each country's capabilities and gives rise to the peculiar Gunboat metagame.

I've also got advice for how to incorporate this information into your strategic thinking.

Maybe you should start a game and teach me a lesson?
