First Move Tendencies on PlayDip

So, based on a recent thread , a question came up about the tendencies of first moves for each unit in countries. As someone who was curious about this, here are the frequency of moves done here on site in Classic games (with any seemingly-NMR game removed). As before, the data is formatted as ALL_GAMES / DRAW_OR_WIN / DRAW_OR_WIN-ALL_GAMES. I've marked in red/blue moves that are off by at least 1%, as with the 18000+ games we have, I'm pretty sure that these are statistically significant differences. I only am reporting openings that are played by at least 1% of players on the site, as there are a lot of... strange support orders; any order listed below as 0% was really <1%. If you're interested in any of the other openings that were <1%, let me know and I can dig those up for you. Feel free to discuss your thoughts on what you see!

Huh, the variations of the Balkan Gambit are the most used Austria moves. Interesting...

Same stats as above, but instead this compares moves in ALL_GAMES vs solos. It's mostly the same, but there's a few subtle differences. Enjoy!

And I'll probably get in trouble at work for taking the time to do this, but split out by openings by country (again, all of the below have occurred in >1% of the games). This table is different; it's listed as ALL / WIN_OR_DRAW / SOLO So Vie Hold / Tri -> Alb / Bud -> Ser is used 2.75% of the time by any player, 2.76% of the time by someone involved in the draw, and 3.07% of the time by those who end up soloing.

I think you meant "ITALY" to be the header here (in the OP only - the rest looks correct; but I didn't even see them get posted)...

Thanks very much for doing all of this, btw. This'll keep me occupied in thought for a while...

I'm impressed by the number of invalid orders... Edi-Nwy? Lon-Bel? StP (sc)-Swe? :roll:

I don't know what you're talking about ;) (Thanks for pointing that out!)

You should see some of the ones that didn't make 1%... Edi-Cly, for example, has been ordered 7 times on the site in 1901 ;)

Wow thanks for this it is very informative and I have only just stared scratching the surface of what is there.

Couple of things I have found:

Austrian opening: F(Tri)-Alb, A(Bud)-Ser, A(Vie)-Gal
In the early days of diplomacy from the sample of postal games in http://www.diplom.org/~diparch/resource ... enings.htm this was the second most popular Austrian but it has been attempted less than 1% of games on playdip.

Russian Opening: Mos to Ukr, StP to GoB, War Hold
Maybe there needs to be some more openings named, according to http://www.diplom.org/Online/Openings/interactive.html? there are 5 variations of the Ukraine System (Mos to Ukr, StP to GoB) but none of these include War hold. 8% of Playdip Games have Russia opening this way.
