Forum rules
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. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

NMRs

Postby StarWatcher009 » 26 Mar 2017, 21:00

How do NMRs appear in order history? Does it say it was an NMR or does it just give all units hold.

My specific question is could I play off a hold order as an NMR?

You can make all of your orders to hold, and pretend it was an NMR, if that's what you mean.

Except if it is a protected game.

That strategy works! NMRs are indistinguishable from mass-holds.

Edit: Except, like GPD points out, in a protected game.
