It's because most hosts now put a prerequisite of 20% boot rate max, so you can't see most of them...

Because hosts have realized that noob players are impossible to handle so they put level and boot caps on their games to keep annoying players away.

Here's a couple of hypotheses

1) No one has the time for a super-long diplo all in one sitting
2) More people switching over to strategic games (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, etc...)
3) Booting - strategic or due to players not playing - kills the game quickly
4) Why play a RT diplo when you can play a multi-day diplo?

non-open seated multi-day diplos.
That's where most people who really play have gone.

1) 'Good' diplo players moving to clans and invite-only games.
2) WarLight losing popularity in general.
3) They really get tedious after 20th game with half players booted in turn 3, four PE's, no fun roleplay and general noobiness.

I don't think warlight is losing popularity. RT diplos for sure are, but not warlight.

It's been in strong decline ever since the Dashboard update - folk just quit Warlight, or stopped bothering with RT games.

I know I used to only play real-time games when I was a noob, mostly RoR and diplos. But it is so much simpler to play multi day games, where I can take my turn whenever and not worry about boots. Like others said, it is not very much fun when the USA, China, and Russia get booted from a real-time. And noobs are the primary players of them. Multi-day are annoying because you always have to be checking chat and you can get them mixed up and stuff, but overall they are still better.

I think it's mostly to do with the number of booters, I tried to host one last week, and I think about 3-4 people made it past the 3rd turn, waste of time. I tend to just host invite only Multi-day Diplos now, and occasionally run public Multi-days to find new good Diplo players, but that's about it now. And from the public ones I maybe only find 2 or 3 new good regular players.

I think Diplos have just had their day, people are getting more into the Strat team games now I think...

I can't tell if you got really unlucky, or if nobody even semi-experienced wants to play with you.

I stopped playing them due to a lack of quality players who understand what a Diplo really is...

Most RT Diplo games are ruined by this.

^ Sums it up well.

Open games get too many cancerous players or don't fill at all.

So people who are actually skilled move to invite-only games.

Add it up to problems in WarLight's falling playerbase and there it is.

To me, RT and diplo are contradictory terms.

They can actually be pretty fun, but you have to enter those with a different mentality compared to the one you go into invite-only ones - go in to win, not to roleplay, or you'll be disappointed.

I like MD invite only more because roleplaying is love, roleplaying is life, but nothing like a stress ball RT game every now and then :P

Yeah, I think it's the strategic booting, and too many people who don't read the rules and become PEs.

@Fleecemaster, Feel free to invite me to any diplos, I'm always up for it :D

The wait time is horrible. You make a 20 person RT diplo and it takes 2 hours to fill. Everyone is afk and you either wait another hour or have 10 boots first turn. Maybe you could still save it, but other people get discouraged and leave too.
