Game drawn
12 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1905: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
02 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.

04 Jun 20 UTC I think there was *potentially* a two way draw there but I didn't want to risk the throw. Would've been a difficult one to go for for sure.
04 Jun 20 UTC Gg
Oh look another AGI three way :P
04 Jun 20 UTC Meanwhile my fall 1908 may have been the single shittiest move set I’ve even done in my life
Just absolutely KICKING myself after it
Oh well...
04 Jun 20 UTC Oh I see, valis and chaqa were IA here
Yeah I was always screwed :P
04 Jun 20 UTC gg.
04 Jun 20 UTC You know that country assignment isn't really random anymore, but takes into account what you played before?
04 Jun 20 UTC Yep
04 Jun 20 UTC I'm not sure exactly how the algorithm works, but the country assignments we've gotten in these games are far from random.
04 Jun 20 UTC I noticed that with the 1v1 tournament. I've only had to swap countries in like 2 games total over the entire thing so far.
04 Jun 20 UTC Correct. My understanding is they overweight countries you’ve drawn less and underweight those you drew more

So like, you drew France in 02, 09, 14; and Austria in 06, 13,17. So broadly spaced out around as much as you’d expect if they tried to balance it plus a good size dollop of RNG
04 Jun 20 UTC GG
04 Jun 20 UTC I do want to say, as much as I moan about being in too many games at once - I have enjoyed playing all these with y'all :D
04 Jun 20 UTC meme, for the 1v1 tournament, you do need to randomize countries for tiebreakers with a dice or something
04 Jun 20 UTC Aye, have been doing that
04 Jun 20 UTC nice!
04 Jun 20 UTC But there's only been the two that needed it (MM vs TOAO game 5, and the Group B tiebreak) and they both landed on the countries that had already been drawn :D

The bit that was interesting to me is that the normal sets almost always turn out correctly from the RNG. If someone draws France in game 1, they've drawn Austria in game 2 in almost every set.
04 Jun 20 UTC (Happens so often that the first time it went wrong, I missed that they'd got the same countries both times until after S01 so we had to reset the games)
04 Jun 20 UTC I'm gonna see if I can find the actual algorithm and untangle it, but to me it seems like its completely broken.
04 Jun 20 UTC I thought about a 2WD with Germany but with how these have gone I was worried like Italy might throw Or something lol
