Re: Surrendering

Which is a recipe for making bad bots, because what people do is throw the game. All you'll get from that is bad data.

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

I went back through my bot games and I've won twice as Austria. Both times coming on the back of an Italian Lepanto.

Re: Can we get a Concede button for bot-only games?

Well, maybe if I hadn't played literally five times as many games as you i'd feel like wasting my time watching bots run the board after a stupid bot has decided to suicide into me. (seriously, why does the bot love to do this?) It's a waste of my time and puts me in a bad mood to have to creatively...

Re: Can we get a Concede button for bot-only games?

This. Suuuuuper annoying

And yes, training bots afainst people intentionally losing centers is a bad plan

However, kudos for generally excellent bots. Ive played against bots in many games, and they are generally terrible (looking at you, Civ), but these are really good

Re: Winning as Austria against bots?

Ironically, I just discovered the bots and working my way through the powers to win with each. I just started with Austria, but this last game, I was attacked by Italy, Russia, Turkey AND GERMANY! in Spring 1901. In fact, the thing that saved my bacon was that Germany and Italy were fighting each ot...

Re: Unexpected draw in Bot game

Did you miss the deadline? I think the bot orders maybe are calculated after you enter orders, so if you miss the deadline, then so does everyone else?

Re: User names changing

We allow plenty of people to change their usernames. But only when their username exposes their real name. And for obvious reasons, no we will not give a list of those people. The other option is to win Zultar's special prize on the 12 days of giveaways (durga). Thanks for clarifying. I was beginni...

Re: Is spanking an acceptable form of discipline?

The book "The Coddling of the American Mind" is a book I recommend. You can definitely witness the damage done as more and more Millenials go out to the workforce and are entitled whiny losers. (#notallMillenials) I wonder if they were spanked growing up? Kind of hard to get past their coddling of ...

Re: Is spanking an acceptable form of discipline?

Growing up my bottom would get wailed on whenever I made a scene but looking back, I wonder if that technically counts as abuse? I turned out okay so maybe it worked (It didn't even really hurt, I just pretended it did so they wouldn't spank as long) But maybe I should be angry about this in hindsi...

Re: Djokovic took 15th grand slam

Theim is Austrian, not Australian. Don't worry Kakarroto, it's a common mistake, although Trumptoad made it as well, so I'm not sure that being in his company is anything to be happy with. Aren't they the same thing? I mean isn't that why we keep seeing pictures of giant burning forests high in the...

"Their"? Is he a hive mind or something?

In English, it's common usage to use their when you don' t know the gender of the person spoken about.
