I used to be a good FvA player, but have become rather lousy. The bot's good, but not nearly unbeatable.

Re: Electoral College predictions (among others)

Oh didn't know we were doing predictions here. Here's my prediction that I made for various RL bets with friends on the 30th: https://imgur.com/a/5oLqx5J Looking pretty good though I should have swapped NC and GA in hindsight (though no way I make that call before the election) Could end up being r...

Re: Electoral College predictions (among others)

Biden 270, Trump 268. Biden flips WI, MI, AZ and Nebraska’s Omaha district for the win. Trump holds on to PA and everything else, making everyone think he’s won until AZ breaks late. AZ doesn’t declare for weeks. This is going to be the closest prediction. Pennsylvania will be close, but Biden appe...

Re: Election Night Thread

I think Georgia ends up going for Biden late tonight off the back of Atlanta. They still have over half a million ballots left to count in the Atlanta area, and the voting there so far is something like 70/30 Biden (napkin math averages of different county-by-county results). Trump has a sizable le...

Looking forward to that electoral college tie..

Or maybe ranked choice voting in Maine will seal the deal.
Ranked choice doesn't apply to potus votes.

California will swing the popular vote back to Biden. It clearly won't be +10 at this point
Oh, definitely. It's just there's no way Biden is up by as much as the polls said if Trump is currently +7 in Ohio. Trump has a shot.

This doesn't look like Biden +10 like the polls said. This is close.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

There's a thing about the ranking in HoF where I believe it glitches out when you have less than 100 GR? For example, this is what it currently says for me; You are ranked #25233 out of 25232 players with an overall GR of over 100. I wonder if this relates to how my HoF ranking says I’m one less th...

Re: Electoral College predictions (among others)

Place your bets! I'm going bold with my predictions... Biden: 380 - Trump: 158 Biden carries the swing states of Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, and two *surprise* states - Texas (early vote totals larger than the total number of votes cast in 2016 election), and Georgia. Trump holds o...

Re: Vote wait times (comparison)

In Sweden, anyone who votes early can change their vote until election day. I know that's not in place in the US, but it's possible. And it makes your argument void. If a shorter voting period means that fewer people vote, then that's the less good system. That's much more important than some idea ...

Re: Trump tests positive to covid

I would hope all who oppose him want a swift and full recovery out of both a sense of human decency and a desire to beat him on the merits.
