Re: 49 games against bots results

I've been keeping a spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gfIraEmmONofeeI0scnzycsxokDLlrEK-rat572-S-I/edit?usp=sharing) and I update it as I go. One of the things that I started doing (but haven't backfilled all of them yet) is making a link to each game so I can find them faster if ...

Re: 49 games against bots results

This search should give you what you need. Thanks that worked and in my case returned over 200 results but not in a very useful format. So for example if I want to know how many times I played turkey and how many of those I won I would have to go through all the results manually. I hope this does n...

Re: 49 games against bots results

Even 49 games is a small sample statistically speaking so could be just a fluke.

I've played a lot more bot games previously but I can't find any way to access them via search? This is one of the reasons I did this to try to get some context.

49 games against bots results

I just finished playing each country 7 times against bots. The results are not by any means a scientific analysis but are presented for general interest. The columns are respectively... S=Survived, E=Eliminated, W=Win and D=Draw. Interestingly one Bot managed to solo in one of the games. S E W D Eng...

Re: Unpause Your Games

Maybe the mods could unpause the anonymous gunboat games where some folk don't seem to be getting the message?

Re: Convoy conundrum...

I object to the initial poster objecting to the hijacking of his thread. Sorry if I gave the impression I was objecting to anything lol. I wasn't being facetious, I did find the whole discussion interesting. I know you said this tongue in cheek but I was merely wanting to make the point that puttin...

Re: Convoy conundrum...

Thanks everyone for contributing...

Discussions regards paradox were interesting but in this instance I was only interested in how the webdiplomacy online judge would resolve it.

Seems the convoy would fail and the army not move..!

Thanks again to everyone. :-)

Re: Convoy conundrum...

Your answer caused me to look up the DATC where I found the following extract from test case 6.F.14. "This situation depends on how paradoxes are handled (see issue (4.A.2). In case of the 'All Hold' rule (fully applied, not just as "backup" rule), both the movement of the English fleet in Wales as ...

Convoy conundrum...

Hope the following makes sense.

A Bel attack F Edi via convoy Nth sea
F Norw sea sup A Bel to Edi
F Lon attack F Nth sea
F Edi sup F Lon to Nth sea

So F Edi is supporting an attack on the fleet that is convoying an attack on itself..!

Does the convoyed attack succeed?

Fill with bots?

I see some games are set up to use the fill with bots option.
I'm wondering if this still works once the game has started and someone drops out, (civil disorder). Will the player be automatically replaced by a bot?

Need help with mechanics of webDiplomacy

Since recently joining webDiplomacy I have played a lot of gunboat games against bots. So took the plunge and joined a 5 minute live gunboat game. It seems the mechanics of live games are somewhat different to when playing against bots. I got confused and although I was sure I had entered orders it ...

Looking for Diplomacy API

Is there such a thing as an application or online API for Diplomacy.
for example accepts orders as text and returns results.
Am thinking of writing a UI in python.
Thanks
