Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I wanted to clarify that neither version of the bots is passive. The new version does take more chances and would vary its moves more, so in some ways, that may appear more aggressive, but the original version is not really passive. Although all this may just be semantic. :) What does it matter when...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Another update! :-D Hi all, We are pleased to announce that Philip has retrained the 1v1 bots and now they are doing much better. They have substantially improved their playing ability. Although we should really pace ourselves and spread out the development so we can regularly get more +1s. ;) Thank...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Well, actually the second bot does have some idea of backstabbing. There's a fair chance that it would backstab its "allies" where that probability is next to zero for the first version. And yeah, for many instances, it doesn't do as well as some of top players, but for the majority of our users, th...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Update: please read!!! Hi all, After getting the feedback from many of you and further testing on our end, Philip and I talked and he has worked some more of his voodoo magic. There are now two different versions of the bots. One version is the original bot that you have been playing with for the la...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

One thing I want to note is that in classic gunboat games, there is a fair distribution of openings the bots will use and I would play several games against the bots with multiple countries before coming to conclusion about how good or mediocre the bots are. As I have tested several dozen games, the...

Re: Borderlands 3 poor reviews

Borderlands is best played with others, especially couch co-op. My wife and I are terrible at shoot'em up games but we've played all the Borderlands games together. I would wait until the game is on sale though.

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

Hi all, I wanted to remind folks that you can always appeal to me if you think you need to appeal over the admins' decisions. I've been made aware of the situation and I've talked with the mod team. In this case, I don't think it's fair to say that captainmeme snuck in the points clause. We, the mod...

Re: FREE ALEX NOGGLE

I'm beginning to get very irritated with this. If I wasn't clear about this before, let me be clear now. If any of you from this school posts on the forum about this anymore, I will direct the mods to ban your entire school group and contact your teachers and administrators. As a former teacher, I k...
