Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

I think when we have another one, I'll probably be significantly more aggressive about cutting off a big chunk of players to designate as subs. The ones I had lined up pre-tournament mostly disappeared, which has led to me playing catch-up on the disappearances a bit, and the ensuing lengthy pauses....

Re: Artificial intelligence in 1v1 diplomacy

Is important to remember that Google has gigantic pieces of specialized hardest to put behind AlphaGo. That 4 hour number isn't really meaningful unless someone here wants to shell out a big chunk of change for TPU time. I don't think a 1v1 AI would need to be nearly as sophisticated though.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

It's important to remember that some people take that time to ensure they'll be around for the next phase that actually does matter. I know that's not always the case, and I encourage everyone to ready when able, but I'm not going to enforce shorter deadlines than what people signed up for.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Ghuggles has returned from the dead and will be doing some cleanup tomorrow (including subbing in the ready subs who haven't been put in yet).

Relatedly, I likely need even more subs. Hit me up.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Substitutions are pending for the two currently missing players. The game in question is unfortunate in that a new player disappeared shortly before the old one was replaced, but the spot will be filled in short order. Relatedly, I will be out of town Wednesdayy through Sunday. Please direct pause r...

Re: Why are Some User's Points in Play Negative?

It's a bug related to the handling of eliminations in anonymous games. I don't remember the exact behavior, but that's the gist of it.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Still looking for people (not already in the tournament) who are interested in subbing. I can offer points and cookies as incentives, though no promises on the quality of the latter.

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

I've set up over a dozen 1v1 matches for the Showdown and have yet to need to switch someone. This, friends, is called the gambler's fallacy. Statistically, 50% of the match-ups will need one game to be switched. Assuming country selection is completely random. That's only 25% of the games, if you'...

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

If you find that both you and your opponent have created games, it should go without saying that you should pick one set to play and let the other die.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Your TD is suffering from a bout of fuckcomcast, and is thus occasionally skipping messages. Apologies. Those are mostly games in need of replacements, and they should be getting back up to speed this week. On a related note, if you're interested in subbing, shoot me a message. I'll love you forever...
