Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

The invites will start coming out on Monday. Officially, sign ups will close and the tournaments will have begun by September 20, but if you sign up earlier, you’ll have more time to play your round 1 games. The brief layover between yesterday and Monday is to allow people to play some bot games on ...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

There is substantial variability in each bot game and the bots make strategic decisions in each game independently of others. While they will do some things more often than others and while it is probably possible to game them to some degree, making the same moves that led you to a solo once over an...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

KestasBot does not know the difference between Skynet, Jane, or you. All it knows is that it wants to win. Same goes for the other bots.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

This is pretty amazing. I can only imagine the effort behind the scenes to make it happen There's six figures worth of work that has gone into this. Maybe more. This is not a joking estimate either. The developmental cost of this if the site had been required to hire a development team for this pro...

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

I believe I fixed that bug; it's just a matter of safely merging the code over. Hopefully it is corrected soon.

Nothing, other than the fact that they're free and often fantastic positions that you can ride to an easy draw/solo.

webdip dark mode has turned me to the dark side. Now I wanna do all kinds of evil things like vote democrat, and oppose the 2nd amendment, and bring back dippin dots.
I definitely did not query our server to wire 50% of all donations made by users on dark mode to the Clinton Foundation.

Re: Auto-disbanding retreating units

Looks like it's a long-standing issue (just for context) https://github.com/kestasjk/webDiplomacy/issues/194 As is so clearly and eloquently delineated here, "this is a major adjudication change which would require extensive testing." It may be something that we can look at when we are finished wit...

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

Yeah, we’re working on narrowing that down. I think I have a good idea of what is going on but fixing it will be tough. Any pattern regardless of how insignificant it seems (browser, device, how you’re navigating the site, etc) could be useful.

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

The icons on the forum are gif files and outside of the realm of things I know how to change, so I don't know that they can be changed. Emc's changes to the forum icons will be live soon, but I do not believe that the new icons will be very different from the old ones. They'll be much cleaner in dar...

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

Russia was the bane of my existence throughout this redesign, so it's gonna stay as is unless you have a specific hex code in mind. Brightening it further makes it very similar to England, and changing England is impractical for a number of reasons.

The fact that 11 days late seems like a long time means we're doing better than we used to, right?
