Do the points the bots have indicate how good they are?
We should look at their GR next month to see how good they are.
Bot games should be excluded from GR if I remember correctly, and that should include the bot accounts as well.

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.

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.

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