Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

So I finally got around to playing my first game, which was a rousing success. Overall, it was an interesting experience, but there are definitely some odd choices by the AI. Such as Italy choosing the same moveset to attack Austria for 9 turns in a row, Turkey attacking Russia while losing Greece t...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Shouldn't that game have not been drawn based on the AI rules? Yes it should not have drawn. We obviously are having issues with certain cases where the bots aren't voting how we want them to. I'll reset their obedience levels to 100%... Currently it's only the top bot that's checked. In this game ...

I'll be out then. Modern sounded fun, but I don't want to do just a regular game.

Re: School of War Summer 2019

Well, that was some year. Enough time has lapsed that I'll elaborate a little on my comments from last year. I thought for sure that the French build in Brest was on purpose and the global press a ruse. If I'm France and see a Germany cozy with Russia and no England to oppose Russia in the north, I'...

Re: School of War Summer 2019

I have my own theory on the French builds, but I'll refrain from elaborating until after the spring moves. I don't want to give anything away. Question for the professors - why didn't Germany hit Sweden in the fall? If your hypothesis is correct that Germany is the mastermind of the moves in the Wes...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Wait, teccles almost outscored me with a single draw, when I had two - one of them a board lead? What a wonky scoring system, man. 6 SC's shouldn't make that big a difference. Either way, I announced it in my games but I'll do it again here - I won't be continuing on with the tournament. I'm a sub, ...

Re: If you had 100% control over this forum would you silence Flum for spamming?

This is the most active the forum has been in like five years. I see like ten threads that are active.

I'd give the man a medal. And then revert the forum to its state circa 2011.

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

I have a second thought.

Don't do GvI because it's not balanced.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

It's anon and you're not supposed to talk about who you are in future games so there shouldn't be collusion like this
That's never stopped anyone in any tournament from breaking identities. Or at least having solid guesses.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

Well teccles, the benefits of German cooperation would've been one less SC for you or Turkey in autumn 1909. A no build Turkey would've been massive. As for France, i was trying to get him to force disband Gascony in spring 1910. Either by taking it himself or supporting me there (I forget which). W...

Hey teccles thanks for the commentary. I can assure you that most people play SoS like they're supposed to, but I'm just an old curmudgeon who can't shake a habit haha. And those little lies you had to do made all the difference in getting you where you ended up. The only thing I'll say is that it's...

Congrats xorxes on the win! And to MM for putting up a hell of a finale fight to watch! Really though, slugging it through the lower brackets is tough work so I want to give extra props to MM here. Also I'd like to thank CptMike, and all the rest who kinda took over setting up the games and informin...

For me the most important thing here is that we can now accept almost anyone as a TD. Before we preferred (ex-)mods, but now we can be more liberal.
Wait, am I out of a job now?
