Bots and people game

I'd like to play a game with a mixture of bots and people. That game is https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=249480. I'm looking for two human players - we'll then leave it to start in 1 day's time with 4 bots. PM me for the password, first come first served. 1 day phases, HDV, unranked, anon (...

Re: Game Theory Games

Thanks Squigs for running these!

I had initially been planning to go maximally conservative, with one big bet; but both Ankara and Ukraine seemed to have plenty of momentum. I'm a little bit surprised at how well most these riots were coordinated.

Perhaps there could be a concede option in 1-human games?

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Having played a few games with bots today, I'm regretting my country selection. Is it possible to update it?

Re: Ashes Test Cricket

The logic is that a batsman is more likely to get out in the first part of their innings than later, because they get used to the bowling/conditions/something. I'm pretty sure that's true from patterns of scoring. So if you send Root in, he has to get used to the conditions twice - once at night and...

Hello! What are you thinking on Ukraine and Ankara? Those are the riots mentioned in the thread, and I've been hearing positive noises about each of them. Any other exciting destinations you're looking at right now?

In, and accepting PMs. Particularly on the subject of Ankara, which is ripe for revolution.

Re: Ashes Test Cricket

What an extraordinary finish. An amazing innings from Ben Stokes, playing carefully when the situation called for it before accelerating magnificently to hit 76 runs off 45 balls while Jack Leach played defensively from the other end.

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

Thanks for dark mode, it's great! Occasionally, I get a page rendered in light mode instead (which goes dark when I refresh it). For example, it just happened when I followed a link from the forum to a game. There's no obvious pattern to it, so it could be a nightmare to debug, but I thought I'd men...

Re: Excused Missed Turns is inefficient ?

I mean I'm not quite sure why everyone ignored my post stating we're working on a change to make the max delay possible for a missed turn 24 hours, and a longer term change that will remove delays entirely without allowing NMR's as a game creation option. If it's just fun complaining and ignoring t...

Why, thank you! And by chance (or more sinister forces) the rumours are true... I do live within 100 miles of Beccles, which isn't bad going with the whole globe to aim at.

Here's my crack at this; it has simulations and stuff! TL;DR - 47.2 I assumed that: The players are assigned randomly to games. Each game has a random result, drawn from the (finished) results of the first round, except that I reduced the probability of solos to 1 in 6, because my understanding is t...

Re: On Southerlyness of Moscow and Warsaw

I think the point is more general than these two centres. Of the border territories in the main stalemate line, many can be held just fine from either side. Moscow and Warsaw can be held from the North, with or without Sevastapol; Munich and Berlin can be held from the South (together or separately)...
