Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

@smart people: were the bots trained using a lot of games from the site generally or were they focused on specific users / games? I have a hunch that the bots' behavior loosely represents the historical webDiplomacy metagame up until the end of their training. Their behavior might reflect general tr...

Re: People that set multiple alarm clocks

I set 4-5 that are spaced out 15 minutes apart starting an hour before I actually need to be up, because I know myself enough to know I'm not getting up on time. Ironically I post this having woken up a full 6 hours early today. Also, I live alone, and would never subject someone else to this brand ...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

AI Austria is faithful to a fault to human Italian players that don't attack it right off the bat. I've run nearly the exact same strategy with Italy now, where I execute a slightly delayed Lepanto and show friendship to Jane while it gets entrenched with AI Russia and AI Turkey. Austria rewards thi...

Well, probably because they come across like assholes on dating apps.

Re: The Anti-France Meta

I'm loathe to even say it because I fear the potential of future exploitation, but I virtually never cover Brest. I don't think most English players have the balls to go for Brest if a unit is around to defend it. The safer play is to move to MAO if you want to advance against France, since outside ...

Re: Tinder

I assumed most girls who instantly want you to add them on insta or Snapchat just want a higher follower count. I don’t even use those. Insta is basically Facebook but more pictures right? also been hit with this a decent number of times. I'm sure there's some real reasons for wanting to switch ove...

Re: Tinder

I don't see what's wrong with adding them on Snap or Insta that's way more likely to continue the conversation. Why would you unnecessarily jump through an extra hoop to talk to somebody who is supposedly already interested in you? 9/10 I won't meet a guy off tinder unless I have his insta or somet...

Re: The Anti-France Meta

I hosted two gunboat round robin sets of games among thirteen top-100 GR players (one duplicate). The first seven sets completed recently. Claesar was kind enough to compile some relevant data in a Google spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MElmHp7c-b3kjaXxNzgjVpDB1NsmnEdIsqP3ZLej0A...

How does a globetrotter like you not have a GoPro? I thought that was up there with a backpack capable of chilling Franzia as essential travel items.

Re: Should Italy open west more?

France can certainly be your first major opening push of the game, but it's critical that you don't just throw yourself at France before anyone else has. France is very frequently attacked early by England and/or Germany in this metagame, and even when France gets the choice of who to fight, Italy i...

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

You say you rail against tribalism and heated rhetoric...but then in the same message you effectively say "those that I disagree with are going to lead us to totalitarianism!!!". You don't see the cognitive dissonance there? It is hard for me to not be desensitized to this style of rhetoric when pr...
