Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

My general hope is to have some time over the holidays to fix some minor things like the bot games appearing in the GR query at all.

Muting in Game

We've had some reports of problems with muting, specifically for people on phones. Currently the mute feature is designed weirdly where toggling the mute is part of the URL (not sure why this was done). Phone browsers refresh themselves if left alone for a while. So if you unmute someone and then go...

Re: Leaving this site for good.

Hey Captain Tomorrow,

Sorry to see you go. I'm not actually sure which rule change you're talking about though I suspect it's the reliability rating. I would love to get an email from you explaining what specific change is causing you to leave. Regardless, best of luck in life.

Regards,
WebDip Dev

Re: Any theory as to why the AI behaved this way in this game?

The bots are taught via machine learning, which essentially means this question can't be answered. Best off the cuff guess, it learned from humans that France holding EC is considered aggressive against England.

Re: Moderator Team Announcement

A couple of clarity points. I like Magnetic, I think they're a decent human, and hope them luck in life. But that's not something we can consider in this instance. Because everyone who represents the site is taking on a trust that we've earned from all of you to keep your games fair and free from ch...

Moderator Team Announcement

Magnetic24 has been removed from the moderator team and permanently banned from webDiplomacy for abuse of his moderator powers by excusing his own NMRs, removing his own temporary bans, and recalculating his RR to preserve his rating. We apologize for not catching this sooner but would like to reite...

The bot's not talking will not be a problem since per my message it's just no messaging games.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

When you're on the game create page and you select No Messaging and Classic a new checkbox appears under the messaging dropdown called "Fill Empty Spots with Bots:" and if checked will start a game at the normal start time even if it does not get filled. If there aren't at least 2 humans in the game...

Please still express your interest here, but be aware we will need everyone participating to use the tournament tool ...

Re: "Finished date"

The finished date is whatever the next process time for the game was when it ended. So if it's a 10 day phase and it ended 3 days into it, the finished date will be 7 days in the future

And when one is unable to rule out any possibilities, the most likely answer is the conspiracy theory of the mods wanting a specific player to win...who's Trumpesque now?

Oh huh, MadMarx calling members of the moderator team liars, comparing them to various world leaders you dislike, and not emailing concerns to the mod email because trying to work up the member base instead of getting concerns addressed is just so much more fun. What a surprise. I'm sure we'll be he...

You can either draw that, or I'll have to cancel it. Let me know which you prefer, we can't have the bots missing turns and taking RR hits though. Sorry.

Site Down Time

What happened? When the site went down from too much traffic the other day some people left bot games they'd started which was never supposed to be possible because they start right away. Then someone else took over, and they didn't have the same country choice, so the games died a horrible death. W...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I would guess that units sneaking behind the front lines is fairly uncommon in human games. The bot probably doesn't have enough examples of that behaviour to properly evaluate the danger. It's a limitation of the training method, if you bring the bot outside of what it has seen, you never know how...
