Re: Open European Championship 2019

At the rate we're currently receiving applications, we might actually be full! We have a hard limit of 6 boards, so we might be forced to decline people :-( I'll talk to the venue next week whether we can squeeze in a 7th board if necessary. We now have enough players for 4 boards, but not all are f...

Re: Game Theory Games

Super interesting! I was afraid I was perhaps being too conservative, but it turns out I wasn't and the majority made smart choices. Well done.

Thanks for running these! Hopefully they can continue (soon).

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

I wonder if it's worth it to replay if my initial result is 2 solos and 1 defeat... Do you recon my 2 solos and a 0SC survive put me above you in the ranking? Initial tiebreakers will be the number of solos per round, and secondary tiebreakers will be your most recent overall GR. I'm going to assum...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I am really not sure what to do this phase. I think Thieving makes sense when you're behind. Low risk, easy to find a mate that won't stab you, big point swing and it even gains as much as a Mob with 3. Last game there were 0 bodyguards. It's just too hard to predict, not worth it over Thieving and...

If there are any details like that I need to know, please send me a PM.

To those asking for clarification, you can reply games you finished prior to this update if you choose. You cannot reply games that were not finished prior to this update.
That's odd, as they were played with the old bots.

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I'm chickening out of this phase.

##Create Solitary

I think a lot of Friendships will be betrayed this round. Let's see who's the best liar.

If anyone Friends me, I'll gift them one point.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I've been enjoying the AI's, its nice to try new strategies with no risk. However, things like this makes me question their intentions. https://i.imgur.com/I0CCUZ5.png Why? That'a solid moveset. I think he's talking about the move to MAO, which had pretty much no hope of succeeding. Although if it ...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I'll pay 1 point to everyone who successfully guards me! To be clear, this means: At least two players target me for a Theft, and at least two players Guard me. Each of the Guards receives a point. ##CallGM: Did you notice the point I gifted to Chaqa? It was public, so it happened instantly, right?...

Maybe i didn't read with enough attention but... what do you mean by hijacking a coalition? How is it done, and what happens?
That's a copy-paste error; there's no hijacking this round. Just theft.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Or lower :D :D But i'm not sure your estimate is correct. Assuming a 50% average solo rate most of the players should have 1 or 2 solos, with a few having 0 or 3. Since we have (at least) 80 players a normal distribution would mean about 40 of them will be in the 2-to-3 range. So the 3-soloers will...

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

I'm with McBob in this war. Claesar got caught in multiple lies that round. First he said his coalition was a Cult. Then he said it was full with 3 when SignalsEngineer hadn't joined. McBob and Jamie could have joined my coalition and stuck Cleasar with 0 points. But obviously none of us knew that....

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

I think the average player will have a 50% solo rate in these games. That means the expected value is 10 players will have 3 solos, and another 10 have 2 solos only. That's exactly 20 added together, so unless the field significantly increases, 2 solos should do it. Unless the solo rate of the avera...

Your problem. I have friends. (Right guys? :neutral:)
Your friends can't save you. My new goal is to ruin your game. Whenever you make a Gamble Coalition, I might be in it without a word.

You disrespect me like this, I strike back. WAR.

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

If it had been a gamble or double gamble I'd screwed over, I'd be reacting differently. As it is, everybody still got points. I couldn't join Squigs, and joining tr would give me no points. I have support from Squigs and Jamie, who both would have got more points if I'd joined Squigs. You're just w...

Feel free to join Tr. Or Squigs. Mine's already full, with 3.
I communicated very clearly. I'll give you one last chance to reconsider. You're obviously in the wrong.

Re: Coalition II: The Shifting Alliances

Bob, you also owe Chaqa a compensation. You messed up his score. He deserved 9 points here.
