Playing as Austria, Fairbot has won his last 34 games.
Two wins to end that streak:

Every so often, it gets stuck. It can be a few hours; maybe someone has to restart a process. Sorry! I think that's part of the trade-off of having a cool "research" bot.

I blame DNS. If something online goes wrong, it saves time if you just blame DNS right away.

So, MerryBBuck just beat the Austrian bot again. Not shocking...
https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?game ... #gamePanel

... but before this game, Fairbot had not lost a single game in his last 61 games as Austria, and, as Austria, has lost only four times in his last 115 games - to MerryBBuck twice, and to dipperjay and 90kicvesb once each.

Congrats, Merry, and congrats to dipperjay and 90kicvesb also.

@RoganJosh
Fairbot can play Austria in FvA, yes ?

Only 3 wins against Fairbot in the bot's last 100 games as Austria. The other two being by MerryBBuck and dipperjay.

Yes, it knows how to play Austria. It did few really nice rushes.

I played these as live games, and without a proper sandbox. When the bot played France, that was still good enough to win. But the bot is much better as Austria. Maybe I should have stopped playing the southern opening.. how many tries before I won? I don't remember. But, gees, for a while there it felt like I got all the guesses wrong.

By far the most bizarre game I played against Fairbot so far:

https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=347130

An 18-11 rout, a French army in Vienna in 1902 and a bot support order for that same army in Fall 1903. And many more very poor choices.

Just wondering whether this is the quickest game, anyone else beat Fb by 1906?

Not sure what it drank or smoked, but this was madness. But hey, it counts :)

So after 45 or so games without Fairbot (as Austria) losing a single game, we have two more wins:

First, a nice win by Randaz20:

And then a really unusual and impressive win by bigchungus69 !
