Bot game stalled

#1 Post by diplomat61 » Sat Sep 28, 2019 1:31 pm

My bot game http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=248712 seems to have stalled.

I missed the last deadline causing a missed turn early this morning (sorry bots).

The next deadline shows as 12 hours (?). I have readied my orders but the game is not progressing instantly. I have tried refreshing.

Is this standard behaviour if one messes with the bots?

It looks as if the bots have only saved their orders instead of readied them. I suspect this is intentional after a missed turn, but I will have to talk with some smarter people to be sure and then we'll let you know.

Yeah, orders are unreadied after a missed turn and the bots don’t know to reready their orders after a missed phase. It will process again when the deadline comes and you can continue.

Bots are not entering orders at: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=249683

(Maybe they're just pissed that it's 1951...)

Yeah, a safeguard was put in place to prevent bots from entering orders if it got to that point, in case the draw logic didn't work, and bots entered an infinite stalemate.

Looks like you're having fun in this game though.

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.

It's not about fun. It's about winning.

I guess "34 centers in under 50 years" is a reasonable challenge, though...

Yeah, that's going to have to be a draw.

Nooo... I was having so much fun figuring out how the bot plays the position and searching for exploits. :cry:

Is there any way of setting up a new game in the same position? E.g. using some throwaway human accounts, and then replacing Germany and England with bots?

If you get admin approval, I could help you do that once or twice. If we can sub in bots. Don't know if we can.

As you know, creating a second account yourself isn't allowed.

Oh crap, I need to delete the "brainbomb" troll account I made then.
