Re: Germany moving from baltic - hel

This is not correct; Baltic Sea and Heligoland Bight are not adjacent.

Re: Could we add bots to variant maps?

It would be interesting for the development team to train bots on randomly generated maps, so that they can perform on any variant, current and future. But of course, if you train them on data from human games, then that is not possible.

Re: Three-Player Variant?

In my opinion, Verdun is the best 3-player variant. https://vdiplomacy.net/variants.php?variantID=58

Re: First time playing a griefer in this game.

You are talking about this game?

If you are the one starting to call France an 'ass', then I don't see how Frances behavior would somehow be worse than yours.

Forum link directs to hpp instead of https

The 'Home' link on the forum (indicated by the red rectangle and red arrow in the picture in the link) redirects to http://webdiplomacy.net/ instead of https://webdiplomacy.net/. The main 'Home' link (indicated by the yellow rectangle) redirects correctly.

Re: You've Never Used Turkey's Best Opening

I disagree, Octavious. I would agree that ideally, you find an ally in Spring 1901 who you trust and who trusts you in turn, and together you work out the optimal moveset for the both of you. If you fully trust Russia, you can move Ank - Con. If you fully trust Austria, you can move Smy - Arm. If yo...

Re: You've Never Used Turkey's Best Opening

I find myself in agreement with this article, but not with the title. ;) I have used this opening in the same circumstances swordsman recommends it. So far I have both followed it up with an attack against Russia and with a Juggernaut that DMZs the Black Sea. If this article changes the meta in favo...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

How might you have botched it? If you cover Tunis, support yourself to Bulgaria, tap Con with Ank and tap Smy with Eastern Med, your solo is guaranteed.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

I care about the distinction between live press and live gunboat games. They are very distinct. When I look at my own past games: LIVE PRESS (14 games) Won: 43% Drawn: 57% Lost: 0% LIVE GUNBOAT (12 games) Won: 0% Drawn: 50% Lost: 50% Games are harder when you cannot nicely ask your neighbours not to...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Squigs, thanks for the link. The different categories under 'Game Stats' are clear. For example, under the category 'Classic Press' you see all Classic press games. Easy. If it can be done for the categories under 'Game stats', why not for 'Ranking info'? Obviously you don't need to specify that you...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Great job! Awesome to have ratings integrated in the site! Two suggestions/bug reports: 1. The name of a Ghost Rating category is not always correct. For example, the category 'Ghost Rating Full Press' only covers Full Press games on the classic map that are non-live instead of all full press games ...

Re: Ghana is hella good in World Dip IX gunboat, right?

Vdip has the ability for you to just see variant's stats really easily, and Ghana is still performing the best. https://vdiplomacy.net/stats.php?variantID=129 Like pyxxy said, only five games have been played on World Dip X so far. The only reason Ghana has the best stats is because it achieved the...

Re: Ghana is hella good in World Dip IX gunboat, right?

I did some stats on World Dip IX in the past. I believe Ghana is indeed statistically the best power, not only in gunboat but also in press. Kenya, Western-Canada and Quebec are very strong powers too. I think the main reason for the dominance of Ghana and Kenya is because of the following. There ar...

If you play chess against someone with a higher rating than you, you may aim for a draw and people will think you did well if you succeed in that goal.

Re: Homepage improvement...

Looks good. If the point is to tease new players, you could show a random game on the right if the player currently is not in a game.
