Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Considering this was the first FvA game I ever finished, I'd say it isn't too bad: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=332417. In my first game I made some clerical errors (working with one eye at the moment) and just conceded rather than play it out. The bot has a really difficult time if you ...

Why do tournaments need to be approved by moderators?

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

After hearing the story, I asked three others way too busy to play much these days two simple questions: Did JMO cheat? (All 3 yes). Are members that reported this cheating barred from the tournament by demand of JMO? (All 3 yes). That’s it. I’m all for volunteer developers improving upon the site, ...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Several players have reached out to me about why I should not compete in the WebDiplomacy World Cup because of the cheating that happened in the last two while I was away. After corroborating their story with someone I believe to be impartial that holds even less impatience for drama than I do, I ha...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

So all we need is someone to join the team that then immediately drops out allowing us to tap the player you’ve designated as “sub only”?

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

We want Computer_Genius on our team, and not as a substitute. Reliability Rating is a crap stat, certainly not worth using to block entry into a team-based tournament. It’s disadvantageous to new players and live players and players that experiment amongst friends and with new maps. I have over 4x a...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

What's the RR requirement to join? I mean I have a base RR of 99 and because I missed like 5 or 6 turns a few months ago its 69% Nice. This is also a concern for us as one of our players is in the same boat. We can of course artificially boost the RR before the WC matches start, but need to know th...

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Team Toronto is as follows: Yonni - Full Press Computer_Genius - Full Press Lando Calrissian - Gunboat Geofram - Public Press We've yet to name a substitute nor have we determined how we'll be splitting up the six FvA games. We plan on hosting a little round robin warmup before making that decision....

Toronto here, though for the time being also Virginia!

Would prefer to be the Public Press teammate.

Re: The Next webDip Tournament?

If there's enough interest in a revival of the gunboat tournament, I'll do another. It's been 7 years but all the seeding code should still work. Gonna be a little more difficult now that I'm not a mod, but I doubt we'll have 70+ people signup either.

Hello My Old Friends (And Enemies)

I cannot believe there's a BBcode forum on this site now. I almost miss the old style, but then again, hell no I don't. I would very much like to play some games, of particular interest to me are LIVE Gunboat games (or another Gunboat Tournament if someone else didn't take over that), but I would al...
