BOT Making Error Writing Orders?

At the end of a long BOT game, one of the BOTs wrote a "support hold" order for one of its own units that was moving in an attack on one of my centers (that moved failed). It also ordered another one its units to support the moving unit to move. Either the "support hold" or the "move" order was an e...

BOTs

Heaven help me. I'm starting to think like a BOT. It seems I've done well in my last two BOT games. How did that happen? The data did not compute.

Re: What Do Dip Players Do in Real Life?

Are you able to keep a couple of buddies from getting together and agreeing to join the same "anonymous" game? They could then exchange information on the side.

Game Search

Maps

The arrows on the maps get messy. Recommend renaming the maps with the arrows as "adjudication maps" and then have the "refresh maps" show a clean board with the current unit locations (after all retreats and builds are completed). Thanks for your consideration.
