On second thought, this may not apply to BB.

Re: Tibet bans Guns

We understand that Tibet has been brutally enslaved by the Chinese communist government, don't we? They are doing the same to the Muslims now in Xinjiang.

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

There's no doubt that the bot's play as Austria was improved several times. At the time of gameIDs in the 333378-334651 range, the bot lost 23 of 98 games as Austria. We humans were doing pretty well. There must have been an improvement at this point. Subsequently, there was a period of very few los...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

So, MerryBBuck just beat the Austrian bot again. Not shocking... https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=345848#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 tw...

@Merry. That's too bad. In my game (above), the bot hung up a couple of times, but eventually restarted in each case. Wierd.

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Can someone confirm that bots will automatically DRAW the game if the live player votes DRAW ? I just started a game and voted DRAW immediately, and the game immediately ended in a Draw.
