Re: private w/ friends + bots

Make sure a human player takes Italy ... the programmers didn't program Italy properly and the bots aren't learning from real games unfortunately.....

Re: Can we have a "Concede" option i9n bot games please.

One trick that works when playing Austria --- as developers haven't fixed the unrealistic number of times Italy hits Austria to open (so so strange!!) ,,, is to immediately "vote draw" as Austria when attacked by austria in move 1 the game always draws... and don't have to play out the game as austr...

Re: Bot openings

They definitely dont learn — and if taught from a set of human games must ha e been from very new players as evidenced by crazy openings, especially disproportianate italian opening attacks on austria that leads to italy death too. Makes no sense

Re: Screwed up orders

Italy bots screwing up orders in way too many games. Programmers having them
Hit austria at unbelievable proportion compared to real life games. Both lose. Oh well

Re: BOTs

Strongly suggest cancel all games and restart when playing austria where italy opens attacking austria. This is not realistic to happen in such a massive percentage of games (press or gunboat - you dont see tjos irl)so you wont have fair, realistic games

Re: Bot openings

I have never in my years of diplomacy seen italy attack austria so much - the bots cant purely be learning from games … it proves there is an element of programming that allows this to happen

Re: Bot openings

The critical problem continues to be - and I wish certain people would stop denying it- is the original creators programmed the bots to recognize the human player AND programmed certain bots to be passive/others aggressive which actually removes realism (the passive bots will sit and do nothing when...

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

The bots are programmed to recognize human player and will
concentrate moves on the human player. Ex i played england 12 games in a row where all 3 of F/G/R target england. I played next few games as F/G/R and england left alone in each game and did well. Thats not random ...

Re: unexpected draw

Having a lot of fun and some frustration in the bot games. The games would be more interesting imp if the bots didnt know who the human player is.

Re: Welcome to Feedback and Bug Reports!

Fyi. Eng also about as impossible to play as aus. Both ger and fra attack eng in about 90% of games. Minimum. Starting to cancel games as England too with bad starts as otherwise games no fun.

Re: Welcome to Feedback and Bug Reports!

I dont think meta indicates aus doing so well that italy gains from attacking 13 games in a row ;-). Another suggestion - dont let the bots know which is the human player ... as some bots stop playing while others engage the human player. Ex. I’m playing a game as Eng where for several years tky and...

Re: Welcome to Feedback and Bug Reports!

my approach now is to cancel every game that italy opens against austria as very unrealistic ... if italy thinks this is optimistic, there is a programming fix needed is all i am saying

Re: Welcome to Feedback and Bug Reports!

Respectfully, I'm having a hard time believing that. I've played diplomacy for many years on this site and other formats... there is no way the bots are learning from this site's Italy game play IMO. I just tried 13 games in a row as Austria.. and Italy attacked Austria 13 times straight. There is n...

I'm laughing as I noticed 2 of the registered users online right now are bing(bot) and google(bot) ... AI is really getting strong. The bots are checking out forum posts.
