Re: Announcing The New Year Challenge Gunboat Tournament

At risk of asking a stupid question!…

Re: Russia’s ultimate victory

Pretty cool…

Shame you can’t fill in the colour on some of the islands and the land associated with Beaufort Sea though.
There’s the same issue with Crete and Sardinian on the classic map.

Presumably it would be an easy fix.

Yeah. It does help that the bots seem to repeat moves with a high degree of predictability. Though not 100%, and they caught me out a couple of times.

I could be wrong but I thought there were no retreats once someone hits 18.
That wouldn’t explain why Venice didn’t retreat in Spring 1941 though. Last year of the game.

Re: Russia’s ultimate victory

I was intrigued to see if it was possible after a previous game where I started and failed. In that game I had managed to capture the enemies home centres so they couldn’t rebuild. Here I had to rely on keeping on their homes centres which made for a tricky finish. There were 3 challenges 1. Get to ...

Re: Russia’s ultimate victory

Surprisingly hard to do without winning before completion.
And then getting into the right position for the final rout.

It did of course help that the bots are reasonably predictable. Though one surprise move did delay the finale a year.

Russia’s ultimate victory

You can have your whole map in one colour against the bots.
(Except for Crete and Sardina but I guess that’s another discussion)
Not sure I’d make the effort again though….

Re: Are the Bots improving?

Claesar thanks for the explanation. I'm not one for conspiracy theories but...I have played another couple more games against the bots and they have allowed me to win. They may have realised that their cover was nearly blown. Humans clearly make better sport. But the Bots do have two small attractio...

Are the Bots improving?

My first forays into playing the Bots resulted in quite a few solos. More recently though I seem to be getting unceremoniously annihilated early on in the games. Are they improving? My more existential concern is that they may have outgrown their programming and are now actively picking on humans....
