Re: Austria vs Bots

Here is another T-0128 update. The results of the Autumn 1903 moves, retreats, and winter adjustments: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=429773&turn=5&mapType=large I decided to go with Doug's recommendation: don't attack Denmark, hit Belgium as Germany requested. I slightly varied the moves i...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Those are good moves. Italy will probably take Spain and Portugal, for 2 builds.

Re: Austria vs Bots

I will skip the naming of moves, just give you the beta map.
We can't see your proposed moves on the beta map. We only see the current positions of the units.

Re: Austria vs Bots

This is about the Austria game... Trig writes: I agree with Doug, these are solid moves. I think you've got this one in the bag tbh. You should get Munich and Berlin this year, maybe StP too. Thanks for the vote of confidence... I would love it if I could get to 18 without stabbing Italy.... This i...

Re: Austria vs Bots

A further update on T-0128. Here are the Spring '03 results: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=429773&turn=4&mapType=large The good news: I made it to Irish Sea. Now France might have to consider BRE support-hold MAO, and stop hammering the Channel. The bad news: Germany moved DEN-->SKA. He di...

Re: Austria vs Bots

George's game: Vie - Tri Tyr - Mun Gal - Sil (support from Boh) War - Pru Mos - Lvn Ukr - War I agree with Doug, these are solid moves. I think you've got this one in the bag tbh. You should get Munich and Berlin this year, maybe StP too. My game: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=429773&turn=...

Re: Austria vs Bots

That suggests your first option, MAO-->NAF, SPA-->WMS, POR-->SPA, is maybe the best? Doug: Now as I'm looking at it again, there is a danger in this moveset. If France moves BRE-->GAS, MAR-->SPA (or MAR Hold), you could lose Spain in the fall: GAS-->SPA S MAR, and TYS-->WES to cut support. Maybe th...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Here is where things stand with T-0128: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=429773&turn=3&mapType=large Doug, your predictions of the bot moves last round were 100% correct. Germany took Sweden for himself, France attacked the Channel with support, and Russia didn't defend StP. The interesting o...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Doug's game: The German front is annoying because I can't guarantee NTH->Den without support from Swe, when I'd really like to move Swe-Nor and use the convoy chain to get that army south... but I can't move NTH to ENC and Lon to ENC, of course... what about Swe->Den and then Lon->Wal, Edi-NTH, NTH-...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Doug writes Con's support order was in the wrong direction. You supported Ank->Bul instead of Bul->Ank... just out of curiosity, have you tried the new beta interface yet? Not sure. Normally I make moves from the map screen. I make the occasional screw up (as you just witnessed) but I like it and i...

Re: Austria vs Bots

An update on my game, T-0128. Here is the current state of affairs: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=429773&turn=2&mapType=large I took your advice last turn. I left Germany alone, supported myself into ENG, and basically held in NWG and NWY. I wanted to "wait and see" for one more turn. I th...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Doug, I'm learning from your game. I've never used this strategy as England. Obviously, it's working. 8-) It would be nice if Russia stopped hammering StP. That fleet Barents could be useful elsewhere.

Re: Austria vs Bots

Guys My tentative moves: Sevastopol to Moscow (with two supports) Bulgaria convoys to Ankara (with support) Rum - Gal Vie - Boh Bud - Vie F Tri - Adr Germany only has four armies so may have trouble defending his home centers. It looks like Italy will be able to take Marseilles this turn and win Ib...

Re: Bot Talk

yolo5 is a registered webdip user. You can do a user search and see all of its games. The Meta speedboat games all have the name "Meta Speedboat Tournament-" and the game number. I'm not sure how many times the bot played each power.

Re: Austria vs Bots

A quick update on T-0128. I've had little time to devote to the game since my last post. I think neither of you especially liked my suggested moves. I'm now close to deadline, and I'm about to board a flight. I'll take one more look and then I'll have to decide. George: Yes, the game is still in Spr...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Here are my thoughts on the three games. First, George's game: Ok, that didn't work as I expected. Turkey supported Russia in Rumania, so that move failed. Everything else worked. https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=429820 That's *exactly* the kind of thing that I was thinking about before vis...

Re: Bot Talk

Those France vs Austria style games are not the real game obviously. Bots should do well there, it's like a different version of checkers or chess. I agree, although the right way to describe FvA might be as a far, far more complicated version of chess. Orders of magnitude more possibilities, so ma...

Re: Bot Talk

You can play FvA any time against Fairbot, Meta's advanced AI. If you choose Games/Play Against AI/Bot, and select Classic-FvA, you will automatically be playing against Fairbot. Fairbot is not easy to beat. I consider myself an above-average FvA player and my win percentage against Fairbot is about...

Re: Austria vs Bots

I see I have some catching up to do. Doug, good point that you can "spectate" games. I'm now spectating both yours and George's. Makes them much easier to find. :-D Doug, you're in great shape. I don't have anything useful to add at this time. George, one thought on yours. You, too, are in great sha...
