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...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Ok... My tentative plan for the fall Gal - Rum Ser S Gal - Rum Bul S Gal - Rum F Gre - Aeg F Alb - Gre I should win Rumania. Then can build an army in Vienna. Thoughts, comments? Seems reasonable. Turkey is still attacking Russia so you should be ok. Curious as to whether you will get into AEG or I...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Understood on the confusion point. I'll try to be clear which game I'm referring to. On the Austria game: Ok... The builds are in. https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=429820 Lots of fleet builds. Including Brest, Smyrna, Naples and Sevastopol. My plan is to support myself and Russia in the spr...

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

It's a small sample size, but I'll share my results so far against the bots. I count draws as losses for the win percentages. England: 3-2-2 (43%) France: 2-6-0 (25%) Germany: 3-2-2 (43%) Austria: 3-3-0 (50%) Italy: 4-3-1 (50%) Russia: 3-2-0 (60%) Turkey: 3-3-0 (50%) Differences in win percentages c...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Here is the correct link to my England game: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=429773 Fall 1901. Germany opened MUN-->TYR and he has a 50/50 guess at TRI/VIE. He is totally non-threatening to France. He can't even contest Belgium. Meantime, France opened to PIC, not BUR, and is totally non-t...

Re: Austria vs Bots

As far as the builds go, generally I tend to hold off on building fleets because I don't know how the Italian bot will react... but that doesn't mean your builds are "wrong" to any degree, either. I assume your next target is Bulgaria? I tend to do the same, but I regret not having enough fleets la...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Notes from England, Autumn 1901: Well, the German bot played that weird opening that I've seen sometimes where he moves to Tyo, Sil, and Hol. He bounced Italy out of Tyo, which I think is good, but Italy seemed to also split his ambitions and moved to Apu like he wants to convoy into Tunis as oppos...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Ok I started my game. See here: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=429820 It was an awesome start. I actually gained Galicia in the first turn. It looks like Italy is going for a Lepanto. On a side note both England and Germany had normal openings. My guess is that England will bounce France...

Re: Austria vs Bots

... I would never presume, for example, that Austrian armies are going to make it all the way to Scandinavia (although it would certainly be nice if they did!) It's too easy for StP to be blocked by a northern power.... Personally, I wouldn't necessarily wait until the last minute to stab Italy. It...

Yeah, maybe you're right. Three of these threads are probably unnecessary. George, is that OK if we all use this thread for our games?

England vs Bots - 1

I'm playing a game as England against the bots, with my commentary and analysis in this thread: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?game ... #gamePanel I'll aim to make one move per day. And I'll play it out to the end, win, lose or draw. Comments are welcome. Here is the first installment: Spring 19...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Spring 1901. I'm going to open hard north. Last time I played England, I opened to the Channel and it didn't go so well. I'm also beginning to wonder whether there's value for England in antagonizing France in 1901 in a bot game. We shall see.

Re: Austria vs Bots

FYI... This is the plan. This is all based on the idea that Italy either is helping me with a Lepanto or not attacking me. Normal moves... Gal, Ser & Alb Gal, Ser & Gre Build army and fleet Support into Galicia. Block Turkey in Aegean. Expect Italy to win Smyrna. Keep bouncing Italy in Aegean until...
