Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

By far the most bizarre game I played against Fairbot so far: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=347130 An 18-11 rout, a French army in Vienna in 1902 and a bot support order for that same army in Fall 1903. And many more very poor choices. Just wondering whether this is the quickest game, an...

If someone else is about to solo after the autumn move, and I still have units but just lost all of my centers, will I survive or am I eliminated?
That is logged as a survival.

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Playing as Austria, Fairbot has won his last 34 games. Two wins to end that streak: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=343777 and a win from 90kicvesb: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=343796 And to keep it going: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=343994 I hate winning bots :)

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. https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=340350 From what I have seen, yes. The bot will draw when the player d...

After my long match, I searched and found 98 bot matches that went to 1910+. (Including both Austria and France). Of those, the bot has won 8, drawn 8, and lost 82.
So that's the answer, just wear the bot out until it gets tired :)

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

I just tried (twice) to start a new game. Fairbot is not functioning. Sorry for that! Should work now. Sort of :( My game got stuck. I had no build orders in W04, bot built and game map progressed to S05, but game still says it’s W04 Build with no orders for me t to fill. http://webdiplomacy.net/bo...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Probably the worst game I've seen Fairbot play against me. A crushing win in 1906:

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

I think the bot has had it. Would be good to speak to the developers - tried send a pm to one but still waiting to hear back. We need 2.0 I think I agree, it’s definitely not superhuman anymore. Since I used the specific A02 counter, out of my last 7 games, I won 4, lost 2 and drew 1. I get nowhere...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

I scored another win, getting the hang of it with a specific A02 counter, similar to what Goldfinger mentioned. http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=336816 Nice! Although I find that the bot will almost always cover Venice A02, so I've take to going to Tuscany instead of trying for it. But ...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Second in a row, I was crushing the bot mid-game, but ended in a conventional center count, though the way to get there was unusual.

Re: You've Never Used Turkey's Best Opening

Very insightful, definitely opened my mind about Turkey’s tactical options. I wonder what you think about it’s usefulness in gunboat?

And I loved the format!
