Re: Twitter and Musk

Musk either doesn't understand or deliberately misrepresents free speech. He's going to have a bad time. As is everyone on twitter, but that is true regardless of what happens.

Great name! If Tunis builds an army (as they always should) we must work together to convoy them somewhere useful.

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

I always put my draw vote in at the start of the game. The thought of war blows my mind. It ain't nothing but a heart-breaker.

Re: Bots don't know they've been stabbed

A large part of the training data was points per supply centre games, so the bots are more than happy to play for second place. It is my hope that a newer bot version will expunge these games now we have a larger pool of finished games, but I don't think anyone is volunteering to do this.

Re: Change request: set the default excused missed turns for chaos games to zero.

Every year, many people are eliminated and at least one doesn't enter their final disband/retreat. It's not just a 1901 thing. With 34 players it's a significant problem. In a normal game the max delayed turns is 7. We have already exceeded that by 1903.

How does that even work? I mean, it should be like their daisy chained. I would think that everyone who misses a turn in a round (or whatever) loses their missed turn together, and CD's together (not real sure how I should say that.)
That's not how chaos works.

Please. 34 excused missed turns is not the appropriate default for a chaos game.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Be mindful that the dataset is larger when you include games not played on webDiplomacy. I will not be drawn into a discussion on whether PPSC or PlayDip produces worse players :p Obviously diluting our PPSC games with games from other sites is good, but better yet to purge the games altogether if ...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Out of curiosity, were PPSC games included in the training dataset? Yes, PPSC was. Of the classic games played on webdip 21,987 were WTA, 32,245 are PPSC, 1,728 are Unranked, and 2,216 are SOS. That's the largest number of games. I imagine bots trained without PPSC games might be more adept at stop...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Has anybody had a bot game in which Italy attacks Austria early? Just curious as the bots seem to love the Austria Italy alliance so far from what I have seen. Given how popular the opening is on this site, I actually wasn't at all surprised to see Italy attack Austria right off the bat. http://web...
