Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I mean, look it paid out well. The line was at -400 when the tournament started. I got mine, so I say nothing to see here.

Re: Freedom!

Ironic this is posted as US case counts are exploding and talks of lockdown are rising.

Do the bots only imitate humans, or do they learn from their own games?
As far as I'm aware, they do not learn from their own games. They were trained on a set of human games.

Re: Bot openings

I have never in my years of diplomacy seen italy attack austria so much - the bots cant purely be learning from games … it proves there is an element of programming that allows this to happen You seek to be focusing on this a lot. It doesn't matter how *often* it occurs in the training sample. If I...

Takeover Position Needed

Hi there, we urgently need someone to take over a position in an ongoing game. Press, SoS scoring, 1 day phases. The players seem chatty :)

Please email the moderator team or express interest here if you want the link to the game.

Thanks! I will say that the forum here back then was top-notch. Lots of interesting discussions that would have been blocked elsewhere.
Yeah, about that....

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Games were unranked, so don't affect GR. This was done to remove disincentives for individuals to potentially throw games for the sake of their team.

I'll inquire on the trophies on player profiles.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

That's all folks! The last gunboat game has just wrapped in a draw between California, Eastern Canada, Yorkshire Puddings, and Greatest Lakes. Which means the winner of the tournament is The Yorkshire Puddings! They have had an absolutely spectacular run of the tournament, placing in every single dr...

And another thing I noticed just now: the dates are off. I finished https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=366522 yesterday and https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=366576 today. Those games state they're finished on Sunday 11 July and Monday 12 July, respectively. However, today is Friday ...

Re: webDiplomacy.net new server

Hey guys for stuff like RR impacts just send an email to the mods and we'll take care of it. Let's try to keep this thread focused on any actual bugs themselves.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Heh, that was a month and a half ago, HB. But I suppose its time I give an update. Yorkshire Puddings is in the lead, helped by a perfect record in 1v1. Their last matchup is vs. Prosecco. Can the Italians channel their inner Caesar and conquer Britannia? Much of the rest of the standings is driven ...

Re: Message Composition

Depends upon the nature of the message. If we're arguing over stalemate lines and stab possibilities, I study quite carefully. In the early game I almost never do. But if you're playing as long as I have, then you have the maps and openings all memorized anyways. A newer player should consult freque...

Re: Omnipresent Zultar's fantastic Holiday Diplomacy Game

Well, I'll give my shot at a much abridged EoG, as my part in this game was rather limited. I walked into a France under attack from all sides after Spring 02. After some desperate communications, I get a clear commitment from Italy to save my life, which I would spend the rest of the game repaying....
