Re: Any theory as to why the AI behaved this way in this game?

The bots are taught via machine learning, which essentially means this question can't be answered. Best off the cuff guess, it learned from humans that France holding EC is considered aggressive against England.

Re: Moderator Team Announcement

A couple of clarity points. I like Magnetic, I think they're a decent human, and hope them luck in life. But that's not something we can consider in this instance. Because everyone who represents the site is taking on a trust that we've earned from all of you to keep your games fair and free from ch...

Moderator Team Announcement

Magnetic24 has been removed from the moderator team and permanently banned from webDiplomacy for abuse of his moderator powers by excusing his own NMRs, removing his own temporary bans, and recalculating his RR to preserve his rating. We apologize for not catching this sooner but would like to reite...

and you select No Messaging
The bot's not talking will not be a problem since per my message it's just no messaging games.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

When you're on the game create page and you select No Messaging and Classic a new checkbox appears under the messaging dropdown called "Fill Empty Spots with Bots:" and if checked will start a game at the normal start time even if it does not get filled. If there aren't at least 2 humans in the game...

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

Unfortunately the mods who worked with gold on this didn't mention we need people to sign up using the new tournament functionality which will take a day or so to get up and running. Please still express your interest here, but be aware we will need everyone participating to use the tournament tool ...

Re: "Finished date"

The finished date is whatever the next process time for the game was when it ended. So if it's a 10 day phase and it ended 3 days into it, the finished date will be 7 days in the future

And when one is unable to rule out any possibilities, the most likely answer is the conspiracy theory of the mods wanting a specific player to win...who's Trumpesque now?

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Oh huh, MadMarx calling members of the moderator team liars, comparing them to various world leaders you dislike, and not emailing concerns to the mod email because trying to work up the member base instead of getting concerns addressed is just so much more fun. What a surprise. I'm sure we'll be he...

You can either draw that, or I'll have to cancel it. Let me know which you prefer, we can't have the bots missing turns and taking RR hits though. Sorry.

Site Down Time

What happened? When the site went down from too much traffic the other day some people left bot games they'd started which was never supposed to be possible because they start right away. Then someone else took over, and they didn't have the same country choice, so the games died a horrible death. W...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I would guess that units sneaking behind the front lines is fairly uncommon in human games. The bot probably doesn't have enough examples of that behaviour to properly evaluate the danger. It's a limitation of the training method, if you bring the bot outside of what it has seen, you never know how...

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 ...

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.

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I think the move is a bit silly. Wouldn't it be better to support MAO into Brest and also have Spain to MAO? Am I missing a link to the game, because the move making sense is completely dependent on North Atlantic Ocean being occupied or not. If it is occupied EC support move into Brest from MAO an...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Some updates have been made to the bot to try and enhance its unpredictability in certain scenarios. If you have played your first three games and want to replay them with these changes, you are free to do so as long as you please simply PM me the URLs to your three new games.

On the chance anyone noticed, we had the bots offline for about 10 minutes, Philip was making some adjustments. The adjustments will ideally help out end game play a little bit in keeping powers from being "stuck" in all holds for to long, and will prevent a bot from trying to retreat 2 powers to th...
