Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

I soloed as Austria in “Botty 3” There was a stalemate in the Balkans with Turkey for several years with the same moves ordered over and over.

Promoting Earth Hour? Does anyone believe this Global warming hoax anymore?

Sure I’m old and sceptical but I thought this pandemic would put an end to the great global warming scam. Surely it’s obvious that a “Green new deal” would create just this level of economic decline and its attendant misery and uncertainty.

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

I have an issue with another form of what I would put in the honesty/dishonesty category. That is someone who copies and pastes your conversation and sends it to another player. This to me is the outside the normal realm of proper communication in this game. It really irks me something fierce!

Re: Djokovic took 15th grand slam

Beware of extrapolation from statistics. If you had looked at the exponential growth in the number of Elvis impersonators by 1979, you would confidently predict that by 2020 there would be 5.6 Billion Elvis impersonators. With that caveat, I still think Djokovic will pass Federer due to his mental t...
