I'm seeing the same issue with bot games now. It seemed ok earlier this afternoon, I got one turn in before it stopped working.

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

It's nice you keep track of your games. However, I'm not really that interested in which countries survived or how many centres they had. When I started playing against the bots I was curious as to the question of "am I a better player than the AI" which led to the various stat tracking (plus I'm j...

Question about a possible variant

Curious (since variantbank.org seems to not be 100% working, lots of errors browsing pages) if anyone knows of a variant of the classic game where the only changes to the map are adjusting things so that the three "dual coast" provinces were actually spilt into two provinces? (It looks like the Mode...

Re: webDiplomacy's interpretation of the victory rules

Here's an example of a game that was drawn, despite one player having 18 centres (yes, seriously): http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=349971 That shouldn't have happened. Hey, that's one of mine, didn't expect to see that! At the time, I didn't even realize that it was reported as a draw inst...

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

Thanks for sharing your results! Here's how often I've won so far when playing against bots: England : 1 / 11 = 0.09 France : 1 / 5 = 0.2 Italy : 2 / 6 = 0.33 Germany : 3 / 5 = 0.6 Austria : 5 / 17 = 0.29 Turkey : 4 / 4 = 1 Russia : 0 / 5 = 0 all : 16 / 53 = 0.3 I realize my sample is rather small ...

Re: How Old are Diplomacy Players

45 (I like to think of myself as the "Oregon Trail Generation" as I don't really identify completely with really either Gen X or Gen Y as I've heard them described) although I started playing Diplomacy somewhere around age 34 (I can't remember now if it was 2009, 2010, or 2011).

Re: Guess the Word

Hm, something that lives in the water but is not amphibious, a mammal, or a fish. Something more general than an individual species, jellyfish is close.

Coral?
Plankton?
Anemone?
Cephalopod?

Re: Do I survive with units but no centers?

The rulebook says that anyone with units on the board is a survivor. Adjustments to remove units happen after centres are counted. The latest version of the rulebook online only seems to count "pieces on the board" as a criteria of who gets in a draw, not who "survives" in a solo: "As soon as one G...
