Re: RR Feedback & Review - have changes achieved their aims?

Claesar - I happen to agree with you on that score and I'm not sure anecdotal evidence is worth much in this argument. Is the success or otherwise of the RR changes something you guys have looked into at all, or are prepared to engage on? If not, why not? Don't know; I'm not an active mod. The fact...

Re: RR Feedback & Review - have changes achieved their aims?

I'm fairly sure the mod team catches and bans almost all new players that re-register under a different username. I don't believe this to be a significant thing. Though you may be correct that many new players *think* their RR doesn't matter because they could create a new account, until they try an...

Re: move resolution bug

I have seen this discrepancy explained in terms of "real word" implications, which I think makes sense. In the case being discussed, if the army in Bre. is busy trying to convoy to Pic., it is not available to defend against an attack from Pic. In the other case, a convoyed army can't help defend a...

Re: two moves against one

A move action cancels the support given by the attacked unit, but not the move action. Nothing happens, as Jamie says.

Re: webDiplomacy.net new server

I hesitate to report this as I wonder why no one else has reported it? Whenever I ready my orders in a bot game I have to refresh the page multiple times before reaching the next phase. Sometimes many, many times which is a bit tedious. I never get to see the button I used to see for moving to next...

Re: Screwed up orders

It's an interesting subject. In Face to Face it's common to have intentional misorders, but the web interface makes it more prone to incidental misorders. webDip has decided to lower the chance of unintentional errors at the expense of many intentional ones. It also works a lot better with the drop-...

Re: Bot openings

We always consider Turkey the least flexible nation in terms of opening moves (and it's true). However, from this data you could also argue it's Russia due to having the highest percentage for a single moveset. You seem to be using an unusual definition of flexibility . Perhaps you meant predictabi...

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

The bots are programmed to recognize human player and will concentrate moves on the human player. Ex i played england 12 games in a row where all 3 of F/G/R target england. I played next few games as F/G/R and england left alone in each game and did well. Thats not random ... The bots really cannot...

Re: Server not processing games?

The last process time was over 12 minutes ago (at Wednesday, 09-Jun-21 15:25:02 CEST UTC+0); the server is not processing games until the cause is found and games are given extra time. Basically my question, is there something I can do about this? Is this all games? It was all games and there was n...
