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?

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...

Re: why only two 1:1 bot options?

Re: Bot games don't draw

... What is rather annoying is that bots immediately draw once the human player is destroyed. It would be quite interesting to see how they would continue and play out against each other. We've found out this causes severe server stress because they go through the turns so quickly. We had to change...
