Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Sure, but when the bot is updated, we're not playing the same bot anymore. Kinda relevant to now that you're solving a different puzzle. Speaking of rats, what happened to the 1901 builds in this game? https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=347708#gamePanel Apparently, there is a bug that can rob...

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

Yes, it knows how to play Austria. It did few really nice rushes. I played these as live games, and without a proper sandbox. When the bot played France, that was still good enough to win. But the bot is much better as Austria. Maybe I should have stopped playing the southern opening.. how many trie...

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

Hedge funds bends and breaks rules all the time - and everything they do is notoriously monitored. I'm not trying to defend hedge funds here. But you guys are blinded by your desire to punish the hedge funds. Sure, Melvin capital took losses. Who capitalized from those losses? The guys that sold the...

Seriously, are you guys not aware that pump and dump is market manipulation? Are you not aware that pump and dump is illegal?

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

This is still one of the oldest frauds in the book. That they presented it as being some anti-hedge operation doesn't change that.

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

It means my stake is sold, and you implied that I was unable to speak objectively because I had a stake. I couldn't care less about whether you have stake or not. No hedge fund could have done what reddit did in this case, without being held accountable. The problem for regulators, in this case, is...

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

Yeah, hedge funds love this kind of shit. I guess that Melvin Capital took something of a beating, but overall I'd expect the hedge fund managers to be exuberant.

The whole thing sounds like a pyramid scheme to me. and by pitching themselves as anti-hedge, they got everyone to support there little pyramid scheme.

Re: How often do games draw?

A smaller draw can definitely be a worthy objective. But in my mind, the order of priority is 1. Solo 2. Prevent others from solo'ing 3. Whatever the scoring system says about draws. I think this explains why DSS is so popular online, it's the superior scoring system when it comes to point number 2....

Re: How often do games draw?

That game is kinda extreme. But even with you units that far back, the other powers has no chance of soloing themselves. So, for them, it's a question of whether whittling will give you a second shot at the solo or not. We know jasnah drew that game for principal reasons. But in a WTA and no time-li...
