Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

It's still winning at an absolutely blistering 80% clip. To the average player it's probably pretty close to unstoppable. I finally clutched out a win as France, and yes that means getting to 18. http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=332146 The bot's affinity for its One True Opening with either...

Re: Cancel Baby Yoda

Hmmm, personally took it as baby yoda knowing it was bad but being a predator species and not caring, hinting at a possible play on a dark side component to him in future episodes, and if so...it was pretty well done.

Re: France vs Austria Bot Challenge

I think FairBot has stalled? It hasn't played moves in my game in the last hour. Thanks, I just brought it up to the team there, should have an update on that soon. Please pause any game before it reaches the turn end if you see it getting close. And already got a reply, they are active working on ...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

On my profile page, under Ghost Rating Overall - It gives my October 2020 current GR of 134, and peak GR of 135, which match the October GR file (link below I hope) However, it lists my "Position" as 3823. My October Overall GR Rank is 764. I haven't finished a game in either October or November. I...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

The issue here is that the GR categories have been in existence for decades now. I did not determine what goes in each category, or how they are made (trust me, I would have done things differently if setting up a brand new ranking system). So we can't just change the categories to match the other ...

Re: Election Night Thread

Michigan has 3.6 million mail in ballots, which won't be counted entirely till November 6th. It's going to be insanely close, and those 300,000 ballots the postal service refused to send before 8pm despite a court order might be the deciding factor. Penn is going Biden given it's 2.2 million absente...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

There's a thing about the ranking in HoF where I believe it glitches out when you have less than 100 GR? For example, this is what it currently says for me; You are ranked #25233 out of 25232 players with an overall GR of over 100. I wonder if this relates to how my HoF ranking says I’m one less th...

Are those titles a Premium perk?
It's a monthly bid, for the reasonable price of $49.99 you can be top guy next month!

Also, should have mentioned this in the OP. Looking for feedback on the new profile page. The goal is an easy to understand page for new and experienced players alike.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

That said, the categories don't match up exactly, for instance, there's no Variant-only GR. I don't think there would be much grumbling if GR was tweaked to fit into the categories (or maybe better yet vice versa). All the different terms are probably a little confusing to the new player anyways. A...

I also just noticed that the new user search page now routes to an actual url! It's a super minor thing, but it's bothered me for years. Amazing work with all your many changes, folks! <3 Yeah, the search "page" was just a part of the old profile page so I just rewrote it as a new page without the ...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Awesome job all around. Thank you all for how much effort you put into the site. I was going through the HoF and stumbled on Bearnstien. How is GR handling banned players? Perhaps that should at least be scrubbed from the rankings. edit: It also says that MM has a peak GR of 771 all-tie but a peak ...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

You guys are relentless, extremely impressive and much appreciated, thanks to all involved! Yonni, looks like the “Overall Peak Ghost Rating” link in the HoF should maybe be “Current Ghost Rating” as my current is listed there rather than peak? At one point I started moving the rating to peakRating...

Squigs, jmo, bo, y'all are amazing. webDip is so lucky to have you.

I assume people no longer drop off the rating anymore after inactivity?
The hall of fame shows a version with drop off, future details page will show more

Re: All Diplomacy Scoring Stinks

What I think is interesting is that most of the models I've ever seen proposed have not accounted for one of the biggest skill based factors in a game. Country. There are some top players who are amazing at 5 or 6 countries, but tend to lose every game as 1 specific country. If for example, I enter ...
