Very interesting, but I'm not sure that the topic is covered in full. Maybe I'm wrong, but as if something is missing.
Give a damn. I think that's the last spice needed in the mix.

Re: GR for Live/Hybrid games?

Don't know how things are done now but, in the past, GR was always calculated from the end state of the game. So the players, settings, etc. that were there when it ended. If that's the same then ones that are converted would not count as live. I don't quite remember what the cut-off was but most of...

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

God, these world cup games are going slowly. Let's set the start time at whatever happens first: the 3rd game gets filled, or the next round of the WC starts.

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

We're at 2 full games so far but I imagine we can get this to 3. I'm hoping to start this soon after the next round of the world cup starts so that Goldfinger will be done with the heavylifting of setting up the games. I'd rather not go longer than 3 days but can agree to that if the rest of the peo...

Don't know how we can make it fully-anon with sign-ups but I promise to team up with you against goldie if we figure out who he is in the game.

I think we can safely draw a straight line between those points and assume you would have scored 308 this tournament. You used to be good but, you're what, 11th now?

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

Despite what people say about you, Wusti, I always thought you could at least count ; ) Goldie, it can be 48 hrs/turn and pretty casual. If it would make playing easier, we can make sure it doesn't start until after you've set up in the next round of the WC. I'll just add your name to the list so yo...

Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

Hi Everyone, Today marks my 10 year anniversary of joining the site and, coincidentally, looks like the day that the final game from the previous GR challenge is going to finally end. I had a really fun game last time so I wanted to do it again but with a small twist to keep things fresh - let's pla...

Re: Is there a way to export or scrape the chat archive?

Nope but if you click on "messages" at the bottom of the page or should condense it to fewer pages and allow you to scroll back further.

Re: Soloing as Italy

So the current hypothesis is that, in a high GR game, Italy will do relatively better than in the site average? I can get that data for you at some point.

If I were to bet, I'd say that it will not.

Re: Soloing as Italy

There have been two FP games with Mar-Pie, Vie-Tyr, Bud-Tri, Tri-Adr. One of them ended in a 17-17 Italy/England draw.

Re: Soloing as Italy

In full press games, Turkey has not moved Con (held or supported) AND not held Ank and Smyrna in 1.15% of all games played. In those games, they drew 12.3% of the time and solo'd 3.3% of the time. Latest solo is this one: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=326988 Note: Excluding games that di...

Hmm. I think the scraper fucked up because you have no wins. I'm not great at this programming thing but I'll fix it in a bit.

I'll do that soon, teccles. As for most defeats/survives. It's either mean spirited or littered with people that have to be multis. I will point to this person for example because they haven't been active in a long time. They had 88 losses and no wins in the 5 months that they played on the site. A ...

Hi Everyone, Inspired by RoganJosh’s dive into gunboat stats , I decided to look into full press stats. That’ll be coming eventually but in the mean time here are some fun leader boards I’ve put together from scraping the user pages. If there’s anything out that anyone is interested in, let me know ...
