Re: Welcome to Feedback and Bug Reports!

However, the bots don't know which player is human and which is bot.

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...

Re: Known world 901

Unfortunately, it causes bugs on the site. Doesn't agree with our code. For the foreseeable future, this variant will only be playable on vDip.

Your assumption is wrong. This was implemented on purpose.

What about retreats?
If you NMR retreats then you disband those units.

Why I think that's about the nicest thing you've ever called me Claesar.

I don't recall calling you anything (in public) before, so it would simultaneously be the nicest and the worst thing.

That's about as ridiculous a thing as I've ever seen a mod post. Re-read what you just typed.

If people don't want it to be used as a tool - then they'll make HDV games.
Just because it's possible, doesn't mean it's allowed. Like murder, mr. Anarchist.

Re: Communicating with draw & cancel button in gunboat

You are correct; there's no specific rule (yet) against using the Draw button in weird ways. Perhaps we weren't creative enough. Still, the general rule applies: Do not break game messaging/press rules.

Re: New annual point giveaway!!!!

This is really interesting. It pays to sign up later, bit if everyone does that no one will get paid. Prisoner's dilemma. This post is not a sign-up by the way. I'm not going for a #2.

Re: Communicating with draw & cancel button in gunboat

Nesdunk is correct.

The only allowed use of the draw button is to signal that you wish the game to be drawn when everyone else votes that too.

Re: Missed Deadline in "Funny", thanks for the game, guys

This is a difficult question that had been asked many times already. On the one hand, it would be fair for replacement players to have excuses too. They're human and could miss a deadline. On the other hand, the original players have already dealt with delays! This is very frustrating and we've deci...

Re: Low start reliability

As soon as you complete a single turn, you will be set to 100%RR. No need to play a full game. The fastest way would be to start a game against our bots (Create a new game -> Play against Bots). You could even do just one move and then vote Cancel.
