Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

Or at least...it was the best tactical move until I pointed it out, because once that's pointed out it means that because Serbia will be tied up, Austria cannot perform a 3 support attack on Bulg meaning that Turkey would be free to use Const to support hold Smyrna which is otherwise less likely to...

Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

@gold I like that analysis but it's a little lacking around Austria and tapping. The main reason for that is Russia made a move for Vienna last turn right? So that means that Austria is forced to assume that another move is coming. Either a supported move against Budapest, which would have to come f...

Re: A Violation of Unwritten Rules of WebDip?

The only luck that exists in Diplomacy is when one player takes a coin and uses flipping it to decide their move.

Re: Forum Public Press Game Thread

Italy - FlyingBoat - C You were outguessed. Did you know the great players win 80-90% of their 50-50s? There's so much you can do to sway the odds in your favour. Can you ensure success this year? Also, winning 80% of 50-50 guesses is still luck, not skill. If the two options are equal in all respe...

Re: Cheating or not?

Dear member,

I have removed the link to the game from the post. We do not allow public cheating accusations. Those need to be communicated to webdipmod@gmail.com.

Future accusations in public will result in point dock.

Could always do negative points for a game that drew without a stalemate lined up.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

@Valis, but if the things you mention led to a win, would it still be something to criticize? The goal of this tournament as I understand it is to solo. So if people find weird strategies to do so, why criticize? It's just not a mindset I share so curious to see the counter.

You really need help. If you're still going on about that all this time later you have some type of problem.

But it does seem to me that once a player has checked with a tournament director on a strategy and it has been approved, the player really should not be criticized for their play.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

To back up goldie's message, there is 10000000% a pattern of top players being more likely to back out of a tournament. No idea why, but it does make keeping a tournament high GR only very difficult once the replacements begin to be needed. I have seen this uniformly across tournaments of all time d...

Re: AI bots on webDiplomacy: Skynet edition!

Fair enough, but what about the country they are assigned? Do the AIs have different "personalities?" For giggles, I played as Austria about ten times yesterday. Skynet was Italy every time. 9/10 times, he either moved Venice to Trieste in S01, Venice to Tyrolia with Rome to Venice in S01 or convoy...

Again, you're not really understanding my point. I am not asking for the AIs to play worse. I'm asking for the AIs to PLAY BETTER. From my last, playing as Austria is not my concern; it's a general example. I'm asking you to provide feedback to the developers, not "fix" anything. There are a few sh...

No offense, but I've supported them before to no avail. Try playing the AIs as Austria. Yeah I did, http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=287589#gamePanel And you can honestly say that when you play as Austria, that's a typical outcome? Play as Austria 100 times and post the results of each time...

Another funny example of the human player, me as Turkey, facing a rather improbable AI alliance. They definitely know who the human is and gang up on him/her. Some of those coordinated attacks on me holding Rumania, two times, by a multi-national alliance, different alliances each time, really indi...
