private w/ friends + bots

#1 Post by Deme » Sun Nov 14, 2021 3:25 am

Hi, just set up an account! I was hoping to create a private game with a mixture of real people I invite + bots to fill in. Any way to do this? Thank you!

You can create a password-protected game so that only people you invite can join it.

(They have to have an account here too, of course).

Set Game Messaging to None, then you can tick "Fill Empty Spots with Bots".

Hi,

Ahh OK - does this mean that the game will start when the "Time to Fill Game" period is over and fill empty spots with bots?

Very convenient thread - exactly what I was looking for!

Make sure a human player takes Italy ... the programmers didn't program Italy properly and the bots aren't learning from real games unfortunately.....
