Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

It doesn't seem right that someone should start with less than 100% reliability since they haven't missed any turns. How are they supposed to join any games if they start with a low RR and don't want to play against bots? A lot of us don't want to play against bots. I never had to play against bots...

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

After subbing in for Italy and playing alongside everything that was happening, I'm not sure exactly what happened there. On the one hand, it was no secret that Austria and Russia did not get along, and I would not be surprised if Austrias mistake was not a mistake at all. On the other hand, Austria...

Re: Activity of Eliminated Players

I am currently spectating a game where one of the players who was previously reduced to controlling zero supply centers was making comments in the global chat with the seeming intent of influencing the remaining players. It got me wondering, is this something that would be accepted or frowned upon?...

Re: Surrendering

Due to a desire to have better data surrounding bot play, we do not allow you to concede in classic bot games. You must play until you are eliminated

Re: Bots

They actually have no idea who the bots are and who the humans are from a code perspective. Bots are just good at reading the board and support orders. Make sure you enter supports, as it is the only way the bots communicate with you and each other.

Re: Which country?

No. You cannot use the bot game country selection to game the system if that is what you are getting at.

Re: How's 2020 going?

Quite genuinely it's been a great year. Fantastic weather, had a splurge of theatre trips in the first 3 months that felt ridiculously OTT at the time but turns out to have been timed beautifully, had 10 weeks of minimal work on full pay full of long walks in the sunshine and drinking beer in the g...

Re: Unexpected draw in Bot game

When you say you had just entered orders and clicked to see results what exactly do you mean by this? What did you click? Was the game open on your browser for an extended period of time? I think this has happened once before but we couldn't gather enough information to figure out exactly what had h...

Re: Practise Orders?

I'm not sure exactly what it is you are looking for format-wise. If you are looking for a diplomacy sandbox, Backstabbr is the place to go. Webdip is great, but we don't have a sandbox as of yet. If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to rules and how to adjudicate complex scenarios, studying ...

Re: Pause vote question

Correct. When considering votes the system only looks at players who are still in the game. Any player that is defeated or has left (whether that be a civil disorder from missing turns or a ban) will not be considered when counting votes

Re: A rant about Reliability Rating

Yeah the default RR setting for games is 80% (obviously lower if the creators RR is below 80), and rarely do people raise that, especially not past 95%. You shouldn't be missing out much from a single 5% penalty.

Re: Live game settings

To follow up on this: Live games will start at the start time regardless of when they fill up. Games with longer phases will begin as soon as they fill up. There isn't a setting for this, it's based on phase lengths. We've designed it so that in live games you don't get taken off guard, but with lon...

Re: Discord Bot for Notifications

Man maybe I'm running into the limits of my tech skills, but like what do you mean by "using" d.help? I tried sending "d.help" as a message to the bot after getting the bot to appear on my server, but nothing happens. Well then you either didn't set the bot up correctly or its broken. I couldn't te...

Re: Discord Bot for Notifications

From their documentation it looks like you use the command set to hook a channel up to a specific game. So:

d.set [gameID]

It looks like you have to configure the bot first, not sure if you have done that. You can use d.help to get available commands.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

People have different tastes, and when you get used to one map, another map might seem weird. I personally like the clean look of backstabbr, but I still can't wrap my head around their support arrows, being used to webdips. The sandbox mode is really what makes sense for the f2f scene. Easy to mirr...
