Re: China, the NBA, Hearthstone, and South Park

I'm both unsurprised and upset that China's censorship of random meaningless things, which is not new in the slightest, is taking attention away from their disregard for personal freedom and their, uh, genocidal tendencies. Yet the pragmatist in me is also glad that this is making people get on the ...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

If there's a tie for podium positions, there will be one game for each player using the seventh country they have not yet played. Ties beyond there will be figured by... well, idk lol.

Ties will just be ties for those finishing outside the podium.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Reminder that all round 2 games must be finished by Thursday, October 17 at 7 PM central US time. As was the case for some in round 1, failure to finish all three of your games will result in a score of 0.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

All round 2 invites should have been sent out. If you were supposed to receive one and didn't, please let me know.

ALL ROUND 2 GAMES SHOULD BE FINISHED BY OCTOBER 17 AT 7 PM CENTRAL.

Scores will be calculated at that time.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Congratulations to those advancing to round 2! 22 players are advancing out of round 1 with a low cutoff score of 360. Each player advancing won at least one game, with the top 3 scorers soloing all three of their games. Round 2 is going to work a little bit differently. Each of you chose 3 countrie...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Round 1 Scores Those above the cutoff will be sent an invite to play round 2 within 24 hours. Here is the tournament scoring system as a reminder: a.) At the start of each game, you will begin with 140 points. b.) If the game draws, you will lose 20 points for each bot remaining in the game. For ex...

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Due to a slight structural change in the tournament bracket, there will be 22 players moving on to round 2. Final scores from round 1 will be posted tomorrow and invites to begin round 2 will be given out as well.

Round 1 is complete! Scoring will happen over the course of the next few days. Please be patient with me as life is quite busy right now, but I will be doing my best.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Yeah, playing bot games in perpetuity would knock off the Pacifist Game, which is obviously a real high quality Diplomacy game, as the longest running game.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

A few of you have learned that the bots do not enter orders past 1950. You won’t be able to continue past that point.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Please Note: For those who were eligible to replay their games against the new version of the bot, you can no longer start new games if you have not done so already. This is to prevent anyone attempting to gauge whether or not they need to replay to make the cutoff and game the system. The end of r...

Re: Bot game stalled

Yeah, orders are unreadied after a missed turn and the bots don’t know to reready their orders after a missed phase. It will process again when the deadline comes and you can continue.

Re: Bot game stalled

It looks as if the bots have only saved their orders instead of readied them. I suspect this is intentional after a missed turn, but I will have to talk with some smarter people to be sure and then we'll let you know.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

Obviously anyone banned is not getting scored.

We are going to push the round 1 deadline back 48 hours, so the deadline for round 1 games to be scored will be October 2 at 7 PM central US time. Round 2 will start shortly thereafter.

Re: Introducing the first ever webDiplomacy Terminator Tournament!

97 forms were filled out. One was me to test that it worked right and a few were duplicates. Either way, we have nearly 100 participants. Great turnout for such an impromptu tournament, and a great opportunity to see how good these bots really are.
