Openings against Bots

How do I open as a diplomacy-heavy country (Austria, France, Italy, etc.) when I can't communicate with the bots?

France - open with a supported attack on Bur, and go into MAO. Honestly as France you're probably fine even if you do get attacked, it's pretty strong defensively.

Italy - throw a support hold on Tri and convoy to Tun if you want to work with austria, the support hold will do the communicating job for you

Austria - cancel and start another if you get attacked by everyone lol

You haven't played any Gunboat game in your history. Gunboat is a variant of Diplomacy. In Gunboat, the players may not communicate with messages. The players may only communicate with their actions - special with orders. Find it out through experience.
