[quickly diverts game <> simulation thread - not that anyone is active on this forum much as it is] It occurred to me that grand strategy AI, which as martin says is most important, is going to be very difficult to do "properly". DEFCON is surpassing different from most other computer stra...

Hehe ... what I _try_ to do is put carriers on antisub once all their bombers have been launched. It's reasonably quick to switch them back into fighter mode if required (in a trademark group of 5 ships, I would put 1 bb (for short range air defence, 2 bomber mode (for long range fleet attack)1 figh...

Aargh! Terribly exciting sounding _and_ I have PC access (tho rubbish internet) _and_ lots of spare time but I couldn't program in c++ to save my life So I guess, similar to Ace and rus|Mike, I'd be happy to help collaborate on sstrategies / debugging ... Any coders, drop me a PM (which I still occa...

Well according to the stats, team B has the fewest losses, so it needs my help the most!!

Plus I enjoy playing against you and Ace almost as much as I enjoy allying with MOR ;)

I wanna be on Hyperion's team!!

But failing that, I hereby announce my joining of team (MOR). Someone's gotta keep the b*stard honest :)

PS that means I'm returning to playing (intermittently) at long last. Prepare for some insanely low skillz

So I voted 6p survivor. Knife Fight Mode ftw!!!! For the record, 6p survivor is slightly superior to diplomacy because of the added elements of radar (non) sharing and the necessity to scout. Diplo premium is also good, if only for the massive friendly firefights at DEFCON 3. What bomber would pass ...

Oh Ace, you are so a gravedigger!!! Not that I have access to DEFCON at the moment to replay the game, I'm sure that the first post assumed that the star was played competently. Anyway, like I can remember something I posted almost a year ago . . . . /relurks. Currently I'm in Munich enjoying the Ok...

Hi All - unfortunately I now have no PC access so I'll be having to RESIGN FROM THE TOURNEY - not quite undefeated :)

WR - up to you what happens so either MikeTW could take my place, or Mojo advances by default - your call

Good luck to all!

Yay, fun game, liked the experimental style (but the codes were all, well, hard ;) ) I blame Mas (don't I always ...!) for not signing onto the loyal but reckless commie network. And I think this will be my last TWG as it's my last day in the office today :D I'll pop by every now and then (when my i...

ZOMG how did that happenzors :shock:

As I said to Solanum a few days ago, all green alliance members are pansies. It's a rule :P

(Although I do love it how the person who does nothing often wins. The only winning move, of course, is not to play!)

OK then - on the off chance that a) Mas doesn't change his vote and b) the agents don't win during the night that will mean that Feud and Mas are the remaining agents @rus|Mike, I may be following shiny, but that's because shiny has realised the truth that kunshu and I are both loyal, hence Shiny is...

Well there was I expecting to wake up dead, but it's now clear to me why I've been left alive because I'm coming to the top of the lynch list. Assuming Max was an agent, then my death won't be conclusive, but obviously it would be better to lynch someone who's more likely to be an agent than me! Mas...

Generally as Africa I try to dissuade SA from placing ships in the atlantic at all. He can go and use them on someone else ... usually doesn't work though!
