@clyring, don't degrade yourself by admitting inferiority to a tin can (check the OP).
 
Also, it's funny how you suggested that rbarreira sign up ziltoid for an easy win, and it then lost that round and two out of three since then.
 
I think my theory given earlier about bots in the endgame is somewhat valid.

 
In the bot's defense, one of the lost rounds doesn't really look like an endgame Wink
 
Still, you and clyring were able to pull off some impressive play, and the participating bots do have some strategic holes regarding goal attacks.

That's true, although goal threats played a much larger role in that game than they usually do. I even missed an earlier forced goal.

I wonder what would happen if bots were programmed for the endgame rather than normal Arimaa, and humans studied the endgame instead of normal Arimaa. I wonder who would be on top then. Right now humans haven't done a lot of study of the endgame except for EEE, and the bots' evaluation is more based on the middlegame and opening.

I've tried messaging him, inviting him, and addressing him in the chatroom, but he hasn't responded to anything yet. I remember trying to say something back when he played his AWL game, but I got no response.
 
Edit: For the record, the message was sent yesterday, and the invite today while he was in the gameroom (possibly afk).
 
Edit: He is no longer in the gameroom. I don't know how I'm supposed to play him if I can't communicate with him. I did say to him earlier in the week that I like to play my games on the weekend, and he didn't seem to have a problem with that.

Our game has been played.
I hope you enjoyed it knak, although I'm not sure I got that impression since you left so quickly afterwards. Were you in a hurry?

Hi Browni,  Thanks for the game.  Yes I was in quite a bit of a hurry and I saw your message so I tried to make time last night.  Also I'm sorry I resigned instead of playing it out, but I'm fairly sure I was out of options.  
 
For the record, I messaged you a couple times in the chatroom as well for our game, but I admit I was gone from the computer over the weekend.  Weekends are generally bad times for me to play arimaa.  
 
Thanks again for the game!

I'm sorry that I assumed it would be okay to wait until the weekend, knak.

No worries!  I apologize; I am notoriously bad at checking messages.   I visit the forum more frequently, however.
