is there a case though, after the discussion and the vote is closed, for an occasional bot influenced post, about the various rolls without a complete gnu paste-up; ie/ in this recent clem post http://www.fibsboard.com/index.php/topic,2820.msg20810.html#msg20810
- there is no reference to our equity in the game, or any hint for future cube play, only a comparison with the bot's take on the choices.
further, the facilitator of the matches has to use gnu - for recording, and providing screenshots, and propagating dice and for checking available moves with numbering, they are therefore very much "in touch with the bot's view on cube-state" and so, even subconsciously (as most of us facilitators try and still vote, without being influenced by the bot as best we can) it can perhaps permeate our presentation, although i for one, deliberately try and mix up the order of roll options for the vote - when i have resorted to using gnu - for moves with many possible permutations.
and most importantly -- once the moment has gone -- it is very unlikely for any of us to be bothered to retrieve the bot view at a later date - say after the game has finished. Though, as you say dorbel, we could go to gnu at home - but as the match is actually being recorded by gnu - it is far simpler for the facilitator to provide the roll out, when they are preparing the next roll/vote or play.
i remember zorba providing some useful comments illuminated with bot readouts/ in the last match for example, sometimes a little while after the next roll was well underway..
sometimes this really worked i think, but if left too long --as diane says-- it is out of time and mind; the moment is lost, so to speak..i agree the jewel of these forum matches is everyone's take on the plays ---- well interesting
but i propose that, as long as there is no indication of cube info, - then we continue as we have been, unless of course the poll vote and further discussion dictates otherwise
i am interested to learn if the rollout post sited here again http://www.fibsboard.com/index.php/topic,2820.msg20810.html#msg20810
in any way affects cube decisions.......
if you feel strongly about this, please comment and use the poll referenced further up this topic
and thx everyone for making these matches so worthwhile and it has been good to see them evolve with different takes from different facilitators and Guest players alike........i will leave it with the individual facilitators of each match as to how they run it - it makes the matches even more unique
