Re: Super Robot Rumble [Pre-Betting]

Explanation of Swap File: the basic idea is that the power swaps two players' powers for one round, and then swaps them back after that round. The 'swapping back' happens after any applications of Swap File in a round. An example: Suppose A uses Swap File on B in round 1. In round 2, B gains possess...

Re: Defend the Quarry - Silver into Iron

I don't think an autoapproval system is really necessary, because as we have seen there is often some time before Adam can process approved actions. Also quite a lot of actions have been vetoed, so autoapproving leads to actions being accepted that may be questionable.

Re: Defend the Quarry - Silver into Stone

I think dirt is pretty bad: last time we mined 10 dirt, the stone rate went up from 21 to 23, the iron and silver rates stayed the same, and the monster rates went up quite \significantly (e.g. .3 -> .4 for stone).
Therefore
veto Mine 10 dirt.

I think the general strategy should be to alternate between mining the different rock types as much as possible, in order to maximize the (yield/monster) ratio. For example, a good way to mine would be 1 stone - 1 iron - 1 silver - 1 stone, etc. These ratios are of course rather arbitrary. (Actually...
