1. Stalin is very eager to debate as a bot (difficult personality, no doubt). The AI says the he wants to keep his strongest card for last when advancing an issue, does this also apply to debating or will he use the highest card in debate last or not debate if he has only one card left (the highest used only for advance)?

2. When picking issues for a conference, why doesn´t Stalin have a preference for picking war with Japan (like Roosevelts 2nd front preference)? I see the pitfall with the emperor defeated. I haven´t played enough yet, but is USSR at war with Japan mainly in USA/UK interest and not so much USSR?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I have the Stalin bot use the lowest card that will bring the (generally randomly chosen) issue onto his track via Debate. Also, I always have him Debate if he can bring the issue in question onto his track.

I am about to play some games as Stalin vs bots, which I hope will give me a better feel for playing him.

I always debate with the card the brings the issue furthest up the track. The problem with the quarrelsome Stalinbot is that he is very easy to exploit and deplete of high cards. Can´t see him wining with the always debate strategy, but I might be wrong if course.

I smell an historical debate here!

We had a StalinBot last night. We gave him a 1/6 chance to go for Japan Debate, which he rolled of course. This brought up difficult production issues for the Bot.

Only StalinBot took Japan, while the US took Germany. And the Brits won by a huge margin due to politics; I scored 33++ in that area.

So it's complicated. Guess the real war was worse, what with the people dying etc.

Why would Stalin declaring war on Japan run them into production issues?
