Submissions have been closed, and the rankings have been reset. Recomputing them should take a few days. We'll keep you posted.

Thank you all for such a great competition! Special thanks to @janzert, @nmalaguti, and @erdman, who have contributed lots of dev work, tools, and tutorials to the project.

I look forward to seeing who takes the crown and to reading your post mortems and bot source code.

One important q @truell20 and @Sydriax : the gameplay rate feels much slower than before (four hours after the reset my bot has played only 8 games ). I guess this is simply because everyone is seeding - but in that case how many games would each bot have played at the final deadline ? Would it broadly be the same for everyone e.g, 400 games ? Cheers !

I'm already feeling nostalgic, looking over old posts.
Hard to believe it was , in the end, only a few intense weeks for many of us. To paraphrase Tom West in The Soul of a New Machine : It was a winter romance, but that's alright : winter romances are some of the best things that ever happen.

I hope that the number of games will depend for example on the tier.

Great job guys. Fun competition, reminded me of Ants :slight_smile:
I am really busy at work, have to work extra hours. Only in the past week I got a break-through with my bot. I am happy if I finish top 100.
Looking forward next competition :smile:

That is because everyone is seeding. To speed up the ranking process, we may open up more servers and start do block lower rank players from seeding.


#6

are you planning on writing anything up or talking about your code? I'm sure more than a few people are curious to see.


#7

Here's where we were as of midnight EST, last night. Mzotkiew has first locked down.

Finally I have some time to work on that. I hope to release it this weekend.
