As other programmers I always think like : 'how to automatically determine starter packages bots and exclude them?'
But! Before submission end automatic detection was the obligatory demand as count of submission to check if it's starter bot was not limited.
But now organizers can spent not so much time to really quick shorten the bots queue by manual starter bots removing. Understand it sounds very abnormal for us, but I have tried to find starter packages bots, and it seems that I can find at least 5 of them per minute (includes time to wait replays and pages loading).
So it is possible to determine 300 bots per hour. As some of these bots are played much more than mo high-ranked bots, may be several hours of someone from organizers can speed up the whole queue significantly.
I understand all minuses of manual detecting approach but now it seems there are no other approaches except "to wait 1-2 days when ranks get stabilized and apply cutoff".
I'm sure other players will be glad to help with finding such bots - so you even could not to find them yourselves but only check bots found and remove them.
