It is unfair to play maps only on one side

Hi,
It is unfair to play maps only on one side, be the map symmetric or asymmetric. Because not every bot acts equally regardless of starting point, even on a symmetric map.

If they don't act the same that's their problem.
For example it's really weird to say that a map is unfair since northbot always starts on top and it always looses.

Make your strategy direction independent.

I agree it is problem of the bot. But I'm saying if two bots are defective in the same way, it is fair for them to come to a draw, rather than a random win based on their initial position. If bots play both sides, chance of draw is much higher in such situations.
