It seems pretty important that the rules be set fairly soon / early about how many turns there will be and how the winner is determined at the specified time (number of ships vs growth rate vs some metric that combines them). It completely changes the end game strategy and when end game strategies would become relevant.

I vote for longer turns, but regardless I think we should get official word on what it'll be played at.
If someone is coding under the assumption of 1000 turns they might be at a huge disadvantage.

Dimecoin, If we increase the number of turns from 200 to 400, we half the number of total games we can run during the contest. So that's a pretty big effect.

200 is enough, just change your strategy according to that... If each bot use 1 second to compute, a game would long 400 seconds : more than 6 minutes. If there are 1000 bots, running only 1 match for each bot would take 1 day ! And you are asking to double this time...

Just another vote for longer games. At least 300 turns.

If there a problem to handle many games then just find a good way slowly remove forgotten weak bots from the challenge.

I vote against a higher turn limit. If the winner isn't clear after 200 turns, the players haven't been doing anything in the mean time and deserve to be cut off. Just play through some games between top bots, and it is clear 200 turns is more than enough to decide a game.
