I've heard rumors that there's bots with FIreworks Mode. As in, they launch lots of ships at the end when they're sure they win, to make a flashy endgame.
Can anyone provide me links to such games/bots?

Please don't use "fireworks". It slows down the server both in terms of processing and also in terms of making longer games, costing the contest organizers more $$$ and reducing everybody else's ability to get in more matches.

I like your point, haha. And may I add: There are quite a few bots now that don't execute in 10 to 100 ms, but instead search for a best solution for almost a second. So a quick fireworks bot may execute in 20 ms, see a win on turn 100 and run 20 fireworks turns and a deep searching bot just ends the game on turn 105.
800ms*105 = 84 cpu seconds
20ms*120 = 2,4 cpu seconds
I don't have fireworks or a deep search algorithm, but as long as you generally execute a fast code path while doing fireworks I don't see a problem - except that the enemy might still deep search while it is outnumbered 10:1 :lol:
