Rule clarification

We are not allowed to use more than one thread. Are we allowed any network communication? I assume not, but thought I'd check!

I extremely doubt it.

I'm pretty sure nobody wants a "bot" that was actually just an interface to the real bot operating from a massive server farm. Or the ability of players to "remote control" their bot in person, or to continue to customize their bots after the final submission cutoff and switch it's behavior depending on the opponent's identity.

Nope. No network communication at all. None.

Maybe this rule has to be changed in the future.Today the ICRAC published a call to prohibit this kind of "autonomous targeting".

Lol.

Did you hear about the military drone that got loose over Washington DC in the last couple weeks?
