Lone Survivor vs Turn Limit

Postby Parasprites » Wed Nov 09, 2011 6:20 pm

When bots time out, it seems like pretty much luck whether Lone Survivor or Turn Limit will happen first. You get absurd situations like this
http://ants.fluxid.pl/replay.27669

Theoretically, given infinite time Yellow would probably eventually win. However, there's no way yellow could win before the turn limit. So the fact that blue timed out when he did completely reversed the outcome of the game.

These cutoff rules seem a bit unfair at times.

I don't get your point. Both opponents timed out so... what should be the result in your opinion?

Well under the current cutoff rules, there are situations in which it is beneficial to intentionally suicide or timeout.

3 player game, each starts with 6 hills

A razes 7 hills and loses 5
B razes 6 hills and loses 2 and times out
C razes nothing and loses all 6 hills, but still has ants left

If the game reaches the turn limit, then A will take second place, behind B. However, by intentionally timing out, A can take first place.
