beta testers

Postby dimkadimon » Wed Jun 29, 2011 4:46 am

It looks like beta testers are getting quite a lot of valuable experience (1-2 months) in ants. I really hope that they will not be allowed to compete as soon as the competition starts.

When will this competition start? It looks like everything is ready to go, so what is stopping it? I have been waiting for the start since like March!

While I agree with you the beta testers are getting too much of a head start (and more every day) I don't see how you will stop them from competing. People will just use their own server (like the beta server) or TCP.

Also, nothing is stopping you from using it as well.

AND: the beta phase will be over sooner if more people are helping to resolve the remaining issues.

2 things you have to remember

1. Nothing is stopping users from entering into the beta phase (It isn't a closed beta).
2. That the game keeps evolving (Now with, IMO, ridiculous maps etc) so we aren't getting that much of a headstart. The way I programmed my bot a month or so ago, not needs to be completely re-written for how the maps are now being generated.

Where from did you get the information that beta testers will not be able to participate in the contest?
What stops you from joining the beta phase?
You mean you're here around from March and haven't even tried to write your own bot?
Anyone who has found out about this contest earlier has a head-start, because you can already start writing your bot basing on the rules that are currently settled or writing utility solutions like path finding or spreading out/exploration and it doesn't matter if you join the beta or not. I'm sure there's some people who haven't joined beta, but are working on their bots.

What is happening? Today I accidentally visited Ants Beta and it no longer says Beta. The rules have changed and the rankings have been reset. Can someone please tell me what is going on? Has the contest started already?

We are in the final beta stage.
The contest is supposed to be launched on Sunday, 2nd of October.
The rules indeed have changed to level the chances, so that beta testers do not have too much of a headstart.
The rankings will get reset once again at the real start.
