How fast can a Bot get into the Top 100?

Postby Zaph » Fri Dec 02, 2011 1:53 am

I've been wondering, given that each submission gets reset to zero and has to work it's way back into position, how long does it take to:
a) get back into position
b) get into the top 100 (assuming you're bot is that strong in the first place)

First, part a)
I've graphed my versions () and can say that after 30 games you will be pretty close to a static position (as much as you can be with a game with much randomness). That's about 5 days at the rate of 1 game every 240 minutes. Baring some good/bad luck, you may creep upwards a point or so in skill but not much more from there - so it's a fair time to upload a new version.

Part b) is more interesting: How many games does it take to get into the top 100 ?

Looking at some very recent bots:
If you've got an awesome bot, and can string the wins together, you can get there in under 10 games!

recently uploaded a new version, he went from a new version to 81st place in just 7 games !
got there in 8 games
got into the top 100 today after just 9 games

pguillory also made the top 10 in just 15 games, very impressive! Probably the best recently uploaded bot we've seen on the official server (the TCP servers have some pretty cool bots running on them)

What does all this mean... not much. But it does mean that you could reach the top 100 in 10 games, which is a little under 2 days at current rates (excluding yesterdays slowdown)

How am I doing ? My last version was just short of the top 100 after 24 games, and I've just uploaded a new one which might be slightly better (although it's hard to say for sure). Not bad, but a long way short of those mentioned above!

By my count, my most recent submission (ChrisH v5) made it to #53 in seven games and and to #8 in 13 games. But I agree that pguillory v26 is probably a better bot overall.
