Regarding the cutoff. I was hoping for at least 10-15 games for everyone before starting it. The first cutoff will go up to whatever rank the starter bots end at. More important than game number though I want to make sure that nobody is unfairly left down in the mass of starter bots. I'm working on checking that now. Beyond that it depends on game numbers and time left but the cutoff will be raised to assure the top ranks are accurate. The cutoff will eventually probably end up around rank 500 and pretty certainly not above 250.

Right now looking into rank 6000+ (and even higher) it looks like most starter bots have gathered there already in the meantime. Some starter bots (just quick random check) are found at rank 4400, like http://aichallenge.org/profile.php?user=8600)
One of my friends who essentially used the starter bot and just added pathfinding (for each pair of ants-food like in the tutorial) and timeout handling and no more sophisticated stuff is around rank 1500 already.
Thanks a lot for fixing the game-count issue. While there is still a huge gap, I had some games this night at least.
