Actively using multiple processes or OS threads is not allowed. Some language runtimes will not operate without using multiple OS threads so we allow the creation of a limited number. But a bot found to be running active computation on more than one will be disqualified.

Now it's not possible, because created files aren't preserved between matches. My original plan was to make a really simple bot, which would then learn to fight like a spartan due time and experience, but at the moment I only have a fairly simple bot that sucks just as much after ten games as it does now.
