Ants Scoring Change

Postby McLeopold » Tue Nov 15, 2011 7:31 pm

If a bot times out or crashes, they will immediately lose all starting hill points. The hills are still available to be razed by other bots for the 2 points.

This is to prevent bots from timing out purposely to prevent their score from going down.

Everyone should download the new set of tools as soon as they can for proper testings.

Would anything bad happen if we don't download a new set of tools?

Maybe if a bot times out or crashes, set him zero points?

Yay, now the scoring is more consistent. I think this will get rid of most cases where it is beneficial to suicide.
