Another round of thanks to all the contest organizers. As an AI noob, and a programmer with average skills, it was a great learning experience for me. And ofcourse, people like a1k0n, Memetix, Darhuuk have earned special cheers for discussing wonderful ideas even before the finals! I can't wait for the next challenge! Though I don't have much hope of finishing in the top 500 in this context, I'll try my best next time.

Apart from the AI concepts, I also learnt that slower (interpreted) languages should be used only in the first 2 weeks for experimentation. If you stick to them because of ease of development, you might end up regretting later when speed matters!

EDIT: I don't want to get involved in arguments of the kind "your algorithm is more important than choice of language". I know that makes sense, but for good combat in this contest, I believe every millisecond saved counts. And as Frantic as pointed out below, some language limitations are hard to overcome.

you should just take a look into top 100-200 and see how good "php/lua/fortran/etc./" algorithm works much better as tonns of bad "C/C++/Java/etc." bots

p.s. sorry for all "C/C++/Java/etc." "php/lua/fortran/etc./" developers in advance

I (as PHP bot owner) should agree with you: same logic in different languages can get totally different rank (mostly from performance)

Something strange appears with my Skill calculation.

Both times it goes up, but the resulting skill number is less than the starting skill number.

Is this normal?
