Final and timeouts

Postby lama3oid » Tue Dec 20, 2011 10:52 pm

Guys, I'm already tired of posting my problems here. Especially when all my topics/posts were left without any answer from administration. First I had game rate lower than most of people have -- about 1 game in 24 hours for few days, then someone broke C# and my skill was reset to zero, then appeared problem with timeout, but it disappeared after some time, then finals started and I had only 6 games when more than half of players had 10-15 and now timeouts again.
I undestand that it's complex enough system and everything could happen, but why most of other players are doing well when I have problems one after one and nobody answers why it's happening ?
Feeling myself like a moaner, but don't know, what else to do.

Now again, timeouts. from my 5 latest games 3 were ended with timeout. amount of my ants in these games: 63, 25, 26.
why it's happening ? there are games on the server where my bot succesfully played with 400+ ants and a lot of battles in the same time. I can only imagine how many skill points I will lose because of that. And I'm sure it touches not only me.
I we had this problem from the beginning, some of us would leave the competition, some of us would chose another language.
but I already spent tens of hours for my bot and it was playing normally, but then timeouts started.

I really hope at least this time someone will answer me... all of us.

Should be at least #3 or higher, but took 6-th place because of it. And no answer.
In the neighbour topic Janzert said next: "I want to make sure that nobody is unfairly left down in the mass of starter bots", but seems, nobody cares about other problems :(

Hi lama3oid. I wrote bot on java. Several weeks ago I have also a lot of timeouts, and can't undestany why. Testing on bot input from timeouted games shows that my bot works fast enough to not timeout. I started to think of some mystic, - maby this is GC starting in some point stops execution.. But then I accidentaly found out that can make sampling profiling (using hprof). And, found tons of slow code! After fixing it bot start to play in average 40% faster and all timouts gone. I don't know, maybe your case is different, but this was my expirience..

page 2: 4/50 timeout
from my point of view this can't be proof "problem is not on server"
