Extending the challenge after the final?

Postby pierrejoel » Wed Feb 24, 2010 12:33 pm

Is there any chance that you will leave the site in a working state after the final? I have invested quite a lot of time in my bot, and I wouldn't mind playing with it a bit more, since I haven't had the time to explore all my ideas yet. I bet some other players would be interested, too.

I like the idea of a forever-running Tron bot tournament server. But I think current system is not a good one. (Problems with rankings algorithm, server responsiveness, timing, selecting bots and maps for matches, ...)

There are too many low quality bots on the current server, which is probably why it is so slow. Despite the fact that they said they removed all starter kits, some of the bots I have fought against looks like wall bots. It would probably be best if we force everyone to resubmit their programs if we are to continue running the server.

A decent matching algorithm (swiss) would take care of the "too many dumb bots" problem, since only dumb bots would end up playing other dumb bots.
