I voted no extension. Personally I'd like to have the original limit enforced as that was part of the rules and I don't have any more time come next week.

That said, the final tournament shall take place when the ranking system is ready. If there is a time gap between the deadline and the tournament, that's fine, but the rankings must be very good.

I think this is normal to keep the original deadline.

but we always can ask for an extension after de finals.

I'm a big fan of meaningful deadlines. Yes, the ranking system sucks, but that shouldn't cause a delay. Yes, the pairing system sucks, but that shouldn't cause a delay. Everyone has had as much time as promised to get their bot ready, even though the test games didn't provide optimal feedback for further improvement. The organizers never promised to give the clearest indications to developers of how to make their bots smarter.

The one thing that should cause a delay, however, is that the format of the final tournament still sucks. The official rules declare that there will be one huge round robin among all entrants. As I argue strenuously in the , there is a much better way to choose a winner, one much less dependent on luck, and actually taking less time to complete. The submission deadline for bots should be extended until the organizers are ready to run a decent final tournament with a low chance of a not-best bot lucking into the best score.

I think if the deadline were extended (and an Elo style ladder implemented ASAP), we would see significantly better final entries as a result, which can only be a good thing.

As it is now no top bots have really had many games against other top bots, and the ones they did get were most likely on always draw maps..
