This was the worst thing ever.

Since the publishing of the code my motivation has hit rock bottom.
I was not one of the persons to download the code and it really bothers me that there are people out there, with a better working bot, which they don't deserve.

I have tried to pick myself up and tell me that it does not matter, there will always be people out there which are smarter/better/more whatever;
I do not mind losing to those people, but losing to script kiddies, that just socks.

So currently I am carefully considering whether I still want to put the effort in, but since I have not touched the code in a few days, I think the choice has been made.

*Sigh*

Yupp still seems to be room for improvement from the current top bots.

Although it's definitely better for the competition not to publish compilable code directly, I don't think it's such a huge error either. People who don't know how to program won't know how to translate that bot from C# or how to build much on it; people who do know will be able to infer a lot from his algorithm description anyway as it is now (which is good because it allows people who enter the competition at a later date a reasonable chance to catch up).

Also, his bot/algorithm isn't the "end of all", there are other ways to do it of course. (Although major things such as predicting future etc. you will probably find in every good bot.)

Maybe post in the contest and forum rules the expectation that code is not shared until after the contest is over. Pseudocode and algorithm discussion is fine.

Would be curious if doing a diff on the source code held by the contest servers, if you find any blatant plagiarism. Or maybe post whether accounts have 'x' percent exact same code as other accounts removing factors like whitespace(for non-python code anyway :)
