Let the games begin!

Postby dimkadimon » Sun Nov 28, 2010 10:33 am

The final tournament has finally begun! How exciting.

So far the top 100 doesn't look anything like the top 100 we have been used to seeing. But it is still early days. Let's make some predictions for this contest. In the past, the top 100 bots predominantly played other top 100 bots and hence were specifically optimized to play them. It might turn out that these bots don't play so well against some of the "weaker" strategies, ie bots that were ranked 100 to 300. So I am expecting to see some changes in the final top 100. As far as the winner goes, I just cannot go past bocsimacko - his bot is outstanding, it loses very rarely and beats strong opponents convincingly.

What are your thoughts?

Hey iouri_ gratz!! and sorry that I did not met your expactations ;)

I did a small but stupid change on my code on the 26th which caused a lot of timeouts (especially against the low ranked enemies - which costs a lot of points).

But anyway I think your bot and the other top10s were just better :)
