Just wondering if it would be possible to install the numpy package for python onto the game server?
sudo apt-get install numpy
should be sufficient on debian based systems or
pip install numpy

Numpy should be working now (I fixed it a couple of days ago). If it's still not working please send me a link to the error log.

Well this caused me a big headache this day, but finally numpy is working...

Numpy is awesome! Now I'm starting to rely on it being available in my code. Can we expect it to stay available throughout the entire competition? Just making sure. What do you think jim? Thanks!

Yes it will be available forever

@jim Are there any other packages installed? What version of NumPy is it?

Annoying question, but why would you choose Python for game programming. IMHO using Python you are not competitive from the start. It is just too slow for these kinds of things.

It's true Python is a lot slower, but 500ms is a relatively long time to compute a next move, so I think it will be possible to be competitive with it.

Sure you can be in top 20. Top 5 IMHO is unreachable with Python. For your own improvement this is OK :), but not for trying to win.
