Hi dear coders,
The dates for the AI Block Battle finals are known! We will start the lockdown on Sunday May 15, 23.59. As usual, the leaderboard ranks will be reset and you can not update your bot anymore during this time. Exactly 1 week after the lockdown starts, Sunday May 22, 23.59, the top 24 bots in the leaderboard will progress to the semi-finals.
Sunday May 29 the eight bots that have survived the semi-finals will be playing the 'live' finals matches again during the day. At the end we will know which bot will be the winner of the grand prize of 1024 euros!
So make your bot as great as you can possibly make it and good luck!
Have fun coding

Finally :D Some bots seems are making good progress (ortho). It will be interesting. One more question, until how many wins the matches are going to be played?

I'm also looking forward to the finals. Happy to be steady top-10 again. I'm afraid though that winner is more or less determined, as nobody comes close to Hogeris, but nevertheless.

One day left! Anyone still making changes on their bots? I think I will work on it until the last minute; I just hope what I submit is my best version

Err, is the lockdown time local time or GMT?

Finally it's lockdown time! I think I spent too much time on this haha; now I have to study for finals . I'm really excited to see what happens in the semi-final and final phase. Lots of people making last minute updates! I'm curious to see what everyone came up with.

Good luck everybody!
edit: I thought the leaderboard got reset on lockdown?

Ah the leaderboard will be reset soon. I imagine it's done manually so we'd probably have to wait til tomorrow when they are awake or at work to do it.

I do not have a bot in this time, but I have a popcorn :) Good luck to all :)

Lockdown will last till the finals, right? So we can post and discuss our approaches freely?

Heh, great leaderboard..)

My understanding is that we will not have possibility to upload new version. SO proly we can discuss without problems. Feel free to ask me anything about my bot :D BTW, can somebody explain what pairing system is currently used? My bot played just 2 games and some other bots much more.

It seems that computing resources are hard limited

Can somebody please explain how semifinals and finals are played? How these 24 bots are distributed initially. Until how many wins are the games played and so on?
