Hello dear coders,
We've had the Warlight AI Challenge online for some time now and people are coding their bots like there is no tomorrow. We think you guys are ready for some of that prize money now!
On Sunday May 25, 23.59 local time (UTC+2/GMT+2), your bot that is in the ranked competition cannot be updated anymore. We will temporarily remove the "Set to ranked" button. We will also reset all the ratings back to 1400. Now, the bots have exactly (and I mean exactly) 1 week to play matches and try to win as many as possible. After that week, on Sunday June 1, 23.59 local time, we will select the top 24 bots on the leaderboard to progress to the Semi-finals. After the semi-finals are done, the 8 remaining bots will get one of the prizes.
Check out this post to see how the finals work exactly.
The semi-finals will be played per round, 1 or 2 per day. The matches and progress will be visible from the Warlight AI Challenge finals page. The finals will be viewable in a similar fashion.
Good luck to you all and have fun coding!
