You have undoubtedly noticed that The AI Games has had a few cosmetic changes since the last time you visited. We are very proud to welcome you on the renewed site. A lot has changed and it is not just the looks, because we've added a lot of stuff that will greatly improve the user experience.
Here is an overview of the larger changes we've made:
- Added a new homepage
- The leaderboard has been improved with more info and stats
- The game log now has a really nice search bar where you can filter by score, date and botnames
- Your profile page has really changed, with a lot more functionality and information about your bots
- We gave Heads up Omaha a new look and that competition is no longer Beta
- Added a FAQ page
- We improved the website performance and it should even continue to improve in the coming time
We hope you will enjoy this new look, but more importantly enjoy coding and watching your bots even more. If you have any suggestions for improvement if you found a bug we would really like to hear it, so just post that in the feedback section of the forum. Any general thoughts are welcome as well by responding on this post.
Thank you and have fun coding!

However I don't know now how to go from leaderbord to bots games.. Possible bug.

You're right, there's no direct link from the leaderboards to filtered game logs at the moment. We opted to leave the links out as the game log now has filtering functions and is one click away from the leaderboards.
We'll find a way to make the links play nice with the newly designed leaderboards and add them back in if more players feel they're missing the direct links.

The site looks nice now. It's not that I care super much about details like having to do a couple clicks more, but since it's always nicer to get some criticism instead of silence after hard work:
- I also missed the option to jump from the leaderbord to the played games of my bot.
The ELO rating for the warlight AI challenge isn't adjusted to an average of 1400 anymore since Jim put some low ranked bots out of the competition.
I tried to search with the phrase score>1600 but didn't get any results.
I think most players won't use the full power of the new filtering function and they are only interested in seeing the last games of their own bot / a bot they are interested in.
In the institutes ranking warlight is now at the bottom and institutes with only 1 bot are top ranked
The bar showing your wins / losses / draws seems quite pointless to me since if your bot isn't top 10 / bottom 10 you should always end up with a 50% win rate.

Few more bugs: 1) In dynamic bot panel which appears after click on bot: AdsRiskbot Netherlands Total Score 4284<- strange number 2) Games played but ratings seems freeze .

My bot hasn't played his test match for quite a while now (>12h). It just says input test successfull. I have the problem since the new website version.

Thank you for your feedback, we're aware that there are still some bugs here and there. They will be fixed in the coming week. And GreenTea, the Total Score is the score for the user and the Global Rank rank is the rank of the user, same as you can see on your own profile.

@b00n12: there are still some minor issues with the backend which causes the queue to get stuck sometimes, will also get fixed in the coming week. Upload your bot again if it's still stuck.

I have also had issues with my bot not playing it's test match. Have re-uploaded once or twice throughout the day just to check. Sitting on 'Input Test Success'.
