I noticed that the time settings are only sent to the bot at the start. During the turns, there is no feedback of the amount of time the system reckons the bot has left.
A popular chess bot system informs the bot of the time system at the start of a game, but also informs the bot of the time left at the start of each turn. Something like:
timeBank 5000 500 time 5000 go time 4673 go
I can imagine this is a safer system, since a 1 ms rounding error can lead to a fifth of the time available for a turn after 100 rounds.
Not that I think that the available time is that tight.

I see I came to conclusions too quickly. I see the Action request actually includes the available time.
