My bot loads some files locally in about 2.3 seconds. When the poker competition was run separately, it meant loading this file pretty consistently in roughly 2.8 seconds. This is about the same relative discrepancy I experience in the Warlight competition, which can just be attributed to a difference in processing speed.
However, it is now not rare that it takes 10 seconds to load, invalidating my bot for the match.
- You can either lower the amount of time we have, though in reality giving us more time ensuring things will load in time even considering an unstable/inconsistent environment
- Stabilize the server
I'm aware I could just update my bot to be less accurate or use another method, but that does not help with the actual problem here; the discrepancy between "having 5 initial seconds" and actually not having it in reality.
