Roughly 50% of the games between the two top bots, HalesJewett and TripleBot, end in a draw, which is a bit boring... We can expect bots to become better and better, which probably means more and more draws.
A rule change proposal is that if the game is a draw by the current rules, the bot that has won most small squares wins (so a draw is still possible, but less likely).

Curiously of their last 6 games 5 would be draw even with this rule :)
It is an interesting proposal though.

I personally don't like this rule because it encourages a passive play style.
On top of that I think it would give red an even bigger advantage.
