I adapted my C# bot from the original Warlight AI competition to handle the new territory distribution and uploaded it to see what else will break.
So far, the answer is the server compilation queue! I've been in the compilation queue over 15 minutes with no idea how long it will take! Is the queue stuck or broken for C# bots?
Also, when I first tried to drag-and-drop my .zip to upload it, the tab changed and it got uploaded as an original Warlight AI Challenge bot. That one is also stuck in the compilation queue (even though I didn't mean to upload it there at all).
Finally, in the original Warlight AI challenge, I just zipped up my entire Visual Studio project folder and deleted the .bin and .obj files so I could easily keep archives of my old bots and didn't have to break the directory structure. In the old contest, the server seemed to have no trouble finding the .cs files in the subdirectories and ignoring the miscellaneous Visual Studio files (.sln .csproj etc). Is this still the case, or will this cause problems? (I guess I'll find out once my bot compiles.)

Thanks for fixing this! (Even if just resetting the compile queue fixed the rest.)
Zipping the entire Visual Studio project directory works fine for me (with C#), and this morning the compile queue worked and gave me the results of the practice match pretty quickly.
I'm looking forward to more matches over the coming week, but for now the practice match shows me plenty of improvements to make to my bot.

I'm new here and I submited a C# translation of the simple Java example just to see how the submission works and it's been stuck in the compilation queue for a whole day now.
My zip file only contains two files: Main.cs and Bot.cs.
Am I missing something or is there a problem with the queue?

Try uploading it again please. I don't know what happened because the queue hasn't been stuck the whole day. If it still doesn't work let me know

I tried again and it worked instantly, thank you.
