Hello, I'm completely new here, and I was wondering how does the rating of a bot work. Well it's pretty obvious that 2 bots face each other and the winner get some points, the real question that I want to ask is when does the evaluation start?
The thing is, I uploaded the starter bot, so I can get a fill of how the process of uploading a bot works, and everything was allright (of course), but the thing is that I was immediately ranked with 1400 score, which I guess is the default. Now it might take some time until I finish my real bot, and in this time I will loose a lot of score with the default bot, so can I reset my ranking or uploade a new bot that resets its score? I did not finde any intel of how this part works.

The ranking happens after each game and your rank cannot be reset by yourself. However, when you upload an improved bot and start to win more games you'll rise through the rankings pretty quickly.
Also, any loss of points at this stage of the contest doesn't matter at all. We'll disable bot submissions and reset everyone's score at a certain point before the finals commence, so everyone'll get a fair chance of moving on to the finals.
