Recently I was wondering how to make this warlight contest more popular.
The biggest problem to start coding own bot is in my opinion motivation. Who wants to write parser from scratch acording to specification mentioned in "getting started" ? My friends from university were very excited about this contest but longer they had to spend getting in, less excited they were.
As long as lots of programming languages are supported, there should be more ways to communicate the Conquest engine. By "ways" I mean protocols. For me for example best one could be JSON. In PHP parser should take exactly 1 line of code. Another languages probably also prefer some protocols over other ones. It takes some work on the engine side but imagine how much you can help potential bot makers.

That's what the starter bots are for. Not even 1, but 0 lines of code to get going.
