Just wondering, what is the deadline to submit bots?

There is no deadline to submit bots. Once the finals start somewhere in the end of May (exact date will be announced later), the top ranking bots will be selected to go through to the finals. This competition will still be available even when the finals are over.

But the bots in the final will be fixed?

Yes. The top 24 or 48 bots at that point in time will qualify for the semi-finals.

Is it too much to ask to "reveal" the number of bots you would like in the competition for a final 48, or did you not decide yet?

We haven't decided yet. When we know, you'll know.

If you take the currently top ranked, it's not really fair to people who just updated from a crappy bot to an okay bot (like myself).
I've had a losing bot in the pool for quite some time, so now I have just have to wait to see if I gain enough points before the arbitrary cutoff date, even though I'm winning most games now.
Please at least consider resetting the scores and waiting for a week before determining the final contestants. Or rank bots by win% in the last X days.

The bot submission deadline and the exact rules regarding the finals have been announced. You can submit your bot until May 25th, 23:59:59 CEST (UTC+2). At this date all rankings'll be reset and the bots'll play for a week before progressing to the finals.
We'll re-enable the "set to ranked" button after the winner has been announced so everyone can continue playing.
