Just realised that the old thread is closed for new posts due to being "to old".



Come, someone challenge me please. In movies always the good guys win.

I'll try to make a bot from JavaScript; I have more knowledge of it than before and able to sort of get the starter bot.

How do you test bots locally?

Can we have a showmatch after the AI challenge is open? I'll gladly play against a bot to test if it's really good.

I hope that was intended as a joke. I would be surprised if the best AI in the competition could beat a player who is rated 1400-1600 on the 1v1 ladder!

Don't underestimate them, you'll play on random created maps with settings you proably won't be used to, I'd except good players to beat it. However, 1400-1600 players who still attack wastelands etc may not be better. You can always watch the games on the site, all of them are there, and judge the level for yourself.

My recommendation is that after the challenge is over, whichever bot wins, we set up a showmatch and we analyse whether or not the bot actually plays well. In addition to that, in one seasonal ladder where there will be no cards, the bot could play as a player, probably disguised as a normal player (program that it says gl hf in the beginning and gg in the end and have it make moves using random intervals of time) and after the season it could be announced that a specific account was a bot. I haven't seen any of the bots games so I'm curious if it'll have any chanec against a human being.

My bot doesn't know how to deploy. Is it something to do with how I modified it? If its something to do with modification, I still have the original starter bot.

Edit: I found this out from http://theaigames.com/competitions/warlight-ai-challenge-2/games/5537dc8e1c687b3f6eb2973a.

that happens because the bot crashes (ie. takes too much time).
go to the game log, http://theaigames.com/competitions/warlight-ai-challenge-2/game-log/DanWL_Warlight2/1
there's an output button which should show error messages

In all likelihood. I recommend looking at the debug output.
- Stack Trace --> an error gets thrown
- Simply nothing --> Probably an infinite loop, can check with System.err at beginning of each turn
Or maybe there is another mistake in your code that leads to no output without anything crashing.

What does "pick_starting_region 10000 3 9 10 13 16" mean? I know its time in ms, but where does 100000 come from?

I noticed for all of the rounds it returned "no moves". It only works when choosing territories.

the 10'000 is simply because the timeout limit is 10 sec; ignore that.

you can see how the input/output is here http://theaigames.com/competitions/warlight-ai-challenge-2/getting-started

so pick_starting_region 10000 3 9 10 13 16 means your bot have to pick starting regions and 3,9,10,13,16 is the possible territories to pick. I recommend you print the bots output, use System.err.print() to do that.

Your error dump is private, others can't see.
