Announcing the WarLight AI Challenge

WarLight is partnering with to bring you the WarLight AI Challenge! This allows you to write our own WarLight bot and send it into combat with other people’s bots.

It’s a ton of fun, but there are some serious prizes available too, with the winner getting €1024! ($1400)

Here’s the basic idea of how it works:

1. Sign up at
2. Write an AI bot in C, C#, C++, Go, Java, PHP or Python (if you want to use a different language, please request it.) Your bot will choose what territories it wants to start in, where to deploy armies, and issue attack/transfer orders, just like in WarLight.
3. Upload your bot to your profile at
4. Watch your bot match up against other bots in the interactive viewer.
5. If you lose any matches, figure out what your bot could have done better in that situation. You can see a log of the match which you can paste back into your bot, so you can easily debug what you code was doing in any situation.
6. Improve it, and repeat.

Check out all the details Good luck!
