This year task — CodeWars

Write an artificial intelligence to control a large amount of vehicles, compete with other participants in the championship!

Detailed description of the task can be found in “CodeWars” championship and Rules sections.

Let's register! Quick start

Russian AI Cup — open artificial intelligence programming contest. Test yourself writing a game strategy! It’s simple, clear and fun!

The sixth Russian AI Cup championship is named CodeWars. You are to program an artificial intelligence to control a large amount of vehicles. Your strategies will compete with each other in the Sandbox and the championship. You can use any of programming languages: C++, Java, C#, Python, Pascal or Ruby. The Sandbox is already open. Good luck!

We welcome both novice programmers — students and pupils, as well as professionals. Writing your own strategy is very simple: basic programming skills are enough.

Championship schedule

  • Sandbox: open for everyone from November 6, 21:00 UTC till December 24, 21:00 UTC; first and fourth weeks will be beta-testing, system instability and significant changes in the rules are possible during these periods.
  • Round 1: November 24, 21:00 UTC – November 26, 21:00 UTC.
  • Round 2: December 8, 21:00 UTC – December 10, 21:00 UTC.

The end of the beta test

The first week of the beta test came to an end. Together we did a great job to improve the game, fixed many existing bugs and balanced the rules of the game.

Among the other, we added two new actions to the game:

  • SCALE to change size of units’ formation;
  • TACTICAL_NUCLEAR_STRIKE to request a local nuclear strike.

Please re-download the latest version of language packs and various utilities. Please note that the complete rules of the game, language packs and the Local runner utility are also published on Github. There you will be able to track the changes and also to see a changelog.

We won’t make changes that could affect the behavior of the strategy in the game till the end of Round 1 and the beginning of the second beta week. However, we will continue to fix known bugs, and we reserve the right to change the mechanics of the game beyond the rules if we deem these changes necessary.

The rating of all participants in the Sandbox has been reset.

Due to the large volume of work we almost don’t have time to support custom packages. We will try to fix this omission in the next week.

However, you already can develop and submit your AI using wonderful D language. Thanks Gassa for it. The devkit is available on Github.


Open beta

We are pleased to welcome all the participants of the Russian AI Cup: CodeWars 2017 open beta!

The beta test will run until 21:00 UTC on 12 November. Please note that at this time we can make a significant changes in the rules, scoring system and any other aspects of the championship. This week we will try to fix possible mistakes, optimize performance and make any other necessary improvements. The ratings will be reset after this week of beta.

Some links on the website are not working, including links to Github. We will fix it within a few days.

Good luck and have fun!
