Some good news for the last week.
The performance of Ruby and Python 2 and 3 clients was improved. While Ruby and Python 2 received a very small speed increase, the boost of Python 3 is more significant. In turn, fans of Python 2 had the opportunity to run their strategies in an alternate way, namely PyPy 2 5.8.0+. This can improve the execution speed of some strategies. However the NumPy and SciPy library are not available. Choose wisely. Unfortunately, PyPy 3 does not have official support in Windows, except for the old slow version.
We noticed that after achieving significant advantage in score points, many strategies try not to force events and simply wait for the end of game time. In this regard, the rules were updated.
Now, since the middle of the game, a strategy with fewer units regularly gains a small amount of score points. So to say, the bonus for survival. We hope that now the games will become more dynamic and interesting.
