This competition gives you an opportunity to test your programming skills, by creating an artificial intelligence (strategy) controlling a team of units in a special world.
In each game you are to compete against another player’s strategy. You team’s goal — is to gain score. Team who has more score is the winner. Game can also be tied if both teams have same score in the end.
In Round 1 you are to learn the rules of the game. To simplify things, there will be no fog of war in this stage. Also, you will be given a base for each unit type in the beginning of the game, so you can start gathering resources and attacking your opponent right away. You can still experiment with buildings to prepare for next stages.
In Round 2 you have to learn building. In the beginning you will only have builders. You will need to build bases for other types of units. Also, fog of war will now be enabled so you will have to do some exploration before confronting the enemy. The task is further complicated that after summarizing the Round 1, the part of the weak strategies will be eliminated and you will have to confront stronger opponents.
Finals is the most important stage. After the selection, held following the results of the first two stages, the strongest participants will be remained. The games in the finals are going to be 1v1. Besides that, if there is only one player left in the game, they are given enough score points to win the game.
