The challenge is free and open to any individuals around the globe. We'll help you get started with a step-by-step tutorial and all the resources you'll need to create your very first bot. From there, we welcome you to use any tools at your arsenal to improve your bot before play-offs!
The game will be compatible with any scripting language of choice. However we'll only be able to provide starter templates for Python and other popular programming languages. Let us know what you're using over at our Discord.
No, this challenge is all about your programming and problem solving skills. We've found previous submissions to be a mix of algorithmic as well as AI/ML-based approaches. But if you've already got some skills in AI/ML and think you can apply them in this challenge - go ahead!
For simplicity, we use the word 'team' to mean any 1 - 5 participants entering the tournament together. While we encourage you to team up with others, you absolutely can be a superstar and join the tournament on your own. All prizes are split between the team. Once you join the community Discord group, you can use the 'looking-for-team' channel to find other people who want to team up.
