There are only a few hours left to submit your final Halite III bots.
Halite finals begin tonight, January 22, 11:59:59PM (“midnight”) EST, and run for just under one week, to January 29, 11:59:59AM (“noon”) EST. The games played during the finals period will determine the final rankings, and thus the winner, of the Halite III competition.
Bot submission is closed during the finals period. Shortly after finals begin, all matchmaking will be paused and all bot ranks reset.
Once bot ranks have been reset, finals matchmaking for all bots in the competition will begin. Over the course of the finals period, the lowest ranking bots will be systematically removed.
The final 150 remaining bots will play until the close of the finals period, to determine high-confidence final rankings.
