What will happen after deadline for submission?

  1. The website will no longer accept new bots
  2. It will accept new bots but not update the leaderboard
  3. Everything will be normal.


If it’s like last year, it will no longer accept new bots and everyone’s last submissions will replay the leaderboard from zero over the course of a week or so, to determine final standing.


Like Loki said, submissions will be closed, the bots rating will be reset, and games will then play for about a week.

As the week progresses, lower rated bots will be progressively cutoff and stop playing games so that the top bots end up with the most games in order to get the most accurate ranking for them.
