Yeah that is probably true. I think it will be cool when the day comes that a bot correctly uses all the units for the race at the right time like say a protoss makes a dark archon to maelstrom a big muta flock and then storms them with nearby high templar and things like that. Still a long ways awa...

Actually I think killer bot is non competitive so it can not win prize money. If there is one criticism I have against a lot of bots such as killer bot is that they generally always open the same build against a certain race but that makes them vulnerable because they are predictable. Here is replay...

sscai winner predictions

What bot will take the SSCAI tournament and why? I think killer bot playing zerg is pretty strong, but a few of the new bots might have a chance because killer bot seems kind of vulnerable in early game since its always the same build order. I would like to see SSCAI get all the author's permissions...

I know easier said then done, but killerbot would be a lot better then it is if it simply had the micro from the overmind bot for its mutalisks. It seems some units like mutalisks or dragoons could have the same micro in every bot it never really changes so why have each bot reinvent that? Killerbot...

[quote name='krasi0' date='25 October 2012 - 08:08 AM' timestamp='1351181323' post='11211'] This is exactly marian devecka's Z bot. It has some good muta + zergling rush tactic. You can use replay tool from BWAPI to fix the reps [quote name='abcdefg' date='24 October 2012 - 01:39 AM' timestamp='1351...

What bot is this KillerBot_2 coming out of nowhere with 85 percent wins and highest ELO as zerg. Is the DLL for this bot around to download? I noticed a few of the replays of it I tried to watch crash with win32 errors so they are corrupted somehow. The marian_devecka bot from scai site has pretty h...

Maybe im wrong here but it seems like bwapi is regularly updated and improved which is good to make it more stable, but some of the tools bots need like map analysis or libraries to make common tasks easier such as bwsal seem to lag behind. Maybe better pathfinding that is faster would help bots a l...

Yeah the challenge is to make a bot that is not scripted but can adapt and react to new or different strategies so it does not have any major weaknesses. I know easier said then done right? I thought aiur did a good job by sometimes throwing in cannon rushes if the circumstances were right. A lot of...

Oh yeah I mean I basically agree with you. The bots play a pretty low level right now and the campaign is well beyond their abilities too since a lot of the same skills in 1v1 need to be used in the campaign like you said.

Here is me beating skynet that won 2012 by just a fast contain on tau cross. I dont play brood war anymore so lets ignore my terrible play and lack of any build order. It shows how a bad player can beat skynet with cheesey strat though and its on 3 player map. I have done it more then once so it wor...
