Soccer Tournament: A Challenging New Twist! [3rd Tourney]

Postby Aim Here on Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:41 pm

This is for you hardcore Multiplayer junkies out there. Yes, there are other soccer-like threads out there, but none quite as challenging as this one.

The Goal in this game type is to get the ball into your opponent's goal. Seems pretty straight-forward. The DIFFERENCE, is that you need to do it without pushing your opponent into his own net, thus filling it up. The nets have been blocked off, so most bots will render them useless upon falling inside. This is an experimental gametype, so let me know if you think it's too difficult after a few matches.

Alright, on to THE RULES:
-Only build on your side of the arena
-Only build underneath the horizontal line
-DO NOT build inside the blue lines
-5 powered wheels maximum are allowed per player
-3 unpowered wheels maximum per player
-25 rod maximum per player
DISQUALIFICATIONS:
-Any bot that relies on a large bunch of rods as a weight is disqualified
-Any player that blocks their net is disqualified
-Glitches are an automatic disqualification
-Your bot must be built as a single unit; no throwing pieces
-Don't mess with your opponent's bot: that's what we call bad sportsmanship (a.k.a. cheating)
SUBMISSION PROTOCOL:
-Every player is REQUIRED to post both a link showing the soccer match, as proof of victory, as well as a link to your bot by itself after carefully deleting your opponent. This may seem arbitrary, but doing so lowers the confusion level of "who is who" by quite a bit.

Don't forget, give me any and all feedback!

NEW RULE: Any bot that has not been beaten after 3 days of being posted is hereby declared a "dead end". When this happens, the creator of that bot can start a new battle, with an EASY bot. If that person is nowhere to be found...someone else can do it.

So, without further ado;

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Yay first win! And I like the idea, glad to see a new soccer thread! I would suggest a limit on non-powered wheels.

Good Idea! Should I also place a limit on wooden rods?

I think maybe there should be a rod limit and a wheel limit rather than a total piece limit... But I don't think you need different limits for water and wood rods.

Beat yours! I'm starting to think this gametype is going to be too hard; that took a while!

Montego001, read the rules. You're not allowed to push him into the goal.

I waited 10,000 ticks but it still didn't win. Your bot gets stuck on it's front and the goal ball is trapped underneath it.

Thats weird. For me, The bot and ball fall at the same time,; ball is momentarily trapped but then the bot completely unsticks itself from the other bot and in doing so completes its fall and thusly pushing the ball out from being trapped. Ball then rolls to the goal.

Can anyone else confirm whether this worked on their computer?

And whats the deal with this? Ive noticed this in a few other matches where certain people cannot view the successful match, but others can. It is a browser issue? Mac VS PC thing? A glitch in the FC code? Its really odd that this happens on occasion, the game should run identically regardless of differences in computers.... Anyone know why it does this sometimes?

It has to do with the computation powers of the computer running the design. The more complicated the design, the more likely that different computers will run it differently. I'll accept your bot as beating mine though.

well this is an earlier version of the last one. My bot gets stuck on top, but does push the ball over the top of yours, which then *SLOWLY* rolls over to the goal. Let me know it This one works for you..

Hmm... Maybe I should to impose a height limit. This is the kind of thing I was worried about with this game type. People can build tall wooden bots that are hard to get over, which could get old fast...

You have too many pieces:
- Only 5 powered wheels are allowed
- Only 3 unpowered wheels
- Only 25 rods

This bot is disqualified :(

The reason the build limit is so low, is so that this game (hopefully) doesn't become a competition of who's bot is bigger.

Alright everyone, I think this game is too difficult, so I'm implementing a new rule. Please check the first post for details.
