A benchmark is a collection of warriors against which a Corewar program under development can be optimised. A good benchmark normally has a similar balance to the hill. The test results should pinpoint any weakness in the warrior being tested.
Wilfiz is a decent coresize 8000 benchmark and is recommended for both beginners and experienced players alike.
