The Easter Core War Tournament will be held on 27th March using CWS'94 Redcode in a medium process multiwarrior core. Players may enter up to two warriors, maximum length 25 instructions.
All entries will take part in a multiwarrior qualifier with the 10 highest scoring entries advancing to the final. The highest scoring warrior in the final will be awarded the $50 first prize. The $25 second prize will be awarded to the highest scoring warrior in the qualifier.
The score formula used will be -= 144/(S*S) (144 points for a solo win, 36 points for a two-way tie, 16 points for a three-way tie, 9 points for a four-way tie, etc).
