IRC Mini Tournament #01 - Sunday 02 March 2003


An impromptu (and somewhat hectic) mini tournament was organised on IRC: competitors having just 15 minutes to write a warrior for coresize 80, maxprocesses 80, cycles 800, maxlength 5. Altogether, 8 players participated, with Christian Schmidt claiming first place. If either your browser or yourself doesn't like tables, the results are also available in results.txt.
