DaNinja: because the words are the same I guess
Q12: " If a word shares all its prefixes with the other different words, then, to avoid starvation, its prefix will be itself, and all its prefixes cannot be used by other words"
wlesavo: westicles nice, how close you are to char limit?
Westicles: I gave up on hardcoding, just switched to the snake
wlesavo: oh i see
Westicles: I was maxed out around 17 million hardcoded
wlesavo: didnt noticed you changed language
wlesavo: Westicles i think with ideal solution in hardcoding you have to focus on a single test, and on others just gave up a single leetter or smth like "ULR"
Westicles: Yeah, that's I was doing
wlesavo: oh i see. how far you were able to go on a single test?
Westicles: Well, I never had scores over around 800k each with the old approach, so they almost all fit
Westicles: I think we are doing the same thing... 6 deep with 3 directions?
wlesavo: Westicles im at 7 deep
wlesavo: 3 directions, yeah
geppoz: wlesavo what do you mean with "char limit problem"?
The_Auditor: couldn't find which multi was chosen for the winter throne event
wlesavo: geppoz well if you going for hardcode there is only 100k chars for 30 tests around 30-50k moves each
MSmits: geppoz you are only allowed to submit source code with up to 200kb worth of characters
MSmits: it's a bit complicated with some characters using more bytes than others I guess
geppoz: lol are you hardcoding? submission tests are same of IDE ones?
MSmits: geppoz we have many optim arena's you can hardcode. Still means you need a good search though
MSmits: a better search is often worth a million times more calculation time
wlesavo: westicles did, but ended up doing online solution
The_Auditor: if you train a NN and put the weights into an array, that is hard coding, right ?
MSmits: it kind of is
geppoz: no it is not
MSmits: I disagree
geppoz: if you run it vs different test
sofiaaa: ur supposed to start them off with random weights
Q12: The_Auditor A CODE OF ICE AND FIRE this is the winter competition
The_Auditor: the flame war is atarted, my work here is done
MSmits: when you train a NN, you have no idea how the information is actually structured
sofiaaa: i could literally print every weight of every neuron
geppoz: my only question is "why?"
geppoz: why put submission same of tests?
geppoz: that changes all the real purpose of the programming
MSmits: because it is pretty hard to avoid them leaking
MSmits: i dont think it changes things all that much
MSmits: the search you need to get a high score, will still be very similar
MSmits: also, you dont need to share your code CG, if you don't want to
MSmits: not that most people care about that
MSmits: try number shifting. This is an optim explicitly written to be hardcoded
MSmits: you'll see how little it matters that you have infinite calculation time
dbdr: euler is creating every possible type of optim :+1:
MSmits: yeah he really went nuts on the optims
MSmits: which is good i guess, the number of multi arenas compared to optims was lopsided
wlesavo: NS is still probably my favorite game on cg
MSmits: I liked it too, not my favorite but pretty high
The_Auditor: NS ?
wlesavo: number shifting
dbdr: NS is the only euler optim where I'm not #1 :D
MSmits: get crackin
MSmits: the weather's getting colder
dbdr: he spend more energy creating them than solving them
MSmits: perfect time for some cpu heat
dbdr: yes, I was thinking that, heating soon needed again :D
MSmits: in 10 years half of my country's energy consumption will be data centers
wlesavo: wow new multi from trictrac, looks really nice
dbdr: is that a precise prediction?
The_Auditor: i create all my CPU + GPU heat on Folding@home
MSmits: it's nuts
MSmits: google and microsoft are placing huge data centers in my country
dbdr: iceland is great for datacenters because they have cheap geothermal energy
MSmits: we have wind
dbdr: and probably cooling is easier too :D
MSmits: they are placing them next to wind parks
dbdr: wind is nice, but you need to invest a lot, lots of space and at some point replace them
The_Auditor: currently Folding@home works on covi19 proteins
MSmits: and they whack birds
MSmits: this will drive bird evolution
dbdr: less than cats
dbdr: that's a fake argument I think
MSmits: might be
MSmits: link to trictrac's game
MSmits: nvm got it
dbdr: what game?
wlesavo: pvp tetris :slight_smile:
dbdr: cats kill 2.4 billion birds :O
MSmits: the cat I had when I was young was too fat to catch birds
MSmits: but it ate the neighbor cat's birds
dbdr: that's the problem when politicians use talking point without orders of magnitude. might be true and totally insignificant at the same time
MSmits: yeah if they just said the 200.000, it would seem like a lot
dbdr: poor birdies
MSmits: I might use this piece of information
MSmits: i have an assignment
MSmits: on fake news and misleading statistics
MSmits: seems perfect
wlesavo: poor cats have to eat 2.4b birds!
MSmits: not all birds taste like chicken
MSmits: I assume
dbdr: poor birds have to eat worms
MSmits: maybe some worms taste like chicken
dbdr: I know frogs do :)
MSmits: how do you know?
dbdr: I ate frogs one or twice, as a kid
MSmits: ahh ok, I assumed corona just got really bad in your country
dbdr: you mean food shortage?
wlesavo: you was a French kid that grow up Hungarian? :slight_smile:
dbdr: I grew up French
MSmits: I didn't know the French ate frogs
MSmits: I knew about the snails
wlesavo: i wonder why didnt we ever tried to cook a frog as a kids
dbdr: it's quite rare, but it exists
Astrobytes: Italians do in some parts as well. Used to be able to get them from the fish and chip shop here (italian run). They're alright.
wlesavo: MSmits it is a popular stereotype, i dont know to what extent it is true though
dbdr: it is known, the english sometimes call the french "the frogs" as an insult because of it
Astrobytes: and rosbifs in return
MSmits: I'm starting to understand why Euler has this avatar
dbdr: as I said, I ate frogs and snails once or twice each, and I think that's typical
dbdr: not everyday food
wlesavo: dbdr yeah in russian there is an analogue to that
Astrobytes: Snails need a *lot* of garlic & butter
Astrobytes: They're not palatable without imo
MSmits: they are easy to catch too
Astrobytes: I tried a tinned snail once... oh dear
dbdr: only after a rain :)
MSmits: it was really good Astrobytes?
Astrobytes: I'd rather eat raw frogs
MSmits: even better?
MSmits: how about worms
Astrobytes: Put it this way, it is a crime that tinned snails exist
MSmits: ahh I see
MSmits: the best things are illegal
Astrobytes: ffs :P
dbdr: says the Dutch guy
MSmits: barely Dutch :P
MSmits: fitting parameters for checkers atm
MSmits: cant believe I still havent figured out a good way to fit offline
Astrobytes: You got your negamax working then?
MSmits: it worked
MSmits: then I tried the eval in my mcts bot
MSmits: and it was better
dbdr: what are you rather? EU citizen? world citizen?
Astrobytes: ah, EPT I guess?
MSmits: nah I am just saying I have less in common with the average dutch guy than with you guys
MSmits: EPT yes depth 0, so just eval... UCT guided search
MSmits: I an ranked 6-7 before fitting params properly, Just now fitting exploration and winrate going from 31.5 to 40% against rank 2-6
MSmits: of course I can't fit against rank 1
MSmits: unless dbdr did his compiled version submit thingy
dbdr: I think I might
dbdr: try it
MSmits: ahh ok, might try later, thanks
MSmits: it's not that critical. I just want a range of different players
MSmits: you always risk someone being deterministic and throwing off your fit
MSmits: there's some weird features people put in their checkers eval I found
MSmits: I don't understand half of it
MSmits: sometimes it almost looks like ntuple
dbdr: the man who could guess the opponent's eval functions :)
anantaCodes: Can I share my Codingame profile on my resume?
MSmits: Sure, but maybe you need to explain why
MSmits: also you might want to beef it up a bit first
MSmits: get some cp, xp, some competitive rankings in a multi or two, maybe participate in a few contests etc.
Astrobytes: pictures of steaks, burgers etc
Astrobytes: sorry, too good to resist
MSmits: I know, it was the first thing I thought after i typed it
wlesavo: im so hungry i would eat a frog now
MSmits: it was, damn... i can't make puns on my own messages
MSmits: wlesavo Euler may log in later
Astrobytes: Toad != frog
MSmits: yeah but is he a toad or a frog, i keep forgetting
Astrobytes: Toad! Hypnotoad!
MSmits: oh right
wlesavo: i would eat a toad as well
MSmits: I need to go work on my AI course
MSmits: supposed to get a big part of that done this week. Havent got anything else to do
Astrobytes: shouldn't take you long
MSmits: I am designing this course
Astrobytes: ahhh OK
Astrobytes: that's awesome
MSmits: I want to at least pick the topics
MSmits: yeah its basically a study project and also used for work
MSmits: so doubly effective
Astrobytes: That's very handy indeed
MSmits: the hardest part is coming up with interesting activities that dont require coding that is complicated
MSmits: most of them only have basic python skills
Astrobytes: why are they doing an AI course then?
MSmits: cuz we picked that subject for our curriculum :)
MSmits: it's one of the many optional ones
MSmits: they have to do 4 optional subjects
MSmits: optional as in, the school chooses what to teach
Astrobytes: Ah right, 'additional interest' subjects
MSmits: yeah they alll do it though, I'll make sure there's some basic topics and some harder topics and assignments in there
MSmits: for those with more skills
MSmits: I want to at least try and get some BFS, DFS and simple minimax in. Mostly monkey-see-monkey-do
Astrobytes: they just get a 'pass/fail' as opposed to a grade on these optional subjects? Or it counts the same as their mandatory subjects?
MSmits: then for NN's and such I'll use the tensor flow website I think, there's probably other good free stuff
MSmits: whatever the school decides to grade them, there's no reason to do the grading different for these
MSmits: they are optional but not considered less important
Astrobytes: OK. Was just thinking back to my 'short courses' at school, they were pass/fail as opposed to full grades
MSmits: ahh ok, well this is not exactly short. It's 2-3 months
MSmits: only 3 hrs a week though
Astrobytes: Well mines were a full year lol
MSmits: wow nice
Astrobytes: But just one or 2 classes a week
Astrobytes: (school year that is)
MSmits: nah this is graded, but we can also do pass/fail, which is not necessarily easy, it just depends on how hard it is to pass
MSmits: thies is also doing this course
Astrobytes: Cool. He was doing alright on CG right?
MSmits: so I have to keep him in the back of my head when designing the extra stuff
MSmits: he writes bots quickly
MSmits: bit like euler/illedan etc. Obviously with less experience. He sees a multi and gets a working bot in less than a day
Astrobytes: It's nice when you see someone taking an interest and diving in like that eh
Astrobytes: anyways, I gotta run. Catch you later
jacek: oh new puzzle of the week
eulerscheZahl: congrats to Eric
eulerscheZahl: Onitama got 101 new players during that week
eulerscheZahl: 63 in almost a full year then 101 in a single week
darkhorse64: A CP orgy
jacek: i hope you dont know what that means
eulerscheZahl: yes, it gained relevance for the global leaderboard
eulerscheZahl: and a new multiplayer pending already
jacek: perhaps someone will be better than remi
darkhorse64: In French, orgy is not so strong. Sorry about that
eulerscheZahl: let's say "festival"
eulerscheZahl: or ogre?
darkhorse64: A arming party ?
jacek: i meant cp. is it codinggame point?
Master_Yi: It is all ogre now
MindController: anyone know whats this?
MindController: ERROR: ld.so: object 'libstdbuf.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
darkhorse64: No, but it does not hurt you
PatrickMcGinnisII: MindController I dropped it in discord error channel, i think someone put in a trouble ticket. i started noticing it when i put define("",...); in my code . it doesn't seem to hurt anything
PatrickMcGinnisII: I think it has something to do with temporary file directory access
PatrickMcGinnisII: malicious code is still being injected imho thru the site, maybe the error is part of the attempt to stop it
jacek: how would you know...? :thinking:
PatrickMcGinnisII: jacek I'm getting yellow ! processes in my task manager linked to my video card. only when I login to CG do they come up
MSmits: why are you getting yellow? This sounds like a medical problem to me
PatrickMcGinnisII: I've updated my video card drivers since, and they still come up
PatrickMcGinnisII: i could look into the event manager logs... but I'm lazy
eulerscheZahl: pixi.js is really GPU-heavy for what you get in return
eulerscheZahl: https://pixijs.io/examples/ open a few of them and tell us if this is yellow too
PatrickMcGinnisII: new containers show up, not errored tho
PatrickMcGinnisII: there are empty css image objects in the web dev that could have flash objects inserted... i dunno, maywhen the random number msgs 37348728 pop up in chat? i just shutdown the errored contaners and hit play, nothing new pops up ... i'll check again when/if i get a msg from random acct
eulerscheZahl: happens to all of us
eulerscheZahl: i think there's a correlation with receiving private messages
eulerscheZahl: i get messaged, close the chat and then it opens again. and that weird number chat too
PatrickMcGinnisII: i don't have one at the moment, but i did 15 minutes ago
PatrickMcGinnisII: if you click over to it, it says it's trying to connect... so there is something not good going on
Astrobytes: Don't worry, it's just codingamers from the Ancient Times trying to break through to us
eulerscheZahl: reported on the discord bugs channel by multiple users
PatrickMcGinnisII: it's not hard to break with the java crossovers to discord and such
PatrickMcGinnisII: something is trying to run on my GPU that shouldn't be at these times
PatrickMcGinnisII: might be trying to attach to shadowplay container and stream from cams
PatrickMcGinnisII: i don't have a cam attached, so would come up as error
Astrobytes: afaik nobody else has reported anything similar, perhaps a local issue for you?
Astrobytes: (wrt the GPU issues)
PatrickMcGinnisII: i ran spyware and virus crap a few days ago....nothing
Astrobytes: Driver issue?
PatrickMcGinnisII: I reupped it
PatrickMcGinnisII: over the years...same hardware, same software...this is new phenomena
Astrobytes: Old GPU?
PatrickMcGinnisII: i really thing some of the added functionality has opened a hole that someone is trying to use ... and failing at, I hope
MSmits: almost like a lovecraft story
PatrickMcGinnisII: my local server doesn't have any connections that shouldn't be there
PatrickMcGinnisII: nor the router
Astrobytes: If your GPU is old it might be having trouble with some aspects of pixi/another part of the site?
PatrickMcGinnisII: well i thought it might be my youtube adblocker, but I found its unrealted
PatrickMcGinnisII: i used a few differrent browsers
PatrickMcGinnisII: as well
PatrickMcGinnisII: i do get the..CG isn't compatible with your browser anymore warning
PatrickMcGinnisII: maybe it's just that
PatrickMcGinnisII: i dunno, I'll shutup ... but someone is trying to do stupid sh*t
MSmits: someone always is
MSmits: sometimes it's me
MSmits: I'm selecting my AI topics. So far I got:
MSmits: search algorithms
MSmits: machine learning
MSmits: maybe a separate thing about adversarial search
MSmits: probably big data
MSmits: computer vision
MSmits: some of these are related
MSmits: hard to split them up
MSmits: I'm looking at other courses online, see what they did
Astrobytes: yes, check other syllabi for inspiration is best I think
MSmits: mmh constraint satisfaction and optimization problems are cool too
MSmits: can be really easy to code examples for this
MSmits: like simulated annealing. That seems within reach of my students
jacek: genetic algorithm?
MSmits: too complicated for them to code themselves I think, but I bet there are places where you can take code and tinker with it
MSmits: some visual example
MSmits: not everyhing in the course has to be a coding exercise
MSmits: preferably not even half
jacek: already 3 more people in d&b wood1
MSmits: dots and boxes
jacek: i still need to do proper search
MSmits: death & beyond
MSmits: I have a solver that solves all endgames, but I made it so complicated that it's hell to get it into a working bot
Illedan: I like the huge different in mine and your approaches :D
jacek: so far *you claim* you have solver
jacek: there is no proof of that
MSmits: that's true
Illedan: I even coded d&b in the online IDE :P
MSmits: I solved wood 2 :P
MSmits: i think it was very funny that solving it made my bot play worse than using a simple heuristic
MSmits: it already knew it had lost half the time before the game started, so it barely even tried
MSmits: 1 -3 is the solved score I think
MSmits: or 3 -1 i forget
MSmits: are you saying i made my bot depressed jacek?
jacek: a pinnacle of machine learning eh
MSmits: heh I guess so
Majeck: "ERROR: ld.so: object 'libstdbuf.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored." Is a CG side bug, right?
ZarthaxX: MSmits i think you are overshooting a bit with your expectations
ZarthaxX: of your students capabilities
eulerscheZahl: wow, a ZarthaxX appeared
PatrickMcGinnisII: wow, a ZarthaxX appeared :P
jacek: oh ZarthaxX appeared
eulerscheZahl: and a parrot as well :o
ZarthaxX: stop tagging me sheez
ZarthaxX: yeah i have been missing for.. months?
ZarthaxX: hi yall, how you been
Majeck: Stop tagging who ZarthaxX?
eulerscheZahl: but did you bring struct with you?
ZarthaxX: i hate you Majeck
jacek: Automaton2000 who is ZarthaxX
ZarthaxX: eulerscheZahl no :rofl:
Automaton2000: i'm just glad to help
ZarthaxX: is he missing??
eulerscheZahl: yes, for 3 months
ZarthaxX: tobou too? :P
jacek: i didnt find him in java either
eulerscheZahl: might be rotting in his basement by now, no idea
ZarthaxX: hell no :(
jacek: he will return for the contest to delete his account afterwards
ZarthaxX: how are you guys doing
eulerscheZahl: going back to office about 2 days a week now
eulerscheZahl: working only from home for 5 months
ZarthaxX: well, you are better than in argentina
ZarthaxX: "lockdown" for 200 days now
ZarthaxX: i hate this country
jacek: i have holiday for 1.5 weeks
eulerscheZahl: oh, that sounds frustrating
jacek: you dont like lockdown?
jacek: remote work*
ZarthaxX: who are you asking that?
jacek: you :v
eulerscheZahl: you are the one whom we haven't seen for ages
ZarthaxX: it's not remote work what i hate haha, i love that
ZarthaxX: but by lockdown i mean "you need permission to use your car"
ZarthaxX: "shops still closed"
ZarthaxX: economy just going down
Astrobytes: oh wow, a Zartholatron!
jacek: thats really shit then
ZarthaxX: yes, the politicians here are just dumb
ZarthaxX: they dont get what they are doing
eulerscheZahl: good job for not pinging poor ZarthaxX
Astrobytes: I never use his proper name :P
jacek: AutomatonNN would never do that
AutomatonNN: more code is always fine
Majeck: What a fine piece of wisdom
eulerscheZahl: oh, you missed the mod updates
ZarthaxX: Astrobytes mah man
jacek: just like cucumber counterstrike?
ZarthaxX: how you been modAstro
Majeck: AutomatonNN should I write 3000 lines without testing a single one?
AutomatonNN: for CSB
ZarthaxX: eulerscheZahl yeah, congratz haha
ZarthaxX: it was time already
Majeck: Thanks Automaton2000
Automaton2000: you will need to do this
Majeck: If you say so
Astrobytes: Same old crap ZarthaxX, how are you?
ZarthaxX: stressed by uni and this country :p
ZarthaxX: and i have been diving into security
Astrobytes: I have the same country-stress here
ZarthaxX: interesting world
ZarthaxX: well, area i mean
Astrobytes: Nightclubs or computer security? :P
ZarthaxX: Astrobytes i think i can beat you on that :P
ZarthaxX: computer security haha
eulerscheZahl: here in Germany numbers are also going up again. so far we can still meet and I can play soccer
ZarthaxX: oh man, i miss doing excercise .. :(
eulerscheZahl: but a 2nd lockdown is definitely possible
jacek: why would you call it soccer not football?
eulerscheZahl: :soccer: :football:
Astrobytes: We're on extra COVID measures in my part of Scotland, full lockdown will be soon I think. Still haven't had my bone density scan btw
ZarthaxX: the park next block has been closed since march toad
ZarthaxX: i just cant stand this :(
jacek: be a rebel
Astrobytes: Way too long
jacek: do exerice!
ZarthaxX: jump the fence? :p
Majeck: I live in Chile and so far I think it's gone pretty well in the country
eulerscheZahl: for you that was a lockdown during winter at least
Shadowtick: can someone help me figure out why my code isn't working because I am thinking my nextcheckpointangle is messing it up
ZarthaxX: true true, if it extends till summer tho
jacek: man i always was so antisocial and anti sport, i wish the lockdown was when i was going to school
Astrobytes: can't see it going away anytime soon :/
Majeck: I mean the worst cities get full on quarantine but at least where I live we just have curfew and a "pls don't go see other people pls"
ZarthaxX: i think all of us wish that jacek haha
ZarthaxX: Astrobytes no ;( how are you and your family's health
eulerscheZahl: he's running again
jacek: i think people are more concerned about their business that virus itself
Astrobytes: Grandad's in a home now, rest of family is good, I'm still shit
eulerscheZahl: but you wrote "gotta run" just a few hours ago?
Astrobytes: I ain't even had my scan yet
Astrobytes: "gotta run" = got to go for now
AntiSquid: hi zayed123
jacek: "gotta run to toiler"
AntiSquid: ZarthaxX hi
eulerscheZahl: oh :(
Majeck: jacek business as in a store or business as in each one's life?
Astrobytes: So I'm just sitting here on painkillers indefinitely
jacek: i mean, government in single day can shut down your business and what can you do?
AntiSquid: still got delayed treatment astro?
Astrobytes: So many small businesses destroyed
AntiSquid: like how many months do you have to wait?
Astrobytes: Yeah AntiSquid
Astrobytes: This has been since what, May or something?
Astrobytes: Gonna be longer now with new restrictions
Astrobytes: And it's no better, if I overdo it I suffer the consequences
ZarthaxX: AntiSquid heyo squido
ZarthaxX: how are you
AntiSquid: i need to have some allergic reaction checked, not sure from what it is, glad it's not that severe, waiting from january for an appointment that was finally booked in june for decemeber :D Astrobytes
ZarthaxX: scan for what Astrobytes? sounds awful
eulerscheZahl: bone density
Majeck: AntiSquid why do you have to wait so long for an appointment?
Astrobytes: Jeez AntiSquid, wow! Yeah, I guess if it was severe enough you'd get the appointment
AntiSquid: because of the virus Majeck
PatrickMcGinnisII: Everything is opened back up in Fla., people and govt. sick of it...they just ready to let it kill 1% of everyone off
AntiSquid: mass panic
Astrobytes: What euler said ZarthaxX
AntiSquid: im fine ZarthaxX are you doing the unofficial contest? how's school? still teaching right?
Majeck: PatrickMcGinnisII We're handling it like the best in the world, believe me, no one is handling better than us
ZarthaxX: ah, i thought it was that
ZarthaxX: that has been since may as you said right? wtf
AntiSquid: are you from Florida PatrickMcGinnisII?
Astrobytes: Yeah, around then
ZarthaxX: AntiSquid no im not... what is it about? doubt i have time
Astrobytes: It's code of ice and fire
AntiSquid: i can't think of any real game that is like it, so
ZarthaxX: and yeah im still teaching, preparing some things to show in class , virtual classes are cool
PatrickMcGinnisII: yes antiS I'm a FLNERD
ZarthaxX: switching between tabs in chrome to show stuff quickly is amazing :P
ZarthaxX: Astrobytes oh known game okey, so ppl from here already have advantage
Astrobytes: It's judged on progression tho
AntiSquid: what's with the florida hate in the news? i kinda noticed some bias there
eulerscheZahl: yeah, it's a "contest" after all
eulerscheZahl: just promoting an existing game, nothing too thrilling
PatrickMcGinnisII: FL hate? I don't watch news, all garbage
Astrobytes: My contest code is so scary, I updated it a wee while ago but to do anything further I need to rewrite... donno if I can be bothered
ZarthaxX: eulerscheZahl good point
PatrickMcGinnisII: rewriting COIF is so annoying for me
eulerscheZahl: i proposed an original game. but CG didn't want to host it before the next official contest :(
Astrobytes: Still not sure on that logic but whatever
AntiSquid: i agree with the news and garbage words being used in same sentence, but i tend to get bored with lockdown PatrickMcGinnisII
eulerscheZahl: maybe we'll see it in january
Astrobytes: Hope so
ZarthaxX: but it will be hosted later? :P
ZarthaxX: ah nice
eulerscheZahl: still not decided
Astrobytes: If it doesn't come back as contest, petition to have it as PotW :P
PatrickMcGinnisII: goveernor of fla. openened everything back up, but my GF is a teacher and they had 4 cases of CoV in her school last week, so she is pretty f'kd, if she doesn't go to work they take her pension away.
eulerscheZahl: the game is finished. i'll publish it for sure. one way or another
Astrobytes: Perhaps we can do unofficial like with BitRunner
eulerscheZahl: that's like 10% of a real contest in player count
Astrobytes: Yeah I know, but I mean if we don't get it as a contest. Just advertise it a lot
eulerscheZahl: maybe we get it, won't think about a plan B yet
Astrobytes: Well, fingers crossed
eulerscheZahl: or maybe you don't even like the game :thinking:
AntiSquid: crowdfund the contest prizes if it's unofficial ... htere are crowdfunds for all sorts of completely retarded shit, so why not for a contest :P
Astrobytes: Doesn't matter, contests are always good for the community whether I like the game personally or not
ZarthaxX: it revives the chat
Astrobytes: this is also true lol
ZarthaxX: eulerscheZahl did riddle prize ever arrive?
ZefusToutCourt: I can’t beat the boss 3
ZefusToutCourt: im firrst of the league
eulerscheZahl: no ZarthaxX
eulerscheZahl: and i won a tshirt on Kotlin heroes but wasn't home when it arrived. Now it's back to Russia :(
eulerscheZahl: and RAIC has no tshirts this year, have to find a new source
eulerscheZahl: hm, hacktoberfest is running
ZarthaxX: NO WHATTTT
ZarthaxX: that sucks D:
ZarthaxX: did you play fb hacker cup btw?
eulerscheZahl: i hate facebook
eulerscheZahl: so no
ZarthaxX: oh what's that
ZarthaxX: i see, short and simple
eulerscheZahl: https://github.com/noisefilter19/LeetCode_Algorithms/issues that looks like easy points
eulerscheZahl: on the other hand: meh
ZarthaxX: i dont get what you have to do with that
eulerscheZahl: create 4 pull requests on github
eulerscheZahl: and you can claim a tshirt
Majeck: Is there a Wood 1 boss for dots and boxes?
Astrobytes: No, that's the top league
Majeck: Will there ever be a silver league?
Astrobytes: Probably not
Astrobytes: Since it's a community multiplayer
Majeck: So the goal is just to try to get the best ranking I can in wood 1?
Astrobytes: Oh if you're really into it just keep playing, community multis are more about getting high as you can in a smaller league
Astrobytes: They tend to be a little harder than regular multis (ex-contests) so only a select group tend to play them
Astrobytes: So the competition is usually quite fierce ;)
Majeck: Oh ok
Majeck: Thanks for the help
