  • Once groups are determined, each participant will submit one replay done in (human-assisted Player1) real-time mode against every other bot in the group.
  • Player-bot "Archon" plays locally, against bots that is hosted on a server, but are downloaded to the player’s machine to be executed. For this the use of binary bots (compiled to exe) is preferred
