Up Topic The Rybka Lounge / Test Positions / STS Tourney: Please Select 4 Engines (<=2000 points)
- - By chezzter (***) [in] Date 2010-03-15 19:28
You have to choose 4 engines with combined value of no more than 2000 points from the below list:

Excel sheet:
http://sites.google.com/site/strategictestsuite/test-results/STS1-8.xls

Points at the "Total Side". Add them up to see if they are <=2000.

Average from the total side seems to be nearly 500.

So, 500x4 options makes it 2000 points.

Note that I will test these engines in [u]STS 9 and STS 10[/u], and update them in the site.

Martin T has taken Doch, Booot, N2 and Hamsters = 1997 points.

You can't take engines that have already been taken. So something else that weren't yet taken.

Can you link to the page where you're getting more participants? What makes interesting these contests is the player's comments.

I'll take Pharaon, Crafty, Learning Lemming, and Typhoon, they total 1995 if I added right.
Parent - - By chezzter (***) [in] Date 2010-03-17 18:34
Somebody also took Lemming, Typhoon and Pharaon. But I'm making exception for those that chose these engines in the last minute especially when there aren't many engines left to be selected.

Welcome to the club, nice to see you posting in your predictions!

> But I'm making exception


Wait, that's unfair, so is the best strategy to wait till there are few engines left and then pick whatever one chooses? Either you don't take exceptions or you should allow people to pick the engines that they want, e.g. I'd change my picks to Pro Deo, Movei, Alaric and Booot.
Parent - - By chezzter (***) [in] Date 2010-03-17 18:47
Ok, you have raised the fair point. I shall lift the exception. So, King of mate, can you kindly change the vote to something which wasn't already taken?
Parent - - By chezzter (***) [in] Date 2010-03-17 18:53
I just checked the date of the posts made. It appears that King of mate posted earlier than Harun or Gailhac. Therefore his predictions still is valid. I'll ask Harun/Gailhac to change the engines.
Parent - - By KingOfMate (**) [us] Date 2010-03-20 10:48
Phew, Im glad I dont have to change them. Will the winner, or like maybe top 5 get a prize, or is this just for fun? I was also wondering if Learning Lemming is still a private engine, or is there a link to download it?
Parent - By chezzter (***) [in] Date 2010-03-21 04:01
Well, I have run out of betas and new engines to give them away for prize :) so yeah it's for fun.

Yes, Lemming is still a private engine. The author is currently involved in development of new engine together with Edsel, It's called Hannibal which played in last CCT.

I shall remove the "Don't select engines that were chosen by somebody else" rule next time.

It takes bit of the time to do frequent check. This isn't a monopoly anyway. :)
