Proposal: Nerf Scripts

Unpopular at 1-5 with 1 unresolved DEF. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 03 Aug 2022 18:42:37 UTC

Append after the sentence in the rule “Ending a Bout” that reads “When a Bout has Ended, the Announcer posts an entry to the blog summarising the events of the Bout and its Winner” the following sentence:

The Announcer also, in this entry, posts the BotScript of the Winner’s Bot.

Why would this be necessary? This feels more like forcing people to give away trade secrets rather than actually benefitting the game as a whole. While I understand maybe in case there’s an ambiguity during the match, but if that’s the case, why not force both participants to reveal their scripts? This feels a little off.

I’m with Trapdoor on this one, the bot script can make or break a bout, and having the winning one be available publicly available defeats the purpose of the bout, to test not only your knowledge of mechanics but also of “programing”

I’m interested in Josh’s apparent bid to make the leaders in the victory race a little more vulnerable, I just like this idea better than the proposal to allow total loss of LED Screen tracking.
