This season started in June with barely 15 bots, but saw an awesome increase of submissions with up to 50 bots submitted coded in C++, Java, C#, Python…
With the release of the sc2API in Nov 2017, it is now possible to code your own bot and challenge other bots on a Bot ladder.
It’s actually pretty easy to do with bare programming skills, given the multitude of starter kits and open source example bots, come join us for season 7 !

The sc2ai ladder season 6 tournament will start today, featuring the best 12 bots from the last season of the ladder. Will be streamed at 9pm UTC on https://www.twitch.tv/starcraft2ai
This will feature the best 12 bots from the sc2ai.net ladder and will be a double round robin with 2 groups of 6. The best 2 bots will then face each other in the grand finals
While the bots are mostly not based on machine learning, prepare for some non human play as rines and reapers split out individually at 10k APM, but decision making remains sometimes poor (see bugs:D)
