Competition Procedure

 

World generation

  • Sector count will depend on number of entrants.
  • The sector will be randomly generated using the maptool mod (or a variation of it).
  • This will be cramped by design, we want to encourage bots to fight for territory.

Game constants

All game constants will be their default values unless explicitly stated elsewhere.

Deciding spawning locations

  • Spawning will open 24h before the start of the match. During that time players can spawn in and respawn at will.
  • Players place their first spawn manually.
  • Players may NOT respawn once the server has started.
  • The host reserves the right to remove any screeps spawns that are left behind by respawning.
