TRON Tournament is based upon the excellent TRON Challenge, Cody 327, created by Alfonso Nieto-Castanon.
Host Bot: Fixed Pattern CCW - Weak
The Passing criteria is changed to Wins - Ties/4 > Losses.
The 100 Matches will be "even" as Host and Player will play the same 50 paired starting positions.
The Host TRON-bot will be provided in the function template. It is highly recommend to run the initial TRON bot so that the player can copy the Test Suite for his bot creation. The Test Suite code has beautiful graphics created by Alfonso.
The TRON arena is fixed at 50x50.
Please visit the Cody 327 link for any info I may miss.
