Kings of Zero Sum: Strategies from the AI Wars

On CodeCombat Blog

It began in Singapore, where the top young coders sent thousands of soldiers to destroy one another. It then spread worldwide, turning innocent game developers into sorcerous warlords. The sky darkened with arrows, spears, artillery shells, and clouds made of solid gold. Freed from eternal imprisonment by countless reckless targeting algorithms, the mountain yetis charged into the fray, causing a worldwide bone shortage. The Zero Sum programming tournament was upon us.

The #1 ogre king is the returning champion Wizard Dude (Michael Heasell) with 162 wins and 1 loss across all human opponents. In second is xxx9877654321, with nemoyatpeace in third.

The #1 human king is the unstoppable NoJuice4u (Wayne Chen) with 105 wins and 3 losses, trailed by Qenf in second, with Stofflon and Driphter tied for third.

Rogue Wrestling for a Cause

On Princess Posts

Last night, I had the opportunity to participate in an event that I will remember for my entire lifetime... Last week, a 22 year old from Hudsonville killed himself. He was a wrestler when he was in high school, but he also has a little brother who is a senior this year. His brother's name is Jonah and to the wrestling community around Grand Rapids, he is a great friend. Last night, at about 10:00pm almost 100 wrestlers made there way over to a local high school. A freshman from the school made sure to keep it unlocked and the team of that school had the mats already set up. We came together as a community and ran a late-night tournament. Each wrestler paid $5 to enter the tournament and the winner of each "weight class" won about $40 dollars. We decided on having only 8 weight classes because some of our 140 pounders were much better wrestlers than our 152s and they wanted to see if weight was more important than skill. The left over money was donated anonymously to Jonah and his family. I obviously, am not a wrestler, but I was helping to officiate and keep score of the matches. It was so much fun. We really came together when we needed to and I couldn't be more proud to have been a part of it all. As I was talking to my friend Kyle last night he said "Wrestling is a tough sport. We beat each other, and hate each other at times, but when things get real we'll always be here for one another. As wrestlers, we have a bond that no one else can ever comprehend."

Oh, and P.S. guys, I got a piggy back ride from a state champion last night.(; Be. Jealous.
