I get it. Contests are made for individuals to compete.
Would it be the same for past contests?
For example, I'm SIlver in both "Code4LIfe" and Coders "Strike Back" (pretty low in both leaderboards).
Would it be allowed to form a party with another programmer (creating an ad-hoc account for the party, with the participants fully disclosed), work together on an AI and having it competing with the others?
The reason I'm insisting on teamwork is because in real work you very rarely work in isolation; you get feedback and give feedback, you think of a nice algorithm, the other codes it efficiently, and so on. I feel it would be nice to recreate this way of working here on Coding Game.
