I really loved the contest. Thanks Coding Game for bringing it to live.
I ended 48th GOLD (194th total).
This was such a good challenge, But I could not get my simulation to work properly.
I reverted to a more direct approach Closest Snaffle, Throw then Flipendo, Flipendo when alligned or with rebound to the goal.
A lots of things I could have done since it was a little mix of CSB, Ghost buster, and Accountant, in my view. In none of thode did I try to implement a simulation so this one was a trial. I failed. But I learned a lot.
In the end, the important in those contests is to improve ourself. This one, for most of my friends, was a little scary to many things could happen. That is true, however keeping a simple approach could get you a long way.
The top guys are genius, they deserve their prizes.
As for the tShirts: Of course i’d like to get a random one. but I agree that the 11-50 should get theirs. that would account for 40, make a draw with the 10 left for the 200 remaining of the 250 firsts. That would be only fair.
Thanks again Coding Games.
PS:I improved almost every contest since I started (with Smash the Code) I hope i’ll make it to legend in a challenge soon
