CG is a great competition platform, but it is foremost a great learning and competence building platform. To aid this role I suggest the following:
- CG shall select one old multi (not any of the most recent 5, but one of the olders)
- Close it down from any further submits, no additional CP/XP can come from it
- Make all submited bot source code visible for anyone for this multi (create a page where it can be browsed, e.g, filterable by language, ranking, league, owner)
For many people, investigating some better coders’ source code would be a great learning tool. It is also good if you want to look a bit more into a ‘secondary’ language of yours.
Copycat can be an issue that ruins an open competition and not just contest but also a multi.
But sacrificing one single old multi out of the 30+ old ones might be worth the learning potential.
