I have notices some bots at the top of contests or future contest that after “TEST IN ARENA” are changed on wait/random mode.

I presume, that this comes from being competitive and trying to hide your strategy through obscurity.

Guys, guys… this:

  1. Helps little,
  2. Shows that you lack of collaboration skills and you are not a team player,
  3. Shows that you probably cannot play and have fun,
  4. Makes harm to you by building egoistic habits.

IMO all tricks are allowed. Their bad when they announced what the game will be in the bot programming event month earlier.
