Okay, we have leaderboard of players. There is even an external page which acts as a leaderboard of puzzles.
I suggest to also have a “leaderboard” of programming languages. Ranking could show for example:
- total # of submitted bot code in puzzles / contests / solos for given language (overall popularity)
- total # of bot code that achieved #1 ranking in a contest / multi for a given language (popularity among champions)
- total # of bot code that achieved top 10 ranking in a contest / multi for a given language (language is fast/good enough to achieve well with it)
It does not mean that one is really better than the other, but CG usage data can be interesting.
We just think, that we human players compete and our weapons are our bots… In reality, the Language Creators who are competing - and their ‘bots’ are we, human players…
