Platinum Rift: Final Report

STAY CONNECTED, FOLLOW CODINGAME NOW


An so the war ended...

Platinum Rift is now over! For 18 days, we observed your pods gain ground, we weighed your strategies, we watched your Replays, we saw you fight for the Top 100, we heard your worries, we supported, as much as we could... We were into the game, just as you were, and it was great.

Thanks everyone for all your feedback, enthusiasm, useful comments (sent by email or posted on the forum), partial debugging, stat tools created, and more. We will be carefully taking your suggestions for improvement and concerns into account, most of them referring to the scoring / ranking calculation, the allocated space for source code, the IRC logs, the stability of the results, the sequencing of matches. We're sorry if some of you were frustrated, and all in all, we sincerely hope most of you had a good time, though :)

Thanks to all our sponsors also who followed the competition and closely followed its unexpected turnarounds!




THE FINAL LEADERBOARD

 

Out of the 3200 participants (wow!), 1069 pushed their AI into the arena and ended up in the Leaderboard.

To put everyone on an equal footing, we had decided, as announced, to play more matches for the players in the Top 100 at the end of the contest. Whereas some of you were lucky enough to see they had won up to 40 places (and in particular siman, our winner, who thus could raise to first place!), others unluckily had their ranking lowered but that's the way it goes and it will always be difficult to please everyone :)



THE PODIUM



And the winners are..
1. siman  is going home with a Nexus 6
2. Recar gets the Oculus Rift Developer Kit 2
3. grmel will be able to drive a Parrot Mini-Drone

Congratulations everyone who took part in the contest! You will soon be able to play Platinum Rift in the Multiplayer section on our site.
