4.7 - wow, one more percent to APS
Yeah, congrats! Might be interesting to see a re-release of 4.6 - its APS could be significantly different if released right now.
Good call - it might be time to wipe the melee results again. The inter-battle relations really screw things up as the rumble population changes, perhaps I should add some sort of rolling average to it so that the entire database doesn't need to be wiped every time. Maybe just the last 20k battles or something, or the last 20k/participants pairings.
I thought about a year ago we had a restart when we switched the allowed robocode version. Since than, there are only handful of new bots.
However, if it can drop the score of two of you even a bit, I am all for it :).
Melee would settle within couple days anyway, so why not to restart. I also presume that 1on1 is not affected by it. We can also upgrade the allowed to upload version to the newest robocode version at the same time. I am afraid it currently stops new comers from contributing their CPU cycles.
I'd rather fix the problem permanently than do a full reset again. I've updated the rumble to have a rolling average of 10k/participants per pairing. This should allow the rumble to catch up with slow drift. I've also added 220.127.116.11 to the list of allowed clients.
