Kicking off the first real BerryBots competition: BerryBots Little League. :-) A month to write a duelist and win a t-shirt or $25 Amazon gift card. I didn't want to force things, which is why it's taken this long to do this... But finally a couple people brought it up in the forums, so here we are!
Most exciting part for me is you can develop and submit your bot right from the web UI at PlayBerryBots.com/battle.
How robust are your servers? Do you think you could handle a RaspberryPi.org blog entry?
Haha, I really doubt it. :-) But I dunno. It would be a good problem to have. :-P It's on Amazon EC2 and on a single instance of their smallest tier. But theoretically, it shouldn't be too hard to scale it up with EC2, since that's basically their core strength as a platform. It's a pretty simple app.
Er, I think berrybots.com could handle it. That site's pretty lightweight and on its own VPS. But playberrybots.com is on EC2 and obviously running matches server-side could slow down pretty quickly. Most matches only take 1-2s to run, so it should be able to handle at least a few people at a time.
