The fifth anniversary championship has completed. As usually, it was not easy, but isn’t that the whole point? Only overcoming difficulties, making mistakes, a person learns something. We hope that every participant not only enjoyed our event, but also discovered new knowledge, became better than few months ago. Someone aimed an absolute victory, the other was satisfied with the fact that just taught his wizard to move around the map. All are welcome. The main thing is development and progress. The championship serves this purpose.
And now it’s time to take stock. Places in the Finals as follows:
Anton Chumachenko - Antmsu (Russia, Moscow) - MacBook Pro. It should be noted that Anton participated in our championship from the very first year. Every time he took a higher place and finally managed to achieve the title of winner of the championship. We heartily congratulate him.
Alex Dichkovsky - Commandos (Belarus, Grodno) - MacBook Air. For a long time his AI was the absolute favorite of our championship. Alex also participated in the championship of 2012 year, but then he had gaps in attendance :) Apparently, this explains the second place.
Maksim Posazhennikov - NighTurs (Belarus, Baranovichi) - iPad Air 2. The CodeWizards championship was the debut of the Maxim, in which he immediately decided to take the bull by the horns. A well-planned strategy and a significant amount of the effort has earned him a well-deserved third place in the Finals.
Oleg Kuznetsov - Recar (Ukraine, Kiev) - iPod shuffle + WD MY PASSPORT ULTRA 2TB. Like for many finalists, this is not the first participation of Oleg in our championship. This time he took 4-th place, but we are confident that he is capable of more and prove himself.
Tony Kozlovsky - TonyK (Belarus, Minsk, BSU) - iPod shuffle + WD MY PASSPORT ULTRA 2TB. Belarus took another prize. Well done, guys!
Ivan Tyamgin - tyamgin (Russia, Simferopol, KFU) - iPod shuffle + WD MY PASSPORT ULTRA 2TB.
It should be noted that there is a significant gap between the first and second three, and between the second three and the rest of the finalists. This indicates significant differences between strategies and minimal influence of the random. We should also mention Cyril “core2duo” Bolonkin, which unexpected strategy has managed to present a few unpleasant surprises to the leaders and other participants of the Finals.
Next are the winners of the Sandbox. Each of them will receive WD MY PASSPORT ULTRA 2TB. Everyone else good luck next year. So, meet:
Vasily Zverev - vzverev78 (Russia, Novocherkassk, Softgrad Solutions).
Vladimir Saveliev - Oxidize (Russia, Ufa).
Denis Labyskin - r2d2 (Russia, Samara, Netcracker).
Constantine Pervin - mustang (Russia, Samara).
Pavel Savilov - cheeser (Russia, Moscow, Glowbyte).
Igor Korshunov - WildCat (Belarus, Gomel).
The intrigue remained until the very end. The rating of Pavel Savilov, Igor Korshunov and Denis “ud1” Utkin was the same, and only the time of their last accepted submissions allowed us to order them.
Now the Sandbox is frozen, but in the coming days it will resume its work with some adjustments of the game balance. The Sandbox will work for several months. Of course, all results will be unofficial. Note that we won’t support the Sandbox as during the championship.
Attention! All participants of Round 2 and the Finals should make sure they specified an actual address and t-shirt size in their profile.
