Hello everyone!
Today we are going to open the doors to our Battlestar Galactica Deadlock Tournament!

“What is this tournament?”, you ask? It’s our way to involve our community, let them play with other users, win some prizes and (hopefully) build new relationships between us all!

 

Let’s get down to business: RULES!
- You have time until the 26thof September to join the tournament. We will then randomly pick the players and publish the bracket the following day. The tournament will officially start with the first matches during the second half of that week.
- When the bracket comes out, the players of each pair will have to decide when to play their game and the game rules (which factions they will choose, how long should each turn last and max points available for their fleets). We will do our best to pair players with the same time zone, this way it will be easier for them to agree on date and time of the game.
- This will be a 16-players tournament. The first round will see these players fight in 8 1v1 battle. The winners will proceed to the quarter finals, in 4 1v1 battles. Then the semi-finals will see 2 1v1 battles, and the winners will fight in the finals to claim victory!
- If a player doesn’t show at the agreed time of the game, his adversary will wait for 10 minutes. After that he/she will have to send a mail to our admin, then he/she wins the game. Before the game begins, both players will have to take a screenshot to prove that they are actually taking part in the game. At the end of the game, the winner will have to send a mail to our admin with a screenshot that proves their victory.
- Single elimination. You lose, you’re out.
- The player that achieves victory will be rewarded with something special we can’t talk about yet! The second place will also receive a consolation prize!
- Have fun!

You can join the tournament HERE!

We are also going to have a small tournament between members of Slitherine and Matrix staff, so don’t forget to check out our Twitch stream today and tomorrow at 11 AM EDT / 4 PM BST / 5 PM CEST!
Of course, our favourite streamer Agrippa will take part too, so be sure to follow us!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Orks units preview

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Heavily-muscled, aggressive, eight-foot-tall fungal thugs with a love of warfare, the Orks were a spacefaring peril long before the human Imperium entered the galactic scene. Spread evenly across the galaxy, for the most part they are an irritant to any other inhabitants, like lazy, belligerent neighbours. But occasionally, as a swarm of locusts, the scattered tribes and clans form into a Waaagh! – something between a crusade and a riot – and devastate entire sectors until they run out of things to fight and fall instead into internecine warfare.
