Server shutdown on 2019-09-01

Thanks for participating in the Artificial Overmind league. The league is now over, as not much games are played anymore, and we must shift our focus to new challenges.

The match runner will be shut down on Sunday 2019-09-01, and this website is going disappear soon after that. If you have any replays that you would like to keep, please download them during until the rest of this month. If you have any questions, feel free to reach me on Discord (Dentosal#2765).

I hope you had fun, I sure did.
Var'un ruul asz,

Why we created the Artificial Overmind Challenge

It all began with one developer’s determination to combine his love for programming with e-sports. He developed a library that allowed him (or anyone) to develop bots to play StarCraft II. The idea proved popular inside Reaktor, and the Artificial Overmind Challenge was born.

In January 2019, we invited gamers and developers in Finland to take part. Over 100 teams signed up, and the 5 best took part in the grand finals in Helsinki. Starcraft II World Champion Serral joined the party, and challenged the winning bot to a match. That time, humanity won.

Now the story continues.
