According to your phone and graphics settings, gladiabots uses for sure a lot of cpu (I do think is multithreaded but I do not think is real concurrent processing, like many games, so one core gets maxed out) and likely a lot of GPU. If your phone is powerful, high computational power needs drain the battery pretty fast.

Try to lower the gfx settings.

The rule of thumb is: the cooler is the phone, the less power you are using, likely the less computational needs.


'Kayyy.

And yet again, there's a bug!

The "IfAnyEnemyCarriesResource" Condition is not working.

Yes I can.
But unless I need it to debug something, I never do it.

Making AI editor faster?
Never thought of it!

I have some new leads on possible optimizations ;)

Like pier4r explained, the game is using your smartphone GPU pretty extensively.
Could you tell me which model you are using and if you notice any difference between menu screens (like AI editor) and game screen?

pier4r wrote:Minor bug (or at least I think it is unwanted).

In relation to this: https://trello.com/c/EnVurVVc

The top players are promoted, but the lower ones (that should be demoted) are not. So in league3 there was a guy with ~980 points and another one with ~1090 points and 1000+ games, players may be tricked to think "ah ok, I can lose a lot of points that I will never leave the league". So this may be misleading.


I just fixed it, thanks for reporting it ;)

I'm using a Redmi Note 3. Adreno 510 GPU. AI Editor uses the largest amount of Battery.

And yeah, I care.

Training mode. I deployed a Dribbler (CatchResource>DropResource>Repeat) against some bots which were supposed to kill Resource Carrying Enemy first. They simply ignored the Dribbler.

OK so another bullet for the AI editor ^^'

They may miss it because their AI tick passes between 2 cath & drop?

Dribbler catches
Dribbler drops
Attacker sees dropped resource
Dribbler catches
Dribbler drops

...

Is your dribbler a shotgun and your attacker from another class?

Nope. Both are Assault.

You have 2 Dribblers that are going off one after the other. I am using a single Dribbler. And they're not confusing the Killers.

This 5.3.1 is awesome, I feel the same engagement of alpha 4.3, even better due to the random maps and random pairings. (I mean, without player selection)

I'm thinking maybe he expects the pre patch behavior back when it was insanely fun and OP to dribble :lol:

My killer isn't getting confused. It is just killing the Dribbler. I expected what you got.

Go on and check Multi-Tasker One or Anti-Dribbler.

Anyway I#m quite sure that sunway something and skidrow are second accounts. Sunway should be the second account of nullpointer. Sorry nullpointer.

Reached 1690, new personal best. Almost there to be first. Mind game (that is very a mind game so I do not like it so much) took me 20 points (christian) and christian did well also on circle of death.
