AI size challenge

Inspired by AI size limits https://forum.gladiabots.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1180 discussion I decided to first try it in action.

ElvenMonky10 is my 10-node AI and I want you to bit it using as few nodes as you can. Build your AI, try different maps, team setups, counterstrategies..
Once you won, post a replay id and number of nodes in your AI here.
Only random/ranked format maps (scoring, 4 bots) will be accepted.

(Edited:)
To participate just send me a private match invitation and I will maintain 3 private matches always available for your experiments. However, I'm not 24/7 online, so use attempts wisely. If you need more, just let me know.
You can also gamble to meet ElvenMonky10 in master league.

Let deadline be undefined for now, first let's see how it goes.

Winner AI could be used as a next challenge, so it might be recurring, with winner title moving from one player to another.

Am I allowed to use more than 1 AI in my team or is this a generic AI tournament?

Only 1 AI for team, but any bots.
Also root node doesn't count towards ai size.
Connectors probably too, if you really need them.

Please ignore the following three matches, because the game auto-deployed my main AI: 985328, 985330 and 985332.
I was surprised how well your bots defended my generic AI with 2100 ELO :shock: :o

985339 and 985340 are also deployed by a mistake, please ignore.

Guys don't worry :) Unless you post number of nodes, along with replay number here, it will be ignored. Pls, also save AI of your best attempt until end of challenge, so that we can verify, that node count announced was accurate.

Please, also let me know if you want me to pre-deploy private matches for you and how many.

I did it :) I won two matches against ElvenMonk10 with my 9 nodes AI, but I also lost two matches and did one draw:

986378 win / 986380 lose / 986501 lose / 986504 win / 986506 draw

I guess we should play more matches against each other or consider me the new champion, because my AI is smaller. ;)

I think, single victory is enough.
However, I'd give others few days to try to get even better results. In case of 2 best AIs with same number of nodes, lets consider the winner the one posted earlier.

So, masterplayer is winner with 9-node AI.

Here is my 10-node AI, used for challenge:

It appiared, that moving to enemy is not necessary here, freeing up space for dropping resource in case of danger..

Masterplayer, would you like to take over the challenge?

Why I don't want to take over the challenge:
1) it would be easier for others to beat my AI, because your AI is better at fighting
2) I'm too lazy to deploy many matches ;)

With that said, here is my AI for comparison:

No, thanks. I'm still working on all action AIs, then I'll try something interesting I have in my mind and then try to write my best AI for 4 assaults team, and then... Anyway it's a lot of things to do, no time for regular tournaments. :)
