Re-Volt Rookie AI Cup

Unread post by TOVA » Sat Mar 16, 2019 9:56 pm

As Wichilie and URV suggested me, I'll release here results of the Competition.
You might ask me "What the hell is R.AI.C?"Well, I'm running to you with explanations.
R.AI.C is the part of AI Cup, where cars controlled by AI compete in Time Trial mode. First season (Rookie) is a bit experimental, maybe I'll improve something in the future.
The season consist of 15 events: 14 rounds on stock tracks and the Championship. Last round on the stock track (ToyTanic 2) is the Grand Final, where only TOP 30 vechicles are competing.
Each round consist of 2 runs: 1st done in standard way and 2nd in reverse one. Final result is the addition of both times. If car will come back to start line (because of reposition on-demand), then he gets "0" seconds and gets last positions (if there are more cars with "0" than places out of TOP 30 after 1st run, then they can compete to themselves only). Vechicle that gets the best time, wins.
I'm using FIS Ski Jumping points system:
1st-100pts
2nd-80
3rd-60
4-50
5-45
6-40
etc... (You'll see all of results on the Points Ladder)
.
.
.
29-2
30-1
31,32,33...-0

Now, what is the Championship? It's the way to make Cup more attractive. It's the special round happens in the middle of season (between 7th and 8th round, so now it is veery soon). The event is divided on 4 days where cas ar challenging in Time Trial mode on 4 very long (above 1km) tracks (Normal way only). If vechicle doesn't finish some track, the it cannot take part in further runs (when more cars fail in 1st run, then their position demands on Cup standins, if cars fail on further tracks, hen their final position is determined by position after previous runs. Championships are very interesting because Points system at the end of event is:
Regular Round points multiplied by 4 (400,320,240,200, etc.)

From now on, all results, opinions, commentaries will appear here only. I don't know yet, how will I release them (will ask mods about that).

Re-Volt Opinions (#1)

Unread post by TOVA » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:07 am

There's sunday since 7 minutes right now and I am typing my first thinks and opinions about AI Cup. I hope I won't fall asleep while writing, but if I'll do that, then i just finish it with "To Be Continued" sentence and carry it on another day. But first of all, I would like to thanks to Wichilie for suggesting me to set this topic on the forum (and to URV for bumping the idea).

We are on th almost-halfway to get to know the best Rookie car. First races belonged to Bendor that won 4 round with quite huge vantage over other vechicles. However he has got troubles with more technical rounds. On "Rooftops" and "Toy World 1" he entered walls after loosing control and stucked there, because he stepped back to short and he wasn't able to finish these rounds. Then Phenom attacked, he won during Bendor's absence so Phenom became the new Leader. After 7th round he has got 40 pts of advantage. In my opinion Phenom will win whole Cup because his driving style is very stable: double victory, triple 2nd place, 3rd and 6th. Of course Bendor won 5 times, however, he also was out of best 30 - so far he's like light bulb - either he drives brilliantly or fails on some wall.
What about Fast Traxx (3rd pos.)? In theory, he may stay there, he loses 121 pts to Bendor and 161 to Phenom. He tries to chase leading couple, forgetting about rival he wouldn't expect: Perfect Shot. Who did suppose the slowest rookie car will get the place just behind the podium of the ladder and finish some competition in TOP 3 (even twice - once losing 0.7 secs to winner). Perfect proves he isn't a surprise, he is full-time competitor, he failed only once, on "Rooftops", where he could even there finish as 3rd and I think Traxx might have huge problems with him after some time.


Now shortly about some other vechicles:
-Swish KX2 had got very good beggining: double 4th and double 8th place, but now he has got problems with getting good positions (actually it's started partially on "Botanical Garden" where he had to attack from 25th place)
-I've expected better results from Dr Grudge, Besides 3rd place o "Rooftops" he performs rather average style.
-Almost this same sentence I would say about RC Bandit, but he's waking up: 10th and 11th during last 2 rounds.
-Heatroad, after horrible beginning, is chasing opponents: 11th, 8th and 13th in last 3 events.
-Road Pirate disappoints so far. He failed 3 races.
-SchoolVolt won't run away from 30th+ Abyss. He is losing 35 pts to 30th Alien (that maybe won't appear in Grand Final)


That's all for this post. Some day I'll write my opinions before Rookie Championships.

Just before Rookie Championships...

Unread post by TOVA » Sun Mar 17, 2019 6:49 pm

Probably today I'll manage 1st run of the Championships.
Vechicles compete on 4 tracks:
1. SS-Highway
2. RV Temple
3. Holiday Camp - California Edition
4. Moon Dawn
As I've said, I start today, further runs are done every second day, I think.


Without monologues - how will TOP 5 look like?
I found 2 versions:
a) Bendor finishes every track:
1. Phenom
2. Bendor
3. LR 64
4. Perfect Shot
5. Fast Traxx

b) Bendor fails:
1. Phenom
2. LR 64
3. Perfect Shot
4. Fast Traxx
5. El Gekko.

How will look Classification after 25% of Tournament? We will see today at night.
