The Corewar DynaHill

Christian Schmidt has announced the opening of a new Corewar hill with a ranking system similar to Japanese Sumo. The Corewar DynaHill is of unlimited size. New warriors enter at the bottom and at certain time intervals each warrior fights 15 neighbours.

Depending on the number of wins / losses, each warrior moves either up or down a number of positions. Eventually, the warrior will be unable to climb higher, possibly becoming King of the DynaHill!

'94draft and limited process warriors co-exist on the hill. If a '94draft warrior battles against a limited process warrior, a random number of processes is chosen between 40 and 120.

The use of PIN and MAXPROCESSES is forbidden. The maximum length is 200.

For more information, take a look at The Corewar DynaHill FAQ.

Okay, I must concede this is the first time in all my years on teh Internet that I can ever recall coming across Corewar. Now, I'm not going to pretend I know all about it but I'm at least going to try and make this more meaningful than the guy above me. So, here goes...

Oooh, this is like a techy version of battleships. Er, sumo wrestling rules!

Sorry, I tried. :)

Stumbled, Sitehopped and dropped.
