Grodbot wins Bot Bowl I
A really awesome guy, Niel Justesen, created an AI competition for Blood Bowl as part of his PhD in machine learning. As part of my PhD (or rather, when I was supposed to be writing my PhD in mechanical engineering but got majorly distracted) I created the Grodbot almost 10 years ago in Java.

Fast forward those ~10 years later, with the AI competition at hand, I taught myself Python and re-programmed the GrodBot. The result?

Go the GrodBot, winner of Bot Bowl I!

So, who will be ready for Bot Bowl II?

(For anyone interested, follow the the original project or my fork).

That's a fantastic achievement and a great contribution. I look forwards to the day I lose to the AI and can learn from it.

Was there a Cyanide entry? ;)

Cyanide lost to Random, but their lawyers secured name suppression.

^ remember when Cyanide's lawyers secured name suppression of Fumbbl in NAF's "Great Big Blood Bowl Survey"?
