Brawlwood ranking bugs


#1

I emailed the team, but I thought I’d post it here in case anyone else ran into the problem.
I created a solution for Brawlwood that seems to beat everyone that I’ve encountered, I’m using python, and I usually finish within 47 seconds or so with 1400+ gold collected. In any case, I am not cheating, yet there are some people that I play against that it says I lost, and when I click on the link to review the loss, it’s actually a win.

What’s up with the ranking? Is it some dishonest person messing with the simulations?

I guess I’ll add to this… I already had a solution, which was okay but not great. I decided the best way was to take one of the top ten on the humans (i’m playing as ogre) and click ‘fight’ then come up with a solution to beat them. well, it did work, I beat him handily, and added to my repertoire of tricks. Maybe that was the cause of the weird ranking issue… I don’t know. I’m willing to bet though that it’s some joker out there messing with the simulations.


#2

More likely it’s some new bug (again) with discrepancies in our Simulator. How many of your simulated matches disagree? What’s your CodeCombat username?


#3

It seemed that all the losses disagreed. I’ve since reset my code, haven’t bothered to write it again. I wasn’t sure that I could trust the ranking on that one, so why bother?

In any case, my name in game is Napillo.


#4

I did want to add that before editing my code, I did simulate a hundred or so games.


#5

This bug seems to be affecting me. Check NoJuice4U - Humans
Many of my losses show up as victories when I try to review, and there is no discrepancy between the code I submitted for ranking versus what’s used in the review, as I haven’t modified anything since I submitted for ranking. I suspect that a number of my wins may also be losses possibly due to a random seed not being consistent?


#6

I’ve just adjusted the random seed calculation to make sure it was the way it was when the level was first created. I doubt that’s actually the problem, but perhaps it will help. Are the losses that show up as victories close matches?


#7

I still get this regularly on cavern survival… losses that when clicked on show i won… just fyi


#8

I resubmitted for ranking and checked 3 of my losses. It’s definitely more consistent now, as all 3 losses will replay as a loss.

Thanks!
