Ok, well this has been interesting. I have a few things to say/ask:

  • Do theives work for anyone? For me they come out as peasants. (screenshot A)
  • Also the ladder doesn’t seem to work all that well. When I look at the matches I’ve played it says I’ve lost games which I’ve actually won.
  • How’s everyone else getting on with summoning depending on what they’ve summoned?

The loss thing happend to me too. Try to reload the page to see their actual troops, not the starter archer information. Or if it is not that it means that that person have submited a new code before you watched the match. And the thieves work for me, check the spelling. (When there is a gramatical error or a troop that is not of one of the types that the game gives you, you will get peasants instead of that troop.)

Thank you very much :smile:. I feel like a bit of a fool about the spelling…

Thank you, this also works for me.

Welcome back to the forum @Gypsyfly I tried it again but it didn’t solve the problem, I signed up for CodeQuest a day before it started but I didn’t got any emails for the game link, I had to use the link that Nick provided me to enter the competition.

Sounds awesome @nick! :tada: Unfortunately I can’t participate myself, but I have to say it’s an awesome opportunity to win those great prizes as well as earn recognition. :eyes: Best of luck to everyone that’s participating!

How to change the language from JS to Python in The Battle of Red Cliffs?

Yes I second that question. I am guessing Javascript is “outlawed” in the tournament?

no i’ve seen people using it.

How do you get your troops to attack the weakest enemy anyway?

You can write findWeakest() function.

@Deadpool198 @AnSeDra and others: I’m looking at this bug where you sometimes see default code (all archers) for enemies on the ladder. Can you share any more information? Do you see this all the time, or just sometimes? For red or blue or both? Against certain opponents and not others? Does refreshing sometimes, always, or never fix it?

@weary @2Flowers You can use JavaScript if you want. To change your code language, take a ladder URL, like this one:

https://codecombat.com/play/level/battle-of-red-cliffs?team=ogres&opponent=5f25a096f37fad002465b4d1

and add &codeLanguage=javascript or &codeLanguage=python to it:

https://codecombat.com/play/level/battle-of-red-cliffs?team=ogres&opponent=5f25a096f37fad002465b4d1&codeLanguage=python

Then rewrite your code in the new language and resubmit to the ladder.

It’s very inconsistent for me. Mostly it’s happened against AnSeDra, (on the moment on the blue side, but it’s happened on both), normally it fixes after one reload. However it also happened against cqfuzhengyuan (23, blue) and it only fixed after two reloads. I had thought it was only against people I lost to, but in both of these examples I won. I can’t really link anything between them further than that. But it doesn’t happen very often to me at the moment.

For me it happened against @Deadpool198 on both sides and after I refreshed, I saw that he had a different code. This also happened when I wanted to see why do I lose battles, but after one refresh (and one time two refreshes) I could see the oponent’s army, not the archers.
