Halite Tournaments Season III is here!

This is going to be a very special season since the format of
the tournament has changed!

  • This will be a 2v2 tournament, the teams will be
    randomly chosen every round, meaning that once
    a team wins the two players in that team will
    pass the round and be part of a different team
    the next round.

  • The format will be double elimination, meaning that
    there will be two players coming from the losers
    brackets.

  • The finals, however, will be 4FFA so prepare
    yourself to both 2v2 and 4FFA!

The constants have also changed, here is a brief overview:

  • Starting Ship Count: 5
  • More Planets
  • 4000ms timeout per turn
  • Faster ships
  • Ship regeneration
  • Lower weapon damage
  • Bigger explosion radius
  • Bigger docking radius
  • Faster production

Due to the changes with the 2v2 mode, you will have to know the id
of your team mate. This will be pretty easy for you to implement
because: Player #0 is always with Player#2 and
Player#1 is always with Player#3, so you will have to write
something like this: https://goo.gl/FkzzGN
