Biography

Sharpened Edge

The name for Sharpened Edge comes from the company name Sharpened Edge Studios Oy. The company name comes from a private joke we had in a World of Warcraft guild back in the vanilla WoW.

Creation

Sharpened Edge was created in 2019-01-07 to play in Reaktor Artificial Overmind Challenge. It first played Terran. It was decided that Sharpened Edge would play Protoss because it seemed like the hardest race for bots to play at the moment and it also seemed somewhat unpopular.

Artificial Overmind Challenge / Ladder

In Artificial Overmind Challenge Sharpened Edge was placed 3rd when there were 5 finalists. In the live finals in Helsinki SE won against BaseTrade and lost against spudde missing the grand final and sponsored game against Serral. Later when Reaktor released Artificial Overmind Ladder in 2019, SE did get first place when the ladder was ending and got live match against Serral. Couldn't beat him unfortunately.

Probots

Sharpened Edge won its first ever Probots tournament, Season 2 in 2019. Couldn't hold a candle against EnderSword the human in the meatbags vs bots show matches.

Design

Sharpened Edge was designed from the first moment to be more of a framework that can play multiple builds and different bots. Cornerstone of quality control for SE is running SE against its lesser siblings in an automated batch run. If someone uses a build, it should be easy to replicate with SE framework and test against the dummy version of that build without requiring the actual bot that invented the build.

Playstyle

Scripted python bot with multiple base strategies. Sharpened Edge can adjust its strategy based on scouting information and it tries to make educated guesses when is proper time to expand or attack.

The goal for Sharpened Edge is to play the game and make decisions like a human would. It tries to be unpredictable, but also react correctly when it is appropriate. Data is used for analysis when an opponent plays with predictable tactics.

Libraries used

The bot uses pathing and influence mapping from sc2 path lib, development frameworks sharpy-sc2 and API from python-sc2
