The correct choice of strategy is crucial for a successful real-time strategy (RTS) game player. Generally speaking, a strategy determines the sequence of actions the player will take in order to defeat his/her opponents. In this paper we present a systematic study of strategy selection in the popular RTS game StarCraft. We treat the choice of strategy as a game itself and test several strategy selection techniques, including Nash Equilibrium and safe opponent exploitation. We adopt a subset of AIIDE 2015 StarCraft AI tournament bots as the available strategies and our results suggest that it is useful to deviate from Nash Equilibrium to exploit sub-optimal opponents on strategy selection, confirming insights from computer rock-paper-scissors tournaments.
The theory of punctuated equilibrium suggests evolution happens, not gradually and unnoticeably, but in short bursts with immediate and noticeable changes. Building applications has changed incrementally over the past 70 years: From Machine Code, to Assembly, to High-Level Languages. Each increment provided more productivity, automatic optimizations, abstraction, human readability, modularity, and security and reliability checks. Low-Code is the next evolutionary step that will undoubtedly change how we develop software. Come see the next burst in action - Low-Code development - and how it will change the industry forever.
