Russian AI Cup 2017 - D language support
November 17
Hi!

Russian AI Cup (http://russianaicup.ru) is an annual online AI programming competition by Mail.Ru Group.  This year, the task is to write a bot which plays a real-time strategy against other programmer's bots.  The competition runs from November 13 to December 24, 2017, and the first elimination round starts on November 24.

Traditionally, several programming languages are supported by contest authors, and a few other with some help from the community.  I added support for D this year (again), the language pack and example bot can be found here:

So, if you'd like to give it a try: good luck and have fun!

Ivan Kazmenko.

Cool! Is there any history of people using D in the past for this competition?

A few people used D each year it had support, to various success.
The highest so far, I think, is Vladislav Isenbaev in 2013.
He got 11-th place in the finals:
