SAL's Tiny LP Hill
The Tiny LP Hill is located on
the SAL Server. On May 2005 it opened its gate for business. The specification for the hill are:
Hill key: tinylp
Core size: 800
Max processes: 8
Max cycles: 8000
Max length: 50
instruction set: extended ICWS '94 Draft
P-space size: 50
Tiny LP settings were first used in round 22 of the Redcoder's Frenzy Tournament. After the round a test hill with just 15 slots was openend and is still alive until now.
Critics of the tiny hill would have you believe it dominated by one-shots, with no other strategy standing a chance! While one-shots place well for relatively little effort - they are at a disadvantage. Their score varies widely, depending on their opponent's steps, boot distance, etc. As authors of new entries take advantage of this, the one-shot's days on the hill are limited.
The tiny LP hill is not really frequently played but as it isn't well developed so far it might be interesting for beginners.
Level of Hill: MEDIUM
