1v1 Schemaverse Battles

A tournament of 1v1 schemaverse battles, each round taking only about 10 minutes. No prepared scripts allowed!

The Schemaverse is a space-based strategy game implemented entirely within a PostgreSQL database. Compete against other players using raw SQL commands to command your fleet. Or, if your PL/pgSQL-foo is strong, wield it to write AI and have your fleet command itself!

This year, rather than the classic large space battle, the rounds will be 1v1 and only take 10 minutes each. There will also be NO pre-created scripts allowed. Matches will be broadcast live for all to see and a ladder updated after each round.

Prizes and other fun details to be announced as we get closer to the date.
