Play against DeepMind AI in StarCraft II for a limited time

Play against DeepMind AI in StarCraft II for a limited time”

These stipulations have been put in place in an effort to ensure that players don't try to adjust strategies to counter AlphaStar. As part of the ongoing research into artificial intelligence, AlphaStar is soon going to be active in a small number of games on the European competitive ladder.

"Having AlphaStar play anonymously helps be certain that it's a managed take a look at, so that the experimental versions of the agent experience gameplay as near a standard 1v1 ladder match as doable", Blizzard defined. DeepMind explained in a Q&A session released today by Blizzard that they are disguising AlphaStar in the hope that this will allow its games to proceed as a normal 1v1 ladder match would. To ensure validity of the research, the AI will appear as a regular human player in order to ensure no one goes easy on it.

AlphaStar will play as a member of Terran, Zerg, or Protoss races in the game, and will only be tested against StarCraft II players in Europe.

A cutting-edge AI from DeepMind will be playing the game anonymously in public matches. Players will be paired according to normal matchmaking rules. "DeepMind will launch the analysis ends in a peer-reviewed scientific paper together with replays of AlphaStar's matches".

Earlier this year DeepMind's game-playing agent AlphaStar trounced pro human players in a special series of StarCraft II matches.

Still, AlphaStar's prowess has come under scrutiny, not all of it good. Furthermore, it will only be able to perceive the map using a camera-like perspective. "This means that AlphaStar doesn't receive information about its opponent unless it is within the camera's field of view, and it can only move units to locations within its view". It is going even to have tighter restrictions imposed on its actions per minute and per second than it did in its January matches. "All limits on AlphaStar's performance were designed in consultation with pro players".
