AnzaThough it would still be cool to get at least few tiles claimed for one of the Linux groups.
Yeah. At one point yesterday our little efforts got us into second place on that square, but we have now been pushed completely off the list.

Other strategies may come clear over the next day or so, but it looks like our small numbers here won't make a dent. Maybe someone should make a post to r/linux_gaming.

I have now given up on trying to claim any square for GOL. The goal seems to be just to get enough XP to claim the level 6 badge.

Conjecture is that Steam may put some new higher-XP levels in the mix, but the auto-scripts are pretty much mandatory to get enough points right now. Personally, I have now switched to this script:

Some discussion here:

Note - at the time of this writing, that script does not do anything "bad" but always be careful about pasting strange javascript into your browser.

I seem to have stumbled upon the secret of levelling up. I was curious about the boss level and let the script run to see one appear. Then played the boss level manually. I went two rounds through about half the boss health and earned about 350.000 points. Something that the script doesn't appear to do by itself. Not the SteamDB one anyway.

The author of the script I linked to is away on holiday and so hasn't updated it for the bosses. I switched over to xPaw's PHP script which works well, but takes more setup.

Got my 6th badge now, so I am happy.

I got my badge without scripts, real effort there.

the boss is going down man. I was the only none bot, I can tell because I was throwing bombs and other weapons other than the salien special. Basically I was leading all those bots into victory, throwing freeze, space bombs, meteors and stuff. IMAO

by the way that meteor on the head is mine, it can be considered that it gave him the final touch.

normal battles were boring, but the final one was epic.
