Luschen Botmatch Bot Settings Updated

As you may know you can change the bot settings of the Luschen Botmatch server (and the Luschen GunRace +bots server) at the M's Kingpin Server List page. You can change the number of bots, their skill level and the game mode.

has let me know that a new setting has been added that can also be amended by players.

The new setting is called Bot Skill Deviation ans is explained in the following:-

The new percentage setting for the botmatch server:

When it is set to 0, all bots will play at the skill level set (6 in the screen above).
If you set it to a different value, the bots’ skill will deviate.
Let’s say current botskill is 4 and you set the percentage to 50%, it will make the worst bot play 50% below the overall skill level, so the worst bot will play at level 2 (4 * 50% = 2).
The best bot will play 50% above that level, which would be 6 (4 * 150% = 6).
All other bots in between will have their individual skill spread out evenly, so if there are 6 bots, their skill would be spread out like this:

Kingpin: 6
Duke: 5
B&B: 4
MrBurns: 3.3
Homer: 3
LadieDie: 2

Smaller percentages will make the field more narrow.

If you set it to 100%, the best bot will play at twice the overall skill level (capped at 10 though) and the worst bot plays at level 0.

This allows you to create fields of bots that might fit the Human players better. 

The “Bot Hunt” setting (which is disabled in the screen above), will make the bots raise right to skill level 10 if a Human player leads by more than 4 frags. This setting is brutal as we learned ;) So we made it optional.
