Torch Up: Brood War AI Tournament is a recurring annual online event that has been held yearly since 2020. It is currently organized by the Spacebeam community as annual FOSDEM side event (end of January/beginning of February).

The results of the tournament are presented at FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium.

Organization[edit]

It should be stressed that Torch Up has a greater focus on AI research instead of the coding of bots for Windows using C++ or Java, as the AIIDE does.

All bots play several round-robins, with a second stage or knock-out matches between the top 4. The competition encourages but don't require the use of Linux and support of BWAPI wrappers for languages outside C++ or Java.

The tournament have native support for TorchCraft bots using both Python and Lua.
