WillyT is a StarCraft AI playing Terran. It is the successor of WillBot. It uses opening learning, but buildorders are not strictly fixed. It can adapt facing some common AI strategies like 4-pool, cannon rush or air unit strategies.

Strategies[edit]

  • "Rush": Inspired by an old bot by Oleg Ostroumov, it does a hard push with at least 15 bio units and some scvs. Later it mixes bio and mech.
  • 1 Rax FE, mixing bio and mech
  • 1 Rax FE, mech units only
  • "Tonk": 3 Fac Expand, almost tank only. Move out very late. This build was specially designed to beat Stardust's original pure goon play.


Generally builds only Terran ground units, but also uses dropships for taking island expansion and drops.

A learning analysis can be found in this Steamhammer Blog Post: "AIIDE 2021 - what WillyT learned"
