Tournaments

Tournament Information

This year we are running two BattleCode tournaments. Both tournaments will have identical gameplay and the specifications for the tournaments will be released in early January.

The MIT tournament is the 6.370 competition you all know and love. We will have two weeks of lectures at MIT followed by our action-packed tournament in Kresge Auditorium at the start of February. Participation is limited to MIT students. Students must register using their Athena e-mail account.

The open tournament will run at the end of March. Almost anyone interested may participate (see below for exceptions). Open tournament participants will compete in the same fashion as MIT tournament participants. The Open Tournament will be held completely virtually. For dates and times, please see our calendar. Anyone may compete, but only students at participating universities may win prizes. Those universities are:

  • MIT
  • Berkeley
  • Boston College
  • Boston University
  • Brown
  • CalTech
  • Carnegie Mellon
  • Columbia
  • Cornell

Unfortunately, we are not extending the Open Tournament to all potential participants. Any person currently affiliated with one of BattleCode's sponsor companies may not compete in either tournament. In addition, MIT tournament particpants from the top 16 teams may not compete in the open tournament.
