  • Can I still compete at Battlesnake if I help out building the software?
    Yes, as long as you don't try and add code that helps you win! :)
  • I want my snake latency to be as low as possible, what cloud & region are you in?
    Google Compute Platform - US-West-1
  • Is there a list of specific IPs that my snake can whitelist to prevent scrapers and crawlers from hitting my snake? Unfortunately, at this time, we don't support an IP whitelist.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
