This project focuses on the problem of avoiding troop loss by identifying good tactical groupings. Banding separated units together using UCT (Upper Confidence bounds applied to Trees) along with a learned reward model outperforms grouping heuristics at winning battles while preserving resources. Our Adjutant bot design won the best Newcomer honor at CIG 2012
