How strong is the new iCE


iCE 1.0 has not played enough games in CCRL yet to be included in the official ranking there.

But I already got some feedback from other testers that the new version is a significant improvement of more than 200 ELO.




This little tournament was run with the 32 bit version and a time control of 5 minutes a game. Lars Hallerström was so kind to give me permission to post them. Thanks again.

78 Ice 1.0 : 2703  840 (+367,=226,-247), 57.1 %

Bug2 1.9                      :  40 (+ 14,= 12,- 14), 50.0 %


So here iCE gained 243 ELO points compared with iCE 0.3. This is a huge jump and I guess iCE 1.0 will now enter also the Top 100 in CCRL. So I probably need a new goal.
