Abstract

This article presents an evolutionary algorithm for optimizing the
offensive behavior of opposing units in the real-time strategy game
StarCraft II. Encounters between different unit groups are examined and
described. The goal for each group is to deal maximal damage to the
opposing group while receiving a minimal amount of damage at the same
time. The actions each unit performs are determined by accumulating a
number of predefined potential fields. Dependent on the statistics of
the involved units, the parameters of these fields then fully describe
the behavior of each individual unit. Since this includes a huge number
of possibilities, the set of optimal parameter values for both groups in
an encounter is obtained by applying an evolutionary algorithm.
