Students of the AI-Competition team of the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT) and L3S have successfully participated in the AI competition Battlesnake. In three events in November and December, they beat over 40 other bots and won the competition as the best team with the title Winter Classic Champion (veteran division). The snake from Hannover is called "Niedersächsische Kreuzotter" (Lower Saxonian Viper). On March 15, 2020, the team will travel to Victoria BC, Canada, to compete with over 700 developers.
