This post is about the Starcraft bot I am developing using machine learning. The project is being developed as part of the "Daj Się Poznać 2017" competition.

Every aspiring Starcraft 2 player knows that it is not enough to play to be good. You need, among other things, to analyze your games, as well as the games of other players who are better than you. It would be nice if my bot could do something like that too, at least to a limited extent. I will therefore need replays. Where to get them from? The most common way is to take them from sites like or, where they are published by players. Organizers of large tournaments also provide game packs from professional players, but searching the Internet to get these packs does not interest me.
