I’m strictly against my opponent using AI, ranked game or not*. Go players seem so old-fashioned to the minutest details, but I guess “gentlemen’s agreement” flies out the window at the drop of a hat. When we offer or accept a challenge with a human, we expect to play a human. If I want to play AI, I’ll choose a bot. It’s baseline respect.
As far as the guidelines are concerned: In general, I’m wary of people searching for the loophole on principle. Some people seem to drive straight to “how can I game the system”, and I don’t like those people.
*Yes, I know I’m not able to find out or even tell if my opponent uses AI.
The first thing I think about the bots is “yay, someone spent time and resources to provide the community with a bot”, not “eh, they get data, I can exploit it”.
Eh, I can understand if someone doesn’t like it. Dwyrin is nice and all, but other players don’t exist for his videos.
EDIT: And about the original question: for me, the right thing to do would be for the player to write in the name of the game “AI used against bot”, if the game is part of their record anywhere. If someone has 50 wins against kata-bot and they don’t disclose they used AI, I’m pretty sure their intention wasn’t to explore the endless game possibilities.
