Will human players find a winning strategy against the OpenAI Five bots?

Given how few games the OpenAI bots have played against top-tier human players, it's unclear how robust the OpenAI bots are. The OG team felt confident that given more games they'd be able to adapt and find a winning strategy.

@OG_BDN0tail says that he thinks with 10 games, they’d be able to win; with 50 games, win consistently. Would be super interesting to see... - GDB

OpenAI announced the OpenAI Five Arena, which will allow anyone to sign up to play against OpenAIs best in class bots.

Will players in OpenAI's Arena find a winning strategy against the OpenAI Five?

This question will resolve positively if a team made up of all human players finds a "strategy" that reliably leads to victory against the OpenAI Five bots. This strategy needs to be reproducible by other players, and publicly disclosed.

  • An examples of this type of strategy is, at the International, OpenAI's earlier versions of the bot made simplistic errors when being "kited" by humans. Human players could exploit that again and again to do heavy damage to the AI heroes and lead to humans winning.
  • In one of the AlphaStar matches the bot seemed to glitch in its unit movements, allowing Mana to waltz in and destroy its base. If that is a reproducible exploit, it would count as a strategy.


Metaculus help: Predicting

Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.

The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available.

The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.

Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Community Stats

Metaculus help: Community Stats

Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.

When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
