AlphaStar is an AI that plays Starcraft 2. I want to know if AlphaStar can play FFA (free-for-all, basically there are 4+ players in the same game and the winner is the last player standing).

Is this question on-topic?

  • "Can" in what sense? Is it theoretically possible, is it currently practically possible, can it be engineered by you to do so?

Our site is generally more about questions that relate to actually playing games, however, we do classify Game-specific utilities as on-topic:

  • Gameplay strategies and tactics
  • Puzzle solving or obstacle clearing
  • Game mechanics and terminology
  • Plot and characters in games
  • Game-specific hardware and utilities

Based on Merriam-Webster's definition of utility, this AI is certainly purposed towards playing a video game and is game-specific, therefore I think the question is on-topic.
