GlowBlow is a micro sized 1v1 bot with a pattern matching gun. I'd say that this is my test-lab. It's where GlowBlowAPM and GlowBlowMelee started.

What's special about it?

I dont like his ranking :)

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?


How competitive is it?

It once was in the eternal rumble top 10. but since then it is falling down...

How does it move?

chose a velocity and search a "good" point, then go there till the bullet might reach the current position

How does it fire?

it's a PatternMatching bot with heading change and velocity (but nearly every version had other inputs)

How does it dodge bullets?

it doesn't at the moment

How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?

no difference, it's a 1v1 bot

How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?

it's a 1v1 bot

What does it save between rounds and matches?

heading change and velocity between rounds. nothing between matches

Where did you get the name?

the first thing I had were the glowing colors. And in my tests I saw him blowing up "many" victims.

Can I use your code?

currently not. most things in it is just tuning and this needs time but isn't worth a look :)

What's next for your robot?

a better ranking :) (I dont like this small red face beside his name)

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

I don't like WhiteWhales. so I need a lot of time to remove as many as possible

What other robot(s) is it based on?

it's based on SmallDevil a little bit. (seems not to be visible any more)

Comments, questions, feedback:

Usually kicks my bots' butts. --PEZ
