Gruwel is the lovechild of a GrubbmOgre and four GrubbmGrunts. It has the muscles of his fathers and the broad view of its mother, making it well suited for melee and reasonable in one-on-one. Alas, any child of close relatives has a bigger chance on DNA-defects. In this case Gruwel is lacking any communicative and contactual skills, making it completely unfit for teamwork. Despite its loving parents it is a lonely child.

In one-on-one anonymously above 1700, in mini it is a top-20 bot with a rating above 1800. In melee it is in the subtop, in mini-melee it has a solid top-10 position.
Oscillator movement with some wall-avoidance and a small radar-related twitch, but first it tries to dodge simple targetters.
Iterative circular gun with bulletpower adjustment for 'wallshots'.
Specific dodging movement (slowspeed with turboboost) which is quite effective against HeadOnTargeting, LinearTargeting and CircularTargeting. If it gets killed in the first 5 rounds, it returns to its native (melee) oscillator movement.
No dodging movement in melee.
Closest with a small preference for current target and for weak prey.
Between rounds only if it has to use dodging movement. Between matches nothing.
Gruwel can be translated as horror or detesting, and ofcourse it begins with 'GR'.
It's in the jar, under the RWPCL.
Probably nothing, this child wants to be left alone.
I just added the gunnery-improvements of GrubbmGrbRRGC from 1.0.0 to 1.0.6 at once to GrubbmGrb. Most of the improvement is just a (rolling) averaged velocity CT-gun. I hoped for a rating of 1800, but nevertheless this rating will probably make me the king of FastTargeting :-D
Check the PL-ranking by the way, then you'll see that GrubbmGrb is not that good, but just very efficient against (other) simple targetters. --GrubbmGait
With a value of 261.6 Gruwel may hold the record on the Specialization Index!!! (i haven't checked all bots though...). And it's one strong alround mini! --Loki
