What's special about it?

It is a Cannibal. It assimilates everything in its path. It also forgets it all after the battle ends.

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

How competitive is it?

It is however competitve the enemy is.

How does it move?

Like the other robot.

How does it fire?

LinearTargeting. Kind of stupid, huh? A bot with an existing database of enemy movement information, and it doesn't use PatternMatching. I'm working on it.

How does it dodge bullets?

Like the other bot. When do you get this through your skull?

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

It is 1-on-1 only. In melee, it gets very confused.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

All previously "assimilated" data is saved between rounds. Everything is (quite stupidly) lost at the end of the match.

Where did you get the name?

Haven't you ever seen any Star Trek after the Original Series? The Borg are an alien race whose method of reproduction is to assimilate other beings, making them Borg.

Can I use your code?

Why not? You can find it in the jar file.

What's next for your robot?

A pattern matcher gun using the existing algorithm.
