performs well vs. microbots and minibots, and wins among the top nanobots when it faces them, but it doesn't do very well in battles with nanobots that weren't designed for melee. The source code for DuelistNanoMelee
is available. I ask that you acknowledge any code or ideas used, and make a robot that is uniquely yours - not just a slightly modified copy of mine.
There are a lot of wall-followers among the NanoBots. It may have been those bots that gave DuelistNanoMelee such a hard time. I'm just guessing, though.
It got second place this week... maybe it was jusy unlucky the first time.
Yeah... DNM probably just got grouped with the wrong bots, at the wrong place, at the wrong time :-)
I added one movement pattern to SpareParts based on the oscillating corner movement I observed in this robot. -- Kawigi
