Who has put the most bots into the rumble?
As I can't see those statistics anywhere, I compiled the list by myself. I think I'll also encapsulate it into a brief Perl script, so the list could be kept up to date. As for now the people (or at least main packages) with at least 3 bots are(number of bots and name):
Congrats for resilience to the very top.
Wow, I had no idea! I also own half of 3 of those wiki bots :-p However, you're not counting bots that aren't entered in one-on-one, so you missed one of mine ;-) -- Kawigi
That's right, I'll change that tomorrow. I didn't save the regexps I used and I'm too tired now to recreate them. --lRem
Well, I suspect getting it perfect isn't practical, because you have to "just know" about some of the Robocoders and their work. Since I don't have time to waste, here's how I wasted some time:
- 18 Kawigi
- 15 PEZ
- 11.5 Iiley
- 11 GrubbmGait
- 10 David Alves
- 10 Loki
- 9.5 Rozu
- 9 Mike Zhang
- 9 Albert
- 8 Alcatraz
- 7 DrLoco
- 6 Rational Insanity
- 6 Kuuran
- 6 Simon Parker - someone who's been around longer than me should make him a page
- 5 Tobe
- 5 Timmit - someone (maybe Iiley) should make him a page - I haven't heard from him since the early days of the RobocodeLittleLeague.
- 5 Ph
- 5 Jim
- 5 Deathcon
- 4 Paul Evans
- 4 Axe
- 4 Andrew
- 4 Dummy
- 3.5 Jamougha
- 3 takeBot (?)
- 3 Ratosh
- 3 Pulsar
- 3 Miked0801
- 3 M3thos
- 3 lRem
- 3 JPrideaux
- 3 ABC
So I changed the package names to their more familiar author names (except for takeBot, whose bots all probably predate the wiki, and I don't think I ever really knew him), and added in obscurities and melee/teams that I knew of, not counting melee bots that are already counted in one-on-one, and not counting teams that are made up of 5 of some other entered bot. What I added in:
- Divided up the wiki bots - PEZ gets 2, Kawigi gets 2, Jim gets 1, GrubbmGait gets 1, David Alves, Iiley, Jamougha and Rozu each get .5, and one of them belongs to someone who's not going to be on the list anyways. Note that this is including the one melee-only wiki bot.
- The 2 radnor bots were team-written by Mike Zhang and Andrew, so +1 to each of them.
- usa.Nemo counts as .5 for David Alves and Nano (but Nano is left with 2.5 bots, so he's not on the list)
- the 3 md's weren't all the same person - md.VelociRaptor? was written by mdouet, but the other 2 are older.
- David Alves has 3 melee-only bots, Mike Zhang has 2, Ph, Jim, Kawigi and Deathcon each have 1.
- Mike Zhang has a team that I'm not sure if it's based really directly on any other bot, so does GrubbmGait, Albert, Simon Parker and Rozu.
- I'm sure there are a few more that you'd have to count if you counted everything right, but one I thought should be noted is Dummy - he has 2 1-on-1 bots, 1 melee-only bot, and a team.
You can strike my wiki bot, it is a RRGunChallenge bot and these are by default temporary (and certainly not unique). -- GrubbmGait
And I wasted my time in some other way and created nightly a (I hope) nice micromelee bot. Just have to debug it after some SLEEP... --lRem
I think Loki threatens the top-3 now, it looks like he has 19 bots active now, at least in OneOnOne. -- GrubbmGait
- i am just curious how my old bots can compete with the present state-of-the-art bots. I am currently running RR@Home like crazy (even increased the priority of the process). I will remove most on them probably next thursday after their ranking is a bit more stable. --Loki
- reduced the number to 10, including my latest bots and some of the very first. --Loki
If you're really into measuring fertility you should count all bots a coder has given birth to, not just the currently active ones. But I guess it's quite hard to get an accurate measure of that so let it be only the surviving offsprings then. I could always just release some of my slaughtered bots on the rumble again. j/k =) And I think there are some bots out there using my guns or my movements in their entirety and I should probably have .5 for those. =)-- PEZ
Aha, i'm 3th. :) -- iiley
