Jormungand

the giant World Snake. He was a child of Loki and the giant Angurboda, and the brother of Fenrir and Hel.

How does it move?

See Fenrir.

How does it fire?

My first implementation of a simple GuessFactor gun. This implementation is based on Kawigi's GuessFactorTargeting/Tutorial and PEZ's implementation of waves using custom events.

How does it dodge bullets?

See Fenrir.

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

See Fenrir.

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

See Fenrir.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

See Fenrir.

Where did you get the name?

Fenrir not only had a sister Hel, but also a brother... Meet Jormungand!

Where can i get it?

Can I use your code?

Of course, the source is in the package. But it's messy and buggy...

What's next for your robot?

After some study of the possibilities, better segmentation for my gun.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Fenrir and miniWodan.


Comments :

At first I didn't recognize the name. I have always called it Midgårdsormen (striaght translation would be "The Midgard Snake"). I like that I keep learning about non-robocode stuff on this wiki too. -- PEZ

Simply porting the GF-gun from miniWodan did not work: none of the segments are updated and i eneded up with a GF-gun that always shoots head-on... Well, it's rating is 1681.85, beating mini.Fenrir with the PM-gun. Maybe i shouldn't complain --Loki

At least you have recognized the bug. The scary thing with head-on bugs is that head-on often is such an effective targeting strategy... PEZ
