What's special about it?

It is a MicroBot with a form of MinimumRiskMovement, but it's a non-melee bot. In fact, it's a RamBot!

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

How competitive is it?

It is currently the highest rated rammer in both the rumble and the RambotChallenge2K6.

How does it move?

It generates points in a circle around it and evaluates them on moving towards the other robot's real position depending on distance (the closer to the enemy the more it goes by the predicted position), moving towards the other robot's predicted position (where it shoots), and the center (so it corners the enemy). It then moves towards the position it thinks is the best.

How does it fire?

It uses iterative CircularTargeting.

How does it dodge bullets?

By running into them :).

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

A ram bot in melee?

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Nothing.

Where did you get the name?

It goes anywhere but the least risky position.

Can I use your code?

Sure, if you give credit.

What's next for your robot?

Staying the best rambot.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Parts of it are similar to GrubbmThree.

Comments, questions, feedback:

Nice job on this thing. It really rocked Dookious (-40 PBI!), and I will be re-examining my anti-rammer stuff because of MaxRisk. (It's less of a priority since you remove it from the Rumble, though. =) ) -- Voidious

Why should you remove it? You use a slightly different CircularTargeting and a completely different movement, so it is unique enough to exist on its own. The behaviour seems the same as GrubbmThree, but what else do you expect from a rambot. -- GrubbmGait

Good point... Better look at your anti-ramming code again Voidious, MaxRisk is coming back to the rumble :). -- Kev

Hehe, it's already there in 0.79 ;) I did mess up on the anti-rammer wall stick length (made it same as normal, gah), but he should win, at least. -- Voidious

Oh well. Rammers aren't really that competitive, but they're a lot of fun. And not many robots can get 47% vs. Shadow :). -- Kev

Whoooh, I don't know what you did, but I never expected a rambot to rate 30 points above NanoDeath. Congratulations, you will be the King of Ram for the next few months. -- GrubbmGait
