the chief god, the ruler of the Aesir and god of war, poetry, knowledge, and wisdom.

How does it move?

Randomised orbital movement with approach/distancing factor.

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. It uses four segments: distance, position on field, accelaration and absolute velocity.

How does it dodge bullets?

It doesn't.

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

Not capable of a melee fight.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

All Guessfactor data on the opponent.

Where did you get the name?

miniWodan, 'primus inter pares' under the gods/my bots...

Where can i get it?


Can I use your code?

Of course, the source is in the package. Not much new though...

What's next for your robot?

After some study of the possibilities, better segmentation for my gun. I am thinking about using bullet travel time instead if plain distance and change in target heading instead of the absolute value of the velocity. Or maybe add these segements...

Next, better movement: "Odin was a shape-changer, able to change his skin and form in any way he liked. He was said to travel the world disguised as an old man with a staff, one-eyed, grey-bearded and wearing a wide-brimmed hat (called Odin Gangleri ("the wanderer")). Odin sometimes traveled among mortals under aliases Vak and Valtam".

What is it based on?

Kawigi's GuessFactorTargeting/Tutorial and PEZ's implementation of waves using custom events.
Added a plugin for Kawigi's FloodGrapher.
