What's special about it?

I think it's the first MicroBot to use MultipleChoice with PatternMatching.

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

How competitive is it?

It looks like it will be very strong.

How does it move?

It uses the same MultiMode movement as Thorn.

How does it fire?

PatternMatching with MultipleChoice.

How does it dodge bullets?

It only dodges simple targeters.

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

There isn't a melee strategy.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Movement mode and the targeting data between rounds, nothing between matches.

Where did you get the name?

I'm continuing the Splinter / Thorn theme.

Can I use your code?

Sure, it's released under the terms of the RWPCL.

What's next for your robot?

Hopefully The2000Club. I still have about 25 bytes to play around with...

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

We'll see.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

The movement is directly from Thorn. The PatternMatching is based off WeekendObsession's gun.


Comments, questions, feedback:

Just letting you know, the Waylander 0.2.* used multiple choice pattern matching, it wasn't particularly succesful though (buggy I think). -- Skilgannon
