Welcome to the RambotChallenge2K6. It's an attempt at measuring ramming performance. The rules are simple.
Note that at least 15% of the damage must come from ramming, otherwise the bot is not qualified as rambot.
The Referencebots and an RoboLeague xml file can be obtained here: http://home.versatel.nl/gheijenk/robocode/things/RC_Reference.zip
Results chatting is best carried out on the /ResultsChat page.
If you're curious about how we arrived at this bot set and the rules, check out the /PreChat page for the discussion.
Anti-gravity works well against some, but others (notably GrubbmThree) will corall their opponent into a corner and pin them there. The best combination I came up with (given the tools I'd already created) was tangental oscillation (e.g. SnippetBot) with low anti-gravity fields from walls and the opponent's robot. The 'tango' movement throws off targeting and also gives rammers the slip (often) even when already collided with. -- Martin
