What's special about it?

Um...it's pretty good for a very first robot? >.>;;;

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

How competitive is it?

It beats the sample bots (I think) and that's IT.

How does it move?

It rotates around the enemy, staying perpendicular, and moves around. I got the code from someone else, and I have no clue if he wrote it himself or took the code from elsewhere. If it's yours, tell me and I'll credit you or think of something else.

How does it fire?

Heads-on, with a backup linear gun just for all the wallhuggers in my class.

How does it dodge bullets?

A REAL man doesn't need to dodge bullets!

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

In melee, it gets confused and dies fast, though it's not like certain bots that freeze in melee.

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

Um...nearest target? I dunno.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Zip. Nada. Null.

Where did you get the name?

I was going through a Hardmode run of Valkyrie Profile in preparation for Silmeria, and the name stuck.

Can I use your code?

If you want to, yeah, sure, though there's a LOT better places to learn from for newbies and experts wouldn't want this bot.

What's next for your robot?

I dunno. My next bot is probably going to be a completely new one.

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Spinbot. >.>;;; *SHOT* Oh, Kinsen's unspellable thingy that I'll link to someday, but fat chance it's ever going to beat that without sufficient overhaul to cause it to get a new name.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

None, really.

Comments, questions, feedback:

I remember the day I finally nailed down circular targeting. Watching your bot get a 100% hit rate on SpinBot is an early thrill. -- Martin
