has won the Minibot challenge 3 times in the micro melee category. It is being actively maintained. Expect a new version to come out for every Minibot Challenge, currently once every two weeks. The source code for DuelistMicroMelee
is available. I ask that you acknowledge any code or ideas used, and make a robot that is uniquely yours - not just a slightly modified copy of mine.
Perhaps you should allow some more time for the eternal-rumble-melee-rankings to stabilize a bit before posting these numbers. ;-) --Dummy
Good point - Sparrow has passed up DuelistMicroMelee and is now leading by quite a bit. :-P --David Alves
In rank, perhaps, but if you take a closer look at the ratings, #6 - #11 are quite close! --Dummy
How does it move?
More than 1 other bot on the field:
If it's near a corner, it moves back and forth in that corner. If it's not, it uses AntiGravity
1 other bot on the field:
It tries to stay perpendicular to the enemy.
How does it fire?
Directly at the current target.
It doesn't. None of my bots do. They use the same movement vs. SittingDuck as they do vs SandboxDT.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
The movement is the only difference, as described above.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee ?
It attacks the closest target.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Where did you get the name?
Duelist (My first good bot) + Micro (Because it's a MicroBot) + Melee (Because it's designed for melee)
Can I use your code?
You sure can. Take a look and use whatever you like. Please give me credit if you use any of my code. Also, make a robot that is uniquely yours - not just a slightly modified copy of mine.
What's next for your robot?
I want it to stop losing to Troodon in the MinibotChallenge?. :-P
What other robot(s) is it based on?
