GrubbmGrunt is a derivate of GrubbmTwo with the focus on team-capabilities for GrubbmGroup.

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

mini.GrubbmGrunt: http://www.robocoderepository.com/BotDetail.jsp?id=2480

How competitive is it?

Anonymously just above 1600.

How does it move?

Oscillator movement with some wall-avoidance.

How does it fire?

Linear / circular targeting.

How does it dodge bullets?


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

No melee strategy. Its team strategy however is remotely controlled by the teamleader.

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

First one it sees, until someone closer gets in the way.

What does it save between rounds and matches?


Where did you get the name?

I just love the sound of 'GR'. A Grunt (WarCraft?) can hit you hard, but is not very intelligent.

Can I use your code?

It's in the jar.

What's next for your robot?

Optimizing the teamstrategy.

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Only as a team.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

GrubbmTwo for movement, GrubbmOne for targetting, myl.Troodon for team-communication.

Comments, questions, feedback:

Conversation at GrubbmHouse?:

Grunt: Son, I have to talk to you.
Gruwel: Yes, father?
Grunt: I have tought you everything I know and you also have learned some nice tricks from your mother, so I feel it is time you have to stand on your own feet without support from your parents.
Gruwel: But father . . .
Grunt: No, I have made my decision and I will stick to it. I retire from the rumble and I will start farming and grow some groente (vegetables) on the countryside. Only if challenged as a team, I will defend my position together with your mother.
Gruwel: Will mother retire also ?
Grunt: Your mother is the only HOT-bot of our clan, so she will continue to defend our colours. She will not study any new techniques or tricks however, so we still have the weekends together. Our door is always open for you, but I have trust in your strenght and cleverness, so I don't expect you to need our help anymore. Fight with honour.
Gruwel: I will defend our colours and I will not disappoint the clan.

End of conversation. -- GrubbmGait
