Comments, questions, feedback:

Outstanding. How good is it? Is the gf gun accurate? Is this the one that's going to be up with the other big ExtendsRobots with GF guns? -- Kawigi

Sorry about not running the ERC for any of your other recent updates, I've been busy/lazy. I'll do it for this one though. -- Alcatraz

Well, it can kill all of the sample bots, but because of its crappy movement, it doesn't do too well against bots like UnderDark3, Girl, & Krazy --UnderDark

Yes...it got shut out in the finals by Girl. Though it did make the finals, so good work. -- Alcatraz

Thank you, It took me about 7 hours of coding to get working --UnderDark

Also, I wanted UnderDark3 AND UnderDark4 in the comp, as they are different bots, unless there is a 1 entry/person rule --UnderDark

Ah, ok, I will do that in the next one. -- Alcatraz

Which brings up the question - what are you going to do with 9 non-sample entries? Are we going to 4 rounds? Where are we getting the rest of the bots to get up to 16? Maybe adding that UltraRazor? or whatever and bugging Brainfade for some version of Ralph? -- Kawigi

Well, I could either get rid of the worst remaining bot, which is NanoKing?, or pick some bots from the repository. There are plenty of pre-wiki offerings. I just don't know which ones would be worth selecting. But yeah, I think at this point it'd be best to go up to 16 bots. That's about the size where elimination tournaments really get fun. -- Alcatraz

Youc could also throw the Extends Robot sample bots to take up some space --UnderDark

If there are that many Extends Robot on the repository, why not going for 32 bots :-D --GrubbmGait

Looking closely, we could just about do that. Apparently, at some point in time, Mat had a Robots-only tournament, and a good collection of those bots are on the Repository (maybe made for a different version of robocode, but I haven't seen any compatibility issues). We're talking about Robots written by the people who wrote the classics, like Rapture, SquigBot and JazzBot?. I downloaded a collection of bots that looked promising and I'm running an RLL-style 1-on-1 league to see who we might fill the space with. Also, we could put in PEZ's HaikuPoet. and I'll get back to you... -- Kawigi
