Should know what it is by the name, a JustForFun sort of bot to answer a question that was (probably not answered appropriately) on the RobocodeRepository.

What's special about it?

It gets over a 90% hitrate against Walls and never loses to it.

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


How competitive is it?

Against sample.Walls, it's super-competitive, to the point of winning 100% of the time. It beats TrackFire and SittingDuck about 15% of the time, it beats Tracker about 40% of the time, it beats SpinBot and Corners about 20% of the time, It beats RamFire and MyFirstRobot about 10% of the time. It can't beat Target or Fire, and it can beat Crazy often enough to win battles.

How does it move?

Funny question. It doesn't. It sits in the same place that it started the whole time.

How does it fire?

It assumes its opponent is Walls and projects his movement for a firing angle.

How does it dodge bullets?

Sitting in one place is only dodging bullets if you're up against WallsKiller.

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

I don't know, it would probably turn its gun way too much in Melee.

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

Doesn't have code for that.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Nada. Well, hit-rate information gets stored between rounds.

Where did you get the name?

It kills Walls, thus it is WallsKiller.

Can I use your code?

Not that it's useful, but feel free...

What's next for your robot?


Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Hmmm... Not really, I'd call sample.Tracker a problem bot, though.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

SittingDuck maybe?

Comments, questions, feedback:

Ha ha..., I will use your gun in my VG array... -- Nat

Hehe, I made another WallsKiller, I didn't know you have done one. This is mine: http://www.ta-mir.co.il/AntiWalls.zip
