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?
, it's super-competitive, to the point of winning 100% of the time. It beats TrackFire
about 15% of the time, it beats Tracker
about 40% of the time, it beats SpinBot
about 20% of the time, It beats RamFire
about 10% of the time. It can't beat Target
, 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.
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?
Hmmm... Not really, I'd call sample.Tracker
a problem bot, though.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
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.
