Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Removed: 84d83
I think mue might want to screw the guy that decompiled his code and stuck it on rapidshare

Bot Name





What's special about it?

It raises the bar in the RoboRumble by 10+ points, with a rating of 2092. (Note that Ascendant 1.2.6 is about 2076, but isn't present for this shot.)

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


How competitive is it?

It's the best!

How does it move and dodge bullets?

WaveSurfing, from Dookious 0.98.

How does it fire?

GuessFactorTargeting / VirtualGuns, from Ascendant 1.2.6.

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

It's a 1v1 bot...

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

It doesn't.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Everything between rounds, nothing between matches.

Where did you get the name?

Umm, [Count Dooku] "ascended" to become the Sith Lord, Darth Tyranus.

Can I use your code?

The movement code is OpenSource, but the gun isn't.

What's next for your robot?

Being removed from the rumble. =)

Does it have any WhiteWhales?


What other robot(s) is it based on?

Dookious and Ascendant.

Comments, questions, feedback:

I might as well make a page for it... A cross between Dookious (movement) and Ascendant (gun). Version 1.0 is Dookious 0.98's movement, Ascendant 1.2.6's gun. I'll make a proper page tomorrow... -- Voidious

I'm both excited and extremely humbled by the results so far. After 100 pairings, it's about 2/3 of a % point per opponent above Dookious 0.98, and almost a whole % point above Ascendant 1.2.6. (Those two bots are about .25% apart on average score per opponent.) This result was very nice to see, and I should probably go to bed before they're matched up again...

Fighting battle 3 ... wiki.Tyranius 1.0,abc.Shadow 3.66d
RESULT = wiki.Tyranius 1.0 wins 3035 to 1915

=) -- Voidious

Only 2.2 points away from the 2100-barrier! Now Voidious and Mue know where to search for some extra points. You'd better call this bot Tyranius-Rex as it eats all others bots alive. -- GrubbmGait

Actually it still has two losses. =) But hey, 2094 is nothing short of amazing! Congrats to v for creating a super-awesome movement. Some of us *cough* already knew that Mue had a gun that redefines the word awesomeness. This is all very inspiring. 2094. I would never have guess a score that high! Yay! -- PEZ

Impressive! I also knew Mue's gun was awsome, but I thought Voidious' one was much closer than it aparently is... This could be a case of gun and movement complementing each other, but over 10 points above Dookius? Much higher than I expected. -- ABC

Wow, it was definitely a good idea to try that cross, so thanks @Voidious for trying. This probably means im about 15 points behind in movement. Thats far more than i'd have guessed, i always thought that Ascendant's movement is pretty good with respect to the rumble population. I'm really tempted to take a look and maybe run some tests with Dookious' movement.... And like ABC i expected Dookious' targeting to be much closer to Ascendant's. Its a little frightening that Dookious as the #1 bot can still collect about 10 rating points just by some gun tweaking. --mue

I'm also quite surprised (and excited!) by the rating. Recently, I was starting to think that 2090 and 2100 are "possible" as ratings, just considering that RaikoMX was 2060+ once and is now 2030... And there it is! I knew Ascendant's gun was awesome, but I didn't think it would make such a difference with our movements. Maybe I'll shelve my recent experiments in the MovementLaboratory and work on my gun a bit =) -- Voidious

Oh, and "10 rating points just by some gun tweaking" might be a stretch =) Finding 10 points in my gun will require me to put my ThinkingCap? on, for sure. But I certainly look forward to getting to work on it after seeing this result... -- Voidious

You can remove Tyranius from the rumble whenever you please, mue, I just wanted to leave it up there long enough to get closer to 1200 battles (I've seen 3 point diffs after 1000, although rarely), and see the PremierLeague rankings get updated. Thanks for giving the OK on this beast, it's been quite a learning experience =) -- Voidious

Ok, i removed it. I'm curious what you'll come up with for your targeting. And i figure that such a ThinkingCap? might be useful, i probably should get one for myself too ;-) --mue
