Chronicle of 2013
Here is a list of events, minor or major, that happened to Robocode/RoboWiki in 2013:
- CombatTeam is the new teamrumble king in APS and survival league.
- EnergyDome appeared as the most successful Bullet Shielder in the rumble.
- Chase fixed a bug in the robot Seraphim that had rendered it nothing more then an advanced sandbox flattener for over 6 years. It jumped over 30 ranks into the rumbles top 25.
- LiteRumble became the primary rumble server.
- Robocode 188.8.131.52 was released, including a move to Java 6.
- Robocode 184.108.40.206 beta was released, adding a new robot type, the Border Sentry.
- XanderCat entered the top 5. Along the way he proved the viability of Bullet Shielding in top bots. DrussGT added it to pull away from Diamond.
- The RoboWiki server crashed on Xmas, causing it to be down for almost two weeks. Sad pandas!
