Current Version 1.1
Code License RWLPCL

Bot Name
What's special about it?
This bot is the big brother of Pugio. It uses my invention called Adaptive Oscillator Movement. I try my new developments of it in this bot.
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
See infobox.
How competitive is it?
Quite good. It's the 14th in the microrumble and 147th in the main roborumble. It scores 46% against Toorkild which is an unbelievable fact for me. ;)


How does it move?
Statistical Adaptive Oscillator Movement.
How does it fire?
GuessFactor Targeting based on Aristocles's version but with different segmentations and more codesize-friendly weight. :)
How does it dodge bullets?
The sin-based oscillator movement sets its frequency according to the actual stats.
How does the melee strategy differ from One-on-one strategy?
The melee strategy is to avoid melee battles. ;)
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between rounds it saves the visit count stats for GF (and everything else, too, because static variables cost less codesize :P), between matches nothing.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
Gladius is the bigger brother of Pugio. Pugio is the Roman dagger, Gladius is the Roman sword. Quite straightforward, isn't it?
Can I use your code?
What's next for your robot?
* GuessFactor targeting
* Optimize segmentation
* Optimize distancing
* Optimize firepower management
* Improve movement in general(e.g. add segmentation or smooth stat bins)
* Give his colors back :D
Does it have any White Whales?
Top 13 and all the bots they perform better against. :D
What other robot(s) is it based on?
Aristocles's GF gun with different segmentations and much lower codesize.
Pugio's movement in micro-design. ;)
