Machete/Version History






Machete: n. : A large heavy knife, used primarily in South America, as a weapon or for cutting vegetatation.

Inspired by the success of Caligula and Sabreur, I decided to give the dodge+ramming technique a try.

What's special about it?

It uses variable length stop-and-go coupled with ramming, in a nanobot.

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

Find the latest version on the rumble participants list.

How competitive is it?

We'll see.

How does it move?

Variable distance Stop And Go, which switches to Ramming if it loses in the first 5 rounds.

How does it fire?

Plain old linear targeting, although I'm considering using an averaged-linear to kill the other stop-and-go bots.

How does it dodge bullets?

It does Stop And Go to fool HOT, LT and CT. If it loses in the first 5 rounds it turns into a rambot so that it can't be beaten too badly.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Between rounds it saves whether to use StopAndGo, between matches nothing.

Where did you get the name?

I honestly can't remember.

Can I use your code?

Under the following terms:

  • Your bot MUST be OpenSource.
  • You give credit in your code, and in any documentation of your bot.
  • Pleeaase don't just take my bot, tweak it and release it under another name. Rather tell me about the changes, and I'll give you credit. =)

What's next for your robot?

possibly averaged linear targeting for those pesky stop-and-go bots. We'll see.

Does it have any White Whales?

Bots that shoot 3 power the whole time, while pattern matching, and doing stop-and-go movement.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Nothing really
