Cross porting from Java 8 seems to be excessive, if the rest of us are running Java 8. But let's see what others are running.
But why risk getting low scores when there are someone using Java6? I think anyone who participant in rumble should make the bot compatible with Java 6 until it is not officially supported by the literumble.
Maybe what we really need is a vote for moving the minimum requirement of running rumble from Java 6 to Java 8?

The problem with the Robocode community is that everyone talks making changes, but no one actually does anything.
Please don't be so harsh.
Our problem that we don't have large enough community. We can count active users in two hands. You cannot expect everyone to jump on the issues right away.
At least we can make reasonably complete bug reports and see if they can be addressed.
