Background Information

Bot Name






What's special about it?

I try to see as little as I can from other people's code, but I think:

  • That the gun uses the DC data in a very different way than most bots in the rumble.
  • The flattener is probably very different too.
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?

All versions can be downloaded from /VersionHistory.

How competitive is it?
  • Very, best version placed 9 in the General Rumble and #1 in PL (version: 1.3.7, date: 04/03/09)


How does it move?

DynamicClustering based Wave Surfing, it uses different weights and tries to see which one is better to get the cluster.

How does it fire?

DynamicClustering based GuessFactor Targeting, it has different weights in a Virtual Guns array. Pattern Matching in the Virtual Guns array.

How does it dodge bullets?

Wave Surfing

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

No [[melee] code at the moment.

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

No [[melee] code at the moment.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

All bullet synchronized snapshots are recorded across the battle in the DC trees. A log of all ticks snapshots kept for the complete battle. (probably should remove it)

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?

YersiniaPestis is the bacterium most likely to have caused the Black Death. Since this bot started as a Melee bot, I was looking for something that expressed "kill many".

Can I use your code?

I'd prefer the code is used for learning and getting ideas instead of just extracting whole pieces, but is free to use in anyway, just give appropriate credits.

What's next for your robot?
  • Fix bugs.
  • Improve the execution speed.
  • Melee strategy.
  • Surf a second wave.
Does it have any White Whales?

Is able to beat all current bots, but to beat top bots such as DrussGT, WeeklongObsession, Shadow and Dookious luck is definitely necessary.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

DrussGT made me use Simonton's tree, some of the parameters when creating the trees or clusters are from him. Other than that is mostly based on ideas written all around the wiki.
