Bot Name
What's special about it?
My first Pattern Matcher NanoBot. It uses a home-made movement which seems to be very competitive... :)
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
How competitive is it?
Quite. Assertive 0.3 is a top 20 nano and a top 300 bot in the general RoboRumble


How does it move?
Unique Oscillator Movement with aggressive approachment.
How does it fire?
How does it dodge bullets?
It's not a bullet-dodger howsoever it seems to be.
How does the melee strategy differ from One-on-one strategy?
It's only a one-on-one bot.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between rounds it saves lateral velocity for the Pattern Matching (and everything else, too, because static variables cost less codesize :P), between matches nothing.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
I created a movement, looked at it for a while then opened a dictionary and that was the perfect name...
Can I use your code?
What's next for your robot?
Now I'm working on my first MicroBot, but I think I should do something against Head-on Targeting. :)
Does it have any White Whales?
Not really, but my everlasting testingBots are Splinter, Nanolaulectrik, AceSurf, NanoAndrew, DoctorBob, PulsarNano, etcetera...
What other robot(s) is it based on?
I examined FunkyChicken's SymbolicPatternMatching gun to learn this targeting method. In Assertive I implemented a slightly modified version of it.
