Background Information

Bot Name
What's special about it?
My most worked on bot, stepped up with 100 places minimum each update.
How competitive is it?
Pretty good for a simple bot, its on 210 in roborumble at the moment.


How does it move?
It uses a unique but weird method, Pathfinding!
When you see it in action it looks like wave surfing or some anti grav movement,
but it will move anywhere to avoid them, even zigzag trough fire lines. (not always avoiding them, but hey its just an alpha.)
How does it fire?
It uses Pattern matching for now, busy on improving the gun.
Movement comes first for now.
How does it dodge bullets?
See "How does it move?"
How does the melee strategy differ from One-on-one strategy?
There is no melee strategy.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
It's a one-on-one bot.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Not much, only the pattern from the gun between rounds.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
I went looking for a weird name, Chupacabra was born.
It means something like goat-sucker, lol?!
Can I use your code?
Not yet, as this is very expirimental at the moment.
but when i'm done with the path finding to avoid bullets i will
release it open source.
What's next for your robot?
Improving the algoritm and the gun.
Does it have any White Whales?
Which he has, will be solved *evil laugh*
I use problem bots to improve it.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
Not really based on a bot, only the pattern matching gun is quite typical.
