Targeting GuessFactor Targeting
Movement Minimum risk
Current Version 1.1

Background Information

What's special about it?
Nothing really. Just my first twin duel bot.


How does it move?
It uses minimum risk movement from Rednaxela's MiniSurreptitious modified for wall avoidance.
How do they fire?
The twins use GuessFactor Targeting from PEZ's Aristocles.
How does it dodge bullets?
If minimum risk movement is counted as dodging, that is it. Otherwise none.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid?
No selection.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
It does not save anything intentionally.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
I was thinking of something intimidating, when birds of prey came to my mind. I chose Eagle, because hawk was already taken(HawkOnFire). Eagle sounded second coolest, so I chose that.
Can I use your code?
Sure it's open source.
Does it have any White Whales?
No bots yet... but I think the 'firing pitfall' is really annoying. I probably could've improved 10-20% on GeminiTeam without it. I also found that small bullet powers are less accurate.
What's next for your robot?
Probably some way to prevent a firing pitfall on stationary targets.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
I took the gun from Aristocles and modified the movement from MiniSurreptitious.
August 20, 2013: Since robocode repository is down, and all my bots were created recently, I am unable to release them.
September 17, 2013: seems fine now. Eagle 1.0.6 is available on Robocode Repository, but not the twinduel version.
