Horizon is my first released bot to use Wave Surfing and GuessFactor Targeting, and my first bot to make it in the top 100 75 50 25. It uses a straightforward Dynamic Clustering algorithm in both the movement and the targeting. Originally, this bot had an additional Minimum Risk Movement implementation, but I dropped all of the melee features after only a couple versions.

What's next

  • Beats me...


The original code was from BasicSurfer and GFTargetingBot, but I have borrowed innumerable code snippets from many authors since then. Of course, credit needs to go to ABC for Wave Surfing and Dynamic Clustering and Paul Evans for GuessFactor Targeting.
