Background Information

What's special about it?
The movement's pretty unique.
How competitive is it?
Quite - as of August 2017, #14 in RoboRumble General 1v1.


How does it move?
Wave Surfing with Dynamic Clustering. I added some pretty interesting features to it such as multiple weighting systems and rolling averages. Besides the danger calculation, it is identical to WaveSerpent's movement.
How does it fire?
The same as WaveSerpent (v1): a dynamic clustering gun with scans segmented on velocity and acceleration.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
It saves gun and surfing data between rounds, nothing between matches.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
The Hydra is an almost unkillable beast from Greek mythology.
Can I use your code?
Sure, it's released under the terms of the RWPCL.
What's next for your robot?
  • Improve its behavior against simple targeters.
  • Eventually rewrite it completely.
Does it have any White Whales?
Wave Surfers I guess...
What other robot(s) is it based on?
