Background Information

What's special about it?
It is currently the second-best 1v1 rambot (behind GrubbmThree), as ranked in RoboRumble.
It has its own bot challenge.
How competitive is it?
RoboRumble ‒ APS: 57% (446th), PL: 697-456 (425th), Survival: 54.31%
For challenge results, see Rambot Challenge 2K6/Results and MaxRisk Challenge#Results.


How does it move?
It generates points in a circle around it and evaluates them on moving towards the other robot's real position depending on distance (the closer to the enemy the more it goes by the predicted position), moving towards the other robot's predicted position (where it shoots), and the center (so it corners the enemy). It then moves towards the position it thinks is the best.
How does it fire?
It uses iterative Circular Targeting.
How does it dodge bullets?
By running into them :).
How does the melee strategy differ from One-on-one strategy?
A ram bot in melee?
What does it save between rounds and matches?
