Bot Name
What's special about it?
It's a SymbolicPatternMatching NanoBot with Stop And Go movement.
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
How competitive is it?
Quite. Top 20 nano and top 400 robot.


How does it move?
Stop And Go movement, like in my Stop And Go Tutorial article.
How does it fire?
How does it dodge bullets?
Take a look at Stop And Go Tutorial.
How does the melee strategy differ from One-on-one strategy?
It's only a one-on-one bot.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between rounds it saves lateral velocity for the Pattern Matching (and everything else, too, because static variables cost less codesize :P), between matches nothing.
