Additional Info

Where did you get the name?
It is the NATO-letter 'W'. As my personal nickname I use this for smaller projects and first prototypes.
staticline.whiskey.Whiskey or staticline.Whiskey - which is correct?
It started with the second one but after a major change in the whole code structure I also changed the packages. The staticline.Whiskey 0.5.x bot is deprecated.
What's next for your robot?
* Do my homework and make him competitive.
* Implement a classification-based targeting mechanism.
This is my first bot, so I used some wave surfing code from the Wave Surfing Tutorial with some little tweaks by Voidious. The code structure of the current bot is a quick'n'dirty implementation of Ray Vermette's TheArtOfWar bot. I'm very confident this will help me with my further plans. Last but not least my thanks go to this great Wiki and it's participants.
