Hmm, the recent Griezel confirms the hunches I've when developing with [[MiniSurreptitious]] (which [[Glacier]]'s minrisk factors are loosely based on). When watching battles, I noticed what while MiniSurreptitious ended up in the centerfield it never seemed to take many hits, at least not significantly diferent than any other time. Thus I never used a centerfield fear myself. I think it's because so many other bots end up around the edges/coners quickly, that makes the center less dangerous than traditional wisdom advised. --[[User:Rednaxela|Rednaxela]] 00:38, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

: I had similar conclusions myself, with no real testing though. I think perpendicularity and keeping distance makes it relatively safe to be near the center (not for long though) after 3 or 4 bots die the center becomes extremely dangerous I think. And when there are only 5 bots in the field is safer to ram Shadow(which is pretty dangerous) than staying in the center and be targeted by all 4 bots. --[[User:Zyx|zyx]] 00:43, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

0.2

Wow, 3rd place and probably a tweak or two away from the #2 spot - congrats! Looking at the survival score vs Coriantumr, maybe you could gain some points with more aggressive bullet power selection? That's generally my conclusion if I'm outranked by a bot with lower survival. Good luck chasing the MiniMelee throne. =) --Voidious 19:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, curse those minibattles as they pushed me down to third place. This update was ment as a warm-up before I started with a new meleebot inspired by Portia and Diamond, but I think I'll do an update of the megaversion first to (try to) lift it into the top-10. The gap doesn't seem so big anymore after the ...Hawk experiments. --GrubbmGait 21:17, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

No need for tweaks to get to #2, due to the activity in megamelee it passed Coriantumr and is breathing Griezel 0.4 in the neck (until I update that one) --GrubbmGait 23:15, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Fear of the Centerfield

Hmm, the recent Griezel confirms the hunches I've when developing with MiniSurreptitious (which Glacier's minrisk factors are loosely based on). When watching battles, I noticed what while MiniSurreptitious ended up in the centerfield it never seemed to take many hits, at least not significantly diferent than any other time. Thus I never used a centerfield fear myself. I think it's because so many other bots end up around the edges/coners quickly, that makes the center less dangerous than traditional wisdom advised. --Rednaxela 00:38, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

I had similar conclusions myself, with no real testing though. I think perpendicularity and keeping distance makes it relatively safe to be near the center (not for long though) after 3 or 4 bots die the center becomes extremely dangerous I think. And when there are only 5 bots in the field is safer to ram Shadow(which is pretty dangerous) than staying in the center and be targeted by all 4 bots. --zyx 00:43, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
