Background Information

What's special about it?
Almost nothing. =) It had the shortest time from conception to release of all my bots - I just whipped it up while waiting for some Diamond test beds to run, then tuned it a little.
How competitive is it?
It's at #5 in the melee MicroBot rankings. But compared to the bots it emulates (HawkOnFire, Shiz), it's not very competitive at the moment.

Strategy

How does it move?
A really simple Minimum Risk Movement. Tries to stay far from other bots, weighted by energy, tries not to be targeted, and has some randomness from its own recent locations.
How does it fire?
Head-On Targeting =)
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
It doesn't, actually.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
Fires at the closest bot.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Nothing!

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
It's named after Blitzkrieg Bat, which was my favorite Battle Beast as a kid. They're tiny little animalish warrior action figures. I loved those things!
Can I use your code?
Yes, it's released under the RWPCL.
What's next for your robot?
Not sure!
Does it have any White Whales?
Sure, HawkOnFire, Shiz, and MeleeSprout all kick its butt.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
HawkOnFire (conceptually, I never looked at HoF's code), BrokenSword, and Diamond.
