Melee competitions are your bot versus at least 2 other bots (and usually 9 others for a total of 10 bots.) These bots need to manage radar, energy consumption, and field location much more carefully than their 1-vs-1 counterparts. A good melee bot is usually a good 1-vs-1 bot, but the converse is not necessarily true. Field sizes for these battle are almost always larger than the default and usually are around 1000x1000 - though larger fields can make interesting battles when other bots are so far apart that they can't see each other. These bots are a good challenge after 1-vs-1 due to the new variables that are added to the battle.
