Background Information

What's special about it?
It is one of the least hittable of the Sample Bots. It also demonstrates an AdvancedRobot setXXX() nonblocking call (specifically, setTurnRight()).
How competitive is it?
It is the third most successful sample bot in MeleeRumble.

Strategy

How does it move?
It moves in a tight circle, by moving forward while turning.
How does it fire?
It tries to fire a 3.0-power bullet whenever it sees another robot.
How does it dodge bullets?
Its continuous circular movement dodges Head-On Targeting and Linear Targeting. However, advanced targeting systems will have no trouble hitting it, and Circular Targeting will get a 100% hitrate against it.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
No difference.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
No explicit target selection.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Nothing between rounds, nothing between matches.
