Background Information

Bot Name
What's special about it?
It's my first robot after a 9 year break!
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
How competitive is it?
Currently top 10 in the microrumble. Watch out! This is a very early version and it contains over 100 bytes worth of color changing code.


What is its basic strategy?
Like its little brother Caligula, Claudius focuses on beating the very exploitable bots by as large a margin as possible at the expense of its matchup against stronger bots.
How does it move?
It has three movement modes. First it tries orbiting the opponent at full speed, then reversing direction on bullet fire, and if all else fails random movement.
How does it fire?
It uses a nano-sized symbolic pattern matcher.
How does it dodge bullets?
Claudius has what i suspect is one of the better bullet-dodging schemes in the micro division. It even simulates enemy gunheat to avoid being fooled by wall collisions.
Is this robot melee-capable?
Not in the slightest.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
The only relevant information that it saves between rounds is the targeting log for its gun and which movement mode to use. It saves nothing between matches.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
Claudius was the next emperor after Caligula.
Can I use your code?
What's next for your robot?

Lots of minor tweaking. The first version was written in an afternoon and went through very little refinement. Later on, I may try and upgrade the gun since there is quite a bit of codesize to spare.

Does it have any White Whales?
It's relatively weak gun means that it does poorly against bots strong enough to hit its first two movements and force it to move randomly.
