Version History - MiniFreya
Freya was the goddess of love, marriage, and fertility. As a battle-goddess, Freya rides a boar called Hildisvín the Battle-Swine. She loved battle, and would laugh at it whilst in bed with her lover, Odin. As a deity of the dead, Freya was entitled to half the warriors killed in battle, the other half going to Odin.

Background Information

What's special about it?
Freya is a classic, well-rounded bot.
How competitive is it?
Top 20 in Melee, around 150 in 1v1.


How does it move?
Uses a variation of Minimum Risk Movement, mainly based on the descriptions of Melee Strategy/Understanding Coriantumr and Melee Strategy/Understanding HawkOnFire.
How does it fire?
Freya uses a version of MiniWodan's implementation of a GF gun, adapted for melee.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
The melee strategy currently does not differ from one-on-one strategy. As its movement is tweaked for melee, its movement in one-on-one battles is only average.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
All GuessFactor data on the opponent. No data saving between matches.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
All my bots are named after the Norse gods and as I think melee battles call for a bit more subtlety, i choose the name of a female (warrior) god. Hopefully this helps ;) See the Wikipedia entry for a complete description of this interesting goddess.
Can I use your code?
No, Freya is closed source.
What's next for your robot?
Nothing for the moment.
