Melee competitions are your bot vs 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 1v1 counterparts. A good melee bot is usually a good 1v1 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 challange after OneOnOne due to the new variables that are added to the battle.
Stages to a melee battle
- 10 bots on field, bots in bad starting positions die right away. Hope you're not one of them.
- 6-7 bots on the field, fighting over corners and trying not to get pushed into crossfires
- 3-4 bots on field, everyone stays in their corners and snipes at each other. Try to get the other guys to target each other instead of you
