Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
Scalar replacement, when I was reading Escape analysis.
Can I use your code?
Not yet ;)
What's next for your robot?
Don't assume anything about the opponent. Rather, always try to do the best I can do.
  • Tune against Pattern Matchers
  • Tune flattener
What other robot(s) is it based on?
It inherits ShieldBot's structure while using the gun and movement (actually, only the trees) from SimpleBot. It, however, evolved a lot since then.
Although no code directly, its evolvement is inspired by a lot of bots, including DrussGT, Diamond, Tomcat, Nene and more on this wiki.
Credits give to
  • Skilgannon, for his DrussGT gun, which influenced me a lot, and for his wise advice to me.
  • Voidious, for his Diamond gun, which is extremely strong, pushing me to work on movement more and more. Some gun attributes are also inspired by Diamond.
  • Jdev, for his Tomcat movement, which is pretty unique, and its data analysis inspired me a lot as well.
  • Chase, for his Nene, which told me that a flattener or an Anti-Surfer Gun is not essential. Its movement (especially danger function) inspired me a lot as well.
  • Jamougha, for his RaikoMicro, strong GuessFactor Gun with strong Random Movement, which is my favorite bot to test with ;).
