Background Information

What's special about it?
It is the first robot that uses this type of gun as describe below, and it is the first Wave Surfer ever.
Also, it is my first ever competitive bot redone with "modern" technologies.


How does it move?
Shadow is the first robot that features Wave Surfing.
How does it fire?
This gun is firstly describe as Tron's Gun. I call it a "forward pattern matcher".
But later this gun is named Dynamic Clustering Play-It Forward gun.
How does it dodge bullets?
By surfing enemy's waves.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
It uses a Minimum Risk Movement
v3.84: with the HOT-avoidance system
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee ?
It doesn't, instead it uses the strategy describe at Shadow/Melee Gun.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between matches: Nothing.
Between rounds: Everything.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
From it's colors. I made it dark, like a shadow. ;)
Can I use your code?
It is not open source. I'm a very sloppy coder (when I can ;)).
What's next for your robot?
Movement optimising, it still hits the walls too often. After that I'll work on the gun.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
Tron 2.02
