I played with the idea of ramming with XanderCat whenever facing an opponent that was beating it badly. The idea was (1) it would result in a better score (2) it would be funny as hell. Unfortunately, I found in testing that, when facing a strong opponent, I usually ended up dying before reaching the opponent. Using surfing to get in close first actually crossed my mind, so reading about WaveRammer now was interesting to me. I never tried that approach though. Personally, I wish Robocode provided a larger advatage to being the rammer vs the rammee to make ramming a more attractive option. -- Skotty 17:26, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
