Another bug fix, another 15 places gained ...

True, looking at the stats, Agent Smith gets 100 damage taken vs HoF over 35 rounds and Diamond takes around 30 damage over 35 rounds. So its not exactly a massive amount of damage taken but I guess its 3x more hehe! But its not a bug in my wave surfing as I am not doing traditional wave surfing, its a form of minimum risk movement. I'm sure I can improve it but I think I would increase the score in the rumble more by performing a lot better against the top 50% bots rather than trying to increase the score vs HOT bots by 1%.

Got a question though, do bullets that hit after the opponent is dead count towards damage taken? My bot stops as soon as the opponent is dead and sometimes takes hits from bullets in flight before the round ends. Didn't know if the robocode scoring ignored these hits or not? That might be the difference between our scores!

In any case, HOT is 100% predictable and so is your own movement, so you should never get hit by HOT, really. I think it's fair to call it a bug if you do. Fixing those bugs should improve your score vs everyone else too.

And yes, those bullets count - keep dodging until the end!
