Congratulations on first place!

After more than 10 years DrussGT has been dethroned as the top 1-vs-1 bot! I guess you could have done this any time over the last year by combining ScalarR and ShieldR, but breaking 92 APS is an amazing score and really shows how far bots have come since DrussGT!

Thanks for noticing! I think BeepBoop has more potential, since it’s doing better against a lot of tough bots, and losing some APS against some weak bots (some times BeepBoop knows the shot but still get hit, weird).

Anyway I was looking for some real improvements before making the combination, and Bullet Shadow/Correct does work pretty well! I would say without DrussGT/Understanding DrussGT and BeepBoop/Understanding BeepBoop I would never imagined that it’s possible to break 92 APS.

I’m also planning some complete code cleaning & sharing even more details (most have been forgotten given the age). And possibly write some tutorials as well!

That would be fantastic, I'm looking forward to hearing more about it! I'll have to look into BeepBoop losing some points to weak bots.

Congratulations!!! More than 1% of APS above the previos king. This is truly impressive.

Also it is good to see that Robowiki is bubbling (by our standards) with activities.

Congrats! Nicely done!

I guess there was a bug in your initial bullet shielding, it's now up to 93 APS! Wow, bullet shielding helps a lot.

Amazing work. And with a substantial lead. Extremely impressive, big congrats!

Thanks everyone! I'm also surprised how I can do when a shield is combined. Anyway there won't be ScalarR without so many detailed articles on this wiki, and Skilgannon sharing a lot of details. I've already wrote some basics about ScalarR in ScalarR/Some Ideas, and planning more after some full review of the code base!

Oh wow, huge congratulations!

I guess I kind of deserve this for not really updating DrussGT since 2013, yeah? ;-)

I've been putting all of my open source energy into my opencalibration project, but I'd love to get back to DrussGT again. I have some big ideas, and no time...

Thanks. Newer updated bots always have some advantages of knowing the newest rumble distribution, and I'm really looking forward to an updated DrussGT, which has always been the bot to beat ;)
