Why doesn't Tron use Diagonal Movement instead of Orthogonal Movement when doing so will multiply speed by the square root of 2
It wouldn't speed Tron up. Robocode BattleField is not a Manhattan Space. It is not like in chess.
Actually it would slow him down because wall smoothing would become harder. That's why Trons uses Orthogonal Movement.
Sorry, Tron couldn't do a Diagonal Movement in a Manhattan space. It should be a Chebyshev Space.
