micro/nano melee rumble

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I've never found a sure-fire way to know how a melee bot will do before it is released; I think there's a certain degree of randomness to melee scores as each individual battle has its own unique combination of bots that affects score outcome differently. That said, in order to determine if my robots are fit for the rumble I usually do basically what you do(long battles against 9 other bots that have been randomly selected from the different melee fields) except that instead of worrying about percentages I just check and see how it does in comparison to the bots I want it to beat. For example, I released Capulet when I noticed it was consistently beating other good micro's such as HawkOnFire and Shiz when they were paired together. I think being able to consistently bots that are good is an indicator that a bot will be good, as PL score almost always tends to exactly follow APS scores in melee fields.--CrazyBassoonist 02:58, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
