Background Information

Bot Name

Mobile Gunman Alpha Aurora (or just AlphaAurora is you prefer).


Draven Stedman, aka the Aurora Company.



What's special about it?

It's my first, and the first of a fleet. Also, it's a NanoBot for a debut.

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?

The thing is, you can't. I put my robot under closed source, and I only allow RoboRumble to use it. Maybe if the demand is big I'll post a link. But for now, no.

How competitive is it?

Not even remotely...yet. It lost to a MyFirstRobot in a 5 round match. It's still in Alpha, though, so it's not gonna be that bad when I reprogram.


How does it move?

I don't really know if there's a name for it, it just uses ahead() and back(). (I suppose that this and my firing would be titled "Newb Tactics". Haha.)

How does it fire?

Again, not sure if there's a name for it, but I use turnGunRight(360) and turnGunLeft(360) as a placeholder for when I can get it better.

How does it dodge bullets?

It doesn't a lot of the time, it just sort of moves. When it does get hit, I have heavy movement code set in.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Absolutely nothing, though I may code something in later.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?

I am a huge fan of the Gundam series, so I used that naming order; also, my IRC name is Aurora, so I just called the fleet the Aurora-1 fleet (so-called as it's not going to be the only one).

Can I use your code?

No, at least not right now. I closed the source for now, but maybe if I want to, I'll open it up.

What's next for your robot?

Well, to go into Beta, I have a requirement that my robot be able to beat all the SampleBots excluding Walls in 42-round matchups. To go to v1.0, it has to be able to beat Walls and the bottom 20 NanoBots in 42-round matchups. To go to v2.0, it must be able to beat Caligula in a 42-round matchup.

Does it have any White Whales?

No, not yet anyway.

What other robots is it based on?

MyFirstRobot, sorta. The original Beta Aurora, in a way because of its erratic movement.
