Background Information

What's special about it?

This "line of robots" pretty much kickstarted my Robocode journey.

How competitive is it?

Currently ranked lucky #20 in NanoRumble.


How does it move?

Uses the smallest code size from the Stop-Go Robowiki tutorial and uses the PM targeting Match Length variable as a random factor to change directions.

How does it fire?

It uses Pattern Matching.

How does it dodge bullets?

Stop and Go energy drop, switches directions randomly.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?

My very first robot (in College, 2002) was SpinBot-like, uses Max velocity for speed. When it hits walls, it just backs off 40px(?) then resumes the spinning. It used the usual Head-On targeting. It was named "ISuck." It did place second in our small tourney. From there, I created this Nano version of it.

Can I use your code?

All good!

What's next for your robot?

None. This is OG.

Does it have any White Whales?

It doesn't have any particular weaknesses, but it scores lowest against timmit.nano.TimDog 0.33.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Pattern Matching from Foilist, WeekendObsession and Yatagan.

And of course, even if I'm "late in the game" I'd still want to give a huge thank you to all the contributors on the wealth of information on both Old and Current RoboWiki.
