Background Information

What's special about it?
It is a baseline robot that uses RandomGuessFactorTargeting with RandomWaveSurfing. Any machine learning method, whatever DynamicClustering, VCS, NeuralNetworks or else can be compared with RandomLearning to see the improvements.


How does it move?
WaveSurfing, but select history waves randomly.
How does it fire?
GuessFactorTargeting, but select history scans randomly.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between matches: Nothing.
Between rounds: Everything.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
It's my second bot, and it's created to help me evaluate the first bot, Prime.
Can I use your code?
Not yet ;) I will release the code shortly after I release the bot.
What's next for your robot?
Release it as soon as possible. It's worth seeing the ranking of a RandomLearning robot, as a baseline for anyone who uses state-of-the-art techniques such as GuessFactorTargeting and WaveSurfing.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
None, every bit of code is written by myself, even without reusing any code of myself. It's initially a rewrite of Prime, my first bot, but soon I found RandomGuessFactorTargeting works quite well, so I decided to release it as a separate bot, as I'm really wondering how will a random robot ranks ;)
