How does it move?
Movement strategy – Wave Surfing, Random Movement, etc.
How does it fire?
Targeting strategy – GuessFactor Targeting, Pattern Matching, etc.
How does it dodge bullets?
Pretty much the same as the movement section.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
Melee is a battle with many bots; one-on-one is a battle with only two bots.
How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?
Some bots target the first enemy they see; other bots attack the closest enemy; still others choose the target with the greatest energy. If your bot doesn't support melee, just omit this section.
