apc.Caan 1.0

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I am not sure that we can put this bot to a strong category. I looked at a few battles with it. It has worse hit rate than HawkOnFire with its head on targeting. Also, its motion does not look strong as well. However, it might perform well against several bots if its gun somehow tuned to hit them, than KNNPBI would be abnormal.

Yes, it is a mediocre bot. When I put it in a battle with some random bots, it usually ends up somewhere in the middle. But in the rumble Caan has 15.22 APS, which makes him the third worst bot in total, just before SittingDuck and WasteOfAmmo. This can't be right.

Furthermore, if you order Caan's scores by number of battles (like this), you see that those high KNNPBI scores only happen with new bots with less than 50 battles.

This means that in a lot of old battles Caan was probably disabled and didn't move at all like a sitting duck, whereas in new battles it performs normally.

I see now.

While ago back, when java switched from version 6 to 7, this bot was probably compiled with java 7, and whoever ran battles (very likely me, since I was mainly the only rumbles runner for a couple of years) probably used 6. In this case, such bot was disabled.

We about to experience it again with java switching from 7 to 8.

Maybe Skilgannon can somehow check not only the rumble client version but also the java's jdk version at the LiteRumble server side.
