I think the higher bullet power made it waste energy quicker, giving it an extra loss or two, which pushed a bunch of bots over into the random movement instead of orbit/oscillate.

One thing I noticed while watching battles was if it starts from very far away it does loops instead of settling for a nice orbital movement. I'm thinking of decreasing the turn amount caused by the distancing, especially as it isn't as sensitive to that now that the gun can handle any distance correctly.

Okay. Let's change the BP back to 2.33... and the constant in the distance controller from 2500 to 3000.

We also might try doing 3/orbit + 3/oscillate + 94/random instead of 2/orbit + 2/oscillate + 96/random.

One step at a time, I'd rather have less sacrificial rounds against top bots and lower the bullet power, although that gets us right back to where we were. I also want to see where the threshold is, so how about BP 2.666?

Sounds good.
