So I just noticed the "meleeTop30rumble" ... Are we specifically trying NOT to call it the "GigaMeleeRumble"? :-) I was just getting archived rankings working again (and @roborumble on Twitter) and paused at what to call it. Any objection to GigaMeleeRumble?
No objections here. Also, glad to see you pulled back into this world of battle.
I managed to get Nene up two more ranks recently (But haven't really been working on it much tbh).
Haha, thanks. :-) It's nice to get rrtweeter and rrarchiver up and running again, but don't expect a new version of Diamond any time soon. :-P
The only thing I'm still interested in is beating DrussGT head-to-head. But ever since I started development on BerryBots, it's just felt wrong to spend any of my recreational coding time on Robocode bots. I've got the new AngularJS web UI mostly done and I also have a cool new stage that I want to write. Plus I've got an entirely new, fully web-based game in mind which is just in brainstorm / research phase... So yeah, Robocode bots are a no-go. :-)
Well, I would argue the GigaRumble should be renamed to the Top30Rumble. I was the one who created the meleeTop30rumble. The name make sense to me. Top30 is self speaking, unlike GigaMeleeRumble which confusingly seems to be opposite of nano/micro/mini, i.e. refers to the size. I presume it has some historical roots, but I joined robocode too late to know the meaning of the Giga name.
May be someone with longer presence can enlighten us about the Giga name history.
