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

Why not? ;)

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.

Well, originally the name was Strongest Bots Rumble. Yeah, I used "giga" as a riff on (bigger than) "mega" when we finally implemented it, whatever 9 years later.
