What's special about it?
It's my best attempt at a nano Rambot. And it does quite well at it :)
How competitive is it?
Bleh - about 40th percentile in Nano rankings, 55ish in APS.


How does it move?
Linear lead where enemy is traveling and move towards that point. Slowdown if you need to turn quickly. Dodge if he fires outside of around 180ish distance.
How does it fire?
Straight Linear aim.
How does it dodge bullets?
Watches enemy power levels and moves when it changes at all.
How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?
It dies :).
What does it save between rounds and matches?

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
Getting rammed is like the ocean's tide sneaking up on you.
Can I use your code?
Go for it.
What's next for your robot?
It can be improved a bit more in power management, but not much.
Does it have any White Whales?
Any anti-rammer code will destroy it. SledgeHammer is still superior.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
Similiar to SledgeHammer.
