I was not around when ad.last.Bottom was created, but it was obviously intended to be the absolute worst performer in the Robo Rumble. That seemed like a good challenge. I think I outdid him.


After 208 battles pedersen.Moron v1.0 is at 101.09, compared to ad.last.Bottom at 149.18. Moron v2.0 finally ousted SittingDuck for last place in the melee rumble, and brought new depths to the duelist ranking.

Debugging, Statistics, and Persistence

Moron performes no file i/o in order to reduce the chance of throwing an exception due to the cannon caches bug.
