Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

Finally the cadets' league played enough matches and the results are acceptable. Because of the large number of veterans demoted in the last tournament, we had a very crowded cadets' league with 50 jrobots. Instead the veteran's league had only 7 partecipants and the veterans had a hard fight to survive. At last only 4 of them deserved to remain veterans: IonStorm (thanks to its third place in double), StrangeMatter (third-second-second), Starkle (second-fourth-third) and Tango with another triple victory. The jrobots, that suffered the close competition, are: Bohan, Stately, Headhunter. Now its their turn to decimate the cadets.

Among the cadets, the veterans demoted at the end of the previous tournament had an easy play. These jrobots achieved the requested percentages for a promotion: DarkSoldier, Snutteplutt, MarukoV4, Berserk, Dragon, Errata, ELECTRON, Jimbo, GulleFjun, Bosozoku, Mouth, Janeway, RoboOlm, FlameBall, Teddybear, KillerBees, DOOM, Hellfire.
These ones still remain cadets: Stinger, Leech, Genuine, GenuineA, Shark, Phalanx, NeoBot, Ender, Platoon, Touche, Vampire, Ajax, Battlemage, DirtyCoward, AronsRobot01, Ciaky, Kraft, Ladybug, 845bytes, RauaRoobert, Yoda, DeadDuck, Shrike, Earthworm, CounterStrike, Bizarro. TTL was uploaded too late to have its results omologated.
Finally, these jrobots were removed because of their poor results: Trofion, Sprate, TroSniper, Quake3ArenaBot, Gore2. Some of them were very young, so a renewed version will be more effective in the next tournaments.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the January 2007 JROBOTS Challenge (January 5th-27th 2007) aka JROBOTS 2K7!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

It happened again! The number of matches in the Cadtes' League is very low, so no cadet was promoted or removed. I hope the next next tournament is going to be more interesting.

Anyway, the Veterans' League performed a great struggle. The played matches ware enough, especially because of the low number of veterans, to achieve a great accuracy is estabilishing the relative valor of jrobots.
After so a great struggle, only 7 veterans survived. They are: Bohan, Stately (for their results in team category), HeadHunter (for its result in single and double category), IonStorm (which got a 4-3-3 placement), Starkle (with a 3-4-4), StrangeMatter (with 2-2-2) and finally Tango (with another triple victory). The next tournament will be even more difficult with only 7 of the strongest Veterans ever seen in the arena.
The jrobots demoted are: Errata, GulleFjun, FlameBall, RoboOlm, KillerBees, Mouth, Earthworm, Hellfire, DOOM. They are going to meet some weak cadets (for a total amount of 48 jrobots in the Cadets' League). I hope they are going to do a bit of selection there ;->

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the December 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (December 2nd-30th 2006) aka Apocalypse Now!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

After two interesting competitions among the cadets, this month no new jrobots were uploaded and consequently the number of matches is very low. This is the reason why no cadet was promoted or removed. Let's see if the next tournament is going to be more skirmished.

On the veterans' league the matches were more varied. The number of fights reached more than the requested limit to be significative and we can observe an unusual mixture of positions. In fact, Tango won double and team categories, while Starkle won in single. Then StrangeMatter interleaved its results with IonStorm.
The good news is that recently promoted jrobots behaved in a convincing way: Earthworm and the brand-new Errata survived in the close competition, thus they are going to struggle in a even closer competition during this month. Less convincing was Quake3ArenaBot: Its main problem is the poor behavior in double and team, categories in which the friend fire is deadly.
In conclusion, the survivors among the veterans: GulleFjun, FlameBall, RoboOlm, Errata, Mouth, Hellfire, DOOM, Earthworm, Bohan, Stately, KillerBees, Headhunter, IonStorm, StrangeMatter, Tango, Starkle. The demoted jrobots are: Stinger, GenuineA, Phalanx, AronsRobot01, Shark, RauaRoobert, Ender, MarukoV4, Ciaky, Quake3ArenaBot, Dragon.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the November 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (November 4th-25th 2006) aka Errata Corrige!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

This month we had another interesting competition among the jrobots uploaded in the two leagues. Again CPU time contributors did their job very well and the number of matches reached the requested level to be statistically significative. Unluckily, during the last days of the tournament we had again two results' files corruption events that, probably, had to do with too much CPU time contribution or some kind of interference between contributions and jrobots' upload. Too much CPU time contribution is an exceptional event for JROBOTS and I have to investigate on the bug causing the interference. Anyway, thanks to all the contributors.

The veterans' tournament confirmed the relative valor of the jrobots. The strongest competitors are always the same, but I'm sure to see soon brand-new effective fighters because the cadets are very active.
The survivors are: GulleFjun, FlameBall, RoboOlm (as usual for their result in team category) Bohan, Hellfire, Mouth, KillerBees, Stately, DOOM, Headhunter, IonStorm, Starkle (the last two share the - virtual - bronze medal), StrangeMatter (silver medal), Tango (gold medal and triple victory).
The list of demoted jrobots: Vampire, DarkSoldies, Berserk, Jimbo, Snutteplutt, Ladybug, ELECTRON, DeadDuck, Kraft, Bosozoku, Janeway, Teddybear.

Among the cadets, we assist to the usual change of the guard, in fact 12 veterans were demoted and 12 cadets were promoted. They are: Stinger, Phalanx, GenuineA, Shark, RauaRoobert, Ender, AronsRobot01, Ciaky, Dragon, MarukoV4, Earthworm, Errata (the latter is one of the newest jrobots uploaded).
The survivors are: Leech, 845bytes, Genuine, NeoBot, Ajax, Touche, Battlemage, Sprate, Platoon, Goro2, DirtyCoward, Yoda, Shrike, CounterStrike, Bizarro.
Finally, the removed jrobots are: NewComer, Thomas, Counter, Igor. Try again and you'll be more lucky.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the October 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (October 7th-28th 2006) aka The Decimation Continues!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans

Comments

Finally, we had an interesting Cadets' League tournament. Thank to CPU time contributors, the total number of matches, that resulted in 5637, was sufficient to test the capabilities of the cadets and their relative valor. The new rules to decide promotions and demotions made the rest and 11 jrobots were promoted to cadets for their good results in at least two categories, while 10 were removed because of their poor results in at least two categories. The new rules favour the development of good tactics in double and team categories and it's going to be very difficult for jrobots that does not recognize their friends to be promoted.
The promoted cadets are: Jimbo, GulleFjun, ELECTRON, FlameBall, Mouth, KillerBees, Bohan, HellFire, DOOM, Stately (for good results in all the categories - in fact, most of them were long aged veterans demoted for bad luck) and DarkSoldier (for good results in double and team categories).
Removed cadets are: CaptK, sprayer, FoxSierra, DarkDestroyer, Worm, Jwpazz, NumeroOtto, Gip, MaudDib (bad in double and team - probably most of them shoot at their team mates) and DirkGently (bad in single and team).
Survived in the league: Leech, 845bytes, Sprate, RauaRoobert, Platoon, Shark, Battlemage, Yoda, Ajax, Shrike, CounterStrike, Earthworm, Dragon (not promoted because bad in team category) and Bizarro (not removed because good in single).

In the Veterans' League, the number of matches was low instead. That explains the results a little different from what we are used to. Anyway Tango achieved another triple victory.
The survivors are: Vampire, DeadDuck (for the good result in single), Kraft, Ladybug (for the good result in double), Snutteplutt, Berserk (for the good result in team), Janeway, Headhunter (for good results in single and double), Bosozoku, Teddybear, RoboOlm, IonStorm, StrangeMatter, Starkle, Tango.
The demoted jrobots are: NeoBot, GenuineA, Stinger, Touche, Genuine, Phalanx, DirtyCoward, Ciaky, Ender, MarukoV4, AronsRobot01.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the September 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (September 2nd-30th 2006) aka Decimation!

Comments

Unluckily, we had another unfortunate cadets' tournament this month, in fact almost at the end of the challenge the cadets' result file became corrupted and most of the outcomes of the matches was lost. I'm sorry for the problem, but it was a long time since the last result file corruption that it should be a very uncommon event.
Probably the even happened because of the large number of cadets in the league. Since most of then are very weak and survive month after month only for a few percentage points in a single category, I think it's better to change the rules and apply them even to this months results. In practice, only the cadets that achieve a 50%,50%,25% at least in two categories are promoted, and only the cadets that are below the 25%,25%,12.5% in at least two categories are removed, except when the result in the other category is above the 50%,50%,25%.
Thank to this new rules a lot of very weak cadets were finally removed and only the most effective were promoted to veterans. Thus the final results are as follows.
Promoted cadets: Touche, Stinger, Kraft, NeoBot, Phalanx, DirtyCoward, Ender, GenuineA, Genuine, AronsRobot01, DeadDuck, MarukoV4, Snutteplutt, Ladybug, Ciaky, Berserk, Bosozoku, Vampire, Janeway, Teddybear, RoboOlm.
Survived cadets: ELECTRON, DarkSoldier, Leech, 845bytes, DarkDestroyer, Sprate, sprayer, Platoon, Yoda, DirkGently, Jwpazz, Gip, Ajax, Battlemage, Worm, Shark, FoxSierra, MaudDib, RauaRoobert, NumeroOtto, CounterStrike, Dragon, Shrike, KillerBees, Bizarro, Earthworm.
Finally, removed cadets: Mine, Rabbit, Debil, Dafnetyc, Dafneltyc, Hamilton, Halo, Shank, DarkDestroyerV04, KennyBlankenship, Joyal, GiovyVbis, GipStrict, ImprobDrive, Jwpazz2, GipLarge, AlessioV3.
During the next challenge we'll see if a more clean cadets' arena will improve the number of matches and the reliability of the results.

On the veterans' side, we had the usual fair and interesting tournament. This time the arena counted only 12 jrobots and the competition was very hard. At the end only 5 jrobots achieved the requested percentages to survive. They are: HeadHunter (for its result in single category), Starkle, IonStorm (good third place), StrangeMatter (good second place) and Tango (another triple victory).
The other were demoted and I hope they are going to do a little more selection among cadets. They are: GulleFjun, Mouth, FlameBall, Bohan, Hellfire, DOOM, Stately.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the August 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (August 5th-26th 2006) aka Gimme Five!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

It happened again! The number of matches among cadets was very small and the results can't be considered as reliable, in fact while 1000 matches per category are satisfactory among veterans, the same is not true is the crowded cadets' league with 54 teams! Thus I decided to keep the current results and let the cadets' tournament run for another month. Finally we'll discover which of the teams really deserves a promotion.

On the veterans' side, the results are more clear. 18 teams fight one against the others and only 12 survived but it's not the usual wonderful dozen. In such a competitive arena, KillerBees suffered a defeat and in July it is going to show its power among the cadets: It's not the first time that such an event happens, but it is always surprising. Other demoted veterans are: Dragon, DarkSoldier, Jimbo, ELECTRON, CounterStrike.
Other teams survived only for their good behavior in a single category. For example, GulleFjun, Mouth, FlameBall are good in team mode, while Hellfire in doubles. The jrobots that reached the 50% in all the categories are Stately, IonStorm, Starkle, StrangeMatter (with a triple second place) and Tango (with another triple victory).

The cadets' league is going to be more crowded that ever with at least 60 teams struggling. Let's see if the results of the next tournament are going to be significative.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the July 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (July 1st-29th 2006) aka Five Dozens of Cadets!

Comments

During the April challenge the number of matches among cadets was very large, but this month happened again to have a poor number of matches (a total of 1721 for all the three categories). Thus the cadets' results can't be accepted. Let's see if the positive trend of interesting matches among cadets will continue during the next tournament.

On the veterans' side, more good news. First of all, StrangeMatter won the team category with a 4% gap. However Tango won both the single and double categories and StrangeMatter was second. Is a triple victory of StrangeMatter going to come? Let's see.
Another good news is that 5 out of 29 cadets promoted in April succeeded to survive. They are: CounterStrike, DarkSoldier, ELECTRON, the good old Jimbo and, very surprisingly, my weak Dragon. Probably the large number of promoted cadets made easier to survive among the veterans, thus hard days are coming for those five survivors.
The demoted jrobots are Leech, GenuineA, Genuine, Platoon, NeoBot, AronsRobot01, DarkDestroyer, Phalanx, Battlemage, Touche, Shark, NumeroOtto, Yoda, Stinger, Ender, Ciaky, Vampire, DirtyCoward, MaudDib, MarukoV4, Snutteplutt, RauaRoobert, DeadDuck, Earthworm. The other survivors (those five apart) are GulleFjun, FlameBall, Mouth, Bohan, KillerBees, Hellfire, DOOM, Stately, Headhunter, Starkle, IonStorm, StrangeMatter, Tango.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the June 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (June 3rd-24th 2006) aka The Retreat of the 24!

Comments

During the challenge of this month the number of matches especially among cadets was very large. We got 5793 matches in the veterans league and 9794 matches in the cadetes league: I must thank all the players that donated their CPU time to make this competition very interesting. In fact, none of the cadets was promoted during the March challenge because of the low number of matches played, but now the large number of new players and new jrobots favoured a close competition and reliable final results.

Among the veterans, the ususal great result of Tango apart, there was an exploit of StrangeMatter; in fact, togheter with Starkle and IonStorm, its position in the list is stable and the achieved parcentages are very high. Caos, the author of Tango has provided an overall performance graph that keeps into account the results of the three categories. The results he got is the following (click to enlarge):

Standings April 2006

As you can see, the first place is undoubtly possessed by Tango with almost the 80%, then follows a very distinct StrangeMatter with more than 70%, and then two very near IonStorm and Starkle with more than 60%. Finally, it follows a plateau above 40% from DOOM to KillerBees made of the jrobots that usually confirm thenselves as veterans and another plateau above 30% made of jrobots that usually bounce back and forth from veterans to cadets.
To summarize, the jrobots that survived in the veterans league are: GulleFjun. FlameBall, Mouth, KillerBees, Bohan, HellFire, Stately, DOOM, Headhunter, IonStorm, StrangeMatter, Starkle, Tango. The first four survived thanks to their results in team category.
The jrobots demoted to cadets are: Berserk, Ladybug, 845bytes, Bosozoku, Shrike, Kraft, Teddybear, Janeway, RoboOlm, Bizarro.

Among the cadets the large number of matches gave interesting results. First of all, a lot of jrobots deserved a promotion because they reach the required 50% in at least one category. A special mention to DarkSoldier, CounterStrike, Jimbo, ELECTRON, Snutteplutt, that placed in the first three positions, but also to Earthworm, a brand-new jrobots that is going to be promoted at its first appearance!
I can notice that to survive among the cadets is sufficient an acceptable performance is single category, but to be promoted are necessary acceptable performances in team category, so a suggestion for novices is to improve the behavior in double and team category.
A lot of brand-new jrobots were uploaded, but only Earthworm succeeded in the enterprise of being promoted at the very first appearance. The results are the following.
Promoted: Leech, Genuine, DirtyCoward, GenuineA, Platoon, Touche, NeoBot, Shark, RauaRoobert, Stinger, Battlemage, DarkDestroyer, NumeroOtto, AronsRobot01, Phalanx, Yoda, Ender, ELECTRON, MaudDib, MarukoV4, Snutteplutt, Vampire, Ciaky, Jimbo, DeadDuck, Dragon, Earthworm, DarkSoldier, Counterstrike.
Survived: Joyal, DarkDestoyerV04, DirkGently, Sprate, GipStrict, AlessioV3, Shank, Jwpazz, GiovyVbis, Worm, sprayer, Jwpazz2, GipLarge, Gip, Ajax, FoxSierra.
Removed: Evan, Wombat, belva, Satellite.
There are 29 jrobots promoted. Let's see what is going to happen in a very crowdy veterans league during the next challenge.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the May 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (May 6th-27th 2006) aka The Charge of the 29!

Comments

The cadets' league of this month played very few matches so the results are unreliable. I don't know why that happened. There are two possible causes: the visitors and CPU donors of the cadets' league were a reduced number in comparison with the last months, or some of the new uploaded jrobots sometimes crash the Java virtual machine, so only few matches per session are played.
Anyway the new jrobots haven't reached the requested percentages or the requested number of matches to survive, thus they were removed. For what regards the promotions, I don't think that is agood idea to promote anyone because of the low number of played matches. Bad jrobots could be promoted, so it's better to wait the results of the next tournament.
To summarize, the jrobots Gp, T900, Gladiator, unoROBmille, Gip were removed, all the others cadets survive.

Also on the veterans' side the number of played matches were low, but at least acceptable. As usually happens in these circumstances, Tango failed to get another triple Victory. In fact, IonStorm won the double category. It seems that IonStorm can menace the Tango superiority but can't sustain it on the long run.
The survivors among the veterans are: 845bytes, Ladybug, Berserk, GulleFjun, Kraft, Bosozoku, Mouth, Janeway, Teddybear, Shrike, StrangeMatter, Bizarro, RoboOlm, Bohan, FlameBall, KillerBees, Stately, DOOM, HellFire, IonStorm, Starkle, Tango; while the demoted jrobots are: DarkSoldier, FoxSierra, Leech, Phalanx, NumeroOtto, NeoBot, Stinger, Touche, Battlemage, Ciaky, MaudDib, ELECTRON, RauaRoobert, DarkSoldier, Yoda, CounterStrike.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the April 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (April 8th-29th 2006) aka Extended Play!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

Cadets attack the veterans month by month and sometimes happens that some of them succeed in their effort. In fact a few of recently promoted cadets achieved the requested percentages to survive at least in one category. The final result is that the survivors in the veterans' league are 21, while only 16 were demoted.
At the same time, among the cadets there is a great struggle for promotion and 18 were effectively promoted, 11 survived and 3 were removed.
This means that the March tournament will see 39 jrobots fighting in the veterans' league and only 27, at least at the beginning, in the cadets' league.

The results of the veterans' league are the following.
As usual, Tango got a triple victory! Then comes Starkle, IonStorm, Stately, DOOM, Hellfire, Headhunter, Bohan, StrangeMatter, Mouth, KillerBees, RoboOlm, GulleFjun, FlameBall. Other survivors are: CounterStrike, Shrike, Janeway, DarkSoldier (thanks to their result in single category) and Bosozoku, Kraft, Ladybug (for their result in double). The latter jrobots survived for a few percentage points over the limit, so their authors have to improve them at least a little to avoid a demotion in March.
The demoted jrobots are: Genuine, Sprate, Platoon, Ajax, GenuineA, Ender, Jwpazz2, Shark, AronsRobot01, DirtyCoward, MarukoV4, Vampire, Jimbo, Snutteplutt, DeadDuck, Dragon.

On the cadets' side, there are a lot of jrobots with interesting results in single category. They'd better to implement some algorithm to recongnize their friends, in fact the results in single are not replicated in other categories. In particular, there are some jrobots with good results in double and team categories but not in singles: This means that the jrobots tailored for singles are really good, then a better behavior in other categories is going to improve their results a lot.
The promoted are: Leech (only for team), 845bytes, Touche, ELECTRON, RauaRoobert (near 50%), Yoda, FoxSierra (for single), NeoBot, DarkDestroyer (only for single), NumeroOtto (only for single), Stinger, Phalanx, MaudDib (only for single), Ciaky, Berserk, Bizarro (only for single) and Teddybear (the latter with the usual very high percentages in all the categories, at least among the cadets). Finally, Battlemage had a low number of matches played, but it was promoted because it was very near to the limit. Let's give it the possibility to gain a month and fight immediately the strongest jrobots to show its value.
The survivors are: Satellite, T900, sprayer, Shank, DirkGently, DarkDestroyerV04, Jwpazz, Worm, GiovyVbis, AlessioV3 and Gladiator (the last one had very few matches played).
Finally, the removed jrobots are: Sniper, Counter, Carnage (the last because of its poor percentages, the others because they are copies of the sample jrobots in the SDK).

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the March 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (March 4th-25th 2006) aka Cadets Attack Again!

Yellow-colored robots were promoted to Veterans
Pink-colored robots were removed from the arena
* the robot didn't reach the N/4 limit

Comments

The last tournaments show a renewed interest in JROBOTS thanks to the great new server that hosts the matches provided by Frank. New authors upload their creatures in the arena and some of them are promoted: Five, this month.

First of all, some comments about the Veterans' League. They are written by Samuel, the promoter in the recent past of the JROBOTS prizes and subtle interviewer of some of the strongest players.

"The January competition was an important one.
Here I have some my comments for the Veteran League.
The important robots met at the same time. The robots that survived December challenge in the Veterans League and veterans coming back (from "Shoot to kill mission" in Cadets League) met at the main arena to decide who was going to be the genuine veteran.
At the very top there was no surprises.

Singles:
Tango, Starkle and IonStorm took the lead over the rest. Tango again proved its killing power winning 93% of the matches!
Starkle and Tango were more than 80% effective.
The list of robots killing most of the time follows:
Hellfire, Stately, Headhunter, Bohan, DOOM, StrangeMatter, RoboOlm, KillerBees, Mouth, FlameBall, GulleFjun, Shrike. 15 Great robots!
Please notice great performance by new robots Hellfire and StrangeMatter.
Updated and equipped with bag of new tricks will be a permanent fixture in the Veterans League now. Being more than 70% effective Hellfire burned many robots on its way to the top. RoboOlm and Shrike had a good performance too.

Doubles:
Tango, Starkle and IonStorm were at the top as expected.
Stately, DOOM, Bohan, Headhunter, StrangeMatter, Mouth, Hellfire, KillerBees, FlameBall, Bosozoku, Jimbo followed. Bosozoku and good old Jimbo joined the group pushing down RoboOlm, GulleFjun and Shrike. We have 14 robots here.

Team:
No one knows how to play the team challenge as good as Tango and IonStrom. The efficiency gap over the rest is 20%! Bohan was third. Good player!
This is a game for the mature boys only and the list follows:
Tango, IonStorm, Bohan, GulleFjun, Mouth,Starkle, FlameBall, DOOM, StrangeMatter, RoboOlm, Hellfire, KillerBees, Stately. 13 robots.
I regret that Headhunter cannot join the group due to the internal error. Also Teddybear and 845bytes was very close to stay in the league. With the Hellfire and StrangeMatter around fights will be tough now!
My special kind words go to the 845bytes. This very symmetrical robot fights by the same rules in all modes. And this makes him quite effective! Here is a word of encouragement for some robots. It is very easy to implement "Do not shoot to the friend rule" see examples done by Leo. It would allow many good robots e.g. CounterStrike to become Veterans

   Samuel"

Thank you Samuel for your comments!

On the cadets' side there are a lot of good (and bad for someone) news.

Five new jrobots succeeded in being promoted. They are: Genuine, GenuineA, Jwpazz2, Ender, AronsRobot01. The last two especially seems to be quite effective, if further improved, among the veterans, thus the February challenge is going to be very interesting with 37 teams in the Cadets' League.
The other jrobots promoted are: DirtyCoward, Sprate, Ajax, Kraft, Platoon, Shark, MarukoV4, Snutteplutt, Ladybug, Vampire, Dragon, DeadDuck, Janeway, CounterStrike, DarkSoldier. A special mention for the last two: CounterStrike for the gained percentage and DarkSoldier for its particular tactic (if you saw DarkSoldier fighting, you can imagine where its name comes from).
The survivors among the cadets are: DarkDestroyerV04, T900, Carnage, DirkGently, Satellite, Shank, Jwpazz, FoxSierra, GiovyVbis, AlessioV3, DarkDestroyer. They are going to met the following demoted veterans: Leech, NeoBot, Phalanx, Stinger, Touche, MaudDib, 845bytes, Ciaky, ELECTRON, NumeroOtto, RauaRoobert, Berserk, Yoda, Bizarro, Teddybear. The last one is the only jrobots written by a girl that I'm aware of, so I hope it is going to come back among the veterans soon.
Finally, the removed jrobots are: Jerobot, ZBot, Ro1, Ro, T100. A quite large number for the usual standards, but they are all new jrobots and takes a lot of time to novices to reach the requested skills to survive. The next challenge will be easier for them.

Now you can upload your jrobots to win the February 2006 JROBOTS Challenge (February 4th-25th 2006) aka Cadets Attack!
