This time two robots almost succeeded in beating KillerBees. The first one is IlTristoSmorzatore: it got a good percentage in single match but it's poor in other types of play. The second one is Myst, a clone of KillerBees written by another author. This robot is not the same as KillerBees, but it's very similar so I think that its author has (slightly) modified the source of KillerBees. Since it was uploaded a week after the start of the challenge it didn't reach the limit necessary to validate its results. In the next challenge we'll see if those changes make Myst a better KillerBees.
However, KillerBees won all the three categories for the fifth time in the history of Jrobots.
This challenge brought us good news: Fish is back and it's stronger than ever. I wish to thank WalterNistico; he removed an annoying bug of Fish and now we can see its real power.
Some of the robots uploaded during the last challenge revealed theirself very weak. The result is that eight robots were removed from the arena.
The robots fought a total amount of 4659 battles.
To see the results read the Challenges page.
Here is an abstract:
|Single Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||93.69%|
|Double Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||90.48%|
|Team Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||72.64%|
Now you can upload your robots to win the May-June 2001 Jrobots Challenge aka Did Myst killed KillerBees?.
