We had a dream: the end of KillerBees :). Now that dream is broken because the promising Myst failed to beat it. It didn't matter that Myst was almost the same robot, we wanted a new winner, but KillerBees got again very high percentages in all the three categories.
Other robots that got good placements are NeoMonty, IlTristoSmorzatore, Myst, Fish and Epa1. They are known good robots, but there are even two brand-new entries (Imatron and Firetron) that reached good placements.
Now the bad news: Tiny, DareDevil, Ciaky, Phalanx and the youngest KafeBot are out of the arena because they didn't reach the requested limit of victories-matches percentage in the three categories. They were old aged good robots, but now there is a keen competition in the arena and it's a hard life for our little robots.
Finally, even Lucky is out of the game. Its fire algorithm was to fire randomly all around: in spite of its name, it wasn't lucky enough to survive and it's surprising that it won a match over 307 matches played :)
The robots fought a total amount of 2950 battles.
To see the results read the Challenges page.
Here is an abstract:
|Single Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||93.67%|
|Double Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||94.03%|
|Team Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||71.15%|
Now you can upload your robots to win the Summer 2001 Jrobots Challenge (July 1st-August 31st 2001) aka KillerBees rules!.
