August 31st 2001
Month after month we see the fall of all the veterans of the arena. The last challenge saw the defeat of Tiny, DareDevil, Ciaky, Phalanx; now other old aged robots are thrown out of the arena: Stinger, MarmotteAgile, Platoon, MarukoV4 and Vampire. The latest three robots battled in the arena since the early beginning of these competitions, but the rank of the challengers was very high in the Summer 2001 Jrobots Challenge and some of them can't survive without some revitalizing fight agaist weak robots.
The strong robots are always the same: KillerBees, Myst, IlTristoSmorzatore, Fish, the Monty series. Other robots such as Pulse1, Epa1, LvRDumber, Jimbo and Marvin3 suffered the new composition of the arena.
The new entries Sloth and bdj1 didn't reach the requested limit of matches to accept their results, but they got the requested victory-matches ratio and they can show their value in the next challenge.
bdj1 is a clone of Platoon (MORE or less the same robot), so the concept of Platoon still survives even if the original was removed.
The robots fought a total amount of 8735 battles.
To see the results read the Challenges page.
Here is an abstract:
|Single Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||93.63%|
|Double Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||88.50%|
|Team Winner||KillerBees||by MontyFish||58.20%|
Now you can upload your robots to win the September 2001 Jrobots Challenge (September 8th-29th 2001) aka The Veterans' Fall.
