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!
