Round 7 - Restricted Distance Round

Round 7 is a restricted distance round similar to a round held in a tournament held before I started playing. Competitors were encouraged to write extremely aggressive warriors through the lop-sided scoring. It was also possible to brainwash a warrior so that you could win every subsequent round. There is a minor difference though...

In Round 7, minimum distance is set at 3998. This gives five possible places where the enemy could be. You are still encouraged to find a warrior that wins a lot with the weighted scoring system.

Round 7 Hints

You know almost exactly what position the enemy will occupy to begin. A Qscan can narrow this still further very quickly. How can you exploit that information? A maximum warrior length of five hundred gives you and your opponent a lot of space to hide in.
