Round 3 - Battle the Grey Warrior
Fighting a white warrior, a warrior whose code is known, is a standard challenge in corewar tournaments. The name presumably stems from the same place as the term white box (in enginnering). A white box is the opposite of a black box. A black box is a system you know nothing about but the inputs and outputs - quite similar to an entry on the standard hills.
Round 3 is a fight against a grey warrior. Much is known about my grey warrior but you don't have an exact copy of the source code. Is it still possible to effectively combat a warrior with some variance?
My grey warrior consists of three components - a paper, a stone and an imp-launcher. I may put one or several processes in each component. I will not include a QScan but I may include a decoy maker.
