Well the idea behind this new benchmark was essentially to give corewar
newbies a group of warriors that represent as diverse a set of strategies
as possible. This is the best way to detect flaws in the code or
shortcomings in the strategy. The warriors chosen are as follows:

He Scans Alone
Jack in the box
David Moore and I (John Wilkinson) tried to choose a warrior set which
would give us a reasonable picture of the "overall" performance of a warrior.
Do to the ever-changing nature of the game, the ideal benchmark is an unachievable
dream, however this seems to be one of the best such attempts. I
hope it helps new players get an idea of what a "good" warrior must be
able to do.
Check out some results David Moore cranked out
using the benchmark!!
