Split up. Take them one-on-one.

on Wednesday, August, 03, 2011 10:58 AM
Research suggests that soccer goalies are biased to dive right when the stakes are high.

From the article:
Among humans, dogs and some other animals, individuals unconsciously move to the right when they approach something they really want. Lovers tend to lean their heads to the right when they kiss; dogs wag their tails to the right when their masters approach.

I wonder:
  • Is there a way to determine if this rightward bias exists among lightcycle riders on the Grid? That is, do programs tend to break right in the lightcycle arenas?
  • If it does exists, what strategies/tactics be developed to exploit it?


What do you call a program who brings a disc to a light cycle battle? Derezzed.

I would assume it's based on handedness. Since a majority of people in the world are right-handed, most soccer goalies are probably right-handed and dive to the right. Likewise, if there were a left-handed soccer goalie, they would probably dive to the left a majority of the time.

Assuming programs have a handedness, such a bias could probably exist.
