Can't wait to see what you've got planned, guys!

Quick note: I made a couple of clarifications in the OP. I don't know why I cut it out when transferring my original comment to this topic, but obviously there are no re-entries from other tournaments allowed. These are all meant to be fresh designs.

Additionally, I made a quick clarification that only 1 part in a 2-part multibot needs to follow the Active Weapon rule, as it applies to the total entry.

Finally, this should go without saying, but keep all bot names pronounceable and realistic as well. I'll reject any "Carolina Campos etc..." situations or anything that would make a mother blush. I'm not a prude and I don't mind a little off-color humor, but trying to keep it somewhat professional on that front, since I'll be doing VOs.

Hi, Phil Swift here with Flex Tape! The super-strong waterproof tape! That can instantly patch, bond, seal, and repair! Flex tape is no ordinary tape; its triple thick adhesive virtually welds itself to the surface, instantly stopping the toughest leaks. Leaky pipes can cause major damage, but Flex Tape grips on tight and bonds instantly! Plus, Flex Tape’s powerful adhesive is so strong, it even works underwater! Now you can repair leaks in pools and spas in water without draining them! Flex Tape is perfect for marine, campers and RVs! Flex Tape is super strong, and once it's on, it holds on tight! And for emergency auto repair, Flex Tape keeps its grip, even in the toughest conditions! Big storms can cause big damage, but Flex Tape comes super wide, so you can easily patch large holes. To show the power of Flex Tape, I sawed this boat in half! And repaired it with only Flex Tape! Not only does Flex Tape’s powerful adhesive hold the boat together, but it creates a super strong water tight seal, so the inside is completly dry! Yee-doggy! Just cut, peel, stick and seal! Imagine everything you can do with the power of Flex Tape!

No weapon spam (mainly no more than 1 Mech disc, 2 Frenzy Hammers, kind of common sense stuff).

Just a friendly heads up, you're allowed to say who entered what into personal tournaments now.

Unless you want to keep it a secret, which is also 100% fine.

Cheers, this is awesome to hear! I made a general credits section at the bottom of the OP for now, then will credit each individual bot when applications end and selection day rolls around.

Sidenote: 14 bot applications on the first day alone was above and beyond what I expected. A big thank you to all those who have sent your impressive creations so far. May many more be on their way!

Let me know if you received the PM and/or email that I sent. Could be something blocking messages between us, for some reason?

44 applications within the week, this is really encouraging folks! We should hit 64 and beyond easily. :)

As is evident in the rules, some small modifications were made to address some personal concerns and questions that were raised in discussions about potential entries. If anyone was building thoughtfully and within the specifications/spirit of the rules already, these changes should not concern you.

Reskins and re-sends of existing entries are fine by me up until the March 13th deadline, as long as no changes are made to give your entry a competitive advantage over another bot in the tournament.

Due to the unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to reskin my bot.  If you want it to be that ugly color is fine by me, but if you want to pull it, I'll be ok with that.  Going through some emotional issues and lost complete focus.
