Friendship/Rival Rumble - SBV
« on: May 20, 2016, 09:10:51 PM »
Surprise!



(disclaimer: this was okayed by Yugitom before the tournament began)

WHAT'S CHANGED:
You're not actually rivals!  You're teammates!  Hooray!
This will be a standard single-elimination tournament between the 8 different teams.  We're still in the Ring Arena, but I've edited the starting points slightly.

SPLASHES:

why didn't you tell me i could've fixed the arena skin so it matched the new logo

Ah well, at least this gives S_M a slight chance... or at least it would be if we weren't against the popups.

You're kidding right?
Then why is it still called Rival rumble in the SBV
i'm only a finalist in BBEAMS 7 which was a meme tournament and I just stole a NAR AI bot and made it dense as ****.
and Not Bushido was a thing that happened, I beat the #1 seed despite being #bad seed.

*Proud member of Team Popup since 2009 (seriously, I've been obsessed since around then)* Seems I missed this. Lol anyway GL all. First pure DSL tourney, so I'm totally screwed. :P

i'm going to be the party pooper :

-we kinda built partly to counter the opposite bot type, now we are supposed to fight with them ? this invalidates quite a bit of our building
-this has always been a rival thing, now it's just changed completely without asking people
-i fully understand that this robot behavior problem is a real problem and it needs to be fixed (i do not mind changes when they are necessary) but then change the arena to something similar that doesn't have the rushing problem, not the whole gimmick. And ask entrants for ideas if you change the arena : they're the ones concerned about this.
-it's changed at the last minute when everyone entered their bots which makes it infuriating.

yeah so, that change is BS. I'm just saying. I understand F'ing up rulesets is a Thrackerzod thing, but that's funny up to a point.

I am done with my rant now, now to the bots...

Flaming euthanasia :  :facepalm:

Conducting Chicken : Surprisingly it is average. Although, entering a chicken drill is really hard-mode because chicken drills do generally no damage, use a lot of power and weight, and may be cool (and noisy) but are generally weak competitively.

Carbon Dragon : I really hate flying guillotines.
Two Scarves : It's pretty damn cool. I'm not sure this hammer is the best choice for a clamp, however.

Lucius the Eternal : I am teamed with a pink and Slaaneshi bot ? Truly, this is an affront to my manliness ! Apart from that... I feel that it is not long enough (which is clearly a flaw for a slaaneshi poker of all Freudian things) and that it is going to be inverted easily. Also, lots of weight for side guards (may be necessary however) and I'm not quite sure those wheelguards are going to work, mostly due to being too small.
Blade Assault: Pretty good as far as pokers go. The popups, however, are scaring me.

Mister Smash Smash Bash-Kun! : Apart from the poor choice of name, this is a hammer, a.k.a. tournament hard mode. I still don't like how people are starting to use ant blades as flailing weapons, but that's how the metagame appears to be set up, unfortunately. Still, let's see how far it goes.

Nyoom : Favorite bot so far ! The clamp part appears somewhat weak, however.

Old Man Farts : Scary-looking, especially with no HS in the tournament. Not quite sure what's up with this multiextender setup however.

Who Needs Research : Strange wedge. Also it's fast as hell, probably too much for a popup, and will probably end up tossing opponents out of the arena ala Rage III. Or itself. Or both ! Anyways, this will be entertaining to watch.

A8ER : A solid poker, for sure. I would like to see this one fight mine 1v1 and I'm not quite sure who will win. There are some fragile parts but they appear decently protected.

literally just reVolution but in DSL : Another bot type that I hate. Then again, it's not the builder's fault.

Dinkus Prime : Very fast. Maybe a little too fast ? Armor setup is meh. Although that's DSL 2.2 so there's a change. Also those single point normals on pokers are going to harm things, I feel.

Night Man : Looks pretty well built, then again Gauche had stock to practice with so he has solid bases as a DSL builder. However, it looks... strange ? Doesn't appear invertible, but it may be just an invertible wedge...

Ear Worm : A strange wammer-shaped chicken drill. Still, as far as chicken drills go, this one is quite good. Will depend on wedge.

5x: ...What. Normally I like hybrids, but sloppy ones like that are not going to go far. Also it's s l o w, which is not good for a gut ripper.

That's the whole point of the gimmick.

-this has always been a rival thing, now it's just changed completely without asking people
If he asked people, the gimmick would have been spoiled.

-i fully understand that this robot behavior problem is a real problem and it needs to be fixed (i do not mind changes when they are necessary) but then change the arena to something similar that doesn't have the rushing problem, not the whole gimmick. And ask entrants for ideas if you change the arena : they're the ones concerned about this.
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this. He didn't change the gimmick on a whim, it was planned. All he did was change the starting points to better suit tag matches. He didn't change the gimmick based on rushing because there would have only been two robots fighting each other, anyway.

-it's changed at the last minute when everyone entered their bots which makes it infuriating.
Again, the whole point of the tournament.

Anyway, I love the good majority of the bots in this tournament! Can't wait to see some videos of them.

Well nary, I did the cheeky thing and analyzed your bot and specifically picked my weapons to last just a little longer than yours.

It *should* be just as good as your bot, sans the length because reasons.

Thanks yugi, you explained that way better than I would have.  But I would like to again point out that the "surprise change" had indeed been planned out since Day 1 of the tournament.

Yugi did a great job encouraging discussion without giving away the twist in the signups thread, by the way.  Thanks dude!

why didn't you tell me i could've fixed the arena skin so it matched the new logo
Then why is it still called Rival rumble in the SBV

I wanted the first time you realized that something was up to be seeing the new logo. And don't worry RedAce, I fixed the arena skin already.

Who Needs Research: Anyways, this will be entertaining to watch.

My job here is done.  :thumbup

As you can probably guess, I do next to no research for my dsl/if bots (and I also don't roadtest), so if it can fight, I find myself satisfied. :)

Literally the first time I've ever built a TRFBS.

wew
How you make Alarm Clock Pizza is:
Step 1: You buy an alarm clock from the store, and then you have to break it and put it in the sauce.
Step 2: Fold the sauce in 5 slices and put it in the dough.
Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
Step 9: If you think it is take to long, then get yor alarm clock and set it to now so that it will ring and you can take it out.
Step 10: Take it out uv the uvin wen it is redy and go to bed. In the morning eat pizza and also eat yor hands bi mistake.

Here's the first episode!



I tried doing some editing stuff to limit the amount of "one bot pushing another bot in a circle forever".  Lemme know what you guys think about it.

Also: Lucius the Eternal is super havoky, for some reason.
