prediction time !

AngryKillerWhale : ...it has stock T-extenders as a weapon rack :SFTW

Black Moon : Well, it's my robot. We'll see how it goes. It's not very oldschool to be honest, although it DOES look like a 2010-esque build from me, so a bit. I think it looks good however and a VS/ram is decently original.

Death of Angles 3 : Wasn't he previous death of angles a popup ? Anyways... I like it because it's very BBEANS2-esque (what was that bot named ? Maulinator or something ?) and it is a wedged shell spinner. The wedge actually pointing the right way remains to be seen, however. Also : it'll lose to the first spinner it meets easily, calling it now.

EAT RANDOM MUSHROOMS : It's not especially interesting... not very oldschool as well.

EVIL SONIC : Meh, re-entries. See ERM for how I feel about it. Well, it's more original than the former.

Fat Fever : Generic

Flipper from the West : I... suppose ? It's not very good or oldschool.

Metal Smashin' : Now that's a bot I like. It's Ordo Malleus with pokers which means it is both oldschool and a hybrid. Thumbs up.

Nigel : I suppose it is more interesting than the genericville entrants. Very quick. Will depend on wedges a lot. Not a lot of weapons, so it can just get tossed

Not Bushido : There are worse entrants... It is both rare (samurai sword popups aren't very common) and bland. Will depend on wedge, although it does need to be faster.

Nuclear Arms Race : For a Clickbeetle bot, it is noticeably unsophisticated. Still decent, however.

Ohm's Law : This is going to OOTA everything with incredible ease considering only about 2 bots (hint: it's the HS's) can face them with any chance of victory. So it's kinda like a crawler in a rammer tournament D:

Well, to SM's credit, the effectiveness of flipper multibots depends on the number of HS/SnS in the tourney, and he didn't had the splash before building the bot. Still...

Questions : It looks cool. Still a bit on the generic side.

Radiant Storm : Eh. It's... okay, but nothing special.

Tentacle Assault : It's a hybrid, a rarely seen bot type, and I think it's either a wammer/side hammer or something of a trapper/weaponed flipper. It's not too oldschool, but I still love it. <3

Yeah, some people should have put a bit more effort into their bots...

And now for the round 1 predictions.

Evil Sonic > Bushido : Unless bushido is actually wedgier than Shadow the Edgehog.

Nigel > FFTW : Yeah. Doubt fftw can actually get under Nigel, although it can happen.

Radiant Storm < Nuclear Arms Race : In most cases, HS > VS.

Fat Fever =/= Angry Killer Whale : Actually i kinda expect an OOTA by the newbie, considering it's a giant-ass dual perm spinner with no front/rear stabilizers VS a rammer in this arena (and it will be hilarious). However, that will depend of the speed of the rammer, and it doesn't look very fast. So it could go either way.

Metal Smashin' =/= Black Moon : This will be interesting. I have the bot type advantage and more weapon weight, while he has more armor and he can possibly attack me from the top. Will depend on wedges a lot, of course, but I am looking forward to this match. I am slightly unhappy about being either eliminated or eliminating a cool bot for the first round, but it's what happens.

Ohm's Law >>> Death of Angles 3 : Well, remember when I said " a spinner will kill this ?" I was just forgetting Ohm's Law. Anyways, DoA3 doesn't have enough bite to really stop the flippers, so it'll just go OOTA quickly.

I'm pretty happy with the bot lineup. Problem is that the flipper multibot tactic is very luck based. I think at some point my bots are going to flip each other out.
Better than GK since 2009.
I think SM is a pretty cool guy, eh builds unicycle-bots and doesn't afraid of anything

my predictions.

angryKILLER Whale: well, its my bot so i hope it does great.

Black moon: it looks like a great spinner

death by angels 3 : what happens wen it is flipped

eat random mushrooms: i don't know what it will do

evil sonic: is it as fast as sonic?

fat fever: eeeeeeh.........

flipper from the west: one of the only flippers. suprising

metal smashing: what will it do?

Nigel: what does it do?

not bushido: those wheels look exposed

nuclear arms race: sort of final destiny. i hope it doesn't do what he did

ohms law: the only multy bot

questions: spinner

tentacle assault: don't hug me , please.

I think that Nuclear arms race will win.

Those where my predictions.

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.

Loser's Round 2 is now up.  Things should theoretically go smoother from here on out as I get Loser's Round 3 up.

Edit: Loser's Round 3 is now up.
