:arrow:There should be one challenge where people are meant to use motors for drive only. (NO WEAPON MOTORS.)This is because of Clickbeetle's awesome bot "Ludicrous Speed". It shows people can use other means of weaponry...

That's called a rammer.  And Click's bot used at least 2 burst motors for his weapons.
Your thinking of Long Bow, Ludicrous Speed does not have any burst motors.

How about an art bot BOTM? I know theres a few people out there that have built cars in DSL. We could try something like that to really change it up.

it just uses momentum

the robot hitting the Vlad forks lifts the front up

the robot smashes into the wall storm 2 style making the robot sitting on the flipper fly out of the arena.

Ah I see.  Well, my mistake then.

Also, I'd like vote "Yes" on having an art BOTM

How about a BOTM decided with the "Roll a die to build a bot" system?
Put this onto your signature if you were part of this crappy fad in '03.

I was actually thinking of someone (I can or serge.. or someone else) makes a custom motor or something that doesnt fit in well with common designs and you must use 4 of them or something on a DSL robot.

Well, let's see his entry, then  = P
 
EDIT: Seriously though, I think that would be a fun topic for a BOTM. How about it ACAMS?   :approve:

I bet 027 would take a shot at that, he <3's trains.

* cue someone with ASDFmovie2 clip*

and we hadn't had an "anything goes" BOTM since 2008, it would be cool to have another one.

S-32, I'm trying to picture the details of such.  Could you expound on your idea, please?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Input is appreciated. :)

We can have another anything goes BOTM, but it is July, and I don't know what theme to call.
If we make steam trains I will win
If we make spiders, I will win
If we make airplanes, I will win.....so you guys need to decide what I win with.  :p
