Impressive early work dude, hope you stick around.
Nice idea and shape, I would say however that it can be neater, and with the actual weaponry, it seems you've opted for more of a balance between aesthetics and damage. Im sure you could make a more appealing weapon disk to suit the IRL style of the bot.

Here is me being a total *insert insult of choice* of myself.

Yes. That is a Dual Perm on a MW with only 56kgs of weapons. It works as well as you'd expect from a robot called 'The Spikeball Theory'.


I improved le unoriginal sns by... actually downgrading its weapon weight, converting it into a Trinity SNS and calling it MINDFREAK. It deals heavy damage, but it is a havoc fest, sadly.

I like the Spikeball theory as a design. Won't like it in the arena due to being unstable :P

The cataclysm ripoff... I think you need longer pistons really. Go for vdma's.

Got a new 'bot to show you.

This robot was originally intended to have an axe, but I later gave it a flipper for easy kills via flipping. It's slow, but then again, I haven't been on for a while. Features 2 TWM3R motors with Pussycat wheels.

How did I do?

Upgraded Dead Reckoning.



This could feature an axe/drum/clamp/potato if I decide to add it. Anyways, is it any better than before?

yay same irl robot new features i guess  :ermm:

Modifications:
--Now has the 3mm Tita armour again
--Features more armour plating that covers the robot a lot better
--The rear end has been completely revised, instead having a rear axle extender for stabilisation and to avoid back-stranding. Also features better rear armour plating.
--Better battery power (I think)
--Around 798 KGs

Is it any better than the previous 2 versions?

I can't honestly judge, although maybe try 2WD NPC Fast. That should be better than 4WD magmotor drive.

I have tried to use 2 NPCF drive, but the problem was that I had to increase the size of the armour plating around DR which consequently increased weight, so 4 TWM3R's are going to end up becoming the best option for the robot, I feel.

guys I'm proud to announce that Dead Reckoning is now a father :D

Mini-Dead isn't the best 'bot ever, but I just decided to slap on a Beta motor on a LW due to DSL 2.2's power mechanics. It has 2 Astroflights and is severely underpowered, but can still flip over other 'bots with little fuss.
Dead Reckoning has had some changes as well - notably, the flipper is created out of steel as opposed to titanium. The base construction of the 'bot has also been shaved off to save on weight, which is why it has a flipper with better armour.

Here is a revision of one of my earlier 'bots in the showcase, Alphastorm.

It still needs some improvements, such as a srimech, but it looks a lot better than before.

The real question is, do you agree with me?

A quadruple post. *sigh* Ah, well, here is a new IRL-'bot by me.

Can someone reply to me already for some feedback?

E-teks are overkill for just two saws. I'd probably upgrade the saws to full-fledged vertical spinners. Try a 100cm disc with some weapons on it.

Bot itself looks pretty cool though.
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.

I improved Judicator and created the middleweight version, aptly named Negotiator.

(There is no internal shot as they are both the same, with 4 ants, 2NPC's, the control board and the main extender part that constructs the entire frame.)
The Negotiator (Right): Features two Microvore flywheels on a twin-axle E-Tek motor and is driven by 2 NPC's with mudrunner wheels. Weighs 397KGs and is armoured in 3mm titanium. The kickstand is not present due to weight.
The Judicator (Left): The extender work is now aluminium with some titanium for increased durability and the E-Tek now drives 2 Mechavore flywheels. Weighs 797KGS and the armour is downgraded to 3mm titanium due to the protection around the chassis.

Are they any better?

when a HW VS has the same amounts of weapons than a MW VS, there is something wrong with it.

To be honest, I tend to go for a proper IRL style build as opposed to the "kill everything in 1 nanosecond" philosophy. Still, both don't have the same weapon weight - Judicator has 50KGs extra weapon weight compared to Negotiator due to the Mechavore discs and spikes as opposed to just Microvore discs.

I wonder if there's a way to make the stabilizers look a little more solid. Perhaps sacrifice a little bit of drive for that?

I'm not too sure what to do with this one exactly.

I think I might buff up the robot to a HW by adding weapons or just leaving it a CW level. Either way, I need a bit of help as to what to do with this. The plating around Challenger is steel with titanium at the back.
