That's a good question :P I'll have to wait for someone to announce a new HW tourney (or just save it for the OW3 World Champs, I guess).

He could put it in RWL?  :really_makes_you_think:
I don't know what that is.

I now hope Alloftheman actually made a thread for RWL in GTM and upload vids ASAP. Anyway, it's Robotic World League, a new tourney run by Alloftheman in Discord. The invite is actually over on the OW Discord

Another rebuild of an older bot: my undercutter, Bluebird. The previous versions never fought - unless you count Horror of Koror, which was basically Bluebird 4 - so hopefully this one gets some action. And hopefully it looks a bit less generic than some of my other recent builds, even if the colour scheme still feels a bit plain.

This is solid. You can 100% drop it down to 2 reds, giving you an extra 10kg to use. With your 23kg left, you could add some stronger armour up at the front, or find a way of cramming a 6 mag in??

Also feather up that skin for the birdy

Switched the batteries from blacks to reds, shrank the disc (and guard) down slightly, and dropped a couple of panels at the back from Steel to Ti. Rather than try and fit a 6-mag in, I decided to use the leftover weight to put some panels on the bottom on the wheel pods, as it didn't have any before and it felt wrong:

 


I also used BFE to hide the extender that the Tornado Mer is attached to: it's inside the chassis now instead of poking awkwardly out of the top. It wasn't visible in battle anyway, but it was visible in the Bot Lab and it annoyed the hell out of me.

For those who aren't in the Orc's Wars Discord, last weekend there was a Parsec tourney where you had one hour to build a replica of a given RW competitor, and then they all duked it out. I was given Behemoth, and ended up with this:

 


It wasn't that good, as the lifting plough was too heavy, but I thought, "Hey, that's a pretty cool shape, I could do somethin with that". And for those who aren't in the Banter Wars Discordwe really need that centralised tournament hub from the "what to do with GTM" discussion, it was announced yesterday that BW 3.5 is going to be a DSL tourney. So I rebuilt an old experiment from late 2017, using Beermoth's shape as inspiration, and behold:

 


It's underweight and practically weaponless but it's suitably "banterous" and I love it tbh

Another Nanoha-themed bot (that I should have finished weeks ago, RIP my productivity). Fast, compact, and hopefully distinct enough from my existing hammerbots.

 


Fun fact: I wanted to put a flamethrower inside the hammer, but mounted backwards, so it looked like it was rocket-propelled. Sadly it wouldn't fit :(

Another build that took way too long, but finally, here is the upgraded Absolute Zero: a tanky vert with a heart of ice.

 


I'm sure I could've spent the final 60kg on something other than covering the sides in steel wedgelets, but hey, it looks cool, right?

Finally back building stuff in RA2 again. Here's a possible Deathmatch 4 entry.

EDIT: I significantly refined this after feedback from the Robotics Tournament Server (i.e. the old OW Discord). If you want to see the original "long boi" version, click the spoiler tag below.

Made a LW for Billy's tourney and then forgot to showcase it, whoops. Here's Disquiet, a total rebuild of a bot from about 2 1/2 years ago.

A couple of weeks ago I had a mad idea, and I finally got round to finishing it:

 


The idea was to make a flamethrower bot with some actual KO potential, and so I combined the flames with a dustpan saw blade. I have no idea how the hell you would AI this thing, but it's different, and I think it came out looking pretty nice.

A while back, I made an extremely flat LW rammer named Knuckle Sandwich. The idea was to counter overheads by just being too low for them to hit. I decided to see if the concept translated to MW level - and while I'm at it, why not make two and turn them into a HW cluster?

 


I don't think the experiment worked, tbh. They're too slow to build up decent ramming power, and too under-weaponed to actually be viable as a HW cluster... plus you don't see many overheads at HW level anyway. Hmm. Well, at least it's something different.

After Octane's performance in Mech Madness 2, I decided to finally get round to updating it. What started as a simple round of upgrades eventually turned into an almost-total rebuild that took me three solid hours, but finally, here it is:

 


It has a completely new chassis, is now invertible, has enough battery to actually last three minutes, I've redesigned the front wedge, strengthened the weapon supports... I'm really happy with this thing now. This is what Octane should've been from the start.

All rise for His Royal Crab-jesty. Returning for OW4 with hinge-mounted claws, more durable wheels, and a slightly more compact chassis.

 


(Technically it's "King Crab II", but it's pronounced "King Crab the Second", like an actual monarch. I hope that's not confusing.)
