Very Spicy
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

My entry for 09's chassis swap tourney. I got one of the worst chassis designs, but I think I did a pretty good job with it:

 


It's fast, tough, and 140kg of counterweights means it can actually lift and throw things (not every time, but it can). I suspect it won't do too well with the AI controlling it, but it's not like I'm the world's greatest driver anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This was gonna be my Anonymous Assault entry, but it turned out 100kg underweight, so rather than try and bulk it up I just lowered the top and bottom panels to Ti and boom, CW. I needed a new CW anyway so it works out pretty nicely.

Quick 2.4 update just to try and get myself back in the mood for Botober again:

 


The spring-loaded Beta motor has been swapped for a pair of wide mediums, making it a lot more powerful, but I had to reconfigure the internals and then downgrade some of its armour. I'm particularly unhappy with the rear wheels, and I might swap them for Hypnos to flatten it out and save weight. Reception in the Discord was positive, though, so I'll leave it as it is for now, make it my Nabi Cup 4 entrant, and tweak it further based on how it does there.

I like the robot and have no major complaints, however plastic 10 seems a little overkill, especially for a medium-heavy extender armored bot.
the heavy is dead

Needed a third bot for OW5, wanted something that had competed previously, and ended up building five hours rebuilding this thing from scratch. Oops.

 


It looks mostly the same, but there've been plenty of upgrades under the hood. The internal frame is stronger and shouldn't split in half if you hit it in the right place, the wedgelets are more effective, and the armour panels at the back have been BFEd to fit together more neatly (the previous version used wedge edges to cover the gaps, which isn't feasible now that they're 10kg each).

It's probably gonna be my reserve, so it may not get to fight, but hopefully it can get a shot at redemption.

Might look better with Wedgelets that are orange or red, rather than yellow.

Soft spot for Vesuvius <3 Love that from you

I think the OG version had red wedgelets, so I can switch back to red.

I feel like it's gotten kind of a mixed reception and I really don't know how well it'll do, so it's good to hear some praise for it :)

Polished up an old Botober entry, and also took the opportunity to test using BFE to create sloped top plates. Works like a charm!

 


Also made a version for KDestroyer's tourney that has only 1 black, Plastic 5, and steel wedgelets instead of titanium.

Miiiiiight **** around and do a whole set of coloured ant wheel components 👀

First 2021 build is an upgraded Bardiche for Arena Champions 3. Swapped the dual flatmotors for dual TWM3Rs, adjusted the wheels to stop them clipping through the extenderwork and reduce the risk of front-flipping, and did some general tidying-up.

 


Next on my priority list is my World War RA2 Series 3 entry, which should be interesting...

My World War RA2 Series 3 entry was indeed interesting, and then I forgot to post it here...

 


It's based on a design I experimented with before but never finished. The head and neck are mounted on a Slow Mag Snapper, giving it enough power to lift opponents into the air and to self-right.

Speaking of experimental designs, here's something I intend to throw in for Parsec World Tour:

 


A linear actuator-powered forklift is a weapon design I've looked into in the past, and it's actually quite handy for letting you lift opponents off their wheels and push them around. Its drive is surprisingly good, and I did well with Aquamarine in the PWT pilot by using a similar strategy, so this could work well. Or it could fail spectacularly, but that's why it's only an experiment. Also I'm not sure about the name.

Here is my extremely original Geodome entry that has totally never been done before  heck

 


Seriously, what else are you supposed to do with this chassis shape? I at least tried to put in a decent amount of effort to make it look nice. I don't expect it to win, but whatever.
