why are the newbies already so good at dsl smh
All the old guard had to relearn DSL and convert their mindset from DSL-S to IRL. Newbies and people that didn't build much DSL-S in 2.1 came in with a fresh mind and so take to the very different building style more easily. It's why you don't really see the best 2.1 or stock builders making god-tier IRL bots, I think.

Took me a fair while to get used to DSL though honestly, I had no idea that DSL 2.1 was as different as what it sounds.

I'm glad you think I'm good at this building stuff though. :mrgreen:

I've been working on a few weird bits of stuff recently so have a mix of robots! These aren't my best bots, just ideas I wanted to try, they'll be improved in the future! First up is Squish...think Milly Ann Bug but with 2 more sections. Each section contains a battery to run the robot while the head has the motors, control board and main ramming weapons.  :smile:

Secondly, here is Robo-Punk. A friend asked me to make a 4 wheeled robot with a wedge-like front. (Yes it is underweight, wasn't sure what to add to it!)

Lastly, here is Duality, I feel it looks a lot like Pitbull from Robot Wars. It isn't the most efficient bot but I wanted to see if I could make this wacky, invertible idea come to life.  :mrgreen:

Thanks, I can see why Duality is weird...will have to redo it sometime!

In the meantime, here is the first of a series of construction/scrapheap themed robots: presenting Tearaway! I wanted to make a Killertron/Terrorhurtz/Beta type weapon but with a spinning weapon instead!

Ik, ik, it's made it's only appearance in 1.5...and there's no wiki article...from memory it had a hammer which utilized a flywheel as weaponry.
EDIT: Forgot to mention earlier that your robot looks so...amazing.

Cheers Badger!

Here is the second of the Construct-O-Bots: Wrecker! Based on a crane truck and a wrecking ball, it actually has a weapon that can swing around (that hasn't AGODed yet). While it is on an E-Tek and was meant to be spun around by the motor. Instead, it now relies on kinetic force where it rams into other robots and hopefully the wrecking ball will do the rest! I plan on making a Mk.2 at some point!

Thanks a bunch!

I forgot to upload my BOTM entry here after the results went up: this is PC_MR01, a robot based on a computer (and Mega Hurtz). Took me a few tries but finally got a design I was happy with. Will definitely make a 2nd version in the future!  :mrgreen:

Thank you!

So I've been working on a 3rd version of my crocodile bot. First version was Crocognaws (seen in Doot's current tournament, RoboGames) then I made a 2nd Gnaws which I wasn't happy with...now here we have Gnaws 3! Basically a giant clamp with a thwacking tail feature used in both previous versions of Gnaws!


Hope you like it! :mrgreen:

Been a while since I posted here...time to change that! You may remember I made a robot called Monstargh (if you watched Doot's RoboGames, it lost very quickly in the SHW bracket)...the hammers weren't much good so I changed the design radically! Here's Monstargh 2!

I have to thank dragonsteincole, he showed me a way to make the front wedge and I feel it really came out well for this robot! :mrgreen:
