Wow, actually building in RA2  :really_makes_you_think:


Thought process was "if Hypothermia was decent"


Ugly DSL-S bot with an uglier splash. Probably sent the wrong file of this to the Challenge Belt

on that flipper i'm not fond of outside motors like that. if something gets under you they'll rip some of the wheels off and suddenly you're even more screwed than the usual.

Also a secondary wedge system is pointless if it's shorter than the flippers. you're gonna get outwedged frequently and on a flipper, the wedge is your life.

Copals are a waste too. Just use 4WD NPC Fasts. Or 4 double magmotors, since they're very narrow but long so you can put the 3 bursts in between them, and the batteries behind them in the space created by the somewhat long 2 double magmotors. Also using different wheel sizes is gonna make your wheel base uneven if you aren't careful. I would advise against it.

I'd just put all drive and flippers into the chassis tbh.

It's like a cross between Mega Tento and Kraken.  Mega Krako?  I like it.

For Freez's VG Showdown. Pretty happy with it although it'll lose all of its matches thanks to the crashing rule


MM2 roster. 2 spinner killers to try to counter the infinite horizontals that'll be entered. Emphasis on "try"


Other MM2 roster. Taipan is the only returnee from Season 1, everyone else is new

Sharpness V is an interesting design. It will be fun to see how well that wooden pick does in combat.
The other things that caught my eye was the tall af mech madness VS in the bottom left and the tracked hammerbot. You can never go wrong with tracks

I keep forgetting to post my sh** here, whoops

Ok Mecha Rampage thing that I'm pretty happy with, I'm not sure how I got everything in the weight limit. 6Mag Weapon motor actually sealed inside the weapon, everything's Aluminum

Made some big revisions to Solar Storm after its good run in Deathmatch 2, because it definitely still had weaknesses. Longer wedge to more efficiently kill horizontals, ditched the wheel guards because lol what did they do in the first place, and more battery life (which was v2's biggest weakness imo, I'm like 99% sure it conked out at the end of the Pyrothere fight).

HW thing I made for Nature Wars because I forgot it was CW  :gunz:. Really unhappy with the """skin""", but I'm not sure what to add to it that wouldn't look weird

I keep forgetting to post stuff here


Woke CW clusterbot of La Va (the big one) and mr. brightside (the small one). Was seriously contemplating entering this into DM3 so it could technically be the reigning champion, but I'd rather actually be a little more serious. Alu10 on La Va with 4x NPC Fast drive and Alu3 with 2 astros on mr brightside.


4x NPC drive LW that I forgot to post here. Did pretty bad in Wen's Double Man, but I'm just happy with having fitted 4 fasts into a LW


sh**ty CW I made a little while back that I never showed anywhere. Inspired by the equally sh**ty Maximum Impact, a Battlebot Orc covered on an episode of Mystrsyko's podcast

You guys were obviously in so much awe of those bots that you forgot to comment on them, but I'll let it slide dw

Any-who, here's a probably final OW3 roster

Tried making an extenderbot that wasn't a flat box/rectangle. Also: a transparent background! Took long enough

Looks good. What is the bot made of material wise, like is it all alu or not? Also, are those short or medium VDMA's

Also, what is the drive and battery on that bot too?

Name stealing rear hinge flipper. 2x NPC fasts aren't that good, and it has pretty sh** wedges, but I'm mostly happy with how this turned out. Steel front and medium VDMAs


4x NPC fast Breaker Box servo thingy. All alu but the wedge is steel

Its supposed to be like a race car wing but I didn't do it very well

It works pretty well to stop the other robot from going up and over the wedge tho
