*Insert snark over lack of feedback*



Two very similar ideas, with different executions. Getting a group ready for RG2 has been a bit hard in the lower weight classes!

Neon's summed up my comments. Tho I'd also say drop the chassis height using bfe and switching to astros

I hate how this thing looks (its a box), but whateverrrr. Third revision of a robot that's withdrawn from two tournaments  :dumb). Its a CW this time, but can only be entered if there's a weight bonus.

And I forgot to add the weight: 799.9

I'd probs just go 2wd with some wheels. Cuz that wouldn't give any weight bonus as it's a crawler. Then put some wheelguards on

Tunguskant and Provider seem like just basic overhead spinners.  A different chassis shape might make them more appealing.
Does Excessive Vitriol have any teeth on its drum?  If not, it's going nowhere.
Seyfert's wedge is way too steep.  The robot is gonna get slammed and do a sick front flip before getting smash.  Side note:  I'm not sure that's an adequate support on the left side of its disc.
The cruiserweights look decent if their weapon is what I'm assuming they are. FHF
Babaulty is sweet though, but it looks like it have the same weapon support problem as Seyfert.
The SHW Clusters both look rather bland, plus I don't think they'll be allowed as the rules state defensive weaponry isn't allowed.

Tunguskant and Provider are pretty boring shaped, I agree with you on that.

EV has 4 small beaters.

Can confirm, Seyfert faceplants too much. Basically everything is getting revised soon.

The cruiserweights are in fact Front Hingers. They did ok in Deathmatch!

I assume you mean the beater bars? I'm not sure if that counts as defensive weaponry, but if they do, I'l certainly change that! They look bland, but the idea is to just keep ramming their opponents into walls, so hopefully they wont be too boring in practice  :mrgreen:

I've been on a bit of a bot building spree, thanks to having actual spare time  ;). Started as an Ironside clone, but then ended up becoming more unique. Pl10, 599 lb.

Another bot I whipped up surprisingly quickly. Sort of a hybrid between Overhaul 2 and Sawblaze. Struggles with selfrighting and just about everything, really. Its a prettygood HS killer, though! Pl10, Steel Front, NPC Fasts, Wide Medium Burst, 2 red batts

It's been a while! We weren't even on the 1st page of DSL Showcases for a while! Kind of lost motivation to post here, but I've still been building stuff! Here's an modification to Taipan for Orc's Wars: International Wars. Say hello to Taipan's brother, Cardinal of Sin (Vatican City). Changed to steel sides, rather than aluminum, made it invertible, removed the Alu sheets on the bottom since they hindered movement on the RW Arena, and made the front forks hinged rather than on a basplate anchor. Also, the most important change of all: the snake has a pope hat!

The front assembly feels very DSL-S, with the wedge prongs just sticking out and nothing being underneath or around the wedges to support thrm. Have a look at how builders like Thyrus or cephalopod do IRL flippers. If you look at the flipper below by cephalopod, you can see how it doesn't look like it has bits hanging off the front, rather it looks like a single contained unit.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**
