Wait, the extender "piston" for the flipper can clip the beta burst? That's still IRL?
I mean it's purely a visual thing to make the bot look better. Can easily be ditched if someone has an issue with it.

But then having no piston may be less realistic if anything so swings and roundabouts innit

I've never seen anyone have an issue with this type of thing for what it's worth
That makes sense. Can I get away with stuff like that when entering IRL tournaments?
Depends what it is really. A ram for a flipper like this I'm sure you would, but other stuff maybe not. All depends on the circumstances

Another older bot updated. I was quite proud of this one at the time again, but it definitely didn't age that well. I'm really happy with what I've been able to do with it though. The theme was vaguely Tron related and I think I accomplished something that captures that whole aesthetic this time. It prolly doesn't have enough battery life but I'm not that fussed tbh.

If there's ever another tournament like Forgotten Worlds where you enter 2 bots yourself to make up a tag team, then this and Monolith could make a neat themed team.

Small update. Reprofiled the front wedge to look better and also gave it more batts so it doesn't run out in like 10 seconds now. I also updated it since this screenshot to get rid of that little bit of the black panel that's poking out of the front of the flipper, but I can't be bothered taking another screenshot to show that.

No way this thing will be combat effective as it's light on armour, drive and weaponry, but I'm really happy with how it looks

Another bot updated. Cicada this time. I know quite a lot of people like this one, and I do too, but it needed some changes. First off I cleaned up the panel work. Stuff fits together much better now. One thing I never liked about the previous iteration was the big dumb granny wheels it needed to run inverted, so I've ditched invertability completely in favour of a srimech powered by a slow mag (the green bit on top is the srimech. Took some fiddling to get the whole thing in weight but I got there by optimising my extenderwork. I plan to skin the microvore at some point too to match the theme better but for now I'm happy with this thing.

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.

Everyone's posting their OW5 lineups so I guess I'll post mine. Nothing really new or exciting but most of my bots have been updated both visually and performatively since you last saw them.

 


Missing Link: Has been cleaned up a fair bit since you last saw it but is otherwise the same. This is my reserve entry so you may not be seeing it in the main series

Claymore (Seeded 16th): Pretty major rebuilds since it was showcased here. Way, way cleaner with the panels all lining up properly at last. Finally it looks better than Sabre (the bot it replaced). I also skinned up a couple of panels just to make it look a little nicer too. Hoping this one does well.

Bocuma (Seeded 3rd): Has actually seen a near total rebuild to bring it in weight with the 2.4 component changes but as always it retains the same design. There has been one change in terms of competitiveness though: it now has a Dantomkia-style "kickstand" bit at the back to try and keep the wedge on the floor as one of Bocuma's biggest weaknesses was how it would wheelie when hitting an opponent allowing them to get under what is otherwise a near-peerless wedge.

Speed Demon VII: My lock in for the series. Wedgelets are spaced further apart than when I last showcased this as a result of experience in PWS (which resulted in it eventually winning the final installment of that tournament). 2.4 freed up some weight which I've used to both substantially buff the armour, and also to make the transition of the wedge/anti spinner pieces into the chassis cleaner.

Phosphor: My qualifier bot. Has also seen a total rebuild as a result of being nearly 200kg overweigh in 2.4. By building much smarter I was able to get it in weight without really sacrificing looks at all. Hammerbots are never great in RA2 but as hammerbots go this is a pretty decent one, and managed to push Greedee pretty hard in its last tournament appearance which hopefully bodes well.

Quick rebuild of an old blue flipper to shake off the rust of not building for 3 months.

Probably gonna skin up the flipper panels and chuck it in AC3 depending how many entries each person gets

 


One day I'll make a britflipper that can actually win fights

I've got a big notepad doc of just random cool words that I think would work as bot names

Well it's a new year so I better get my "1 middleweight per year" quota out of the way

A new MW version of Claymore/Sabre. Actually learned some interesting new weight management techniques that should be useful on my HWs and CWs as well doing it so it was actually worth the effort, and it's certainly an improvement over the old MW Sabre/Claymore that I built back in like 2018. If ever there's a tournament calling for MWs, CWs and HWs or something then this will likely be my entry.

Guess I'll show my WWRA2 bot now. Fairly conventional design wise because I wanted to try to make this thing legitimately competitive (at least as axes can be), though I did make an effort to give it some shape via the rear end and the hammer support setup.

 


When Super posted his hammer a while back I realised we'd gone for pretty much the exact same philosophy so it'll be interesting to see what the other two hammer builders have done

I really like the shape of it, not much else to say really. Just really top quality work, as always. If I were to nitpick, the front wedge looks a tiny bit tacked on and it would be nice if the yellow top panels were flush with the chassis outline
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Yeah I totally see what you mean. I actually did a complete ground up rebuild once already, as in the initial build the top panel was even less flush than it is here. I've already sent cringey 7 ****in updates for this thing and today's the last day of signups so I don't wanna pester him again with another update, but I will absolutely have a stab at getting the top panels fully flush in the near future because you're definitely right that them sticking up a bit isn't great.

Actually **** that lol. He dealt with 7 updates already what's 1 more.

Top panel made flush and swapped to grippier pirellis rather than miniwheels through better weight management

The next PWT leg is in the combat arena which means Monsieur Grand Flipper Bleu will have to take a timeout due to the lack of pits and OOTA zones. As a result I decided I'd build a new HS since I don't normally do those. Went for a kinda Wild Thing style thing with some influences from Skorpios too, though I did aim to make it pretty distinct from either of those. Obviously with only 2 small typhoons it's not gonna be particularly competitive, but it looks pretty decent I think which is IMO a rarity for HSes, and you get 3 bots in PWT anyway so my other 2 entries can do the heavy lifting competitiveness wise.
