FOTEPX's IronForge Showcase
« on: August 26, 2014, 01:49:15 PM »


An experimental bot I made that I don't think falls into any bot category. Basically, it lifts itself above the competition using the 4 servo pistons, then shoots down with the two center pistons, directly onto the chassis of the opponent.

If this has been made before, then cool. If not, I think this bot type should be called "Dropper".

Does it work? I tried making those a long time ago but the servos weren't strong enough to lift the chassis

In Ironforge, yes. It also works for MW's and HW's by daisy-chaining servo's.

I kinda did a similar concept in stock, just not a poker but a bottom spinner. Still pretty cool concept.

You could do that, but in IronForge pokers are OP, so it's best to rely on pokers.

Can somebody make an IronForge Trinity spinner, plz?  :gunz:

A combination of Craaig and Lemonism's axebots. Is piss-poor at fighting, but most of my bots are for looks anyways.

I would say I like it but it's literally a clone mash-up of the 2. Get creative, yo.

While Tibsy is a hell of a builder, he doesnt yet have a scale of how good bots are. He said my bots were amazing. He said he was losing his touch.

I have low-confidence with my bots and I like to assume I have a scale of how good or bad bots can be.
And I'm just generally polite ^^

Yes, you are polite, but your scale goes from amazing to amazing.
And despite me knowing this is about as helpful to a person as saying to someone who has been shot "Stop bleeding you wuss" but
YOUR BOTS ARE SIMPLY AMAZING! STOP THINKING THEY ARE NOT!

Alrighty, then.



Name came from the face that it isn't the no man's land between MW's and HW's. I'll remake it later into a MW.

Yeah, there was inspiration from Tibsy's bot. However, I think I made enough differences to make it it's own thing.

Seriously though, that's one deadly bot. Shame they're different weight classes, Cheddar Shreddar & ASOPDC would be a perfect tag team lol!

Isn't it actually a SHW at this point with Ironforge weights?
