Seeing stuff actually get rejected for sh** like this is pretty refreshing NGL. If tourney hosts stop accepting borderline sh**, build standards are naturally gonna go up as a result.
Yeah, and in this case, I've also had to reject numerous bots for breaking realistic rules so I'm glad that at least some new people are starting to catch on to how IRL can work in the end.  Other than that, I'm not picky on how well built or cool it is.  Improvements are bound to happen, but in due time I always tell myself.

I don't know how anyone expected King Chrome to pass muster with this clipping...

Also, 9 slots left!
This can't possibly go horribly wrong.

Do you have the battery AP fix/mod? Most people use it when building, and the weird battery placement could possibly be due to you not having it? There's also a similar fix/mod for the NPC motors which is generally accepted into tournaments as well.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Already got both. Had a derp moment regarding Kix's entry, since he used it.

Fair enough, that is a very weird place to put a battery which is why I asked.

Yeah I think this could be the issue. It looks to me as though there'd still be some minor clipping even if he's using a modified Beta AP compared to what you're using, but it would be a lot less egregious than this.

Just another argument for people to stop releasing these single-component modpacks that only serve to make tournament hosts' lives difficult tbh  heck

Well I'm glad Tired Iron got in.  I honestly don't expect to win this tbh as I haven't entered a tourney since 2016.  For me, this is a way to help shake the cobwebs out, have some mindless fun, and use this experience to help with future designs.

Almost missed this one on Disprezzata, but I saw it in the end.

Also, 9 slots remain before rejects start getting pushed out. If you're in the red, better hurry up and fix it.

Probably some of his friends on discord.

Yeah. They came from the OW (now RA2T) Discord, as well as the MS2 (Mystrysko) Discord IIRC. And few others seem to be from GTM but not that active

Re: Fresh Metal (Second Signups Now Open!)

Due to there being only 6 slots remaining before rejected bots start getting thrown out and a lack of response from some of those rejects, I'm opening up signups for second entries per builder. Same build rules apply.

F for the five people who failed to get in

But I also love how you are able to invite former OW competitors, and Robottal Wars guys (except Mystrysko) like Strudel, SamElliott, etc to here, as IIRC, they normally don't join RA2 tournies

Looking forward to seeing how I do in this. Going off the bots I know, Claymore should be in with a decent shot, though Zayzo is clearly the favourite to win for me.

If Cosecha even so much as puts up a fight in one of its matches I'll be satisfied, let alone if it wins one.
