So I finally got the Mock Heat done and running.  Sorry for taking so long with this.  I had some IRL things again, and I also had to learn how to use Sony Vegas (I've been using Adobe Premiere in my schools for too long, lol).



The editing may look a bit rough, but I might try a different format now having a bit of knowledge on how to use Vegas.  Also, I changed a few rules after I took these precise notes from recording the matches:


Also I'm going to announce that I plan to open signups on January 12, 2018.

Getting a weird amount of TGMRW vibes out of this.
Anyway, everything looks fine to me.
The only really triggering thing to me is how you AIed horizontal spinners.  Maybe I'm just used to them backing up after attacking their opponents from playing with the GRL bots.  'tactic':"Charge",

(Image removed from quote.)

In all fairness, I've had an idea for this for a while now and I planned on hosting an IRL tourney to end on a high note back in March, but Doot made something not only similar, but also completely overshadowed mine in every way.  So I decided to hold back on that idea for a bit, then I decided to do a small mini tourney in Ironforge for the summer just to make sure I still had it in me for tournament hosting.  It wasn't my best as I found myself distracted on other life things and just having other issues with my laptop.  This time, it's going to be a tournament I will put all of my priorities on.  I want to make this the best tournament I will ever host, and one that I will feel proud of completing.  I'm probably not going to start this quite yet, but I'd like to create as many improvements and such before this enters signups.

GENERAL RULES:
- DSL 2.2 CW's
- IRL Building Style
- 36 bots will Compete
- Once bot per member, but if signups aren't completely filled up for a while, then I will extend for another week and allow secondary entrants.
- I'm willing to AI if you are not able to, but don't complain what I AI'd your bot or you will disqualified automatically (It will not change once the SBV thread is up.)

BUILDING RULES:
- DSL 2.2 Bots only
- Cruiserweight bots only (399.1 - 600.0 KG)
- Very Strict IRL Rules Apply
- Walkers/Shufflers will get an additional 200 KG, but that weight must be used for the mechanism itself.
- Multibots will be allowed, but at least weigh at least 35% of the total weight limit of your bot.
- Modular robots will be allowed, but you can enter a maximum of four configurations and you must PM the specified bot type for the configruation to fight.
- The DSC IRL packs will be allowed (Even future releases)
- The following components are allowed, but you can only use one on your entrant: Mechavore disc, Microvore disc, Moros blade, Frenzy hammer, Minion disc, Overkill blade
- You can send your own component reskins as long as you provide the necessary files to me when you enter and the ONLY change to said component(s) is the skin.
- The only cheatbot2 Components allowed are the Flatmotor, Slow Flatmotor, and the Overkill Motor.  Everything else is banned.
- BFE, AAM, OBJRA2 and Every Sergepatcher Component Freedom tool, except for the weight bonus one, will be allowed for IRL purposes
- You can make an update once and only once (The only exception if it's a skin change or anything extremely minor), but I will stop allowing updates when signups close.
- If an updated bot is illegal, then I will use the original bot you sent me.

BATTLE RULES:
- 3 minute length matches
- The Robot Wars 2016 Arena (Reskinned) will be used for this tournament
- In the event of Secondary Signups, then I will make sure both of your bots do NOT compete in the same heat
- Any multibots competing must have at least 55% of the total robot to be considered eliminated, and any melees they fight in will have the heaviest robot compete.
- Only VERY minor havoks will be shown in a main heat video, and bots will not be penalized for havoks.  However if a robot havoks more than enough times or just straight up crashes my game too often, then the robot will be eliminated and will be referenced to "technical issues"  (If the builder would like to see a video of the havoks for proof, then I will upload said video, and for the record, I'd say 20 havoks or crashes would be a tipping point for me to just forfeit it and move on).
- There will be six heats, with three 1-on-1 qualifiers per heat.  Winners will advance to the semi-finals, but losers will go on to a redemption rumble for a second chance.  The winner of that will earn a spot back in the competition, and follow a traditional bracket style for the heat.  The Grand Final will also follow the same format.
- I will be judging every bot fairly on a spectrum of 45 points from three categories: Aggression, Damage, and Control (in other words, Classic Battlebots style judging).

Arena Skin:

My Entry:

Prizes:
First place will earn the AI of all the entrants, the arena, and a Robots Designs folder with all the entries to play around with, including the rejected ones.

tl;dr Dutch Robot Wars but with Cruiserweights

Thanks mate.  And Signups are officially open!

You can send in one bot for now, but if things are going rather slowly with spots to fill, then you can send in a second bot.

Speaking of entrants, I have received Hoppin's and pokebro's bots.  I will look at them once I get back from work.

I have received an entrant Olister92, Thrackerzod, GroudonRobotWars, and 8bean.  I also received an update from Hoppin.

Will look at everything very shortly.

Edit:  Hoppin's update, Olister92, GroudonRobotWars are all accepted.

Thrackerzod is  rejected due to it not showing controlled movement.

8bean is rejected due to a lack of a weapon belt support and has slight weapon spam.

Will contact both shortly.

Literally 99% of the bots I build are not flippers, so it's gonna be interesting to see how I do. And its a front-hinge flipper on top of that, so it's either gonna be a great design or fail horribly.
