There are a few significant changes incoming, so please take some time and read the modified rules below. I'm looking forward to an even longer season, featuring many more of your unique and impressive creations!

Can't wait to see what you've got planned, guys!

Quick note: I made a couple of clarifications in the OP. I don't know why I cut it out when transferring my original comment to this topic, but obviously there are no re-entries from other tournaments allowed. These are all meant to be fresh designs.

Additionally, I made a quick clarification that only 1 part in a 2-part multibot needs to follow the Active Weapon rule, as it applies to the total entry.

Finally, this should go without saying, but keep all bot names pronounceable and realistic as well. I'll reject any "Carolina Campos etc..." situations or anything that would make a mother blush. I'm not a prude and I don't mind a little off-color humor, but trying to keep it somewhat professional on that front, since I'll be doing VOs.

Just a friendly heads up, you're allowed to say who entered what into personal tournaments now.

Unless you want to keep it a secret, which is also 100% fine.

Cheers, this is awesome to hear! I made a general credits section at the bottom of the OP for now, then will credit each individual bot when applications end and selection day rolls around.

Sidenote: 14 bot applications on the first day alone was above and beyond what I expected. A big thank you to all those who have sent your impressive creations so far. May many more be on their way!

Post by: FaceBagman on February 17, 2018, 06:24:29 PM
44 applications within the week, this is really encouraging folks! We should hit 64 and beyond easily. :)

As is evident in the rules, some small modifications were made to address some personal concerns and questions that were raised in discussions about potential entries. If anyone was building thoughtfully and within the specifications/spirit of the rules already, these changes should not concern you.

Reskins and re-sends of existing entries are fine by me up until the March 13th deadline, as long as no changes are made to give your entry a competitive advantage over another bot in the tournament.

Post by: BDBlu on February 26, 2018, 09:22:28 PM
Due to the unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to reskin my bot.  If you want it to be that ugly color is fine by me, but if you want to pull it, I'll be ok with that.  Going through some emotional issues and lost complete focus.

Totally understand that situation, man. Take the time you need for you and don't worry! I'll keep you in for now and worst case scenario, try to give it a skin and message you to confirm it's ok.

For anyone else interested, we're now only a few entries away from meeting my 64 robot goal! Of course, I'll accept more entries after the first 64 come in, but only the most impressive 64 will be selected for the main tournament. Since I'm off from now until Friday afternoon, the next couple of days would be the perfect time to send me entries! You all have until the 13th of March though. :)

For anyone else interested in sending robots for Mech Madness:

The deadline is officially one week (and a few hours) away.

With 61 applicants as of now, I'm only 3 robots away from meeting my personal goal of 64 unique robot entries. That being said, the bar is always set higher, and I would love to have so many applicants to choose from that only the best of the best make the final field. Don't hesitate to submit your builds, even as the total number of entries surpasses 64!
Title: Re: (FaceBagman's) Mech Madness! APPLICATION DEADLINE: MIDNIGHT, MARCH 13th
Post by: FaceBagman on March 12, 2018, 11:09:51 AM
I'll be setting up the bracket & selection show late tonight when I return from work. Tomorrow is the big bracket reveal!

A reminder that this is the final day I'm accepting applicants for the tournament. The application process ends tonight at midnight, Eastern time. Any and all bots that fit the guidelines are welcome before then!

I had hoped and promised to have a smooth tournament and not have any situations like this, but I need to announce that SThreeD is disqualified. I take full responsibility for not noticing a motor and battery intersection when I first received the robot, and it even took a couple of in-depth looks with help in the garage for me to finally catch it. Were it fixable, I would personally fix it. I apologize to TGM and especially apologize to the couple of robots that were left out of the main bracket who could have gotten a chance instead. Going to revert the old decision and add an addendum in the next video.

IMPORTANT - KO, in this tournament, is defined as when a robot loses directional movement or when any part of that robot touches the Out-of-Bounds area. So if one side of drive is disabled (all wheels/treads removed from left or right side), the robot will be considered KOed at the point it was immobilized.

I'll be accepting suggestions for rumbles and grudge matches via PM, and have a few planned myself. That exhibition video will be coming within the week.

Also, nominate your favorite bot in the competition, most destructive bot, most creative bot, 3 favorite Main Bracket matches, and 3 favorite Redemption Bracket matches. No voting for your own robots in the first 3 categories!

The response to Season 2's signups has been overwhelming! Thank you all so much for the submissions thus far. Below is an ongoing list of robots participating. I'll designate whether they've been accepted or are still under review as I go:

Just a reminder that we are 20 days away from the conclusion of signups for Season 2!

October 28th will be the deadline. With 107 entries already, this is going to be an epic event. Over on Discord, some formatting spoilers have been teased, including the robots participating in one conference; I'm very much looking forward to the full reveal once every bot has been accepted and sorted into their conference. Expect the full conference reveals in the 3 days following the conclusion of signups, and the first batch of fights during the first weekend of November.

Thank you all again for the participation thus far, it's very encouraging to see this event continue to grow.

You guys are right, thanks for calming me down. Especially Hoppin in particular, I was just worried I had something to do with all these things happening due to a string of coincidences. I'm good now though and cannot wait to see my bot breakdance out of control whenever it hits something. Hopefully I get a control bot for one of my four fights.

Thank TheOrcCorp, he alerted me to this as soon as he saw it.
