Hey roboteers! It's that time of the year where March is just around the corner, college basketball is going strong, and brackets will be all the rage in offices across the U.S.A.! Why not get in on the action in the RA2 community? Recruiting for the first Mech Madness tournament begin right now!


ENTRY DETAILS:



BUILD RULES:



TOURNAMENT RULES:



I'll record fights first, then cut them as necessary, then add in commentary & post-graphics. I worked in local news for 7 years behind-the-scenes, so I'm eager to put some effort into this!


APPLICATIONS RECEIVED (54):

A major thank you and credit to the following builders for their contributions!: 8bean, Badnik96, BDBlu, Bildschirm, Dadddjent, DemonOfTomorrow, evil toaster, Guldenflame, Hoppin, Jamied666, KillerTurtleG, Kris, MrBK445, Mystic, NeonCalypso, Olister92, Plerco, pokebro14, PrimevalMamba, RedAce, Sevalent, TheRoboteer, Thyrus

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.

No weapon spam (mainly no more than 1 Mech disc, 2 Frenzy Hammers, kind of common sense stuff).

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!

Let me know if you received the PM and/or email that I sent. Could be something blocking messages between us, for some reason?

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.
