I wish you the best of luck with this. I won't be entering as I retired from RA2.
On a sidenote: I'm working on a real live version of a former OW bot of mine in the formof Ryu/Ryu Kishin (without the spinners) for a potential entry in Bugglebots series 3.

YESSSSS! The new First Blood finally has a chance to prove itself. Probably gonna make two new bots for the other slots though. Format looks really cool and ambitious. Can't wait.

Awesome! I might enter. Also, do verticle and horizontal spinners count as seperate weapons?
I like Robots and IRL Packs (DSL to be precise).

Sorry to mess you around man, had to keep up the illusion for a little while longer! XD

Yep, that should be fine!

Nope: verts/horiz/drums all count as a spinner, same with front/rear hinge flippers :p

Understood, thank you for your awesome contribution to OW: your bots made for some great entries! Can't wait to see Ryu Kishin IRL! :heart_smiley:

As for everyone else, glad people are hyped: I'm looking forward to hosting again!

I think I'll brush up on my DSL building, this looks pretty good. I have 1 or 2 designs which might do reasonably well if refined a little. (By that I mean a lot, my building skills are mediocre at best)

i thought you quit

probably will enter wraith and only wraith, because itll inevitably get shuffled out if i enter anything alongside it and its the one i want to actually see fight

You can lock in Wraith and send in another bot, though Wraith will likely need to swap from typhoons to be legal.
"9.    Typhoon teeth are now limited. 2 Large 4 Small for a Vert, 4 Large 6 Small for a Horizontal and typhoons on drums will probably not be accepted."
