Holy moly Corrosion is seeded despite going 2-2?  :really_makes_you_think:

Better work on a sequel that's actually decent then.

EDIT: this is assuming I can enter Corrosion 2/3 in it's place?

Is there a rule as to how many Typhoons can be used on flippers and as parts of aesthetic features?

T...Typhoons on FLIPPERS?
 

I mean...no limit with either of those, just don't go overboard I guess. It's a case by case thing really.

So the way the Typhoons are used in this bot are legal?
 

Would I need to switch out the top armour at the sides of the flipper for panels for it to be legal?

Surely you could use triangle armour plates instead?

9.    Typhoon teeth are now limited. 2 Large OR 4 Small for a Vert, 4 Large OR 6 Small for a Horizontal and typhoons on drums will probably not be accepted.

Also added some more info to Rule 15 and added Rule 21.
15.     Configurations Bots are limited to three different weapon systems. The main chassis of the robot (armor, drive system, etc.) should not change between configurations. You are allowed to use weapons that your other entries use but each config must be a different weapon type. You MUST also include a list of what config to use for certain robot types!
21.     Wedges/Wedgelets attached to Axle Mounts/Free Hinges are banned due to messing with physics. These axles/hinge types are fine for decoration however!

I'll have a look to see which works better.

what
Axle mounts or free hinges with a flipper attached can clip under the floor, or if you're unlucky havoc violently. Like, one second it's fine, then suddenly it starts spinning like crazy.

If I restricted everything then it'd be a bit silly: while other parts don't have restrictions doesn't mean that I won't allow robots to spam them (like a certain 9 Gothic Axe Sit N Spin robot ;)) and Minion/Mini-Minion Discs are no-go parts too! The ruleset was discussed with a variety of people so I'm hoping it holds up decently! :mrgreen:
