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.

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:

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."

Coloured Typhoons/Beaters
Coloured Bars
Coloured Frenzy Hammers
Coloured Slippers
Fixed NPCs
Badnik's Disc Covers

Woah... Fixed batteries, fixed Betas, NPC's?

They are. But the fixes are just attachment point fix. Basically for the beta AP, the fix centers it. While for batteries, it just add more AP. And you can get them all on the Custom Components section of Downloads (there's also the colored wheels and casters, but I think it's not used for this tourney yet)

Stop crying waahdnik, without that rule you'd be whinging about stuff spamming typhoons out the ass like Tilted Evo 2. There are plenty of components in the game, if you want to only use the most effective come play DSL-S like a proper boomer.

People now use RA2CF when building, thus rendering glitches useless. Also, battery stacking is illegal as it's DSL-IRL, and Rupt glitch and EFFe I think are illegal too as it unfairly overpower flipper and allow illegal stacking if used on weapon respectively. I suggest you read the DSL-IRL guide on the tutorial to know more about the meta, as well as get DSL 2.2 Complete Edition, as this is what people use now

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!

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.

Typhoon teeth: 2 Large OR 4 Small for a Vert, 4 Large OR 6 Small for a Horizontal, no typhoon drums.

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!

My days of jewing IRL tournaments with outrageously dumb sh** has passed, at least I think so. I would've figured out some other gay loophole instead of watering down one of my previous abominations, however. Probably a buttload of frenzy hammers in some way tbh, or a vlad spam poker

Paladin 3 with Frenzy hammer spinners.

y'know Badger, not every vert has to be a sloppy meta device, but who am I to mention meta devices to the creator of Dragon Rising, Paladin, Molerat, and Pure Abuse?

Still, nice to know that there are people in GTM that are willing to discredit me and any advice I have for other builders, gives me motivation to build more crap and finally be in a place where bastards like you accept me as a competent builder

OW4 will also have no wedgelet damage due to feedback.

I'm happy you asked! After testing, the IRL Drums built by Bild seem to be good with no errors so they are a late but awesome addition to the OW4 series!

Right folks: been a busy day of looking through entries and I'm still not done yet! People who have sent their entries through GTM: do not panic, I will be looking at your entries first thing in the morning! Lots of great entries so far though: I'm hoping by this standard, OW4 will be the best series yet. :heart_smiley:

We've had a lot of awesome entries so far but if you still haven't sent your bots or filled up your teams...you may want to look into doing so!

Due to the number of people entering, qualifiers MAY change in format but I'll let you know as soon as I've figured it out with the team.

Post by: TheOrcCorp on August 07, 2019, 06:25:34 PM
SIGN-UPS HAVE CLOSED! Thanks everyone for entering. Due to the sheer numbers, we've had to change up qualifying.

Qualifying will use the 51 bots in qualifying and 29 robots from reserves.
Robots will fight in 1v1s in a bracket format.
Round of 80 -> Round of 40.
If you win your Round of 40 fight, you're into the main competition.
Reserves picked will be announced soon so stay tuned.

Post by: TheOrcCorp on February 21, 2020, 04:39:41 PM
Episode 13 of OW4 is here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEq9_KwR9DE

IMPORTANT, DESPERADO IS NOW OPEN!
1. 16 Bot Tournament, single knockout. Winner gets a place in Round of 32.
2. Desperado WON'T be first come, first serve and would instead be like BB where teams sign themselves up and we as the committee pick what robots we believe deserve the slots/got unlucky/will look good
3. Robots 3-0 would not be accepted, spots are going to bots who actually need them.
4. If a robot loses here, it's out of OW4 for good: EVEN if it ends up 3-1/2-2 in 4th Fight Fever.

Keep all this in mind and I wish you all the best of luck if you decide to enter!:dance:Message me with your robot if you decide to be brave enough.

Sign-ups end at 10PM GMT on February 28th 2020!

I've seen some stuff on discord about OW5 being invite only for the main competition and then side events being open for everyone.  Will a new blood be one of those side events?  If so, that's one I'd rly love to have a go at entering, since I failed to get a bot completed in time for fresh metal.

Short answer: yes, main comp will be invitiational. I do plan on making side events open for others but details on what events and such will be revealed closer to the time. Still gotta finish this tournament after all ;)
