Okay. I see a lot of NOs, but I'm getting plenty of WS from members. This tournament is a-go.
i think that isn’t how the system works

IRL mostly.
It can’t be IRL “mostly”, it MUST be one or the other.

the reason why there is no interest in this tournament is no one wants to build spinners with no control. no one else really thinks they are fun to build and they are not effective designs.

Not effective? in control, yes. In damage? no.
Coincidence? I do not think so.
Mystery? Maybe.
Hotel? Trivago.

I mean mostly in rumbles- ever had a bot attack your back side...and you're busy fighting a bot in front of you? I did that to Seism 13. I killed it in two hits.
lol seism 13 is definitely dsl AND irl

your argument doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

truth be told i think we can't argue anymore with redalert because he is just too good to listen to all of us

EDIT: Anyways BOT, TR you have done a solid job on that bot. How did you get a light angle like that on your pictures?

Knowing my first time running this, expect a lot of mistakes from me.

Good luck to me.
Don’t worry my man, I’m sure you’ve completely got this under control.

if you've ever heard of something known as an english class i highly recommend you take it next time before posting

This isn’t English class- it’s BOTM.
Back on topic, please.
What I meant is that his posts need actual clarity next time.
Now BOT.

Why dont you actually post the pic of a bot instead of announcing it like that?
Most of the time youll doublepost
Here we go again
I have my reasons...
Sorry if I seem harsh, but your reason is that you don’t have the common sense to realize that you can edit a post.

Honestly, blue snappers aren't bad for popup wedges. If you angle them just right, they can be seriously effective. The shorter the setup, the better.

I'd recommend DDTs, because they pin wedges down with excessive force.
a ddt wedge is beyond a a waste of weight at lw level

you need to stop giving bad advice to people who are more experienced than you

I know you're all more experienced than I am.
...but I learned this from trying it out in RA2.
"I know you all are more knowledgeable than me!
However I don't care as I did these things myself!"
I mean, seriously. Stop being so headstrong and listen to all of us for once.

Could you please stop making "tutorials" for building robots that are completely ineffective in real combat and would not be accepted by any host with an idea of what controlled movement is? This idea has existed since 2004, and it hasn't been a good idea since. Please, stop and focus on building and improving designs that make sense and work well.

Also, PLEASE take advice from members that know what they are doing to improve. I don't want to see someone with a decent amount of ability become a meme the likes of Superbot. Don't take this as me trying to insult you or wandering spinners or whatever. I'm just trying to get you to understand where we are all coming from.

Oh, THERE not ineffectant. One alone killed 2 HW popups once...

Yeah, and talking about the building this bot for fun by Redalert and nobody else building it part, want to ask this to all Unrealistic and Standard players as I don't know much about the meta. Do you not like building WS for fun because both metas are primarily about competitiveness, efficiency, and effectivity, rather than fun (and that the kind of fun said by Redalert in general are applicable to the IRL meta instead, even if WS are probably un-IRL too)?

What's the "Fun" part in RA2 when you can't play with science? GTM is about sharing designs to get others' thoughts and comments. Not to mention, inspire.
By criticizing this (no offense), you're making me want to quit GTM. Do you even want that?
I'm just trying to expand GTM and contribute to it, so GTM isn't jeopardized.
There's a difference between contributing to the forums and making pointless threads like this. Yes we do like it for you sharing your designs and having a bit of fun in the process. But just think about it; What is the likelihood of someone following this tutorial to build an bot design that's not even tournament legal?

When making tutorials, there's need to be a common problem to solve for someone who's playing the game for the first time or someone who needs to refresh their knowledge, for example if someone doesn't know how to stack batteries, doesn't understand OBJRA2 or gets confused around snapper loading etc. Then a need for tutorial arises and is created by someone with the knowledge as a solution to help those struggling. By the end of the tutorial, the player now knows how to solve their problem. Here you got a tutorial from some random experiment that most users wouldn't understand or have no need for building a bot type that's not tournament legal and/or ineffective in combat. There is no problem here, only a solution without reason. We get that you're trying to contribute, but this is starting to feel like the time when you spammed the wiki with a heap load of unnecessary edits which mostly contained false information, personal opinions or contained pointless links to an "notable" AI pack. Just, think twice before you make a tutorials and see if anyone else needs it before yourself.
Wow, I really agree with Dark-Al for once.

this is what happens when you don't take your daily dosage of ritalin kids

Are you basically saying no collision meshes or stacks in your bot for this tournament?
No stacking, bfe and other crap. As for colision maeshes... the hell are you talking about?

Collision meshes like spinners' weapons intersecting batteries when they rotate.
example collision mesh- spikes penetrating skirts

example of non-collision mesh- spinner not hitting any components.
you do realize stock and ironforge are different
