I love that this tournament is called "Everything is too OP" and yet robots can get turned away for being too OP  heck

Nah, seriously, this sounds like fun. Reminds me of when I used to do Grand Prix 4 crash compilations and turn the damage multiplier up so cars fell apart at the slightest touch. Don't suppose you could give us a rundown of how much each motor gets buffed by the patch?

I love it. Throw that in for Banter Wars 3.5.

I finally gave this album a listen after playing "Chinese Burn" on repeat for the last ten months (it's the song my personal text comes from). IT'S SUCH A GOOD ALBUM. "Forgotten Sanity" in particular, I'm going to be repeating for the next ten months.


Yep. Still listening to "Forgotten Sanity" and "Chinese Burn" on repeat. Also this:

Wow, 8bean's bot is woke

Also you've got some "invalid attachments" at the end of the splashes

Fun fact: Challenger 1 had a Heavy Spike mounted on a burst piston, so it looked like it was firing shells out of the turret. I gave Challenger 2 a flamethrower instead in the hope that the flames would spread out and actually hit things, and because I honestly just like flamethrowers  heck

I like the way the teeth are done but overall it's still pretty bland. Someone really needs to come out with a reskinned shell spinner pack.

Depending on what the extenders are made from, you should have enough weight to move the motors up slightly and put some bigger wheels on it. It'll increase the bot's speed, and reduce the risk of a gut-ripping VS sniping one of those wheels off.

For those who aren't in the Orc's Wars Discord, last weekend there was a Parsec tourney where you had one hour to build a replica of a given RW competitor, and then they all duked it out. I was given Behemoth, and ended up with this:

 


It wasn't that good, as the lifting plough was too heavy, but I thought, "Hey, that's a pretty cool shape, I could do somethin with that". And for those who aren't in the Banter Wars Discordwe really need that centralised tournament hub from the "what to do with GTM" discussion, it was announced yesterday that BW 3.5 is going to be a DSL tourney. So I rebuilt an old experiment from late 2017, using Beermoth's shape as inspiration, and behold:

 


It's underweight and practically weaponless but it's suitably "banterous" and I love it tbh

Switched the batteries from blacks to reds, shrank the disc (and guard) down slightly, and dropped a couple of panels at the back from Steel to Ti. Rather than try and fit a 6-mag in, I decided to use the leftover weight to put some panels on the bottom on the wheel pods, as it didn't have any before and it felt wrong:

 


I also used BFE to hide the extender that the Tornado Mer is attached to: it's inside the chassis now instead of poking awkwardly out of the top. It wasn't visible in battle anyway, but it was visible in the Bot Lab and it annoyed the hell out of me.

Also, there are extender anchors that weigh 4 kgs. Try using those to save a little space
You're actually better off using a 10cm Square Aluminium Extender. It has the same shape and attachment points, but it only weighs 0.8kg, and since anything attached to the baseplate is invincible, the hit points really don't matter. I've found them very useful for shaving weight off older builds.

TBH, I preferred the previous colour scheme. "Blinding", maybe, but it stood out more. Now it just looks like every other flipper you've ever built. It's as clean as your usual builds, don't get me wrong, it just... doesn't stand out from them, IMO.

Another rebuild of an older bot: my undercutter, Bluebird. The previous versions never fought - unless you count Horror of Koror, which was basically Bluebird 4 - so hopefully this one gets some action. And hopefully it looks a bit less generic than some of my other recent builds, even if the colour scheme still feels a bit plain.

Free component-modding tools? Shut up and take my money!

Could you elaborate on the "daisy-chaining", though? I'm not sure how that's supposed to work.
