Robots Showcase / Chatham Challenge Belt - Day 1 (Frenchiest Fries!)
« on: July 05, 2021, 02:00:52 PM »
Hellooooooo everybody.

Its beetleweight tiiiiiime. For the past X amount of months I've been making 2 beetles and over the last weekend one of them competed at Rapture Gaming Festival down in Kent, The Frenchiest Fries.
(If you haven't watched the event, here's a link to Jevan's channel which has them, Here! Jevan killed it all weekend. So many thanks to him!



Heres, what happened.

The format is round robin in groups of 4 in the heat, with the top 2 advancing to playoffs. In our heat we had; Igor, Toxin & Pain Per View.

In our first fight we had Igor (44:06). For this fight, we originally intended to use our own wedges, but they were last minute, dogsh** Gr2 titantium. Luckily for us, Tweedy off Toxin let us use his forks for the fight (Big thanks lad). We also decided to run our fleaweight wedge (Many thanks to Craig for driving that!). It really turned into a pushing match with us getting stuck at one point, needing a unstick. During this fight the big bots were having drive issues, as we discovered after, the cans of the motor would get pressed into by the wires, locking up the drive sometimes. Ultimately the fight ended in Igor getting pinned against the wall and counted out. Not the best way to win, but its what we gotta do! The Igor team were super nice and our pit table neighbours, so I hope there were no hard feelings!

Second fight of the heat, Toxin (2:40:20) :gawe:. Crooked Tweedy had taken back his forks! Understandably, he was clearly shook :)! During the fight, I was propped up about a minute on the wall and had assassinated my link, whilst I was out of it, Toxin lost one half of drive at some point during the fight and Sev took it the full 2 minutes, losing a back plate in the final seconds. We lost the JD and that put us at 1-1, but nothing electrical wise had died! Was an honour fighting Tweedy, dudes a goat when it comes to building bots <3

Heres the damage Tweedy did.
Link sniped
Back panel (After we put it back on)
Wedge chip damage

Our next fight was against Pain Per View (4:39:15), chunky undercutter. For this fight, if we won, we'd advance to playoffs, if not, it'd be a rumble to decide winners.
I think we still had drive issues going into this fight, I'm not sure 100%. However, the fight was over rather quickly. I had pushed PPV into the wall and as he ramped over, caught my link. Sev then after a few shots got stuck crabwalking around by the pit and couldn't escape and got counted out. So 1-2 and put into a rumble. PPV's belt came off right at the end, but alas was little too late. No components lost however, just more of the drive issues as either a result of the ziptie getting cut or just general issues.

For our rumble (6:37:44), they had swapped around the 9 bots in the same situation, giving us random draws. In our rumble we had Pain Per View and the Rovengers.
Having a chat with the guys on the Rovengers, we decided to team up (Sorry Rob!). Rovengers is another cluster and they used their wedge and brick bots in this fight.

As far as damage to us, again our drive locked up at times and we lost a side guard. But, the damage to PPV's weapon from losing the belt, was enough for us to advance to the playoffs!

The next PWT leg is in the combat arena which means Monsieur Grand Flipper Bleu will have to take a timeout due to the lack of pits and OOTA zones. As a result I decided I'd build a new HS since I don't normally do those. Went for a kinda Wild Thing style thing with some influences from Skorpios too, though I did aim to make it pretty distinct from either of those. Obviously with only 2 small typhoons it's not gonna be particularly competitive, but it looks pretty decent I think which is IMO a rarity for HSes, and you get 3 bots in PWT anyway so my other 2 entries can do the heavy lifting competitiveness wise.

Effective immediately, I am leaving RA2 Central.
I made a rant about a month ago about respect. I realize now that the problem I faced then was not respect. Nor was it being a good bot builder. My problem was that all I received the past 9 months was hate. And the hate wasn’t from everybody here. It was only a few people. I don’t need to say their names, because anybody who’s been here for more than a few months knows who they are. This community has embraced hate culture and it’s the reason why so many people have left this community recently. I’m just the next person to leave. I encourage you all to see the toxic side of this community and get rid of them. This community will not get better until you do. I hope some time in the near future I can rejoin this community and not have exclusively hate thrown my way. Until then, I’m heading off. If the community does eventually gets better, put something in my showcase.
Who wrote this lmao.
Draker lol
Well done to him.
I mean is he wrong tho?

Imagine Kix of all the ****ing morons telling us about how toxic we are kekw. Kix we dont like you, go away

Might look better with Wedgelets that are orange or red, rather than yellow.

Soft spot for Vesuvius <3 Love that from you

Can we get a discord hierarchy please?

I mean, if my posts can be controlled by admins and moderators, meaning they have control over everybody else, why not have other stages of rank and power as well? I mean it is only fair.

ADDED: Does it make sense for me to have the same rights as NH or draker? How about newbies? Are they as good at giving advice or knowing about the history of the game or they way things are run?

Are the Admins and Moderators the only people in power? I thought a forum was a place from Ancient Rome and symbolized democracy? Power to the people? Not here...You can even make this a US Government, which in reality is a Hierarchy with just c and balances...but it is NOT fair for someone like Myself hobo or robo be among the same class as draker, pocket jake and NH.
