Hey guys. I just wanted to make this announcement really quick.
I quit.
I can't do RA2 anymore. I can't do tournaments anymore. I just can't over the past few weeks everything just feels like a chore to do. RA2 just isn't what it used to be for me. When I got my new computer, the first thing I thought was "OK, I need to make something for so and so's tournament." Notice how I said "need" instead of "want". I didn't need to build anything. I never have. I just thought I did.
Before I go, I want to thank everybody here. It's been a nice year or so with you guys, and you guys have been excellent people throughout. I'm not leaving because of you. I'm not leaving because of a failed tournament or whatever. I'm leaving because I can't find enjoyment in playing RA2.
If an admin wants to delete my account, go ahead, because chances are that I won't return for a while. Sorry this was so short, I just wanted to get this off my chest. Many of you may hate me for making such a big deal of it, so go ahead. At least I won't be here to hear it.
Thanks.

Totally understandable.  I'll look forward to the day you return, hopefully with a more casual mindset towards the game so that this doesn't happen to you again.
I don't see the purpose in deleting your account considering you specified that you won't return "for a while."  Who knows, maybe I'm not seeing the full picture you're going for.

Just know I never felt any ill will towards ya, and will miss you.

See you tomorrow :D

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!

SO

THE PLAN WAS SIMPLE. WIN FOR THE BOYS.

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!

Here's how they looked after day 1

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.
