Oh man... That main shaping is no problem, but that design on the wedge is gonna take a hell a lot of time....

Expect mine in as close to the deadline as possible (if life lets me lol). What day exactly will the deadline be?
They’ll close on the 29th, so you have time.
And don’t worry, next time won’t be so difficult  ;)

i think once in a while, we could go back to the old BOTM and have a theme
as for the challenge belt, we could use a total revamp

As well as choosing the bot I think you should choose what it should be made in. Otherwise someone who builds a real solid stock bot will almost always get beaten out by someone who makes and renders a CAD
Maybe different categories?
Stock/IF, DSL, RR2/CAD?

After a pretty positive response, let's get started!
Just some common rules:
  • any game works, though they may be separated into their own categories when voting commences (ie: stock category, dsl category, etc.)
  • you have to recreate the bot i say
  • you get two weeks to make your bot and send your splash to me
  • at the end of the two weeks, a vote will be held to decide the best replica
Without further ado, your first replica bot will be:
And with that, Cringey's Replica Rampage begins!

well, some people prefer building in different styles, and i dont want to exclude them because of that.

Okay, there is no much to show yet, but the work is in progress and there are some good news!

My friend is already working on UI/UX design. it's going to be beautiful and intuitive :)))
and recently i discovered that one of my clients is a Robot Arena fan!
and since he's a professional 3D designer, i asked him to make some components, and he has agreed!

past week I've planned which features i should add next, and what I'm going to make in the Pre-Pre Alpha Build.

- First of all, I''ll make some premade hull designs.
the feature of creating a custom hull from drawing, will be added later.

- Construction in the bot lab.

- Wiring/Controls.

- Test area with different obstacles!

And yes.. i need a logo for the game  :vista:
I'll try to make something.
I'll be glad to hear(or to see) some suggestion for the logo xD
That’s awesome to hear! Can’t wait to see it!

I’ve tried this once before, I want to try it again!
So, one of the biggest reasons people start playing RA2 is because of replicas. We have creators like the Barangoat and Resetti introducing people to the game through their favorite robots from real life replicated in game. Building replicas is something many of us like to do, so I want to make a challenge off of it.
Basically, how it would work is that I will choose a bot from any competition (Battlebots, Robot Wars, KoB, etc.) and you guys will try and recreate it. You PM your splash to me and we have a vote on which one looks the best. You can do this is RA2 (stock or DSL), RR2, or even CAD!
So, what do you guys think? Anything I can add? Anything I should remove? Anything I should change? I’m open to anything right now. Thanks!

pretty much everything yugi said was dead on and pretty much everything roboteer said was super condescending and dumb made me want to give him the biggest wedgie of his life.

first of all, yea, having this fractured community is a real pain in the neck and is the main reason it's dying. second, i guarantee you that showcases are dying on all these other discords. don't get me wrong they may be super active, but they are dying because it's non-sustainable in the long term. forums are just so far out of the league of discord/reddit/twitter because they archive information and don't bury it. losing all that info is like burning books man i'm serious. how on earth are newbies supposed to learn if they can't lurk because they 1) can't find the dang channel and 2) can't view bots that other people built for longer than 5 min. it's just so bad. not that I think forums are the king of the hill by any means, but discord doesn't even do this better. immediate feedback? sure. a record of all post? abysmal. but that's the point of a community. saying forums are obsolete because of discord is like saying books are obsolete because texting was invented. that doesn't even make sense.

for GTM i feel like our discord should be deleted. it's such a cesspool and only serves to further divide the community for no reason. obviously stuff like OW and PWS can't be given that same treatment nor should they, but they are still a major cause of the community fracturing. i was never invited to a lot of these communities because i don't know the secret handshake and i'm not sure I would want to if I did because i like to showcase bots? i'm not sure if there is a solution to this mess as a whole. i do think having leadership you can look up to would go a long ways to making this a better environment but i'm not sure who that would be either. I still doubt I would want to do it.
'cultural/technological progression' is only a small part of this despite people seeming to think it's most of the problem. a huge reason why gtm is dying is that no one showcases anymore because people are too busy throwing their bots in the trash to immediately get buried on other fractured platforms instead. it's really depressing knowing that none of those bots will be remembered in 10 years. do you think anyone would remember this in ten years on discord? yeah right. but there is a guest reading it here right now.

I don't think this actually has anything to do with the fact that GTM has bad rep or it's a forum. When I joined in 2014, GTM had gone through a **** ton of drama and forums weren't exactly hip and happening, yet I'd say there was a lot of activity. Obviously not compared to the older days I weren't around for but, nevertheless, it was way more active than it is now and I felt it was in a good place. I just think Discord has allowed people to incredibly easily make their own private forums and it's escalated to this.

this is exactly it. it also blows my mind that pretty much all of the people posting on this topic about why GTM is awful and should fail are pretty much the exact members causing it in the first place.
centauri has a discord, no?

This is obviously a bad idea. However, I'm all for new contests. I think it'll be a nice way to get more people involved if we have challenges or themes like the old BOTM did.

as a """boomer"""" I hate the fact I have to join a new discord server for like every god damn tournament to know whats even going on but that's just me
****ing this

I wouldn't mind if GTM weren't the only place to go for RA2 if I didn't have to go on a scavenger hunt to find the other ones. I swear the OW and PWS servers aren't public and they're apparently the most thriving places for RA2. I could be wrong by now (since I last checked) but I just can't be arsed to check and go on said scavenger hunt. I don't know how the current community puts up with it.
As geice said, pretty much everyone actively playing the game who isn't a raging arsehole gets invited to these servers. You don't play the game, or at least haven't shown any evidence of it, so you aren't in them. Newbies who show up do play the game, and most of them are in these discords as a result. If you really want to get in, legit all you have to do is play the game, and if you aren't interested in doing that then there's probably very little in the discords for you anyway.
but how will new guys know to start being active on GTM in order to get invited to these more active splinter groups? As Badger said, all they see, on the surface, is a relatively dead forum. What kind of incentive is that? You say all one has to do is play RA2 but it really isn't that simple. And what's meant to happen, literally every new person gets PM'd 3 discord links when they post a showcase? Sounds pretty pointless to me.
Notice this new KupaTec guy? He's been here only for a week or two, but he shows that he cares about the game, and genuinely wants to play it. Thus, he was invited to the Orc's Wars server.
It's all really basic. This is where you get started with your building, and the discords are when you want to get involved.
