Active Tournaments / Robotic Combat 2004
« on: July 21, 2020, 03:02:38 PM »
What if Robot Wars had another series in 2004? What if Battlebots had returned after a brief break for Season 6.0? Well Orc took his Time-Space-Transporty-Whatsit to a universe where both shows hadn't been taken off the air AND had joined forces to become...

(Great name I know)

- So the idea behind this tournament is simple: participants must take a robot and design it as if it was entering Series 8 of RW/Season 6.0 of BB. You can take any robot from these franchises...I will also allow you to pick MODERN robots but you must downgrade them to being Series 8/Season 6.0 quality.
- 32 Bot Tournament. Robots will be seperated into 4 heats of 8 in 1 on 1 battles.. All Heat Finalists will advance to the Grand Final but they still fight to confirm their place in the Grand Final. The Grand Final itself features Heat Winners taking on other Heat Runners-Up (So Heat A Winner fights Heat B Runner-Up, Heat B fights Heat C Runner-Up and so on.)
- Robot Wars 2016 Arena.
- Supplying your own AI is appreciated but not required
- Crash Patch is being used (as with all tournaments I run now)
- I shall be entering. I will open up 2nd entries if entries run dry.

Tournament Archives / Anonymous Assault!
« on: July 04, 2020, 05:25:58 PM »
Don't worry, Sunday Night Showdown will be happening...after OW5! But for now...

- Idea behind this tournament is that the builders that take part aren't revealed TILL THE END OF THE TOURNAMENT. Trying this out for an experiment.
- 16 bot tournament (ideally new builds, maybe 32 depending on how much interest there is.) Single knock-out tournament.
- RoboGames Arena for a change of pace!
- Supplying your own AI is appreciated but not required

BUILDING RULES: (basically OW5 rules)

Last note: if you do enter...DO NOT TELL OTHERS/SHOW YOUR ENTRIES, it goes against the point of this tournament.

Active Tournaments / Orc's Wars Series 5
« on: May 24, 2020, 03:15:11 PM »

Orc's Wars Series 5 - the final series for OW, at least that's the intention at this point in time. Let's take a look at how everything works!


With all that being said: NEW BLOOD entries will open on the 2ND JUNE and be open for a week! Good luck!

Contests / BOTM December 2019.
« on: December 04, 2019, 07:09:59 AM »
Hello folks, yes BOTM is alive for this month and we're going oldschool with the format.

Entrants must build a robot based on the theme "WINTER" and then create a splash for it to submit to the BOTM account. You can use whatever game/meta you like with no weight limit. Only other rules I will add are: BE CREATIVE and HAVE FUN! :mrgreen:

Splashes must:
- Be sent to the BOTM account by 11.59 pm, GMT Time, 27th December 2019.
- One splash per member.
- Contain images of the robot (add insides if you wish)
- Contain information (weight/weaponry etc)
- Images must be no wider than 700px and no taller than 800px. (Going by old BOTM here so let's stick with it for now)

Apologies for no BOTM last month but we were trying to think of ways to gather interest back in it after seeing people opposed to it being on Discord. If you want BOTM to remain on the forum then this is your time to take part and make it happen: as admins we can put ideas forward to try and keep things fresh/consistent but it's up to everyone as a community to keep things going.

Best of luck all! :dance:

Contests / BOTM Changes going forward
« on: September 29, 2019, 05:10:19 AM »
Hello all!

Thanks again for your feedback about BOTM! Starting onwards, BOTM will mostly remain the same apart from that entries for it must now be SHOWCASED alongside being messaged to the BOTM account. Hopefully, this will provide a bit of a burst in showcases and encourages feedback/talk. Kix will host this month again but we're planning on alternating hosts monthly to stop people getting bored/burning out.

Also if you haven't voted for BOTM October then GO AND DO IT AAAAAAAAAAAAH

Thank you!

Off-Topic Discussion / Looking For: Dedicated BOTM/Challenge Belt Staff!
« on: September 22, 2019, 03:28:36 PM »
Yes indeed: we're looking for dedicated members who will be happy to host BOTM/Challenge Belt. If current hosts wish to stay on then they can let me know below!

BOTM Host (CodeSilver, Sickle, Dark-AL, Bildschirm,
Stock Challenge Belt Host (+ possible Parsec Host) Nicky
Ironforge Challenge Belt Host (+ possible Parsec Host)
DSL-S Challenge Belt Host (+ possible Parsec Host) 8bean (non-Parsec),
DSL-IRL Challenge Belt Host (+ possible Parsec Host) Bildschirm, Orc

If interested, please detail what host role(s) you would like to take on. I will be discussing the future of these events with those who get the roles.

Thank you!

Off-Topic Discussion / IDEA: RA2 2020 Tournament Season
« on: September 17, 2019, 05:24:06 AM »
Okay so this idea is the most experimental and if it went live wouldn't start until 2020. I was inspired by how the Roblox robot events were run and I did briefly talk with Sevalent about this a while ago.

- To try and encourage people to host/take part in tournaments, this Season would be a topic of some sort showing a list/calender of official tournaments.
- Hosts would have to sign their tournament up to be added to the official list/calender. New/unreliable hosts would probably have to commit to finishing a tournament first before having tournaments accepted.
- Every tournament winner heads to the "End of Year Celebration" to battle it out in a fun tournament where we crown the best of the best but also celebrate a year of tournaments/GTM/RA2 etc etc. These winners will of course be seperated by their meta and weightclass.
- I'm also thinking of adding BOTM and Challenge Belt into this somehow. BOTM is a lot easier of an idea (The 11/12 BOTM winners would be voted on, robot with the most votes wins Bot Of The Year) but Challenge Belt will require some thinking.

I am more than happy to discuss this with all of you as it's a very experimental idea that would require a lot of elbow grease but could be a lot of fun. I'm hoping with this, we can get more Stock/IF tournaments and have more variety in weightclass/arena etc as I feel we've been missing that for a long time. Of course for this to work, it would require EVERYONE to work together.

Looking forward to hearing your opinions and ideas.

Cheers! :mrgreen:

Site News and Feedback / RA2 Central Discord
« on: September 16, 2019, 07:14:37 AM »
Hello folks!

Geese has been talking about this for a while and yesterday we finally made it a thing: a new Discord for RA2 players from all backgrounds. It is NOT a GTM discord, it is NOT a private discord, this is to try and be a central point for all communities to converge and socialise over RA2 with links to other community discords/websites to build a web, if you will. We have Garry's Wars involved already (massive thanks to Yugitom and Croga for their help here) and plan on getting other robotic communities involved to try and mend/build bridges!

Hope you consider joining this community. :mrgreen:

Off-Topic Discussion / BOTM and Challenge Belt Feedback
« on: September 15, 2019, 12:21:52 PM »
Hello all,
             short and sweet: I want to know your thoughts on Bot Of The Month and Challenge Belt as they currently stand. Do you like the current formats they have? Do you think they need to be reverted back to older ways/different ideas?  What would make these events better or worse in your eyes?

This might seem like a small issue to start with but I figured I may as well lend you all my ears while I work on the bigger issues.

Tournament Archives / Orc's Wars Series 3!
« on: December 24, 2018, 07:33:38 PM »
Welcome to the Orc's Wars Series 3 SBV!

Full Splash!

Individual Splashes coming soon!

Bracket: (You should probably watch qualifying first if you want to see WHO got through.) Every bot has three 1 on 1 fights and a melee.


Congrats to all those who qualified! Splashes are my next focus and then OW3 may slowly begin! :mrgreen:

Tournament Archives / Orc's Wars: Series 3
« on: November 09, 2018, 05:02:05 PM »

IT'S SHOWTIME...and we're finally going OFFICIAL baby! Many thanks to Hoppin for once again helping to make the logo for this tournament! :heart_smiley:

112 robot places for Qualifiers, only 56 will qualify for the main series of OW3! If more than 112 bots are submitted then I will be choosing what gets entered. No robot is automatically guaranteed access.
Qualifiers will be 4 way rumbles with 2 bots advancing from each one. Main series format is based on Battlebots 2018, ending with a 32 bot bracket!
Reskinned RW 2016 Arena
3 entries (not counting seeds) per person
I reserve the right to deny your robot for any reason!
Signups will open for a maximum of a month. If 168 bots (yeah I doubt this will happen but putting it here in case) then sign-ups will last for one more week from that point. Basically: signups will end either in a month or a week after it hits 168 robots...whichever comes first.

Entries so far: 128/112 - Main Goal Reached!
                     128/168 - Extra Goal

DSL TC Showcases / Orc's DSL Showcase
« on: April 01, 2017, 08:28:56 AM »
So I've been getting into DSL more recently (thanks to Demon's latest tournament for really kicking my motivation into gear!) They are probably not the best designs as I'm still learning, some have quite a bit of open space/areas but hey, I'm welcome to feedback!  :bigsmile:
