Tournament Archives / Trak Attak

I'll probably be hosting another wacky gimmick tourney like this in the near future :dance:
Well here's that tourney. Tracks are hardly ever used in IRL builds due to their immense weight, giant size, and overall less practicality when compared to wheels. So I was wondering how a tournament of only tracked bots would go.
 


GENERAL RULES
-DSL IRL HW
-16 Entries
-Double Elimination Bracket
-Starcore Arena

BUILDING RULES
-800kg or less
-Only allowed form of movement is with tracks
-Bots must have a chassis, no pixelchassis
-Multibots are allowed but both must use tracks for drive
-A bot that utilizes servos or a hammer not powered by bursts will be accepted only if it is already AI'd
-DSC's IRL Pack, Component Freedom, kix's locked npcs, and BFE is all allowed.
-I retain the right to reject any bot for any reason
-One bot per person unless the 16 person limit cannot be reached where it will be opened up to two

FIGHT RULES
-3 havok resets allowed per match (will not be present in vid)
-3 min fight
-Judges Decision will be based on Damage Aggression and Control with each category splitting 9 points between the two bots
-If a robot has all of its tracks removed then it will be considered knocked out
-A manual countdown will be initiated if a bot cannot show controlled movement for more than 20 seconds

SIDE EVENT
-DSL-S, Ironforge, and Retooled will each have their own single elimination mini bracket to accommodate the main tourney
-The minimum number of entries for each meta is 4. If this number is not reached in one of the metas then it will not participate. The maximum bots per will be 8.
-Each meta follows their standard ruleset
-Each meta follows their heavyweight weight restriction
-The bots must only use tracks for movement
-I retain the right to reject any bot for any reason
-Entrants can send bots for as many or as few metas as they would like. Only one bot is allowed per meta though
-A bot that utilizes servos or a hammer not powered by bursts will be accepted only if it is already AI'd
-If you are not participating in the main IRL tourney you can still enter a side event
-Fight rules are the same as the ones posted above

ENTRIES

Rejected
Accepted
Accepted and AI'd

Notes:
I decided to enact the chassisbot rule due to several factors
1. the majority of tracked bots I've seen are chassisbots
2. havoks r dum and ruin good fights
3. uhhhh... chassis skins  heck
In order to ensure that a whole bunch of overheads or gutrippers murder the chassis in 3 seconds, I chose the Starcore arena to provide ample flipout zones. This should hopefully balance the field out and provide builders with the choice to try and go for the oota or bite into that juicy chassis for a KO

What do you guys think and would you be down to enter this?

Was gonna find some of the old sh** I made 9 years ago to celebrate RA2's 16th birthday but I forget where the CD went ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so here's some bots that I made for tourneys and never did anything with

 


Yea, its got a static wedge so it isn't gonna get under anything. I tried fitting a burst in somewhere but every time it either went overweight or just didn't work right

 


Now this thing really sucks. There's too much chassis space, razors and axes combined, and 3 stacked pinks don't power it the whole time (I don't think?). Was probably slapped together for asbestossars tourney that never happened

Discussion / What is the most balanced arena?
« on: September 23, 2018, 10:32:15 PM »
I know a handful of tournaments use the RW2016 and Robogames arenas but I was wondering what else you guys thought was balanced and if these arenas that are used the most are fair themselves

Robots Showcase / 8bean builds bots IRL

Hello everyone! 4 of my friends and I got together and decided to build two bots. We had limited resources and time so neither of them came out as expected.

The first bot is Sean.
 

Sean is a beetleweight wedge powered by 4 22:1 silversparks by a 3c 12v lipo. It was originally supposed to have a servo lifter but due to weight constraints it had to be removed.
 

This caused Sean to have a lot of excess space and be way too large.

The second bot we made is named Vaughn.
 

Vaughn is a mantisweight thwackbot that was made at the last second with spare RC parts. Rushing this bot out was a poor decision on our part because at the event we had a full electronics malfunction and had to forfeit it from the tournament.

Sean fought in three matches. This first match was against a plastic coffee cup and would determine our standing in the tournament based off of the damage we had done to it. Needless to say our wedge could do very little against it so it basically became a game of ram the cup as many times as possible.

Unfortunately, after this match we discovered that both of our back motors had become disconnected from the gearboxes. We spent an hour and a half troubleshooting these motors but couldn't get them to reconnect correctly to the gearbox.
The second match it fought in was against a very small overhead bar spinner named WISPTEC. Prior to this battle, WISPTEC had shredded its weapon bar mount when fighting the cup. Since the bar couldn't be repaired in time, a wooden ruler became its primary weapon for this match.

Our third and final match was against the feared Rapid Unscheduled Dissasembly. Lets just say that we came out of this match much better than expected.

Since Vaughn forfeit its match, the very generous host of this tournament provided us with an RC car toy named Sacraficial Lamb. It fought valiantly against the destructive American Banshee.


This event was a great experience and was very fun to participate in. We are certain that we will come back next year with something much more planned out and will hopefully take home a trophy.

Man, I haven't booted up Ironforge in a while. The wingman tourney got me back though and I decided to slap some stuff together.

First off is Nail. Nail is a 399.8kg poker that is going to be competing in wingman with Plerco's bot, Hammer.


Next, here is JUMBO. JUMBO is a HUGE style VS that weighs 399.5k.


So yeah, those r my botbois.

Hey everyone, I just picked up on DSL IRL and decided to give it a shot. My first bot, Purple Nurple is a huge HS Heavyweight that uses frenzy hammers becuase why not and is powered by a perm 132. It has an all Aluminum chassis driven by two fast NPC-T64's. This robot is my entry into GTMCS2.



My second IRL bot is Mustard. Mustard is a very poorly armored and designed Cruiserweight VS but I'm really inexperienced with them so I decided to give it a try. It has an all aluminum frame with polycarbonate panels and is driven by two fast NPC-T64's. The weapon is a beater bar disk powered by a perm 132. This is my entry into the Deathmatch tournament.



Also I suck at image editing so yeah.
