Discussion / Non GTM RA2 Thread
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:40:05 AM »
So, after seeing some non GTM RA2 stuffs, I decided to make a thread for things related to them, to show the rest of GTM those, as I noticed that most of the stuffs found outside of GTM are posted or linked on Discord, and there's some people who don't use it.

So first, for tourneys, there's Robotic World League by Alloftheman. RWL 2 will happen somewhere this month or next month. In addition, it will release eps when signup for RWL 2 happens. It has an intro now though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KFg5E48oUo&feature=youtu.be

Second tourney is Robottal Wars, by the Good Robottal people, who mainly operate on Youtube and Discord. Their YouTube channel if you want to watch it: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC9w0YrifKOGJhzC7cM8lIFg

And third, in the Unofficial Robot Arena 2 Facebook group, there's a Chinese RA2 AI tourney now. It doesn't have a standardized standard right now though. Pics of it and the splashes, as well as link (for link, you have to be a member of the group to see it though)

Multi-Entry Signups / Gladiator's Row (Signup Closed)
« on: May 03, 2019, 10:22:15 AM »


So, after hosting Robot Emperor, a thought came to me recently. I love the tourney system of challenge belt, as well as the seven weightclasses, so why not do the challenge system unofficially. So here is my idea. I plan for it to cover all seven weightclasses, with 16 entries each, single elimination, and for it to be like GTM: Open Event in frequency.

Tournament Rules:
- DSL 2.2 IRL
- Seven weightclasses (AW, BW, LW, MW, CW, HW, and SHW)
- 1v1
- Single elimination
- 16 entries for each weightclass
- One entry per person
- There will be a 16th spot playoff in case I get more than 16 entries per weightclass through some excessive sending by builders
- I can AI your bot if you can't do it yourself. It will be preferred if you send your own AI however
- Just a note for future tournament, but the system this tournament runs mean that the champion of this will have to defend their title next series against the winner of the bracket.

Build Rules:
- Maximum weight: 125 (AW), 175 (BW), 250 (LW), 400 (MW), 600 (CW), 800 (HW), and 1200 (SHW)
- DSL-IRL rules (see TheRoboteer's IRL Guide for it)
- Bots must show controlled movement
- RA2CF, OBJRA2, BFE, any Colored Components, NPC Fix, Battery AP Fix, Locked NPC's, etc allowed
- Reskinned component, and even custom component allowed, as long as they have the same, or inferior stat to an existing component, and accurate colission mesh.
- Any cheatbot2 components are allowed, as long as they are not too abusive, or are aesthetic in nature.
- Typhoon teeth limit is 6 small typhoons, and 4 large typhoons
- Mechavore and Minion Disc limit are one, while Microvore and Mini Minion Disc limit are two
- Thwackbots, SnS, and Meltybrain allowed. However, I will nerf them in the AI by setting their range value to very low so they won't be very broken. Meltybrain must also use LED's around their body to simulate RL melty AI
- Clusterbots, Minibots, and Drones allowed. In case of drones, I will use Doot's modified invisible and 0.1kg hover engine component. They must also have powered fake rotors
- Modularity allowed, in all forms, including major, minor, cluster or minibot change, and AI. Modular configs will also be unlimited.
- Shufflers and Walkers allowed. Shuffler will gain 50% weight bonus, while walker receives 100%. However, you must AI walkers yourself.
- You can send updates, or replacements as much as you want until signup ends
- for AI py, custom ones are allowed in addition to existing ones. However, no eternalflame, or other abusive AI's, including custom ones.
- In case I feel doubt about your entry, I will ask you about it. And in case I reject it, I will try to help you how to make it legal by saying what I think should be changed.

Battle Rules:
- Ring Arena (Reskinned)
- 3 minute battles
- For clusterbots, if more than 50% of their total weight is immobilized, they will be counted out.
- A bot will be given 10 seconds to show controlled movement in case they lost it, and a countdown of 10 seconds will start if they still fail to show it when the 10 seconds limit run out.
- In case of havoks, I will rerecord until there is a match with no havok. However, if the matches keep havoking even after a lot of rerecording, the one with the least havok will be used
- If the match keeps crashing or havok before a clear conclusion, like being ripped apart enough that it would be considered immobilized IRL, a judge's decision will be held
- For Judge's decision, there will be three categories of scoring, damage, aggression, and control, with 15 points each for them, for 45 points total. Those 45 points will be divided among two bots
 
My Entry:
I will also enter myself, leaving 15 free spots in all weightclasses
AW: Antbar Gen II
BW: Flipping Beetle Gen II
LW: OverCutter
MW: Di-Trouble Gen II
CW: V2
HW: OverChopper Gen III
SHW: OverCleaver Gen II

Discussion / GTM Contest Subforum improvement idea
« on: October 16, 2018, 09:04:02 AM »
So, I have an idea on how to improve the contest subforum on GTM to make it more fun for users. After seeing F1krazy doing an Inktober, but for bots instead, and calling it Inktober, and then seeing some people doing it, like Sagaris and Superbomb, it inspired me. Orc's first tourney, Orc's Tourney, as well as Primeval's bet for Destruction Evolution 3, where people will be given real life bots to replicate, but allowed to make it original on the same time by giving their own twist, is also an inspiration on my idea, as I like the concept.

So, back to my idea, basically it is adding new contests that involved bot building. As we all know, the contests subforum is only used for BOTM. So, we should add more contests other than BOTM to make people more interested in building. Users will be allowed to start their own contest and set the period when it will run, with a maximum limit of a month, from thread start and entry receiving, to displaying entries and allowing people to vote on it, and then showing who win and giving award to them if the person who runs it want to, like the bot file of the entrants, for example.

Also, before a user can start a contest, it will have a bit similar requirement to tourneys, like users must have time to host it. Contests then must pass through a mod approval first before it can start. When the entry receiving period ends, the user then must make a special voting thread that shows the bots made by users, before showing the winner of the contest after voting period ends. And I also forget, but users can choose what will the contest be like in premise. Will it accommodate any Meta, or just one. And will it have a particular gimmick or not, like being randomly given a real life bot to replicate but giving original twist to it, or to do a bot building prompt. To accommodate the different gimmicks, it will also be allowed to have voting variation. So like Botober contest style for example, will have the builder itself being voted instead of individual bots and their bots displayed on an image hosting site.

And with that, I am going to finish my idea talk. I hope this idea will be considered good and can make contests better. However, you can also help me refine this idea by suggesting something or pointing out whatever flaw I made when typing this.

Ironforge TC Showcases / Billy's Ironforge Build and Try
« on: September 08, 2018, 09:04:10 AM »
Welcome to my Ironforge showcase. Like with my Stock showcase, this will only showcase tourney, challenge, and BOTM bots. For my first bot, it's a spinner that can be moved with a servo. It's named Movercut, and it's a LW for Reier's Centauri rental, and challenge belt where it will be slightly modified. The design is meant to allow the driver to smack opponents by moving the spinner hen they are on the side, while having the wedge be on the same location. Unfortunately, at max speed, it becomes janky to drive due to physics, as the spinner jerks around. Also, one ballast is used on the bot. Armor, meanwhile, is 3mm alu

Stock Showcases / Billy's Stock Build and Try
« on: September 08, 2018, 08:27:12 AM »
Welcome to my stock showcase. Since I'm not a fan of stock, I will only post bots that are for tourneys, challenges, and BOTM's. So, here is my first stock HW, entered in Revolution 3, Overpop. It is a HW popup. Though I'm too lazy to improve on it. Will do once I get the motivation to do it, like another tourney.

 

 

 


Also, LW for this month's challenge belt will come soon
