DSL TC Showcases / Re: dootIRL

I mean Protostar was neat, but I just didn't say much.

But Pangolin 3?  Woah.  That is just beautiful man.  Does it run out of power often?  I can't see much in the power supply with only two battlepacks unless there's other batteries hidden.

Brackets, Vids, and Awards / Deathmatch 4 - SBV

Now that I finally got my PC back up for now, I can get this going.  Recording will have to take some time, so I'll make sure to find some time for that.  For those with Alternate Configurations or Weapons, I'll PM details to you eventually.  Does give you some time for predictions or bot evaluations so, maybe it's a benefit.

Kinda showed this off already, but I feel I should post it here just in case:



Yes, this is most likely going to be the version of the Juggernaut for the special side event.  Kinda took some notes from Craaig/cephalopod's Havox made for GTMRW about three-ish years ago. (Wow already?  Damn I just feel old now.)  Mostly went with this idea of the Sir Killalot style bot since the saw blade represents the logo of Deathmatch, and really, if a House Robot didn't have something representing the logo, then that's kinda cheating.  The claw is the only thing I'm not too proud of.  It barely even lifts an opponent, let alone it's own weight.  I almost want to scrap the claw for a flamethrower/hammer, which is a version I have here:



On the other hand, I fear this might be slightly redundant for weapons, so I'm more or less trying to figure out which would be more fun in the end.

Multi-Entry Signups / Re: Fresh Metal (Signups Now Open!)

Seeing stuff actually get rejected for sh** like this is pretty refreshing NGL. If tourney hosts stop accepting borderline sh**, build standards are naturally gonna go up as a result.
Yeah, and in this case, I've also had to reject numerous bots for breaking realistic rules so I'm glad that at least some new people are starting to catch on to how IRL can work in the end.  Other than that, I'm not picky on how well built or cool it is.  Improvements are bound to happen, but in due time I always tell myself.

Stock Showcases / Re: RedAce's Stock Showcase

Well, might as well put these two in my showcase since I know I'll forget again.





Basically my bots from the last two unrealistic BOTMs.  Both are fun gut-rippers, efficient, and that's more than I can think is enough to say.  Frankly, I feel I'm starting to lose my touch and inspiration with stock as a while now, so it was fun to go back for a slight bit, but it's time I call it now.  It was fun while it lasted, but I feel I ended on a rather high enough note.  I don't want to say I'll never touch stock again, but I feel with how inactive it is now and frankly no one even touching it and how everything has been just done over and over again, there's a good chance I think this will be the time for me to retire in stock.  I might just upload a ton of robots or make some sort of montage of builds, but chance of me even making that are looking slim.

I have received Kelimpel's entrant.  It is accepted.

And now we have a full house so signups are closed!

I'll get the SBV thread up hopefully shortly, so stay tuned!

Overhauled the Players that were entered in Robogames Series 1 cause multibots are still kinda fun.  Improvements include much faster drive and better wedge for the most part.  Untested in combat as I don't feel like Ai'ing these at the moment, but testing them in the garage proven they are much quicker and should be able to work better.  Hopefully they don't cause friendly fire either.  And yes, the name and theme is kinda copied from one of NFX's ARC bots, but I couldn't come up with a better name for these two, so it'll do.

Well, bad news is that I made a mistake in the entrants needed.  I thought originally I was going to need 42 bots, which is why I changed it in the signups originally, but looking back and doing the math, turns out I actually do need 48 bots.  Honest mistake.

Good news for you, is that because there are more slots, signups are open until those get filled up!  A second chance if you will.  I'll get the entrants that submitted late, and come back with what I have.

Edit: Just checked, and I have Chris/090901's bot.  It's accepted.

Five Spots Remain!

Also, updated the side events list

I have received Sevalent's and Badnik's entrants.  Both are accepted.

With that, we have a full house, and signups for the main tournament are closed!

There are a few spots in the side events that haven't been entered yet, so if you've entered, you can enter that no problem.  I can also allow those who may have missed out but still want to enter regardless... if that's okay with the tournament mods.

For spot, you mean 4? Because I saw you said Wambo was accepted, but you didn't add Wanbo's bot to the list

Also, well, looks like there definitely be people who miss out. Hope they can later enter Fresh Metal if that's the case
Double checked: He's in the list.  Replaced one of the red listed bots with his since I was kinda lazy.

Also, updated the side events list.

I have gotten bots from Wambo, Geese, Sevalent, and Nablijecka.  Wambos is accepted, but the others I have had issues with the others with either custom components, and/or internal clipping issues.  The side events list has also been updated.

Also, I've removed the bots labeled in red on the list since we now only have 6 spots left in the main tournament!

With that in mind, double check and make sure if your bot is listed on the signups list if you have sent me a bot!  With how fast these spots have filled up, it's possible that I have missed someone, so make sure I haven't missed your bot!

Received [cringey name here]'s fix, and KILLER's and Kix's bot.  The first two are accepted, but Kix's bot crashes upon import.

Updated the Side Events list as well.

Recieved Kix's and Sagaris updated seeded bots.  Both are accepted.

Also, I have updated the list for the Side Events so far.
