I swear I've seen Blackout in a tournament before 🤔 Am I getting alzheimers in my old age?

I love the use of shell panels on the last bot. The other 3 seem a bit below your usual level.

stop spamming threads asking people to upload random bots to the bot exchange. If you really have to, ask politely in a PM instead.

Fair enough, that is a very weird place to put a battery which is why I asked.

Do you have the battery AP fix/mod? Most people use it when building, and the weird battery placement could possibly be due to you not having it? There's also a similar fix/mod for the NPC motors which is generally accepted into tournaments as well.

CROP YOUR SCREENSHOTS PEOPLE, anyway my hot takes below FWIW

Ya, MCL-34 is worse than I remember. I think it's borderline but OK for regular IRL tournaments (It's been accepted a few times now), since you're going more strict I see your point. Fair do's. The whole chassis of the bot is pretty poorly done TBH, so maybe a remake is on the cards.

#2 looks the same, IRL legal by our standards but it's not something you'd actually see IRL probably. Not as bad as my bot.

Rejecting a bot cause you can't AI it is pretty bad, since knowing how to AI is a prerequisite for hosting a tournament. If it's a lifter bot, I'm sure there's a lifter.py or something like that, with a relatively easy setup. Worst comes to worst, you can usually get anything AI'd if you post in the GTM discord asking for help.

#4 see #2 but probably about as bad as my bot if not worse

#5 ya that looks like straight clipping
Tbf for MCL-34, I only accepted the VS version that you made specifically for me. Never saw that bot entered into anything other than this and my tourney
I didn't make the VS version specifically for you, I made it before I entered either version in anything as a tryhard "Tournament Edition" version of the regular bot, as I do with a few of my builds. IIRC I've entered the axebot version in 1 or 2 other tournaments, where it's been accepted.
Just want to ask, but what are those tourneys. Never saw them
Just went back through my PMs and I can't find anything, so I guess I was just making sh** up in my head. My bad, I could've sworn that I submitted it to at least 1 tournament somewhere down the line.

I'm not a fan of this new trend of cloning OW's ruleset, since IMO it's got some brainlet-tier rules in there. I don't see the point in the burst rules, and I think it'll just push people into making more of the boring generic HS/VS that we've seen a billion of, and the typhoon ban seems pretty weak. It would be nice to see them banned outright IMO (except for single tooth spinners) to get some variation in there. The replica discs haven't been relevant in the HW class for ages, so I don't see the logic in banning those. I'm also against the eternalflame ban but I understand that I'm in the extreme minority in that opinion. I also don't see the point of splitting entrants into extenderbots and chassisbots.

On the bright side, I do like the outright multibot ban (it's just AI abuse), I like that the Ring arena is in there (although switching the RG/RW arenas for something more fresh like ELBITE or something from RWRA2 or anything really would be nice IMO), and the tournament will fill up super quickly regardless of the ruleset because it's HW IRL.

What about V2+ versions of robots, or alternate designs?

These aren't the robots I would enter, but using them as an example. The one on the right "Chicken Biscuit" I have entered in a tournament. The one on the left is designed in the spirit of Chicken Biscuit, and therefore named "Chicken Biscuit JR". It's a completely different robot, but clearly an evolution of the first one. It's never been in a tournament. Would that be an acceptable entry?   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
typhoons are banned my guy

I mean, i did specifically say they weren't an entry and just an example to something completely irrelevant to weapon teeth...
serves me right for skim reading
