Crap, I better enter something fast!
Did you not read the giant bold text that says to not build yet?
Oops, too late, built a bot already. Oh well.

Anyways, can I sign up for the tourney? This tournament's team concept is interesting to me.
Yeah but the point of the tourney is that you build after signing up. You get into teams and discuss among yourselves what bot type each person is gonna do and then build a bot accordingly. Coming in with a bot pre built doesn't really work.
Yeah, sorry. I'm not used to this type of format. So, where do we discuss team stuffs?
It's fine DW about it. Each team will likely get put into discord groups if it's like last time, where they can discuss what bot types each person wants to do and share pics of builds in progress to get advice and feedback and stuff

Well it's a new year so I better get my "1 middleweight per year" quota out of the way

A new MW version of Claymore/Sabre. Actually learned some interesting new weight management techniques that should be useful on my HWs and CWs as well doing it so it was actually worth the effort, and it's certainly an improvement over the old MW Sabre/Claymore that I built back in like 2018. If ever there's a tournament calling for MWs, CWs and HWs or something then this will likely be my entry.

Quick rebuild of an old blue flipper to shake off the rust of not building for 3 months.

Probably gonna skin up the flipper panels and chuck it in AC3 depending how many entries each person gets

One day I'll make a britflipper that can actually win fights
The flipper itself is neat, but I REALLY love the name.
I've got a big notepad doc of just random cool words that I think would work as bot names

So once there is 8 more bots, the deadline will be set for submissions, or will submissions just close once there are 8 more bots? (just checking as I'm still tryna figure out all the new DSL stuff)
Once 48 teams are hit, then the deadline will be set for 1 week after. People can still enter during that week but after that entries will close

Is this for OW?

There's a lot of non-standard components here that mean it's not gonna be legal. At a glance both the battery you're using and the burst motor aren't included in DSL 2.4

Everyone's posting their OW5 lineups so I guess I'll post mine. Nothing really new or exciting but most of my bots have been updated both visually and performatively since you last saw them.

 


Missing Link: Has been cleaned up a fair bit since you last saw it but is otherwise the same. This is my reserve entry so you may not be seeing it in the main series

Claymore (Seeded 16th): Pretty major rebuilds since it was showcased here. Way, way cleaner with the panels all lining up properly at last. Finally it looks better than Sabre (the bot it replaced). I also skinned up a couple of panels just to make it look a little nicer too. Hoping this one does well.

Bocuma (Seeded 3rd): Has actually seen a near total rebuild to bring it in weight with the 2.4 component changes but as always it retains the same design. There has been one change in terms of competitiveness though: it now has a Dantomkia-style "kickstand" bit at the back to try and keep the wedge on the floor as one of Bocuma's biggest weaknesses was how it would wheelie when hitting an opponent allowing them to get under what is otherwise a near-peerless wedge.

Speed Demon VII: My lock in for the series. Wedgelets are spaced further apart than when I last showcased this as a result of experience in PWS (which resulted in it eventually winning the final installment of that tournament). 2.4 freed up some weight which I've used to both substantially buff the armour, and also to make the transition of the wedge/anti spinner pieces into the chassis cleaner.

Phosphor: My qualifier bot. Has also seen a total rebuild as a result of being nearly 200kg overweigh in 2.4. By building much smarter I was able to get it in weight without really sacrificing looks at all. Hammerbots are never great in RA2 but as hammerbots go this is a pretty decent one, and managed to push Greedee pretty hard in its last tournament appearance which hopefully bodes well.

tldr: the slots for selecting robots get progressively more unstable and there's nothing we can do to fix them. it's not actually the amount of robots in the arena that's causing the issues like we thought



even larger and heavier items like wheels aren't stable in the last slot

The fact that they're basically just a coinflip of who gets ganged up on should be reason enough to stop doing rumbles, let alone the fact they make the game sh** itself on top of that.

Unfortunately, I had to reject a couple, mostly just due to stuff clipping with the Chassis that would make it look unrealistic.

Rejected: Nabi - Lajonet fran Norden (Motors clipping through the chassis)
Pocket Jake - Decap (Gearbox clipping through chassis)
WillOfForce - Rest in Piece (Motors clipping through chassis)

That stuff is normally legal in IRL tournaments.
I've seen one of the 3 of these and the drive motors were clipping pretty egregiously through the bottom panel of the robot. IDK about the other 2 but he was right to reject that IMO

Another bot updated. Cicada this time. I know quite a lot of people like this one, and I do too, but it needed some changes. First off I cleaned up the panel work. Stuff fits together much better now. One thing I never liked about the previous iteration was the big dumb granny wheels it needed to run inverted, so I've ditched invertability completely in favour of a srimech powered by a slow mag (the green bit on top is the srimech. Took some fiddling to get the whole thing in weight but I got there by optimising my extenderwork. I plan to skin the microvore at some point too to match the theme better but for now I'm happy with this thing.
