nobody did the swing day, lol
I wanted to, as I actually had an idea, but I ended up busy. I'll see if I can catch up tonight.

Holy wow, has it really been three whole months since I finished a new build? My new job is taking up even more of my time than I thought  :dead:

Anyway, here's a compacted version of Bardiche, my vertical bar spinner. It now has improved battery life, improved self-righting, longer wedgelets, and a slightly altered colour scheme to better match the character it's based on.


This completes my Arena Champions 2 lineup: it'll be joining its sister bot Graf Eisen, the champion Octane B-Spec, and LadyKiller.

That's beautiful, Super, I love it.

I'm a bit burned out from Ludum Dare (plus I have work to do for AC2 and DM5) so idk when my next build for this will be. Soon, hopefully.

F1, love the Absolute Zero rebuild. Some concerns might be the battery life when batteries take damage. But I gotta love the front wedge shape!
It's got three motors and enough battery to power four, I think I have enough spare. And thanks! Gotta see if I can take a picture of the HW and MW versions together for comparison.

I put way too much effort into this, but here you go, my Day 4 entry!


Having finally rebuilt Absolute Zero not too long ago, its kid brother now gets the same treatment. I feel a bit bad about swapping the custom-skinned Mini Minion Disc for a meta device two small Typhoons, but early testing suggests this thing is pretty strong now (and pretty fast!)

Ludum Dare 45 kicks off in ten minutes so I'll see you guys on Monday, keep building in my stead! DON'T LET THE FLAME DIE OUT

Just a heads-up that due to a combination of factors, I'll be skipping today and also Saturday and Sunday. I can do tomorrow (Freeze) though, as I have an old friend in need of a rebuild that fits the theme quite nicely.

Not as proud of this as I was of Zircon, as it's kind of a rush job, but I got my Day 2 bot done regardless!


It's a (very underweight) hammer that loses control when it swings and starts flailing about. Like it's attacking in a mindless rage, get it? It takes heavy inspiration from my old bot Valkyri3, but is an entirely new robot built from scratch.

Tomorrow's gonna be fun...

Here we go, not my best work (because my skinning is absolutely horrendous) but it's a robot
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

tbh you deserve extra credit just for not making a spinner like the rest of us

Hopefully Day 2 ("Mindless") throws up some more varied designs.

Right, how's this for a ring spinner?


I've wanted to build a HS with this kinda chassis shape for ages. The idea was to make it look like one of those rings you see in cartoons where the diamond is comically oversized. Unfortunately, the teeth very slightly clip through the Perm... ah well, such is life. Something to fix after the month is over.

Let's keep the bots coming!

- Large Beater Bars: 5*
- Medium Beater Bars: 4*
- Small Beater Bars: 6*

This looks like a typo, should be 4-5-6. Limits look okay other than that, will have to check Tearaway as I believe it has 12 small beaters and the limit is 10.

I for one will definitely enter the LW tournament, though I don't know what with.

I meant to bump this earlier, but just a quick reminder that this starts TOMORROW! Day 1's theme is "Jewelry" - start planning out your ideas!

They do in DSL-IRL, so I don't see why they wouldn't in RR2. There's generally a limit as to how many interchangeable versions you can have, though.

Great tourney as always! Very much looking forward to the next one!

haha long boi

Seriously, though, that's a pretty unique design. Long, narrow, and with a nice big bar. Needs a custom skin but it's pretty good for a first effort. What's the weapon motor?

If the entries are half as memey as Wen's other tourneys then I'm throwing Original the Robot into the mix because why the hell not  heck

That arena's looking nice, as is the sawblade. The big spiky ramming plate gives me an arcade-style feel, it's not the kind of thing you'd see on a real-world combat robot but exactly the sort of thing that looks cool in video game form.

from what I'm seeing and hearing from other players, 81kJ is a serious amount of power.

You are like little baby. Watch this.


...I'm gonna need to gear this thing down. Every time I hit something it spins helplessly in circles for a few seconds while the weapon spins back up.

They cancelled the Kickstarter as they realised they weren't going to make the funding goal

Press F to pay respects

BOTM is fine, apart from the increasing schedule slippage where whoever's in charge of making the threads keeps forgetting. I think there was one month that got missed entirely. So it just needs to be a little better organised.

As for Challenge Belt, I don't even know what the current format is. Is it still just a matter of putting yourself forward as a challenger and waiting your turn?
