As far as the arena, it'd be nicer if it wasnt stretched and such low res. TheOrcCorp might be able to give your the resolution of the OW arena just as a reference given its high quality

with the current state of the game, I’m going to have to postpone Season 2 until further notice. If we’re extremely lucky, the free cam for the SvL arena (when it’s finished, I have no idea when) will be compatible with the most stable build, Feb 16, and I can actually get to filming. If not, either we pray for a new stable build to come out, or I have to cancel SvL and figure out what to do. I’m not ****ing happy with this. I’m not pissed off at the developers, I’m just pissed off at the situation. It’s really hard to just cancel an 88-bot tournament. But it’s also really hard to do a tournament with a bunch of outdated entries. Hopefully this all works out in the end, because I don’t know what the **** to do if it doesn’t.

Literally anybody who's played an in-development version of a game before could tell you that the chances of stuff from one development version still being compatible down the line are basically nil. You should have seen this coming.
Why did you feel the need to tell me this? It's kinda ****ing obvious that stuff in this game become incompatible eventually. I know how development works. Again, I'm more worried about if there's a stable build I can use the Free Cam on. The SvL arena that I currently have works on  builds Feb 16-now. I just am unsure if the version with the Free-Cam can work on Feb 16 when it's finished being made, as it's the most stable build.

Ngl, if you knew "how development works" you wouldn't be making such a big deal over the action cam :^)

I was born in England, but have Welsh and Scottish roots. Would I enter as England, United Kingdom, or could I choose to represent either of the others?

Did you actually change anything aside from the colour? Nice bot either way chief.

Its a major extender rework, really cleaned up the way it was built to allow for tougher panels in the places where its needed. Ideally I could add Wide Meds. But that's such a cunty way to make these kind of flippers imo

While this ruleset is the barrier for official tournaments, you can set up your own barriers within.
So far I've only seen one tournament on GTM that uses this ruleset.  I don't have any complaints about the ruleset, in fact I'd like to see it used more so I can see how a wide range of my designs do in competition under it.
No offense but I trust Geese's sagely wisdom and the experienced builders who we picked as part of the council who have been playing the game for years now over newcomers acting like they know everything about the game. (Nicky/Koi/MrMatthews I'm looking at you).
None taken.  I just want my tournament to be different from the rest.
To give you some stats (thanks to Geese):
HP - Perms have 2274hp compared to Flats which have a whopping 18000hp. That's a massive difference.
Max Speed - Perms are FASTER at 200 max compared to Flats at 175.
Torque - Perm has 30 comapred to 20 from Flats.
Mass - Perms are 90kg compared to a Flat which is 11kg. 79kg difference...and also the Perm is significantly larger and even when chassis mounted, will smoke when it takes damage due to the low hp.
That's why geese made the superflats to balance them, and even then they may need more balancing.  Bustymotors anyone?  Jokes aside, the restrictions on flats are reasonable.
I've been noticing that people seem to focus too much on winning these days. People want to win OW, they want to PWS etc etc but they don't focus on how their bots look and/or they cast away advice to make them look better. IRL is about the aesthetics/look of a robot AS WELL as performing well. It's a tough balancing act, I get it (like seriously, the Gnaws line is frustrating me atm doing this) but it's worth it. Don't ruin the atmosphere with your "Win or I Quit" attitude.
Learn from Will Bales, if you wanna win, try to look badass while trying to win.

I'm pretty sure Geese made the Superflats as a chadtier sh**post. They deal damage lol

Whilst "Looking badass whilst trying to win" is one of the best ways I can describe the spirit of IRL, I can also say that people just dont do this, employing lazy design work or extenderwork which is more hassle for them and the tournament host.

That, and everything else Orc addressed in this post really needs to stop. There is no pride in having low standards, and people need to stop patting themselves on the back for going against the grain, when the grain is exactly what's trying to push people to be better.

A trend I've noticed is that the people who get into this game and aim just for competitiveness, or have it as their primary goal tend not to stick around, because they realise pretty quickly that winning really isn't all that hard if you abandon all other goals, and I feel like too many people are consigning themselves to growing disillusioned with the game for no real reason other than their own over-competitiveness.
This is why, if you're gonna run competative tournaments, they should be in a competitive meta. You can't really keep to the spirit of IRL building if winning the tournament is your ultimate focus.

gee it's almost like irl ra2 was never supposed to be a proper competitive meta 🤪

Yo, I'm ngl, if none of you are gonna leave anything helpful in this thread, then why you here.

Swiftly moving on from boomer autism, I think theres a possible mindset of "everything has to be super compact" which could possibly result in people finding the perms, etc clunky and overly large, its just a thought on why people might have an issue and thus are using the flatmotor.
