Tournament Archives / Re: Retro Arena - Extreme

Good to see a new tournament already! This sounds fun but my only question is how would you get one winner (for the End of Year tournament) from all of these events?

You COULD do an 8 bot tournament with all these event winners:
Tag Team (both winners go through)
Flipper Frenzy
Axe Attack
Spinner Showdown
World Championship
Challenge Belt

Just food for thought, looking forward to seeing how this goes!

This is a good idea. I might do an 8 robot tournament for all of these winners then and have the winner for the End of Year Tournament and have these Top 8 as seeded robots for when the main series comes around.

Tournament Archives / Retro Arena - Extreme
« on: January 22, 2020, 08:53:37 PM »

Following the announcement of the 2020 official tournament ruleset, I'm going to work on something I've been wanting to do for a while, a classic Robot Wars themed tournament.

The first thing I will do is create a 'Robot Wars Extreme' style series, having a variety of events within a single episode, from qualifier events such as World Championship qualifiers and Mayhems for the Annihilator, to side events such as grudge matches.

The build rules will follow the official rules as stated previously, (shown below). You are allowed one robot per event. All robots have to be heavyweights (between 600kg and 800kg) although if you want to enter Cruiserweights that will also be accepted but not advised as it will make you have a weight disadvantage.

Building rules:

The arena will be a version of the original Robot Wars arena (I believe created by Wham) which is basically a cross between the DSL RW Arena and the RWRA2 mod arena. The walls are in between the height of the two so they aren't really high but not really low and the texturing is a lot better, so this arena seems best fit.

If an event exceeds the number of entries, unedited qualifier matches will be upload to see who qualifies for the event.
The events are as followed and the rules will be explained for each:

Mayhem/Annihilator - The mayhem format will be the same as Robot Wars Extreme. Six three-way melees will take place and one robot will qualify from each. However, as RA2 limits 4 robots per rumble, the six robots that won their respective mayhems will be split into two three-way melees. This time only one robot will be eliminated, leaving two robots from each fight, giving us four remaining robots. From their, the four robots will be wittled down to three, to two and then leave us our Annihilator champion. The annihilator will be a stand alone episode whilst the mayhems will play throughout the series.


Tag Team - An classic series event that ran for many years, the Tag Team allows you to have a robot by your side in a frantic 2v2. Eight teams are formed to create spaces for 16 robots, creating a knock-out stage style tournament.


Flipper Frenzy - One of my personal favourite events from Extreme was the Flipper Frenzy. Having four of the most powerful flippers against each other will create some high flying action. This event consists of a four way melee leaving just one winner.


Spinner Showdown - Not only is high flying action appreciated, but robots getting shredded provides just as much entertainment (permitting the game doesn't crash a dozen times in the process). Any spinner is welcome, whether it be a horizontal, vertical, drum, full body spinner or saw.


Axe Attack - Hammers and axes don't normally get much luck in the tournaments due to them being outside the meta, but in this melee an axe or hammer is guaranteed a victory.


World Championship - This will be one of the longest running events. For this we will follow the Extreme 1 World Championship format, where four battles featuring 4 robots in each fight it out to leave a single winner, progressing to a semi final and then final. Each heat will have one American and one British competitor as that is what was featured in the show and these are the two primary countries GTM uses are located in. For the countries that have a lot of competitors, qualifiers will be held as side events to determine what bots get to represent their country.


Grudge Matches - There have been a lot of rivalries within RA2 over the years, whether it's between the robots or the builders. Use this opportunity to challenge your rival to settle an old score in the only way possible, in the arena.


Challenge Belt - The Challenge Belt is where a robot is selected as a challenge belt holder. Robots then get to challenge the holder to a battle. If the holder wins, they keep the belt. If they get three consecutive victories they become the Challenge Belt champion. However, if the holder loses the battle then they give up the belt and the challenger becomes the holder, simple.


All Stars - There are many infamous robots within the community, with most users having at least one signature bot, but who is the best of the best? Use this opportunity to enter what you consider your most well-known competitor into a knockout tournament and determine yourself as the ultimate all star.


Wild Card Warriors - There are a lot of people joining the community even to this day, so this event allows the newbies an opportunity to try out one of their builds against the veterans.


Entries are open as of today, send in your bots and if you are competing in the World Championship let me know which nationality you are so the country you represent is the country you actually originate from.

**The fixtures aren't final and will be randomised once entries are full**

What exactly is community manager?

I'm guessing it's the spokesperson of the community when it comes to feedback and voicing further improvements based on community preferences.

I've been waiting for new bots to be shown for weeks now, glad you're back building now I've recently started.

This would be fun for a version of RA2 purely to make replicas as it's near impossible to make robots such as Apollo or Eruption without doubling on the bursts and flippers, but in order for me to download it or make it appealing the components would have to be organised and not scattered all over the place with blank previews.

If you can manage to make this mod neatly then sure I will give it a go.

All of these are beautiful, this is where I pray when I get a new PC that the game runs better and you release a massive pack with these in.

This is something I worked on between 2015-2017 before I was building DSL IRL. This was great for replicas due to the increased parts and easy building because of the amount of motor options so you can just find what fits. However, earlier in the year I added Resetti's mod and that made all my folders a complete mess of components and made it overkill.

So if you want to add all of them yourself, it works but just be prepared to spend a while dragging and dropping components.

Yup. This is the best RR2 showcase on GTM.

Is the download link for the updated version a full game or an add-on coz if it's the full game I don't really wanna spend ages downloading and extracting files that I mostly have with the older version.

Firstly, making the flatmotor higher up rather than using drums will save some weight. Speaking of the weight, it being at 295kg will make it stupidly light compared to other middleweights so wouldn't fair well, so either shred it down to under 249 for a LW or work up to 400kg for a MW.

I'm personally not sure on how to edit discs to have transparent parts, would be worth asking Bild on discord.

Also, if you need an invisible flipper component in the RWRA2 mod they have that exact components for the flippers that need added oomph.

Genuinely the best editing I've seen in an RA2 tournament...ever?

Ngl I like how unique this bot looks, would be nice to see a DSL version and see it compete in a tourney

Something new. I originally made a chassis in TinkerCad that would suit a 4 bar, but instead decided to go for a MAD/Tyrant Evo style flipper instead. Two Wide Mediums for the flipper provides plenty of flip and the 4WD provides plenty of grip. The flipper outwedges opponents decently and I'm really happy with the skin on it. It's a tiny bit on the slow side compared to robots with 4 NPC Fasts but even then this is something I would consider entering into an AI tournament.

On the RWRA2 mod there is an arena called I believe the Northern Tour arena which is a small box with metal railings. If you download that version of the game you can drag the arena and it's folder onto your version.

Alternatively if you type in cheatbot2 you can get three "IRL Bursts". You have options of like full power, half power and low power. Everyone has them in DSL so you wouldn't have to worry about making a new component.

Moving away from extenderbots, made a more unconvential design. With the power of OBJ and unoriginal ideas, I gave The Green Mouse from the Nickelodeon Robot Wars an axe. I hate that I actually like this thing.

Edit: Coz of the amount of triangles on the chassis it crashes whenever it touches an extenderbot, that's a RIP.
