its cool, hope it clears up. worse case if any of the bots dont pass tech checks the builder can just have a bit time to fix the issue while conferences are being drawn.

Just a reminder
Horrible color schemes make your bot 30% more unique
Have a boring 4wd vert you want to give personality?
Make it burn the retinas of the viewer with a full hot pink color scheme with a splash of purple
It totally won't look like absolute sh**

You mean till you get deported?

Nah as i have my permanent residency card now so cant get deported unless im a danger to Canada. 5 years till dual citizenship though which makes getting a new passport a pain in ass.

so, with the general lack of interest from the GTM side of things and RACCOON rules confusing me more and more every time i see a china robot sent my way to the point where i was genuinly wondering what they actually considered bannable, i'm considering doing the following;

-rebooting this thing entirely, still with the RACCOON mod, but with more "GTM-friendly" rules, in the hope that GTM builders actually start entering and this doesn't become just "RACCOON 5 but it's on GTM because yes"

anyone having any objections to this ?

i tried the mod and with more chassis armor and the actual gyro from motors throwing me a bit (literally) was bit awkward at first, but if theres clear rules that actually make sense the mod itself isnt as bad as first thought. The rules definitely need revising though but overall the mod itself is fine only issue could be the extender HP and possibly wheel hp?

Points bases on how many entries in the tournament would be a better idea, (16 entries = semi gives points, 32= quarters and so on). Then you can have a more average ranking not a case of who got lucky that particular tournament and have maybe top 14 at end of year compete with first and second getting a first round bye.

I'd be fine hosting IF tournament if people were actually interest in them but most people only play IRL and struggle to get 4 entries at times for IF.

Personally, I think the current way is fine, but it just needs more over sight. Bild has been sat on that belt for ages. Also maybe implement some rule to prevent this kinda of inactivity

From personal experience, doing that mini tournament is pretty time consuming and just exhausting to do, especially at that rate

With the inactivity I would still say having the belt defended once a week is easy to so can strip the current holder if it's not defended after maybe missing 3 weeks (non consecutive) miss one week it's a warning miss a second week at any time during current reign a second warning miss a third week your stripped of title. This also means only those that can be active will hold the title.

If the mini tournament is to time consuming would a challenge leaderboard be an option?
You can challenge anyone ( each person a max of once per month officially) if they accept once result is added to board the winner gets points. Use this for all challenges you can effectively always have someone top of the leaderboard so they can jump the queue every three months.
It will get people.more active when testing or building bots rather then just waiting for a tournament, it allows to fix issues before submitting bots for tournament and it will give people a chance to learn hosting in a more relaxed manner.

If we are going to keep the challenge belt then make it so it's relevant and always active. Either via number one contender tournament or by having a forfeit system if it isn't defended after a set amount of time. It keeps it active and encourage people to actually challenge for it, perhaps have a leader board for it based on how many times have won/lost matches for it so there's some sort of objective or bragging rights.

I would also adjust the rules a bit in that the Challenger sets the rules (provided not to stupid) and the champion must agree to them of forfeit. This is to encourage some tactical play, ( if racing robo you would say no flippers for example, or hoppin say no spinners.) Same with picking the arena the Challenger can set one they feel most comfortable with. This puts the champion at a disadvantage but also means they have to prove there skill in holding the belt, hopefully will also encourage new builds and for people feel more confident in challenges as they can fit the rules for there build style.
