The qualifying round will wrap up in ep 5, rumbles and racecars, as we have the only rumble of the round (and the only one outside of ep 6), a strong lineup of robots, and in the main event HW 3rd seed Ulipse taking on Pitstop.

In ep 4, treat carefully to avoid a broken heart, the 2nd seed of each weightclass will fight for the first time this season, as Picky, Apogee and Yalini are all in action.  Meanwhile, Wartread and Heartbreaker clash in the main event.

I've finally made changes to dual existence.  The upgrades include the weapon motor being upped from 24v to 48v, some more durability in areas around the front, notably the panel wedge now being steel rather than alu and a new srimech that's better than barely functional.  The robot also looks noticeably different.  The weapon motor's been moved forward, meaning no more need to cover it up w/ a drum, the sides have been redone, and the skinning has also been redone.  While typing this out I realised I forgot to skin a gap in the srimech like I did w/ the wedge for the disc to spin through!

In ep 3, the main event will see the last of the reigning champions, Keith, start its title defence in a rematch of last season's title playoff against Bone eater, after a series of fights which'll see seeded robots Displacement and Method look to get off to a strong start.

I decided that I'll run a series of RA2 tutorials in the form of youtube shorts alongside sakura sunrise 2.  These tutorials will mostly be around skinning and IRL building, but I may also sometimes do one about a different area of RA2.

Skinning tutorials

Building tutorials (no BFE)

Basic BFE

Software and other stuff used in tutorials

Sakura Sunrise 2 eps will release weekly, sundays at 7pm BST, starting this sunday w/ ep 1, a fresh start in a new temple, as the likes of Sugar Kicks and Microburst hope to carry the momentum from last season that earned them a seeding into this season, and in the main event, Scrapper is the first of the reigning champions to kick off its title defence.

Was watching BB on itv4 and this idea popped into my head so I decided **** it I'm gonna build it.  Had more fun building it than my other recent builds, possibly bc I just came up w/ it and built it there and then rather than having a several bot long list of ideas in my head w/ a set order to build them in.  This is Blue Phoenix, a flaming hammer that I came up w/ while watching Lockjaw v Duck.  Really happy w/ the job I've done w/ the panelwork on this one, feeling much better about the finished product this time than I have in quite awhile.  Might move the phoenix decal to the neon blue 60x100 and make it a tad bigger as I feel that'll look better than how it is rn but its late so that'll happen another day.

Rock in stone :cool:

2nd attempt at making a bot with a character driving it. Definitely getting closer to something that doesn't suck but unfortunately I couldn't fit a srimech in with the amount of panels needed to make the chassis shape. TWMR2 for all four wheels and piglet on the weapon. I might end up redoing this in the future since theres definitely room for improvement but I'm happy with how it looks and that's all I really cared about for this build.

Also you will get a gold star if you can guess where I got the driver from
The skinning on the front is wonderful, and a great looking body shape too.

My entry for draft day is Smilodon, a crusher which uses ice picks for teeth (that was an experiment I decided to take w/ the looks when seeing what parts were available to me in drafting).  Initially planned for it to be dinosaur themed but then saw how it looks w/ the ice picks and decided a sabretooth cat would be a better theme.  The head for the weapon weighs a **** ton so it has moments of rearing up when it starts moving, although it can still drive w/ its front on the floor for the most part.  It also has an issue w/ gyro flipping itself if it has a certain amount of forward momentum while turning.

Might switch for a lighter weapon head at a later date but considering I've already built it and there's not much time left, this'll have to do for now.

Also, I've got a little other thing to share...

This is Demon Princess, a britflipper w/ the design inspired by Tectonic.  When I thought of doing the eyes, I thought to myself "how about doing a grin too like Iron-Awe does?" and tbh it does very much have IA vibes.  Drives beautifully in the arena, if only there were parsec tournaments for me to enter it into.  Flipping power is a little low w/ the arc as it is (45 degrees to have the top bit of the flipper be lined up w/ the sloped bit behind it when fired), kept it as it is for the splash bc I feel it'll look better than going wider, but will likely widen it while making sure the panel wedge can get under stuff.

Was hoping that my first new build of the year would've been finished weeks before now, but eh.  Deepest Blood is a return to the big vert roots of one of my oldest lines of robots, but this time it actually looks good as a big vert.  The tail which I added in response to feedback received on discord means the bot can't self-right just from the disc hitting the floor, but it still can w/ gyro!  Although idk how well that'd work in AI, but I have the version from before I added the tail backed up so if the AI shoots itself from trying to gyro self-right, I can just use that version.  As for the green you can see in the disc, that's just the backdrop used to ss the bot and didn't want to crop out the semi-transparent bits in the disc so I could show them off.

Third entries are open for CWs only (decided it wouldn't be worth doing the same w/ MWs since there's only 2 spots left).
