So, after hosting Robot Emperor, a thought came to me recently. I love the tourney system of challenge belt, as well as the seven weightclasses, so why not do the challenge system unofficially. So here is my idea. I plan for it to cover all seven weightclasses, with 16 entries each, single elimination, and for it to be like GTM: Open Event in frequency.

Tournament Rules:
- DSL 2.2 IRL
- Seven weightclasses (AW, BW, LW, MW, CW, HW, and SHW)
- 1v1
- Single elimination
- 16 entries for each weightclass
- One entry per person
- There will be a 16th spot playoff in case I get more than 16 entries per weightclass through some excessive sending by builders
- I can AI your bot if you can't do it yourself. It will be preferred if you send your own AI however
- Just a note for future tournament, but the system this tournament runs mean that the champion of this will have to defend their title next series against the winner of the bracket.

Build Rules:
- Maximum weight: 125 (AW), 175 (BW), 250 (LW), 400 (MW), 600 (CW), 800 (HW), and 1200 (SHW)
- DSL-IRL rules (see TheRoboteer's IRL Guide for it)
- Bots must show controlled movement
- RA2CF, OBJRA2, BFE, any Colored Components, NPC Fix, Battery AP Fix, Locked NPC's, etc allowed
- Reskinned component, and even custom component allowed, as long as they have the same, or inferior stat to an existing component, and accurate colission mesh.
- Any cheatbot2 components are allowed, as long as they are not too abusive, or are aesthetic in nature.
- Typhoon teeth limit is 6 small typhoons, and 4 large typhoons
- Mechavore and Minion Disc limit are one, while Microvore and Mini Minion Disc limit are two
- Thwackbots, SnS, and Meltybrain allowed. However, I will nerf them in the AI by setting their range value to very low so they won't be very broken. Meltybrain must also use LED's around their body to simulate RL melty AI
- Clusterbots, Minibots, and Drones allowed. In case of drones, I will use Doot's modified invisible and 0.1kg hover engine component. They must also have powered fake rotors
- Modularity allowed, in all forms, including major, minor, cluster or minibot change, and AI. Modular configs will also be unlimited.
- Shufflers and Walkers allowed. Shuffler will gain 50% weight bonus, while walker receives 100%. However, you must AI walkers yourself.
- You can send updates, or replacements as much as you want until signup ends
- for AI py, custom ones are allowed in addition to existing ones. However, no eternalflame, or other abusive AI's, including custom ones.
- In case I feel doubt about your entry, I will ask you about it. And in case I reject it, I will try to help you how to make it legal by saying what I think should be changed.

Battle Rules:
- Ring Arena (Reskinned)
- 3 minute battles
- For clusterbots, if more than 50% of their total weight is immobilized, they will be counted out.
- A bot will be given 10 seconds to show controlled movement in case they lost it, and a countdown of 10 seconds will start if they still fail to show it when the 10 seconds limit run out.
- In case of havoks, I will rerecord until there is a match with no havok. However, if the matches keep havoking even after a lot of rerecording, the one with the least havok will be used
- If the match keeps crashing or havok before a clear conclusion, like being ripped apart enough that it would be considered immobilized IRL, a judge's decision will be held
- For Judge's decision, there will be three categories of scoring, damage, aggression, and control, with 15 points each for them, for 45 points total. Those 45 points will be divided among two bots
 
My Entry:
I will also enter myself, leaving 15 free spots in all weightclasses
AW: Antbar Gen II
BW: Flipping Beetle Gen II
LW: OverCutter
MW: Di-Trouble Gen II
CW: V2
HW: OverChopper Gen III
SHW: OverCleaver Gen II

I'll probably throw some entries in the top 3 weight classes. My interest in the MW and lower classes is basically 0 these days though.

I'll just put some of my random newer builds in

This sounds cool. It reminds me of Doot's Robogames.

HE RAISE OF THE FLIPPERS HAS BEGUN!

Hope that not all my fights will end in a 5 second oota...

So after 8 votes minimum, I decided to open up signup. Feel free to send your bots now. Also, will do and sort my bots throughout the signup

Updated the entry list with entries that got accepted and rejected

Updated the list again

Updated once again with entries that got accepted and rejected:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zMbQzbU9_XYJDumauJjLO8uPkECH72VD6jiUAXTMWWg/edit?usp=drivesdk

Also for the tourney, with the amount of people interested, I'm considering an option to bump the amount beyond 16, with main tourney for each weightclass still being 16, but the 16th and beyond entries have to fight in a single elim qualifying part, with the winner of the entire bracket getting the 16th spot. Alternatively, I could make HW have 32 bots instead, and if I got a bit of overflow, have fights for the 32nd spot

Updated the entry list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zMbQzbU9_XYJDumauJjLO8uPkECH72VD6jiUAXTMWWg/edit?usp=drivesdk

4 spots left in AW before hitting the minimum of 16 and 1 spot left in HW before hitting minimum of 32

Also, since I have sorted all my entries, will notify you, but I'll give the deadline for the tourney. It will be by the end of Monday, and there will be an extension of a day, or end of Tuesday, for those who haven't manage to enter what they want by time for some reason

Oof. Well, that means 2 spots for HW before hitting the 32 minimum.

Also, the error is fixed

Updated the list again with accepted entries. Will check then all tomorrow because turns out I come back home tomorrow.

Also, one or two days left until end of signup
Title: Re: Gladiator's Row (Signup)
Post by: Billy5545 on May 13, 2019, 08:41:37 AM
Just to remind people, but signup will end but the end of tomorrow. After that, I won't receive entries anymore, and will make preparations with AI'ing and making splashes, before making the SBV, and then recording and editing

So, I have finished signup since Wednesday ago. However, I only bothered to update and finish the entry list now. So, after finishing signup, currently AI'ing now. Will do brackets and splashes after AI'ing. Also, SBV will be up in a while, like one or two weeks I'd say, because I have RL stuff and because of the sheer amount if entries I have to AI and make splashes for

Did I pm you the binding for Vampire Forever?

Did I pm you the binding for Vampire Forever?
Yeah. I have put the AI. It's being worked on now

Talking about AI'ing, I have three people helping me. Cringey, Joelcool51, and Bildschirm. After they help me, I will do all the splashes and release SBV as said before

How's the AIing going?
Title: Re: Gladiator's Row (Signup)
Post by: Billy5545 on May 30, 2019, 06:36:47 AM
Honestly, I don't AI all the bots myself save for the few the people who AI it can't. The first half is done, now waiting for the second half by Friday. I also start testing and making splash for the bots that are already AI'ed now

How is the AIing now?

Post by: Billy5545 on June 21, 2019, 09:01:32 PM
Since I get my SBV out and finished all the AI'ing, I will lock this thread
