RedAce's IRL Tournament Thing - Discussion
« on: November 27, 2017, 12:59:06 PM »
[LOGO.PNG]

In all fairness, I've had an idea for this for a while now and I planned on hosting an IRL tourney to end on a high note back in March, but Doot made something not only similar, but also completely overshadowed mine in every way.  So I decided to hold back on that idea for a bit, then I decided to do a small mini tourney in Ironforge for the summer just to make sure I still had it in me for tournament hosting.  It wasn't my best as I found myself distracted on other life things and just having other issues with my laptop.  This time, it's going to be a tournament I will put all of my priorities on.  I want to make this the best tournament I will ever host, and one that I will feel proud of completing.  I'm probably not going to start this quite yet, but I'd like to create as many improvements and such before this enters signups.

GENERAL RULES:
- DSL 2.2 CW's
- IRL Building Style
- 48 bots will Compete
- Once bot per member, but if signups aren't completely filled up for a while, then I will extend for another week and allow secondary entrants.
- I'm willing to AI if you are not able to, but don't complain what I AI'd your bot or you will disqualified automatically (It will not change once the SBV thread is up.)
- I will only enter if there is less entrants than desired

BUILDING RULES:
- DSL 2.2 Bots only
- Cruiserweight bots only (399.1 - 600.0 KG)
- Very Strict IRL Rules Apply
- Walkers/Shufflers will get an additional 200 KG, but that weight must be used for the mechanism itself.
- Multibots will be allowed, but at least weigh at least 35% of the total weight limit of your bot.
- Modular robots will be allowed, but you can enter a maximum of four configurations and you must PM the specified bot type for the configruation to fight.
- The DSC IRL packs will be allowed (Even future releases)
- The following components are allowed, but you can only use one on your entrant: Mechavore disc, Microvore disc, Moros blade, Frenzy hammer, Minion disc, Overkill blade
- You can send your own component reskins as long as you provide the necessary files to me when you enter and the ONLY change to said component(s) is the skin.
- The only cheatbot2 Components allowed are the Flatmotor, Slow Flatmotor, and the Overkill Motor.  Everything else is banned.
- BFE, AAM, OBJRA2 and Every Sergepatcher Component Freedom tool, except for the weight bonus one, will be allowed for IRL purposes
- You can make an update once and only once (The only exception if it's a skin change or anything extremely minor), but I will stop allowing updates when signups close.
- If an updated bot is illegal, then I will use the original bot you sent me.

BATTLE RULES:
- 3 minute length matches
- The Robot Wars 2016 Arena (Reskinned) will be used for this tournament
- Any multibots competing must have at least 55% of the total robot to be considered eliminated, and any melees they fight in will have the heaviest robot compete.
- Havoks will not be shown in the main videos, but if a robot havoks three times that costs the match, then the robot will be eliminated and will be referenced to "technical issues" (Havoks will be shown in a separate standalone video)
- There will be eight heats, with three 1-on-1 qualifiers per heat.  Winners will advance to the main competition, but losers will go on to a redemption rumble for a second chance.  The winner of that will earn a spot back in the competition (In other words, "Dutch Robot Wars style Heats")
- I will be judging every bot on a spectrum of 45 points from three categories: Aggression, Damage, and Control (in other words, Classic Battlebots style judging).

My (Possible) Entries

Prizes:
I didn't have much, but I do plan on at least giving first place the AI of all the entrants, the arenas, and a Robots Designs folder with all the entries to play around with, including the rejected ones.

tl;dr Dutch Robot Wars but with Cruiserweights

So that's the gist.  Any comments, constructive critism, and other ideas are appreciated.

No, I haven't forgotten about this, even if the last post makes it look like I have.

Firstly, I'm debating on removing the BW side tournament.  Yeah it would be cool, but the real question is would enough people even enter that in the first place?  I feel it's just gonna stall for the main competition which will be the star of the tournament.  Speaking of which, you have until Saturday to choose the official weight class.

I also need a name.  I have a couple ideas, but I feel I should try to come up with something that doesn't sound like I picked one from clicking the random article button on Wikipedia.  I ask this as I'll get to creating the arena skin and logo up around when the poll ends.    I am tempted to have "The Tournament that Nobody Asked for" as the small subtitle, because it makes sense.

Thanks to everyone who has voted, we now have our weight limit which will be Cruiserweights!

I also removed the BW side tourney as I feel that's just gonna slow things down and I don't think a lot of people seem to be that interested in it.

Sorry for being late, had to cater to some IRL responsibilities, but I will certainly put my focus in this.  Starting with a new name, logo, and arena skin coming in later.  Don't worry, I'll make sure it releases sometime within the next three days.  I also would like to get a mock heat going with some bots I built to show the format of the competition and editing in case some people are confused.  Lastly, I have... something else coming soon.

RedAce could you ai my clusterbot if i enter it?, i must be doing something wrong because the game keeps crashing but i can't figure out what the problem with the ai line is i hope you don't mind. (not that i don't know how to ai since i did it before with Whiplash it just seems that the game does not want to accept it)
