Jesus I had this idea earlier today, ok I'll take a shot every time a bot uses TMW3R2 locked as their drive.

Bots must have a chassis
No extenderbots?! You monster...

Notes:
I decided to enact the chassisbot rule due to several factors
1. the majority of tracked bots I've seen are chassisbots
2. havoks r dum and ruin good fights
3. uhhhh... chassis skins  heck
In order to ensure that a whole bunch of overheads or gutrippers murder the chassis in 3 seconds, I chose the Starcore arena to provide ample flipout zones. This should hopefully balance the field out and provide builders with the choice to try and go for the oota or bite into that juicy chassis for a KO
Oh. Nvm.

Spikefan rebuild is OP, wish Y connectors weren't so fugly.

8 ztek HS... man after my own heart. Try a 5ztek, 45 claw HS.. I wanna see your setup. I could only come up with one.

you have 2 days


what i got while trying to keep the weapon motors symmetrical. one of the zteks is chassis mounted, which probably isn't the best, but i don't really see any other decent setups outside of the one you made being possible within the ro7 (unless you're okay with it being messy af or you use 1 extender to mount the claws)

meme video of the setup/build. i highly recommend muting the vid

I'm up for it, but let's just hope that all entries don't AGOD in any matches

Yes. I named the smartzone as flip and the control as flip (also tried changing them both to fire but to no avail) as well. Every other robot that I've AI'd with a flipper has worked fine, it's just Gravity that doesn't seem to want to cooperate.
The control should be Flip with a capital F
Just as a note, this is for Flipper2.py. Omni.py should have the smartzone be named "weapon" and the control called "Fire". Smartzones are all lowercase, controls have their first letter capitalised.

i don't think thats possible without using a single extender to hold the claws or making it beyond messy but ill give it a go

I'll probably be hosting another wacky gimmick tourney like this in the near future :dance:
Well here's that tourney. Tracks are hardly ever used in IRL builds due to their immense weight, giant size, and overall less practicality when compared to wheels. So I was wondering how a tournament of only tracked bots would go.
 


GENERAL RULES
-DSL IRL HW
-16 Entries
-Double Elimination Bracket
-Starcore Arena

BUILDING RULES
-800kg or less
-Only allowed form of movement is with tracks
-Bots must have a chassis, no pixelchassis
-Multibots are allowed but both must use tracks for drive
-A bot that utilizes servos or a hammer not powered by bursts will be accepted only if it is already AI'd
-DSC's IRL Pack, Component Freedom, kix's locked npcs, and BFE is all allowed.
-I retain the right to reject any bot for any reason
-One bot per person unless the 16 person limit cannot be reached where it will be opened up to two

FIGHT RULES
-3 havok resets allowed per match (will not be present in vid)
-3 min fight
-Judges Decision will be based on Damage Aggression and Control with each category splitting 9 points between the two bots
-If a robot has all of its tracks removed then it will be considered knocked out
-A manual countdown will be initiated if

What do you guys think and would you be down to enter this?
