Active Tournaments / OW5 Sign-Ups - 20/48 Teams
« Last post by TheOrcCorp on Yesterday at 05:30:02 PM »
We've had 20 out of 48 teams enter so far, thanks everyone for entering/showing interest! If you've sent robots and I haven't messaged, don't worry: just haven't checked them yet. Will continue tomorrow!

There's still plenty of time to enter with no set deadline yet. However as soon as we hit 48 teams (IF we do), a week's deadline will be issued! Keep your eyes peeled!

OW5 signups are open, so gonna show off my lineup for it here.

Pitstop and Deep Blood are exactly as I showcased them yesterday in my monthly update.  Circuit Breaker (while not shown in the splash) has had the casters on the end of its arm replaced w/ a tail like the one on Ice Pick.  This is due to the bot being 2kg overweight, despite it being the version I built it up to 794kg post-crash patch, as seen in september's monthly update.  The tail also makes it jump much less when swinging its arm overhead.  Hopefully they will perform better than my bots last series, especially Pitstop.

I like the new Snowstorm, but I'm a little disappointed that the panels on the corners of it cover up the chassis skin the way they do.

Everyone's posting their OW5 lineups so I guess I'll post mine. Nothing really new or exciting but most of my bots have been updated both visually and performatively since you last saw them.


Missing Link: Has been cleaned up a fair bit since you last saw it but is otherwise the same. This is my reserve entry so you may not be seeing it in the main series

Claymore (Seeded 16th): Pretty major rebuilds since it was showcased here. Way, way cleaner with the panels all lining up properly at last. Finally it looks better than Sabre (the bot it replaced). I also skinned up a couple of panels just to make it look a little nicer too. Hoping this one does well.

Bocuma (Seeded 3rd): Has actually seen a near total rebuild to bring it in weight with the 2.4 component changes but as always it retains the same design. There has been one change in terms of competitiveness though: it now has a Dantomkia-style "kickstand" bit at the back to try and keep the wedge on the floor as one of Bocuma's biggest weaknesses was how it would wheelie when hitting an opponent allowing them to get under what is otherwise a near-peerless wedge.

Speed Demon VII: My lock in for the series. Wedgelets are spaced further apart than when I last showcased this as a result of experience in PWS (which resulted in it eventually winning the final installment of that tournament). 2.4 freed up some weight which I've used to both substantially buff the armour, and also to make the transition of the wedge/anti spinner pieces into the chassis cleaner.

Phosphor: My qualifier bot. Has also seen a total rebuild as a result of being nearly 200kg overweigh in 2.4. By building much smarter I was able to get it in weight without really sacrificing looks at all. Hammerbots are never great in RA2 but as hammerbots go this is a pretty decent one, and managed to push Greedee pretty hard in its last tournament appearance which hopefully bodes well.

Ohhh sh** Orc's Wars is back and I'm in it!

Moving counter-clockwise from the top left, we have:
Phantom 5 (seed)- Back for one last ride, the only change I've made is a slight update of the teeth to make the drum look like it gets more bite. Despite it being my seed, I have the least faith in Phantom to really live up to expectations.
Foo Fighter (lock-in)- I showcased his in the Botober thread, but never on here. In short, it's a Crossfire clone with the supports mounted on an axle to allow it to get to its wheels more easily. In testing, it's actually been a lot more powerful tan I'd expected, so I'm hoping it gets a couple wins in the tourney.
Twisted Fate 2 (qualifiers)- This is a pretty old build, but I've been waiting a long time to finally give this version of Twisted Fate a tournament debut (I know it entered MM3 but I'm not sure if that tourney's ever happening now). I have high hopes for it, so it'll probably fail spectacularly to get out of qualifiers. That seems typical.
Machina Non Grata (reserve)- Another pretty old build, and probably unable to score KO's, but I've got a bit of a soft spot for this bot and it was easy enough for me to AI. Made some cosmetic improvements to the sides with ll the weight the crash patch gave me to work with, so it'll at least look cool as it gets torn to shreds.

The one on the left reminds me of Grog The Vengeful from your AI pack for DSL 2.4

That thing beat the crap out of my main entry of OW5. Hopefully it won't be my opponent. :gawe:

Full team of my Orc's Wars Series 5 entrants:

All are upgraded machines in some form or fashion, and some all were updated for a while now, as I assumed the previous ruleset would be kind to these bots.   :dumb)
