NOVA 2 - PvP Series | SIGNUPS
« on: January 11, 2019, 12:29:01 PM »

Welcome to NOVA. This is a tournament series I am starting where I host a new bracket weekly/bi-weekly/whenever. Basically a mini-centauri with 4 competitors that I can do pretty casually. Each Nova will have a different theme/meta/gimmick/etc.

FORMAT:
4 entries. First come first serve. PM me or contact me on Discord if you want to join.
1v1, Bo3, double elimination. 3 min.
The Trov action cam will be used.
Major havoks will have the match restarted as necessary.
North American entrants STRONGLY PREFERRED. Overseas latency IS a problem. If you are not NA but do a lag test with me and it's acceptable then you will be accepted.

THIS WEEK'S RULES:
IRONFORGE MW BUILDOFF
You have 5 TINY MINUTES TO BUILD YOUR ROBOT. Don't build it ahead of time. I will record you building via parsec :gawe:. paint and wiring won't be counted in the time limit.
I reserve the right to deny any entry for any reason.
The stock CLAWTOP arena will be used this time.

SIGNUPS (close once I accept 4 competitors):
APPROVED
1. Reier
2. Team Code Red Robotics
3. 8bean
4. RedAce

BACKUPS/CURRENTLY UNAPPROVED
...

I WILL not be entering this time. why not.



For me to accept your entry, you need to send me a PM/discord message with ALL of the following files/information:
TWO IDENTICAL copies (or more) of your bot (each with differing keyboard controls, or alternatively, keyboard and gamepad) AFTER you build it and I watch you build it. The inputs can be whatever you want as long as you pick only ONE color from this diagram for each copy:
This is so two people can potentially play on the same keyboard layout. You will likely be required to drive with both at some point.
Timezone (Pacific, EST, etc)
Times and days available to fight (be generous please). Saturday and Sunday if at all possible. I will try to work with what you got. But remember that you have the potential to fight any entrant, so the more time you have available, the better. Fights under ideal circumstances don't last more than 10 or 15 minutes, but plan for perhaps up to 45.
Parsec user ID Link to register


I will not accept your entry until ALL of the above has been submitted and the bot is approved. If you are confused, ASK ME!

These will be pretty casual tournaments. Since there's only four entrants scheduling should be pretty easy and done on the fly. Preferably be available evenings and weekends. Just don't enter if you can only play at tues at 4:15-4:30am or some crap like that. Use common sense.



Feel free to ask questions. Here we go.

Okay, the only bot type I can throw together in 5 minutes is a WS if that's accepted...

it is not. controlled movement is a requirement. and you would need to pm me with all the info in the OP (timezone etc) before i can accept any entrant.

Okay. This is called "how hastily can you build a bot."
