Re: ROBOTS 3 HW: Blue Zenith vs Sideswipe

I won't use the spikes this time. I've got the armor to tank that spinner, the speed and control to keep my plow tanking the spinner, the torque to push BZ around, and the weird arm lifter turret thing to take control of it somewhat as I'm doing so. The strategy is to be careful for "swing the spinn...

Re: Abyss vs Whirlpool

I'll go right side up and use my undercutteriness to take out those front forks, after which the weapon will be hitting the ground and pretty ineffective. I'm as fast as Abyss and better controlled, especially considering its giant vertical spinner. I've also got the sideways wheel configuration whi...

Re: ROBOTS 3 Week 4: Hard News vs. Admiral

Angled spinners have turning difficulty, and I'd imagine that's definitely true for a 14 power one. Admiral's got the speed and the control to take advantage of that, get around to the side of Hard News, and flip it over. It has a self righter, but that will still stop its weapon, and by the time it...

Re: OWOBot 2000 vs. Terrible Toad Twins (Robot3 Wk4 FW)

Split up, have one Toad defensively tank hits with its weapon or back away as the other comes in and blasts OWO bot in the butt. I want to mess up those wheels, or maybe bend the side armor into them to immobilize OWO bot. OWO bot's relative lack of control will give me opportunities to do this. If ...

Re: Doomerang vs Sideswipe

No forks this time. I dunno what config Badnik's going with here but it's probably the one that can damage me slightly. Maybe? If he goes with that one it'll be much easier for me to keep Doomerang from spinning up again once I've stopped it though. In any case, I can tank Doomerang no problem and i...

Re: ROBOTS 3 MW: Uptown Funk vs Whirlpool

I'm starting right side up this time, for once. Whirlpool's got a comfortable 5 point weapon advantage against Uptown's Funky armor. That's going to mess up its flipper plate pretty quickly, and if I can catch a corner then UF is going to take catastrophic damage. I'll try hitting UF weapon-first to...

Re: Hallucinogen vs. Admiral (ROBOT3 LW Week 3)

We're both 2WD wedgers but Admiral's got the manueverability advantage here. We've both got the weight of the front of the robot resting on forky protrusions on the sides of our weapons, so wedging will be a matter of who gets a better angle on whom. That drum spinner is going to be doing very littl...

Re: Black Dog vs Terrible Toad Twins

Oh hey it's the other infamous Lazbot. Sup. We both do a lot of damage to each others' chassis. The drivetrains are all but identical. The big difference is that there are two Toadbots and only one Dogbot. What I need to do here is tank Black Dog with one Toad while smacking it in the ass or the whe...

ROBOT3 Week 2 HW: Sideswipe vs Hellhound

Hellhound, of course, has the pressing wedge while Sideswipe's is merely hinged. However...

Re: NASCARC Season 3 - Signups

I'll bring my two ladies back and get the cars spruced up for the new season. Quixote Racing Group is once again represented by Aislyn Riesling and Tamara Green . Riesling, coming off a successful 2018-19 season, is once again behind the wheel of #88 , sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts. Green struggled to...

Re: Di-Trouble Gen II vs Whirlpool

Waddup, large, exposed, 7-armor wheels. Whirlpool's going upside down again to protect its chassis from Di-Trouble's overhead attacking. This will also raise the rear part of its spinner high enough to perhaps hit Di-Trouble's chassis. My strategy will be to spin up, advance towards the enemy, and t...

Re: Admiral vs Nuclear Plague

Admiral's going to zip right in there, wedge that undercutter, and throw it into the air. Hopefully I can tank the inevitable hit with Admiral's slightly-more-armored flipper as I do so. Admiral's got the speed and control to potentially flank that spinner as well, after the first box rush, so I'll ...

Re: Mudcrab vs The Terrible Toad Twins

Hey, it's my first match of the week! (I think...) This is a pretty interesting matchup. A --crab-- filthy creature vs. two toads. A drum spinner vs. two verts. Neither of us will be able to damage the other, and the Mudcrab is only marginally faster than the toads. It's a mirror match, except Mudcr...
