Re: CBC4: Behind The Scenes (The Event Reports Thread)

Round 2 Report: Cherry Bomb Classic 4 started out with a bang on the first day – sometimes literally. There were already two LiPo fires shutting an arena down for 45 minutes, and not one, not two, but THREE robots got split in half! Meanwhile, I was sitting in the pits doing “preemptive repairs.” M...

Re: CBC4: Behind The Scenes (The Event Reports Thread)

Round 1 Report: Cherry Bomb Classic is definitely the biggest and highest-production value event in robotic combat today, with a TV crew and… way too many arenas. I think there’s ten of the things this year, with filming spread out over multiple warehouses and old aircraft hangars. This makes trans...

CBC4: Behind The Scenes (The Event Reports Thread)

This is a thread to post your own "event logs" for CBC4 - think the various builder blogs discussing their time at Battlebots. Talk about repairs, event parking, the silly RC car a YouTuber brought to the pits, and all the other "behind the scenes" stuff!

Ori vs Wasp (CBC FW Week 3)

STATS: Ori: 7/7/2/4/10 (+2 wedge) Wasp: 9/7/3/2/9 CONFIGS: FORKS CONFIG PLEASE. STRATEGY: First off there’s a visible gap between his gray outrigger wedges and the ground but none for the lifter, and his signup doesn’t say anything about them being hinged. I might have a substantial wedge advantage ...

Re: WK2 HW: Wallop vs Electro-Death

GHOST-RPING FOR BADNIK96. Normal (forks and useful spinner) config. Spin up, get into the middle of the arena. Wallop can easily KO me if it gets a good hit in, so be very careful to avoid going at him head-on. I have a substantial speed advantage, and while his control ratio is better in theory, in...

Re: Hoarfrost vs Unnamed & Untamed (CBC4 MW rd. 2)

GHOST-RPING FOR BADNIK96. FORKS ON. Quick note: Hoarfrost’s wheels stick out the top, but the shape of his chassis means that with it resting on the front they just barely don’t touch the floor. We both have to self-right with our flippers. With that out of the way: he’s just slightly faster, but hi...

STATS: Defenestrator: 7/6/2/4/11 (+1 top plates) Dreadnought: 7/6/3/3/11 CONFIGS: Using the Anti-Hammer config (lifter and shock-mounted top armor, no clamp). Alex said Dreadnought's using his sawtooth wedge. STRATEGY: Yes the anti-hammer config. No, I’m not an idiot. Snake-style clamps are backdriv...

Either of us can easily KO the other or inflict severe shock damage, and also this is Woodshed with two horizontal spinners which ...

And that means the pipe organ is MINE! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wy5Fga6MQD4 Chinesium’s got a powerful weapon, and I can’t afford to keep taking full-speed hits from it. Rush at the start, but since this arena’s huge and...

Re: cbc4 prediciton thread

Featherweights: 1. Gas Gas Gas: Very fast lifter. 10/10/3 drivetrain is insane, and it has an actual weapon even if it lacks KO potential. Will probably take a couple Ls from drawing literally anything with a weapon but I think it can make the playoffs regardless and has championship potential. 2. ...
