CBC4 HW Semifinals: (1) Glacier III vs (4) Xtreme pneumatiX

Glacier III: 1 speed / 1 traction / 1 torque / 18 weapon (+2 shields) / 11 armour vs. Xtreme pneumatiX: 7 speed / 6 traction / 2 torque / 3 weapon / 12 armour I do enough damage that he probably doesn't want to do two things: 1) Attempt to smother me all fight long. 2) Wantonly fire the flipper. He...

CBC4 FW Semifinals: (9) Finishing Move vs (5) I Can't Believe it's not Tanto

Finishing Move: 8 speed / 7 traction / 1 torque / 11 weapon / 3 armour - 1 point of weapon armour to flipper vs. I Can't Believe it's not Tanto: 8 speed / 7 traction / 3 torque / 0 /12 My advantages: 1. I'm a spinner that can't be smothered. I equal him in speed and control, I have ample ground cle...

Semifinal Fight Card: Gothiq (FW & LW) and The Woodshed (MW & HW)

Former champions, dark horses, Hall of Famers, veteran contenders, and innovative and electrifying new designs. It hasn't mattered. All kinds fell in the Quarterfinals.

Re: Magnolia Pico vs Broken Tooth

Magnolia Pico: 4/2/1/16+1/9 - serious hammer config vs Broken Tooth: 6/4/1/13/6(+2 weapon) - all wedges on Gabe's a good debater, so expect the ARC-staple strawmen, weasel words, and one-sided analysis. The facts are as follows, though: 1) I kill him with potentially one hit and shock damage anywher...

Re: Glacier vs No Fun Machine

Glacier III: 1/1/1/16/11 - shieldless configuration vs The No Fun Machine: 3/1/1/16/9 - flail configuration I hate going with a stat-based argument. It kind of validates Gabe's thing about big spinners being boring and win/lose on load in. That said... I know. I hate myself. I win on stats. His flai...

CBC4 MW Quarterfinals: (4) Magnolia Grande vs (5) Momma Bear

Magnolia Grande: 4/2/1/16/7 vs Momma Bear: 4/2/1/0/13, 8/7/1/2/2 x2 1) I vaporize the cubs in one shot...at half power and, since they're 1/4 the weight of a normal bot, they'll barely even slow my weapon while dying horribly. 2) I have a TON of weapon coverage and range. About the only area where t...

Re: Vexed! Round 4: Avanti! and Fork the Wind vs Ayame and Blue Max II

Okay, their play here is painfully obvious, since FtW can't hurt me and can't survive even a single hit from me. Avanti to tank Blue Max and Pat's spinner to try to flip Ayame around. There are a few problems with this: 1) FtW is a tall, relatively narrow vert that is visibly non-invertible. One fli...

CBC4 FW Quarterfinals: (1) CIRCUITZ vs (9) Finishing Move

CIRCUITZ: 10/8/4/5/3 (config not declared) vs Finishing Move: 8/7/1/11/3 - 1 point of weapon armour to flipping arm 1) Her normally huge speed edge is marginal here: 12 to 10, and I have the better control and can match her strafing shenanigans. -2 control also means she's going to oversteer at leas...

After fourteen weeks and two-hundred-fifty-two individual fights, they're finally here: the Cherry Bomb Classic 4 playoffs! After perhaps the most competitive season in ARC's history, we have our qualifiers: the thirty-six best machines of the competition. Over the next few weeks, they'll duke it ou...

Re: Untitled Goose Robot vs Finishing Move

His challenge is to control me while being the noticeably slower bot. His best chance of doing that is clamping me and dumping me in the pit (after smacking into the grate 4 times) or the hazards. He also deals two impact damage. That shouldn't be enough to really impact the fight, but don't just di...

Re: Vexed! Round 3: Molten and Caffeine Machine vs Blue Max II and Vortex

Their play's obvious: Molten on the lightly-armoured Vortex, CF tanking me. This supposedly 2v2 fight is just going to devolve into another pair of 1v1s like everything else so far. Yeah, not gonna let that happen. Initially, we'll give them the matchups they probably want. Vortex is faster than Mol...

CBC4 MW Round 7: Magnolia Grande vs V-Trigger

MG: 4/2/1/16/7 VT: 5/3/1/14/7 I'm an undercutter vs a vert with a high-mounted disc and a large, lightly-armoured front wedge. I also win handily weapon to weapon. I could write 395 words or whatever or I could just say this: Spin up, move out, and hit him. Pay attention to angles to try to sent him...

Re: Glacier III vs Pink Wedge 2020

I do buttloads of shock damage to him. I'm running the lifters as bait and a contingency. He's a clamp. He'll try to clamp them. Duh. Pat's evolved beyond 'bot rush' at this point. So anyways, lifters up and out of the way, spin up, move out, be as evasive as a 1 speed bot can be. He can't appreciab...

Re: Vexed! Round 2: Thundercaller and Chimera IV vs Precision Engine and Blue Max II

a. We can deal deal significant damage. They can't. b. We have the fastest single bot in this fight: basically something that does what they do, only better. c. You don't see many x-axis spinners. Not many bots have a real plan for countering them aside from something something instability. Use this...
